Have you ever known anyone who suffers with sinusitis? Do they say, “I hate having to live my life with constant sinus congestion. It feels awful and drags me down.”

Great news.

Nobody has to live that way. Not only that, but did you know that sinus congestion during youth does not have to mean sinus troubles as an adult? That’s right. Are you asking, “How can that be true?” Excellent question. Let’s start by asking, what is sinusitis?

Sinusitis is a symptom, the body’s way of telling us that something is wrong. What’s wrong? Sinusitis develops from sinus passages that have become mucus-filled and inflamed. Drainage cannot occur; congestion and pain result.

What causes inflammation of the sinuses? It begins with stress. Stress causes vertebral subluxations.

Subluxations prevent the nervous system from working properly. The nervous system controls the sinuses. When the nervous system is weakened, sinus function is weakened as well. Congested sinuses result.

Subluxation, what’s that?

A subluxation is a condition in which a spinal segment is out of alignment with the adjacent segment. Nerves, which branch off of this spinal cord, no longer properly work.

Stress comes in three types: chemical, like trans fats; physical, like poor posture; emotional like depression. All three can cause subluxations.

People often turn to medicine for themselves and children. Problem solved, or is it?

If sinusitis caused by being born with not enough medicine in the body? Of course not. Medicine may offer temporary relief, but it does not address the cause. Sinus problems will only return.

What prevents many people from recovering from sinusitis? The fact that they don’t know their sinuses are in trouble in the first place. Many people assume their ongoing congestion is from a stubborn cold, not realizing the extent of sinus involvement, and take cold medication. Cold medication is not the answer, not even for a cold.

Relieving the cause of any disease cannot be achieved without removing spinal subluxations.

True or false: Under healthy conditions, the job of sinuses to ensure, via mucus, that air traveling to the lungs has been cleaned of toxins.

The answer, “True.” Mucus is normally a good thing. It’s sticky and meant to trap the bad stuff. Mucus only leads to sinusitis when there’s too much of it.

Another true or false question, sinuses are located in the arms, chest and back.

False. Higher up, sinuses consist of eight spaces in the forehead, cheeks, and temples.

Here is another one; vertebral subluxations that cause sinusitis and other symptoms can be removed by doubling daily water intake. False. Water reduces stress, but a vertebral subluxation remains until it is manually, yet gently removed. It’s the purpose of a chiropractic adjustment.

Remember, the body’s sinuses and drainage system are controlled by the nervous system. Keep the nervous system strong, and the risk of sinus troubles decrease.

What keep the nervous system strong? The removal of spinal subluxation. Nerves branch off of spinal cord through tiny holes in the vertebrae. When vertebrae are out of alignment, it’s bad news for the nerve.

Spinal adjustments remove interference to the body’s drainage system; extra mucus is relieved, and proper sinus function restored. The best part, it’s without the use of drugs.

One who seeks chiropractic care to relieve sinus congestion should keep a tissue handy. Congestion may begin to clear immediately via a runny nose.

Do you have a friend or loved one who suffers from sinus congestion? Ask your Portage chiropractor for a copy of sinus information to pass along, so your loved one can finally find relief and live the life they always imagine. You can help change someone’s life. What can feel better than that? Nature, time, and patience are three great physicians.
