Sinuses and nostrils play an important role in our health and are often overlooked, for instance the common cold is the first stage of a breakdown in our immune system.
|The nasal cavity sits below the brain and when we breathe, 'Prana' (life force) is absorbed short term via the breath, and here takes place it's immediate absorption to the brain and senses. This is before the air is taken into the lungs, hence the importance of the sinuses.
Difficulties with the sinuses can have a detrimental effect upon our health and senses. If the nose is clogged and the mucus membrane is too wet or too dry we lose our sense of smell, this can also lead to losing our sense of hearing, earache and uncomfortable pressure in our head. If this impairment gets close to the auditory canal of the ear even our sense of balance will be affected resulting in nausea and dizziness etc.
The eyes are also situated above the nasal cavity and the sinuses behind the eyes which are all connected in the process of seeing. If the sinuses behind the eyes are affected there may be visual problems, sensitivity to light, headaches, or red itchy inflamed eyes.
The sense of taste is rooted in the tongue and is also communicated via the palate. Both are below the nasal cavity, so when the nasal passages are blocked there will be a lack of taste and appetite.
When the head is congested and the nasal passages are blocked, thinking is unclear, the brain becomes dull, and memory can be affected Indeed, the brain itself can become stagnant.
