Almost All Sinus Infections are Misdiagnosed and Mistreated

Almost All Sinus Infections are Misdiagnosed and Mistreated
It appears, based on our experiences and research, that much of the medical community is stuck in a time warp when it comes to fungal illnesses—even in regard to the notably researched and highly publicized condition of fungal-induced sinusitis.” (Mold: The War Within, by Kurt and Lee Ann Billings)
In the 1990s the Mayo Clinic published findings from a study that suggests that NEARLY ALL chronic sinusitis (inflammation of the membranes of your nose and sinus cavities) is caused by mold, but blamed on bacteria—then mistreated using antibiotics. In fact, according to their study, 96% of the people who suffer from chronic sinusitis are “fungal sensitized,” which means that they have an immune response that is triggered by inhaling fungal organisms.
The incidence of chronic sinusitis has been increasing because most physicians still believe that bacteria and not mold is the cause. As a result, Doctors prescribe antibiotics which do not provide long term relief.
If you suffer from a chronic sinus infection, you may want to have your home inspected for mold, which is probably the root cause of the problem.

    Good to know! Thanks Sanjay!!!! As you can tell from my name and blog, I’m a chronic sinus case. It’s time to think about mold….However, I’ve lived in over 20 apartments and 5 childhood homes and my sinuses behaved the same in every case…I find it hard to believe that every dwelling had mold that caused the sinus condition…Any ideas?

      Sinus Sister, thanks for your great comment. I have one quick question for you: Do you feel better when you are away from the apartments or houses that you lived in? Believe it or not, 40% of all the homes have mold issues (Pollution Probe). The incidence in commercial and institutional buildings is 30%, so you may have an acute sensitivity to mold.
