Sinusitis Management

Sinusitis is an inflammation of the air cavities (sinuses) within the passages of the nose. Sinusitis can occur from various factors, but every time, it results from fluid becoming trapped in the sinuses. Most commonly it is caused by infection, allergies, and chemical or particulate irritation of the sinuses. The sinuses make thin mucus that drains out of the passages of the nose. This drainage helps to keep the nose clean and free of bacteria. The sinuses are four paired air cavities in the region of head called which are connected by narrow passages. These cavities are located at:

  • Each side of your nose, near the cheekbones – Maxillary Sinus
  • Behind the forehead and eyebrows – Frontal Sinus
  • each side of the bridge of your nose, near base of the eyes- ethmoid sinus
  •  behind the eyes, deeper into your skull-sphenoid sinus

While infection is one common cause of sinusitis, some people have physical body defects that lead to sinus infections too. The most common of these defects are, abnormality of the bony partition between the two nasal passages, narrow sinus opening or nasal polyps (growth in the nasal passage that contains mucus). People with these defects regularly suffer from chronic sinus infections.

SinusitisSinusitis could be acute, sub-acute or chronic. Acute sinusitis has the shortest duration which is due to a viral infection brought on by the common cold can cause symptoms that last for 1 or 2 weeks. Acute sinusitis can also occur due to seasonal allergies. Subacute sinusitis symptoms can last up to 3 months. This condition commonly causes with bacterial infections or seasonal allergies. Whereas, chronic sinusitis occurs due to an infection because of growths in the sinuses (nasal polyps) or swelling of the lining of your sinuses. The symptoms of Chronic sinusitis last for more than 3 months which are less severe. Subacute and chronic forms of sinus infection are the cause of incomplete treatment of an acute sinus infection.

Sometimes sinusitis could be of non-infectious form also which occurs due to irritants and allergic conditions which has same symptoms and complications as that of chronic, acute and subacute sinusitis.

What is Sinusitis and how it is managed as per Ayurveda?

The clinical features of sinusitis bear a resemblance with “Suryavarta” as described in the Ayurvedic texts. And the main dosha involved is Vata and Kapha dosha. The waste product is sinus areas are mixed with Shleshaka Kapha in that area, causing a toxic, sticky mucus called Shleshma, when both sub-doshas are concurrently imbalanced.

Thus, ayurvedic Treatment for Sinusitis comprises softening and expelling aggravated doshas with the help of certain Ayurvedic nasal therapies, herbs and diet as well as breathing and yogic exercises.

As per age-old Ayurvedic principles, a comprehensive treatment for sinusitis is suggested using various herbs and panchakarma therapies to promotes sinus health, restores normal mucous secretion and supports the healing process.
