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.
