Mrunalini caps for Sinusitis.
Mrunalini capsules are the ultimate solution to Sinusitis problems. Sinuses are air spaces in the skull, two frontal ones located in the forehead above the eyes and 2 maxillary sinuses, one inside each cheek bone, all lined by mucous membranes. When these sinuses get inflamed due to allergic reactions and or fungal or bacterial infections, Sinusitis (sinus infection or rhinosinusitis) results. Due to sinusitis, facial pain/pressure, headache, nasal congestion, foul smelling nasal discharge (usually green in color and may contain pus and/or blood), cough, fever and bad breath results. In cases of coughing, it is often worse at night.
Symptoms of sinusitis include, redness in the nose, swelling of the nasal tissues, running nose, greenish nasal discharge, nasal congestion, tenderness of the face (particularly under the eyes or at the bridge of the nose), headache, toothache which intensifies when the head is tilted forward, coughing, fever and bad breath.
Prolonged sinusitis may lead to infection of eye socket ( may result in the loss of sight and severe illness), infection of the bones (osteomyelitis) of the forehead and other facial bones, infection of the brain by the invasion of anaerobic bacteria through the bones or blood vessels, abscesses, meningitis and other life-threatening conditions. Eventually the patient may experience mild personality changes, headache, altered consciousness, visual problems, seizures, coma and possibly death.
Sinusitis is treated by taking rest, drinking enough water to thin the mucous, steaming and gargling. When the bacterial infection of the sinuses are proved, they are treated with antibiotics. Because the sinuses are deep-seated in the bones, treatments may last from 3 to 28 days, which may lead to antibiotic resistance. Using decongestant nasal sprays containing oxymetazoline and antihistamines is another way of treatment. Sprays are used for 3-4 days only, because overuse of topical nasal decongestants can result in a dependent condition in which the nasal passages swell shut, called rebound phenomenon. Nasal sprays with corticosteroids also are used. For chronic or recurring sinusitis, nasal surgery is recommended though the advantages of this option are not clear.
Sinusitis is a major common health problem all over the world. Even in advanced countries like USA it afflicts 31 million or more people. People suffering from allergies, asthma, structural blockages in the nose or sinuses, or with weak immune systems are at greater risk of sinus diseases.
Mrunalini is a product formulated after a series of trials and errors. It contains two well-known plants of Ayurveda, “Parpatakah” (Hedyotis corymbosa) and “Sahadevi” (Vernonia cinerea) which are used for all kinds of fevers in combination with “Mari” (Piper nigrum) which is another drug used against fevers and cough. All these three plants exhibit antipyretic, analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties and therefore can rectify all the problems associated with sinusitis.
