Non-medicated sinus cures

Non-medicated sinus cures

A number of companies develop non-medicated sinus cures to treat simple to complex sinus disorders. Some of these are discussed below:

LAVI Dead Sea Sinus Solutions

The non-medicated LAVI consists of a nasal moisturizer, nasal decongestant, and sinus wash. TriCord Pharmaceuticals LLC claims that its LAVI Dead Sea salt formula is rich in potassium chloride and magnesium chloride. The clinically tested formula contains negligible amount of sodium chloride. The formula is better than other available saline solutions used to treat sinus infections and chronic sinusitis. LAVI offers all benefits of topical nasal steroids, but it does not have side effects.  The non-addictive formula is safe for elderly, nursing mothers, pregnant women, and children.

Dr. Neuzil’s Irrigator, Herbal Enhanced Nasal Cleansing Spray

The spray contains natural essential oils with moisturizing and antiseptic properties. The non-medicated formula resolves discomfort of paranasal sinuses. According to the product website, the easy-to-use spray has no side effects.

FESS Eucalyptus Nasal Spray from Care Pharmaceuticals Pty Ltd.

The spray cleans and moistens the nasal passages. The saline solution thins and drains unwanted mucus from the sinuses. The product resolves sinus congestion ascribed to allergies. The eucalyptus aroma generates a refreshing feeling.

Nasal & Sinus Hypertonic Deep Cleansing Saline Spray

AURENA Laboratories AB’s spray relieves both nose and sinus congestion attributed to allergies, rhinitis, sinusitis, and cold. The spray contains a mild hypertonic saline solution that drains allergens, pollutants, and mucus. The hypertonic solution is more “saltier” than the standard saline solutions. Extra “salt” helps reducing sinus pressure and postnasal drip.

Antiseptic SINO Fresh Nasal & Sinus Care Spray

The homeopathic spray is non-addictive. The over-the-counter spray gives relief from sinusitis symptoms without causing any side effects. The mild antiseptic spray cleans, traps, and washes out the pollutants such as smoke, pollen, dust, bacteria, molds, and yeasts. The patented formula contains sodium chloride, purified water, mint oils, and antiseptic ingredients. All the constituents have Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status.

Sinuclear™ Nasal & Sinus Congestion Relief

The hypertonic formula of Sinuclear cleans, opens blocked sinus and nasal passages and soothes the tissues. The formula consists of sterile seawater, mineral salts, and minerals that wash out extra fluid from the inflamed sinuses and repair the tissues. The natural relief does not contain any preservatives. The non-addictive product has no side effects.
All the above sinus cures are natural and non-medicated. However, you should consult the doctor before administering the products.
