Regarding Ginger Root- I have found it to be excellent in opening sinuses. I drink a cup in the morning and evening. Cut thumb size piece of fresh ginger root into slices, in small tea cup, add water, microwave until just boiling. Let sit for a while; the longer the stronger the tea. Add small tsp. honey. Delicious, peppery. Lowers blood pressure also.

Have read that too much can thin the blood so be careful is on prescription blood thinners. Also have read warnings regarding gallbladder problems, if you suffer this already.

Ginger for a Sinus Headache: I don't have fresh ginger root, I have ginger in a tube. I figured, I'll try it with the ginger that I have. I put in about 1 very large tablespoon or more of ginger into a 6 or 8 oz glass, then boiled up 1 cup of water. I added some organic honey. I wasn't expecting this to work, but it worked almost immediately!

I would say it's not quite what you would get from Ibuprofen, or sudafed, but very very close, and it will take the pain away, and it's natural! I am sick of taking ibuprofen for my sinus headaches. They WORK, but, if this method works for me I would rather go this route. I have had sinus headaches for years. The pain is unbearable. It's been 20 mins since I tried it. I will keep this window open and continue to monitor if it's working or not. Ok it has been an hour. I definitely DO feel better. I would say it's worth it to do.

I suffered from horrible sinus headaches over the past three months. After much researching, I finally found the culprit--ICE CREAM. I have craved Ice cream every day for the past 3 1/2 months. I always use Oragnic ACV so I knew that was not helping. I tried grapefruit seed extract in water and was very pleased with the results. No more sinus headaches since I've been on it. I used about 5 drops in an 8oz glass of water.

Thanks for the advice. I usually get a horrible sinus headache the day after I eat dairy and I am definitely going to try the Grape fruit seed oil next time.


Neti Pot

I have sinus infections and use a Neti Pot often. This morning I work up with a serious sinus headache. The pain was concentrated in the corner of my right eye, so I know it was a sinus headache. I mixed a Goodys headache powder with my normal saline rinse... And The headache was almost instantly GONE! No burning or any discomfort. Obviously this is an extreme measure to take, but it worked!

I was suffering from a terrible sinus headache. I tried the tomato tea remedy, but to no avail. Then I gave the steamed ACV/water mixture a shot. It has worked wonders. What a relief! I simply inhaled the fumes lightly after bringing one part ACV and one part water to a boil. I did this once last night, and it brought much relief. After waking this morning, I still had a bit of a headache so I did it once more. Now the sinus headache is practically gone. I highly recommend this remedy, especially for people whose stomachs cannot tolerate in taking some of the other remedies.

I've had a sinus headache for months and have been at wit's end. I wasn't even sure it was a sinus headache because I felt it in my forehead more than my nose. I didn't expect anything from Jeannie's Spicy Tomato Tea recipe, but I followed her instructions regarding ingredients, measurements and sipping (slowly, holding it in, inhaling while the tea is in the back of the throat) and the next day I noticed less sinus pressure. I couldn't believe the instant relief. Over the last few days I've drank the tea in the morning, night or both and it's had amazing results. I have only a tiny bit of pressure left. When drinking the tea, my nose only runs slightly, if at all, and my eyes sometimes water a tiny bit, so I don't know where the sinus congestion is going, but I know it's leaving my head and upper nose. My head feels almost totally clear again. I cannot thank Jeannie enough for the relief from tremendous and previously uncurable pain. This recipe has worked wonders for me, and I'm a major skeptic. Note: I read that many sinus headaches are caused by repressed grief or anger. I know this is true in my case, so I'd advise others to consider that as well. Regardless, the tea heals.

After suffering with a sinus headache for 3 days and getting no sleep, my wife brewed this tea for me. I thought it was ridiculous but she stood there until I drank it. When she came in to check on me 15 minutes later, I had fallen asleep and stayed asleep for 5 hours! When I woke up, the headache was much better. I continued with the tea for the next 2 days because frankly, it tastes great.


Vitamin C

I find that a megadose of vitamin C (2000 mg) will take care of a sinus headache. Repeat when it starts bothering you again.
