Clear Sinuses in Huntersville NC

Everyone knows that stuffy nose and swollen sinus feeling. No matter if it’s spring and the pollen is driving your sinuses crazy, or if it’s cold season and you can’t get rid of your sniffles, taking pharmaceuticals all the time might not be your preferred method. If you are interested in learning about natural ways to clear sinuses, keep reading.

Saltwater Washes

Usually most people tend to avoid getting saltwater in their nose on a day-to-day basis, however, when fighting off sinus pressure and stuffiness, a saltwater wash (aka saline rinse) can be a simple and quick remedy to break up your blockage. Check out this link for more information about saline rinses and a recipe on how to make your own at home using just three ingredients.


The name might sound like a prescription drug, but Bromelain is a natural enzyme derived from pineapple. While Bromelain has many, many healing uses, one of the most common is for nasal swelling. You can find Bromelain in the juice and stem of pineapple, and also in supplement form at most grocery stores or supermarkets.


If there doesn’t seem to be a cause for your sinus problems, it might be dry air. Dry air keeps all that yucky but oh so helpful mucus from flowing properly, which causes congestion and sinus pain. A remedy to this is using a humidifier in your home. Keeping the air moisturized will keep your nose functioning properly and save you a lot of pain. This is especially helpful in the winter when humidity levels tend to be naturally low.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) can be used to treat your sinus woes in a variety of ways. Take a tablespoon of straight ACV three times a day to fight off a sinus infection and prevent getting another one. If apple cider vinegar isn’t your favorite flavor, try mixing 2 tablespoons of ACV, one tablespoon of honey, and 8 ounces of warm water for a sweeter drink.

Acupuncture and Chiropractic Adjustments

Clinical studies show that acupuncture is over 90% effective in relieving sinus irritation and complications associated with post-nasal drip. If needles aren’t your cup of tea, try a chiropractic adjustment. A chiropractor can target specific bones, joints, and areas in your body that will relieve your symptoms and leave you feeling better overall.
