Sinusitis

Sinusitis, often accompanying a cold or flu, manifests as a dull pain in the head and face, particularly in the areas of the cheeks, forehead, and sinus cavities. It’s crucial to take this condition seriously because untreated sinusitis can lead to severe complications such as middle ear or bronchial infections, pneumonia, and damage to the eyes, bones, and brain.

Sinusitis: How to identify it

Sinusitis, also known as rhinosinusitis, is a condition marked by the inflammation of the mucous membrane lining the paranasal sinuses. It frequently occurs alongside inflammation of the nasal mucosa, leading to rhinosinusitis. Typically, it’s caused by bacterial or viral infections, but it can have other origins, including dental infections, allergic rhinitis, head injuries, excessive use of specific medications, or congenital defects.

Sinusitis results in the inflammation of the nasal mucosa and adjacent sinus cavities, causing swelling and damage. This situation provides an ideal environment for the growth of harmful bacteria and subsequently leads to the production of purulent mucus. Due to the swelling of the mucous membranes, this mucus cannot drain properly, leading to the blockage of the sinuses and causing increased pressure and pain. A common symptom is worsened pain when bending forward.

If the prescribed treatment does not yield results, an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialist may consider performing a puncture on the affected sinus. In such cases, the sinus is first locally anesthetized, and then a specialized instrument is used to facilitate the drainage of mucus from the blocked sinuses.

Sinusitis symptoms

  • headache
  • jaw, cheek and toothache
  • temperature to fever
  • weakness, fatigue

How does salt therapy help with sinusitis

To prevent issues, it’s essential to properly treat common colds and flu. Halotherapy, can also be beneficial, offering numerous advantages in alleviating sinusitis symptoms.

Inhaled salt micro-particles aid in dissolving accumulated mucus in the respiratory passages. This makes the mucus less viscous and easier to expel from the respiratory tract, improving its permeability.

Thanks to its natural anti-inflammatory properties, salt reduces inflammatory processes in the respiratory tract. This way, it reduces swelling in the respiratory passages, improves airway permeability, and facilitates breathing.

The antibacterial properties of salt help in killing harmful bacteria, viruses, and allergens in the respiratory system, which cause inflammations and increased mucus production. This prevents further infection development.

Salt micro-particles effectively dissolve accumulated mucus in the nose, nasopharynx, and blocked sinuses, where bacteria can proliferate uncontrollably. This eases mucus drainage from the body and clears blocked sinuses. Without excess mucus, bacterial growth diminishes, alleviating inflammation and gradually relieving the associated pain.

Halotherapy is also an excellent means of strengthening immunity, as it promotes the production of white blood cells, which play a crucial role in the body’s defense against infections and diseases.
