Nasal sinus congestion
In order to be in a position to treat your sinus congestion it's good if you understand what is causing the congestion. In the majority of chronic sinus problems the root cause is allergies and offending airborne allergens such as dust, mites and pollen. Apart from that there is also the flu virus which can cause sinus congestion but that usually is limited to the cold and flu season and is generally limited to once a year.
Nasal sinus irrigation system
Nasal sinus irrigation is by far the best way to deal with your sinus problem it's easy and fast in terms of execution and it is also one of the best natural relief methods. The other advantage of sinus irrigation is there are no side effects associated with this technique. There are several nasal irrigation tools available in order to effectively irrigate however pulsatile irrigation is recommended most and reported to be more effective at removing bacteria. Pulsatile nasal irrigation is reported in medical journals to effectively break down biofilm which acts as a breeding ground for bacteria and helps to restore ciliary function.
The key to successfully using sinus irrigation is regular use. The objective of nasal irrigation is to rinse away any pollen, dust, or allergens which might cause an allergic response or infection. People whom have not tried sinus irrigation before might find it unusual, messy, or difficult to use. However, the SinuPulse Elite® Advanced Nasal Sinus Irrigation System combines the performance of pulsatile irrigation, which has been reported to be more effective than non pulsating methods, with the convenience of a device designed for quick and easy use. The SinuPulse takes only minutes to use and can deliver dramatic relief from allergy and sinus problems. For those suffering from chronic sinus infections daily use of the SinuPulse can help prevent colds and recurrent sinus infections.
Nasal sinus treatment
When you are suffering from sinus congestion it's easy to just run down to your nearest drug store and purchase an over the counter drug to relieve the problem. However in most chronic cases it's just going to suppress the symptoms as opposed to doing you any longtime good. If you are suffering from a headache which is a result of sinus congestion taking a few headache pills is not going to help you long term until you do something about the cause of the congestion. Steam inhalation is an effective way to clear congestion. Used in combination with the SinuPulse Elite® can be an especially useful in your war against sinus infections.
