Sinus infection (sinusitis) appears as a result of inflammation which affects the sinus membrane. This in turn results in bacterial growth which leads to congestion and sinus pain.

The nasal discharge is often thick and yellow, and patients experience a variety of symptoms, including:

  • Pain and discomfort
  • Frequent headaches
  • Fever and congestion
  • Runny nose
  • Loss of smell
  • Cough
  • Dental pain
  • Pressure around eyes
  • Post-nasal drip
  • Bad breath
  • Fatigue

Conditions that may also cause sinus blockage include:

  • Allergic rhinitis (swelling of the nose lining)
  • The common cold
  • A deviated septum
  • Nasal polyps

If you suffer from this health issue, apple cider vinegar is the right solution for you! It is a highly potential ingredient loaded with vitamins A, B1, B2, E, magnesium, and calcium. It also contains antioxidants and fiber.

These mighty nutrients clear the nasal cavities and treat allergy symptoms. Apple cider vinegar makes the accumulated mucus thinner, which is crucial for fighting off the sinus infection.

Here is a homemade natural remedy that can help you to deal with this condition:


  • Fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of cayenne pepper
  • ½ cup of water


Boil the water and add the vinegar. Cook over moderate heat and add the honey, the cayenne pepper, and lemon juice. Stir well and consume this beverage on an empty stomach each morning.

Apart from treating sinus infections, it can also improve your overall health.
