Bronchitis and Sinusitis are two most common conditions during the winter months. Sinus headaches and nasal discharge cause severe cough leading to bronchitis. Bronchitis makes a patient miserable and helpless. Homeopathy can help these illnesses very effectively. Homeopathy treats bronchitis and sinusitis as either transient acute illnesses, or, in their chronic manifestations, as part of the constitutional picture of the patient. If these conditions rarely occur for the patient, they may be treated as acute illnesses and given homeopathic medicines that are only to be taken during the course of the infection.
