Sinusitis

Dear Sir,
I have been suffering from chronic sinusitis since months now. Which have been indicated in CT scan at Ethmoid and Sphenoid sinuses (Also it shows deviated Septum). I had been prescribed with antibiotics and they were not able to treat it.
I have a lot of headaches. I use Neti-pot nasal rinsing which improves the symptoms but if I leave doing it, it worsens again; I also have sore throat off and on. I don’t have any drainage from nose but I do have post nasal drips and I have to clear my throat regularly when sometimes I try to blow my nose outcome is normal white and not anything dark. Cold air worsens the headaches. I also inhale steam on a regular basis but it is not giving any permanent relief.
I get headaches in my temples and forehead; I also get inflammation in my nose sometimes, I also feel that my eyes are swollen.
Apart from this just to make you aware that I also have pains in my neck.
My ENT has suggested surgery. I want to use homeopathic if I can avoid surgery also I don’t want to take anymore antibiotics. I have already bought Silicea for startup.
I would really appreciate if you can guide me for a course of Homeopathic medicine.

I am not a homeopath or a doctor. but I have seen a lot of people curing sinusitis through rinsing your nose with diluted grapefruit seed extract (GSE) by use of neti pot. But then again, it might come back unless you change your diet. Just a tip- go and google it if you want to research

have a great one !

Don’t take any more dose or any other remedy unless I tell you!

If your remedy is in the form of pills:

Dissolve the pill under the tongue.

If your remedy is in liquid form:
Put one drop of the remedy in half glass of water, stir and take one tea spoon from it.
That’s one dose.
Use the same mixture for subsequent doses, if required.
Don’t refrigerate the mixture. Put it anywhere covered, away from direct sunlight.

PRECAUTIONS:
If there is significant worsening of symptoms (called homeopathic aggravation) after the first dose, then don’t take the second dose.
Don’t take any other homeopathic remedy during this treatment.
Give a break of at least 10 minutes before eating/drinking anything before or after taking the remedy.

Sir, I just received my order of Natrum Muriaticum 200c, these are in form of pellet, please suggest how many pellet is one dose?
Thanks for your help.
 
AshishSharma 8 years ago
Read above post.
 
fitness 8 years ago
Actually I asked this question as I was not sure if pellet or pill is the same thing, I am assuming now that pill means pellet and will be taking one pellet now.
 
AshishSharma 8 years ago
Yes, they are the same thing.
 
fitness 8 years ago
Five days over since I took one pellet of this remedy. I don't see any difference in the symptoms of Sinusitis. I can see a little (5-10%) improvement in stress handling, I am not sure if this is due to this pill or not. Please suggest further.
 
AshishSharma 8 years ago
To make it more clear, when I mentioned one pellet that means one in the night and one in morning as per your post. Thanks for your help.
 
AshishSharma 8 years ago
Please have a dose of Pulsatilla 200c and report back.
