Sinus infection or sinus attack can be extremely exhausting and can impair one from performing one’s everyday routine. Ayurveda regards sinus infection or sinusitis to be caused by an imbalance in the Kapha and Vata doshas that leads to blockage of the sinus channels. This, in turn, leads to an imbalance in Pitta that gives on to sinus inflammation.

For ayurvedic treatment of sinusitis in Kerala for sinus attacks that last for a short time and go away, Ayurveda recommends steam inhalation which can be done at the comfort of your home. Steam inhalation involves inhaling the steam coming from boiling water for 10-15 minutes. Adding ingredients like ginger, tulsi, eucalyptus oil or other medicated herbs to the boiling water is very effective in overcoming sinus attacks as steam act as a decongestant and effectively relieves sinus pain.
