Tue, 13 Sep 2011 00:00:00 -0400If you are suffering from chronic nasal allergies, sinus infections and rhinitis, nasal irrigation is one way to deal with all your nasal problems. Stuffy nose, colds and congestion are always present during nasal infections, which means that the nasal passages are perpetually clogged. The nasal passages filter the bacteria coming into the nose, protecting the sinus cavities from infection.
Tue, 13 Sep 2011 00:00:00 -0400The sinuses are four sets of air-filled cavities in the skull. These cavities are ventilated through small openings called ostia (singular: ostium) which open into the nasal cavity. For a variety of reasons such as anatomic defects, reaction to any allergen or simple diseases like common colds, the sinus ostia may become blocked, allowing bacteria to be lodged in the obstructed sinus cavity. Under normal circumstances, tiny hair projections called cilia sweep away bacteria in the sinus cavity out through the nose.
Sat, 10 Sep 2011 00:00:00 -0400Sinusitis is now one of the most common health conditions in the United States, affecting almost 40 million Americans every year.

Sat, 10 Sep 2011 00:00:00 -0400Many cases of colds and allergies lead to sinusitis (inflammation of the paranasal sinuses) because bacteria that have been trapped in the nasal passages have gone beyond reaching the sinus region. Sinusitis is now one of the most common health conditions in the United States today.
Fri, 02 Sep 2011 00:00:00 -0400Sinus problems are often managed using various combinations of medications including expensive antibiotics, nasal corticosteroid sprays, decongestants and analgesics.

Wed, 31 Aug 2011 00:00:00 -0400Most people get over their infection within a week or so, but for some of us it never stops. That week turns into a month, sometimes longer, and it seems as soon as they get better it comes right back. This is known as a chronic sinus infection, and while the symptoms are similar to an acute sinus infection, they can be much worse.
Wed, 31 Aug 2011 00:00:00 -0400So you've just gotten over a nasty cold and are excited about getting back to life and back to work. You head to bed, but wake up the next morning and realize that it could be coming back. Nasal congestion, a sore throat and a throbbing headache welcome you to a new day and you realize that you may have an acute sinus infection. Chances are you've gone through something like that, as it is how most acute sinus infections form, shortly after you recover from a cold or the flu. Acute sinus infection symptoms can be annoying and aggravating, but luckily they are easily treated with easy home remedies.
Wed, 31 Aug 2011 00:00:00 -0400A sinus infection can be classified as acute sinusitis or chronic sinusitis. Acute sinusitis lasts for less than 4 weeks, while a chronic condition lasts for more than 12 weeks or ever longer.

Thu, 25 Aug 2011 00:00:00 -0400Nowadays, there are already different ways to deal with a sinus infection. Some people go for home treatment. In general, this involves doing measures at home to treat the symptoms. Usually this can be done through diet modifications. For one, experts recommend keeping off from milk and other dairy products. Milk has protein content that can apparently thicken nasal secretions. This can worsen the existing problem of nasal congestion because the production of mucus is dramatically increased in sinusitis.
Thu, 25 Aug 2011 00:00:00 -0400For a lot of people, the word 'sinus' brings to mind the air-filled cavities found in the skull. Humans have eight of them located behind the eyes, cheeks and forehead. When one or more of these sinuses become inflamed, a condition called sinusitis results. Among the manifestations of sinusitis include nasal congestion, headaches and facial pain; but normally not an increase in heart rate (medically called as tachycardia). So why the term sinus tachycardia then?
Thu, 18 Aug 2011 00:00:00 -0400Scientists and researchers in the field of medicine continue to spend time and resources to revolutionize treatment modalities for the many ailments and diseases that scourge people worldwide.

Wed, 17 Aug 2011 00:00:00 -0400A nasal infection often starts as an inflammation of nasal passages. However, unless it is immediately treated successfully, nasal infections often progress to involve even the paranasal sinuses. This condition involving the infection of both the nasal areas and paranasal sinuses is called as rhinosinusitis. Depending on its onset, it may be classified as acute or chronic. Acute infections occur suddenly, while chronic are long-term or recurring.

But for some unlucky few, sinusitis can be so severe it actually interferes with their daily routine. Because of the prevalence of this condition, many treatments were developed, as well as home remedies to fight the infection. However, these methods often do not offer a guarantee of a life free from sinusitis.
Thu, 04 Aug 2011 00:00:00 -0400Humans have four pairs of paranasal sinuses. These air-filled hollow cavities are located in several areas of the skull. They are lined by a mucous membrane and have orifices known as ostia that open into the nasal cavity. Each pair of sinus has its own name. The frontal sinuses are found above the eyes, in the forehead bone. The maxillary sinuses are situated in the cheekbones, under the eyes. On the other hand, the ethmoid sinuses are located between the eyes and the nose. Finally, there are the sphenoid sinuses which can be seen in the center of the skull, behind the nose and the eyes.
Wed, 03 Aug 2011 00:00:00 -0400Simply put, sinus irrigation is done by positioning the head sideways and then allowing water to enter one nostril and out of the other. In the process, debris, irritants, bacteria and other unwanted particles are washed away. This can be done by directly snorting plain water or saline water. Alternatively, needle-less bulb syringes or spray bottles can also be employed to deliver the irrigating solution into the sinuses.
Sun, 31 Jul 2011 00:00:00 -0400Sinusitis is a medical condition referring to the inflammation of the sinuses. For a lot of possible reasons, including reactions to certain physical or chemical irritants, the sinuses swell. The inflammation disrupts the normal drainage of mucus in the sinuses to the nose. This accumulation of mucus becomes a very suitable ground for the multiplication of bacteria, thus progressing to an episode of sinus infection. It is also possible that a nasal infection by bacteria or virus can progress to invade the sinuses as well.

Tue, 19 Jul 2011 00:00:00 -0400In medical terms, the suffix "-itis" is used to denote inflammation of a certain area of the body. "Rhino-" on the other hand, refers to the nose. Rhinitis, therefore, refers to the condition in which there is inflammation of the nasal mucosa. Most people actually think that rhinitis is the same as nasal allergies, but no, not quite. Not all cases of rhinitis are allergic in nature.
