Sinus is an air-filled cavity located in a dense part of the skull. Sinuses are joined systems of hollow cavities also located in the skull. Sinuses reduce the weight of the skull. The four pairs of sinus cavities are:

  • The frontal sinuses, positioned in the low-center of the forehead.
  • The ethmoid sinuses, positioned between the eyes, at the nasal bridge.
  • The sphenoid sinuses, in bones positioned behind the nasal cavity.
  • The maxillary sinuses (the largest), positioned behind the cheekbones.

The largest sinus cavities (maxillary sinuses), are about an inch from one side to another. The other sinus cavities are much smaller.

The lining of the sinuses is made up of mucous-secreting cells called mucosa. A thin layer of mucus resides in the normally empty sinuses.

There are ridges inside the nose called turbinates. Theses ridges usually help to humidify and filter the air that enters the nose. Small passages in the bone called ostia allow air to enter the sinuses. If blocked, air is not able to enter the sinus and mucous is not be able to drain out.

Sinus Problems

Sinus Problems-- These disorders include sinus headaches, sinusitis, congestion and other related problems. In Oriental Medicine it has long been understood that there is an energetic connection between the colon and the respiratory tract. Often clearing the colon begins to resolve the respiratory issues including colds, sinus issues and other such disorders.
