Natural Sinus Remedies
Athletes are often plagued by frequent illness like chronic sinusitis, colds and flu. Natural treatment for these conditions can help you get healthier quicker, and prevent recurrences so you aren’t sick all winter long.
It’s thought that about 90% of these illnesses are caused by a virus. Antibiotics will do nothing for viral infections, such as cold, flu and sinusitis. However, natural medicines work in two ways to get you healthier:
-Many have anti-viral effects, that will help kill the virus
-They boost your immune system, making it stronger so it can kill the virus faster that just waiting for your body to take care of it.
Frequent exercise is actually good for your immune system, however too much actually makes you more susceptible to frequent illness. If you find yourself getting more than 1-2 colds, flu or sinus infections each year, your immune system isn't functioning up to par.
And, it’s not an antibiotic deficiency that causes all those colds, flus and sinus infections! Killing the bugs with antibiotics doesn't support your immune system at all. Taking a preventive approach will keep you healthy, rather than waiting around to get sick.
Frequent illness is a sign of a weakened immune system. Here are some things to help support it:
Acute immune is great for treating any illness. We recommend this instead of an antibiotic (because antibiotics don’t work on viruses) to clean things up fast!
Monolaurin is a potent antiviral that works great on colds, flu, and sinusitis. Take this with acute immune.
Use Throat Mist as soon as you feel that tickle when a sore throat is coming on. This stuff knocks sore throats out, fast!
Chronic immune is for long-term protection, such as during a heavy training cycle right before a race, or if you’re around a bunch of sick people and don’t want to catch it.
Buffered C powder is a high dose Vitamin C. Great for preventing, and getting rid of colds. It’s also a potent antioxidant!
