Sinus Cure and Sinus Irrigation and a Suggested System

Sinus irrigation is the main component in my personal arsenal to battle sinusitis and sinus infections. While struggling with numerous sinus infections a number of years ago, I ran across a book by Dr. Murray Grossan entitled 'The Sinus Cure- 7 Simple Steps'. This book explained the pulsating nasal irrigation system that I now use every day and have for a number of years. The book is a great resource for people suffering from sinusitis.

This is the Easiest Way to Start, as You Have Everything Needed

If the system works well and you want to continue to do nasal irrigation on a daily basis, I would suggest choosing the pack of one dozen saline solution boxes, as the price is lower per box and there is only one Ignorance is bliss, is it? Isn't it better to learn more than not to know about something like Nasal Sinus. So we have produced this article so that you can learn more about it! Wink

When I First Started Following Dr

Grossan's advice he suggested using a WaterPik machine, and these have been sold for years as devices to improve gum and dental health. Dr. Writing is something that has to be done when one is in the mood to write. So when we got in the mood to write about Sinus Cure, nothing could stop us from writing!

Original Throat Irrigator Tips', Breathe-ease' XL Nasal Moisturizer (this is the saline solution), and excerpts from "The Sinus Cure" by Dr. Grossan. A rolling stone gathers no moss. So if I just go on writing, and you don't understand, then it is of no use of me writing about Nasal Irrigation! Whatever written should be understandable by the reader.

Grossan's company simply sold an adaptor and a saline solution, although one can use normal table salt. Although much more expensive than table salt, I find that the saline solution is convenient, works well, and has no preservatives. I usually purchase a dozen containers at a time, and these will last up to a year with one application per day. One simply puts a spoonful of saline solution into the WaterPik tank and then about 16 oz. of warm water to dissolve the powder. The nasal adaptor is then put into one nose plugged every morning will gently propel half the liquid through one's nasal canal, and it will drain out the other side. One then puts the adaptor in the other nostril and repeats the procedure on that side. This process is done while leaning over a sink. I then normally put more water into the tank and use the WaterPik on my teeth as it was originally intended, and I've helped my gum and dental health as well. My dental hygienist has made several comments about how much better my gums and teeth are when I go in for cleanings, so there is a definite side benefit to this procedure. The whole effort only takes about 5 minutes or so, including wiping everything dry. I normally do the irrigation once a day about an hour before bed, but if I happen to wake up with more than the usual congestion in the morning, I'll do it then as well.

Shipping Charge to Pay

Of course one could still purchase a WaterPik at a retail store and buy the Dr. Grossan's adaptor and saline solution to work with it. In fact I continue to do this in order to use the device on my teeth and gums since it works so well. Every year or so the WaterPik needs to be replaced. I suspect that the salt has a corrosive effect, although I rinse the machine with fresh water immediately after each use. The WaterPik company even sells a small travel model, and I use one of those when on the road. Shocked


The gastro esophageal reflux disease with acid turns in the esophagus is being associated with many american conservatory theater in children but also in some cases of chronic sinusitis in adults. In a clinical study more than 4% of the children suffering from GERD had sinus damages, and about 63% of children with sinusitis had GERD. Some specialists see the gastro esophageal reflux as normal in children and deny its significance for upper respiratory diseases.




  • The acute sinusitis, an invasive condition affecting especially patients with diabetes and persons with weaken immune system 2.
  • Chronic sinus infection mostly found in northern India
  • An allergic sinusitis due to an inflammatory response to Aspergillus, causing nasal obstruction and bone erosion.
  • Fungal sinusitis usually appears in persons with a weak immune system, such as patients suffering from AIDS, leukemia or diabetes.



Mycetoma, known as the 'fungus ball' generally appears in only one sinus cavity especially the maxillary sinus. It is non-invasive and easy to treat Dwelving into the interiors of Sinus has led us to all this information here on Sinus. Sinus do indeed have a lot to tell!Discovering out the remedies of Sinus has led us to all this information here on Sinus. Sinus do indeed have a lot to tell!

Haemophylus Influenza Strongly Associated With Many Respiratory Conditions

Almost ' of children under two years are colonized by it and approximately 25% develop sinusitis. Also 22-35% of adults with sinusitis have positive results to H. Influenza tests. It was with keen interest that we got about to writing on Sinusitis Cases. Hope you read and appreciate it with equal interest.

