Treatment of Sinusitis in NaturopathyNature Cure for Sinusitis

Sinusitis refers to an inflammation of the mucous lining of the paranasal sinuses. It often follows the common cold, influenxa and other general infections. Germs which are usually eliminated from the body, sometimes find their way into these sinuses or chambers on either sides of the nasal passage, leading to this trouble.

The sinuses consist of cavities or chambers contained in the bones situated in the head and face region. The frontal, maxillary, ethmoid and sphenoid sin uses are the paranasal sinuses which communicate with the nose. The frontal sinuses lie on the frontal bone directly above the eyes. The maxillary sinuses are located one on each side of the nose under the cheekbone. The ethmoid and sphenoid sinuses are situated behind the nose or either side of it. These sinuses lighten the weight of the skull and give resonace to the voice.

Symptoms

The symptoms of sinusitis are excessive or constant sneexing, running nose, blockage of one or both nostrils, headaches and pressure around the head, eyes and face. Sinus headaches are usually flet in the forehead and in the face just below the eyes. The patient may suffer from a low grade fever, lack of appetite and toothache. He feels miserable because of difficulty in breathing. The voice is also affected because of the blocked nose.

Sinusitis results from the congestion of the sinus passages due to catarrh. It is caused by oversecretion of mucuse in the membranes lining the nose, throat and head.

In persistent chronic conditions, repeated short juice fasts may be undertaken for a week or so at intervals of two months.

Those suffering from sinusitis should completely avoid friend and starchy foods, white sugar, white flour, rice products, pies, cakes, and candies. They should also avoid strong spices. Butter and ghee should be used sparingly. Honey should be used as a sweetener. All cooked foods should be freshly prepared for each meal. Vegetables should be taken in liberal quantities. All kind of fruits can be taken with the exception of those belonging to citrus group such as lemon, lime, orange, and grapefruit.

A diet rich in vitamin A is the best insurance against cold and sinus trouble. Vitamin A is the 'membrance conditioner' as it helps build healthy mucus membranes in the nasal passage and throat. Some of the valuable sources of this vitamin useful for this condition are pumpkin, carrot, leafy vegetables, tomato, oranges, mango and papaya.
