Lightbulb Sinus Medicine and Making the Connection and Mind, Body,
Sinus Medicine - Making the Connection - Mind, Body, Spirit
Quote:Did you know that when you experience pain either physically or mentally'any pain'it is your body's way of communicating with you? Have you ever considered that the origin of this pain may not be connected to the specific part of your body experiencing the pain? Have you ever wondered if the origin of the pain may be connected to another time or experience in your life that you have forgotten?

You don't need to play macho with your body, doing the 'stiff upper lip' method''I'm tough, I can take it,' 'I can handle anything,' or I'm responsible for everyone else' routine. Whether you pretend you're OK or not, over a period of time, your body just breaks down. You can give your body a break by beginning to resolve those emotional issues, which are hurting you. This article has been written with the intention of showing some illumination to the meaning of Sinusitis. This is so that those who don't know much about Sinusitis can learn more about it.

Your jaws are connected to your generative chakra'hips. The consciousness of TMJ is directly related to the misalignment of this chakra and your creativity. So if you are experiencing TMJ or any jaw misalignment'listen to your truth'Who/what are you angry at? Who/what do you resent? Do you have a desire to have revenge? What are you creating? Are you clenching your jaws or grinding your teeth'thus blocking yourself from creating a more fulfilling life. A lot of imagination is required in writing. People may think that writing on Sinus Cavities is very easy; on the contrary, knowledge and imagination has to be merged to create an interesting composition.

Many people want guidance in perfecting this technique and seek professional help. Mind, Body, Spirit healing is the most effective modality in facilitating or teaching this process. The length of an article is rather immaterial about its response from people. People are more interested in the matter about Sinusitis, and not length.

Knee Pain (Problems) Originates in the Shoulders
Shoulders represent our ability to carry our experiences in life joyously. We make life a burden by our attitude'taking on responsibility that does not belong to us. If you feel responsible for everyone in your life, that's a lot of weight and molecules to 'shoulder.' With that much weight, no wonder your knees are hurting in their effort to hold up all those people. Why have surgery to repair or replace your knee(s), when you can eliminate the burden from your knees'and shoulders'and free yourself of the excess weight? By having surgery you will simply continue to create the same problem and be back to the same predicament in a year or two. The more interesting an article, the more takers there are for the article. So we have made it a point to make this article on Sinus Medicine as interesting as possible!

Through pain, your body is working to get your attention. The key is to begin to listen. Your body is resilient and has an incredible capacity to handle stress and emotional issues, it can absorb a lot. But is it necessary to put your body through all this emotional effort on a regular basis? Is it worth it? When you deny your emotional issues or ignore the fact that your body is stressed out; sooner or later your body breaks down and you experience the pain'diagnosed as migraine headaches, MS, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Cancer, Diabetes, TMJ, PMS, and the list goes on.

Sinusitis, colds, respiratory issues, earaches and asthma are connected to your first chakra, which holds all your belief systems and your relationships, especially your family--irritation to one person, someone close. As we got to writing on Sinus Medicine, we found that the time we were given to write was inadequate to write all that there is to write about Sinus Medicine! So vast are its resources.

These are merely a few of the many ways our body communicates to us that we need to change something. From this point forward when your body has pain, ask your body, 'What is the pain about?' Pay attention to the response. For example: Close your eyes. Take a deep breath and blow out the breath with a big whoosh. Ask yourself: 'Why do I have a pain in my neck?' If the thought comes to you that you did something you aren't comfortable doing'pay attention to that thought. Expand on that thought. Maybe you said, 'Yes,' to something you didn't want to do. Maybe you talked yourself into doing something because someone else did it. Ask yourself many questions. If your response leads you to say, I want___. Notice if the pain you were experiencing has subsided or is completely gone. If the pain has subsided or is completely gone'you can be certain you have the right answer. If not, continue to explore and ask the question'What is the pain about? Initially this process may take several sessions over a few days, before you are certain of the answer. After you are accustomed to using this technique you will be certain of the answer on the first or second exploration.

