How to Treat a Sinus Infection

Hi, my name is Troy Giles. I'm a of Chiropractic and a Natural Internist. Today I wanted to talk to you about sinus infections.Sinus infections are, it's different then when you just get snot in your nose, froma regular cold. Infections usually happen when, your sinuses, which aren't the nasalcavity. Okay, let me show you this. The nasal cavity is here. It goes up in the nose andit comes, in quite a large area here, it comes down the back of the throat. This is the nasalcavity. Your sinuses are above that. The sinuses are up in here and there's also sinuses inhere. So when you get a sinus infection, that's different than having snot in your nose, inyour nasal cavity. So what happens is oft

times, when you get a cold, you'll be blowingyour nose so hard, that you push pressure and it comes back up in to the sinuses here.So the way you can tell that there's an infection, one way is severe pain, but that also canbe just that is impacted with, you know, with mucus. The coloring of it, usually if it'sreally dark brown, that's another indicator, the smell, you can oft times smell it. Butit's kind of difficult unless you actually take it and get it, take a sample and growit out to know what's there. I don't really care what's there. What I care about is beingable to draw the mucus out of the sinus cavity and out of the sinuses. The best way I'vefound to treat this, with impaction, or with

infection, is using Nasopure. Nasopure isa nasal wash the you use. You probably have heard of a Netty Pot. Netty Pots you haveto stick the thing in your nose. There's a little pot. You tip your head kind of upsidedown and it runs in your nose and all this stuff. You don't have to do that with Nasopure.Nasopure, you just stick it in one nostril, hold your breath. As you hold your breathit raises up the nasal pharynx. You now compress. You push water and what it does it comes inone side of the nasal cavity and out the other nasal cavity, and you're going to move outmucus, water, whatever. Also as you do this, it going to, as it goes around the back ofthe nasal cavity, it's going to cause a Bernoulli's

Principle, it's called. Bernoulli's is theidea of literally flight. As your flying an airplane, there is a swirl that happens onthe back leading, or the back edge of the wing that causes it to raise up, that causesa suction. So literally your sucked up in the sky by this principle. It creates a lowpressure here. Same idea, as you're shooting water through the back, it comes around theother side. As it makes that turn, it makes it turn a little vortex, a vortices or spinand it will cause a suction that will remove mucus out of the sinuses, top and bottom.So that's very, very effective. Nasopure is a great way. Plus usually an infection isgoing to be bacterial or viral. So as I discussed

how to treat the common cold on another tutorial,BactoEX and ViroEX are very, very effective. We can also get you a tincture. This is BactoEX.It's a capsule. This is just a little scanning tray I use. This is bacteria. This is virus.If you, you can actually take this liquid and put it in to a nasal sprayer as well asactually spray a mist into your nose that's a natural antibiotic. Now, again, if it'sa sinus infection, unless it's massive, then go get an antibiotic, but there's so manyother ways to treat it besides antibiotics, so that you don't have to drain your gut,or drop your immune system. So just basically BactoEX and ViroEX are very, very effective.Flushing it with the Nasopure. Again, the

Nasopure has saline. It comes with littlepackets. It doesn't show the packets here, but it comes with small packets of salineand of bicarbonate or baking soda. So it's salinebicarbonate mixture will help you flushand draw the toxins and stuff out of the mucus. So that's very effective. Don't any citrus,well let's see. I specifically orange juice. Vitamin C is appropriate, but a lot of peoplewill create mucus with orange juice. Don't drink milk while your sick. I don't suggestdrinking milk at any time, but specifically if you have a sinus infection, because itjust creates a great covering and a great area for bacteria to grow. We call it an Agarin chemistry when we're checking, or in biochemistry
