Sinus, the commonly used term for sinusitis, is usually a chronic problem faced by many individuals. Sinuses are the air-filled cavities in the bones of the skull and are situated in the forehead, nose and cheeks. The inflammation of the tissue lining these sinuses is called sinusitis. It is commonly associated with a stuffy nose, frequent cold and headache.
Ayurvedic medicines and Panchakarma therapy cure the disease of its roots. Panchakarma therapy like Vaman (emesis) and Nasya (nasal drops) followed by Ayurvedic medicines according to the Prakruti or body type of the individual can help completely cure this problem.
However, here are some natural remedies to fight the chronic sinus problem.
- Jala Neti - However weird the process of Jala Neti may seem, it is by far the best and most effective natural treatment I have come across in my career. It clears out the dirt, bacteria and mucus and reduces the inflammation of the inner lining of the sinuses. It can completely cure sinusitis if practised daily for a period of 5 to 6 months. It reprogrammes the body’s mechanism to fight against nasal infections thus giving lifelong immunity against sinusitis. Learn the procedure from your nearest Ayurvedic physician or a Yoga centre.
