Secret sinus infection remedies at home: Understanding the causes
Sometimes, home remedies for a sinus infection are best administered if the causes of the disease are understood so that they can be avoided. Here are a few causes of the sinus infection and how they can be rectified or avoided- to minimize or prevent sinus infection:
Temperature- great cold or hot weather makes breathing difficult as the movement of the nasal hair/ cilia is highly sensitized. Hot air irritates the nasal cavity, while cold weather may cause the nasal cavities to swell. To remedy this, one should ensure they are in a relatively optimum temperature environment; a fan or heater will adjust the temperature accordingly.
Overuse or misuse of nasal drops used for treating this infection should be regulated. This is because some make the condition worse by irritating the sinus or drying the cavities; hence worsening the infection.
Smoke, strong perfumes and other forms of pollution should be avoided as they irritate the sinus in addition to polluting the air Humidity and dry air. Humid air cause mold and fungus to grow; which, in turn, compromises one’s health and may cause the sinus infection, while dry air irritates the nasal cavities- causing overproduction of nasal secretions to enable easy breathing.
Breathing the steam of hot liquids, drinking hot beverages or water, having hot towels on one’s face, dusting rooms, airing all rooms, propping up one’s head while sleeping, irrigating one’s sinuses by use of saline solutions- rather than saline sprays-, using aromatherapy (breathing vapors of aromatherapy oils or rubbing some menthol Vaporub under the chin, forehead, etc) to open up one’s system, etc are additional and natural secret sinus infection remedies at home.
