What is Sinusitis?

There are hollow spaces between your eyes, behind your cheekbones, and in your forehead which are called sinuses. The mucus they produce keeps the inside of your nose moist. This moisture traps the dust, allergens, and pollutants and protects the head region from infections.

What is sinusitis according to Ayurveda?

In Ayurveda, sinusitis is called pinas. It results from the imbalance in the three doshas. Imbalance in all three doshas contributes to sinusitis manifestation. However, one specific dosha may dominate the pathogenesis. Accordingly, sinusitis can be of three primary types –
1. Vataj (due to vata imbalance)
2. Pittaj (due to pitta imbalance)
3. Kaphaj (due to kapha imbalance)
An imbalance in kapha dosha creates excess mucus and leads to blockages in the sinuses. As the sinuses fill up with impaired kapha (the water element), they hinder the free flow of air through the sinuses. Further, an imbalance of pitta (fire) leads to swelling and irritation in the sinuses
The symptoms of different types of sinusitis also differ according to the dominant dosha.
