Podcast Episode Fifteen: How to Resolve Sinus Problems Naturally

Sinus problems are difficult to identify. They can be caused by environmental scenarios, such as dry climates, air pollution, indoor pollution, and excess pollen. They can also be caused by irritants such as cigarettes, perfumes, colognes, and body washes. They can even be caused by structural issues in your body or sinuses, nutritional deficiencies, or a weakened immune system.

Every day, we are exposed to any number of toxicities that can cause our sinuses to flare up. Most people run to the doctor for an antibiotic. The problem is that antibiotics do not help the majority of sinus infections—they only make things worse.

In today’s episode, we’re talking about how you can identify the underlying causes of your sinus issues as well as natural ways to improve them.