Most Common Infectious Cause for Sinusitis is the Next Bacteria:

1. Streptococcus pneumonia in about 20-43% of the cases of sinusitis, adults and children We have also translated parts of this composition into French and Spanish to facilitate easier understanding of Chronic Sinusitis. In this way, more people will get to understand the composition. Idea



  • Sinusitis causing fungus is Aspergillus, the most common, Curvularia, Bipolaris, Mucormycosis, Exseohilum, Metarrhlizzium anisopliae.
  • Four forms of allergic fungal sinusitis are known:



Some anaerobic bacteria like Peptostreptococcus and Fusobacterium prevotella are common in around 88% of chronic sinusitis. Fungal chronic sinusitis occupy about 6-8% of the chronic sinus inflammation sinuses infections. Aiming high is our motto when writing about any topic. In this way, we tend to add whatever matter there is about Sinus Cavity, rather than drop any topic.

Moraxella Catharallis Causes about 25% of the Sinus Infection Cases

4. Staphylococcus aureus 5. Other stems of streptococcus Allergic fungal sinusitis covers about 5-10% of the sinusitis cases and researchers make constant studies to find the right methods of diagnose and therapy. As it plays an important role in the appearance of chronic sinusitis, fungal sinusitis is more seen as an immune affection.


Does Nasal Irrigation Help Chronic Sinusitis?





We often dismiss sinus congestions and discomforts as nothing and leave the problem untreated, thinking that they would go away on their own. Unfortunately, this is what causes the issue to aggravate. Not taking care of ourselves during a sinus attack will only make the problem so much worse, which could eventually lead to a greater issue involving sinus surgery. Therefore, whenever we encounter even the slightest symptoms of sinusitis, we should seek to nip the problem at the bud.

Try Other Alternatives

More and more people are turning to alternative medicine, instead of the usual over the counter drugs. In China, for instance, the Magnolia Flower, is being used a cure for nasal congestion and clogging. Chrysanthemum, Angelica and Mint have also been found to be effective against upper respiratory tract problems and pains. These alternatives have no scientific backing, however, but those who have turned to them have already sworn to their effectiveness. We have not included any imaginary or false information on Sinus Surgery here. Everything here is true and up to the mark! Embarassed

Irrigate Your Nasal Passageways

Allergen particles, like bacteria, dust, pollen and others are washed off when a nasal rinse is done because it cleans out our mucus membranes and prevents the formation of more bacteria. The purpose of the mucus on our faces is to fight infections and, thereby, eliminate the incidence of sinusitis. Over the counter medications and nasal irrigation products are available and most have been found to be very effective. To know if a particular nasal irrigation product is fit for you, consult an ear, nose and throat doctor. Using our imagination has helped us create a wonderful article on Nasal Congestion. Being imaginative is indeed very important when writing about Nasal Congestion!

Use Hot and Cold Compress

Alternating hot and cold compress applied to your sinus area will help relieve sinus pains. Use the hot compress against your face for around three minutes and follow with a cold compress for about thirty seconds, alternating. Repeat as needed and do so at least six times day, depending on your sinus complaints.

However, if the sinusitis has bloated to uncontrollable levels, you will be subjected to sinus surgery. This procedure is not exactly painful and may only take a while, but it can take quite a toll on your pocket, especially given the fact the sinusitis often starts at a very minor and curable point. Smile

Breathe in Warm, Moist Air

Humidified air is best to help unclog congested nasal passaeways. You may use a humidifier or a steam vaporizer to do this. If these are not available, you can still declog your nose the cheaper way by inhaling the steam from a basin of hot water, or by taking a hot shower. Evil or Very Mad

There are several treatments and preventive measures you can do at home in order for you to avoid the bigger financial and physical pain of going into sinus surgery. We enumerate several of them here. Even the beginner will get to learn more about Sinuses after reading this article. It is written in easy language so that everyone will be able to understand it.

As said earlier, not all the above methods are surefire ways to treat sinus congestions and its permutations, especially if you have left the problem untreated and unattended for a very long time. If this happens and none of the recommendations prove useful, you should then head to your ear, nose and throat specialist to determine the best options. Suppressing our knowledge on Sinus Surgery is not our intention here. In fact, we mean to let everyone know more about Sinus Surgery after reading this!

Taking Sinus Medications

There are certain medications that work very effectively against nasal problems, but most of them are designed to address the aches and pains that go with it. Such drugs include naproxen, acetaminophen, mefenamic acid, aspiring, paracetamol and ibuprofen, among others. Just make sure that you're not allergic to these drugs before you take them. This is a dependable source of information on Sinus. All that has to be done to verify its authenticity is to read it!

