Sinus Causes and Treatment
I will try to give my comments against each of the treatment options below –
The primary objectives for treatment of sinusitis are reduction of swelling, eradication of infection, draining of the sinuses, and ensuring that the sinuses remain open.
My comment on Reduction of Swelling – There is only one thing that is moves in the body and that is fluid. So the swelling could be caused only by fluids. So the first line of treatment should be reducing the fluids in the body. The easiest and nature friendly way of doing that is – dehydration for 24 to 36 hours. However extreme dehydration can also cause sinus. So if a person is drinking less than 2 litres of water on daily basis, he would do better by increasing water intake to about 2.5 to 3 litres a day for 1 day. On Day 2 he can dehydrate himself to get complete relief. More options to dehydrate on home page.
My comments on eradication of Infection – Antibiotics and Analgesics – These heat up the body – Dehydration for 24 hours to 48 hours heat up the body more than these medicines can do in 7 days. And there is no side effect of dehydration if done with some basic knowledge about the hydration system of the body.
My comments on draining the sinuses – If swelling and infections are removed than there remains nothing which holds back the cough in sinuses. Allow all the cough to leave your body completely. It may take upto 7 days.
Decongestants – a decongestant to help your sinuses drain. Decongestants are for short-term use. Should not be used beyond their recommended use, usually four to five days, or they may actually increase congestion. Click here to understand why decongestants are not recommended for children below 12 years of age. Decongestants are basically antihistamines which cause dehydration. Antihistamines are naturally found in the body. For some reason they stop working. So instead of making your natural antihistamines work, they pharma companies flood you with more antihistamines. What is this???? You are made to take medicine for dehydrating yourself. Are you gone made. Do you need pharma company’s medicines with dangerous side effects to dehydrate you. I think you can do better yourself. But what is this nonsense – Why they say that decongestants is not the cure. It simply helps to get rid of some of the matter. This is very confusing. Why you do not do some thing easier. read my comments below. Oh my God It seems that the above link is of UK govt health care system. So they must be very serious about the whole thing. But why are they not saying the things clearly. Some one seems to be holding them back.
My Comments on Decongestants – So you see the side effects. The decongestants cause congestion after 4-5 days. Why because you took additional antihistamine medicines. There there is excess antihistamine in your body. So the body starts removing the excess. Soon again your body gets on the lower side of the Antihistamines. To better understand this concept. Simply increase your water intake. After some time the body will reconfigure its systems to flush out the excess water. Now if you go back to your normal water intake, you will find that your water retention has disappeared. The body’s learning system is very fast. Normally it corrects itself in 24 hours. That is why a day is made of 24 hours. That is a complete body cycle system.
24 to 48 hours dehydration does not cause congestion after 4 days. 24 to 48 hours of dehydration will leave your sinuses completely dry even if you try not to clean them. There are no side effects.
Surgeries for Sinusitis:
My comments on surgery – Any type of surgery causes scar tissues. You can google on scar tissues or find more information on about.com. Scar tissues always cause problems with fluid management. 95% of the surgeries cause long term complications. You can read more about the complication of any surgery on google by searching for Open heart surgery side effects, kidney surgery side effects.
There is no disease on this earth which can not be cured within 24 hours. We need to explore this side of the science more than pharma companies do in spreading the false stories about their products.
