Sinus Problems - Alternative Medicine Treatments May Be Your Answer!

Having sinus problems can really sometimes be uncomfortable and sometimes if they are persistent can be quite painful. When the lining of the different sinus cavities happen to get inflamed this is when there is more mucous produced and because of this the ability to drain the mucus is reduced and then this just makes the congestion and the irritation even worse. Some of the symptoms of sinus problems are:

  • Congestion
  • Runny nose
  • Post nasal drip
  • Headaches
A lot of times the pain is centralized behind your eyes and around the cheekbones and some of the more conventional treatments might include:
  • Decongestants
  • Saline nasal spray
  • Oral or nasal corticosteroids
  • Antibiotics
However, some people might prefer more natural treatments and if you are one of those people, here are a few natural treatments that can be used for sinus problems.

One type of treatment used is called nasal irrigation and a lot of alternative medicine practitioners and even conventional doctors will recommend this. You can use a neti pot or a small squirt bottle that you fill with warm water that has salt in it. You can spray the warm water into your nasal cavity and it should help relieve the symptoms. You can also add things like tea tree oil, grapefruit see extract, or other types of herbs to the water as well.

You can also get different herbal remedies that are used as tinctures, in pills or taken in tea form. Flax seed or flax oil is also good to use for inflammation. You can also use cayenne pepper, garlic or horseradish to help clear the sinuses. If you take crushed horseradish and add lemon juice to it you can then use this as a decongestant. Elderflower can be used to thin out the mucus and is said to increase the circulation of the area of the sinus.

Some people will also recommend that homeopathy is used and the different strengths that should be used for a variety of different remedies are 6x, 12x, 6C, 12C and 30C and to be done twice a day for two weeks. It all depends upon what is prescribed. One is called pulsatilla and is best for those who feel better outside and feel worse when they are in warmer rooms and then there is hepar sulphuris that is for those who get worse when there is a draft and it's cooler and the nose is blocked with mucus and the nose is sore. Then silica can be used for those who have chronic sinusitis especially for the kind that is worse in cold air. Two other common things that are used are Kali bichromium and belladonna.

Another natural remedy often prescribed by alternative medicine practitioners would be apple cider vinegar. This is sometimes recommended to use as a sinus wash, to use as a gargle and to even drink it daily to get rid of mucus. This also could help to get rid of toxins in the body. It is also recommended to combine with horseradish and chew on this, if you can stand it, until the flavor is gone.

There are three other alternative therapies that are often used for sinus problems and that would be acupuncture, acupressure as well as aromatherapy which can be really helpful if the essential oils of the eucalyptus and tea tree are used in the treatment.