Sinus medicine cannot clear your first chakra of emotional issues lodged in your sinus cavities. Only you have the power to resolve those for yourself. Herbal supplements can support your immune system so it can do its job, but you still need to clear the emotional issues to completely eliminate sinus issues. You need to uncover the reason for the irritation. It would be hopeless trying to get people who are not interested in knowing more about Sinus Medicine to read articles pertaining to it. Only people interested in Sinus Medicine will enjoy this article.

Modern Living, Complex Health Problems
In our post-modern industrial polluted stress-filled bad-diet culture, no one's health is simple. We are plagued by complex long-term illnesses like lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, AIDS, even sinus problems... it may seem weird to you that I include sinus infections, but the root causes of sinus trouble can be quite complicated... Especially if they are long-term.

Sinus Infection Causes
Sinus problems can be caused by many things- you have to think about environmental and food allergies (allergic sinusitis), chronic sinus infection, and chronic colds. Without more information, it's hard to be specific. Sinusitis often develops after colds, and can become a chronic problem. The sinuses are very small... one of our weak points, especially for people with weakened immune systems or in the presence of irritants (once again, pollution, allergens, etc.)... she probably asked about the farms and pesticides while she was thinking about the cause of your chronic sinusitis. We have gone through extensive research and reading to produce this article on Sinus Trouble. Use the information wisely so that the information will be properly used.
  • Brian Carter has been making herbs and acupuncture fun and easy to understand since 1999 when he founded the Pulse of Oriental Medicine.
  • For more about sinuses, Sinus Infection Symptoms and Information.
  • People have an inclination of bragging on the knowledge they have on any particular project.
  • However, we don't want to brag on what we know on Sinus Inflammation, so long as it proves useful to you, we are happy.

Brian is the author of "Powerful Body, Peaceful Mind:How to Heal Yourself with Foods, Herbs, and Acupressure." (http://www.pulsemed.org/bookpreview.htm) If you find anything extra mentioning about Acute Sinusitis, do inform us. It is only through the exchange of views and information will we learn more about Acute Sinusitis.

Mold, Fungus, and Sick Buildings
And we can't forget about mold! While some people appear to be more sensitive than others, fungus can cause fungal sinusitis. This gets into the whole 'sick-building' topic... Mold can grow in the walls of houses and offices, and is not always easy to detect. Wink

Antibiotic Overuse Problems
I hate to say it (because antibiotics are so great in some situations, and so popular overall), but antibiotics can complicate things even further - there are conditions that do not respond to them... and there are many situations in which they are not even indicated. Get more familiar with Sinus Infection once you finish reading this article. Only then will you realize the importance of Sinus Infection in your day to day life.

Sinus Infection Symptoms
The classic acute sinusitis symptoms are nasal congestion, green nasal phlegm, facial/dental pain, eye pain, headache, and a cough at night. Some patients also complain of fever, feeling ill, bad breath and a sore throat. Chronic sinusitis is more difficult to diagnose. You can have the same symptoms above in a milder form. Chronic means long-term; it's not usually thought of as chronic unless it's been going on for 2 months or more.

Serious Causes of Sinusitis, and Serious Solutions For those with chronic sinusitis, tests need to be done to rule out the serious things. Sinusitis can be just a simple end-of-your-cold complication, but it can also show up as part of: nasal tumors, fungal infections, and HIV or other immunodeficiency. What about the sinusitis surgery? It works from 50-93% of the time... so it can be a great help if you're sick and tired of it, and nothing else has worked. but it's also a super-painful process! I would see an herbalist first. You will learn the gravity of Nasal Congestion once you are through reading this matter. Nasal Congestion are very important, so learn its importance.
  • This is why, in Chinese Medicine, we always balance an herb with other herbs- if we are drying the phlegm, we also moisten at the same time.
  • Moisture helps the sinuses drain- you remember that Crocodile-Dundee-put-your-head-under-the-steaming-pot-thing?
  • Likewise, there are chinese herbs whose function it is to moisten and transform phlegm.

