How Yoga Gave Me The Strength To Come Out

There are times I still wonder if I would have ever come out of the closet had my friend not dragged me to that first yoga class, years ago. In retrospect, I had no idea that "gay" would follow  Read

This winter I had an unusually long cold that eventually turned into a sinus infection. Not wanting to take antibiotics, as I've done in the past with my other infections, I decided to try a new approach that worked wonders for me.
 
Did you know that taking even just one course of antibiotics depletes your gut of healthy bacteria in a way that is difficult to restore fully?
 
Why is this bacteria so important? Seventy percent of our immune system is in our gut, so if you kill this healthy bacteria, you are in essence killing your immune system. Furthermore, we are so used to taking antibiotics, that the bacteria is becoming more and more resistant and are immune systems are being weakened over time.
 
If your intention is to stay healthy on the long run, next time around try this recipe:
 
Steam inhalation with eucalyptus essential oil, three times a day.
  • Pour boiling water into a deep bowl.
  • Add a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil.
  • Cover your head with a towel.
  • Breath the steam in until it wears off.
  • Tip: use this time for meditation to increase the healing benefits!
Follow with a Netipot rinse.

Morning and afternoon rinse:
  • Boiled filtered water that has been cooled down to a comfortable lukewarm temperature
  • 1 teaspoon colloidal silver
  • ¼ teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda 
Night Rinse:
  • Boiled filtered water that has been cooled down to a comfortable lukewarm temperature
  • Contents of a probiotic capsule. This works wonders, all the good bacteria directly into your sinuses to help fight off that nasty infection
  • ¼ teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
*The key to all of this is high quality ingredients!
 
Are your nasal passages totally blocked? That was the case for me, so the first day I needed the help of an over-the-counter decongestant because absolutely no air was passing through my nostrils
 
Take probiotics orally.

Back up your good bacteria with a daily probiotic capsule, and consume fermented foods such as miso, tempeh, sauerkraut or your own fermented vegetables.
 
Avoid evil foods.

Ditch any foods that promote unfriendly bacteria growth, like dairy and sugar (remember, there's also sugar in fruit, bread and pasta)/ Use stevia as a sweetener if you need it.
 
Get additional help from yoga.
  • Every morning do a little bit of restorative yoga, it will immediately help you get rid of the mucus. The idea here is to get all that yucky green stuff out! 
  • Do a few sun salutations. If necessary, skip downward dog if you're so congested that the pose feels uncomfortable).
  • Do guided visualizations or meditation to promote the calming response in the body that allows for natural healing.  
Curing your sinus infection naturally builds up your immune system because you're allowing it to do the work it's supposed to, rather than letting the antibiotics take over. You're just giving it a little extra help and love!
