I am suffering from sinus for last 3-4 years having DNS and multiple polyp causing blocking of my nose however I got treatment in Agra for this but it's repeats regularly, the Dr. are suggested me to operate this but as this is not permanent treatment of this so I want final advice from you should I go for surgery or other one.

Of all the possible holistic or alternative treatments available, Chronic Sinusitis stands the best chance of being cured by Homeopathy. This has been my personal first hand experience as a homeopathic doctor as well as the experience of hundreds of patients of sinusitis who got cured by Homeopathy. The Homeopathic treatment of sinusitis is far superior as it does not resort to any strong medicines or antibiotics. The homeopathic medicine for sinusitis is mild and has the additional benefit that it does not cause any side effect at all. In fact, it strengthens the immunity of the patient and helps in fighting other infections also You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance

Gargling with warm salt water is an effective way to treat a sore throat. Salt can even help kill the bacteria or virus causing pharyngitis. Mix three teaspoons of salt (preferably sea salt) in two cups of warm water. Gargle with this solution. Do not swallow it. Spit the water out after gargling. Do this several times daily for one to two days. For further queries get back to me.

Sir you need to see an ent specialist and undergo wax removal. It is done with suction, probr or syringing. Putting oil predisposes to lot of enfections and alos completely blocks ear.

First of all you have to keep your ear free from water & soap. Secondly you have to prevent any indirect flow due to common cold or allergy. These are the two most important issues which needs your attention. Use a vaseline coated cotton in the ear during bath etc and take your already prescribed anti cold or anti allergic medication accordingly. Don't lift heavy weights and don't blow your nose frequently. This should dry up your ear substantially. Then you can have surgery done. If the discharge is not infected, surgery can be done in a healthy wet ear also.

Hi, I am 39 year male, smoker, I have severe throat infection, chest blockage due to sputum, running nose and sneezing like crazy.

DNB (Respiratory diseases), MBBS
Allergist/Immunologist, Nagpur
Running nose, throat infection, sputum is due to nasal allergy and continuous dripping of your nasal and sinus fluids from back of nose over throat. This process is exacerbated by smoke. However, I also need to see if you have airway inflammation as well ie. Asthma. I can help. But first I require 2 reports, 1. Xray paranasal sinus waters view, 2. Spirometry. Have them done and send the report.

How can I treat my wife from snoring during sleep who has 20 percent more weight than the actual weight because of her back surgery?

MBBS, cc USG
General Physician, Gurgaon
Hello, I am giving you some health tips for snoring problem Lifestyle changes to stop snoring Lose weight, consult me to guide for this Exercise exercising your arms, legs, and abs, for example, also leads to toning the muscles in your throat, which in turn can lead to less snoring Avoid sleeping pills, and sedatives because they relax the muscles in the throat Establish regular sleep patterns. Create a healthy bedtime ritual with your partner and stick to it Clear nasal passages. If you have a stuffy nose Keep bedroom air moist. Dry air can irritate membranes in the nose and throat, so if swollen nasal tissues are the problem, a humidifier may help. Change your sleeping position. Elevating your head four inches may ease breathing Sleep on your side instead of your back Consult chest Physician for further management

Constant Ringing in Ears - Causes + Treatment

Constant Ringing in Ears - Causes + Treatment

Tinnitus is a disorder which is characterized by a constant perception of a ringing noise in the ears. This is not the condition in itself, rather it signals some other underlying condition such as an ear injury or age related hearing loss. It is not a serious condition, although the symptoms can worsen with age. If you are affected by this disorder, you might experience or ‘hear’ a constant ringing sensation in the ears, even if there are no external sources of noise. These sounds could range from being a buzzing, ringing, to a hissing sound. This condition has mighty chances of interfering with your daily routine.

It is classified into two types:

  1. Objective tinnitus: This disorder is caused by muscle contractions or a blood vessel problem.
  2. Subjective tinnitus: The more commonly occurring type, it is caused by damage to the auditory nerves or regions of the brain that interpret sound.

The causes of this disorder are:

  1. Exposure to loud noise: If you are exposed to loud noises such as the ones emanating from firearms or heavy machinery over a prolonged period, it can lead to tinnitus.
  2. Aging: Aging can cause progressive loss of hearing, thus triggering tinnitus.
  3. Blockage of the ear: There is earwax present in the ears, the function of which is to trap dirt and bacteria. Excessive earwax accumulation leads to loss of hearing, resulting in tinnitus.
  4. Modifications of the ear bone: Any stiffening of the middle bone in the ear could impair your hearing and result in this condition.

Certain factors such as smoking, age, sex (men are prone to this disorder) and heart related disorders increase the risks of being affected by this condition.

Treatment
The treatment of this condition begins with the identification of the underlying condition, if any. The various treatment options are –

  1. Removal of earwax: Excess earwax has gotten rid of which can relieve symptoms of tinnitus.
  2. Suppression of noise: Certain machines, known as white noise machines, produce random sounds such as the sound of rain or the sounds of waves, thus eliminating the ‘hearing’ of sounds which are common to this condition.
  3. Medications: Certain medications such as alprazolam and nortriptyline can help reduce the severity of the symptoms. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ent-specialist.

Loss of appetite may be due to worm infestation. Mentain hygiene for food. Take antihelminheti med. You may take ajawain with your food regularly for one month. It is good appetizer and deworming agent and generally used in kitchen. And for acidity and loss of appetite take pomegranate juice after lunch. Avoid spicy and deep fried food.

Hi kindly get an impedance and a pure tone audiometry done will help to know if there is any fluid collection inside the ear. Also you can do steam inhalation twice a day for few days. Also can use nasal decongestant drops 2 drops three times a day for few days. Once you get those tests done share will help you further.
