The visible symptoms of sinus is swelling, pain, inflammation and infection. In case of cold, sore throat, strep throat also swelling is there but to some extent less then it is visible in sinus.
Sinus, cold and sore throat usually happen in the following situations –
- Change of season
- drinking lot of water after exercises
- when u get up in the morning
- after swimming
- after having first sex
- first time smoking etc
- During winters our body stores less water. This is evident from loss of water from body evident from frequent urination.
- Normally the body adjusts the water stored in the body automatically. But due to tea, coffee, soft drinks, air conditioning, heating, drinking water with meals or shortly after meals, the systems responsible for controlling the water level in the body stops working properly.
- The same thing happens after swimming the body is heated up and cooled at the same time. If a person allows sweating after a swimming session and does not drink water or does not take a shower in cold water sore throat may not happen.
- After having first sex, kissing, first time smoking people tend to either overeat, drink lot of water and sleep immediately so sinus or other respiratory problems start.
I used to answer on cold and cough, sinus questions on Yahoo Answers before my account was deleted
- Lot of people in their questions mentioned that they were advised about eating ice cream to get rid of the sinus or sore throat. Yes sudden eating of the ice cream may force the body’s system to get up and start working. But that happens only in less then 10% cases. And if that does not happen the sore throat or sinus is aggravated.
- The easier way out is to allow body to sweat for 1 or 2 hour by increasing the body temperature but not drinking water or other fluids for may be 1 hour after the thing that caused sore throat or cold and cough.
The Cure – Swelling
If on average you drink 6 to 8 cups of water and other fluids taken together, in 24 hours you may try the following-
- The easy way to control swelling is to give up water and all other liquids for 24 hours. In 24 hours there will be no significant dehydration to cause organ failure. But to be double sure one can stay indoors for 24 hours. This helps in lot of other ailments. One can do it when one is in indoors and does not have a condition. It improves the immune system. It ensures that body’s control systems work properly.
- In 24 hours the reduction in the fluids will be about 1.5 to 2 litres or about 20% of the total body fluid of a normal adult.
- Never the swelling due to sinus or cold and cough is more than 20% of the body volume.
- During this period of 24 hours the lose of water from the body does not reduce significantly to offset reduced water intake.
- The reduction in loss of body water thru urine or sweating starts after 24 hours in most of people.
- The reduction in total body fluids will help reduce swelling due to sinus.
If you drink very less water and other fluids first drink 50 ml of water every 30 minutes for 2-3 days and then try the first option of giving up water for 24 hours.
- The reduced swelling will give immediate relief from pain and inflammation. It will make it much more easier to eliminate the cough thru nose without any pain.
- That will also improve the blood acid levels and minerals. This forces changes at the cell level as well. Blood acid levels are the first line of defense against the infections. So infection will also be taken care of.
- So swelling gone, pain gone, cough moving out, infections taken care of. Now what remains in the body for the next change of season time. Obviously nothing.
So it has already given u long term relief from sinus. But in some cases one may get sinus during next change of season and may have to do this again. With a little practice the period of dehydration can be increased to 48 hours. That will give complete relief from chronic sinus. This will also improve the immunity of the body in general. See AIDS section for this. The 48 hours restrictions on water will remove old blue prints of the bacteria and viruses from the body and provide much needed boost to our immune system.
The reason is during change of season the body must adjust the water that is stored in the body. Due to some cell level changes the ability of the body to bring those changes is lost. But after 2-3 seasons that ability of the body will be restored and there will be complete relief from sinus.
There is one more thing that will ensure that u never get sinus or cold again in your life.
Those who drink 2-3 glasses of water in 24 hours for a long time and that too with meals, should not try the above. They should first drink 8 to 10 glasses of water for 3-4 days to improve their hydration levels of the body. After 3-4 days they can try to give up water and all other fluids for 24 hours.
Later drink 1 glass of water 1 hour before each meal. No other water or liquids on 4-5 days in a week. So on these days you do not exceed 3 glasses of water in 24 hours.
On rest 2-3 days do whatever u feel like.
The above works for sinus, cold, running nose, sore throat and strep throat, when the throat is hurting, All types of headache and lot of other conditions.
It works for all digestive problems as well. The digestive problems that it cures are – IBS, constipation, stomach cramps, GERD, Acid reflux etc. Due to restrictions on length of answer I am not giving the reasons for the same.
Logically it should cure asthma as well. But one has to be more cautious while trying this out for asthma cure. One may start with 12 hour water fast period. I do not have experience on this. But the logic on which the theory is built up supports it.
