Allergen

Sneezing is regarded as a forceful, sudden, uncontrolled burst of air through the mouth and nose.

What causes Sneezing?

Sneezing is usually caused by an irritation to the mucus membranes of the throat and nose and not usual a sign of a serious problem. Sneezing is a response from the sinus passages attempting to clear its passages of foreign objects.

Sneezing can be triggered by:

  • Flu and cold.
  • Allergens such as pollen, dust, mold and dander that you may be allergic too.
  • Inhalation of drugs.
  • Triggers such as air pollution, certain medicines, powders, spicy food and strong emotions.
  • Breathing in corticosteroids.

The nose acts as a filtration device, and it removes the allergens by expelling them in a sneeze. The allergens that enter the nose are made up of tiny particles and it can take multiple sneezes to remove the irritants.


Homecare for Sneezing

The best way to control sneezing is to avoid exposure to allergens. Preventions or Ways to reduce the exposure:

  • Minimize animal dander by removing pets from home.
  • Go places with low pollen counts.
  • Air filters may be used to reduce pollen in the air.
  • Change furnace filters.
  • Kill dust mites by washing linens in hot water.
  • Remove carpets – if carpets can’t be replaced by a solid, then it must be cleaned thoroughly and frequently.
  • Vacuum upholstered furniture, draperies, and other fabric items that cannot be washed, removed, or replaced regularly.
  • Remove as much clutter as possible to make cleaning easier.
  • Damp dusting using a dampened cloth or an oiled mop will minimize the distribution of dust through the air.

Baby’s Room – Special Tips

  • Wood or plastic chairs are best for baby’s room.
  • Use dust-proof casings for all bedding.
  • Stuffed animals should never be placed in the crib and should be washable.
  • Animal fur and dander is a potential allergen so best to keep pets out of the baby’s room.
  • Overhead mobiles and wall hangings collect dust.

In most cases, moving out of the house where there is a mold spore problem can be helpful. Sneezing that is not caused by an allergy will disappear when illness causing it, is treated or cured.

Why do people say “God bless U” when someone sneezes?

October 11, 2012

The expression of saying “God bless you” after sneezing may have originated from a superstition, and every culture has different superstitions…

In Europe around the  Middle Ages, it was believed that one’s life was tied to one’s breath, the word expire originally meaning “to exhale” and then later on gaining the additional meaning of “to come to an end” or “to die”.  Therefore when one sneezed, a significant amount of breath was expelled from the body which led people to believe that sneezing could easily be fatal.

In certain parts of Eastern Asia a sneeze without an obvious cause was perceived as a sign that someone was talking about the sneezer at that very moment (ohhh… scary!).

Polish Culture believed that sneezes may be an ill-fated sign that one’s mother-in-law is speaking ill of their son-in-law at that moment. The same phenomenon is thought to correspond to a daughter-in-law and their respective mother-in-law.

In other parts of the world it was believed that a human’s soul is centrally located in the head, in the form of air. They believed that the soul may be expelled through sneezing, so they needed God’s blessing to prevent this form from happening.

Some ancient cultures believed that sneezing forced evil spirits out of the body and as such could endanger other people nearby. A blessing was believed to protect the person sneezing as well as the people around him/her.

Interesting facts about sneezing include

  • A sneeze can travel at the speed of 100 mph;
  • People do not sneeze when they are sleeping since the nerves are also resting;
  • 18% and 35% of the population sneeze when they are exposed to bright light;
  • People may sneeze due to plucking of eyebrows, since the nerve endings in the face are irritated and then fire a certain impulse that reaches the nasal nerve.

Clinical Trials showing the effectiveness of ingredients contained in SinusWars1 (Hayfever and Allergies Remedy)

Grasses

144 Allergy sufferers where selected for a random, double blind-placebo controlled clinical trial in 1986 to identify the effects of Homeopathic Remedies containing Mixed Grass Pollen 30C (1986) by a hospital based in Glasgow, Scotland (Glasgow Homeopathic Hospital, with the assistance of the Department of Bacteriology and Immunology of Glasgow University).

The individuals that were randomly selected needed to have one common item; Seasonal rhinitis (Hayfever) that had persisted for two years or more. Numerous individual which made up the 144 were selected to have the placebo, on a double blind basis whilst others were given variations of twelve diverse species of grasses found in the United Kingdom.

