Tips for quick Sinus Relief

Women often have a problem with sinus. But the saving grace is that home remedies very often cure the problem.An early sign of sinusitis requires immediate attention to reduce nasal congestion.

*A humidifier in your bedroom will release moisture in the atmosphere; this will reduce mucous drainage and promote nasal relief while sleeping.
*Clean your humidifier frequently to prevent contamination and the spread of fungi.*Inhaling steam, regularly, will help relieve the drainage secretion.*The body requires plenty of liquids, to increase its moisture levels, and rest and relaxation. Drink a lot of fluids, such as water, vitamin-rich fruit drinks etc.*Try some honey (a natural antiseptic) and lemon (a natural source of Vitamin C) dissolved in hot water or herbal and fruit tea as an alternative to normal tea.
*Avoid drinks that contain caffeine, such as, coffee, tea, cola and other fizzy drinks as these are diuretics, which could cause further dehydration.
*Eat healthy food, such as fruits and vegetables.
*Chicken soup is believed to be a good food for colds - it relieves infections of the upper respiratory tract.
*Keep the room temperature comfortably warm and open the bedroom window a little so fresh air can circulate.
*Humidity may help ease cough and congestion. A vaporiser can be used to bring some relief or better still, place a bowl of water near the radiator in your bedroom.
*Get as much rest as you can. If you are well enough to go into work, make sure you have early nights.
*If you are suffering from a blocked nose, prop yourself up in bed with pillows to help ease your breathing at night
