Chronic Sinus Infection

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.

Antibiotic 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).

Decongestant Side Effects

Decongestants are often prescribed. They work by drying you out. Unfortunately, they don't just dry the mucus. Long-term use of decongestants can lead to other problems, like the dry or heat types of sinus inflammation.


Cyst Sinus Infection Symptoms Antibiotics and Alternative Medicine





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. It was with great optimism that we started out on writing this composition on Sinusitis Symptoms. Please don't let us lose this optimism.



  • 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.
  • Patience was exercised in this article on Sinuses.
  • Without patience, it would not have been possible to write extensively on Sinuses. Very Happy



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 have actually followed a certain pattern while writing on Sinus. We have used simple words and sentences to facilitate easy understanding for the reader.

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. How to avoid 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.

  • Read the article and see if we have succeeded in this or not! Laughing



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. Laughing

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.

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.

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. Idea

Information is the best way to be prepared for illness, especially sinusitis. Sinusitis is an advanced information on a sinus fungal infection, and it can most easily be prevented by knowing what to look for. Can you spot a sinus infection symptom right away? Do you know what to look for?

This informational article provides a brief description of a sinus infection symptom and what to do when you spot it. In reviewing each sinus infection symptom, remember that they are commonly mistaken for symptoms of a common cold or allergies. Though they hold symptoms in common with sinusitis and sinus infection, a sinus infection symptom may arise when allergies aren't normally sparked and when the cold is out of season. But, to be thorough, cold and allergy symptoms can easily turn into a sinus infection if left untreated. In fact, more than one sinus problem could result from not knowing what the sinus infection symptoms are. At worst, sinusitis or sinus infection could result in sinus surgery. Rolling Eyes

These are only a few examples of a sinus infection symptom. When a symptom does occur, it's best to be prepared. The best preparation is prevention. I have already mentioned nasal spray, and a lot of people don't understand why that would help. Think of what washing your hands does to prevent bacteria elon university the nose and mouth when you touch them. Using nasal spray has the same cleansing effect on the nasal passages. It is best to use a nasal spray with Xylitol as the leading ingredient, as it is a natural enemy to bacteria, and is proven to help prevent sinus infection. As Xylitol rinses out the nasal passages, it helps to keep bacteria from settling and festering into infection in the moisture and warmth of the nasal passages. Evil or Very Mad

Nasal Congestions-Nasal congestions may begin as a cold or an allergy, but if congestions in the nasal cavities stick around, that is a red flag. Congestions may arise from fluids which drain into the Eustachian tubes from the ear or the nose. Since the tube is not as slanted in children, there is more of a tendency for water from bathing or swimming to rest in the Eustachian tube and become infected with bacteria.

Post Nasal Drip-Post nasal drip is a sensation of liquid or mucous build up in the back of the throat. We are constantly sniffing and, of course, breathing. This means that when we sniff, mucous is drawn to the back of the throat, and when we breathe condensed air moisture is also drawn to the back of the throat. Post nasal drip may actually be blown back upward into the sinuses, or even into the ears and the Eustachian tube with coughing or sneezing. When this occurs, a sinus infection symptom may quickly become an ear infection symptom. Laughing

Which Sinus Infection Symptom Have You Spotted?

Sinus Headache-People tend to let this one go by or just treat it with Aspirin. Don't let it slide so easily. A sinus headache is different from a normal headache in that the aching is located behind the nose or eyes, where wash sinuses are. This could be caused by congestion or even infection in the nasal passages. You'd be surprised how far nasal spray can go in preventing this symptom.

Swollen, inflamed sinuses are, to put it mildly, very uncomfortable. Sinuses get infected and inflamed through various means. Sinusitis is caused by allergies to something in the air we breath or even to the food we eat. Finding out what is causing the infection is the province of ear, nose, and throat specialists. Sometimes weather is a factor. How to effectively get relief is the subject of this article. Surprised.



  • One of the things to do is to go on a minimal liquid diet or a water fast to see if the infection is caused by something in the diet.
  • If you get relief then you know it is something that you are ingesting.
  • Slowly resume your normal diet by adding a few foods at a time until you find the cause or go to an allergist for him/her to find the cause. Very Happy
  • Good multi-vitamin/mineral supplement is also a good idea with additional vitamin C and vitamin A.
  • See a health practitioner for other vitamin/mineral suggestions.
  • Proper digestion and the elimination of stress(as much as possible) is also suggested.
  • You must have searched high and low for some matter for Sinus Congestion, isn't it?
  • That is the main reason we compiled this article for you to get that required matter! Embarassed



Another favorite method is to inhale steam by bending over boiling water with a towel around your head to 'catch' the steam. These methods are not intended to replace normal medical care by your health care provider but to supplement their care or to provide relief until your next office visit. It is not always that we just turn on the computer, and there is a page about Sinus. We have written this article to let others know more about Sinus through our resources.

One of my favorite, immediate relief of symptoms of sinus congestion is the use of aromatherapy. A mixture of a few drops of lavender, eucalyptus and peppermint essential oils on a tissue and sniffed sometimes offer great, immediate relief, while waiting on sinus decongestants to kick in. Now while reading about Sinus Congestion, don't you feel that you never knew so much existed about Sinus Congestion? So much matter you never knew existed. Laughing

There are also some herbal remedies that sometimes work very well depending on the person. Some of these are: goldenseal, yarrow, garlic and elderflowers. These can be purchased at most health food stores as a tincture. There are many herbal formulas that are also available from the same source.
