TRIGGER FOODS AND HEALING HERBS
Food sensitivities such as to dairy or gluten may be a trigger for sinusitis. To test for this, eliminate a suspect from your diet for a month and watch for an improvement. If you identify a need to cut back on dairy, be sure to include calcium-rich foods such as nuts, seeds and leafy greens in your diet. If you reduce wheat, get fibre from fruit, veg, nuts and seeds.
Herbs that can ease sinusitis include golden rod, horseradish, eyebright, golden seal and garlic. Take these in tincture or tablet form, at the highest dose. It also helps to add garlic to meals as it has antibiotic and mucolytic properties, to kill germs and thin the mucous, so it can be eliminated from the sinuses.
