Sinusitis is the inflammation of the mucosa of the sinuses (in the lower part of the forehead and under the cheekbones).

Symptoms of sinusitis include a headache or a headache, fever, nasal voice, nasal discharge, thick and low, decreased the sense of smell, etc.

If we do not feel any improvement, we can try removing foods rich in gluten. Overall are dairy where people feel they are worse. Of course, every case is different.
  • Instead, we have to enhance foods rich in vitamin C and / or bioflavonoid (fruits, raw vegetables, and sprouts) to strengthen our immune system.
  • It should also, in cases of sinusitis, increase consumption of foods rich in beta-carotene (carrots, pumpkin, etc.) and collaborating with the proper maintenance and mucosal immune system.
  • Promote the consumption of spicy foods (turnips, radishes, chili, ginger, onion, garlic, wasabi or Japanese radish, cayenne pepper, black pepper, etc.) as they tend to decongest the nose while breasts have antimicrobial properties.

Medicinal plants and herbal medicine

The ideal combination for sinusitis should include both anti-inflammatory and antiseptic or antimicrobial plants: camomile, mallow, eucalyptus, echinacea and a few drops of propolis. This mixture can be taken two or three times a day.

The Lota, a kind of small jug or bowl (filled with water with sea salt) with a tube or hole whose punta introduced into one nostril is used. The water raises one by one nostril and out the other. Then we repeat the operation on the other hole to make them sound good clean nostrils. The improvement is sometimes dramatic.We can do it once or twice a day.
