Ayurvedic Treatment for Sinusitis (Shirodhara, Nasya Karma & Pachakarma)

Sinusitis is a condition in which the lining of your sinuses becomes inflamed. Four hollow air spaces make up sinuses. They’re located in the bones behind cheeks, jaw, and eyebrows. Sinuses make mucus, a fluid that cleans bacteria and other particles out of the air one breathe. Mucus is removed from your sinuses by draining out your nose. But when your sinuses are swollen, the mucus has nowhere to go. It stays in your sinuses and become painful and uncomfortable.

There are different types of sinusitis, including:

Acute sinusitis: A sudden onset of cold-like symptoms such as runny, stuffy nose and facial pain that does not go away after 10 to 14 days. Acute sinusitis typically lasts 4 weeks or less.

Chronic sinusitis: A condition characterized by sinus inflammation symptoms lasting 8 weeks or longer.

Recurrent sinusitis: Several attacks within a year.

According to ayurveda, sinusitis can be correlated to DushtaPratishyaya, where the main dosha affected is kapha. It gets aggravated and vitiates the pranavata (a subtype of Vata), which is mainly present in the respiratory tract.

Ayurveda treatment for sinusitis can help you experience relief.
