An ideal level of humidity to keep the sinuses healthy
 

According to Dr. Robert Ivker, D.O., former President of the American Holistic Medical Association, the ideal level of relative humidity for sinus health is between 35-45 percent. (To... accurately determine the relative humidity in your home you would use a hygrometer, available in most home improvement stores).


If your home or office is too humid (above 45 percent), you may want to consider reducing the amount of moisture in the air, as excessive levels may cause mold and fungi growth that could wreak havoc on your health—it may even be the root cause if you're suffering from chronic sinus infections.

To decrease humidity, you can:

  1. Use a dehumidifier
  2. Run the air conditioner
  3. Take colder and shorter showers
  4. Install a fan in your kitchen and bathrooms, and leave them on for awhile after you're done cooking or showering

You must be VERY careful about making sure that the humidity levels are not too high. This may be cause by a leaky roof, foundation or plumbing. The high humidity will cause mold to grow which could devastate your health. So the key is to find the cause of the increased humidity and repair it. It would be wise to use a large commercial dehumidifier in your home to lower the humidity until the problem is fixed.

However, very dry air is also known to increase feelings of congestion because drying out your sinus membranes can irritate them further. So depending on your individual circumstances, if the air in your home is excessively dry, then increasing the humidity may help.

To increase humidity, you can:

  1. Use a vaporizer or humidifier
  2. Inhale steam by taking a hot shower, or filling your sink with hot water, then placing a towel over your head as you lean over the sink
  3. Breathe in the steam from a hot cup of tea
