NasoPure Nasal Wash Kit
Chronic sinusitis is an extremely common and troublesome condition, yet symptoms are often dismissed as being due to the common cold or a bout of flu, even by medical doctors! The suggested treatment simply rest and painkillers... I became interested in finding out more about chronic sinusitis and how best to treat it after becoming suspicious my wife was suffering from the condition. She was developing the telltale symptoms every month or two, and despite working as a teacher in a school where viral infections frequently infect much of the staff and student body, I couldn't believe she was catching every single infection going - every time. Things began to fall into place when I read a highlighted statement on the website SinusitisWellness.com run by sinus specialist, Donald Dennis, M.D. The statement reads: "We believe the true cause of chronic sinusitis is an allergic reaction to MOLD.

Natural Mold Removal Products
Mold and the illness it causes can be hugely stubborn to get rid of unless an appropriate and comprehensive protocol is put in place. That's not to say this needs to be a complicated or difficult process however. In this article you will learn of 5 simple steps you can take to get on top of the problem for good! To me it seems logical that if you want to treat mold-related illnesses such as chronic sinusitis, you first need to ensure your home environment, work (as much as possible) and even your car are free from mold so you are not constantly re-exposing yourself and/or your family to the source of your ill-health. None of us want to waste money on products that simply treat our recurring symptoms before the root cause of our illness is addressed, do we? This type of approach is also prudent for other environmental and...

Damp floor and walls after a pipe burst
Being a homeowner is never easy, especially when you're dealing with chronic illness, and the last thing you need are major unexpected problems. Unfortunately, that's exactly what my wife and I suffered recently when a central heating pipe burst and flooded our main living room. Aside from the immediate inconvenience of moving bulky furniture and fixing the leak, I soon began to worry about other consequences, particularly the possibility of persistent mold growth and the potential consequences for our health. Mold and its spores are nothing to be sniffed at - excuse the pun! As a study published in the journal Environment International explains, exposure to these mycotoxins has been linked to cancer, kidney disease, liver disease and immunosuppression. The last of these includes illnesses such as chronic sinusitis, which my wife suffers from (and is currently treating with the Breathe Easy Kit), and possibly chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) which I have lived with for 25 years; in...

Mold and condensation on a window
As regular readers will be aware, I was unlucky enough to be struck down with a chronic illness as severe and life-changing as chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) at the age of just 11 years old. But was it really just "bad luck" or did environmental factors - specifically toxic mold exposure - play a role? This is something I've been considering carefully lately and wish to share with you.  Being just a child at the time, I obviously wasn't concerned with the "hows and whys" of what caused this annoying and frustrating illness, or the ramifications it would ultimately have for me and my family. All I wanted was my family doctor to give me some medicine to cure whatever was wrong. He had of course done so many times before for the recurrent ear, nose and throat infections I'd experienced growing up (mold-related themselves perhaps?). Surely I'd be back riding my BMX on the...

Athlete's foot under microscope
The best example of professional predisposition to toenail infection can be seen in runners.

Electronic Cigarettes & the Vaping 'Trend’: Does Science Support Health Benefits?

A man smoking an e-cigarette
It wasn’t a 100% victory and there’s still a long way to go, but Public Health England dropped a bombshell in August. Seemingly out of nowhere, one of the most important health bodies in the country declared that not only are e-cigarettes 95% less harmful than tobacco, but could also become an important weapon in fighting smoking by being dispensed as a licensed medicine. Veteran vapers enjoyed a wry smile and carried on – because it was not really news to them. Anti-tobacco campaigners, cancer sufferers, health practitioners and e-cigarettes traders and scientists have long held the belief that replacing a stick that contains several thousand toxins with one that contains far fewer can only be a healthier option. Surely? What the PHE statement did do was bring vaping back into the public consciousness, or introduce some people to it in the first place. BBC Radio 5 live ran a...

Laser Eye Surgery and its Effects on Astigmatism

Laser Eye Surgery Options
Laser eye surgery is also referred to as laser corneal sculpting. It’s actually a medical procedure that normally makes use of a laser in order to reshape the surface of the eye. The main aim of undertaking this kind of surgery is to improve or actually correct hypermetropia (long sightedness), myopia (short-sightedness) and astigmatism (uneven curvature of the eye’s surface). Those individuals who undergo laser eye surgery still need to wear glasses or contact glasses regardless of the fact that their natural eye sight will have improved to greater extent. Laser corneal sculpting procedures were for the first time performed over 30 years ago. The cornea is basically the transparent tissue that cover the front of the eye. It aids in control focusing. During this surgery, a computer-controlled excimer laser is normally used to remove microscopic amounts of tissue from the cornea. The ultimate aim of this is to restore...
