Sinusitis When thick phlegm creates head pressure
“My cold seems to be stuck.” “I constantly have pressure in my forehead.” “I can hardly breathe through my nose.”
This or a similar experience is what people report with regard to their chronic sinusitis.
Thick mucus fills the air-filled paranasal sinuses and gets stuck there. In the morning hours sticky phlegm is secreted through the throat and the head seems to burst when the person goes downstairs. A dull pressure in the forehead or next to the nostrils appears, especially when the disease is chronic.
It doesn’t matter whether the cause is a cold or an allergic reaction such as house-dust allergy.
What is the Vedic medicine point of view on sinusitis?
Sinusitis from an Ayurvedic point of view
According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, sinusitis starts with the loss of natural balance.
Metabolic residues develop continuously due to improper lifestyle. In the case of sinusitis, toxins (in Ayurveda called “Ama”) accumulate in the paranasal sinuses, which are usually well ventilated. The physiology has lost its ability to dissolve and excrete the toxins.
In Ayurveda every patient is different and so each person’s sinusitis complaint varies. The Ayurvedic approach at our Centre is holistic.
What can Ayurveda do for you?
In Vedic medicine, sinusitis is addressed by combining various treatments into a multi-faceted approach adapted to your individual situation, as determined in a comprehensive diagnosis by one of our physicians.
An integrated approach
Increasingly, patients are finding that conventional therapies alone are not enough.
They recognize that healing must take place on all levels. In the case of chronic sinusitis, for example, an emphasis on mobilization and elimination of toxins from the physiology and respiratory tract can be recommended. It is important to bring all natural regulatory principles back into harmony. Nutritional recommendations and helpful breathing exercises, as well as specific herbal mixtures tailored according to your needs, support a health-conscious lifestyle. In this way, your natural self-healing abilities can reach the underlying cause of sinusitis effectively.
