Resisting Chronic Sinus Infection

By: Paul Hood

Sinus infections that have graduated to the chronic stage deserve the honor of being treated with the right type of antibiotic.

Sinus problems may be caused by a number of different factors which include environmental and food allergies (allergic sinusitis), chronic sinus infection, and chronic colds. This problem is further aggravated if the sinuses get plugged trapping mucus inside which serve as breeding grounds for harmful microorganisms like bacteria.

The usual symptoms of acute sinusitis are nasal congestion, green nasal phlegm, facial/dental pain, eye pain, headache, and a cough at night. Some may also complain of fever, feeling ill, bad breath and a sore throat.

There abound a great may antibiotics designed for every illness known to man. With this multitude, you may sometimes get the wrong type and this may cause your infection grow from chronic to more chronic or " chronicer " if there is such a word.

Sinus infections have different causes and determining this cause may not be that easy but it is required for the physician to prescribe the right kind of antibiotic. If you have been given an antibiotic and your sinusitis has not responded to it, then you might have been given the wrong antibiotic. You may choose to ask another doctor's opinion or try another kind of treatment.

A danger in taking the wrong antibiotic is developing resistance to this medicine. Antibiotic resistance has grown to be a major health threat making it very important to be accurately diagnosed by a competent doctor. It may sometimes be difficult for physicians to give the best prescription for your condition so it would be best to give them all the help they can get. You have much at stake and giving Doc all he needs to know will improve chances of you being given the right antibiotic.

How much would both a tonsillectomy and a rhinoplasty cost? I need to remove my tonsils and get my deviated septum straightened. The hospital tells us we would have to wait a couple of years but the discomfort is getting to much, especially with the chronic sinus disease. How much, (roughly) would each or both of them cost? I don't have health insurance but I want to go private for the operation. Taking in that I'm from Queensland, thats im a female aged 17. I do have medicare so would they contribute for some of the cost?

The following works for simple cold, running nose, sore throat and strep throat, when the throat is hurting.

The most visible thing about sinus is swelling.

The easiest way to control swelling is to give up water and all other liquids for 24 hours. In 24 hours there will be no significant dehydration to cause organ failure. But to be double sure one can stay indoors for 24 hours.

Now if you decided to try it the next problem is that one who is used to drinking water or other liquids feel thirsty quite often. They find it very difficult to manage without water for more than 6 hours. For that follow one of the following routines. The option 1 is better then 2 and 2 is better then 3.

1). Start drinking 1 glass of water 1 hour before each meal. So in all there will be 3 glasses of water in 24 hours. Give up all other liquids. After 3-4 days this will help u to stay without water for 24 hours or more.

2). Start drinking 2 glasses of water with 1/2 spoon of salt 1 hour before each meal. (Those with very high blood pressure - may do so at their own risks. But others who do not suffer from very high blood pressure may do so by taking their blood pressure every day). After 4-5 days you can stay without water for 24 hours or more without water and other liquids.

3). First thing in the morning drink tea (on empty stomach). It should be normal tea not too strong nor too light. One should not take anything with tea. No water or anything before or after tea for atleast 2 hour. Tea on empty stomach leaves a bitter taste in mouth. Resist drinking water or any other liquid for next 3-4 hours. After this the bitter taste will be gone. AFter this there will be no thirst signals. For the next 48 hours there will be enough fluid in your mouth and food pipe. You can eat your normal meals minus any liquids for next 24 hours. This will resolve all health issues including poor digestion.

In 24 hours the reduction in the fluids will be about 3 litres or about 5% of the total body weight of a normal adult.

Never the swelling due to sinus or cold and cough is more than 5% of the body volume.

During this period of 24 hours the lose of water from the body does not reduce even by 1% to offset reduced water intake.

The reduction in loss of body water thru urine or sweating starts after 48 hours in most of people. But to be on safe side giving up water and liquids for 24 hours will do the trick.

