Sinusitis is a medical condition where the tissue linings of the sinuses become inflamed. Symptoms include: sinus pain and pressure, nasal stuffiness, nasal discharge, cough/congestion. Sinus headache, ear pain, and low energy can accompany this.
Sinusitis can be caused by common cold, nasal polyps, or allergic rhinitis. Allergies to either environmental, food, or seasonal allergies can be a trigger.
Most commonly people have allergies to change in seasons and a rise in pollen count, have undiagnosed food or environmental allergies that spark sinusitis symptoms.
Seeking assistance from a trained natural health professional via acupuncture, herbal medicine and/ or naturopathy supports those looking for solutions to eradicate sinusitis, limit associated negative effects and to significantly improve optimum functioning.
The cornerstone of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is what we call “pattern differentiation.” As informed by this diagnostic framework, Anne don’t simply treat named diseases, she treats patterns. Patterns are groups of signs and symptoms, and the patterns identified in Chinese medicine have been used to help billions of people for thousands of years.
Compared to conventional approaches to mental health, Traditional Chinese Medicine has a unique approach to Sinusitis.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, conditions such as back pain could reflect as both physical and mental disharmony within the individual and are reflective of an individual “Pattern of Disharmony”.
Personalised Treatment Plan
No matter if a client is attending for acupuncture, herbal medicine or naturopathy, a treatment plan will be based on a personalised in-depth consultation to first evaluate causality and identity this “Pattern”.
The initial consultation takes account of all possible contributions to Sinusitis (e.g., diet and lifestyle factors past illness or trauma, post-surgical adhesions, injury, stressors, environmental factors etc.).
A personalized treatment plan will be put in place then to reducing acute symptoms and restore equilibrium to the body; to improve overall mental health and overall wellness.
That’s in light of the principle that T.C.M and holistic medicine in general is a mind/body medicine which aims to optimise the health and wellbeing of the whole person.
