Cold and Sinus Blaster has an immediate, dramatic and direct impact on the sinus. It is an extremely pungent formula with aromatic compounds that produce vapors that open and dilate the sinus passageways in order to help drain them, deepen breathing and help to kill microbial inundation. The initial effect is like that of Wasabi that is eaten in Japanese food. It produces a short-term intensity that is followed by a mellow warming sensation in the sinus which is comforting. Cold and Sinus Blaster will open even the most stubborn and clogged sinus cavity for anywhere from a short period of time to a prolonged time. Repeated doses over part of a day can help maintain breathing and sinus drainage and therefore shorten the time to healing. It can be used many times per day when acute or simply on occasion when temporarily in need.
Cold and Sinus Blaster is useful for sinus infections, colds and flues, congestion from allergies and environmental sources. Smokers will find that it helps decongest. Overall, it is primarily an herbal formula to open breathing. It is best to take deep inhalations after taking Cold and Sinus Blaster to direct the vapors into the sinus. The deeper one inhales, the deeper it will work. Peppermint Oil and Fresh Organic Horseradish pulls the action up and into the sinus while the pungency of Cayenne, Garlic Onion and Horseradish increase circulation. Since the sinus cavity has poor circulation in general, this increase pulls immune compounds in the blood to fight infection. The additional Immuno-Stimulating action of Echinacea, Spilanthes, Goldenseal, Elderberry, Garlic, Olive and Fresh Osha help stimulate the body to fight off microbial inundation and assist in healing. Decongesting herbs like Horehound, Licorice, Wild
Cherry and Osha also help clean the lungs. Cold and Sinus Blaster helps to thin, thick and infected mucus and expectorate it out. In this way, it can help resolve an unproductive cough. Fever managing herbs like Boneset, Yarrow, Osha, Andrographis and Peppermint also help reestablish immune homeostasis.
Simply used to help breathing, Cold and Sinus Blaster can be helpful before an athletic event. It can assist high altitude sickness. It can help the congestion that occurs from travel, especially airline flights.
Sinus headaches may also be assisted by draining congestion that creates the pressure of such headaches. Other headaches may also be helped.
Before bedtime, it may help those who snore from inflammation and congestion and therefore produce a better nights sleep.
It is synergistic with other immune formulas to increase immune stimulation. Combine with Echinacea Goldenseal or Oregano Oil to additionally stimulate white blood cell activity. For lung congestion or sore throats, combine with Respir-Ease/Respiratory Complex. For long-term immune weakness, combine with Immuno Tonic/Immuno-Stimulant or Elderberry.