The reduced swelling will give immediate relief from pain. It will make is much more easier to eliminate the cough thru nose without any pain.

That will also improve the blood acid levels by about 10%. This makes changes at the cell level as well. Blood acid levels are the first line of defense against the infections.

So swelling gone, pain gone, cough moving out, infections taken care of. Now what remains in the body for the next change of season time. Obviously nothing.

So it has already given u long term relief from sinus. But in some cases one may get sinus during next change of season and may have to do this again. The reason is during change of season the body must adjust the water that is stored in the body. Due to some cell level changes the ability of the body to bring those changes is lost. But after 2-3 seasons that ability of the body will be restored and there will be complete relief from sinus.

To decide whether the above is right or not, you may comment whether u are in the habit of regularly drinking water and other liquids or out of work or other reasons u remain without water and other liquids for long periods of time. Those who are very regular in drinking water and other liquids are more prone to sinus and related complications. People who are extremely dehydrated are also very likely to face sinus and related complications. Those who are on and off with water are not likely to face this sinus thing.

How does muscles test? works?? I just went to see my Chiropractic doctor who started to treat me for various health problems (Allergy, Sinus infection, Yeast Infection) using Homeopathy and whole food diet pills. I was amazed how he would touch certain pressure point while I hold different homeopathy or Pills in one hand while he did the muscles test to see how I respond and selected which combination of pills I need. He was even able to diagnose what was going on my body. I was/am very skeptical and how reliable/accurate these testing are, and how exactly work and why. Can anyone please explain to me? I am so used to going to a conventional doctor who does blood work, or check my symptom by examining me, and prescribe me a medication....but I wanted to try holistic approach, and found this Chiropractor by referral.

there is a great book called the Ultimate healing system that teaches you how to muscle test. I found this easy to read article on it. It explaines how it is done.

What Is Muscle Response Testing

Who Uses MRT or Muscle Response Testing
Muscle Response Testing is a diagnostic technique that is valuable to many procedures and treatments. It is a viable, efficient and effective tool for determining the body's needs. MRT is currently being used by many healing disciplines: medical doctors, acupuncturists, chiropractors, naturopaths, osteopaths, holistic dentists, veterinarians and other practitioners. In fact many books have been written on MRT including one written in 1995 by David R. Hawkins, MD and Psychiatrist. He previously co-authored a book on Orthomolecular Psychiatry with Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling.

Who Developed Muscle Testing?
Muscle testing was developed in l964 by Dr.George Goodheart, DC, a Chiropractor. He developed a diagnostic system called Applied Kinesiology, which allowed muscles to be tested for clinical and diagnostic purposes, not just to determine muscle strength. Applied Kinesiology was derived from the ancient art of Acupuncture, which was developed by the Chinese between 3000 and 25 BC.

How It Is Done
The practitioner gently pushes down on the patient's extended arm which is resisting the downward pressure. If we irritate the nervous system for a second, it will cause a temporary short circuit causing the testing arm to momentarily go weak. We can irritate the nervous system by touching a sensitive area on the body, a weakened reflex, acupuncture point or even by an uncomfortable or irritating thought. One of the most valuable uses of the muscle test is to ask "yes/no" questions of the nervous system, looking for a weak or strong response. This reveals information about troubled areas in the body and how to treat them.

How Does It Work?
When our body's energy system processes a stimulus , there are thousands of instant reactions going on in the nervous system on a cellular and tissue level. Many of these are observable. Like the questions asked in a lie detector test, our heart rate may increase or decrease, our breathing rate may be altered, our pulse can change, our digestion may be effected, our skin texture will change (sweat/clammy) and muscles may get momentarily weaker or stronger.

It is our muscle response that we will pay attention to for an indicator to measure a response, reaction or state of being in the body/mind.

