25 Jun Rainy season and Sinusitis
As monsoon season has gradually set in, turning the landscape around you green, sleeping at night all bundled up feels so cosy and warm. Admiring the downpour with a hot cup of coffee is also a time where uninvited guests barge in. The queues in hospitals and clinics become longer as monsoon progresses. Sinusitis, diarrhoea, indigestion, skin diseases, arthritis are just few of the uninvited guests.
Mid June to mid-august is referred as Varsha Rithu or the monsoon period, it is said during this time sinusitis occurs the most. Inflammation of the sinus is termed as sinusitis. It involves the mucous membrane lining of the sinus. The sinus glands are generally filled with air, but in case of inflammation, these glands get blocked and filled with mucous and may become infected. Nasal allergy is usually linked to sinusitis. Rhinitis and clod may increase the blocking of the nose. Signs and symptoms of sinusitis are excessive and constant sneezing, headache after waking up in the morning, runny nose, pain in teeth and upper jaw, heaviness while bending the head, blockage of one or both nostrils, weakness, fever, tiredness, cough than becomes severe at night and nasal congestion.
There are two types of sinusitis, the first one is Acute Sinusitis which lasts up to four weeks and the second, Chronic Sinusitis lasts several weeks and can linger for years. Homeopathy treatment acts fast and is effective in acute and chronic sinusitis. The treatment not only drains the sinuses and kills the germs but it also acts on the root cause this preventing recurrences.
Some simple powerful natural remedies that you can try at home are:
· Stay hydrated: drinking plenty of water helps as well as staying away from sugar added in juices, clear broth and hot tea help very much too.
· Dissolve excess mucus: spicy food like cayenne pepper, hot sauce or horseradish can be mixed with apple cider vinegar and lemon juice to create a mucus dissolving elixir.
· Steam inhalation: breaks up the thick mucus with a few drops of eucalyptus oil in hot water. With your face down over the hot water drape a towel over the back of your head and inhale the steam.
