|Dealing With Winter Sinus|
Winter sinus can be very tough to cure. If it becomes chronic then the sinus patient needs to be very particular about treating sinusitis. The winter sinusitis patient has to deal with the debilitating problem for twelve weeks or more at a stretch. There are numerous symptoms of winter sinus such as facial swelling and pain, thick nasal discharge, nasal obstruction, tarnished post-nasal drainage and low grade fever. There are also other symptoms such as constant bad breath, unrelenting headaches and fatigue.
The medical fraternity in the West prescribes decongestants, pain relievers, antibiotics and mucolytics to cure sinus infections. Prolonged use of these medications can make the patient dependent upon them. Antibiotics can also work in only favorable conditions. Prescription medications can be effective, but they do have side effects. As such, natural medical treatments such as Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine have become quite useful to cure recurring bouts of sinusitis. Using herbs and acupuncture, one can treat acute sinusitis without any side-effects. Supplementary treatment in the form of Bromelain, Vitamin C, eucalyptus oil, Astragalus and Echinacea can be very effective in treating winter sinus.
