How To Get Rid of Sinus Infection with Homeopathic Medicines

homeopathic remedies for sinus Waking up with a headache, and on top of it a blocked nose is a rough start to the day. If this becomes a routine occurrence and even the face hurts with general heaviness in the head, it’s a medical condition called Sinusitis. Sinuses are air-filled cavities within the skull bone. These hollow spaces in the skull are situated in cheek bones, forehead, behind the bridge of the nose and between the eyes. Another set is situated in the upper region of the nose and behind the eyes. All the sinuses have the same lining that is present in the nose. This lining produces mucus, which is drained out of the sinuses through an opening in the nose. When a person has cold or allergy, swelling in the nose and sinuses can cause the drainage to get blocked. This results in the mucus being trapped in the sinuses, leading to the growth of bacteria and viruses. The inflammation of these sinuses is referred to as Sinusitis. The Homeopathic mode of treatment can completely cure Sinusitis, though it does take time. The Homeopathic remedies for sinus infections, are made of natural substances and have zero side effects, which rebuild the body’s immunity to Sinusitis.

Symptoms of Sinusitis

The symptoms of Sinusitis depend upon the sinus that gets affected. The symptoms include morning headache, blocked sensation in the nose, and heaviness and pain in the facial bones. Inflammation in the sinuses behind the bridge of the nose and in between the eyes can lead to swelling in the eyelids and the tissues around the eyes. Inflammation in the maxillary sinuses can result in pain in the upper jaw and teeth. Symptoms of severe sinus infection may be accompanied by nasal congestion, running nose, fever, tiredness and cough that may aggravate at night.

I already had root canals but it seems that the root canal did not get the infection out from the last tooth of my upper right part of my mouth. The infection seems to be high up on the root that is probably into the sinus area and is giving me head pain. I don’t know what to do and people have told me ithat th infection is so.. far up into the sinuses that they were afraid to remove the last tooth. Please help me. I just took a dose of merc. sol. 30c. I ordered pyrogenenium 30 c but I’m afraid to take it. I don’t really have fever. Which remedy is good for root of tooth on the upper right so high into the sinus area. Please help now if you can. Thank you!!! judy

  17. Michael Koval says:

    After years of acute frequent sinus infections, which a year ago graduated to constant post nasal drip (clear, thick and slimy) which drained into my bronchial tubes and lungs causing constant coughing and coughing up light yellow mucus; i underwent sinus surgery that was to”fix” the condition. (no polyps) It did not help. The post nasal drip is back, the cough wakes me up 3-4 times a night, and I am coughing up 1/2 to 1 teaspoon full of mucus each time. Not quite as bad during the day but still present. I use the sinus rinse 2-3 times a day. The only nasal spray that has offered any relief of any kind is Ipratropium. The ENT told me to stop the nasal spray and take mucinex to thin the mucus but other than that, the surgery gave the mucus no where to stick in my sinuses so my body makes too much trying to correct it. I was also told to use Nasonex twice a day to get rid of any inflammation. Nothing is working. HELP
