Sinusitis is just not a simple headache that you may experience occasionally. It is an inflammation of the mucous membrane in the sinus cavities behind the forehead, cheekbones and between and behind the eyes. While an occasional attack is understandable, there are many people who suffer from chronic sinusitis. The reasons could be a weak immune system, environmental pollution, allergies caused by pollen, wheat and dairy products, or intolerance to strong fragrances and perfumes.

Miracle Herbs:
While severe cases require the administration of antibiotics, you cannot use them for a lifetime. The best way to stave off recurrent sinus attacks is to boost the immune system by including some miracle foods in your diet. Some of these are:

Ginger: Ginger is critical in fighting colds, coughs, sinus and bronchial infections. Since it has antioxidants, ginger inhibits the formation of inflammatory compounds and helps to reduce swelling and pain.

Black pepper: It is very effective in preventing bacterial infections in the mouth, colon, digestive system and urinary tract. In fact, it disinfects foods in which it is added and infuses them with its protective properties. A concoction prepared with black pepper, clove, ginger, tulsi leaves and cinnamon, can serve as an effective
remedy for sinusitis. You can add some honey to it for flavour.

Pimpli: Pimpli is a traditional Ayurvedic herb sourced from roots and fruits of the pimpli plant. It helps to relieve cough, cold and sinusitis. It is also useful to treat chronic bronchitis, asthma and diseases of the spleen.
Combination of powders of these three herbs is called "Trikatu choorna" and is very useful in these conditions.
