When you have building pressure, you will feel as though your head is going to explode. Such pain can be excruciating and you should be glad if you do not have such problems. Even if you don’t, do share the following tips on how to get rid of sinus pressure with those whom you know are suffering from sinus.
1. Puncture the Pressure
Acupuncture therapy, with the help of someone trained in dealing with sinus pressure, gets rid of the pressure naturally. The sinus pressure points when accurately targeted will help as far as how to get rid of sinus pressure in the ears and head is concerned.
Here’s a great video by Lindsay Rose, a Certified Holistic Health Practitioner on how to relieve sinus pressure with acupuncture:
2. Seek Relief with Yoga
You must be thinking how yoga can help. Here’s why: yoga exercises related to the nasal passages improve your overall health and prevent you from getting infected with sinus in the long run.
So, it’s win-win for you. For those thinking of how to get rid of sinus pressure through exercise, this is it.
3. Avoid Chlorinated Pools
If you like swimming but suffer from sinus problems, do remember to refrain from using chlorinated pools when you go for a swim. You might think that there is moisture. But in actual fact, the chlorine can irritate the mucous membranes in your nasal passages and cause discomfort.
4. Get Supplements
Get supplements from your doctors. Although there are no definite “antidotes” for nasal congestion and sinus pressure, there are some good supplements around for sure.
For instance, the herb andrographis – also called “Indian Echinacea” – appears to aid in relieving cold symptoms, if consumed within three days of the onset. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for his recommendation.
This term should be familiar to most of you out there. If you are wondering how to get rid of sinus pressure at home without much hassle, consider aromatherapy.
Aromatherapy involves the use of essential oils extracted from medicinal herbs. It helps to reduce sinus pressure and provide relief. Try eucalyptus, olive oil, rosemary or other essential oils.
Consider irrigation, yes, irrigation. It may sound weird but it works. This technique simply means flushing out nasal passages with salt water. The water washes out mucus and other debris such as allergens or germs, while keeping your nasal passages moist.
There are various ways to experiment this. You could just use a syringe, a neti pot, or other irrigators available in stores. Ensure that your equipment is clean before you use it. Sterilise it if need be.
7. Increase your Liquid Intake
Consuming as much liquids – soups, especially and not forgetting water, soothes the body by giving it the quota of fluid it needs and this in turn allows the nasal passages to remain wet.
This also enables the mucus to flow through the nasal passages properly and regularly. Refrain from getting runny nose, which signals the beginning of sinus pressure.
I believe that you should have gained some useful knowledge in dealing with sinus pressure by now.
