A new solution has been found, and the results show that it could be the best we had so far.
People suffering from a sinus infection know how unpleasant and painful it could be. They are always with prescribed antibiotics in their pocket.
They need to keep it under control. However, these antibiotics could worsen the issue. Once the sinus infection disappears, it comes back stronger and more immune on the antibiotics.
That’s why the old prescribed meds stop working after a while.
On top of that, the antibiotics destroy the good bacteria, as well. It doesn’t have the ability to make a difference between good and bad bacteria.
That’s what made Dr. Mas Takashima, director of the Sinus Center at Baylor College of Medicine, to find a new solution for the sinus infection.
His treatment is different than others and includes probiotic nasal rinses and baby shampoo sinus irrigations.
These new therapies are targeting the bacteria in ways that haven’t been utilized in the past. These techniques are helping those with chronic and acute sinusitis. Whenever I tell my patients about the new therapeutic protocols they’re very surprised, but they get the results they want and need.
We tell our children to wash their hands with soap, not with plain water, to clean bacteria from their hands. The same concept is being used in the sinuses.
If you want to get the best results of this treatment you need to use the following recipe:
- Combine ½ teaspoon of baby shampoo and 8 ounces of saline
- To prepare the saline, you need to mix a rounded teaspoon of baking soda and three heaping teaspoons of salt in a zip-lock bag.
- In a cup with distilled water (8 ounces), add a teaspoon of the mixture and ½ teaspoon of baby shampoo
- Soak an infant nasal bulb in this solution and flush the nostrils. Do it carefully
Takashima believes that the baby shampoo irrigation will cleanse your nasal cavity with a surfactant as it breaks down the oily layers that prevent the elimination of harmful bacteria.
The baby shampoo deals with this barrier without a problem.
Before you try this natural homemade irrigation, consult with your doctor. He might recommend the proper treatment for this case.
Takashima has a list of recommended baby shampoos that you need for this remedy:
- Aveeno Baby Wash & Shampoo with Natural Oat Extract
- California Baby Super Sensitive Shampoo & Body Wash (Fragrance-Free)
- Exederm Non-Irritating Baby Shampoo
- California Baby Shampoo & Body Wash – Tea Tree & Lavender
- Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Fragrance-Free Shampoo & Wash
Trying Takashima’s approach will hopefully relieve the sinus infection symptoms.
