Avoiding Sinus Surgery

Avoiding Sinus Surgery With Nasal Rinsing

By Dr. Hana

I sat in an audience of physicians, listening to an ear, nose and throat surgeon as he reviewed his favorite sinus surgery techniques. This well-respected doctor was educating family physicians and pediatricians about when and how to refer patients to him for invasive sinus surgery. Of course, he summarized which medications to try first, when to refer patients for allergy shots and, finally, when he believed it was time to go “under the knife.” His take on allergies, which often leads to chronic sinus issues, was to treat with prescription medications and then “surgerize” the area. Once in the surgery suite, he would irrigate the sinuses. Sitting there, listening to him describe surgeries we’d all like to avoid, I asked myself: Why not irrigate the diseased area before one seeks the surgeon or the surgery? Why not wash at the first sign of discomfort? For that matter, why not wash the body’s filter daily to prevent illness all together?

I am a physician, but I am also a mother and a person with common sense. This surgeon and I actually agree: The solution to pollution is dilution. If a hand is dirty, one washes the dirt off, the solution is dilution. An infected wound is first approached with washing and diluting as well. We know that often just washing with ocean water will prevent a secondary infection. Why? The salt! We need to dilute first, and then add the correct balance of salt mixture. For the nose, the ideal buffered salt mixture has several noteworthy benefits. First, hypertonic buffered saline will thin thickened secretions, making it easier to remove the mucus. Next, these solutions shrink swollen membranes, the underlying cause of infections. Thirdly, salty mixtures will remove 80 % of the allergens, the particles that cause allergy symptoms in the first place! Washing with salty rinses can improve the filtering mechanism of the nose, naturally. No risk to washing and potentially great benefit of avoiding the knife. 

Perhaps the most important benefit has to do with the infectious particles trapped in our personal filter. We have known for centuries that salt will inhibit bacterial growth, virus as well as fungal infections. Our grandmothers would often sniff salt water at the first sign of congestion. They definitely had common sense! Enough salt will preserve food for years. Without salt in our bodies, we would faint due to low blood pressure, and we would lack energy during crisis. Salt is truly a wonder drug! 

A great nose washing, daily, is akin to sending your nose for a quick swim but not having to change into a bathing suit. Salt water, like the ocean, has numerous health benefits. Anyone who has enjoyed an ocean swim knows this refreshing feeling. 

Surgery can be miraculous when it’s really needed, but as any surgery, it should be considered the last resort. Why not try to avoid it? Let nasal washing help you stay healthy, breathe clearly and feel good without the risks or the side effects of medications or surgery. Dilution is the solution to pollution! 

Be Well, Dr. Hana
