Did you know that the symptoms of chronic sinus issues go far beyond congestion and pressure? In the U.S., sinus problems are the #1 reason people see a doctor. Symptoms you might not necessarily trace back to your sinus’s include; bad breath, sore throat, and excessive fatigue and more.
I talk to more people who tell me they have not only allergies, but chronic sinus problems as well. I used to be one of those people. There was a period in my life, that for two months out of the year I could not go more than 10 feet from a box of tissues without having to use my sleeve.
That was when I discovered how effective acupuncture is for allergy relief (read more). I had one treatment and never had another sniffle or itch again. Even though I’m much better since then, I do get occasional symptoms.
I keep dairy and other mucus forming foods to a minimum, use my neti pot regularly, and have had subsequent acupuncture treatments…I still I feel like I have not figured out how to manage the issue 100%. So, a couple of weeks ago I caught a little bug and within 12 hours I had sinus pressure to the point I could not sleep. To me this was clear evidence that I had already had a sinus issue brewing.
I know the anatomy of a human head and the laws of physics well enough to know that there is no way the saline solution from my neti pot is getting everywhere it has to wash away pollen, viruses, bacteria, mold, and fungi that floats in the air.
I went on a hunt for a deeper solution, literally! After a bit of research I came across a sinus rinse technique different and better than anything I had read before. It is called the “Friggy Flip Turn. Click here to read the article ”. It describes a safe and effective method to irrigate all 8 of the sinuses instead of only the 2 or 4 that the neti pot effectively reaches.
In addition to the detailed explanation of how to do it, there are over 200 comments from people who have used the technique, often after a lifetime of chronic problems, and had miraculous results.
Symptoms of Chronic sinusitis include:
• Drainage of a thick, yellow or greenish discharge from the nose or down the back of the throat
• Nasal obstruction or congestion, causing difficulty breathing through your nose
• Pain, tenderness and swelling around your eyes, cheeks, nose or forehead
• Aching in your upper jaw and teeth
• Reduced sense of smell and taste
• Cough, which may be worse at night
Other signs and symptoms can include:
• Ear pain
• Sore throat
• Bad breath (halitosis)
• Fatigue or irritability
Taking control of sinus health is easier that might sound. I did the “flip” for a couple of weeks after my little episode and it worked like a charm. By the end of the 2nd day I was completely out of pain. Since then the persistent post-nasal drip I had is gone too. Whether you have occasional or chronic problems, this could very well be the solution you have been looking for.
Since the Friggy Flip-Turn guide is lacking in pictures I had to do some trial and error to get it just right. If you have questions or want some extra guidance I would be happy to help. It would be my pleasure to further the crusade against sinus pain and post nail drip (not to mention the halitosis. LOL!).
