  • Rhinitis

    Rhinitis is a horrible sounding name for a very common problem. Chances are good that you have had rhinitis if you have had sneezes and sniffles. There are 3 types: viral rhinitis (the common cold), nonallergic rhinitis, and allergic rhinitis. Many of the aggravating symptoms are the same, and prevention and avoidance is key to dealing with all three types. However, long-lasting symptoms must not be taken lightly since they can lead to complications such as asthma, sinusitis, and skin conditions. Continue reading

    Tips To Diagnose, Treat, & Prevent Sinus Infections

    If you have never had a sinus headache, you are very lucky. Inflammation of these holes in your head can cause painful, throbbing misery. Even your teeth can hurt. (Some of you are shouting "amen" right about now.) Usually your sinuses are 4 pairs of cavities that make your skull lighter, insulate your skull, allow your voice to resonate, and help warm and humidify the air you breathe. They are lined with mucous and tiny hair-like cilia. The problem occurs when bacteria or fungus grows along your sinus linings, a virus or allergen invades, or a physical irregularity exists. The sinuses become irritated, inflamed, and swollen, and the pressure causes your head to feel like it is going to explode from the inside out. Let's look at some things that can help you diagnose, treat, and (best of all) avoid sinusitis. Continue reading

    A Firsthand Experience
    Last week, I accompanied my sister and her son on their trip to the allergist. Because so many doctors trust National Allergy with their patients, I thought it would be important for me to hear how doctors are interacting with and advising their patients so we can do our job better. I also figured that going on a doctor visit would be a great way to step into the shoes of so many of you who are making frequent visits to the allergist looking for answers. Continue reading

  • Nasal Irrigation

    How Does The Nose Trap Particles?

    Your nose is designed to filter air as you breathe. The areas in and around the nose are lined with a delicate tissue called mucosa that contains tiny hairs called cilia. Nationally-renowned ENT specialist and nasal irrigation expert Dr. Murray Grossan explains that "these wonderful machines [cilia] act like oars, moving 16 strokes each second to propel bacteria, dirt, and cancer-causing poisons out of the nose and chest, before they have a chance to enter the body." Instead, these particles are pushed by mucosa to the back of the throat where they are swallowed and destroyed by the acids in the stomach. Problems can occur when this system becomes impaired, either because nasal and sinus secretions stagnate, or because the nose produces too much mucous as a result of bacteria, dirt or allergens impeding the cilia movement.

    Chronic Sinusitis

    Facts, Causes Of Acute Sinusitis, Chronic Sinusitis

    Some Basic Facts About Sinusitis

    For anyone who has experience sinusitis, it is a miserable experience. Sinusitis is the inflammation of the sinus cavity. Your sinuses are the openings in the bones around your nose. Everyone has four pairs of sinuses that are connected to the nasal cavity by small openings. They are lined with the same type of membranes that line the inside of the nose, and when they are working properly, air flows in and out of the sinuses and fluid and mucous drains from the sinuses into the nose. Inflammation of one or more of the cavities inhibits this process so the mucous and membranes become infected and sinusitis results.
    nl45g1-1There are two general types of sinusitis - acute sinusitis and chronic sinusitis. The main difference between acute and chronic sinusitis is the frequency and length of infection. Acute sinusitis happens sporadically, lasts only a few weeks, and often follows a respiratory infection such as a cold. Chronic sinusitis is defined as sinus inflammation that persists for two months or longer. Although acute sinusitis symptoms are often more severe, sufferers of chronic sinusitis run a higher risk of sinus tissue damage. Continue reading
