Your nose, although a small organ of your body, has important roles. Apart from detecting and differentiating over 4000 scents, its major function is to deliver clean and moisturized air to your lungs.
When air passes through your nostrils, hair inside filters out large particles, such as dust. A continuous sticky lining on the walls of the nostrils, your mucous membrane, traps the smaller particles and virus. The mucous membrane, along with the pus, is then drained down to the stomach by the villa. Virus Collected by the mucous membrane is killed by the acidic enzymes in the stomach.
There are eight cavities located within your skull surrounding your nose. They are called the sinuses. Infections by virus can cause inflammation in the sinuses and later sinusitis. The inside of your nose is comprised of three nasal bones. They are covered with capillaries which serve to warm the entering air stream before it is transported to the lungs.
2. DISEASES RELATED TO THE NOSE:
Allergens (agents causing allergy), smoke, pollens or dust can over-stimulate the mucous membrane, setting off a reactive response. The membrane lining will be inflamed and the drainage produced will flow down the back of your throat. This is called postnasal drip.
Most people blow their noses very hard in an attempt to get rid of the congestion when they suffer from a cold. This is in fact a dangerous practice: Virus may get transported to the sinuses, or travel through the Eustachian tube to the middle ear causing an ear infection as well.
Some people also try to use decongestant nose drops when they have a stuffy nose. This is a band-aid solution. Inflammation of the mucous membrane is actually worse after use of decongestant medications, and this can lead to further complications. It is recommended that you do not overdo this.
Sinusitis means the inflammation of the nasal sinuses. There are three types of sinusitis:
a) Acute Sinusitis: often caused by a bacterial infection. Lasts from 1 day to 3 weeks, pathological changes in the sinuses are usually reversible
b) Chronic sinusitis: persists for three months or more and may involve irreversible damage to the mucus layer.
c) Recurrent sinusitis: for people who have several acute attacks within a year.
Effect：Sinus infection、Chronic nasal sinusitis、Allergic nasal sinusitis
Magnoliae, Caryophylli, Xanthii, Menthae, Ligustici, Cimicifugae, and various natural herbal extracts. They are proven to have significant effects on relieving nasal congestions in the early stage of cold and on treating sinusitis.
1. Dab some Nasalyn on a Q-tip
2. Lightly apply Nasalyn on the walls of one nostril
3. Repeat the first two steps for the other nostril.
4. Use two times every day.
In the first few weeks, inflamed mucus membrane will dry up and gradually dilapidate off the walls of the nostrils. New membrane lining is then free of inflammation. You will feel that it is easier to breath, and your lung capacity will be better than before.
People who have chronic sinusitis may experience the following three stages of response:
1. Episodes of nasal congestion
2. Increased production of snivel
3. Production of less concentrated snivel
The third stage is when there are pathological changes in the condition, i.e. you are almost fully recovered!!!
*Don’t forget to continue using “Nasalyn” to prevent inflammation in the future!
