  Sinusitis
 

Sinusitis simply means inflammation of the sinuses the air-filled pockets in the bones around your nose.


 
It usually gets started when allergies or an infection often a viral infection such as a cold irritates your nasal passages and they become inflamed, clogging the small openings to your sinuses. Bacteria then multiply in the mucus trapped in your sinuses, causing painful pressure just above your eyebrows, behind and around the eyes, or under your cheekbones. Sinusitis usually goes away after a few days, like the common cold. Steam therapy is very effective in sinus attack.
  1. Boil water in a medium size container. With your eyes closed, put your head eight inches above the mixture and a towel over your head to form a tent. Breathe deeply and slowly for ten minutes. Do this three times a day.
  2. Sleeping with your head elevated will encourage drainage during the night.
  3. Eliminating sugar from your diet will help immensely
