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

See this is all becoz of the dryness of nose, keep hydration of the nose by giving good fresh fruits shakes, milk products, salads and avoid spicy food and salty things, and also avoid nose cleaning by blowing or by fingering.
