Sinusitis may be one of the most miserable everyday ailments that can afflict you during seasonal change. Unbearable pressure, mucus to the max, and throbbing or wincing pain can leave you unable to think, function, or smell. If you get one sinus infection, chances are it’ll become a repeat performance throughout the year, triggered by allergies and the occasional common cold. For “sinus people,” a milieu of factors come together to create a perfect storm in their nasal passages. Fortunately, you can find quick relief and long-term support with natural approaches, getting you out of the “sinus people” category for good.

Alongside a healthy diet and lifestyle, steams, nasal rinses with saltwater, or salted antimicrobial teas, consider adding antimicrobial herbs to your routine as well.

Sinus Health and Triggers

If you’re a “sinus person,” you know all too well where your sinuses are located, because you often feel pain and pressure within them. Your sinuses are hollow cavities in your skull above your eyebrows and nose, down into your nose, and along the sides of the nose under your eyes. The mucosal lining can produce more than a liter of mucus in a normal day, which helps keep the area from getting dry and traps germs and allergens that you inhale to prevent them from infiltrating the body. You swallow this mucus without noticing. Within mucus are enzymes and antibodies that help eliminate or neutralize invaders.

When infections or allergies kick in, histamine bumps up mucus production, swells your mucosal lining, and increases antibody activity. The mucus can thicken as well. Sinusitis refers to inflamed sinus passages, and can be acute or chronic, infected or not. Symptoms include local discomfort and pain, post-nasal drip, runny nose, pressure, congestion, cough, bad breath, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, hearing problems, and difficulty sleeping.
