Three Effective Treatment Principles For Sinus Sufferers

Are you among 1 in 5 Americans suffering from sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, nasal congestion, postnasal drops, reflux or asthma? Did you know that effectively treating your nose, you may be able to treat or prevent other problems as well? Did you know that many strategies for treating nose and sinuses also apply to other conditions, such as reflux acid and asthma? Yes, they do! And it's important to treat your nose effectively as these are all interrelated.

Before reading further, please note that we are school psychologists and nose patients with the above condition as well as empty nose syndrome, but not healthcare professionals. While this treatment is generally effective for me, everyone acts differently to them, so what helps me may not benefit others. I strongly recommend that you discuss the treatment ideas in this article with your doctor before trying. The best way to deal with any health-related issues is to consult with a medical professional, and I am not responsible for the decisions made by those who read this article.

Now, a suggestion that all sinus patients do well: one important concept to keep in mind in treating your nose is you responsible for controlling your health. No one will do it for you. In fact, I realize that even though my nose problems may be a bit severe, as I have empty nose syndrome, I am actually down with less sinus infections than others around me as I learn more about my nose and follow a treatment strategy. works well for me. Many of the principles of treatment are universal.

The three guiding principles for improving nose health are:

Principle 1: Keep your nose moist while moving slime.

Principle 2: Maintaining good blood supply to the nose.

Principle 3: Relax.

The main strategy for Principle 1, keeping the nose moist while keeping the mucus moving, is nasal irrigation. This is a natural remedy that I believe every sinus patient should understand and should do. In short, it consists of rinsing the nose and sinuses with salt and water. I feel so strongly about nasal irrigation that I believe it should be tried first before considering nasal or sinus surgery (unless you require it).

Nose irrigation was popularized in 2007 by Oprah Winfrey, as she had Dr Mehmet Oz introduce a nettle pot to the audience. Dr. Oz suggested that the water used for irrigation should be warm and that it should include salt; without salt in the mixture that mimics the natural concentration of salt in the body, water will stimulate the smooth nose membrane. He also showed how many ear, nose and throat (ENT) experts recognize the value of doing irrigation, which can be more effective than medicine for treating nasal congestion, purity, or allergies, for example, as it involves directly cleans the nose and sinuses. Have you ever noticed an increase in irrigation products in your local drugstore compared to just 10 years ago? The number of products has increased significantly, as there are many benefits to cleansing your nose with salt water. I wish the nasal irrigation would be just as good and understood as a dirty hand wash!

The doctor who pioneered the concept of nasal irrigation in the United States was Dr. Murray Grossan, from Los Angeles, an innovative ENT expert who created the Grossan Hydro Pulse Nasal Irrigation System, which is reportedly for sale 400,000 until now. Interestingly, based on the feedback, Dr. Grossan estimates 10%, or 40,000, this buyer is from an empty nose patient. You can visit his website at http://www.hydromedonline.com to learn more about Hydro Pulse. Dr. Grossan needs to find effective drugs to treat his patients, many of whom have little money, without the use of drugs. I use Hydro Pulse twice daily, morning and evening. It is important to point out that Hydro Pulse has different advantages more than other irrigation products, such as nettles or syringes (the latter can breed bacteria):

1) Hydro Pulse pulsates at a rate to stimulate your nasal cavity for their best rhythm, restoring cilia function.

2) Hydro Pulse allows you to irrigate your nose and throat. It is important to irrigate both, especially as the nose moves to the throat. Irritation of the throat can lead to circulation to the throat, thus lowering the mucus and reducing postnasal drainage.

Another key strategy as part of Principle 1 and I believe everyone should keep in mind before considering nose or sinus surgery, except in an emergency, is to find the right treatment for your allergy. Allergies can lead to enlarged turbinate tissue that can block nose breathing, effective treatment for allergies can actually reduce the size of turbinates, an effect that can be very beneficial. (Please note: turbinates are a very complex structure in the nose with major finger size turbinates and they play an important role in heating, heating, and air filtration, directing and tracking airflow, and provide 50% resistance in overall airflow to the par- lung.) This treatment may consist of allergy and injection drugs. Allergy injections, for example, have been shown in medical literature to improve the immune system and functioning mucosa. This is usually given for 3-5 years for optimum benefits.

The third main strategy of Principle 1 is the right diet. This strategy may seem obvious, but it cannot be emphasized enough. Some tips to consider in terms of nutrition include drinking 8, 8-ounce glasses of water a day; drink warm tea with lime and honey, especially during flu or sinus infections; eat chicken soup; and eating foods that may be beneficial to the health of the sinuses such as vegetables, fresh fruits, spicy foods, wheat products, and high protein foods. On the other hand, foods to avoid include caffeine and alcohol products, which increase nasal dryness, and tobacco smoke, which aggravate the lungs and lead to respiratory difficulties.

Principle 2 maintains good blood supply to the nose. Exercise is a strategy that most people are familiar with and can help improve nose function. Exercise improves blood flow throughout the body, while increasing serotonin takes an inhibitor that physically reduces a person's risk of depression. When I run outside (or walk or do any physical activity), I find that I can breathe better through my nose. Empty nose people tend to benefit from good blood supply to their nose, sometimes looking for inversion techniques to help. An inversion technique consists of lowering the head from all over the body to increase blood supply to the head and left nasal tissue (turbinates). You can purchase inversion tables to perform this technique.

Principle 3 is to relax, to have a good night's sleep or to reduce stress in your daily life. It is important to get enough sleep every night, which is a natural way of healing the body. People who do not get enough sleep are more likely to have sinus infections. I remember reading Walt Ballenberger, the founder of http://www.postnasaldrip.net telling his readers that after 2.5 years, he had a sinus infection. Why? She has 3 hours of sleep in 48 hours. However, patients with empty nose syndrome may need to undergo a sleep study and may need continuous air pressure (CPAP) because of difficulty in breathing (and hence sleep). Some patients with worse nose noses report only being able to breathe for a few hours at a time every night. Finally, reducing stress is also important for sinus sufferers as it can only reduce the risk of sinus infections.

If you are among 1 in 5 Americans suffering from sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, nasal congestion, postnasal drops, acid reflux, asthma, and / or if you have empty nose syndrome, then I encourage you to use the treatment strategies discussed in this article, which may be the starting point for you to control your nose's health. Remember that you, no one else, will control your health.
