Sinusitis is an irritation or swelling of the tissue lining in the sinuses (cavity within a bone, especially one in the bone of face or skull connecting nasal cavities). Normally sinuses are filled with air. In sinusitis, a sinus become blocked and gets filled with fluid, germs (bacteria, viruses and fungi), can grow and cause infections.

Ayurveda considered Sinusitis as kaphaja shirashoola, a condition where there is dull pain in the head, throughout the day and felt more at night.
Unhealthy diet which includes fried, oily, cold, unctuous, heavy and incompatible food causes impairment of all three doshas (bio-energies). Impaired Kapha (bodily humor) accumulates in the sinuses, thus blocking the flow of Vata (air). Impaired Pitta (fire) causes swelling and irritation of the tissues of the sinuses. All these three doshas vitiate rakta (blood) situated in the shiras (head) and leads to shiroroga (diseases of head).

Ayurveda suggests following a healthy regimen that does not lead to the aggravation of doshas (bio energies). To maintain this health- a good code of conduct and way of living like… Daily regimen, seasonal regimen, way of eating and diet plans etc should be practiced. Following good personal and social code of conduct helps to gain long, peaceful, happy and healthy life.

Ayurveda suggests to include daily nasya (nasal drops), dhoomapana (inhalation of fume), kavala-gandusha (gargling with medicated decoctions), and regular exercise in the daily regimen. Avoid suppression of natural urges like tears and vomiting, exposure to cold or dusty and dry weather, staying awake till late in the night, and sleeping in the daytime. Food that causes impairment of three doshas (bio-bioenergy) like oily, spicy, dry, too hot, too cold, indigestible and incompatible food are to be avoided.
