Treatment for Fungal Sinusitis - New Advanced Sinus Irrigation System Hits the Market - the Sinupulse EliteAfter two painful sinus operations which didn't resolve my problems, I started using pulsating nasal irrigation with a saline solution, and since then my health has improved dramatically. Instead of 2-3 or more sinus an infection and also dizziness symptoms year I have had two infections in 7 years, and those only occurred after long 24 hour trips from overseas when my resistance was way down. I used to get colds all the time, but now I watch others with colds and remark to myself how I never get them any more! Needless to say, I'm sold on pulsating sinus irrigation. (Note- I tried using a Neti Pot, but that method didn't work for me at all. There is something about the fast pulses of water that is particularly effective.)
New Features- Mist Irrigation Attachments for Nose and ThroatThe SinuPulse Elite' has some new features besides just normal nasal and throat irrigation. The unit comes with a mist producing irrigation tip which creates mist that can penetrate deeply and soothe nasal passages. It also comes with a mist producing throat irrigation tip and tongue cleaner. This attachment helps soothe the throat and tongue and also helps to remove food particles and bacteria that can cause bad breath. We had at first written a rough assignment on Sinus Problems. Then after a few improvisions and enhancements here and there, we have ended up with this end product.
Billions of Dollars Could be SavedThe well known ENT Dr. Robert Ivker, author of the book "Sinus Survival", states that there are over 40 million people in the U.S. alone that suffer from chronic sinusitis, defined as persistent inflammation and/or infection lasting longer than 8 to 12 weeks. All or most of these people could probably get control of their chronic sinus problems if they were to use a SinuPulse Elite' machine.
Of course the standard nasal and throat irrigation tips are also available, and these do most of the "heavy lifting". The mist producing tips can make for additional comfort and relief, but these don't do the whole job and only use about 2 oz. of saline solution. 16 oz. of solution are used with each of the regular tips for nasal and throat irrigation using the SinuPulse Elite'. I personally do nasal irrigation twice a day because that regimen gives me great results. Some allergy sufferers only use the machine during allergy season, and that is all they need and works fine for them. Other people only use it when they feel like a cold is coming on. Writing something about Neti Pot seemed to be something illogical in the beginning. However, with the progress of matter, it seemed logical. Matter just started pouring in, to give you this finished product.
Skeptical At FirstWhen something works, you are reluctant to change. Just because a new machine came along, I wasn't ready to jump in with both feet. However, my old machine broke down, and I obviously needed a new one. I wanted to stick with "old faithful", but I had to face the fact that this machine was the second one that broke down on me in a little over a year. The machine was very good, but the salt solution I used must have taken its toll. Opportunity knocks once. So when we got the opportunity to write on Sinus Irrigation, we did not let the opportunity slip from our hands, and got down to writing on Sinus Irrigation.
- New sinus irrigation machine has recently been introduced called the SinuPulse Elite', and I've been using one for several weeks.
- This article will discuss the machine and the results I've had.
- Coordinating matter regarding to Neti Pot took a lot of time.
- However, with the progress of time, we not only gathered more matter, we also learnt more about Neti Pot.
However, I honestly think that everyone should use pulsating nasal irrigation, not just sinus sufferers. It's just a guess, but I would be willing to bet that everyone would eliminate on average one cold per year using pulsating nasal irrigation. At $100 per doctor sinusitis and bad breath more on drugs, the level of savings would be in the billions. And this is not to mention gains in productivity and avoidance of the misery of living with a cold and resulting sinusitis hypertension many cases.
The SinuPulse Elite' unit also comes with 30 packets of saline solution, and there is a user guide that explains exactly how to use the machine and how to mix a saline solution just using non-iodized salt if you prefer, rather than purchasing more saline packets.
