Homeopathy Make you free from Sinus Problem



Homeopathy for Sinus

The term sinus means a hollow or a pocket. This word can be used to refer to

cavities in many parts of the body, such as the renal sinus, the mastoid sinus or an aorticsinus. However, sinus generally
refers to the paranasal sinuses, which lie close to the

nose. The most important sinuses lie above and below the eye sockets and behind thebridge of the nose. They are lined by a moisture

-

producing mucous membrane. The

purpose of the sinuses is to help mo

isturize the air we breathe.

There are four

types of paranasal

sinuses: frontal, ethmoid,

sphenoid and maxillary as

shown in figure.

Infections in them can

block normal nasal

drainage.

Sinusitis is an

inflammation or infection

of the air pockets on

either

side of and behind

the nose. It can be caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi (molds) and possibly by allergies.

Usually sinusitis follows a respiratory infection such as common cold, or flu. Allergic

patients may get this on contact with the specific allerge

n/substance to which they are

hyper sensitive.

Acute sinusitis is much more common in certain patients than in the general

population. Chronic sinusitis refers to inflammation of the sinuses that continues for at

least 3 weeks, but often continues for months or even years.

Patients with asthma have a particularly high frequency of chronic sinusitis.

Inhalation of airborne allergens (substances that provoke an allergic reaction), such as

dust, mold, and pollen, often set off allergic reactions (allergic rhin

itis) that, in turn, may

contribute to sinusitis. People who are allergic to fungi can develop a condition called

"allergic fungal sinusitis."

Damp weather, especially in northern temperate climates, or pollutants in the air

and in buildings also can affec

t people subject to chronic sinusitis.

Symptoms

The most common site of sinusitis is the ethmoid sinuses, which typically occurs

as a result of obstruction of mucociliary drainage, which then causes a secondary

maxillary sinusitis. Sinusitis involving the

sphenoid sinus typically is unusual for children

under age 5 and frontal sinusitis typically does not occur until age 10, as a result of later

development of those sinuses in children.

Sinusitis (infection of sinuses) may have a variety of symptoms, dep

ending on

which sinus and nasal passages are involved. There may be nasal discharge (yellowish or

greenish), perhaps containing pus; headaches; pain in the cheeks, eye area, ear, or teeth;

dizziness and possibly a cough.

If the infection is severe, the pa

tient may also experience fever, a general sick

feeling, and such general discomfort that he will have difficulty in concentrating.

Sinusitis can also results from an infection that has spread from a nearby part of

the body, such as an abscessed tooth, or

following an extraction of tooth.

Diagnosis

Evaluation is by history and physical examination. Blood tests for blood count

may be done in special cases.

X

-

rays of the sinuses can show characteristic changes

associated with this infection. Culture of the

sinus drainage can yield information on the

type of infection. Patients who have an uncertain diagnosis may have a CT scan

performed of the sinuses.
