Solved: Goodbye sinusitis!

Valuable tips from Ayurvedic medicine to prevent and support the healing of sinusitis.

Who does not know it? Winter does not want to stop, and our immune system fights daily against numerous bacteria and germs. If our defences are not strong enough, then we get sick. One of the typical winter diseases is “sinusitis”.

What is a sinus infection actually?

There are cavities in our facial bones and nose. These ensure that the skull is as light as possible. If the mucosa is inflamed in the paranasal sinuses, this is called sinusitis.

How can Ayurveda help me to prevent sinusitis?

Ayurvedic medicine states the basis for a healthy body and mind is diet and lifestyle.

Ayurvedic Tips for Preventing Sinusitis:

In everyday life:

Do not sleep during the day and avoid cold showers.
Instead, do something good for the body with warm showers and night sleep.

Protect yourself from irritants (dust, smoke, etc.) and from cigarettes.

Exercise at least 30 minutes every day.

The right diet:

  • Drink hot still water daily.
  • Avoid “cold” foods (raw salads and chilled foods).
  • Reduce animal and vegetable dairy products.
  • Avoid greasy food, fast foods, sweets, overly salted and bananas.
  • Regular consumption of garlic and onions.
  • Daily bowel movement.
  • Three hot meals a day.

Sinusitis is already there – Ayurveda to aid healing.

Once sinusitis has broken out, Ayurvedic medicine has many natural ingredients that can help in the healing process.

Below are some helpful actions that anyone can do at home:

  • Take ½ teaspoon caraway seed powder with 1 tsp of honey 10 minutes before each meal
  • Mix ½ tsp cinnamon powder with 1 tsp of honey and take 10 minutes before each meal
  • Mix 1 teaspoon fresh ginger juice with honey and take it every 4 hours.
  • A light paste of ginger juice and honey can be mixed and applied outside to the affected sinuses (for 10 minutes 1x / day).
  • Steam inhalation of 2 drops of basil and 2 drops of eucalyptus (for 10 minutes 1x / day).
  • The supportive intake of Ayurvedic supplements such as Pranda Gulika, Yashtimadhu or Tulsi.
  • During the day, the following tea combinations have a soothing effect: cinnamon turmeric tea, cinnamon-basil tea, basil-ginger tea.
  • Warming spices in the diet can additionally promote the healing: black pepper, cumin, basil, coriander, clove, turmeric, ginger and liquorice.

With these tips, you can enjoy a healthy rest of winter! 🙂
