Sinus Infection "Fightback" Formula

by Elizabeth

June 2008

I spent half the night in a hotel bathroom in Washington D.C. in agony from a sinus infection. The next day I asked my husband to pick up some fresh garlic, which I took throughout the day. By the following day I was up and about sightseeing with everyone else! Try this remedy:

4 fresh cloves of garlic
1 cayenne pepper capsule

Chew (if you don't mind the taste/odor) or mince 1 garlic clove. Take 4 times daily with water, along with a cayenne pepper capsule once throughout the day on a full stomach.

When our family begins to get the sniffles, I prepare a simple concoction of
the following in a small dish:

½ cup chopped onion
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 inches of ginger, minced

Drizzle ¾ cup of non-pasturized honey over the mix of fresh herbs and cover
with a lid. In a while, you will notice a runny liquid forming on top; this
is an extraction of the ingredients. Use this liquid as a cough syrup
throughout the day. Our colds do not usually last more than 2 days with this
easy and effective concoction!

This combination can also be used in a tea form. Simply brew a cup of mint
or chamomile tea and add some of the above mentioned liquid along with some
freshly squeezed lemon juice. Non-pasturized honey can also be added to
taste. This tea works just like Neocitran without the use of drugs or
chemicals!

Did You Know?

Cayenne powder has been used by researchers in Antarctica to help them bear the extremely cold temperatures. The cayenne powder is sprinkled into their boots before putting them on. As the powder slowly comes in contact with the skin through the socks, it will draw blood to the feet, thus bringing much needed warms to the extremities. The one draw back is the red powder stains light colored socks. From our readings, it seems the stained socks were a small price to pay for the great benefit of being able to feel your toes after a little while out in the blistering cold! After trying this on a number of occasions during the winter near Lake Superior, I'm also convinced the stained socks are worth it.
