Your sinuses can secrete mucus and create pain if your body is having an allergic reaction to foods. Dairy and Wheat allergies often create congestion, pain, stuffy or a runny nose.
In Chinese medicine, the meridians (energy pathways) of the small intestines, large intestines, liver, and gallbladder pass through the sinus cavity. Often intestinal cleansing, liver gallbladder cleanses, or colonics are recommended for sinus relief. Injuries to the tailbone, whiplash, or other neck injuries can cause painful sinuses and headaches.
Neti pots are a great way to cleanse the nasal/sinus cavity. I like to fill my neti pot with warm sea salt water.
If you smoke…stop! You already know the litany of reasons. And if your breathing polluted air…stop! Get an air purifier or move. If you’re house is stuffy, crack a window (even if it’s freezing outside).
Over the counter and prescription nasal sprays can be addictive. Not only that but by stopping a histamine reaction, it can actually sedate the immune system and health immune response. I use Xlear nasal sprays made with a prebiotic called Xylitol.
When it’s time to see a Chiropractor or Massage
Therapist: Injuries will cause pain, pressure, and headaches. Broken nose, misaligned jaw, stiff neck, and tailbone injuries require a good chiropractor. Massage therapy can also help the body find relaxation and proper alignment.
When It’s Time To See A Specialist Or Dentist:
Growths and swelling can cause blockage, pain, pressure. Polyps are benign growths in the nose or sinuses. In the back of your throat are your Tonsils and Adenoids. There are special laser treatments that kill the infection and reduce the swelling instead of having surgery to have your tonsils and adenoids removed. Hear me out, the last thing you want to think about is a tooth infection. The roots of the upper teeth grow near or into the sinus cavity. Gingivitis and bacteria can trigger an immune response.
