Notes for the live video 🙂
The sinus are cavities in the skull, found on either side of the nose, between the eyebrow and above on the forhead. They usually have a thin layer of mucus and are hollow. .
Acute sinistus is when have a “head cold” and the sinuses become mucous filled and inflammed as the body works to clear out infection; be that bacterial, viral, fungal and usally resolves in a day or 2 sometimes as long as a week
Chronic sinusitis comes and goes for months sometimes years on end and can cause quite debiliating headaches as fluid in the sinus builds up. Chronic sinusitis can be bacterial, fungal, allergy driven, enviromental (dust pollen), poor gut health such as candida overgrowth.
To heal from sinusitis we want to decrease inflammation and get rid of the triggers, working WITH the body. Nasal sprays while they bring relief can cause damage to the mucous membrane and become less and less effective the more damage that is doen.
We want to restore the mucous membrane, decrease the inflamatioin, decrease or remove the need for medication, and get rid of any triggers be they virus, bacteria fungi or sensitivities to foods and enviroment.
