My ultimate goal is to reduce the amount of unnecessary antibiotics
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 5, 2008
Dr. Murray Grossan, internationally renowned Board certified sinus, ear, nose and throat specialist and author of The Sinus Cure, has successfully treated thousands of patients with all degrees of (sinusitis with the Grossan Hydro Pulse® Pulsatile Sinus System: the only sinus/nasal irrigation system available that pulsates. (http://www.hydromedonline.com) With the Hydro Pulse, saline is gently passed into the nasal passages with a therapeutic rhythm. Irrigation with pulsation is a groundbreaking innovation, proven to be more effective in treating chronic sinusitis and other respiratory maladies than other available methods (cited in 37 Medical references).
Dr. Grossan announces an exciting new application for Hydro Pulse®: the discovery that due to its pulsating action, it is also effective for removing (biofilm. In biofilm, bacteria get together and form a community of sticky stuff, which adheres to nasal tissue and forms an envelope around the colony of bacteria, creating a barrier that is more resistant to antibiotics. "The latest use for the Hydro Pulse is to add certain medications directly into the saline solution, enabling patients to deliver a far more concentrated dose than via the oral route of antibiotics," states Dr. Grossan.
The Hydro Pulse® has the unique ability to vibrate the saline stream, which restores the healthy movement of nasal cilia, the tiny hairs that make up the mucous membrane and wave rhythmically to carry anything on their surface out of the respiratory tract. Healthy, mobile cilia are one of the body's most important disease-fighting mechanisms and the first line of defense against a myriad of viruses, fungal and bacterial infections, including the drug-resistant MRSA.
Dr. Grossan discovered that slow moving cilia are directly responsible for causing numerous sinus health problems ranging from sinusitis and (respiratory infections to (allergies and even (snoring and (sleep apnea. Seeking a natural means to stimulate sluggish cilia to return them to their healthy, mobile state, Dr. Grossan hit upon an ingenious solution: pulsating irrigation, which led to his inventing The Hydro Pulse® Pulsatile Nasal/Sinus System. The pulsating action of the Hydro Pulse® stimulates the sweeping motion of the nasal cilia, as well as delivers the ideal mixture of saline at the ideal pressure and rate of pulsation to match the normal rate of the cilia. "Nasal cilia work better after pulsed irrigation with resultant improved breathing, fewer infections and reduced chance of persistent cough," states Dr. Grossan.
Hydro Pulse® is an effective tool in fighting bacteria, colds and (flu."Studies document that pulsatile irrigation of the sinuses with saline solution can help to prevent colds because it washes out the nasal protein, ICAM-1 to which the rhinovirus attaches to produce colds. No ICAM-1, no entry for the cold virus.
Most people who suffer from the flu experience subsequent nasal and chest congestion; thick mucus settles on the nasal cilia, which slows or stops their motion; the sinuses then become impacted, which causes infection; heavy mucus dripping into the chest is often followed by a cough. "I have my patients irrigate their nose and sinuses with saline using the Hydro Pulse®, which provides the right gentle pressure to stimulate the nasal cilia, zonked by the flu toxins," states Dr. Grossan. As the saline pulses through the sinuses, it clears the mucus, displacing it with the solution. This stops the post-nasal drip and cough and quickly moves bad bacteria out of the nose.
"My ultimate goal is to reduce the amount of unnecessary antibiotics," explains Dr. Grossan. "The Hydro Pulse® provides the best means for your own natural immune system to take over and heal by lowering bacterial count and keeping the cilia moving."
Daily nasal irrigation with the HydroPulse is a natural way to keep the nasal passages clear of toxins from infections, common colds and allergens - they are rinsed away. Additionally, pulsatile irrigation cures (post-nasal drip, which also occurs due to slow cilia movement; it also removes environmental and industrial pollutants, dusts and pollens from nasal passages. Less pollen, less allergies.
Patients who regularly use the Hydro Pulse® pulsatile irrigator have reduced throat tissue swelling and therefore, many of them no longer suffer from sleep apnea or snoring. Little wonder then that so many units are given as gifts!
The Hydro Pulse® Nasal/Sinus Irrigator not only massages the nose and its cilia, and thus reduces the length of time the bacteria sits in your nose and has the opportunity to flourish, but also lowers the bacteria count of such germs as MRSA in the nose.
Because of its gentle pressure, Hydro Pulse® Nasal Pulsatile irrigation is safer than blowing your nose. Using this simple, low cost device is as easy as brushing your teeth; it takes only three minutes and can be used by anyone, even children.
While ancient healers had the right idea of rinsing the nose for better health, Dr. Grossan has perfected the concept with the Hydro Pulse®, named one of Time Magazine's "Best Inventions of the Year."
An Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist for more than 40 years, Dr. Murray Grossan, MD, is also the author of Asthma and Sinusitis, E Medicine http://www.emedicine.com/ent/topic516.htm and How to be Free of Sinusitis Permanently. His Scientific Exhibit on Nasal Cilia Function received the AMA Certificate of Merit. Hydro Pulse is currently recommended in three recent sinus books.
