Natural remedies for ‘sinus’ problems

Question: I seem to have a sinus problem that comes & goes often. Aside from the nose spray that is prescribed by doctors, are there any natural remedies that can help?

Answer: Using a seawater spray will help with natural decongestion. The Indians use a neti pot with salt water to achieve basically the same effect. The other natural remedy is to identify the underlying allergen and to avoid the allergen. In Singapore, this is most commonly due to dustmite allergy. Dustmite proof covers and anti-dustmite sprays can be used to minimise exposure to dustmites. Finally dustmites can also be used for immunotherapy to desensitise patients to dustmites – that is the ultimate ‘natural’ remedy!
