Flush out toxins. Drink lots of hot water. Ayurveda is more specific. According to this ancient healing system, hot water, is easier for the body to absorb than cold water. It pacifies the dry, cold vata dosha with its hot, hydrating properties.
At the first sign of a cold, Ayurveda suggests sipping hot water every 10 to 15 minutes for three days. According to Ayurvedic theory, ginger is one of the best remedy for colds, too. “Its pungent nature reduces the kapha dosha,” which is active during colds and produces excess mucus when it’s out of balance, recommends eating light, simple, and warm foods, particularly “clear foods”—clear broths, clear liquids (water and teas), and seasonal veggies that have some translucence.
Tulsi steam – Steam inhalation with decoction of holy basil (Tulsi) or water boiled with it. Doing it for many days will help in acute sinusitis.
