Anatomy of Maxillary Sinus - Sinusitis TreatmentsCraig Hitchens Therapies - Sinusitis Eliminate These: All Wheat products. Pasta, bread, etc. Be very thorough. Wheat intolerance is a major cause of recurrent sinus All Milk and or Dairy Products. These are also a major cause of Recurrent sinus. All caffeine. This include cola drinks, tea and coffee. All refined sugars. No candy, no cakes. Red Meat. This can be a cause of recurrent sinus also. All alcohol. Avoid it period. All fatty, processed and junk type foods. These are all very common food triggers to allergic reactions that cause sinus and these are also known toxins to the human body. These are especially hard on the liver and liver toxicity is also a cause of recurrent sinus. This is commonly not considered by conventional doctors.
Herbs/Herbal Medicines: Echinacea - Use a tincture or liquid echinacea and take double the adult dosage three times daily for ten days. Rest from it for 2-3 days and resume. Do this for 2-3 months at least. If you should experience some loose bowel movements, simply halve the dose till it receeds. this is going to really boost up your immune system. Garlic - Take the maximum adult daily dosage of garlic each day as well as using as much as you can in your cooking. Both this and echinacea are antibacterial, antiviral, antimicrobial and antibiotic in action and will help your immune system immensely. Golden Seal - Take the maximum adult dosage daily. This is going to help your immediate infection. It is very strong and is good for staph infections. Astragalus - Take this when you begin to feel better. Do not take it right away. This is a long term immune enhancing herb. It is adaptogenic in action and nature which means it will adjust to the stresses the body is under..very handy little herb. Dandelion - Liver cleansing herb. Your liver is quite probably toxed up and this is a major cause of sinus problem that seeming come and never go. Milk Thistle - Another great liver herb. My recomendation is to either take these two (Dandelion and Milk Thistle) as separate herbs, both complement each other well and are no problem to take together, or to use a liver toning and cleansing preparation like "Livertone Plus". These are excellent. Either way you need to cleanse and support the liver. Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca Tree Oil) - Try to find some of this and use it every day. Place a few drops into a steam bath or steamer and inhale the steam. Do this several times per day. Tea Tree is a very powerful antibacterial and antiseptic and using it this way places it directly at the infection site. I have seen sinus infections clear in a week using this alone! This is a very important aspect of treatment so please do not let it slip. Looking for something logical on Sinus, we stumbled on the information provided here. Look out for anything illogical here.

Nuts, grains (Except wheat for now), legumes, pulses. This includes things like lentils, cashew nuts, almonds, chick peas, oats, raw rice and so on. These are very detoxifying to the liver and contain many essential minerals needed for proper immune function.
