I get frequent cold and sore throat when I am sitting under fan or in AC room. Advice?
Best thing is to avoid ac all together which is not practical. Therefore avoid sitting directly in front of the duct. Please see that regular servicing of ac is done. See that the temperature is not below 25 to 27 degrees.

Yes you are right this two are connected. From your duration of disease and symptoms it looks like you might be suffering from ch. Rhinosinusitis. If you have already used medications and not improving then we should go for ct scan of nose & pns. So please get it done.

Hi, well, the cause behind all your issues seems to be sinusitis that needs to be tackled in the first place. Sinusitis basically stems from a faulty diet/ lifestyle which you shall require streamlining going forward. Given that your pain is increasingly intolerable and condition worsening with new issues surfacing, I would advise you first to consult an ent specialist and start medical treatment as advised. Simultaneously, however, following are a few things you need to take care of on a day to day basis - (a) avoid cold, hot, spicy drinks & foods (b) restrict tea, coffee, carbonated beverages et al. (c) avoid pollution, smoke, dusty areas (d) avoid direct blast of hot/ cold air. (e) follow regular lifestyle with adequate room for relaxation/ de-stressing (f) have a balanced diet, drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water daily and ensure that the episodes of acidity/ indigestion are kept to a minimum (g) consume fruits/ vegetables rich in vit a & c. (h) amongst vegetables, onion, garlic, bitter gourd, carrot, beetroot, spinach et al help in this condition. Amla helps improve immunity and protects against infections. (i) do luke warm saline gargling at least thrice daily. (j) inhale plain steam/ medicated vapors (herbal). (k) saline nasal spray 2 to 3 times daily helps clear the nasal passage & drain the mucous/ sinus out. (l) yogasanas & pranayams like anulom vilom help in this condition (s) hope this helps. You may still connect with me in private to discuss and come up with a naturopathic treatment plan that suits you in particular and gives you a long lasting relief from your chronic issues.
