I suffer from severe sinus congestion. Only prednisone seems to help as the nasal sprays and nasal steroids make it worse. Even after having polyps removed it persists. I have been told it may be caused by an autoimmune disease. If this turns out to be true I know that there is no cure short of taking medicines that may have negative side effects. Is there any natural way that I can treat this?

This will open up the nasal cavity which will enable the mucuos congestion to flow out easily. Do this in the morning and evening before bedtime. I was a sinus candidate until an experienced ENT doctor recommeded this treatment. Guest