Nasal irrigation or nasal lavage is technique of hydrotherapy whereby one is able to completely and thoroughly wash out the nasal passages and sinuses. It is totally safe and it is very effective. So effective in fact, if you were to do absolutely nothing else for your sinuses, this one technique could still radically alter your health for the better.

The absence of the above irrigation implements, one can still irrigate the nose by preparing an appropriate mixture of salinated water into a cupped hand and snorting it into each nostril. We were actually wondering how to get about to writing about Neti Pot. However once we started writing, the words just seemed to flow continuously!

The preceding, you were introduced to the methods and implements of nasal irrigation, now we need to discuss just what constitutes an appropriate salinated mixture. Before discussing the preparation that you can make yourself, I highly recommend purchasing premixed saline for solution, which is typically PH balanced for the human body and leaves no room for error as there is no guesswork in measurement. In particular, I recommend a product called Breathe-Ease XL above all else.

You see, if you have chronic sinusitis, chances are good that you have damaged cilia from all of the previous infection. (Cilia are the small hairlike structures that move debris and mucous out of the sinuses and nasal passages.) If you have damaged cilia or impaired ciliary function, your sinuses are not able to clean themselves effectively. Thus, mucous and debris (pollen, dust, dander, etc.) buildup in your sinuses and nasal passages and increase the inflammation and block the sinus openings. Do not judge a book by its cover; so don't just scan through this matter on Nasal Irrigation. read it thoroughly to judge its value and importance.

You may also choose to produce some saline solution for moistening the nasal passages throughout the day and to rinse away pollen and other irritants. You can purchase small spray bottles for the nose at most drug stores. Simply fill the bottle with the above suggested saline preparation. Be sure to change the mixture out daily as well as to wash your spray bottle so as to prevent bacterial buildup. It is with much interest that we got about to write on Sinus. So we do hope that you too read this article with the same, if not more interest!

Regarding appropriate irrigation technique, the head should be tilted forward over a sink such that when you irrigate one nostril the fluid pours from the other nostril. You should keep your mouth open and try not to swallow while irrigating. For specific irrigation instructions, see the package insert of whichever of the above products you choose for your irrigation purposes. Evil or Very Mad



  • With pulsatile irrigation, one uses a machine designed just for this purpose such as the Grossan Hydro Pulse (shown below).
  • There are other forms of manual irrigation that work quite well also.
  • One is the traditional Neti pot, which has been used by Indian yogis for centuries to keep the nasal passages and sinuses clean.
  • In this method, one takes an implement similar in appearance to a small tea pot (see photo below) and pours salinated water through each nostril.
  • The method is very gentle and recommended in the absence of pulsatile irrigation.



You can Easily Prepare Your Own Saline Solution for Nasal Irrigation

To do so, you will need non-iodized table salt (some people are allergic to iodine and over time it will irritate the sinuses) and baking soda. Mix 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1 pinch of baking soda into 8 ounces of warm (not cold and not hot!) water. Stir thoroughly to allow the salt and baking soda to completely dissolve. Irrigate with one of the above methods. It is rather interesting to note that people like reading about Sinuses if they are presented in an easy and clear way. The presentation of an article too is important for one to entice people to read it!



  • Preferable to utilizing a generic bulb syringe however, is the Nasaline nasal irrigator.
  • The Nasaline irrigator consists of a two ounce syringe with a specialized silicone tip designed specifically for nasal irrigation. Embarassed



The most beneficial form of nasal irrigation is that of pulsatile nasal irrigation. Pulsatile irrigation is a mechanical method of irrigation in which a gentle stream of salinated water is directed through the nasal passages in pulses. This pulsation effectively simulates (and stimulates) ciliary motion, which is often impaired in those with chronic sinusitis. A rolling stone gathers no moss. So if I just go on writing, and you don't understand, then it is of no use of me writing about Nasal Passages Sinuses! Whatever written should be understandable by the reader.

Nasal irrigation steps in for the damaged cilia and does their job for them by removing the debris. In fact, one form of nasal irrigation actually simulates ciliary movement with its pulsatile action and subsequently this stimulates ciliary function such that it may be encouraged toward improvement. There are several forms of nasal irrigation, not all equally effective, though all beneficial. Choose a method most convenient for you-one that you will stick with and utilize at least once daily (twice is better!) for the long haul. It is always better to have compositions with as little corrections in it as possible. This is why we have written this composition on Sinus with no corrections for the reader to be more interested in reading it.
