Sinus recommendations to reduce Sandy caused sinusitis
Many multiple elements from the Sandy disaster combine to make for an increase in sinus problems:
- Getting wet and chilled. In normal circumstances becoming wet lowers normal resistance to sinusitis and respiratory ills. In normal times even a short time of wetness may result in sinus disease. With Sandy, the extended exposure to cold water has subjected persons to this element that causes sinusitis. The cold slows nasal cilia function and this allows bacteria to remain in the nose/sinuses and multiply.
- Mold in the house. Mold and mold spores are known to be factors to cause sinus problems. These slow nasal cilia movement and allow infections. Mold harms by contact and allergy as well.
- Stress reduces resistance to illness
- Poor sleep is a known factor in reducing resistance to illness.
Hydro Med Recommends:
If possible, dry out the house to reduce mold infestation. Of course this is difficult when your home is water logged. However, if you can dry the bedroom, that can give significant relief. Use the dehumidifier and heater particularly in the sleeping quarters to reduce wetness. Use a light in the closet and other dark places.
Detergent and soap are useful to clean mold surfaces, but it is the moisture that is the culprit.
Note: New carpets, new mobile homes give off harmful chemicals. Be sure to air these out sufficiently before turning on the heat.
When you are around mold use a N-95 rated mask. Note that the mask should be secure and tight.
A nasal filter such as the BreathePure Filter works well, particularly for those with allergy. See http://www.breathepurenap.com
Drink warm tea, green or black, with or without caffeine. Tea stimulates the movement of nasal cilia, provides L-theanine, and antioxidants. These improve health and aid in resistance to sinus and respiratory infection.
Use the Grossan Hydro Pulse™ Nasal/Sinus Irrigator. This nasal irrigator flushes unwanted dust, molds and allergens out of the nose and sinuses by a pulsing action. The rate of pulsing is matched to the normal pulse rate of the nasal cilia in order to restore good cilia movement. With normal cilia movement, unwanted bacteria are moved out of the nose and sinuses to prevent sinus and respiratory infection; in acute and chronic sinusitis, this pulse rate aids by restoring that cilia defense. http://www.hydromedonline.com
Stress can be aided by Counted Breathing. As you breathe, silently count in four and out six. When you make exhalation longer and a relaxing action, you reduce stress chemicals.
Sleep is very important to prevent illness. If sleeping is a problem, consult your doctor for aid.
Force yourself to have a smile on your face! Making that smile improves your immunity to colds and winter ills!
Get comedies from Netflix and others. People have been cured by viewing comedies. Humor increases immunity factors.
Hum! Humming at a low pitch helps stimulate nasal cilia. The nasal cilia move bacteria out of the nose and sinuses.
