are there natural remedies for sinusitis?

December 20, 2006 2:06pm CST
Actually,doctor says I suffer from both,sinusitis and migrane.I have head-ache throughout the year,but never more than in winter.I feel as though my skin is on fire sometimes,my total skin that is.This happens more when I'm in an or I'm under a fan.Sometimes,when I get up suddenly from sleep,I feel giddy and the world sems to darken,momentarily.I have my nose running every winter morning.Whenever I feel the morning sun on my face,my eyes(closed)ache so much.I often feel suffocation start from my stomach if I feel bored. I'm not sure if I've really got sinusitis or migrane or both of them in a evil conspiracy,because there are some of these unexplained symptoms.Another unexplained symptom is that the ache is not localised to the head,but runs down my entire back.Please help me,I have to study for my exams and this is so maddening.

I too suffer from sinusitis. I didn't realize about the cold foods and stuff setting it off. I work in a very dusty enviroment with air conditioning. I find the air conditioning really sets me off. I take sinus relief at night so I can sleep and my snoring is under control. I also find steam helps to clean up my sinuses. I tried saline drops in my nose too but that didn't do much. I hate the thought of antbiotics but I think that is my next stop. I may try curry too. What are you supposed to do with it? Does anyone know? Any help is appreciated!

Homeopathy is a very good long term remedy for sinusitis than allopathy. Do steam inhalation regularly. It does help reduce sinus blockages. Steam with honey in hot water. Stay away from Icecream like cold stuff if not from cold drinks. People with sinuses should avoid daily head baths. All these thongs do help control sinusistis. I can say that as i am also a sufferer of sinusitis and these things realy helped me. Hope it helps you too. Take care.

There are several things you can do. I have sinisitis too. One thing you can do is not to take a shower after sweating. Avoid dust as much as possible. Try not to eat too many "cool" foods like yoghurt, etc. Try to take a bath only once in the middle of the day, and do not take a shower at night; also, don't sit in a AC room or under the fan after a shower. You can try inhaling steam, which a good remedy as well. If you live in India, you can get oils that contain natural substances to heal this condition. And there are also Ayurvedic centers that offer "Nassim" treatments, which involves adding drops into your nostrils.

I've heard that curry works wonders, but I haven't tried it. Usually, I end up with antibiotics.
