The problem of sinusitis is emerging as an epidemic in metropolitan cities. Sinusitis usually starts with some infection or allergic reaction in paranasal sinuses. Stress, poor lifestyle and bad blood circulation due to lack of physical exercise can deteriorate the body’s immune response to invading organism in the sinus area. The problem with the current remedies are that they fail to correct the underlying cause that contribute to the sinus problems, so the disorder recurs. Second, they do not improve the body own mechanism for rectifying such disorders, rather they temporarily gives symptomatic relief.
Symptoms includes sneezing, running nose, nasal congestion, headache etc.
According to Ayurveda, Kapha is the transporting system for certain fluids collectively called phlegm. This fluid is normally protective, lubricating and cleansing for all mucosal linings. Because of the weakened Agni of digestive system, this fluid becomes abundant and of undesirable nature. It gets accumulated in the sinus because of lack of normal movement of air and mucous due to inadequate exercise, irritation from pollens, smoke, dust etc. If the accumulation of phlegm and disruption of air flow continues, it distorts the entire tissue structure (Dhatus) of face leading to tightness, heaviness and pain.
The goal of Ayurveda is to promote the body’s natural healing and self-repair ability not only to cure sinusitis but also to prevent the recurrence.
The treatment in Ayurveda consists of two main types, One is shaman chikitsa in which various herbal & herbomineral medicines are given to pacify the vitiated doshas.
However, if the doshas are vitiated beyond a particular level and get accumulated in minute channels, need to be eliminated or removed from body. In such cases, Shodhan Chikitsa (PANCHKARMA) is indicated.
An excess of doshas accumulated in sinus, throat, nose or head area are eliminated by means of the nearest possible opening, the nose. Thus, nasal administration of various medicines called “NASYAM” is indicated for Sinusitis, Migraine etc. The Nasyam has been proved very effective in treating Sinusitis and doctors at Shri Kaya Kalp are giving excellent results in sinusitis with Nasyam, herbal medicines and certain dietary regulations.
Avoid any kind of cold/chilled food. Dairy and curd should be avoided.
