Sinusitis Definition:Sinusitis is an inflammation, or swelling, of the tissue lining the sinuses. Normally, sinuses are filled with air, but when sinuses become blocked and filled with fluid, germs (bacteria, viruses, and fungi) can grow and cause an infection.
Sinusitis can be caused by common cold, nasal polyps, or allergic rhinitis. Allergies to either environmental, food, or seasonal allergies can be a trigger. Most commonly people have allergies to change in seasons and a rise in pollen count, have undiagnosed food or environmental allergies that spark sinusitis symptoms.
Sinusitis symptoms include: sinus pain and pressure, nasal stuffiness, nasal discharge, can have loss of smell, cough/congestion. Some people often have sinus headache, ear pain, and low energy.
Acupuncture and naturopathic medicine are effective treatment methods for reducing sinus pain and sinusitis symptoms.
Acupuncture can help reduce inflammation in the nasal passage, decrease headache, ear or sinus pain, and work to boost the immune system. Therefore, working to find the root cause of sinusitis to prevent recurrent episodes to get you breathing easier.
Natural therapies such as using food as medicine, avoiding known allergy foods, getting proper allergy testing, and specific detox or nutrition protocols maybe helpful in reducing symptoms.
At Starting Point Acupuncture in Bothell, WA, we offer a wide range of treatments for sinusitis including finding the root cause of symptoms, and treatments such as allergy shots, and specific allergy-ease supplements.
