Natural Remedies for Sinus Bad Breath By Joey Papa, eHow ContributorFound This Helpful
Bad breath can be the result of many factors but for those who suffer from sinus issues, postnasal drip can lead to constant bad breath. When the sinus cavity drains into the back of the throat, it can cause mucus build up and eventually grow unwanted bacteria. The bacteria slowly develop causing bad breath. Using mints and gum will only cover up the bad breath. If you want to rid bad breath from your body, you have to target the source. Many natural remedies exist to treat and prevent bad breath from sinus drainage.
Use a Neti Pot
You can use a neti pot to properly drain, hydrate and rinse the sinus cavity. Purchase a neti pot from a pharmacy and use it two to three times a day to put a stop to postnasal drip. Mix 1 cup of warm water with a 1/2 tsp. of sea salt and stir until all the salt is properly dissolved. Pour the mixture into the neti pot. Place the pot on a nostril over a sink. Tilt the head so the contents of the neti pot empties into the nostril. Allow the saline mix to go completely throughout the entire cavity and empty out of the other nostril. Blow the nose gently and repeat the process on the other side.
Avoid Mucus Forming Food
According to badbreathsinus.com, dairy products are among of the worst foods and beverages to consume when you're fighting bad breath caused by sinus drainage. Dairy products will encourage mucus production throughout the body. Stay away from highly processed sugars such as high fructose corn syrup, and foods high in sugar. Sugar can irritate the sinus cavity and cause the body to produce more mucus. Some grains such as wheat and soy are also smart to avoid because they cause mucus production.
Gargling is one of the most effective ways to kill the bacteria growth in the back of the throat, according to health911.com. Use grapefruit seed extract, mixed with warm water and sea salt to kill bacteria and infection while soothing any irritation in the back of the throat. Mix 1 cup of warm water with a 1/2 tsp. of sea sat and five drops of grapefruit seed extract. Stir well so that all the ingredients are dissolved. Sip in half of the liquid and gargle for 1 minute. Spit out the solution at the end of the minute. Wait five minutes and then repeat again.
