What is sinusitis and what are its causes and symptoms?
Sinusitis is an inflammation that affects the bone cavities around the eyes, cheekbones and nose. According to Dr. Marcelo Sampaio, otolaryngologist, the diagnosis can present two types of sinusitis:
• acute sinusitis: when symptoms last up to 4 weeks and pain is predominant in the sinuses;
• chronic: when symptoms last up to 3 months, even with the treatment being carried out properly.
Usually, what causes sinusitis are infectious agents such as fungi, viruses and bacteria. However, there are other factors that can contribute to sinusitis. The main ones are:
• colds and flu;
• allergic rhinitis;
• environment pollution;
• changes in altitude.
Sinusitis also has some symptoms that need to be noted and presented to the doctor at the time of consultation. Among the main ones, I can highlight:
• pressure on the face;
• nasal obstruction;
• loss of appetite;
• nasal discharge with pain;
• muscle aches.
What to do to improve sinusitis?
I cannot fail to mention the importance of a balanced, healthy and nutrient-rich diet. In addition, consuming warm meals, such as soups and broths, is an excellent option for those who want to improve their sinusitis, as it helps to unclog the nasal canal and, therefore, reduce pain and irritation of the mucosa in the nose region.
The consumption of water is also essential, as this liquid helps to moisturize the sinuses in a natural way. So, drinking tea is a great option, as it is a hot drink and very moisturizing.
How can supplementation help?
Food supplementation can also help to improve sinusitis. One of the solutions is Imono Suport, a natural product based on edible and medicinal mushrooms, developed by HN FOOD. The supplement helps to strengthen the body’s immunity, helping to prevent sinusitis and several other health problems.
Although sinusitis affects a significant percentage of the population, it is possible to prevent and treat it. Thus, those who have sinusitis can improve their quality of life and, taking the necessary preventive care, the chances of developing the condition are considerably reduced.
