Acute sinusitis - represents the inflammation of the mucouse membrane of the nasal sinuses (the hollow spaces in the bones, near the nose, that helps for reverberating of sounds)

The difficulties of the immune system to adapt to these changes may be seen in many small epidemics of viral infections, of respiratory troubles, from allergic rhinitis to chronical bronchitis and in more extended flu epidemics.


Cleaning the throat with gemmotherapy

We are going to use again some of the remedies we have already discussed about at the nose cleaning, because usually we find in the daily practice rhino-pharingitis and post-nasal catarrhs, which involve the nose and the throat in the same time.

For children, we use as the main drainage strategies for the throat:

  • Abies pectinata (Silver Fir), young shoots, MG=D1 – an excellent remineralising remedy and an anti-inflammatory remedy for the upper respiratory tract mucosa.
  • Betula verrucosa (Silver Birch), buds, MG=D1 – very good anti-inflammatory and anti-infectious remedy for children.
  • Ribes nigrum (Blackcurrant), buds, MG=D1 – the main immune stimulant in every upper respiratory tract infection
  • Rosa canina (Dog Rose), young shoots, MG=D1 – the main remedy for recurrent inflammation and infections of the throat.

Cleaning the respiratory sinuses with gemmotherapy

Sinuses are air compartments near the nose, useful for the flow of air in the upper respiratory area. Any inflammation or infection of the sinuses is very difficult to treat

  • because of the anatomical position of the sinuses - which are closed and relatively isolated areas, with only one communication with the nasal cavities.
  • Because the discharges are blocking the communication between sinuses and nose, and the pressure of fluid accumulated in the sinuses produces intense pain and discomfort
  • Closed collection of pathological discharges can get infected easily, and many sinusitis will suppurate very quickly after the onset
  • Healing process is slow, difficult, painfull and must be assisted. Elimination from sinuses is slow and difficult.

The main cleaning remedies for the sinuses are:
