Sinusitis is inflammation of the paranasal sinuses. There are sinuses above the eyes, frontal sinuses on either side of the nose, inside the cheekbones, maxillary sinuses, behind the bridge of the nose (sphenoid sinuses); and in the upper nose (ethmoid sinuses). Sinuses are air-filled pockets in the skull that are connected to the nose and throat by passages to drain mucus. The sinuses are the first line of defense to protect the lungs from infection. Most cases of sinusitis affect the frontal and/or maxillary sinuses, but some or all of the sinuses can be affected, and everyone tends to have problems with a specific set of sinuses. When the sinuses are too small or poorly positioned to handle the amount of mucus produced, they can become clogged. The pressure in the sinuses increases, causing pain. Sinuses that are blocked for a long time seem to promote infection.
Recommended herbs for alternative treatment of sinusitis
Clearlungs by Ridgecrest Herbals contain Chinese herbal ingredients to restore free breathing, ease mucus buildup and improve tissue repair. Echinacea strengthens the immune system and fights viral infections. Ginger root can be crushed and applied as a poultice to the forehead and nose to stimulate circulation and drainage. Anise, fenugreek, marshmallow, and red clover help loosen phlegm and clear congestion. Fenugreek thyme from natural products relieves blocked nasal passages and sinuses. Take 2 capsules three times a day. PSI from Terra Maxa is good too. Bayberry is decongestant and astringent. Source Naturals Cat Claw Repellent Complex contains a combination of herbs designed to strengthen the body and help it deal with the outside elements. Warning: Do not use cat’s claw while pregnant. For local relief, bitter orange oil can be used to swab the nasal passages.
Additional recommendations for alternative sinusitis treatment
Do not eat dairy products, with the exception of low-fat acidic products such as yogurt and cottage cheese. Dairy products promote mucus formation. Eliminate sugar from your diet. Reduce your salt consumption. Do a cleansing fast. Drink plenty of distilled water and fresh vegetable and fruit juices. Also, drink plenty of hot liquids like soups and herbal teas. These help mucus flow and relieve congestion and sinus pressure. Adding cayenne pepper, garlic, ginger, horseradish, and raw onions to soups or teas can provide even faster relief. Eat a diet that is 75 percent raw food. If you’re taking antibiotics for a sinus infection, be sure to add an acidophilus supplement to your regimen. Do not take the acidophilus and the antibiotic at the same time.
