Acute sinusitis is most often caused by the common cold. Signs and symptoms may include a blocked and stuffy (congested) nose, which may block your sinuses and prevent drainage of mucus. Acute sinusitis is most often caused by the common cold, which is an infection with a virus. Vitamins and minerals — Colorful fruits and vegetables. Such as apricots, strawberries, red and green peppers, parsley, and broccoli — get high praise from the scientists working on sinus healers worldwide. They contain lots of vitamin C which is known to fend off colds, allergies, and sinus infections. Natural ingredients like Guduchi, Laxmi Vilas Rasa, Tribhuvan Kriti Rasa, etc. have tremendous benefits in case of both acute and chronic Sinusitis.

Below are a few Ayurvedic elements that have been proven to relieve Sinusitis:


Guduchi is useful in the treatment of allergic rhinitis, an allergic condition characterized by sneezing, mucus discharge from the nose, sinus congestion, and related symptoms. Guduchi (in Sanskrit) (Giloy in Hindi) (Tinospora Cordyfolia) also known as Amrita is the best immune booster in Ayurved. It is a creeper and is even more effective if it grows on a Neem tree. Its vine is dried and powdered. It is sold in the markets as pieces of dried stem, powder, Ghansattva, extract, tablets and capsules.

Apart from that, Guduchi is a febrifuge and lowers blood sugars along with a whole range of other health benefits. Moreover, it is a cooling herb.  The herb is used in certain combinations with other herbs to boost the immune system. The combinations would vary depending on the problem.

For colds/ frequent colds, it is best taken with Tulsi, though there are other combinations as well even without the use of Guduchi.


Laxmi Vilas Rasa: 

Laxmi Vilas Rasa is the best Ayurvedic medicine especially advised for cough and cold, coryza, Sinusitis, and other related diseases.

Tribhuvan Kirti Rasa: 

Ayurvedic Tribhuvan Kirti Rasa is very effective in the treatment of cough, coryza, Bronchitis, Tonsillitis, Sinusitis, Influenza, and all type of fever.


Yashtimadhu oil is recommended as a nasal drop for relieving chronic colds, nose-block, Sinusitis, headache, and associated symptoms.



Kalonji oil is good in curing cough and cold. It is also good for those who are suffering from Sinusitis.




Tulsi acts as a natural decongestant and melts down the phlegm collected in the mucous membrane. Which is the main reason behind Sinusitis and its associated symptoms.



The active ingredient in turmeric, known as curcumin, helps to heal the sinus cavity and clear the airways. Since sinus infections are caused by nasal inflammation. Turmeric possesses anti-inflammatory properties, the spice can be an effective solution for Sinusitis.


Taking the above ingredients in therapeutic quantities on a regular basis can prevent and combat Sinusitis.