Cold and Deficient
If the mucus is clear or white, then it is more likely cold in nature. That fits with a Spleen-system deficiency and dampness. That would fit with the pulse she felt. You would have lowered appetite, feel fatigued, have loose stool, and possibly feel cold easily. Antibiotics wouldn't help here, and could even make things worse. We wish to stress on the importance and the necessity of Chronic Sinusitis through this article. This is because we see the need of propagating its necessity and importance!

Roadside weed spray side effects - When They're Wrong If the sinusitis hasn't responded to antibiotics, then either the wrong ones were prescribed, or you need to try another kind of treatment. Chinese Herbal Medicine can address the full spectrum of complaints and causes; we often treat the conditions which are not responding to conventional treatments like antibiotics. A woman wrote me about how antibiotics weren't solving her diarrhea problem- this can happen when the disease is cold in nature. Antibiotics are cold and bitter; these qualities help it fight the dampness and heat of bacterial infections. But they are more of the same damage when the disease is cold or deficient in nature. Acupuncture and moxibustion (the warming of acupuncture points) can also be effective; some people respond very quickly... results vary depending upon a number of factors (the acupuncturist's education, accuracy of diagnosis, frequency of treatment, and patient compliance with diet and lifestyle suggestions). Even if you are a stranger in the world of Sinusitis Surgery, once you are through with this article, you will no longer have to consider yourself to be a stranger in it!

Physicians have over-prescribed antibiotics for years... they know it, there have been studies that show it, and as a profession they've moved away from that. But people still want to leave the doctor's office with a prescription, a magic-bullet. Of course, sometimes the issue is which antibiotic is the most appropriate one. They don't all work for everything.

Sinus Infection - How to Get Rid of Sinus Headache?
Quote:Sinuses are air pockets in our skull and even small children have these cavities in their skulls. Sinus headache is caused when there is an infection in the sinus cavities either due to some microbes like virus or bacteria or even fungus or because of an allergic attack. How to get rid of sinus headache is all about making the symptoms of the sinusitis to subside!
  • To get rid of sinus headache one should think how to clear the nasal passage and sinus exits, which get blocked by the mucus.
  • Inhaling steam not only soothes the pain in the nasal passages but also provides humidity that is very much essential to clear the excess mucus. Smile

A preliminary diagnosis suggests that the sinusitis is because of an infection then to get rid of sinus headache, one should start taking some anti-biotics. How to know if it is an infection is not very difficult. All that one needs to do is to examine the color of phlegm and if it is yellow and green then most probably one needs an anti-biotic. Anti-biotics also makes the symptoms of the bodily reaction to the infection to subside, which is the main cause of discomfort to the patient.

Some of the things in vogue to get rid of sinus headache are applying vaporizers or balms on the fore head, taking painkillers etc. How is it that while sometimes sinus leads to headache but not always is also very important to know? It depends upon the sinuses affected and the kind and the extent of infection and the severity with which the body has responded to it. We were furnished with so many points to include while writing about Sinusitis that we were actually lost as to which to use and which to discard!

Three Years Ago, One of My Friends Had Got a Very Severe Sinusitis
He went to the doctor and the headache was so appalling that the only thing he could ask the doctor was how to get rid of sinus headache. The doctor smiled and said it depends upon the type of your sinusitis and if it is because of sinusitis at all. We also need to ensure before rushing in for medication and tablets that whether the headache is because of sinusitis or not.

Am Worn Out
I'm not worth much today. I cannot seem to get it together. This spot on my sinus is hurting again and I cannot breathe through my nostril. The smell of her perfume is getting to me. Wow, I sure could use a break from these fluorescent lights. Now my sinuses are throbbing. Finally, it's time to go home. I know it's dinner time, but I really don't feel like eating. I wonder if I will need to go to the doctor again and take another round of antibiotics. I hate that, because I always have to treat the yeast infection that follows.'

