It’s also a good idea to avoid fungus-prone grains like wheat and corn and cut out excess sugar from your diet (7).

A group of Korean researchers have also discovered that the skin on pumpkin seeds contains Pr-2 proteins which fight the species of candida responsible for vaginal yeast infections, yeast-related diaper rash, and other yeast-related health problems (8).

You can also add more coconut oil and apple cider vinegar to your diet, which are both potent anti-fungals (9,10).

How To Clear Your Sinuses

Along with changing your diet, you can clear the fungus from your sinuses by rinsing out your nose and mouth with a saline solution.

Just use a cup boiled water with ½ a teaspoon each of sea salt and baking soda. Pour it into a sterile eye dropper or a neti pot and drain your sinuses daily.
