Cause of Chronic Sinusitis Announced; New Actions Proposed by Hydro Med Inc

Mission Hills, Ca. (PRWEB) February 20, 2013

Why do thirty five million persons in the U.S. have chronic sinusitis, despite modern technologies and drugs? Why are there so many treatment failures? The answer is that a nasty bug is the cause.

At the International Forum of Allergy and Rhinology an important common cause of sinusitis and respiratory disease was announced. The researcher, Vijay R. Ramakrishnan, assistant professor at University of Colorado School of Medicine published that persons with chronic sinusitis show bacterial infection in an area where the sinuses open into the nose. Unfortunately, the bacteria that were identified are the ones most stubborn to treat.

He reported the presence of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria, a particularly hard bacterium to get rid of. Staphylococcus aureus is involved in skin and respiratory infections. These are difficult to treat because many of these bacteria have become resistant to penicillin and other antibiotics.

In light of these important findings, Dr Grossan has presented a natural approach for this problem. In his blog, he is recommending to add Xylitol for pulsatile sinus irrigation as a means of promoting the natural healing process.

Xylitol is a natural sugar that is used by persons with diabetes instead of regular cane sugar, as a sweetener or for baking. This is because it is not metabolized by insulin; therefore diabetics use it. It is inexpensive, sold by the pound at the grocery store in the diabetic section.

Xylitol is not an antibiotic. It’s action is based on the fact that bacteria can’t digest it. This lowers the total bacteria count. Xylitol sugar is a complex that keeps bacteria from adhering to the nasal surface, which prevents them from entering the body.

Thus, when Xylitol is used topically for pulsatile irrigation, the bacteria count gets lowered. By reducing their ability to adhere, they are more easily swept away by natural cilia action and by pulsatile irrigation.

In any infection, the lower the bacterial count, the better the ability of natural immunity and healing to take place. For chronic sinusitis, adding three teaspoons of Xylitol to the pint container (500 cc) of the Hydro Pulse™ Nasal/Sinus Irrigator is the dose Dr Grossan is advising for his patients. This gives a three-way punch to the infection: the pulse action to remove bacteria, the pulse rate to speed nasal cilia, and the Xylitol to starve and unstick the bacteria.

Hydro Med Inc provides a blog where the best ideas for therapy, without harmful drugs are presented. These ideas have been tested daily in the practices of Dr Murray Grossan and his associates at Tower ENT.

Recent recommendations for staying well in the winter cold are:

  •     Smile. When you smile you increase your immunity.
  •     Warm up before you enter the elevator or classroom. In cold weather, the nasal cilia slow down. The cilia are the tiny oars that move the bacteria out of the nose. If they move slowly, then bacteria may remain in place, multiply and cause infection. Dr Grossan advises, when coming in from the cold, try to warm up in the hallway for a few minutes. As soon as the nose is no longer cold, then the nasal cilia should be back to their good speed and able to move bacteria you may be exposed to out of the nose and sinuses, so that you can stay healthy.
  •     Dr Grossan writes: “Whenever you can use natural immunity to heal, that is always the best method for staying well.”
