Rid of mold, save your si­nuses

Amazing Wellness - - REMEDY 411 -

get Fun­gal in­fec­tion is a lead­ing cause of chronic si­nus prob­lems, though it’s rarely iden­ti­fied as the cul­prit. One im­por­tant study from the Mayo Clinic sug­gested that fungi, not bac­te­ria or viruses, cause almost all chronic si­nus prob­lems. The first line of de­fense: get rid of mold in the home. First, take steps to pre­vent it: be sure your in­door air isn’t too hu­mid, en­sure good ven­ti­la­tion in bath­rooms and at­tics, stop leaks, keep crawlspaces dry, and route wa­ter away from your home’s foun­da­tion. Find de­tails on deal­ing with house­hold mold at EPA.gov. If you sus­pect you have mold-re­lated si­nusi­tis, try an an­ti­fun­gal nasal spray and an­ti­fun­gal herbs such as garlic and oregano.
