Many vitamin co-factors can help lower inflammation if there is a genetic/environmental need.

Eat a more alkaline diet. It's not a fad diet just eat foods that causes less inflammation to the body and you'll see results immediately like no more acid reflux. Avoid foods with transfats used in may processed foods.

Drink lots of leaf teas, none of that fake powder or syrup teas.

Avoid process foods and eat lots of fish or get fish oil.

Regarding "cures". I can honestly say the allergy/sinus issues I lived with prior to 1995 were "cured" for 20 yrs. In the last year and in my 21st year of Grape Seed Extract, allergy issues have kicked in especially upon waking up...I don't know why but perhaps the grape seed ex isn't as effective for me after 20 yrs and could be the weather changes we are dealing with, BUT I certainly will not stop taking grape seed ex and DO NOT take any drugs for allergies/sinus issues.

Grape Seed extract is recommended for heart health too.
