The team at Crane Clinic is used to the increased incidence of sinus infections this time of year as the weather changes.
Common signs and symptoms of sinus infection:
• Thick yellow/green nasal discharge.
• Runny nose/postnasal drip.
• Pressure/pain around face, eyes, teeth, ears.
• Colds that persist/colds become more severe.
• Feeling tired/tired.
• Bad breath.
Sinusitis is inflammation of the sinus tissue, leading to infection and mucus buildup, discomfort, and pain. Sinus infections can be very unpleasant, debilitating, exhausting, and can really impact your quality of life.
If left unchecked, recurrent sinuses may even require surgery to resolve sinus blockage.
US statistics show sinusitis is the fifth most common diagnosis for which antibiotics are prescribed – and Ireland is widely following suit.
Antibiotic treatment is common, but many infections are caused by viruses or allergies. A sinus infection that lasts longer than 10 to 14 days may be bacterial sinusitis. Fungal sinusitis can be caused by exposure to mold, yeast, or mold. People with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop more severe fungal sinus infections.
At Crane Clinic, after a thorough consultation, nutritionist Emer will develop a personalized nutrition and lifestyle plan using scientifically proven methods to help you manage your sinus infections at home. Over time, the frequency, duration, and impact of infections on your life can improve significantly.
If it is determined that the source of your sinus infection may be from external environmental factors, such as mycotoxins in mold, the team at Crane Clinic will perform comprehensive testing using advanced technology to accurately detect common and harmful mycotoxins. Targeted treatment strategies are then implemented to proactively address toxin-related health issues.
