Located behind the bones of the face are hollow spaces filled with air. These hollow spaces are the sinuses and they act as a passage between the nasal cavity and the nostrils. So what is sinusitis? Sinusitis is an inflammation or swelling of the sinuses. Common symptoms include pain or pressure in the face, nasal obstruction or blockage, and a thick post-nasal drip. Those suffering from sinusitis may also experience headaches, a fever, or feel fatigued.
There are many remedies available to one suffering from sinus trouble. First of all its important to stay in a place where plenty of fresh air is available. The rooms where one stays should not be too cool or too warm. It is also important to undertake regular exercises so as to keep the body healthy. It is important to take plenty of cool liquids like water and fruit juices and to avoid alcohol intake or take it moderately. Inhaling hot water vapor is a welcome remedy so is being in hot compresses, saunas and even steam rooms.
Sufferers of sinusitis can limit their dairy intake. This includes milk and all milk products. Dairy products have been shown to produce sinus-congesting mucus, and by limiting dairy intake, you can reduce the amount of mucus your body is producing. This will help to relieve the runny nose that can be associated with sinusitis.
Use a vaporizer it works as a natural decongestant to loosen up the secretion and soothe those inflamed membranes. The nasal cavities also become dry and irritated causing you to feel a burning sensation in the nose. Use a humidifier to put back that the natural moisture we usually have in the nostrils when we are healthy, but loses when ill.
Treating Sinusitis and treating the pain that can be a symptom of sinusitis can be two different matters. Sinus pain can be severe and in some cases even temporarily debilitating. Methods of treating this pain include over-the-counter pain relievers (especially NSAIDS, as they act as an anti inflammatory as well as a pain reliever), heat applied to the area, steam and facial massage.
Treating Sinusitis naturally may be possible with a new product called SINUVIL. SINUVIL is a natural remedy, made from a medicinal plant native to South Africa, called the Pelargonium.
