Dear user its senile hearing loss its age related irreversible changes in the body so full recovery is quiet very difficult but not impossible. At the most you can use Kali mur 3x thrice a week as of now. And your father needs to develop habit to try hearing without hearing aid machine its quiet hard but once he develops habit then he will slowly gain hearing very gradually. Also initially it will be very distressing developing such but it will be for his good.

Sinusitis: Controlling it without Surgery

Sinusitis: Controlling it without Surgery

The inflammation of the cavities around nasal passage is known as sinusitis. When the cavities are full of fluid, germs attach themselves to the fluids, which give rise to infections. Some of the causes of sinusitis are common colds, allergic rhinitis problem, nasal polyps and deviated septum. You can also learn about common ear infections.

There are 4 different types of sinusitis:

  1. Acute sinusitis: It remains for about 4 weeks or less. It is usually characterized by a runny nose and pain in the face which will stay for at least 10 to 14 days.
  2. Sub acute sinusitis: It is almost like the acute sinusitis but stays longer for about 4 to 8 weeks.
  3. Chronic sinusitis: The inflammation in this case lasts about 8 weeks, sometimes longer than that.
  4. Recurrent sinusitis: In this, the sinusitis attack keeps occurring all through the year.

At times, to clear up the blocked sinuses, a surgery is mandatory. This can be painful hence many are hesitant to go through with a surgery. If you want to control sinusitis so that it doesn't reach the limit where you have to go through a surgery, here are some tips of what you might be able to do regularly to clear your chances of controlling this:

  1. Take steam: This is the most common and easy way to control sinusitis. The steam helps to break down the excess mucus in the nasal passage and also reduces the inflammation of the sinuses. All you need is water. Heat it up to the required temperature and then inhale the steam. You will get a lot of relief if you do this regularly.
  2. Nasal Irrigation: This is basically the process of flushing the infected and stale mucus out of the nasal cavity. Take a liter of sterile water, mix one tablespoon of kosher salt and baking soda each. Then with the help of a syringe or a neti pot, wash your nostrils with the solution. The mucus will start coming out and your nasal cavity will clear out.
  3. Use warm washcloth: Lie down and place a warm washcloth (a washcloth dipped in warm water and wringed) on your forehead and nose region. The warmth from the washcloth will break down the mucus and clear the congestion.

Sinusitis - How To Cure It Naturally?

Sinusitis - How To Cure It Naturally?

Sinusitis is an irritation or swelling of the tissue covering the sinuses. Healthy sinuses are loaded with air. But there are times when they get blocked and loaded with fluid. In such cases, germs can develop and cause an infection. Due to this infection, your nose gets heavily blocked along with you sinuses and might make it difficult for you to breathe.

Conditions that can bring about sinus blockage include the following:

  1. Common cold
  2. Allergic rhinitis (swelling of the lining around the nose) 
  3. Little developments or growths in the covering of the nose called nasal polyps 
  4. A deviated septum (a shift in the nasal cavity)

Here are some of the ways you can get rid of sinusitis naturally:

  1. Soups and warm water: Drink warm water, soup or broth, and hot tea. These liquids will disperse bodily fluids and drain it from the disturbed sinuses. 
  2. Turmeric/Ginger root: Turmeric root is an excellent fragrant spice found in most Indian and Middle Eastern dishes. Turmeric not only contains the regular calming and anti-inflammatory curcumin, it is also an antioxidant. When it is mixed with hot ginger ale and blended with hot tea, this mixture can remove excess fluid from the clogged nasal sections, ease sinus pressure and make you feel better. 
  3. Spicy food: Spicy ingredients such as mustard, hot peppers, curry, horseradish, and masala in one’s food may help in clearing severely blocked sinuses. In case you like spices, think about including some hot flavours to your food to open your nasal entries.
  4. Apply warm packs: You can use a warm pack to keep the nasal tissues damp. Also, fill a round bowl or pot with steaming water and place your face over it with a towel around your head to inhale the steam in. This will open up your sinuses and make an easy path for fluid drainage. 
  5. Take a steam: High temperature water vapour can saturate the sinuses. Sprinkle a couple drops of eucalyptus in the shower or bath and steam up your bathroom. A hot shower can also relax the bodily fluid as well as the mucus and debris that are stuck inside your nose. 
  6. Apple cider vinegar: Apple cider vinegar is not only powerful in disposing off sinus issues; it can also be used for different skin and hair issues. What it does essentially for sinus infection is that it clears up the nose so that the bodily fluid can be removed quickly. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

When I sleep my ear pops. When I am in the shower my ear doesn't stop popping. I also regurley get Tooth ache and sore throats. Are they all linked? And why is it happening.

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS
ENT Specialist, Delhi
This can be due to wax or fluid in the ear behind the ear drum/tympanic membrane that can be due to recurrent sore throat bcz of blockage of eustachian tube that equalizes pressure on both side of ear drum.Do warm saline gargles and steam inhalation 2 times a day along with an antibiotic course during sore throat.

This is called gustatory rhinitis in which eating spicy and hot food cause watery discharge from nose. Treatment for nondiabetec person is avoiding triggering factors like hot and spicy food. Stop smoking if you do. Do not clean your tongue vigorously avoid metal tongue cleaners, avoid strong tested toothpaste.

We are soul a part of the Eternal soul/the almighty GOD......we came here to play our roles that so simple.... However I suggest you enjoy life which is very colourful and beautiful....

The main smelling centre in brain needs input from a special lining present in the roof of the nose. Anything obstructing this pathway can lead to this condition. Your nose needs detailed clinical examination. Cannot comment without examining your nose.

Gargling with warm salt water is an effective way to treat a sore throat. Salt can even help kill the bacteria or virus causing pharyngitis. 1. Mix three teaspoons of salt (preferably sea salt) in two cups of warm water. 2. Gargle with this solution. Do not swallow it. Spit the water out after gargling. 3. Do this several times daily for one to two days.
