I suffered for years in my childhood with sinus problems - had them drained, antibiotics, Sudafed, drops, etc. Now I am in my sixties and have been doing more home remedies. After many years I again got sinusitis and found this treatment on an Ayurveda website. It worked INSTANTLY and my nose stayed clear throughout the day. Just chew 4-5 peppercorns and wash it down with water. Amazing! Nothing else needed. Ayurveda has been my choice of naturapathic medicine for 8 years - and I have never been healthier!

Thank you Kathy, it worked fantastically.

My nose was totally stuffed. Air didn't get in.

After chewing the black peppercorns for a few minutes, air was flowing freely.

I was amazed.

Amazing. I only needed 2 peppercorns. And they are also delicious!

Sinus cavities are very hard to treat with anything except direct application and contact ointments, washes, etc. Taking antibiotics is not the answer unless you apply antibiotic ointment directly to the cavity. Alternate fingers so you do not reinfect. We struggled most of my son's early years with infections, that lead to inner ear issues as the infections backed up and spread from his nose. He was prescribed dose after dose of oral antibiotics, nothing worked until an EENT physician told us how to apply directly to the nasal cavity. Only then did this end.
