Sinus infections may be caused by lifestyle choices.
Sinus Infections and Ear Infections
- Air conditioning encourages people to keep doors and windows closed. This creates a hospitable environment for mildew, molds and other bad guys to grow. It also encourages folks to spend more time indoors.
- Sinus infections often caused by phlegm, snot, mucus. They are the same thing in different configurations.
- Milk and other dairy products can cause the body to make more phlegm causing the sinuses cavities to become plugged and not drain good. This too puts up a happy house for the germs.
- The Eustachian tubes that drain the middle ears suffer the same fate as the sinuses. This causes ear aches and infections.
- Also, blowing your nose forces mucus into these empty spots.
- Instead of blowing your nose, sniff the mucus and swallow it. Normally bout two quarts a day drains into the stomach.
Blamed On Allergies
I believe that too many of these sinus infections and ear infections are blamed on “allergies”. Furthermore, we don’t take enough thought into avoiding the whole problem.
Got an earache or sinus infection? Then, it’s a good idea to avoid all dairy products till the problem’s solved.
“Mucus is incredibly important for our bodies,” explains Michael M. Johns, III, MD, director of the Emory Voice Center and assistant professor of otolaryngology — head and neck surgery at Emory University. “It is the oil in the engine. Without mucus, the engine seizes.”
