Battling with chronic sinusitis?

What is it ppt free template download?
Sinusitis is triggered by allergies, a cold, or an infection. Chronic sinuses last up to several weeks; even for years. The inflammation of the nasal tissues causes a blockage in the holes that would normally drain sinuses. In some cases, this is caused by the structure of your nasal passages.

What is a deviated septum?
A deviated septum is a nose injury that you could be born with, or developed before birth. In many instances, it could be from an accident later in life, which re-positioned the wall dividing your nostrils. A clear indication of a deviated septum is the blockage of one nostril or both, frequent sinus infections, noisy breathing, snoring, difficulty breathing through the nose, regular nosebleeds and nasal congestion.

One side of the nose may also appear wider than the other. The narrowed side is blocked most of the time as there’s been an alteration with the airflow pattern through it.

Stop the irritation

  • Kick those bad habits that could be triggers (smoking).
  • Ask your doctor about nasal drops, sprays or inflammatory pills.
  • Do a daily saline (salt water) washing of your nasal passages.
  • Use a humidifier.
  • Allergy-proof your home.
  • Apply hot compresses around your head to relieve pain.

Home remedies:

  • Staying hydrated will help thin out your mucous. Drink plenty of water and hot tea (avoid alcohol, caffeine and smoking).
  • Two drops of eucalyptus and peppermint oil in hot water will help break thick mucus when inhaled.
  • Two or three teaspoons of raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar in hot water or tea can thin out excessive mucus. Add honey or lemon for taste. (Gargling with this mixture is helpful too).
  • To ease inflammation, spicy foods help relieve congestion and boosts blood circulation for quick healing.
