How the Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic can help you with Sinusitis.
If you are looking for help with chronic sinusitis, join the club. It’s the very large club. Each year nearly 35 million Americans visit doctors, hoping for relief from one or more symptoms of sinusitis: clogged nose with thick yellow or green nasal drainage, persistent cough especially at night, severe dull, constant headache and pain or pressure in specific areas in the face, a decrease in the ability to smell odors. Beside that it can be chronic sore throat, nasal blockage, postnasal drip, fever, and fatigue.
Sometimes called “sinus attacks,” sinusitis may be acute (lasting for four weeks or less); chronic (lasting for four to 12 weeks or for years); or recurrent (attacks return several times within one year).
Most cases of sinusitis do follow the common cold, but a cold doesn’t cause the symptoms of sinusitis. Rather, it often sets the stage for sinusitis to develop. Fungal infections, chronic inflammation of the nasal passages caused by allergies, asthma, Candida –yeast overgrow or other conditions, structural problems, and a weakened immune system can also cause sinusitis.
Recurrent doses of antibiotics can cause temporally relief, but in many cases destroy friendly intestinal flora in the gut what can lead to Candida – yeast overgrow. This, in turn, weakens the immune system, causes resistance to antibiotics and makes the condition chronic.
If you are seeking help, you can try our natural holistic approach for sinusitis.
At Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic of San Francisco Bay Area, we customize a unique combination of acupuncture, cupping, point massage, breathing exercises, herbal steam inhalation, herbal balsamic nasal application, herbs, supplements to open nasal passages, decrease the sensitivity to allergen, and reduce congestion, inflammation, infection, pain and stress.
Acupuncture for Sinusitis.
Practiced for over 5000 years in various Asian cultures, acupuncture has finally made its way to the Western world. In 1979 the World health Organization listed 40 diseases for which acupuncture was considered to be beneficial and diseases of the respiratory tract including sinusitis, allergies and asthma. We at Biotherapy clinic use different styles of acupuncture such as traditional Chinese, Japanese scalp, Russian ear lobe, Korean Su-Jok (hand/foot) and more. For young children or for people which afraid of needles we use needle free acupuncture. Instead of pricking the skin we use magnetic point massage, apply the seeds, magnetic pellets, plasters on acupuncture points or ear lobe that works according to the same principle as acupuncture, using the same Chinese points on the meridians.
Acupuncture is often quite successful at clearing the sinuses and relieving nasal congestion, pressure and pain. Using thin needles, the acupuncturist will apply light stimulation to various points on the face, arm, and lower legs to activate a number of organs and systems, including the adrenal glands, the immune system, the lungs, and the nerves that normalize the blood flow to the lining of the sinus cavities. Patients with severe pain may be helped during the first treatment; chronic problems take longer. Expect at least six to eight sessions of acupuncture for chronic symptoms.
During our acupuncture session you will be introduced to cupping. Cupping is an ancient Chinese practice in which a cup is applied to the skin and the pressure in the cup is reduced so that the skin and superficial muscle layer is drawn into and held in the cup. In some cases, the cup may be moved while the suction of skin is active, causing a regional pulling of the skin and muscle. The cupping is widely used as home treatment even for young children in many European countries.
Cupping increases lymph blood circulation, diminishes sensitivity to allergen, decreases the level of lung toxicity, improves the activity of your immune system and opens the congested bronchial passages.
The research work “Therapeutic action of suction cups on human immune systems” was conducted by Peter Melamed Lic.Ac, Ph.D as a part of his scientific study in the medical school in Russia. Conclusions: cupping increases the immune activity of leucocytes (phagocytosis) in 50% of the cases.
For inflammation, congestion and allergy we use also the different kind of Herbal Medicine such as herbal vapor inhalation, herbal rinse, herbal tea and herbal formulas. Our unique herbal balsamic nasal application makes the “dirty” congested stuff come out, cleanse the nasal discharges, and suppresses the infection.
When the discharges have got clear or watery, we use a combination of natural anti-histamines and immune boosting supplements such as:
We will teach you the special breathing exercises that will facilitate the release of the inflamed, congested, solid mucous discharges out and cleanse your lungs and sinuses.
We support your body with nutritional supplements that include vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, natural antihistamines, and natural antimicrobial and antifungal remedies.
70-80% of sinusitis sufferers have allergy problems (some don’t even realize it). The foods you eat can boost your immune system and prevent symptoms. People with allergies may also have sensitivity to certain foods. To find out which foods aggravate symptoms of allergies in a particular individual, an elimination-and-challenge diet is recommended. This diet involves the removal of suspected foods from the diet for at least a week followed by systematic re-introduction of those foods in order to isolate the foods that may aggravate certain symptoms. It might be done during the Healing Food Consultation under the guidance of our health professional.
Many people with chronic sinusitis underwent many treatments with antibiotics which influenced with their ecology within and kill the friendly intestinal flora. This, in turn, causes Candida – yeast overgrow, suppresses the immune system and usually makes the condition chronic. Whole Body Cleansing with Colon Hydrotherapy and Restoration of Friendly Intestinal Flora are very effective way back to health.
