Nasal Irrigation - Recurring Sinus Infection - an Explanation?As part of our efforts to probiotics is one of the most effective cures of sinusitis sufferers, a gentleman named Carlton contributed a 'Asthma and sinusitis are painful illnesses but treatment is available that could end your suffering' story.
Had 2 Different Allergy Tests, Both NegativeThe Mayo/U. of Buffalo research says this is not an allergic reaction like a pollen allergy, so it wouldn't show up in an allergy test. It's an over reaction to fungus by T-cells that damage the sinus lining and gives bacteria a place to grow. Most people have no reaction, but most people with chronic sinus do. Apparently there is a test, but ENT's are skeptical. Mine said the fungus idea was false and suggested surgery. If I was cynical, I might think his opinion was because there's no surgical solution.
Asked Carlton in a follow-up email if he had tested positive for fungi in previous allergy tests, and here is his response: 'Hello Walt: We consider that we have only touched the perimeter of information available on Sinus Symptoms. There is still a lot more to be learnt!
- Start using pulsating nasal irrigation to cleanse the nose of crusty old mucus which could be carrying toxins. 2.
- Test your environment to see if you are exposed to high levels of fungus.
- Perhaps you may not have been interested in this passage on Sinus Infection.
- In that case, please don't spread this feedback around!
'Jens Panikau, sinus researcher at Mayo Clinic, has published a new finding that explains why sinus disease persists despite so many new drugs. Dr Panikau found that the main cause of sinus symptoms was that the eosinophiles ' your special cells that defend your body against infection, - get into the mucus and produce a toxic product called MBP that is made in order to kill bacteria. Unfortunately, among sinus sufferers, there is an excess of this MBP in the mucus that also damages the cells of the nose and impairs its ability to sweep bacteria out of the nose. Dr Panikau shows that it is the MBP that makes the patient sick, with fever, pain, fatigue, and secondary infections.' Perfection has been achieved in this article on Sinus Disease. There is hardly any matter left from this article that is worth mentioning.Perfection has been achieved in this article on Sinus Disease. There is hardly any matter left from this article that is worth mentioning.
Anyone who suffers from recurring sinus infection issues and who cannot find adequate relief after treatment by an otolaryngologist or after unsuccessful surgery are urged to do what Carlton has done:
If the tests are positive for fungus, try to improve your environment to lower the amount of fungus you are exposed to. There are numerous books and articles which address this subject. If there is the slightest possibility of you not getting to understand the matter that is written here on Sinus Disease, we have some advice to be given. Use a dictionary!
He pointed out a study conducted by the Mayo clinic and the American university of Buffalo addressing the issue of recurring sinus infection. It states that "chronic sinusitis is an immune disorder caused by fungus." This article serves as a representative for the meaning of Sinus Treatment in the library of knowledge. Let it represent knowledge well.
I'll Let You Know How It Goes, but So Far, I Feel Much BetterCarlton' Huge Implications in the Study Results There are huge implications in this study for those who suffer from recurring sinus infection. This work could lead to treatments that treat the root cause of the problem for the first time. Slang is one thing that has not been included in this composition on Chronic Sinusitis. It is because slang only induces bad English, and loses the value of English.
Another article in the Health Solutions Newsletter of Sept 2005 also referred to the Mayo Clinic/U. of Buffalo study and adds further clarification. Their article was entitled 'Mayo Clinic Announces Startling New Sinus Discovery' We needed lots of concentration while writing on Sinus Treatment as the matter we had collected was very specific and important.
- This is leading edge stuff.
- Mayo received a patent on anti-fungal treatments.
- I decided to try this approach after everything else failed.
- I don't want surgery, because I've never heard of one that worked.
