Experience Overview

Ayurveda for Sinusitis

Sinusitis is swelling caused by the infection of the sinuses. It is generally occurred due to bacterial (germ) infection. Sometimes, viruses and fungi causes it. People with weak immune systems are more affected by bacterial or fungal sinus infection.

Sinusitis is an infection to the air cavities within the passages of the nose. It can be caused by infection, allergies, and chemical or particulate irritation of the sinuses.

The sinuses are four paired cavities in the head called as “Paranasal Sinuses”, which are connected by narrow passages. The sinuses make thin mucus that drains out of the passages of the nose. This drainage helps to keep the nose clean and free of bacteria. These cavities are located at:

  • Within the bony structure of the cheeks
  • Behind the forehead and eyebrows
  • On either side of the bridge of the nose
  • Behind the nose directly in front of the brain

Some people have physical body defects that leads to sinus infection. The most common of these defects are:

Abnormality of the bony partition between the two nasal passages

Nasal polyps – There is a growth in nasal passage that contain mucus

Narrow sinus openings

People with these defects regularly suffer from chronic sinus infections.

Sinusitis Causes

Sinusitis can occur from various factors, but every time, it results from fluid becoming trapped in the sinuses. This results in the growth of germs.


In adults, most of the sinusitis cases result from a virus


In adults, out of 10 cases at least 1 case is caused by bacteria


Chemicals or irritants in the air can cause a build-up of mucus


As in allergic fungal sinusitis (AFS), the sinuses either react to fungi in the air or they are invaded by fungi, as in chronic indolent sinusitis.
