A Natural Remedy for the Symptoms of Sinusitis
You go to bed one evening and dream of a peaceful nights rest. Ahhhhh…but somewhere in the middle of the night you awaken gasping for air or you awake with a painfully dry throat because you’ve been breathing through your mouth. Your sinuses are stopped up completely! You toss and turn; you beat your pillow but you know you must get up out of your nice warm bed in order to breathe. You discover once out of bed you have a terrific headache. Then as things begin to loosen up you may have yellow or green mucus to start dripping from your nose.
However, we’re not perfect and may catch it regardless, so let’s examine some common ways that we can treat the symptoms of Sinusitis. Decongestants such as pseudoephedrine and phenylpherine are good temporary remedies that help drain the sinuses. Prescribed inhalers, while not decongestants, assist in healing the sinus membranes. Over-the-counter nasal sprays like Dristan and Afrin are basically ‘spray’ versions of decongestants and can be used for a few days or so. Humidifiers or sprays that contain salt water in them will ‘melt’ the infected sinuses away (so to speak).
Sinus problems seem to affect everyone these days. Many try to relieve the headache pressure by using very warm cloths over the eyes. Another remedy would be the use of a saline solution in the nose. Yes, these things may give relieve briefly. However, we know that sinus infections are caused by viruses, bacteria and fungi growing inside of our sinuses. One thing that may pop into our mind is to sign up for sinus surgery.
Besides the tender nose, pressure in the forehead there is also the constant feeling that one’s ears are stuffed or that something is pushing in the ear canal. Sinus sufferers often hear a crackling noise in their ears that must be from the mucus or the irritation in the sinus cavities. The ears don’t usually hurt but the constant clearing and crackling noise is irritating and often leads to what could become a dangerous habit of inserting cotton swabs in the ear canal to try and clear out the obstruction.
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.
