There's nothing worse than a sinus infection - a runny nose, sore throat, throbbing head, body pain and fever altogether can be painful, annoying and downright draining!
Believe it or not, sinus infections infect a whopping 29.4 million people per year. But here's the good news: You can avoid these infections and being put out of commission by familiarising yourself with the most common culprits...
Five main factors causing your sinus infections
#1: Your immune system is out of balance
Factors such as toxins, bacteria, viruses and toxic biofilm can trigger inflammation in your immune system
and throw it off balance. When your immune system is out of balance, it’s more susceptible to infection.
#2: You’re exposed to lots of environmental toxins
Breathing in environmental toxins like biotoxins such as mould and fungus as well as cigarette smoke are linked to internal infections and chronic rhinosinusitis – an inflammatory condition of the paranasal sinuses.
Medical Maverick reveals the real problem with your daily multivitamin...
For the last several years, there’s been overwhelming evidence showing multivitamins don’t do much for your health.
Well as Dr Douglass explained, it’s not because multivitamins don’t work. It’s because most manufacturers make one (and in many cases both) of these vital mistakes.
1. Choose inferior ingredients to keep manufacturing costs down and profits up. This means no matter how MUCH of the ingredient they put in their multi, the quality is so poor you may as well eat sawdust.
2. Don’t put enough of each ingredient into their formulation. So even if they do use high-quality ingredients, the amount you get is so low, you may as well not have bothered.
And that means, unless you take a high quality multivitamin, taking one will do almost nothing for you!

#3: Your gut bacteria are out of whack
Your gut houses approximately 80% of your immune system. Trillions of bacteria make up your microbiome to help regulate your immune system and overall health in several ways. Your sinuses and mouth are just two extensions of your gut. When the balance of good and bad bacteria in your gut is less than optimal, it can cause a lack of healthy bacteria in its extensions.
#4: Your microbiome’s biofilm is unhealthy
Another aspect of your gut that you want to keep healthy is your microbiome’s biofilm – a thin, slimy layer of bacteria that adheres to your intestines and sinuses. You can promote a healthy biofilm by making healthy lifestyle choices – for example, eating healthy foods, exercising regularly and choosing natural medicines.
#5: You have a viral infection
Another problem that an unhealthy gut can lead to is viral infections. And you’ll be surprised to know that up to 98% of all sinus infections are actually due to viral infections rather than bacterial ones. This essentially means that taking antibiotics to help your body fight back will only weaken your microbiome even further. The simplest way to tell the different between a viral and bacterial sinus infection? The bacterial type usually lasts longer than 10 days.
If you already have a sinus infection, try taking bromelain or a facial steam to ease the symptoms. It also helps to use a humidifier and allergy-proof your home!
