I’ve been hearing a lot about hot pepper (Capsaicin) as a natural alternative for allergy relief. Capsaicin, the property that determines the “heat’ in hot peppers, like jalapeños and habaneras, (the more capsaicin the hotter the pepper and vice versa) has long been known to act as a decongestant, as any of us know who have bitten into a hot pepper and felt all of our sinuses immediately clear. Sinus Buster (www.sinusbuster.com), a nasal medication for the relief of rhinitis allergies and headaches, incorporates capsaicin as a major ingredient. Of all the alternative, homeopathic methods of allergy relief, this is the first to gain FDA registration.
Sinus Buster was created by Wayne Perry, a self defense instructor who also suffered from headaches and allergy congestion. Part of his demonstration was that he allowed himself to be spayed with pepper spray. One day he had to perform while suffering from a severe headache; as the spray hit him, he realized his headache was gone, his nasal passages were clear, and that he may be onto something big. Perry knew that police pepper spray wasn’t the method of delivering this medication, and after some time of research, he came up with the nasal spray, Sinus Buster.
Capsaicin is not the only effective ingredient in Sinus Buster. The creator found that it works better in conjunction with other natural ingredients, such as eucalyptus and sea salts. The eucalyptus helps keep the passages open longer and lets the capsaicin penetrate further, which extends relief. The sea salts act as natural irrigators and sooth dry nasal passages and sore, itchy throats. Other natural ingredients, like rosemary extract and Vitamin C, offer additional relief and benefits.
Perry has created different forms of Sinus Buster, including a mild spray and a maximum relief spray. Depending on your symptoms and types of allergies, these can be used individually or in combination with one another to provide the best relief from your allergies.
When first using the product, you will probably notice a mild burn (or as Perry states, “an exhilarating bite”) in your nasal passages and nose that lasts for just a few seconds. This is due to the capsaicin, but after a few times your sensitivity will diminish as will any discomfort. Some people are more sensitive, just like in the heat of the food they can tolerate. However, Sinus Buster is not recommended for children under 12.
Sinus Buster is all homeopathic, natural, no addictive, and can be used as often as needed. The side effects associated with other allergy medicine are not present with Sinus Buster. The effects are immediate so it is great for “allergy attacks” as well as chronic allergies. This medication fights the cause directly by clearing your nasal passages; it does not mask the symptoms as many other allergy medications do.
