Ayurvedic Treatment of Sinusitis

Sinusitis (also known as sinus, allergic sinusitis, rhinosinusitis) is a common condition majority of people complain about. It is quite troublesome. People usually get fed up with the condition due to no relief despite of proper allopathic treatment. It’s the harsh reality that there is no long lasting cure of allergic sinusitis in allopathic treatment.


What is Sinusitis?


Every person is born with hollow spaces behind the bones of their face. These hollow spaces are known as sinuses. Increased nasal secretions due to nasal allergy leads to the accumulation and blockage of the sinuses. This causes swelling/ inflammation which results in congestion over cheeks and in between your eyes,nose or forehead.


So, Sinusitis is the inflammation of the sinuses. It is characterised by headache, heaviness in face or forehead area, nasal blockage, congestion between eyes, swollen or puffy eyes, watery eyes and nose, ringing sounds in ears, fatigue and so on. It is commonly associated with nasal allergy i.e. allergic rhinitis, hay fever or repetitive sneezing, blocked or stuffy nose and falling of secretions in the throat. 




The patient may experience one or more of these symptoms:

  1. Headache
  2. Pressure on face or facial pain
  3. Runny and blocked nose
  4. Puffy, swollen or watery eyes
  5. Congestion around your eyes, cheeks, nose or forehead
  6. Cough
  7. Foul breath from mouth
  8. Reduced sense of smell
  9. Pain and tenderness around your eyes, cheeks, nose or forehead
  10. Discharge(phlegm) from the nose or drainage down the throat(post nasal drip)
  11. In some cases, the patient may feel tired or fatigue 





55% of patients with sinusitis have a history of nasal allergy so, the main causes of sinusitis are: 

  1. Increased nasal secretions of nasal allergy i.e. hay fever or allergic rhinitis
  2. Polyps due to outgrowth in the nose that can lead to inflammation.
  3. Weak immunity due to other illnesses or treatments being rendered.
  4. Allergic reaction to allergy particles such as dust, smoke, pollens, pet dander.
  5. Structural problems in the nose such as a deviated septum (Septum is the symmetrical wall between nostrils. The misalignment of septum leads to poor drainage of nasal passage which can furthermore cause inflammation of the sinus)

How Steroids And Antibiotics Worsen Your Sinusitis?


Steroids and antibiotics may relieve the symptoms for a short span but the sinusitis will recur. They pose serious side effects and increase the dependence of patients by reducing their immunity. Usage of steroids and antibiotics for a long time can cause diabetes, hypertension, weight gain as well as they furthermore worsen the sinusitis.


Ayurvedic Perspective Of Sinusitis


When Ama, the waste product of digestion gets mixed with Shleshaka Kapha in the area of the sinuses, a very toxic product is formed. This is called Shleshma. This obstructs the channel of the sinuses. If Pitta also involves itself then inflammation also occurs in the sinuses.


Proven Research-Based Home Remedies For Patients Suffering From Sinusitis 


  1. Apply a warm compress to relieve swelling and facial pressure. Use a warm, wet towel to apply across your forehead, eyes, and cheeks.
  2. Do neti with neti pot and saline water. If you do not have neti pot then you can do nasal rinsing with saline water.
  3. Take steam with plain water or put few drops of eucalyptus oil in water and take steam.
  4. Consume lots and lots of fluids and water.
  5. Prepare decoction of Tulsi and Ginger tea and have it by sipping. 
  6. Cover your face and head with hot towel to clear your sinuses for a while.
  7. Use a humidifier at home.
  8. Keep your home free from mites by installing an air filter system and keeping pets away from your bedrooms.
