Sinus infection also called sinusitis, is inflammation of the paranasal sinuses that may occur when having an infection, allergy or autoimmune issues. Discuss topics including causes, symptoms and treatments for sinusitis.
Hi I have had chronic sinus issues for yrs have had allergirgy skin and blood test food and enviorment .just had normal ct I avoid dairy for sinus and stomach issues. I was wondering if anyone has had chronic sinisitis with no identifiable allergy and normal ct and has anyone found relief and how,Thanks
You do not say what self-measures you have tried. Have you done regular nasal washing with warm salt water each day? NO? Well you need to do that!
ANYONE & EVERYONE with sinus issues hasGOTt to rinse their nose with warm salt water every day--maybe even 2-3 times per day at first. Up to 5 times per day with a sinus infection. It will allow your antibiotic to work better.
if you make daily saline nasal rinsing a part of your normal routine you will
breathe better, feel better and your life will improve.
One nasal rinse clears out so much mucus - especially if you are
also taking the guaifenesin and drinking warm tea or warm water. And using the Xlear
natural nasal spray.
First wash your nose with warm salt water using a neti pot. Do this several times a day .Then follow the rinsing with
a spray called Xlear.
The Xlear Nasal Spray line contains xylitol, purified water, salt, and grapefruit seed extract as a preservative. Using xylitol in the spray make it a hyper-osmotic
solution which helps pull moisture toward it. This action keeps the nasal passages and sinuses moist for a much longer time than saline alone. Xylitol is the ingredient that sets this product apart. Safe & non-addicting.
I am so used to nosewashing now that for me it's no big deal. it's like brushing my teeth
or washing my face or taking a shower.
I can't even think of NOT doing it at least once a day.
REGULAR NOSE RINSING also restores the cilia
which are THE MICROSCOPIC HAIRS IN OUR RESPIRATORY TRACT & the natural cleaners of the nose.
But to have continuing effects you must do it daily.
I also think giving up dairy is important. Dairy is
a mucus-producing food plus it's a cancer promoter.
so for better sinus health/allergy relief - I say do this :
1. wash you nose every single day with warm salt water - at least once . . .
2. use Xlear 2x a day after nose washing . . . .
3 take guaifenesin every day .. . .
4. no dairy . . .
IF YOU DO THOSE 4 THINGS FOR ONE MONTH I BET YOU'LL
BE FINE. BUT YOU HAVE TO BE CONSISTENT AND NOT TAKE ANY DAYS OFF.
ACTUALLY YOU'LL BE A LOT BETTER IN 2 WEEKS BUT DO THESE THINGS
FOR ONE MONTH AND SEE HOW GOOD YOU FEEL--!!
The Benefits of nose washing :
1. When you irrigate, the hypertonic saline (salt water) acts as a solvent and washes
the mucus crusts and other debris from you nose.
2. The higher salt concentration pulls fluid out of the swollen membranes and
shrinks them. This decongests and improves air flow into your nose. The sinus
passages begin to open.
3. Studies have also shown that high concentration salt water and an alkaline
irrigation (baking soda) improves nasal membrane cell function (mucociliary flow
of mucus debris).
