Newtown, CT (PRWEB) March 19, 2008
The hot word in headaches today? Nasal allergies – spring is here and so is hay fever. A recent study showed a clear link between nasal allergies (hay fever) and migraine. In the study, 34% of those with hay fever also had migraine, and only 4% of those without hay fever had migraine.
There are a wide assortment of products to help the millions of sufferers -- ranging from antihistamines to aspirin and acetaminophen to opiate analgesics but none of these treatments are invariably effective – and all have potentially serious side effects to certain patients.
So it is no surprise that many Americans fear that we are an overmedicated society –
- Based on a 2002 survey, 46% of Americans use at least one prescription drug daily.
- 20% of recently approved prescription drugs have serious, life threatening side effects.
- Percentage of Americans taking anti-allergy medications who may not even have allergies: 65%
- The annual cost of prescription drug errors: $100 billion
- The approximate number of Americans that die annually from FDA approved drugs: 125,000
- The approximate number of Americans that die annually from Aspirin use: 2,000
And question just what to do when the allergy symptoms hit…
Sinol – made from capsaicin, a naturally occurring substance found in cayenne peppers (and recently touted by Hillary Clinton as a source for staying healthy on the campaign trail) is a nasal spray that quickly delivers pain relief for the most debilitating headaches and sinus symptoms without drowsiness, dependency or other medicinal issues associated with non-herbal remedies and at a fraction of the cost of prescription drugs.
Recently, a group of researchers from Harvard Medical School has concluded that natural capsaicin is an effective ingredient for relieving all types of pain, including the pain associated with headaches. Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City conducted research on capsaicin in nasal spray form and concluded that intranasal medications for the treatment of headaches are significantly more effective than by digestive means because they reduce the swelling of blood vessels in the brain that are the direct cause of most headaches.
Allergy season 2008 will be in full swing shortly and sufferers need to know the options. For more information on Sinol please visit http://www.sinolusa.com.
