Maxillary Sinus Congestion Plus

Answered on December 11, 2014

Hey everyone! So just over a month and a half ago my hubby and I ended up staying in a really damp hotel room and for some reason we never thought to ask for another hotel room. Needless to say I got a full on flu, first one in over a year, with fever with occasional spots of blood in mucus and when blowing my nose. The flur lasted nearly two weeks with lingering weakness and tiredness.

Since then I have been struggling with an immune system that is refusing to work properly and non-stop migraines. All the little medical mysteries that have been bothering me throught the years are acting up all at once in full and everytime I try to take a detox bath I break out in nasty rashes and hives. Mind you I have been Paleo for over 4 year and I am on a strict SCD protocol so my diet is really clean.

Recently because of the headaches and some mild stroke like symptoms I experienced, my doctor sent me for an MRI which showed maxillary congestion which I have no idea how to deal with. I really would appreciate and advice and help you can give me for autoimmune recovery or how to deal with the congestion as I really want to avoid the steroids prescribed to me. Thanks in advance I really appreciate any advice

Sounds like that was a moldy room.

 

What's a detox bath?  Maybe you're reacting to something in it?  Many things that are sold as a "detox" aren't.  The best detox you can do is to actually fast.

 

You could try an olive leaf extract nasal spray, or you could make your own. 

 

You'd need to mix a cup of pure boilling water (distilled would work as would Reverse Osmosis filtered water) with about a teaspoon of salt and a teaspoon of xylitol.  Let it cool.  Drop in some olive leaf extract and optionally a drop or two of oregano oil - be careful with the oregano oil, it can burn, so make sure you use very little of it..  Shake it really well and and put it in a sterile container.  You can then refill a nasal spray bottle with this stuff.

 

You could do the old fashioned thing of breathing in steam.  i.e. boil a small pot of non-chlorinated water, optionally add in some tea for a nice aroma, put it on the table, cover your head with a towel over it and inhale the steam, (being careful to avoid the first head of steam as it can be too hot).  Should take about 20 minutes to do that.

I'm starting to think it was moldy as well hoping it wasnt :(. I will give the nasal spray you suggested a try.

 

A detox bath is a way to gently flush toxins using a variety of products.  I typically rotate between 1 cup of epsom  salts, apple cider vinegar, baking soda and sea salt.
