Sinusitis – Homeopathy for Sinusitis

Sinusitis in Cold Weather – Homeopathy

Although sinusitis can occur in any weather but for those who suffer from sensitivity to cold weather, sinusitis can be a major issue in these months. ‘Sinusitis’ is a term referred to the inflammation of the sinuses (4 pair of air spaces in the skull). People who are sensitive to cold weather have a tendency to develop recurrent colds cough and sinusitis. Cold weather itself does not cause sinusitis but predisposes individuals who are sensitive to cold weather to develop recurrent colds and upper respiratory infections, which in turn causes issues like sinusitis. Homeopathy has an excellent treatment for sinusitis and also for helps in treating ones ‘cold weather sensitivity’ very effectively – Thereby by improving ones resistance to cold weather related problems.

Sinuses are four pairs of hollow spaces inside our skull situated around the inside of the nose. They are located behind the forehead, bridge of the nose, cheeks and one pair is situated just behind the eyes. All these spaces are linked to the inside of the nose through small openings.  They are lined by the lining (same as that of the nose) which produces mucous and is drained through the openings from the inside of the nose. Sinuses provide resonance to our sound and also their anatomical presence makes our skull light for the neck to hold it.

Inflammation in any of these sinuses is called as sinusitis. Sinusitis can be of acute or chronic in nature. Recurrent colds, allergies can cause swelling in the nose which leads to blockage in the drainage of the mucus from the sinuses. This entrapment of mucus in the sinuses can lead to bacterial or viral infections causing inflammation in the sinuses.

The symptoms of acute sinusitis may look like an acute cold .The most common symptoms of acute sinusitis are discharge of thick yellowish or greenish mucus from nose and also from the back of the nose into throat (also called as post nasal drip), blocked sensation in the nose leading to difficulty in breathing through the nose. Pain and tenderness in the face, swelling sensation around nose, eyes and forehead. Swelling in the nose can also affect one’s ability to smell, causing reduced or no sense of smell. Pain or aching in the upper teeth or jaw is another symptom of sinusitis. Cough is also a prominent symptom in many cases especially when there is post nasal drip. Fever may also be present in acute sinusitis.

Old saying ‘a stitch in time saves nine’ suits the best for the homeopathic medicine Aconitum napelus. Aconite as it is commonly known has wonderful properties in dealing with symptoms that arise out of exposure to cold air. Few doses of it, just after the exposure to cold air can be a great help in thwarting any major attack of cold or sinusitis. My Advice for all those who suffer from such cold related sensitivity would be to carry aconite 30 in their pocket.   To treat the sensitivity towards cold weather, a prescription based on detailed analysis also known as ‘constitutional treatment’ is adopted by homeopaths as a fortifying therapy.

    I have suffered many many yrs with sinus issues. I had surgery 15 yrs Ago and I just had the ballon surgery last yr in March and in Dec. I had to have a revision Fess due to scare tissue and when the dr went in it was full of puss that had been there for years. He removed it all and opened my sinus up. I felt awesome for a week and had a horrible infection which was swabbed and sent to lab. It grew bacteria and I wa then given meds for that bacteria. 2 weeks after taking a month of meds I have gotten this infection again. Swollen in there with pressure and some small traces of yellow mucus. I am taking meds again. I’m tired of all this meds and sinus issues.
