Sinusitis is a condition which affects the nasal passage areas of the body. It can feel like pain in your nose, cheekbones, and eye area. The intense pressure can be unpleasant at best, and will interfere with your day to day activities at worse. If you have this condition, you are not alone. At any time there are more than 30 million American people suffering with this condition. It’s considered an infection where the buildup of mucus can make you feel stuffy and miserable. Sometimes a common cold or flu virus can turn into sinusitis. People with immune deficiencies tend to develop it more than those with a healthy immune system.
What Kind of Infection Is it?
It’s considered a type of bacterial infection that sometimes can develop resistance to common antibiotics. This is especially troublesome if you get recurrent infections multiple times per year. Then you just feel like you can’t ever get well again because you are sick all the time.
The American Academy of Allergy Asthma, and Immunology advocates that you treat this condition with methods to help you breathe better. There are two types of sinusitis, acute and chronic. The acute version usually lasts less than four weeks, but mostly goes away after ten days. Chronic sinusitis last much longer. You are looking at suffering that last up to 12 weeks or more, sometimes despite medical treatment. That’s where you are going to look at alternative methods to feel better.
Look Into Salt Therapy
One of the best treatments you can look into is using a salt therapy spa like The Salt Suite. Our halotherapy treatments have been proven to treat the lingering symptoms of sinusitis. All you have to do is come into one of our very comfortable spa treatment rooms where the air is filled with salt particles, take a deep breath, and allow the salt to do its job.

This will help you feel like yourself again, so you aren’t as bothered by the pressure and pain the condition produces in your nasal cavities.
Common Facts About Sinusitis
People with allergies and asthma are more likely to get chronic sinusitis when they get a regular cold. This is due to the fact that their nasal passages are susceptible to inflammation. So not only will the salt treatment help your breathing issues from being constantly stuffed up, but it will improve other issues as well.
