Bushes, shrubs, flowers, trees and grasses release their pollens into the air and if we are allergic to any of these we develop hayfever and inflammation of the sinus cavities in the forehead and cheek bones.

Sinusitis can be instigated by allergic reaction to cat fur, dog hair, horse hair, feathers, petrochemicals, cleaning agents, perfumes, dust and house dust mite.

Confusion with milk allergy symptoms can occur, ie congested  or runny nose and mucus build up in the throat and bronchials.

Test to discover the offending allergen, remove dairy products from the diet for twelve days and then reintroduce and observe symptoms.   Check for reactions when close to your pets.   Try replacing the feather filled continental quilt or pillow.   You may care to ask your Doctor to define your allergies via skin reaction testing on the inner arm.

In this  position of knowledge we can prevent sinusitis by using homoeopathic formulas for about six weeks before the prime sneezing season, taking small doses of the offending allergen desensitizes  the system and hopefully you wont suffer next season.

Taken all year round, Bee pollen, Garlic, Vitamin C, B5 and B6, help prevent sinusitis and hayfever.

To obtain relief during a current attack, immerse the hands in a bowl of hot water, as hot as you can take it.  Or prepare a cabbage poultice by rolling a cabbage leaf till pliable and strap it across the congested sinus area.

The herbs Horseradish, Fennel, Fenugreek and Mullein dissolve mucus that may have dried and become an obstructing plug in a sinus cavity.   If there is yellow refuse, a sign of infection, take Echinacea or Astragalus or Olive Leaf extract, Vitamin C and Garlic.

Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C and Calcium and Zinc all display anti-histamine properties.