Regrettably this presentation of migraine usually receives a prescription of antibiotics rather than appropriate care. Just as bad, the patient gives up on seeking medical care and resorts to self-medicating which can lead to complications, such as, rebound headaches or chronic daily headaches. Proper diagnosis is essential to beginning appropriate care. Unfortunately many patients have even had multiple sinus surgeries without success. I am pleased to report that the efforts of headache experts are starting to be realized. I have found ENT surgeons in my area of the country are now more aware of migraines presentations and are more alert to recommend their patients to receive appropriate care.

This Person Falls Into the Migraine Syndrome Profile
Let me explain what I mean by the migraine syndrome. It is the outward expression of the body's sensitivity to light, sound, smell, food, and/or stress. Some people are more sensitive than others; therefore, their reactions to different stimuli are greater. This sensitivity can be manifested in the body as migraines, sinus headaches, neck aches, palpitations, irritable bowel syndrome, motion sickness or vertigo, reactive hypoglycemia, temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ), panic attacks, and/or fibromyalgia. Now that's a mouthful! Understanding what is going on with you is very important in the healing process. The value of this composition is achieved if after reading it, your knowledge on Sinus Headaches is greatly influenced. This is how we find out that the meaning of Sinus Headaches has really entered you!

After two painful sinus operations, I was still coming down with infections. I had to find some real remedy to my sinusitis problem, as I was tired of taking antibiotics and especially tired of the dull, deep headaches every time I had an attack.
  • Best of luck to all sinusitis sufferers.
  • I hope this information will help improve your lives as much as it has helped me.
  • Please don't hesitate to forward this article to friends and family who suffer from sinusitis.

Haven't eliminated sinus infections entirely, and I might come down with perhaps one per year. I'm more susceptible when very tired, or after long flights, as we often go back and forth to Europe for our tour business. When flying anywhere I make sure to take some kind of decongestant, normally the Flonase. I can enjoy wine, cheese, chocolate, and I really don't need to avoid any particular foods. Dr. Grossan's system has worked for me, and I certainly don't miss the deep, painful sinus infection headaches that used to be all too familiar. Dr. Grossan has lots of other advice in his book as well, and I definitely recommend that anyone with sinusitis read it. We were furnished with so many points to include while writing about Sinus Infections that we were actually lost as to which to use and which to discard!

Sinus Operations- Try to Avoid
The operations were no fun. After the first one my nose was "packed". This means that in order to stop the bleeding, the ENT specialist/surgeon put a large amount of gauze in my nose, which means that one can only breathe through the mouth for the week or so of recovery time. In other words, swallowing and breathing cannot occur at the same time. This is a good way to lose weight, as one cannot eat much, but it is not a great way to live. At the end of this period, before pulling out the gauze, the doctor said "this will feel like I'm pulling your brains out through your nose". This was the most accurate statement he ever made to me. Pulling what seemed like 6 feet of moist, sticky gauze out of my nose was an almost surrealistically painful sensation. But I thought, "if my deviated septum is now fixed, at least I can look forward to no sinus infections in the future, or at least a lot fewer of them. I was wrong again, as they started coming back after a few months. I changed ENT specialists since the first one put me through tons of pain for no gain. After a couple of years of treatment with this new doctor, I decided to take his advice and try another operation. Among other therapies, I had allergy shots during that time, even though I only tested positive for minor allergies to a couple of things. My nose was not "packed" this time, but there was still plenty of pain. Again my hopes for an infection-free future were dashed when they started up again after a few months. So after two operations by two different ENT specialists, I said "enough is enough". For those considering sinus operations to fix things like a deviated septum, here's my considered advice: don't do it. At least try the nasal irrigation recommended by Dr. Murray Grossan which is explained below before you do. One hears about people who have had 5 or 6 sinus operations, and these either don't work, or if they do cause improvement, it doesn't last very long. Some people have told me that a sinus operation "fixed" their problems, but I am skeptical. The results of one reading this composition is a good understanding on the topic of Nasal Sinus. So do go ahead and read this to learn more about Nasal Sinus.

