Sinusitis: Causes and Treatment (Over 90% Success Rate)
Causes of sinusitis
Sinusitis is an inflammation (irritation and/or swelling) of the sinuses. According to more than 200 Russian and Soviet medical doctors, causes of sinusitis relate to low body-oxygen levels (less than 20 seconds for the body-oxygen test in cases of infections) due to hyperventilation (breathing at least twice more than the medical norm). Additional factors that reduce oxygen levels in cells are upper chest (thoracic) breathing and habitual mouth breathing.
Sinusitis can be triggered by viruses, bacteria, allergies and certain health conditions. However, since chronic hyperventilation is a norm in the sick, overbreathing plays the central role in development of other problems as well. It is known that overbreathing leads to tissue hypoxia, suppresses the immune system and creates conditions for new infections and chronic inflammation.
While mainstream medical sources usually divide sinusitis on frontal (that take place in the forehead), ethmoid (between the eyes), maxillary (behind the cheek bones), and sphenoid (behind the eyes), all of them have the same pathophysiology (see the graph on the left side below).
When sinusitis is caused by allergies (see the graph on the right side above), the hypersensitive state of the immune system is due to chronic cell hypoxia with less than 30 seconds for the body oxygen test. while the normal level is about 40 seconds.
Proven and fastest natural treatment for sinusitis
Over 90% of people with nasal congestion can get a natural relief in less than 2 minutes if they slow down their heavy breathing using a simple breathing exercise. This easy respiratory exercise to eliminate nasal congestion is an immediate prove of its cause. It was invented by Soviet MDs practicing the Buteyko method. More than 170 MDs taught this most natural remedy to thousands of their patients with asthma, rhinitis, cystic fibrosis, chronic mouth breathing, and many other conditions.
This natural treatment and remedy also works for children, pregnant women, and those with symptoms of fatigue. The exercise can be applied during night sleep as well in order to clear nasal passages and fall asleep faster. Here is the link for the breathing exercise " How to get rid of a stuffy nose in less than 2 minutes".
If you slow down your automatic or unconscious breathing (get closer to the international norm) and achieve more than 20 seconds for the body-oxygen test, your problems with blocked sinuses will disappear. As a result, you can avoid a surgery naturally since you address the causes of sinusitis.
During active stages of the sinus infection, use a very diluted garlic juice as drops for your nose. Make the solution that is strong enough, but not too strong to irritate the mucosal layers. Apply this sinusitis home remedy 10-15 times per day (e.g., every hour), about 20-30 drops in each nostril, while moving and rotating your head in various directions to ensure that the solution can reach all inner and hidden surfaces of your sinuses.

BACKGROUND: This article evaluates the prevalence of hyperventilation syndrome (HVS) in patients who continue to complain of ongoing nasal congestion, despite an apparently adequate surgical result and appropriate medical management.
METHODS: Prospective case series of 14 patients from June 2002 to October 2003 was performed. Patients, who presented complaining of nasal congestion after previous nasal surgery and who appeared to have an adequate nasal airway with no evidence of nasal valve collapse, were evaluated for HVS. When appropriate, nasal steroids and oral antihistamines also had been tested without success. Three patients had end-tidal P(CO2) levels measured and five patients underwent breathing reeducation.
RESULTS: All patients had an elevated respiratory rate (>18 breaths/minute) with an upper thoracic breathing pattern. Twelve of the 14 patients complaining of nasal obstruction had an elevated Nijmegen score indicative of HVS. An average number of 2.5 procedures had been performed on each patient. End-tidal P(CO2) levels were < or = 35 mmHg in the three patients who had expired P(CO2) levels measured. Breathing retraining was successful in correcting the nasal congestion in two of five patients.
CONCLUSION: HVS should be included in the differential diagnosis of patients presenting with nasal congestion, particularly after failed nasal surgery. One possible explanation is increased nasal resistance secondary to low arterial P(CO2) levels. Another possible explanation is reduced alae nasae muscle activity secondary to the reduced activity of serotonin-containing raphe neurons. Additional surgery may not necessarily be the answer in HVS patients complaining of nasal congestion.
