Alternative Medicine

 
Combine 3 treatmet modalities: Anti-fungals, Enzymes & Probiotics -
http://www.candidasupport.org/resources/comparing-candida-products/
Antifungals: "caprylic acid, oregano oil, grapefruit seed extract, Pau D’Arco, olive leaf, coconut oil, garlic, black walnut, etc. These antifungals will create a spiral of 'die-off' which makes it seem like they are working - in fact, they are starting to work.
But the problem with antifungals is they can’t complete the job. The Candida organism eventually builds an immunity to antifungal ingredients.  (This happens in much the same way insects becomes immune to insecticides.) more ...
(One may need to rotate products/ingredients.)
Enzymes work on the cell wall of Candida and can attack it most anywhere in the body...but the enzymes could not finish the job. One reason is that they cannot kill the brand new yeast cells that are being made every day in your gut...
Candida always begins in the gut where it grows and multiplies. 
Over time the fungal Candida cells permeate the lining of the gut and become systemic (throughout the whole body).  Once this happens yeast can clog your organs, create fungal sinus infections, brain fog, and terrible rashes...
Probiotic (acidophilus) Products...
Bacteria must have some sort of guaranteed delivery system that gets them through the stomach without being digested and into the colon where they are needed. Always check the labels, most do not have any delivery system at all."

“You need plenty of good bacteria (probiotics). The way it works is the “friendly” bacteria (probiotics) basically run the bad guys out of town then take up residence themselves…
Certain probiotics (lactobacillus) produce hydrogen peroxide as a natural by-product. Hydrogen peroxide is a powerful bacterial killer and excellent remedy for sinus infections…
2ndly…start (consistently buying/consuming or) making and fermenting your own probiotic rich foods such as kefir, miso, tempeh and sauerkraut…
Apple cider vinegar is another outstanding home remedy for sinus infection… Make sure you only ever purchase the raw, unfiltered ACV that still contains the “mother” apple. This is extremely important as all other apple cider vinegars are processed rubbish and will not benefit you at all. Mix up 2 teaspoons of ACV with 1 teaspoon of Manuka honey in around 8 ounces of warm, filtered water. Drink this…3 times daily 10-20 minutes before food…
Olive leaf extract is (also a)…powerful viral, bacterial and pathogen…
Colloidal silver works in a similar way to olive leaf extract by binding to the protein structure surrounding the virus or bacterial infection, which then prevents it from feeding and replicating further… Take 1 teaspoon of high strength colloidal silver mixed in a glass of filtered water 5-7 times a day for 3 weeks…
Eat plenty of (organic:) eggs (vitamin A and zinc), pumpkin seeds (zinc), chilli peppers and kale (vitamin C), cold water fatty (wild) fish (EFA’s) and get lots of sunshine (vitamin D).”
Also recommended are a routine inclusion in diet of (organic) herbs and spices: cayenne pepper (red chilli), cinnamon, ginger, horseradish, Turmeric (curcumin), garlic, onions, and oregano.
Avoid “refined sugars and yeast containing foods (breads, alcohol, etc) as these feed the bad bacteria in your body. Also avoid mucous-forming foods including all dairy (milk, cheese, ice-cream and yoghurt), flour products, fried foods and chocolate (especially GM, non-organic, or conventional fast foods)."

Sinus problems and post-nasal drip can actually be a tip-off that you're being affected by mold or fungi. In fact, research done by the Mayo Clinic in the 1990s strongly suggests that NEARLY ALL chronic sinusitis is
caused by fungi, but blamed on bacteria - then mistreated using antibiotics.
The
findings were published in 1999 in two peer-reviewed journals, Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology and Mayo Clinic Proceedings.(1) Yet most physicians are still unaware of this study, or at least of its significance. A 1999 Mayo Clinic press release(2) stated:"Mayo Clinic researchers say they have found the cause of most chronic sinus infections - an immune response to fungus."The Mayo Clinic study suggests that 96% of the people who suffer from chronic sinusitis are "fungal sensitized," meaning they have immune responses triggered by inhaled fungal organisms!
This explains why antibiotics are so ineffective for chronic sinusitis, as they target bacteria, NOT fungi. Antibiotics and steroids can actually worsen fungal-related infections by destroying your body's natural biological terrain, creating an internal incubation ground for further fungal growth…
The book
, Mold: The War Within is…a useful resource…
4. Consume organic coconut oil.
Coconut oil is rich in lauric acid, which is known for being antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal.
6. Elevate your head when sleeping….
Get vitamin D is from safe exposure of (outdoor) sun on sufficient amounts of exposed skin (on a regular basis).
[PS: consider using an ionizer when away from home, such as on vacation or at work.
Likewise consider using an air purifier that uses ultraviolet light.]
 
