sinus is a cavity (air chamber) within the bone. These are four sets
of open spaces within the bones of the
skull. They are above the eyes (frontal
sinuses), to either side of the nose inside the
cheekbones (maxillary sinuses), behind the bridge of
the nose (sphenoid sinuses) and in the upper nose (ethmoid sinuses).
Normally, mucous cleans the
any particles that collects in the
sinuses. With the help of tiny hairs called cilia,
mucous is moved out of sinuses so that it can drain into
the nasal passages.
However, when you have cold or
allergy attack, your sinuses become inflamed or infected
and drainage cannot occur. If the sinuses are too small to
handle the amount of volume of mucus produced by the
body, they can become clogged.

up the mucous. This can't be done all the time,

or your pocket or purse and used as needed.
It rapidly relieves congested, inflamed and swollen sinuses. Reduces or gets rid of thick mucus draining into the throat and the frequent hawking accompanying it.
Lastly, it addresses and gets rid of the headaches caused by the congestion and inflammation of mucus

headaches and congestion in my nasal passages. I would
go to the doctor for many different types of
prescriptions to handle it, but they mostly made me
drowsy, foggy, or didn't really relieve my symptoms. So
I just got used to suffering with sinus problems."
"Now I take
the Sinus Relief Formula. I really love it because it
helps clear up my sinus headaches almost immediately. It
doesn't make me drowsy, it helps relieve the congestion
in my nasal passages and doesn't have any side effects.
From Bess F. in
During the months of April and May I was really suffering with chronic sinus congestion. At first I didn't even know what it was or why my head was hurting so badly. Then, I received an e-mail
that talked about the Sinus Relief Formula. It occurred to me at that time that I might be suffering from sinus pressure, something I never had before. I ordered a bottle, used it as the directions state, and within a very short time felt relief. I could feel everything draining and emptying out of my sinuses. I have not had the problem since. I have just ordered my second bottle, not because I need it anymore, but because I don't ever want to be without it....just in case.
By the way, the reason I was willing to try the new Sinus Relief Formula is because I am a very satisfied customer with another one of your
