Causes Of Sinus Infection And Common Symptoms
The sinuses are air filled spaces within the bones of the face and skull. They are lined by mucous membranes and connect with the nasal cavity through small channels.
The sinuses may become infected whenever an infection is present in the nose and throat, which can occur from colds, influenza, etc. The normal drainage channels from the sinuses become blocked by the infection and this may also cause the sinuses to become infected.
People who do a lot of swimming, diving, snorkeling, and scuba diving are very prone to sinus trouble.
Common symptoms include:
- Pain over the sinuses, sometimes becoming very severe
- Aching eyes
- Discharge from the nose or down the throat
- Low grade fever
- Running eyes and nose
Many of the symptoms are very similar to hay fever, which, however, is usually due to an allergic condition, In fact, the two diseases frequently occur at the same time.
Why Herbs To Heal?
They are the most natural way to treat any problem or sickness you have. Each herb has its own medicinal properties and will prove effective in curing and helping with any ailment you may come across. Each disease has its own special herb to cure it.
Herbs are the way nature heals and truly a gift for people. For most of human history this was the medicine that was used and it is only recently, through clever advertisements and million dollar marketing departments, have chemicals been the main medicine.
You may be thinking “people live longer now than they used to and modern medicine must be the answer to this”
It’s true people live longer but this has to do with more nutrition being available, improvements in sanitary conditions, better detection of illnesses, better hospitals and technology and not having to brave the elements like our forefathers did.
Chemical medicines provide rapid relief and that’s why they are so popular. Every time you take a pill you are moving farther and farther from optimal and true health.
Each pill comes with a side effect, and although you are getting temporary relief, the problem will come back and another problem will develop with it.
We may be living longer, but are we living better? Look at the common person on the street and ask yourself if they look healthy or happy? Think of all the people with anxiety, depression, anger and spent nerves.
If people knew the power of herbs, the world would be a more productive, happy and healthier place.
Don’t be fooled by catchy commercials and celebrity endorsements. Money motivates these people, not your health. Read the fine print and side effects of these medicines and that should be enough to scare you away.
Learn the power of natures remedies and you will benefit greatly.
One of the most versatile and helpful herbs in all the herbal kingdom is Goldenseal.

All you will need is a teaspoon of the herb, a non aluminum pot or pan to boil the water, and something to strain the tea with. You are going to be sniffing this so the directions are slightly different than a tea you would drink.
Boil a cup of water and add a teaspoon of the root. Let it simmer for 30 minutes and strain it when cold or just warm. Sniff it up the nose, getting it up both sides, one side at a time; this will cleanse and heal at the same time.
Other Helpful Hints:

Eat plenty of vegetables using all kinds of greens, red cabbage, and eggplant.
Also, cold applications over the sinuses will give great relief. You can also alternate between hot and cold water, which ever gives you more relief.
