SINUSITIS

Sinusitis is one of the most common health conditions in the U.S. Studies show that that it affects approximately 37 million people per year. Since many people never actually see a doctor for a proper diagnosis because they think it’s merely just a cold or allergies, that number may actually be significantly higher.

Acute bacterial sinusitis is an infection of the sinus cavities caused by bacteria where the mucous membranes that line the inside of the nose and sinuses become inflamed. It is usually accompanied with a cold, allergy attack, or irritation by environmental pollutants.

When your sinuses become inflamed, they are unable to drain mucus through your nasal passages. This can lead to congestion and infection, which causes pressure and pain in the sinuses. Aside from that, when sinuses are unable to drain properly, bacteria and fungus are more likely to grow inside of them.

There are two types of sinusitis: acute (sudden) and chronic (long-term). When it comes to chronic sinusitis, you're never really free from symptoms and always have a low level of sinusitis symptoms.

As I stated earlier, many people are unaware that they even have sinusitis because symptoms are very similar to that of a cold or allergies. One way to distinguish the difference between the two is monitoring how long your symptoms last. A cold usually clears up after 5-7 days. Sinusitis symptoms last much longer. To truly determine if you have sinusitis, you should see a physician to get a proper diagnosis. Once you get that information from the doctor, he or she will probably want to prescribe an anti-biotic. At that point you should tell the doctor “thanks but no thanks”, pay your bill and make your way to the door. After that, head over to your natural health store and grab some supplements.

The first weapon of choice for fighting a cold is good old vitamin C. In his book Natural Alternatives to Drugs,. Michael T. Murray maintains "While the vitamin C studies have consistently demonstrated results superior to over-the-counter cold medications, manufacturers of vitamin C products are prevented from making any claims for their product, while the makers of OTC common-cold medications spend hundreds of millions of dollars brainwashing the American public into believing these products are the answer to the common cold." I couldn’t have said it better myself. I recommend taking 500 mg every 2 hours until the infection is cured.

Recent studies have shown N-acetylcysteine, which is a natural supplement to be effective in reducing the incidence of chronic sinusitis. N-acetylcysteine is derived from an amino acid and has been shown to help sinuses drain by keeping mucus fluid. Adults should take in doses of 200 mg. three times a day and children can 200 mg two times a day.

Zinc is also a great choice if you’re feel like you’re coming down with a cold. "Zinc is not only seen to be an important regulator of immunity, but has also been found clinically to be an excellent mineral to take in the event of viral illness, such as the common cold," writes the Life Extension Foundation.

Aside from strengthening the immune system, vitamin A thins the mucus and promotes the growth of healthy mucus-promoting cells so that’s also a great choice.

There are also a number of homeopathic medicine treatments you can consider such as eyebright, monkshood, wild hops and belladonna. Some of my personal favorite effective alternatives for fighting a cold are Echinacea, cinnamon, elderflower, ginger and licorice simply because they help improve your immune system instead of just band aiding the problem. Either choice is till always better than making the chemical, I mean drug companies rich.

 Honey Healer

It’s the third most common chronic disease in North America and costs employers an estimated $4 billion in lost workplace productivity annually. And while more than one-tenth of the U.S. population has it, the disease I speak of is one you likely haven’t heard of. It’s called chronic sinusitis, a disease that makes the very act of breathing a chore.

As the name implies, sinusitis is a disease that affects the sinuses (which are located behind the eyeballs) that causes the nasal cavity to inflame. As the nasal cavity inflames, the mucous membranes that normally drain out of the ostia build up, causing a significant amount of pressure on the brain, leading to painful headaches. But headaches are just the beginning of the array of symptoms associated with chronic sinusitis. Difficulty breathing due to congestion is common, as is sore throat, halitosis (bad breath), coughing, fatigue, facial pressure – basically all of the symptoms one typically gets from a really bad cold or flu. And because it’s a chronic condition, these symptoms can be felt for up to 12 weeks. Sometimes, even longer.

It’s not known what exactly causes chronic sinusitis. Some say it’s due to an overproduction of harmful bacteria that form on top of the nasal cavity itself; others say it’s brought on by an allergic reaction to a fungus. Whatever it is, scientists believe they’ve discovered a natural elixir to treating sinusitis, one that’s in the homes of millions of kitchen cupboards right now: honey.

The healing powers of honey have been well-documented, some more powerful than others. For instance, Peter Molan, a biochemist at the University of Waikato in Northern Ireland, says that all honeys contain hydrogen peroxide molecules that derive from enzymes bees provide in the honey-making process. Some honeys have anti-bacterial properties to it, to the point where it can be used as a topical treatment.

Speaking to the British news organization BBC News, Molan said, “It [honey] works on bacteria, fungi, protozoa. We haven’t found anything it doesn’t work on among infectious organisms.”

Perhaps it was this particular variety of honey that researchers from the University of Ottawa used on strains of bacteria that are linked with sinusitis. After applying honey to certain strands of sinusitis bacteria, ones highly resistant to antibiotic treatments, the honey’s effectiveness in killing the bacteria was “significantly more effective” than the antibiotic treatment. The researchers presented their findings to the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Foundation (wow, that’s a mouthful) in Chicago.

This is a truly exciting finding for the millions of Americans that suffer from this disease annually, but I’m particularly heartened by it because it buttresses the abundance of data indicating how beneficial honey is from a nutritional standpoint, and as this study indicates, from a medicinal standpoint as well.

