Antibiotics No Help for Sinusitis.


Bonnie: While these studies seem to publish at a rapid pace, many people, including some of our own clients, simply do not listen. Aside from providing no help for sinusitis sufferers, antibiotics can do so much short and long-term damage. It is astonishing that doctors keep acquiescing to the patient in this regard because, sinusitis is almost always viral or fungal, not bacterial.

A new study in Journal of the American Medical Association found patients with acute rhinosinusitis had no differences in symptoms or quality of life three days after starting on amoxicillin compared with patients who received a placebo instead. "It provides further evidence for what we've really suspected for a long time -- that in the management of patients with acute sinusitis, antibiotics do not convey any additional benefit," said the lead researcher.

The study's authors also criticized physicians who prescribe azithromycin (Zithromax Z-Pak) for sinus infections."If anything, it's less effective," he said. "The prevalence of its prescribing represents sloppy practice."


Bonnie: The best remedy for sinusitis is prevention. Promoting healthy gut flora balance, limiting immune-depleting foods such as sugar, grain carbohydrates, and dairy, and avoiding food intolerances, is task number one. Non-pharmaceutical prophylaxis is available and should be be individualized for each specific case. Here are general recommendations:

    -Massage each side of the nose at the bottom edge of the nasal bones as well as the grooves at the widest point of both nostrils to the count of 10 at least three times daily.
    -NAC (N-Acetlycysteine) thins out mucus.
    -Quercetin, Vitamin C, and Bromelain can reduce inflammation and stop runny nose.
    -Take a probiotic with at least 5 billion bacteria twice daily.

    -Hydrate with homemade broth, water, and tea of your choice.