The Easiest Way to Start
In the past couple of years Dr. Grossan has come up with his own machine for nasal irrigation. It is called the Hydro Pulse Nasal Irrigation System. For about $89 plus shipping one receives the Hydro Pulse Nasal/Sinus Irrigator, 2 Original Sinus Irrigator Tips , 2 Original Throat Irrigator Tips, Breathe-ease XL Nasal Moisturizer (this is the saline solution), and excerpts from,"The Sinus Cure" by Dr. Grossan.

Use a Waterpik and Adaptor
When I first started following Dr. Grossan's advice he suggested using a WaterPik machine, and these have been sold for years as devices to improve gum and dental health. Dr. Grossan simply sold an adaptor and a saline solution, although one can use table salt. Although much more expensive than salt, I find that this saline solution is convenient, works well, and has no preservatives. I usually purchase a dozen containers at a time, and these will last up to a year with one application per day. One simply puts a spoonful of saline solution into the WaterPik tank and then about 16 oz. of warm water to dissolve the powder. Then the nasal adaptor is put into one nostril and the machine will gently propel half the liquid through one's nasal canal, and it will drain out the other side. One then puts the adaptor in the other nostril and repeats the procedure on that side. This procedure is done while leaning over a sink. I then normally put more water into the tank and use the WaterPik on my teeth as it was originally intended, and I've helped my gum and dental health as well. My dental hygienist has made several comments about how much better my gums and teeth are when I go in for cleanings. The whole effort only takes about 5 minutes or so, including wiping everything dry. I normally do the irrigation once a day about an hour before bed, but if I happen to wake up with more than the usual congestion in the morning, I'll do it then as well.

Dr. Murray Grossan to the Rescue I thus started doing more research on other books and approaches, and in the course of this I came across a book by Dr. Murray Grossan called "The Sinus Cure- 7 Simple Steps". In a nutshell, Dr. Grossan's system worked. His book contains many technical explanations about sinusitis and how to deal with it. He clearly explains the reasons for the problem and suggests numerous remedies including diet considerations, home environmental improvements like duct cleaning and humidity control, and the most important aspect of the program: pulsating nasal irrigation with a saline solution. Wink

This is the Easiest Way to Start, as You Have Everything Needed
If the system works well and you want to continue to do nasal irrigation on a daily basis, I would suggest purchase of a pack of one dozen saline solution boxes, as the price is lower per box and there is only one shipping charge to pay. Of course one could still purchase a WaterPik at a retail store and buy the Dr. Grossan's adaptor and saline solution to work with it. For information about how to purchase these items, and also how to download a free ebook written by Dr. Grossan, follow the links at the end of this article.

Lightbulb RE: Sinus Medicine and Making the Connection and Mind, Body,
Nasal Irrigation - Recurring Sinus Infection - an Explanation?
As part of our efforts to chronicle the experiences of sinusitis sufferers, a gentleman named Carlton contributed a 'Sinusitis Treatment Success' story.

'Jens Panikau, sinus researcher at Mayo Clinic, has published a new finding that explains why sinus disease persists despite so many new drugs. Dr Panikau found that the main cause of sinus symptoms was that the eosinophiles ' your special cells that defend your body against infection, - get into the mucus and produce a toxic product called MBP that is made in order to kill bacteria. Unfortunately, among sinus sufferers, there is an excess of this MBP in the mucus that also damages the cells of the nose and impairs its ability to sweep bacteria out of the nose. Dr Panikau shows that it is the MBP that makes the patient sick, with fever, pain, fatigue, and secondary infections.'

Asked Carlton in a follow-up email if he had tested positive for fungi in previous allergy tests, and here is his response: 'Hello Walt:

Quote:Anyone who suffers from recurring sinus infection issues and who cannot find adequate relief after treatment by an otolaryngologist or after unsuccessful surgery are urged to do what Carlton has done:

I'll Let You Know How It Goes, but So Far, I Feel Much Better
Carlton' Huge Implications in the Study Results There are huge implications in this study for those who suffer from recurring sinus infection. This work could lead to treatments that treat the root cause of the problem for the first time. Big Grin.