There are dozens of varieties of honey, but you’re not likely to find an assortment of any kind on supermarket store shelves. Most of them are honey hoaxes –a driblet of pure honey intermixed with copious amounts of high fructose corn syrup. To be sure you’re getting 100 percent pure honey, look for organic sources from whole food markets (all organic honey is 100 percent pure); even better, seek out locally grown honey makers near you.

Have you been waking up to a bad case of headache with nasal congestion for the past days or so?  Do you feel like the area around your eyes and your cheeks are swollen?  If yes, then you may have sinusitis. Sinusitis happens when there is an inflammation of the nasal sinuses. Major causes of sinusitis are allergies to pollen, dust and pets; or even indoor pollutants such as formaldehyde, rug shampoo and cigarette smoke. At the same time, other air pollutants such as vehicular emissions can also clog or block the nasal passages which can precipitate and trigger inflammation. Air-conditioning and dry-air heating systems can also cause sinus inflammation due to excessive dryness. Problems with your nasal structure such as polyps, tumors or deviated septum, as well as a weakened immune system, can also trigger sinusitis.

Sinusitis is just plain uncomfortable and it can dampen your day due to its accompanying symptoms that majorly consists of a headache across the middle of your face and between your eyes; nasal congestion that won’t allow you to breath properly; and the embarrassing nasal drip. These symptoms are made further more disturbing especially if you are scheduled to make a presentation in front of your boss at the office. Or even if you are just staying home, sinusitis can bring a lot of stress when all you wanted to do for the weekend is rest.  In any way, sinusitis can slow us or impede our daily activities.  Here are some natural ways to help you find relief from sinusitis:

  1. Breathe in Moist Air

To ease your nasal passages from sinus pain and congestion, it is best to breathe and revel in moist and warm air.  If you’re suffering from sinusitis you can use a vaporizer as a form of relief.  You can also boil some water in the pan and inhale its steam.  Other people also use warm compress to relieve the condition by situating a heating pad on top of the affected areas while for some, taking a hot shower helps relieve sinusitis symptoms.  The heat or warmth can relax or soothe your nasal passages which will make breathing easier.

  1. Stop Smoking and Avoid Smoking Areas

If you’re suffering from sinusitis smoking or breathing in secondhand smoke can further worsen the condition.  Avoid cigarette smoke as if your entire life depended on it – because, come to think of it, it actually does.  Smoking is harmful to your overall health and it can also cause conditions such as cancer and hypertension. For a person with sinusitis, cigarette smoke can further inflame or block the nasal passages which will make breathing harder.  At the same time, secondhand smoke is much more detrimental to our health compare to firsthand smoke. So, if you’re in a restaurant and if you have sinusitis, choose to sit in the non-smoking area while enjoying your meal.  

  1. Water! Water! Water!

Another simple and natural way to treat your inflamed sinuses is to drink sufficient amounts of water. Hydration is important.  Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water per day since it will help thin your mucus and relieve the symptoms of the condition. You can also drink a cup of hot tea. The steam from the tea can be a good treatment and at the same time a good way to hydrate your body. Hydration can also help your nose to drain away the blockages from your nasal pathway, hence reducing your chances of having to suffer from sinus or nasal congestion.

  1. Know your Triggers

Sinusitis is mainly caused by allergens such as dust, dust mites or pollens. It may be caused by fungal, bacterial and viral infection, as well as climate and temperature changes.  The use of some medications can also trigger sinusitis as one of its side-effects.  One of the best ways to avoid the condition is to know what can trigger the symptoms of sinusitis. For example if you’re well aware that dust or smoke can activate your sinusitis, then make sure that your home and office spaces are clean. At the same time avoid smoking areas. Also, carry a handkerchief to cover your nose if you’re outdoors and there’s a constant bombardment of air pollutants in your surroundings.

  1. Search your Pantry for Nature’s Best Remedies
    • Ginger is an important home remedy for several nasal and viral problems and it works great with sinusitis.  Extract the juice of a raw ginger and drink at least one or two teaspoons twice a day until your symptoms are gone completely.
    • Garlic is another home remedy. Use at least four or five garlic cloves and dip them in water for 10 to 20 minutes.  Make a paste out of it and inhale its aroma, this will relax the mucus in your nasal passages, making it easier for you to breath.
    • Cumin seeds are good for treating sinusitis. Get a perforated cloth and a teaspoon of cumin and then breathe in its aroma or fragrance.
    • Cinnamon is one of nature’s gifts to help relieve the symptoms of the condition.  Prepare a teaspoon or two of powdered cinnamon and then add a bit of water into the powder. Make a paste out of the mixture and apply it over your nose or head.
  2. Fruits and Vegetables are Your Best Friends

Fruits and veggies are known to cure sinusitis especially oranges that are rich in Vitamin C.  Mangoes are a good choice in relieving your sinusitis as well as fresh orange and sweet grape juice.  With fruits, you can say goodbye to your nasal blockages in no time and while loading up in your daily dose of vitamins, especially Vitamin C, known to boost the immunity.  As an added bonus, these fruits taste good, too. Veggies, though they do not really taste as good as fruits, are also your best buddies especially those that are rich in Vitamin A and C, such as tomatoes, carrots and pumpkins.

  1. Eat and Sleep Well

Another way to treat sinusitis and to avoid them is to have a healthy diet. A balanced and hearty meal will boost your immune system, thus lowering your chances of acquiring sinusitis.  Also, avoid people that have colds and flu.  Furthermore, if you’re experiencing a nasty case of sinusitis, it’s advisable that you elevate the head of your bed by 6 inches. This will drain your sinuses in no time. Most important of all, get enough sleep in order to help your b
