A sinus problem is caused by excess of kapha dosha, according to Vasant Lad, B.A.M.S., M.A.Sc., director of the Ayurvedic doshas. He suggests the following remedy for sever and painful bout of sinus congestion. The remedy is rather unpleasant, says Dr. Lad, but it works - fast."USE a garlic press to squeeze fresh garlic juice, then put the juice into an eyedropper," he says.
"Put a few drops into your nostrils and keep your head back so that the juice stay inside your nose for about five minutes." Then, says Dr. Lad, sit up and let the garlic juice drain out onto a handkerchief or a tissue.
He says your sinuses should be quite clear. Use this remedy no more than once a day when needed for sinus congestion, according to Dr. Lad: during a severe sinus attack, he says it may be repeated up to three times a day - morning, afternoon and evening.