When the body/mind's bio computer is momentarily focused on an irritation or imbalance in its system, our muscles seem to momentarily weaken or contract. This is not noticed in our everyday lives. However, if we were to test the strength of a muscle with MRT, we would notice a momentary weakness. It is almost as if the nervous system short circuits the muscle for a second. It is this momentary weakness that gives us our information.

What Can It Be Used For?
It is now determined that muscle testing can be used for virtually any question that can be asked of the body to make determinations about physiology, skeletal trauma, allergies, nutritional imbalances, emotional states or anything that can affect body or mind etc. This diagnostic tool is only limited to the creativity of the practitioner's ability to ask the proper questions. Once the information is ascertained, muscle testing can then be used to find out what the body or mind will respond to in terms of a resolution to the problem.

This breakthrough allows us to obtain information about weaknesses in the body that were previously unavailable. Hidden problems that would have remained undetected until they became chronic problems could be seen in advance and treated quickly.

Another important benefit of MRT is that many of these problems fall under the radar of conventional lab and exam tests and are not discovered at all except with the benefit of MRT.

I hope you found your answer Helene @ botanica west

Is sinus surgery permanent? I had sinus surgery 5-6 years ago due to chronic sinusitis. I seem to be having the same symptoms of chronic sinusitis yet again. Does anyone know if the surgery is permanent? When they did the surgery, they went in and drilled little holes in the bones in my face to help drain my sinuses better. Would this be a permanent thing, or is this kind of surgery one that needs to be repeated every few years? Any suggestions?
Thanks

Constant ear popping/clogging for 5 years? My ears have been popping/clogging for 5 years?
This has been going on for 5 or 6 years. Over the years I have gone to 2 different ENT doctors, my family doctor periodically, and an Allergist. I've tried medicines like nasal sprays, antihistamines, decongestants, Neil Med sinus rinses, allegra, have been treated for eustacian tube dysfunction, and ears are still popping. I've had chronic colds and sinus infection here and there, and have tested positive for allergies during an allergy test several months ago, and I have been on allergy drops, but those aren't helping the popping. Those medicines have cleared my stuffiness a lot, but not the ear popping/clogging. I used to get ear wax build up several years ago as well, but now when I go to the doctors to get them cleaned out there hasn't been hardly any ear wax in them, so that is not the problem. What is the problem if none of these are causing my ear all this constant popping? The popping happens when I yawn, swallow, or breath in. I can't hear pitch anymore like I used to when I could sing in high school. I quit smoking 4 months ago, and feel like I've lost a little hearing due to this problem because I can't hear people well through music and stuff like that. What is wrong, help? There is no pain with any of these symptoms.
I'm a 26 year old male.

Everyday headaches have been crippling my entire life. I don't remember one moment of my life withoheathen.? Doctors believe I may have even had them as a baby. I have been to many neurologist in an attempt to get rid of this crutch. I have ct scans done every 6 months and nothing has ever showed up. I have even gone to an allergist to see if sinus issues could be the cause, it wasn't. I've been to an OBGYN in hopes that it may be hormone or period related, wasn't either. I've been to an eye specialist since I wear glasses to see if my visioncould be the reason. Once again a brick wall. I have even done personal research trying to find out causes, but it seems I'm the only person that has this issue. Everyone has headaches off and on, but mine is constant. It has never once gone away. The severity from day to day may change, but I've never been able to have any kind now on a really strong beta blocker, allergy medications, and a pill for migraines, without any relief. I'm begin to think this is just something I'm going to have to just live with. I started trying to fond relief when I was 9 and I'm now 23, and my doctors haven't found any suggestions for my condition. They say there isn't even a term for what's wrong other than chronic headaches, but suggest that it comes and goes so this diagnosis doesn't really fine. The only thing the doctors has ever found is on the ct scan, it shows my frontal head muscles are weakening because of my headache being constant my muscles are weakening due to this. If any can offer any suggestions it would be appreciated and I'm willingto offer any other information needed.
