Problems with sinuses have been linked to triggering or possibly even a cause of  Meniere’s Disease.

Denise who is part of our support team recently published a very good post on her blog regarding sinuses and how to safely clear them. Steaming is preferable to  saline sprays.

Denise says that if she used any sort of saline spray she would get ringing in the ears badly and dizziness . She reminds us that saline sprays have a great potential to drift straight to the ears!  This is something we totally do not want because it contributes to the vicious cycle of Meniere’s symptoms!  She says she is no longer fooled when they say that saline solution is safe because there is no ‘so called’ medication ingredients.  I found this very eye-opening but not surprising: 

Denise has some very good advice in her post. When we have congestion in the sinuses we may think there is something inside..however, sometimes it is just the swelling that occurs due to infection, irritants, or histamine reactions.

Allergies from pollen in the air and sinus problems seem to be a factor with many people. Hay fever and other airborne allergens, causing inflammation around the nasal passage and sinuses and clogging up the ears with pollen would seem an obvious candidate and many people do seem to have problems with this.

Wearing a mask during allergy seasons and steaming the sinuses clear regularly can help.

So true, Mike! Saline is no solution because it can make symptoms much worse! I have found that Steaming or pure gentle cleansing works so much better when it comes to clearing the sinuses. Also, medications can worse symptoms also because they can be very drying and the key is keeping the respiratory..throat, eyes, lungs, sinus cavities moist in order to not plug up because dryness breads infection so then can plug up. This can also lead to breathing difficulties and so can impair proper blood flow as well.
