Efficient Sinusitis Remedies
Every year, 31 million adults suffer from sinusitis. The sad part is, there is no apparent treatment that is 100% foolproof. The 15 billion sinusitis-related visits to the doctor and the 200,000 sinus-related surgical procedures can attest to that. People nowadays have started to turn to the unconventional side of medicine; like herbal therapy and homeopathy (treatment of patients with heavily diluted preparations) for sinusitis remedies. Who wouldn't? Sinusitis is a really irritating condition and it is usually mistaken for the common cold by a lot of people making it harder to cure.
Not all treatments that resulted from the sinusitis-cure ventures are effective though. I've always suggested sticking to the ones that have been around for years and they most likely are quite beneficial. Sometimes, even the conventional medicine like antibiotics, decongestants, pain relief medications, and surgical procedures are not that efficient.
Like all complications, we must first find the root of the problem. What causes your sinusitis? This is because there are different remedies available for different kinds of sinusitis. The only way to know what kind of sinusitis a person suffers from is to locate the source of the inflammation; is it fungal related or allergy mediated? One thing remains the same and that is sinusitis revolves around the case of excessive mucus production. The patient just has to know what triggered the increase in production.
Ayurvedic Medicine has proven itself worthy of being labeled as one of the most recommended cure for sinusitis. It works fast and it targets the cause of the inflammation rather than the symptoms. It also helps in curing the mucus buildup due to the excess production. It increases blood flow and heat in the infected area by the use of medicinal oils being rubbed externally on the nasal passages, sometimes internally. When the blood flow increases, the excessive mucus build up will be drained. The medicinal oil for this consists of Flaxseed oil, Ginger, Eucalyptus and Guggal.
Aside from this, you can also combine steam inhalation for greater results. Steam inhalation is not effective on its own. This is why a lot of people are not relieved from steam or sinus irrigation with a netti pot. The mucus plug has to be removed first before using steam. Steam and irrigation are suitable as preventatives, mainly for allergy patients. After removing the mucus, the patient can now focus on why and how the buildup of mucus happened; specifically what cause it.
Once the reason for the sinusitis has been found, you can now treat the condition with a greater knowledge. Killing the cause will give a longer-lasting relief compared to curing the signs and symptoms, likened to the common cold, with conventional medicine. Researching about different remedies really work wonders for complications such as this.
