Updated from 15th September, 2013. Wow! This is an old post and almost of the time when I was about to get married. Nostalgic… Anyways, I found a new comment on this post and how the reader mentioned this was a helpful piece of information and she faced the same issue of sinus attack due to deficiency of vitamin D. Hope you find it useful as well.
After like a long time, I am doing a health post. All the credit goes to my friend who had suffered from severe sinus issues for the past 10 days and has embarked on a new research to find out the reason and today she just happened to stumble on this piece of information!
So, what she says is something like this. Vitamin D deficiency is perhaps the reason for most of the respiratory issues, PCOD and even infertility. But, today we are going to focus on sinusitis. (Source)
Basically, any respiratory issue gets inherently triggered by Vitamin D deficiency like asthma, sinus, etc. Also, the surgeries prescribed for sinus issues do no good. What happens is that when infection gets triggered, the sinus cavities get filled and blocked and they are not able to drain the mucus.
Also, if you are prescribed antibiotics, please remember that they are not the preferred solution. Why? Because one is never sure what triggered the infection – bacteria, virus or if its a fungal infection. If the mucus is tested, a proper treatment can be given.
But, when a generic treatment is done, the antibiotics prescribed are extremely strong in dosage and they do more harm to the body than good. So, avoid taking antibiotics as and when you can. Also, homeopathic treatment has been known to do a bit of good so you might wanna try it out.
What to do when you have an attack of Sinus?
- Steam Inhalation
- Oil Pulling
Did you know that sinus is linked to Vitamin D deficiency?
Sinus is a practically un-treatable lifestyle issue one has to live with. It can only be controlled through good lifestyle practices and habits. So, next time before popping a pill for your migraine, try meditation and controlling the intake of cold food and drinks. That helps to a lot of extent. I prefer steam inhalation. And, I have also observed nasal drops to help with sinus. May be you could give it a try!
