Sinusitis

Acute sinusitis is one of the most common complaints of patients in the United States, with almost one billion cases reported annually. (1) Consumers in the US spend more $2 billion every year on over the counter and prescription medications and this is one of the most common causes for antibiotic prescriptions.

(2) Sinusitis is also a cause of time lost from work which carries a very high indirect cost. Sinusitis is often a community-acquired infection that occurs during the process of the common cold. The resulting inflammation of the mucosal tissue of the sinuses results in obstruction and epithelial damage. Clear guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment are challenging because many of the symptoms associated with sinusitis—congestion, pressure, a runny nose and sneezing—are nonspecific and are difficult to differentiate from those associated
with upper respiratory tract infections. Exhaustion, stress, and insufficient time away from work during the winter affect the body’s ability to fight infections. Viruses and bacteria often cause inflammation and swelling in the nasal mucosa that can be accompanied by either drainage or congestion or both; sometimes accompanied by headaches.

Sinusitis, a chronic inflammatory disease, affects patients' health-related quality of life and productivity. Patients are often faced with multiple treatment options and the degree of their health-related quality of life impairment is often the primary factor in determining a patient’s treatment choices and decisions. Patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) play an increasing important role in connecting the right intervention for an individual patient.

Complex homeopathic medications have repeatedly been shown to be safe and effective for the treatment of sinusitis and are an alternative to the use of antibiotics. The widespread prescription of antibiotics over the past three decades has led to the development of antibiotic resistance by many pathogens that appear to be responsible for sinus infections. Hevert Sinus Relief is a homeopathic medication that has been on the market since 2013 in the U.S. and since 2003 in Germany for the treatment of symptoms associated with sinusitis.
