We all know that Houston’s allergies are bad. And, this summer we have had the African dust that has caused many to forgo being outside at all.
According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, Allergic Rhinitis (AR) affects an estimated 60 million Americans. AR is the fancy term for those seasonal allergies that cause sneezing, watery eyes, congestion and sinus drainage. Left unchecked, they not only cause misery, but can lead to asthma and sinus infections for many.
If you add up both the direct and indirect costs, AR is responsible for an estimated $11.2 billion in healthcare costs, 12 million physician office visits, 2 million days of school absences and 3.5 million lost work days per year.
One of the best and least expensive treatments for combating seasonal allergies is daily sinus irrigation with a saline solution, such as Dr. Neil Med’s Sinus Rinse Kit. It removes the allergens in the sinus cavities, reduces the swelling and clears the fluids & mucus.
“Of all the treatments tried for controlling and curing the symptoms of sinus disease, the one I found to work the best is a saline nasal rinse,” says Dr. Mehta, the inventor of the Sinus Rinse Kit. Also, according to a study reported by NPR News, the regular use of sinus irrigation improved nasal symptoms of the participants by 30 percent to 40 percent.
Also, in a 2008 study in the Wisconsin Medical Journal, of the 21 study participants who used a nasal rinse, 12 participants reported symptom improvements. The study also suggested that sinus irrigation may help in alleviating asthma and nasal polyp symptoms.
