Sinus Problems? We Can Help!
Sinus Problems? We Can Help! Many of us suffer from sinusitis or sinus problems. The standard treatment for sinus problems is first to treat them with over the counter antihistamines and decongestants and if that doesn’t work you will be prescribed a round of antibiotics and possibly steroids for the inflammation.
These products list mild to severe side effects and when used over long periods can prove even more problematic. We suggest having a BioEnergetic Assessment to get to the root of the problem. BioEnergetic Assessment is a non-invasive method of assessing the energetic pathways, or meridians, of the body that are traditionally associated with particular organs and systems. In the mean time you can avoid these unnecessary side effects of prescription drugs and save yourself the expense by learning how to treat sinusitis naturally. If you fear having surgery, or and don’t want to be on antibiotics, take a look at these suggestions. There’s a potpourri of ways to deal with sinusitus and its symptoms.
Water, Water, Water and More Water
The most important nutrient for the human body is water.An average person can live for about forty to forty five days without food but only three to five days without water. Approximately two-thirds of a person’s body weight is water. Our blood is made up of 82 percent water and both our brain and muscles, are 75 percent water. The major ingredient of all body fluids is water. The average sized person requires 2 to 3 quarts of water per day. A good formula to calculate your specific water requirements would be to drink half of your weight in ounces. For example, if you weigh 125lbs. You would divided the number of pounds by two (125/2) and 64.5 is how many ounces would be recommended that you drink daily. Drinking water throughout the day is very important to maintain proper hydration but drinking water before bed seems to keep your sinuses in check and clear throughout the night into the early morning.
Vaporizers may be purchased in almost any department store or pharmacy. Typically, you have to use remedies such as menthol and eucalyptus with the vaporizers (in the water). Solutions may be bought where the vaporizers are sold. Cool Air Mister –Cool Air Misters add water and moisture to the air; you usually fill them with water. These are good for very dry areas of the house or basements. Cool air misters must be constantly filled with fresh water, and the filters must be changed for maximum benefits. Other Sinus Remedies