Daily pollen counts were also identified during this study to negate any outside influences.

The results showed positive improvement:

  • Patients given the Homeopathic formulation containing any of the 12 diverse grasses showed a faster reduction of allergy symptoms.
  • The need for antihistamines to alleviate symptoms decreased by 50%

All these findings are according to the report published, “the observed effects of homeopathic treatment are a contemporary statement of an empirical puzzle in its third century and represents a confusing challenge to orthodox scientific models’.

Results of these findings can be found in the British Medical Associations official Journal ‘The Lancet’, under the following title ‘Is Homeopathy a Placebo Response? Controlled Trial of Homeopathic Potency with Pollen in Hayfever’ and helps ascertain the effectiveness of ingredients found in the SinusWars1, Hayfever and Allergies Remedy found online at http://www.sinuswars.com/remedies/SinusWars1.asp


Does SinusWars work?

November 4, 2011

Want an effective sinus treatment WITHOUT SCAMS, CONS or LIES? SinusWars products are some of the best complex remedies, for sinus and sinus related conditions, available today – BUT do they really work???

To know if SinusWars products work we first need to understand HOW SinusWars products work…

If you are ill, it means that certain systems in your body have been disrupted in some way or the other, therefore causing these systems to behave “abnormally” in an attempt at healing itself. In some cases due to poor dieting, environmental pollution, allergies, some medicines or a weakened immune system the body does not heal itself and so continues to behave abnormally.

SinusWars products are made from all homeopathic ingredients. To read more about homeopathy please click here or for the history of homeopathy please click here.

Homeopathy is used to treat the underlying causes of a condition, correct the abnormalities and bring the body back to its original state. No magic or hocus pocus involved. SinusWars uses ingredients that have been rigorously tested – meaning there are clinical tests which prove that these ingredients do in-fact work.

In the case of a sinus infection, once the body detects a disruption (like bacteria) in the sinuses it starts behaving “abnormally” by producing lots of mucus to flush the bacteria or irritant out. This in turn results in pressure, congestion, a runny nose, pain and stuffiness. If not treated, other systems in the body also become disrupted through the development of post nasal drip, nasal polyps, headaches or ear infections. There are a range of SinusWars products to treat and target each of these conditions specifically.

Let’s take an example:

If one has a sinus problem – SinusWars remedies will stop the body from producing lots of mucus, unblock any trapped mucus in the sinuses, reduce inflammation and treat any infections that may be present. By treating the cause rather than just relieving the pain or drying up the mucus, SinusWars remedies offer long term relief and a more reliable solution.

SinusWars remedies have no impact on your immune system and in-fact makes your immune system stronger. These products target the underlying causes of a condition and don’t just cover up the symptoms like most over-the-counter (OTC) medicines. OTC medicines might promise instant relief but SinusWars remedies work deep from the inside out, which might result in it taking a few days longer before you see results. There is no “quick fix product” that will get rid of nasal polyps, allergies, a persistent blocked nose, post nasal drip or chronic sinusitis. Products that offer instant solutions for these conditions only provide temporary relief. You have probably had this condition for weeks, months or even years and so should allow your body (with the help of SinusWars remedies) some time to treat the causes, correct the abnormality and heal completely.

Each ingredient used to make up the SinusWars remedies have been stringently tested and only FDA recognized ingredients (found in the Homeopathic Pharmacopeia of the United States (HPUS), in the United States Pharmacopeia (USP), the official National Formulary (NF) and in other additions to this) are all approved and used in SinusWars products.

The SinusWars LLC Company truly believes in helping all sinus sufferers, in fighting the war against sinusitis and restoring one back to health safely and naturally!

So… Does SinusWars work?

Absolutely – Yes! As proven by you! Click here to view your testimonials. We have been fighting sinus problems for years!

Sometimes, however, we do loose some battles along the way – which then leads to the question….

Why doesn’t SinusWars work for me?

If you are taking SinusWars remedies and they are not working for you – there are several factors to consider.

