YOGA POSES TO ALLEVIATE SINUSITIS – Yoga pose to relieve your symptoms


Sinusitis is a commonly appearing issue caused by an inflamed infection in the sinus. Anything from winter-cold, allergic or nasal abscess can also be the root cause of this issue which affects breathing and causes headaches. Medicines used to treat sinusitis only provide temporary relief, which causes an addiction to those medicines. To avoid these complications, yoga is a great and effective alternative for treating this common issue.

Yoga provides relief not only from sinusitis but also from its relative problems, such as Migraine and Blocked Nose. Also, doing select yoga poses relaxes the muscles of the lower part of the nose which usually gets swollen due to sinusitis. Let’s look at some poses that can be beneficial in easing Sinusitis.
