What Exactly Is Sinusitis?
The body almost always has a cavity called a sinusitis. However, the paranasal sinuses will be the focus of this article.
The cavities that sit alongside your nose and above your eyebrows are called sinuses. Sensitive membranes produce mucus in these pockets. Sinuses are very important, even though they might not sound very nice.
The inside of your nose would always be dry without them. You would experience discomfort as well as difficulty preventing infection. This is because your nose’s mucus and hairs serve as a shield.
The mucus in the sinuses catches any small particles of bacteria, dirt, viruses, or dust that may fly up your nose. By taking this action, harmful contaminants are prevented from fully entering your body.
However, many people experience sinus issues. Sinus problems, including headaches, can be brought on by various factors, including pollution, infections, and physical trauma.
Ayurveda Perspective On Sinusitis
According to Ayurveda, Kapha dosha is vitiated and is produced in excess. Mucous stagnation i.e. excess Kapha in and around the sinus obstructs the Vata from its pathway. It gives rise to infection as external factors like dust pollens allergens get settled with the mucous around the sinus.
This is also associated with the inflammation of the sinus as the Pitta is vitiated in the process. If the Kapha is not removed properly from the sinus, it becomes continues and reoccurrence of symptoms like blocked or running nose, facial pain or pressure ,loss of smell, sneezing, congestion and heaviness is seen.
