HealthCare4All’s Essential Top 3 Products to ‘Ease the Sneeze’ when suffering from Sinusitis

It appears that I was not the only person that just had an awful ‘Summer cold!’ Everyone seems to be coming down with a cold in Britain even though its so hot outside! The problem is that even after all the usual symptoms are gone, there are many unfortunate people, like myself, that end up with Sinusitis. Its kind of like a parting gift from the cold virus that is definitely not wanted and so hard to shift!

I decided to write this weeks blog on what sinusitis is, its signs and symptoms and what I and HealthCare4All recommend to ‘Ease The Sneeze!’

What is sinusitis?

Sinusitis is a common condition in which the lining of the sinuses becomes inflamed. It’s usually caused by a viral infection and often improves within two or three weeks.

The sinuses are small, air-filled cavities behind your cheekbones and forehead.

The mucus produced by your sinuses usually drains into your nose through small channels. In sinusitis, these channels become blocked because the sinus linings are inflamed (swollen).

Signs and symptoms

Image result for what is sinusitisSinusitis usually occurs after an upper respiratory tract infection, such as a cold. If you have a persistent cold and develop the symptoms below, you may have sinusitis.

Symptoms of sinusitis include:

  • a green or yellow discharge from your nose
  • a blocked nose
  • pain and tenderness around your cheeks, eyes or forehead
  • a sinus headache
  • a high temperature (fever) of 38C (100.4F) or more
  • toothache
  • a reduced sense of smell
  • bad breath (halitosis)

Children with sinusitis may be irritable, breathe through their mouth, and have difficulty feeding. Their speech may also sound nasal (as though they have a stuffy cold).

The symptoms of sinusitis often clear up within a few weeks (acute sinusitis), although occasionally they can last three months or more (chronic sinusitis).

If you are currently suffering with a cold, sneezing, coughing or sinusitis, you are not alone! I have done all the research for you! So here are HealthCare4all’s recommended winter products to help.

Wash out your sinuses!

The first product is called NeilMed sinus rinse, and comes in an ideal starter pack for under £10

NeilMed #Sinus Rinse is a #natural #soothing saline #nasal wash. A large volume, low positive pressure nasal wash is the most effective way to irrigate the nose based on current medical studies. Daily rinsing is safe and will keep your nasal passages clean, healthy and open.

What does it help with?

  • Nasal Allergies, dryness and Hay Fever
  • Sinus Pressure & Nasal Stuffiness
  • Nasal Symptoms from Flu & Cold
  • Nasal Irritation from House Dust, Fumes, Animal Dander, Grass, Pollen, Smoke etc
  • Post Nasal Drip and Nasal Congestion

Its very easy to use but have a look at the video below to make sure you use it correctly! I personally use it and absolutely love that afterwards my sinuses feel so much clearer and pain free!

The Second product we recommend is one that we mentioned a few months ago. At this time of year we suggest that people should do all they can to help boost their immune system to fight off any flu, cold or virus that’s going round. One way is to take a supplement, and we recommend Revidox, as its the only Supplement that’s efficacy supported by clinical trials.

Revidox is an anti-aging Natural supplement that not only keep healthy cells healthy but also rapidly replaces your dead cells too.

REVIDOX+ Helps maintain healthy hair, skin and nails as well as adding to normal cognitive function. It is a natural product which is made from ingredients found in fruits, berries, grapes and of course red wine.

HealthCare4All believe that £34.99 for 60 capsules is a worthwhile investment into your health this hay fever season.

Give Sinus pain the Elbow!

The third product is The Original Qu-Chi Hayfever Band ®. It has been our top selling product for Hay fever for nearly 8 years, also has been the number one best seller on Amazon.co.uk for allergy products for FIVE years!

The reason I am mentioning it today is because we have had so many emails from customers telling us it really helped to clear their sinuses whilst they wore it. Customers have also told us its helped give them relief of symptoms from allergies to pets too. We love that its a drug free, natural product & has no side effects like drowsiness that you may get with antihistamines.

We think combined with the Neilmed Sinus Rinse, not only do your Sinuses have hay fever season covered but you will have all year round protection!

