It is estimated that there are 15 billion doctors visits and more than 200,000 sinus surgical procedures done every year for sinusitis, and the rates continue to rise. With over 31 million adults suffering from sinusitis and no clear treatment that works,

many have turned to complementary and alternative medicine to find sinusitis remedies that actually work. From herbal therapy to homeopathy, there are lots of choices to make when researching sinusitis remedies.

Because of the lucrative venture that sinusitis can bring, many have created sinusitis remedies and procedures that truly don't work. I suggest sticking to the tried and true remedies that have been around for years, that in studies they constantly outperform conventional medicine, which in reality is just antibiotics, decongestants, pain relief medications and surgical procedures and some irrigation techniques.

First of all, you must find out the cause of your sinusitis. I can't emphasize this enough. Whether its fungal related or allergy mediated, the sinusitis remedy will be different.

But one thing remains in common; all sinusitis resolves around excessive mucus product. If you want fast sinusitis relief then focus on remedies that reduce mucous production and help gets rid of the mucous buildup that has already occurred. For this I really on Ayurvedic Medicine, a time tested and researched back philosophy.

The main focus on Ayurvedic medicine revolves around removing the excessive damp, wet features of your sinus passages by increasing blood flow and heat to the area (increasing Kapha). The tools they use are medicinal oils rubbed externally on the nasal passages and some internally. Medicinal oils take weeks to make and infuse all the medicinal properties of the herbs used in the process. Good medicinal oil for this consists of Flaxseed oil, Ginger, Eucalyptus and Guggal.

The oil increases the blood flow and heat to the sinus passageways and within minutes you will feel the excessive mucus build up drain. Most patients will need to be near a sink or trash to spit out or blow out the mucus drainage.

Steam inhalation can be combined with this to increase the changes but often this process doesn't work until the intial mucous plug has been drained. This is often the reason why many don't experience relief from steam or sinus irrigation with a netti pot.

The initial mucus plug makes it impossible to wash out the sinuses. You'll be amazed out how fabulous steam inhalation and netti pots work on keeping sinusitis away once you remove that initial mucus plug. I use steam and irrigation as a preventative, particularly with allergy patients.

Once this mucus breakup has occurred, focus on treating the cause of this buildup and you'll quickly overcome those sinusitis troubles.
