Chronic sinusitis can literally ruin your life. Despite it only being in a small section of your body (your nasal sinuses), it has wide-ranging effects and can really make you feel unwell and miserable. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine is one of the best cures for sinusitis infections.
Sinusitis is inflammation of the sinus cavities resulting in pressure, pain and congestion. Chronic sinusitis is when you have consistently had the problem for more than 2 weeks. Some people have sinusitis for years.
The main symptoms of sinusitis and sinus nasal congestion are facial pressure, nasal congestion, pain and thick yellow mucus. The secondary symptoms of chronic sinusitis can include dizziness, headache, depression, brain fog, coughing, tiredness, balance problems, eyesight problems, aching teeth, post-nasal drip, loss of sense of smell and taste and a general feeling of being unwell.
There are a range of Western medicine treatments used for sinusitis. Almost all treat the symptom only, not the root cause of the problem. So if you stop the treatment, the problems will often come back. Let’s look at the main treatment options.
If you have chronic sinusitis and have had scans and you having nothing particularly wrong structurally or you are tired of taking drugs to try to manage your sinusitis, then Chinese medicine is a highly effective form of treatment.
The combination of acupuncture and Chinese herbs is a highly effective way to treat both the symptoms and the root cause of your sinusitis. We can give you symptom relief while at the same time treating the root cause. When the root cause is fixed you should no longer have the symptoms.
Acupuncture directly increases the blood flow to your sinuses and actively drains them. Even at your first acupuncture treatment, you will feel your sinuses draining and opening up. Chinese herbs reduce congestion, drain mucus and reduce heat and inflammation.
We’ll also provide guidance on what foods to avoid so you don’t aggravate your condition and to speed up recovery.
By treating the root cause of the problem, associated problems like headaches, tiredness, brain fog and general unwellness should improve substantially.
Our objective is to provide long-lasting relief from sinus pain, pressure, congestion and mucus plus to eliminate all associated health problems. Many of our patients have reported dramatic improvements in their sinusitis after a series of treatments.
We need to see you for an initial appointment as we have to take your pulse to diagnose you properly. But we can also treat many patients with Chinese herbs only and can run most additional consultations over the phone and post herbs out to you.
Book in for an initial appointment. We will diagnose you fully and also treat you with acupuncture. The style of acupuncture we use means that in many cases we are able to reduce your pain immediately (although a series of treatments will be required to keep the pain away). Even at this first treatment you should feel your sinuses opening up. If we can do this while you are here at your first appointment, it means what we do will work for you and you can confidently continue with treatment.
If your sinusitis is really bothering you and affecting your life, book in for an initial appointment. You will soon know if we can help you or not and be on your way to feeling much better and getting on with your life.
