Effective Home Remedies For Sinus Pressure Relief

When the pain and discomfort of sinus pressure start to build up, you want relief fast. There are many choices at the drugstore for sinus pressure relief, but do they really work?

Everyone has experienced a stuffy head from time to time, and a decongestant medication may do the trick. But if you’re suffering from sinus pressure on a regular basis, using these products can do more harm than good. Rather than just treating symptoms with over-the-counter medications, wouldn’t you want to create long term relief?

Continual use of decongestants, nasal sprays or other medications can impair your body’s natural response to infection, leading to dependency rather than healing. Whether sinus pressure is a result of a virus, allergies, or pollutants, using antibiotics will only kill bacteria, not viruses, not to mention particulates in the air. Continued exposure to certain environmental factors can increase the chance of recurrent sinus infections overpowering even the most effective medications.

There are also side-effects that may occur with these products, such as nausea, insomnia, headache, increased heartbeat and dizziness, to name a few. Fortunately, there are many home remedies to help treat sinus pressure and promote healing. Eliminating exposure to environmental factors such as pollen, dander, smoke or perfumes is a great first step, when combined with a few simple treatments to cleanse, soothe and repair the damage done by recurrent infection.

Home Sinus Treatments

Just a little prevention and care can help you find long term relief from sinus pressure. In fact, soothing a sinus infection can be easily carried out at home with little more than hot water and a nice cozy place to lie down. Reserve a few minutes in the morning and evening to properly care for your sinuses with these soothing treatments:

* Hydrotherapy – hold your face in a warm, gentle shower for a few minutes at a time to loosen mucous and soothe swelling

* Neti Pot – rinsing sinuses with warm water can reduce swelling and remove mucous; see my article here on how to safely flush your sinuses

* Head Wrap – lay a very warm washcloth over your face, then wrap a warm dry towel over your face and head to trap heat. Relax for 15 minutes.

* Humidifier – keep the air moist and mucus production down by using a small humidifier in the rooms you spend the most time in – bedroom, office, etc…

* Pressure Pointsmassage your face with gentle, circular strokes around temples and cheekbones; using thumb and forefinger, squeeze either side of nose between the eyes for several seconds as needed

* Air Purification – invest in a high-quality air filtration system for the office, bedroom and any other area you spend a lot of time in to reduce exposure to environmental pollutants
