Sinusitis is another common condition that homeopathy may have an alternative remedy for. Homeopathy remedies for sinusitis vary since there can also be different types of sinusitis. There are eight sinuses in the skull. The condition may affect any part of them which may also present different symptoms. In homeopathic practice, the type of symptoms displayed plays a big role in determining the type of homeopathic remedy used.
Sinusitis is usually the result of a lingering cold or allergy. This can block the proper nasal drainage that may bring about a variety of symptoms such as inflammation and swelling in the sinuses. The blockages may also lead to developing a breeding ground where infection may arise. Complications may also arise if the sinusitis is left untreated for a long time. In homeopathy, there are certain cases where self-treatment may be allowed, even for the different cases of sinusitis. Here are some of the homeopathic remedies provided for treating sinusitis. But bear in mind that the use of the following substances are prepared as extreme dilutions so as not to contain the usual harmful effects that some of these substances may be known to have.
