Kick That Sinus Infection...For Good!
Product Spotlight: Sinus Pressure Relief Roller
A sinus infection (also referred to as sinusitis) is a painful condition often caused by an infection or inflammation of the mucous membranes lining the bony cavities behind, above and on each side of the nose. An acute sinus infection is often accompanied by congested headaches, and a fever.
In many cases, doctors of functional medicine will prescribe essential oils like tea tree oil and oregano oil in replacement of conventional medications because they’re just as effective and without the adverse side effects. An article published in the Journal of Phytomedicine evaluated the relationship between various essential oils and found that none (including tea tree) caused adverse reactions when taken with several different antibiotics. In fact, they discovered that some essential oils even had a positive synergistic effect, meaning they could help prevent antibiotic resistance from developing!
Whether you’re dealing an acute or chronic infection, it’s important that you deal with it promptly. Before using the Sinus Relief Roller, I recommended applying a xylitol based nasal spray. This is because xylitol has been shown to be an effective disruptor of biofilms – which are a protective measure used by the pathogenic viruses that have invaded your sinuses.
Biofilms are a protective layer created by colonies of bacteria. The bacterial colonies produce these biofilms to provide what is essentially an impenetrable film that is extremely hard to disrupt. When at full health these biofilms are effective at blocking attempts by the immune system to disrupt them. This is why people who have chronic sinus infections are sometimes unable to cure themselves even with multiple rounds of antibiotics.
The biofilms simply keep the antibiotics out. The presence of these biofilms also inhibits the ability of remedies (like essential oils) from doing their healing work. You should be able to find this at any drug store or health food store.
By introducing xylitol via nasal spray you are providing a solution to the problem since xylitol breaks up biofilms.
