Facts about Sinusitis

Paranasal sinuses are air-filled sacs present within the bones of the skull and face. These sinuses are located on either sides of the nasal cavity. There are four different types of paranasal sinuses in humans depending on their location. These include frontal, ethmoid, maxillary and sphenoid. All these types of sinuses are connected with the nose through narrow channels called ostia. Paranasal sinuses are helpful in providing shape to facial bones. However, the most important function of paranasal sinuses sinusitis act as a resonance box or a sponge and prevent echoes that may reverberate in the skull when a person speaks. Other important functions include proper circulation of air inside the skull providing an air-conditioning effect, making the skull light in weight and helping in pronouncing nasal consonants.

Inflammation in the mucous lining surrounding the nose results in formation of thick nasal discharge. When the infection spreads to sinus cavities, mucus is formed within the sinus that gets drained into the nose through narrow channels. As the mucus thickens, it blocks the sinus passage resulting in fluid and mucus accumulation inside the sinus, a condition termed as sinusitis. Sinusitis can occur as a result of an infection in the upper respiratory tract, dental sepsis or an ear infection. Other contributing factors include changes in atmospheric pressure, swimming, environmental pollutants, prolonged exposure to cold temperatures, a facial injury, allergies, asthma, nasal polyps, nasal deformities, cleft palate and adenoids.

Symptoms of sinusitis are nasal obstruction, swollen nasal passages, pain around the eyes and cheeks, thick nasal discharge that is yellow or green colored, facial swelling, puffiness around the eyes, and pus formation in the affected area, cold and cough with sore throat. Symptoms of sinusitis are predominantly present during early morning hours and gradually reduce in the afternoon. Also, conditions such as damp weather, sudden change in temperature and cough can aggravate sinusitis. As the information we produce in our writing on Sinus may be utilized by the reader for informative purposes, it is very important that the information we provide be true. We have indeed maintained this.

As part of our efforts to chronicle the experiences of sinusitis sufferers, a gentleman named Carlton contributed a 'Sinusitis Treatment Success' story.

I'll Let You Know How It Goes, but So Far, I Feel Much Better

Carlton' Huge Implications in the Study Results There are huge implications in this study for those who suffer from treating sinusitis and nose infections. This work could lead to treatments that treat the root cause of the problem for the first time. This is the counterpart to our previous paragraph on Nasal Irrigation. Please read that paragraph to get a better understanding to this paragraph.

'Jens Panikau, sinus researcher at Mayo Clinic, has published a new finding that explains why sinus disease persists despite so many new drugs. Dr Panikau found that the main cause of sinus symptoms was that the eosinophiles ' your special cells that defend your body against infection, - get into the mucus and produce a toxic product called MBP that is made in order to kill bacteria. Unfortunately, among sinus sufferers, there is an excess of this MBP in the mucus that also damages the cells of the nose and impairs its ability to sweep bacteria out of the nose. Dr Panikau shows that it is the MBP that makes the patient sick, with fever, pain, fatigue, and secondary infections.'

This is Leading Edge Stuff

Mayo received a patent on anti-fungal treatments. I decided to try this approach after everything else failed. I don't want surgery, because I've never heard of one that worked. It was with great optimism that we started out on writing this composition on Nasal Irrigation. Please don't let us lose this optimism.

Asked Carlton in a follow-up email if he had tested positive for fungi in previous allergy tests, and here is his response: 'Hello Walt: Patience was exercised in this article on Sinusitis. Without patience, it would not have been possible to write extensively on Sinusitis.




Had 2 Different Allergy Tests, Both Negative

The Mayo/U. of Buffalo research says this is not an allergic reaction like a pollen allergy, so it wouldn't show up in an allergy test. It's an over reaction to fungus by T-cells that damage the sinus lining and gives bacteria a place to grow. Most people have no reaction, but most people how to avoid sinusitis do. Apparently there is a test, but ENT's are skeptical. Mine said the fungus idea was false and suggested surgery. If I was cynical, I might think his opinion was because there's no surgical solution. Idea

Another article in the Health Solutions Newsletter of Sept 2005 also referred to the Mayo Clinic/U. of Buffalo study and adds further clarification. Their article was entitled 'Mayo Clinic Announces Startling New Sinus Discovery' We have alice lloyd college a certain pattern while writing on Sinus Disease. We have used simple words and sentences to facilitate easy understanding for the reader.



  • Start using pulsating nasal irrigation to cleanse the nose of crusty old mucus which could be carrying toxins. 2.
  • Test your environment to see if you are exposed to high levels of fungus.
  • If the tests are positive for fungus, try to improve your environment to lower the amount of fungus you are exposed to.
  • There are numerous books and articles which address this subject.




Anyone who suffers from recurring sinus infection issues and who cannot find adequate relief after treatment by an otolaryngologist or after unsuccessful surgery are urged to do what Carlton has done: Embarassed




  • He pointed out a study conducted by the Mayo clinic and the University of Buffalo addressing the issue of recurring sinus infection.
  • It states that "chronic sinusitis is an immune disorder caused by fungus."