serrapeptase https://articles.mercola.com/vitamins-supplements/serrapeptase.aspx
"Chronic empyema is a disease affecting the maxillary sinus inside the skull, causing pain, nasal discharge and obstruction.4 88 patients were given 10 milligrams 3 times on the day before operation, once on the night and three times again daily for 5 days after, while the remaining 86 received a placebo. Researchers took note of changes in buccal (cheek) swelling and found that the group who took serrapeptase had significantly less swelling compared to those who took the placebo5 ...
Serrapeptase
(also known as serratiopeptidase) is a substance produced in the gut
of newborn Bombyx mori silkworms, allowing them to dissolve and escape from their cocoons. According to published research, serrapeptase is classified as a proteolytic enzyme, which means that it can break down proteins into their basic building blocks, which are amino acids.1
 

Spiritual
Some Root Causes of Self & Ancestors
Where Repentance and Refusal is Needed

 
24/7 dripping nose scripture: Proverbs 19:13 Stearns CJB  
A nagging wife is like a leak that keeps dripping.
Morris, Robert - 4/6/2011 - Jezebel - http://www.daystar.com/shows/all-ministries/434-robert-morris-the-blessed-life - A sinus attack/problem can result from/mirror what is happening in the spiritual sinus, namely that of being infected from one's toleration of a Jezebel spirit.  Upon enlightenment, one needs to repent to God of this as sin and subsequently to deal with the issue.

Fungi not bacteria - http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/1999/09/990910080344.htm -
"Antibiotics and over-the-counter decongestants are widely used to treat chronic sinusitis. In most cases, antibiotics are not effective for chronic sinusitis because they target bacteria, not fungi...Thousands of kinds of single-cell fungi (molds and yeasts) are found everywhere in the world. Fungal spores (the reproductive part of the organism) become airborne like pollen. Some people develop allergies to fungi...Mayo Clinic researchers say they have found the cause of most chronic sinus infections - an immune system response to fungus." 9/10/1999

Fungi "are plant-like organisms that lack chlorophyll. Since they do not have chlorophyll, fungi must absorb food from dead organic matter. Fungi share with bacteria the important ability to break down complex organic substances of almost every type (cellulose) and are essential to the recycling of carbon and other elements in the cycle of life. Fungi are supposed to "eat" only dead things, but sometimes they start eating when the organism is still alive. This is the cause of fungal infections; the treatment selected has to eradicate the fungus to be effective...the presence of fungus results in a disease process in which the body's immune system sends eosinophils (white blood cells distinguished by their lobulated nuclei and the presence of large granules that attract the reddish-orange eosin stain) to attack fungi, and the eosinophils irritate the membranes in the nose. As long as fungi remain, so will the irritation."  Credits to Mayo Clinic http://www.entnet.org/content/fungal-sinusitis

Causes of Diseases and Disorders in the Sinus and Nose:
Acute sinusitis - usually caused by a bacterial infection in the sinuses that results from an upper respiratory tract infection
Chronic sinusitis - long-term swelling and inflammation of the sinuses that may be caused by bacteria or a fungus
Rhinitis – caused by breathing in an allergen such as pollen or dust that triggers an allergic reaction. The body releases histamines to fight the allergens which, in turn, cause symptoms such as itching, swelling, and excessive mucus.

Electrostatic Precipitator

Passive

Can trap very small  particles (0.01 microns) using charged plates. Are challenged to move enough air for effective indoor coverage and pollutant absorption.
HEPA

Passive

Works effectively to filter particles (0.03 microns or larger) such as pet allergens, dust, and larger smoke particles. Not effective at removing odors, gases, and chemicals due to their small particle size. Limited on coverage area.
UV Ultraviolet

Passive

Uses relatively inexpensive UV light to neutralize microorganisms like mildew, bacteria, and viruses. Does not do a real sufficient job filtering particles from the air by itself and UV light degrades over time.
Activated Carbon

Passive

Able to use a very large surface area to attract and neutralize odors and pollutants. Rarely used by itself and when the filter gets full, it stops absorbing and needs to be replaced.
Ozone generation

Active

Uses proven element found in nature that effectively cleans outside air. Need to be able to control generation level to keep output within EPA guidelines.
Ionization

Active

Does remove particles using negatively charged or both negatively and positively charged ions. Particles tend to fall out of the air and stick to walls and other items in a room. Particles are not always taken cleanly out of the air.