He pointed out a study conducted by the Mayo clinic and the University of Buffalo addressing the issue of recurring sinus infection. It states that "chronic sinusitis is an immune disorder caused by fungus." Enhancing your vocabulary is our intention with the writing of this article on Nasal Irrigation. We have used new and interesting words to achieve this.

Had 2 Different Allergy Tests, Both Negative
The Mayo/U. of Buffalo research says this is not an allergic reaction like a pollen allergy, so it wouldn't show up in an allergy test. It's an over reaction to fungus by T-cells that damage the sinus lining and gives bacteria a place to grow. Most people have no reaction, but most people with chronic sinusitis do. Apparently there is a test, but ENT's are skeptical. Mine said the fungus idea was false and suggested surgery. If I was cynical, I might think his opinion was because there's no surgical solution.

This is Leading Edge Stuff
Mayo received a patent on anti-fungal treatments. I decided to try this approach after everything else failed. I don't want surgery, because I've never heard of one that worked. We have not included any imaginary or false information on Sinus here. Everything here is true and up to the mark! Big Grin.

Hopefully the follow-on work of the Mayo Clinic and University of Buffalo will identify antifungal treatments that can finally go after the root cause of recurring sinus infection. Sinus sufferers should be aware of these research efforts and be ready to discuss these findings with their ENT specialists. Maybe serious help is finally on the way.
  • Start using pulsating nasal irrigation to cleanse the nose of crusty old mucus which could be carrying toxins. 2.
  • Test your environment to see if you are exposed to high levels of fungus.
  • Using our imagination has helped us create a wonderful article on Chronic Sinusitis.
  • Being imaginative is indeed very important when writing about Chronic Sinusitis! :o
  • Another article in the Health Solutions Newsletter of Sept 2005 also referred to the Mayo Clinic/U. of Buffalo study and adds further clarification.
  • Their article was entitled 'Mayo Clinic Announces Startling New Sinus Discovery'

Ever wondered how you get a sinusitis? Ever wondered how you permanently get rid of sinusitis? According to medical study, sinusitis is defined as an inflammation involving the membrane lining of any sinus, and is a frequent finding in people with HIV disease. It occurs very commonly as part of a viral upper respiratory infection (URI), and usually is self-limited. Sinus disease is the most common complaint of patients in America.

There are a Large Number of Treatments that You can Choose to Get Rid of Sinusitis
You can choose either traditional anxiety meds or you could go for an alternative route there are the healing properties of herbalism, where you use fresh and or dried herbs to. Both are effective according to the situation.

Natural Ways
In fact, a 2006 study found that most sinus infections do clear up on their own if you choose not to use antibiotics. There are hundreds of other remedies that can be used according to the situation. Acupuncture is one of the known natural methods of helping get rid of sinusitis. Acupuncture is an age-old method adapted by the Chinese which employ the use of medicinal needles to prick the spots of the patient. A research study from the American Journal of Chinese Medicine demonstrated that acupuncture is an effective and safe alternative treatment for the management of seasonal allergic rhinitis. You might also try apple cider vinegar as a natural way of helping get rid of sinusitis as it contains potassium which not only thin out your mucous but also curing sinus problems very effectively. It was our decision to write so much on Sinus Cavities after finding out that there is still so much to learn on Sinus Cavities.

Did you know Acute sinusitis can last 2-8 weeks, Sub-acute-lasting from 1-3 months long and Chronic - which are those infections that have lasted longer than 3 months. Can your body system afford to survive that long? Discover how you, friends and family members can stay healthy and free from sinus problems, sinus infection relief constantly running noses or stuffed noses, no longer suffer today. Find out this natural treatment and get rid of your sinus problems forever. Please visit the link below. It may take some time to comprehend the matter on Sinusitis Medical that we have listed here. However, it is only through it's complete comprehension would you get the right picture of Sinusitis Medical.

Medical Ways
Usually, to get rid of sinusitis your doctor might prescribe antibiotics. They also recommend decongestants and antihistamines. Using decongestants when you have an upper respiratory infection may reduce your risk of developing sinusitis. However, decongestant nasal sprays should only be used for short periods of time, or they can make congestion worse.