There are four things you should look at:

  1. You might not be taking the correct product – if you suspect that this is the case, give us a call or email us with all your current symptoms, the products you been taking and how long you been taking them and we will evaluate your condition.
  2. If you are taking the correct product, you might not be taking the product consistently and the healing process has been disrupted. Take the remedies everyday without missing a dose.
  3. If you have been taking the product consistently, your body might just need more time to correct itself (this is especially true for chronic conditions, if you have had sinus problems for years  a few weeks of therapy might not be enough)

Physically, emotionally and psychologically we are all different and unique, it is no wonder that our immune systems are different and unique as well. The way you respond to any treatment whether it is prescribed antibiotics, a nasal spray bought at the drug store or SinusWars products bought over the internet… we all respond to these treatments differently. One nasal spray or antibiotic will not work for every human being.

Find what works for you!

Don’t give up!

Don’t settle for less!

You don’t have to use medicines with unwanted side effects or which have addictive properties. Why use treatments that may cause more harm to your nose and your immune system, when there are effective natural alternatives, like SinusWars, that have been used for centuries to work with your immune system instead of against or separate from it.

Have a sinus free day,

A deviated septum

July 18, 2011

What is a septum?

The septum is a wall dividing the nasal passages and sinus cavities in two. This wall is made mainly of bone while the front portion is made of cartilage. The septum together with the nasal passages and sinus cavities are lined with mucus membranes.

 What is a deviated septum?

A deviated septum/septal deviation is when this cartilage is either damaged or crooked.

What causes a deviated septum?

There are two main causes for a deviated septum:

  1. Nasal trauma, when the septum is injured. This injury can happen during:
  • Contact sports such as boxing, skate/snow boarding, riding a bicycle, ect…
  • Household accidents such as falling, bumping into things (clumsy), fistfights, ect…
  1. Unusual nasoseptal growth patterns also known as cartilaginous growth abnormalities, which are birth defects.

Can a deviated septum cause any complications?

Yes, there are complications that include:

  • Sinusitis, which can be caused when a deviated septum blocks a sinus opening. This makes stagnant mucus a perfect place for bacteria to thrive in causing a sinus infection.
  • Congestion is caused when a deviated septum blocks the sinus opening. Mucus then builds up in the sinus cavities causing it to block.
  • Nose bleeds. There are many tiny blood vessels in the septum that can damage easily. Injuries can cause the tip or the inside of your nose to bleed.
  • Post nasal drip is the drip of mucus down the back of the throat caused by blocked sinus cavities.
  • Difficulty breathing when nasal passages are inflamed, making the passages narrow.
  • Headaches due to congestion and pressure build up in blocked sinuses.

How is septal deviation treated?

Septoplasty. This is a surgery performed to repair or straighten a damaged septum. This procedure is mainly done for people over the age of 18 as a child’s septum only stops growing around 17-18 years. Surgeons usually wait for children to reach this age before surgery is performed.

The Netti Pot

April 14, 2011

What is a netti-pot?

A netti-pot or nose bidet is a device used to clean the sinus cavities.

It is commonly shaped as an oil lamp and is usually filled with a warm saline (salt-water) solution. The spout is inserted into one nostril. The solution will go in the one nostril and come out the other side cleaning your sinuses and nasal passages.

Some people found that using the netti-pot made them feel as if they had accidentally inhaled water while swimming.

Are they effective?

Yes, they are but it only gives short-term relief to the person. The objective is to use it frequently, to wash irritants out before they cause infections. It may help to reduce snoring, a stuffy head or mouth breathing. People suffering from Chronic Sinusitis are recommended to use a netti-pot regularly as it may promote drainage of the sinuses and speed up the healing process of any inflamed tissues. It also helps to clear congestion and pressure in your sinuses and nasal passages.

SinusWars ProductsWhat more can you do?

Our SinusWars products will work well with the nasal rinses as long as it is done 15 to 20 minutes before you take the remedies. In one or two weeks, you should start to see results and probably use the netti-pot less and less….giving you long term relief. SinusWars products are completely safe with NO known side effects.

We recommend you use either:

    •  SinusWars7 that treats:
      • Congestion and pressure in the sinuses
      • Acute sinus infections
      • Swollen, blocked nose
      • Restores your sense of taste and smell

NB: The usage of other herbal/homeopathic products could neutralize (cancel) each other out and the effectiveness of our remedies may not work! The best solution to use in your netti pot would be a saline (salt-water) solution.
