As we discussed, inhalation with essential oils and a potent sea salt mixture should be helpful in reducing the infection.
To prepare the inhalation:
- Get a pot and boil about 10 cups of filtered water – don’t use chlorinated water as it damages mucous membranes.
- Add ½ cup of sea salt
Remember that steam is hotter than boiling water so take caution when inhaling the essential oil mixture. Cover your head with a towel and breathe in deeply and slowly. Do this daily.
The essential oils I recommend to add to the sea salt and water mixture are a two drops each of:
- Clove essential oil
- Eucalyptus essential oil
- Tea Tree essential oil
- Oregano essential oil
- Rosemary essential oil
While you are taking antibiotics, you will need to take Saccharomyces boulardii in the AM and PM. Consider taking 1 capsule each AM and PM with food.
Once you are finished with the antibiotics, consider taking ProBiota 12 Powder. Take a half teaspoon at dinner time. This is the best time to take probiotics according to research.
ProBiota 12 Powder contains 12 strains of beneficial bacterial strains in very high doses, which is important to reestablish proper gut flora.
Call an EENT doctor to get a culture and sensitivity done on your sinus. It is not effective medicine to be guessing which substance will kill whatever bacteria or fungus you have in your sinus.
Once you find out what the culture and sensitivity is, get back to me and I will put a call into Key Pharmacy. This way you can call in a prescription for whatever mixture they recommend for a nasal spray. They can compound antibiotics, antifungals and nutrients into a nasal spray which directly targets the infection.
Should you have any questions, please do ask.
Do let me know how the inhalations go as well.