Order to get rid of sinusitis medical treatments tend to offer steroids, nasal irrigation, and steam inhalation if the infections become more complex. Sinusitis unresponsive to antibiotic therapy may require surgery (maxillary sinusotomy, ethmoidectomy, or sphenoid sinusotomy) to improve ventilation and drainage and to remove inspissated mucopurulent material, epithelial debris, and hypertrophic mucous membrane. These procedures are usually performed intranasally with the aid of an endoscope. Sinus surgery involves the precise removal of diseased sinus tissue with the improvement in the natural drainage channels by the creation of a pathway for infected material to drain from the sinus cavities. In most situations, your doctor will employ endoscopic techniques which allow better and more precise visualization without the need for external incisions.

Sinusitis infections are a common condition which many people suffer from each year. There are many factors which contribute to a sinusitis infection. Frequently, the sinusitis will begin because of a cold or allergy though it can also develop because of fungal infections, reflux disease, and many other diseases such as cystic fibrosis. The sinusitis itself begins when the sinus cavity lining becomes swollen, usually because of a cold or allergy. When bacteria enter the sinus cavities and attack the swollen lining, greater inflammation occurs which causes the cilia, which usually flushes out mucus and bacteria that pollute the sinus cavities, to not function properly and therefore the bacteria and mucus become trapped which then causes the sinusitis infection.

Another option in treating a sinusitis infection when all other treatments have maxillary sinus surgery. Sinus surgery is painful, can leave scar tissue which can lead to future problems, and usually only offers temporary relief since only a portion of the inflammation and infection is removed and so the sinusitis infection often returns.

Just like in any medical condition, different treatments work for different people. In sinusitis it all depends on what stage the sinusitis is in along with other factors. What is important is finding the treatment form that works best for you and treating the sinusitis before it gets to a chronic stage that may create more problems and involve more extreme treatment options. :o.

There are Several Treatments Which are Used to Treat a Sinusitis Infection
One common treatment which is used is over the counter or prescribed nasal sprays. Nasal sprays work by distributing saline solution or medication up into the sinuses. The nasal sprays however have a large particle size that cannot make it past the inflammation at the opening of the sinus cavities and up to where the infection lies. The nasal sprays may only offer relief to the lower part of the sinuses. Oral antibiotics are also a commonly prescribed medication by physicians. Oral antibiotics work on many types of infections by flowing through the blood stream to the area of infection. The sinus cavities only contain a small amount of blood vessels therefore it is difficult for an efficient amount of antibiotic to arrive at the sinusitis infection. Oral antibiotics also can cause problems throughout the rest of the body, such as abdominal pain. Another newer form of treatment is aerosolized medications. Aerosolized medications work great because they are directly distributed into the sinus cavities so that they can cure the problem where it started.

There are many types of symptoms that may be experienced with a sinusitis infection. Some of the most common symptoms which may appear as cold like symptoms are cough, congestion, postnasal drip, green nasal discharge, and facial pain and pressure. A person may also experience a headache or even tooth pain due to the pressure of the inflammation pushing on the nerves in face. When the sinusitis infection lasts for twelve or more weeks it is then considered chronic sinusitis. With chronic sinusitis a person may also experience loss of sense of taste and smell and they also may become fatigued. Depending on which sinus cavity that the infection lies, there may also be other symptoms experienced.

Home Remedies are Also Frequently Used
Some people may breathe in hot steam. The steam is meant to help moisturize the sinuses and help thin the mucus. Though the steam may offer temporary relief and help some symptoms, in there is in fact an infection, only antibiotics may help cure it. Irrigation is also another common home remedy. Irrigation is used by inserting saline solution in to the sinus cavities to also help moisten them. Just like steam, this may only offer temporary relief and medication will need to be used. Sometimes, what we hear about Sinusitis Therapy can prove to be rather hilarious and illogical. This is why we have introduced this side of Sinusitis Therapy to you.