Its available from Healthcare4All for £12.95

This week I want to talk to you about a very common eye condition called Blepharitis. It can develop at any age and the main symptoms are that the edges of your eyelids become red and swollen. In most cases both eyes are affected, but often one eye is worse and generally its worse in the morning. Blepharitis isn’t contagious. Also, at this time of year there is so much pollen about. As we approach mid May, grass pollen season will start and if you get seasonal allergies you could be suffering with red, itchy swollen and dry eyes. The products below would be perfect for you!  I will write a post about seasonal allergies later this month with loads of advice and amazing products to give you some relief.

What are the Symptoms of Blepharitis?

INo automatic alt text available.t can develop at any age and symptoms include

  • crusting, swelling and redness of the eyelids
  • Dry eyes that have a gritty feeling and burning sensation
  • Light sensitivity and blurred vision
  • styes (an infection at the root of an eyelash) on the eyelid
  •  small ulcers on the eyelids
  • crusty eyelashes that stick together
  • uncomfortable to wear contact lenses

How to treat Blepharitis

Cleaning your eyelids to remove the crusts the eyelid margins and unblock the eyelid glands. To begin with you may need to clean your eyelids twice a day. You can do this by Using a warm compress – to make the oil produced by the glands around your eyes more runny.  Gently massaging your eyelids – to push the oils out of the glands. Cleaning your eyelids – to wipe away any excess oil and remove any crusts, bacteria, dust or grime that might have built up.
Unfortunately it is a long term condition that usually can not be cured so its a case of managing it. Even after the symptoms have gone it is a good idea to clean your eyelids at least a couple of times a week to reduce the chances of it recurring.  It is also suggested that daily eyelid-cleaning routine can help control the symptoms and prevent permanent scarring of the eyelid margins.

More severe cases may require antibiotics that are either applied to the eye or eyelid directly, or taken as tablets.

So what products do HealthCare4All recommend for Blepharitis?

Artificial Tear Drops to help with dry eye such as Hycosan Original Preservative-Free Lubricating Eye Drops. Hycosan Original (0.1% Sodium Hyaluronate) is a sterile preservative free eye drop which is ideal for mild to moderate symptoms of Dry Eye. It can be used for 6 months after first opening. We like the Hycosan product because this unique device also dispenses a single calibrated drop with each click, and as such it offers incredible value for money when compared to more traditional Preservative Free options.

  • Suitable for use with all contact lenses
  • No blurring of vision
  • Natural, soothing and well tolerated
  • Long lasting effect, due to high quality
  • Easy to use bottle
  • Suitable for use after eye surgery
  • The CoMod (Continous Mono Dose) system, keeps the contents sterile for 6 months from first opening and delivers a single equal sized drop (30µl) with each click.
  • For a 7.5ml bottle this equates to at least 225 drops per bottle or for a patient using it 3 times daily in both eyes, a 5+ week supply.
  • The Sodium Hyaluronate used in Hycosan is of an extremely high quality and this is evident by the viscosity (thickness) and the long lasting effects of the drop.
  • Uniquely, such high quality Sodium Hyaluronate, also allows this viscous, long lasting drop to cause no blurring of vision, which is a common problem with many viscous eye drops.
  • Hycosan is also unique, in that it is formulated using a citrate Buffer. The buffers acts to keep the pH of the solution neutral and maximise comfort in the eye. It also prevents the possible risk associated with Phosphate buffers used in some other

Without proper eyelid hygiene, conditions resulting in inflammation of the eyelids (such as blepharitis) and dry eyes may develop. Removing oil and debris from the eyelids with Ocusoft Lid Scrub, and, depending on the severity of the condition, possibly employing the use of antibiotics or antibacterial cleansers may help prevent or drastically reduce inflammation.

When to get medical advice

See your high-street optician (optometrist) if you have persistent symptoms of blepharitis that aren’t being controlled by simple eyelid hygiene measures.

They can examine you to check if the problem is caused by an underlying condition, or may refer you to an eye specialist.

Contact your optometrist or GP immediately if you have any severe symptoms. If this isn’t possible, visit your nearest accident and emergency (A&E) department.

Qu-Chi Hayfever Band 2012 Colours

by Margaret – Date Added: Sunday 01 July, 2012

I live in New Zealand, so I have a couple of months to go until the hayfever season kicks in. I did trial it for a couple of days, it was quite comfy but left red marks on my arm, however that won’t put me off using it when the time comes. Accupuncture works for me, so I’m hoping this band will to. It will be such a relief not to have to pop pills and potions. I couldn’t source the band in NZ, but was lucky enough to find ‘Healthcare4all’, they were excellent to deal with and my band..
