In many cases, people that suffer from viruses such as colds and flu, come down with a secondary bacterial infection, such as a sinus infection. Chinese medicine treats sinus infections. When the nasal mucosa becomes inflamed, sinus drainage becomes blocked and infection can occur. There are natural herbs that open up the obstructed nasal cavity and alleviate pressure in the sinuses. Other accompanying symptoms of sinus infections are headaches, toothaches and the bright green nasal discharge that is often the telltale sign associated with sinus infections, all of which can be eradicated with herbs.
The most common western approach to treating sinus infections is through antibiotic use; however, antibiotics present issues of their own, such as antibiotic resistance. Other side effects due to overuse of antibiotics include diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, fungal infections of the mouth, digestive tract and vagina, and fatigue. Western medicine usually prescribes antibiotics to do away with bacterial infections.
