CONCLUSION

Preventive Measures

If it is not possible to modify the environment in order to have clean air, rinsing of the nasal passages with sterile saline is the next best option. Unfortunately even if we modified our own home environments to reduce air pollutants, we can never have truly clean air if we are living in highly populated city environments, due to vehicle emissions etc. Nasal rinsing should be performed as stipulated in Appendix II below in order to achieve optimal results. Health professionals may wish to refer to a paper which I have written on common chronic infective conjunctivitis where they will find more detail on the diagnosis of this condition. For temporary relief of eye irritation related to chronic conjunctivitis or any cause such as allergy or dust, rinsing the eyes with sterile saline cleans out the eyes and offers relief without side effects.

Reducing nervous stress, improving the diet and regularly taking horseradish and garlic, and avoiding exposure to cold air or draughts, especially after showering or sweating, will all help to prevent worsening of nasal/sinus infection. Adequate intake of fluids and use of a humidifier to moisten the air in the home will also help as these measures prevent drying and subsequent infection of the nasal mucosa (lining of the nasal passages).
