Cayenne – Sinuses

Sinus infections and inflammation can be a recurring nightmare. Those of us who suffer from sinus infections seem to have one on top of another. As soon as a sinus infection is on its way out, another is on its way in. Treatments seem to be extreme – antibiotics, neti pot, sinus spray that causes stress to the cells and tissues and a possible choking hazard. All just to repeat the process again a few weeks later.

What if we could simply gargle instead with warm water mixed with a small amount (1/8 or 1/4 teaspoon) of cayenne pepper powder? Wouldn’t that be a nice change and relief?

Cayenne pepper works wonders on the sinus cavities. The capsaicin in cayenne pepper specifically targets the epithelial cells that line the sinus cavities, to strengthen and nourish every cell. With healthy and strong cells lining the sinus cavi ties, bacteria won’t linger. Cayenne pepper also clears out the congestion caused by sinus infections, so you can breathe freely. Cayenne pepper’s anti-inflammatory properties reduce swelling of the sinuses. And cayenne pepper, even though it’s hot, calms and soothes your sinus tissues, for more comfort and relief than you’ve experienced in a long time.

While I don’t recommend inhaling cayenne pepper through your nose, if you’ve taken a moment to smell cayenne pepper, you know this little spice smells amazing. As you breathe in the scent of cayenne pepper, your body and mind both know you’re taking in something that can restore good health and free breathing. Notice the way your sinuses respond. They know that help is on the way.
