1-Cup-A-Day Recipes To Eliminate Sinus Infections & Congestion

1 cup a day recipes

Just one cup a day of any of the following remedies can eliminate congestion, sinus problems, ear pressure, and chronic sinus infections.

There are a lot of people suffering that don’t need to be. Here are 6 different remedies that you can take 1 cup of to reduce infections and congestion.

Vitamin C

Getting a high dose of vitamin C from food is hard to do. That’s why I made a high dose powder form, which contains 2,600 mg of vitamin C. 

However, there are other ways to get vitamin C than just taking it as a powder mixed into a drink. We put 2,000-4,000 milligrams of vitamin C mixed with one cup of water, and then took that in combination with a nebulizer. 

A nebulizer takes the liquid in it, heats it up, and turns it into steam that you can inhale. That way, you’re utilizing the power of steam to loosen up sinuses, congestion, and sore throats.

For a smaller child, one cup might be too much, so you can also use a smaller amount for them to nebulize.

Using that steam with vitamin C will significantly benefit your immune system.

Mint & Nettles

I like to use nettles because they have good antimicrobial and anti-allergen properties. 

You can take nettle leaves, boil them, and then add in peppermint oil or mint. Mint is very good for clearing congestion, and peppermint oil can be rubbed right onto the chest or under the nose.

You can also add honey, which has antihistamine properties that help with congestion or a sore throat.

You can then breathe the steam in as it boils on the stove, drink the liquid in a tea form. 

If you don’t want to boil nettle leaves, you can also get nettles in a supplement form, which you can find here.

Silver Serum

Silver serum is silver that is imprinted onto the structure of water. Take 1/10 – 1/2 ounce of silver serum (I recommend you only use 1/10 if you’re giving this to a child) and mix it with a cup of water. 

You can either drink this, or nebulize it like with vitamin C.

You can also spray it up into your nose like a saline solution. 

Chamomile Tea

Chamomile tea is very relaxing, but also helps loosen congestion inside of the system. You can nebulize it, drink it, or boil it on the stove and breathe it in. 

Another way to get in chamomile is by taking a supplement form, which you can find here, to improve your sleep and get rid of any congestion.


I love using ginger, especially if you have a sore throat or congestion. You can boil ginger tea into water, and you can even throw some garlic cloves in with it for some extra antimicrobial and antiviral effects. 

You can also heat water and drop half of a shaved ginger root in. A teaspoon of ginger powder works as well, and you can add honey for flavor and drink it as a tea.

Vitamin P (Quercetin)

Quercetin is an antihistamine powerhouse. It’s very effective against allergy-related congestion.

1-500 milligrams of vitamin P can be mixed with 500-2,500 milligrams of vitamin C. These two work together to stop viral replication. 

These two as powders can be mixed in one cup of warm liquid, or you can just take them in supplement form. If you want the powdered form of quercetin, you can find it here.

In fact, I made an allergy formula that combines quercetin with nettles, vitamin C, and other very good allergy-related antihistamines.


These 6 one-cup recipes will help you get rid of sinus infections through liquids, or through steam via a nebulizer or heating them on a stove.

That will help you stay away from toxic medications, antibiotics, and other harmful things that often come with sinus infections and congestion.

One thing you should be addressing in addition to using these remedies are the sugars, dairy, and other bad nutrition choices that lead to congestion in the first place.

If you want to start lowering blood sugar levels while eliminating poor nutrition, two tablespoons of this drink may be able to help you!
