If you’re suffering from a bout of allergic sinusitis, clearing your sinuses is a must. The pressure and the blockages in your sinuses are what are giving you headaches and sinus pain.

There are lots of medicated products to help you with sinus pressure, but a quick, simple and medicine free way to clear your sinuses is to use the natural power of chilies. The natural capsaicin in chilies is an amazing, natural decongestant.

Try eating a super-hot curry, a hot beef chili or something similar and see what this releases from your sinuses. On particularly bad sinus days I’ve turned to a classic British Vindaloo (hot curry) and been feeling like a changed man afterwards.
