My friend SWEARS by Hopi candles, used to help her chronic sinusitis. Anyone tried them?
I've just had my first bout of it in Maxiller sinuses - goodness has it been painful, all my teeth felt like I'd got ferocious toothache. Doc was hopeless, told me to use decongestants, which just made it worse. I think it just dries them out, which results in even more 'muck' being produced, vicious circle. For pain relief Doc suggested Ibuprofen (which gives me headaches) so he said just use paracetamol. Might as well just eaten a packet of sweets for all the use they were!
Went to my western herbalist in the end, he put together a concoction of herbs for my immune system, sinuses, upper and lower respiratory system, lymphatic system. Coughing and post nasal drip improved immensely, one side of sinuses OK now but the other still a bit of a problem but improving, pain manageable with paracetamol/codeine mix and only need 2 tabs in the morning.
Nothing to lose by using the herbs given that Doc was useless!
