Sinusitis is a condition wherein, the sinuses in the body get blocked with mucus and this results in inflammation. It is commonly known as Sinus while in Ayurveda, it is known as Pinas. Sinusitis is not restricted to any specific age group, however, asthma patients have more chances to suffer from cold and other throat infection.
According to Ayurveda, impaired kapha or water accumulates in the sinuses, which blocks the flow of air or vata. Impaired pitta or fire is the cause of swelling and irritation of the sinus region. Ama or the sticky waste substance produced by digestion also increases in the body.
