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.
