Sinusitis

The sinuses are air-filled spaces within the bones of your face that open up into the nasal cavity. They’re lined with the same membrane as your nose. This lining is called the mucous membrane and it produces a secretion called mucus to keep the nasal passageways moist and to trap dirt particles and bacteria.
You have four main pairs of sinuses.

  • The maxillary sinuses are in each cheekbone
  • The frontal sinuses are on either side of your forehead, above your eyes
  • The smaller ethmoid sinuses are behind the bridge of your nose, between your eyes
  • The sphenoid sinuses are between the upper part of your nose and behind your eyes.

Sinusitis is often caused by an infection of the mucous membranes with a virus, bacterium or fungus. Most people with acute sinusitis have had a viral infection such as the common cold. During a cold the mucous membranes become swollen and tend to block the openings of the sinuses.
Irritants and allergens can inflame the linings of your nose and sinuses, causing sinusitis. Some examples of irritants include:

  • airborne allergens such as grass and tree pollen
  • smoke and air pollution
  • sprays containing chemicals, such as household detergents.

Enlarged adenoids and growths on the mucous membranes, such as nasal polyps, may block the openings to the sinuses and cause sinusitis. Medication brings temporary relief and in extreme cases surgery can be the only answer.

Salt Therapy is a clinically proven 100% DRUG FREE alternative treatment for sinusitis, which has been successful in assisting the return of normal function of the sinuses and in providing relief to sufferers of sinusitis.

Inhaling salt particles has a bactericidal effect, strengthens immunity and reduces oedema of the nasal mucosa. This reduced swelling leads to widening of the airway passages in the nose and the tubes of the sinuses allowing them to drain naturally…bringing relief.

Prescription drugs like antibiotics or decongestants bring some relief but have adverse side effects. Salt Therapy will not only bring much needed relief but it will also prevent the frequent recurrence of your symptoms. Book Now!
