    The best foods to fight sinus congestion!!

    Sinus infections can be terribly disruptive, causing breathing difficulty, headaches, stuffiness and loss of taste. While they can be treated with medication, sometimes a careful diet is all it takes to help relieve the congestion. Here are a list of foods to eat, and a list of foods to definitely avoid during times of sinusitis.




    Spicy food like pepper, chillies, jalapenos relieve sinus congestion as they help release the mucus that causes a stuffed nose. Although, people with acid reflux should stay clear of this one.




    Garlic contains an enzyme called allicin that destroys the bacteria and viruses that cause sinusitis.
