Some 30 million Americans suffer from sinusitis, or sinus infection.  Typically associated with a cold or allergy episode, sinus tissue swells and production of watery mucus increases, causing blocked breathing and a heavy-headed feeling.   Symptoms of sinusitis include: thick, yellow/green mucus, indicating bacterial infection; nasal congestion; sinus headache and/or facial pressure; sometimes even fever and nosebleed.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine offer a comprehensive and highly effective approach to sinus problems. After just one acupuncture treatment, many patients who have suffered for years will feel instant relief. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine are used widely in the Orient to treat all patterns of sinusitis. There are unique Chinese herbal formulas and acupuncture treatment plans for acute sinus infection, chronic sinusitis, and for the prevention of further infections.  The use of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine can eliminate the need for antibiotics in cases of acute and recurrent sinusitis.  Given the potential negative side effects of frequent rounds of antibiotics, alternatives are especially valuable for chronic conditions.

Traditional Chinese Medicine regards the diet as an important aspect of treatment. Sinus problems can be exacerbated by the over-consumption of dairy products, which can have a congesting effect. If you have sinusitis, try to avoid cheese, milk, butter, and fried foods.  Breathing easier can be achieved with acupuncture and Chinese herbal formulas; visit your practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine today.
