Why Antibiotics Are Not The Answer For Sinus Treatment
The cold and flu season keeps getting longer, because people keep getting sick.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, 30.7 million Americans get sinus infections every year – roughly 14 percent of the population – and it accounts for nearly 13 million doctor’s visits and 1.4 million trips to the emergency room.
“It’s not uncommon to get a sinus infection in January, treat it with antibiotics, get another one in March, treat it with antibiotics, and then get another one in May,” said Dr. Murray Grossan, author of Free Yourself from Sinus and Allergy Problems – Permanently from Hydro Med, Inc. (www.drgrossan.com), and an expert in sinus infections. “The problem isn’t our resistance to the new strains, but rather not getting the nasal cilia to remove bacteria. The reason so many persons have one infection after another is that their nasal cilia were not treated. As long as the nasal cilia remain stagnant bacteria multiply and you get more infection.”
Dr. Grossan’s concern is that the most common treatment method is to throw antibiotics at the infection after the fact, when preventing the infection, and the persistent re-infection, is the key to staying healthy.
“Sinus disease and Allergy are worse today, despite drugs,” Dr. Grossan said. “Study after study shows that antibiotics for sinus disease are as effective as placebo; but with placebo you don’t get the terrible side effects of antibiotics.
Keep in mind, most every airborne bacterium enters our system through our noses, and the first line of defense is the nasal cilia. Keeping them healthy and restoring them after an infection is the key to preventing sinus infections.”
He further explained that nasal cilia pulse and move bacteria and pollen out of the nose and sinuses. If cilia are inactive, bacteria remain in place and cause sinus disease. This book deals with the ideal and easy method you can use of restoring nasal cilia. With good cilia, according to Dr. Grossan, you don’t need antibiotics.
“You wash your hands to get rid of bacteria and dirt. Why not do the same for your nose and sinus?” Dr. Grossan said. “It is proven that antibiotic sprays don’t work. It is proven that antibiotic nebulizers don’t work. Yet these are the treatments used today, which results in more drug resistant bacteria. Certain surgical procedures can result in the disaster of Empty Nose Syndrome – a person can be crippled for life. Makes sense to use methods to restore nasal cilia and AVOID surgery.”
He adds that you can get well with measures to remove bacteria, restore cilia function without harmful drugs or surgery. Some helpful tactics include:
* A simple procedure that can be done at home, called pulsatile irrigation, restores cilia, removes bacteria and pollen, and massages the nasal tissue to bring good white cells.
* Drinking good old fashioned tea with lemon and honey can restore nasal cilia
* Chicken soup isn’t a myth – it also helps restore nasal cilia
* Chanting “ooooommmm,” vibrates and pulsates the cilia, helping to restore them and make them healthy
* Mental relaxation increases natural healing. . Relaxation and smiling raises all immune factors and reduces inflammation. This book shows you how.
“As antibiotics become less and less effective in treating infection because the new bacterial strains are becoming more and more resistant to those drugs, it’s important for us to take steps to prevent infection,” Dr. Grossan said. “So, if people can follow these simple tips, they’ll discover they’ll be more resistant to sinus infections, and live healthier lives.”
