Everyone deals with sinus pressure at some point in their lives, and no one likes it.
To keep sinus cavities healthy, they must be constantly ventilated with free moving air. If air is restricted — no breathing airflow — mucus stagnates and the sinuses can become a breeding ground for harmful bacteria and viruses, and as a consequence sinus pressure to beat the band.
The question is: How can we keep air flowing and make ourselves feel better when we have sinus pressure, and how can we prevent sinuses from swelling? Here are a few suggestions:
1 – SALINE SOLUTION NASAL RINSING
Think of this like washing your face, except with nasal rinsing once daily is more than adequate.
This a time honored and proven technique for nasal pressure relief and works by flushing out your nasal passages to relieve the daily buildup of allergens, irritants and air pollutants particulates. Plus, when your nasal passages are cleaned, the mucosal layer inside your nose is restored to healthy function. When it’s healthy, it cleans the air that you breathe more thoroughly, which improves your sinus health.
While funky and a little difficult to get used to, if used in conjunction with Sinus Cones it will make your nasal airways feel clean and clear and greatly increase the health of your sinus cavities.
2 – THE VALSALVA MANEUVER
Aka unplug your ears using pressure. Dr. M. Lee Williams describes the maneuver in his book ‘The Sinusitis Help Book’. All you do is pinch your nose, swallow, and then blow into the nose without letting go. You should feel your ears pop. Don’t blow forcefully, gentle pressure is fine.
3 – MASSAGING CERTAIN ACUPRESSURE POINTS AROUND YOUR EYES
Acupressure points around your eyes can swiftly ease facial pain, says Susan Padberg, M.D., a medical acupuncturist in Madison, Wisconsin. Firmly and gently press your index fingers above the center of each eyebrow or between them. Massage for 10 to 15 seconds and repeat as needed. This technique when used in tandem with Sinus Cones can be helpful.
4 – WEAR TWO SINUS CONES SO THAT YOU CAN BREATHE LIKE CRAZY
By opening up the nasal passages, these little breathing aids maximize nasal airflow to help drain congestion from your nose and clear sinuses better naturally. It’s messy so keep plenty of facial tissues nearby so you can relieve the sinus pressure by removing the built up congestion from your nasal airways.
5 – TAKE A STEAMY SHOWER WITH SINUS CONES
Steam can help moisturize and loosen nasal mucous and nasal congestion. Make your steam-therapy work even better, wear Sinus Cones in the shower and squeeze a couple of drops of lavender or peppermint oil in the water, tip your head down and exhale through your nose. You’ll clear out your nasal passages and be surprised how much better you feel and how much more easily you’ll be able to breathe!
While it’s unpleasant to talk about, sometimes our sinuses just aren’t big enough to drain all the mucus we produce, especially at night; by wearing Sinus Cones during sleep, nasal airflow is increased to help keep sinuses clear and draining as nature intended.
[IN FACT, THE SIZE OF THE SINUS CAVITIES IS THE FIRST FEATURE OF A HUMAN SKULL THAT ANTHROPOLOGISTS MEASURE TO DETERMINE THE AGE OF THE SKULL. ANCIENT HUMANS HAD LARGER SINUSES THAN WE DO NOW. SINUS CAVITIES ARE BECOMING SMALLER AND SMALLER IN MODERN MAN.]
That’s why products like Sinus Cones are so helpful. They help relieve sinus pressure by opening your nasal passages to maximize nasal airflow, AND if used at the first sign of congestion can help prevent sinus pressure by helping maintain airflow in your nose!
