Sinusitis!

Sinusitis is inflammation of the membrane that lines the sinus (sinuses the air-filled cavities in your forehead and cheeks and behind the bridge of your nose, produce thin mucus) and nasal passages, narrow ducts into the nasal cavity.

It can spring from hay fever, a virus or just about anything that irritates your nasal passages.

The inflammation alone can cause painful, tender eyes, cheeks and nasal passages, headaches, even earaches. Not only are sinus infections painful, they are also long lived and difficult to clear up, even with antibiotics - a good reasons to thin the mucus and encourage drainage with the right foods.

BENEFICIAL FOOD--

* Chillies, onions, horseradish, wasabi, and other foods that make
your nose run
Draining mucus is a sure way relieve sinus pressure and pain

* Capsicum, Citrus fruit and other foods rich in vitamin C--
Vitamin C is crucial for keeping the immune system in top form, means fewer colds, flus and even allergies

* Hot liquids
Sip hot tea with lemon or a steaming bowl of chicken soup
(or any soup made with clear broth) to get the ' juices' in your
head flowing

* Tea and water
The more fluids you take in, the thinner the mucus in your nasal
passages. Drink at least eight 250-ml glasses, or 2 litres daily.

* Nuts, seeds, wheat-germ, almonds, sunflower seeds and other
foods reach in vitamin E

FOOD TO BE AVOIDED

* Dairy foods
For example
Milk, Cheese and other dairy foods make mucus seem thicker

* Alcohol may swell nasal and sinus membranes

Hi. I am feeling some problem in my ears. I am addicted to use ear buds. Help me out this. Please.
Hi, If it's getting an obsession in your case, first do breathing exercises like pranatam, anulom-vilom, kapalbhatti. Do yoga daily which will release your stress, if you have any! Change your thinking and try to focus your mind to some fruitful work! So, that your mind will get diverted to something else. Medication: Instill 2 drops of Mullein oil in each ear, wait for few minutes. (Do visit ENT, if your problem is not solved.)

Feeling itching and fluids coming from ears while using ear phone? Is Cleaning the ear is a solution?

DORL, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Faridabad
Feeling itching and fluids coming from ears while using ear phone? Is Cleaning the ear is a solution?
Using ear phone for 1 hour will increase the bacteria in the ears for nearly 700 times and this ear phone will also raise the moisture in the ears and hence leads to itching and allergy in the ears, self cleaning the ears is not recommended et al becoz this leads to further trauma to ears, as those who clean the ears themselves only those have to go to ear surgeons.

Try the following remedy it will surely help you 1. Add 4 garlic cloves in 1 glass water 2. Heat water for 10 min to soften the cloves 3. Crush the cloves to make 1 tsp garlic paste 4. Add a pinch of salt 5. Mix well 6. Wrap the paste in a thin piece of cloth 7. Place the cloth on the infected ear Causes: • Eustachian tube inside the ear drains out the body fluids that are produce in the middle ear.
