What is Sinusitis?
In general, sinusitis is a commonly experienced condition, which is characterised by inflamed sinus lining that is typically triggered by a viral infection. Furthermore, the sinuses are actually small cavities filled with air that are located behind the forehead and cheekbones. However, they can be filled with fluid, viruses, bacteria, and fungi, thus resulting in a sinus infection.
Sinus blockage can be triggered by a common cold, deviated septum, nasal polyps, or allergic rhinitis.
Additionally, those experiencing nose or sinus structural blockage, weak immune system, allergies, or asthma have a higher risk of developing the condition.
There Are a Few Sinusitis Types:
– Recurrent sinusitis. It is followed by a few attacks in a period of one year.
– Sub-acute sinusitis. This type of sinusitis is characterised by experiencing the symptoms within a period of 2 months.
– Acute sinusitis. It includes symptoms of a common cold, like facial pain, and a runny, stuffy nose that lasts about 1 month.
– Chronic sinusitis. This type of sinusitis could last more than 2 months.
Treating And Responding to Sinus Problems With Natural Remedies.
Emmett Walsh, Medical Herbalist states that a huge contribution to sinus problems are from inappropriate diet and very likely gut problems as well. The mucus that’s produced in the sinuses and in the lungs is primarily a function of excess mucus production being produced in the gut itself, from inappropriate foods for that individual.
Some of the herbs to consider are
You can take these four herbs as teas or as tinctures. Follow the instructions or get advice on how exactly to take them and the level to take them from a medical herbalist. Everything relates to each individual.
As a preventative measure, eating increased amounts of garlic two months before the onset of the hay fever season and sinus problems associated with that is a good help. Using oils in the nasal passages can help. Powders can also help.
The Old-Fashioned Snuff
The old-fashioned snuff was also used by people to treat or respond to sinus problems. Some of the powders we recommend to use are very simple ingredients and are easily available. As a natural remedy, Emmett Walsh recommends the following in the treatment of sinus problems and hay fever.
Use one-third of each of the following in powder form:
- Ginger powder
- Black pepper powder
- Long pepper powder.
Be sure to use powders, it’s not the granulated ginger or the granulated black pepper that we use in our meals.
You mix them, either one-third if you did three, or 50/50 if you have the two.
How To Use The Powder Mixture
- Just a little pinch can be placed in each nostril and pulled in.
- Close the other nostril, pull it up the nostril that you’re applying the powder to and that will go up the nose and irritate the lining and cause expulsion of phlegm and very quickly.
- Do the same through the other nostril.
- Do that in the early morning.
There will be quite an amount of extra and excess mucus produced and expelled for about maybe 15 to 20 minutes, half-an-hour, and that’s what you want to do. Any little bit of discomfort that’s associated with that will soon pass and you will very often have a far more pleasant day with less of the symptoms for the rest of the day.
