    Hi Puni,


    I also used to get sinus headaches a lot. But now I am doing alternate nose
    breathing exercises(pranayama) and it reduced. I am not using any sinus
    decongestants any more.
    There is a web site where I follow this technique.
    Know Yoga : HomePage

    Hope this helps:)

    hi everyone,

    sinus headache is different from migrane. but yoga can help in both migrane and sinus headache. you cantry for alternate nose breathing as suggested by madhu11.

    This is every effective method to remedy the both. Practice pranayama for 10 to 15 min daily and you will see the change yourself.

    The other option is jala neti meand cleansing nosetrils by passing water through the passage. Jala neti and breathing techniques can be:goodidea: .

    This is done by using a neti pot exclusively designed for this practice. The technique to how to use the neti pot are also provided with it.

    You cab buy it from any yoga products selling site. It has a very good market overseas.

    hope this will help.

    Hello punitha

    i recently saw in oprah show that you can try using neti pot which they are claiming to be effective, so just give it a try. however dont use cold water. you have to use warm salt water. please check for details in oprah.com i hope u will get more details there.

    bye

    Hi....

    If you like to buy the neti pot its available in various shop sites on net. and they are also good quality pots. Some sites also provide the salt packets with the pot and also an instruction booklet on how to use the neti pot.

    You can easily learn the directions of using it. Neti has shown the good results in treating sinus and headaches.

    Neti is done with water to clean the nasal passage. This prevents you form nasal infection and allergies that usually cause sinus.

    You can search on net for the websites selling neti pots.

    bye
