See if this sounds familiar – you wake up feeling stuffy, like your head is full of warm soup and your ears feel like you’ve been flying at 30,000 feet – but your lying in bed. You get up and it doesn’t get much better; in fact, it gets a little worse – maybe your head begins to pound a little (or a lot!), your nose starts to run, you feel like you can’t take in a deep breath (even through your mouth), and your throat hurts. If this sounds familiar, you are not alone.

Upper respiratory challenges are one of the most common complaints that we see; some people take over the counter (OTC) or prescription medications, others have tried alternative solutions (like a netti pot and/or nasal rinses), but most are resigned to the thought that they need to live with these symptoms for the rest of their lives. Luckily, for most people, this isn’t true.

Targeting the Root Cause(s)

There can be many reasons that different people suffer from upper respiratory symptoms – like stuffy head, nasal/sinus congestion, headache, plugged ears, scratchy throat and difficulty breathing. This is why trying to address just one of the causes – like using antibiotics for a bacterial infection or an anti-histamine for allergies – often doesn’t work for the majority of people and offers only partial relief for those that they do help. Therefore, in order to get all of these upper respiratory symptoms under control, we need to go after as many possible underlying causes as possible.

We have found the combination of Sinatrol and the daily use of the Nasaline to be a safe and extremely effective solution for the vast majority of upper respiratory symptoms. Sinatrol is a specialized preparation of botanicals and nutrients formulated for the support of upper respiratory challenges and overall immune health. The standardized botanicals and nutrients in Sinatrol target sinus-related issues by clearing airway passages, decreasing the viscosity of mucus and supporting the immune system in its fight against a wide variety of microbes, including yeast, fungus, bacteria and viruses.

N-acetyl cysteine is a powerful amino acid that dissolves mucus by breaking up the disulfide bonds that contribute to mucus density. The plant enzyme bromelain acts synergistically with N-acetyl cysteine with protein-digesting effects to further decrease mucus viscosity and promote drainage. Licorice root extract soothes respiratory irritation, while thyme extract soothes the sinuses, helps loosen phlegm and works to help combat yeast and/or fungal invaders. Andrographis, Siberian ginseng and berberine round out the immune enhancing effects of Sinatrol, improving the immune response to viruses and bacteria.

Typical dosing of Sinatrol is 2 capsules 2-3x/day on an empty stomach.

Using Sinatrol along with a Nasaline on a daily basis will help most people get their upper respiratory symptoms, including stuffy head, nasal/sinus congestion, headache, plugged ears, scratchy throat and/or difficulty breathing under control, allowing them to sleep better, breath easier and improve their energy. If you suffer from upper respiratory infections, give Sinatrol and a Nasaline a try – you’ll be glad you did!
