Default Sinusitis - When All Else Fails........

.........try Nasal Humming. Low level nasal humming generates nitric oxide in the sinuses and clears the swelling according to George Eby(cured his cardiac arrythmias as well.) Probably the most effective way of humming to ensure the maximum vibrations to the nasal passages would be to purse the lips and bring them up to the base of the nostrils whilst humming.


Strong humming for one hour daily to
terminate chronic rhinosinusitis in four days:
A case report and hypothesis for action
by stimulation of endogenous nasal nitric oxide

Eby Research, 14909-C Fitzhugh Road, Austin, TX 78736, United States

Received 13 November 2005; accepted 17 November 2005

Summary Rhinosinusitis is an inflammation or infection of the nose and air pockets (sinuses) above, below and between the eyes which connect with the back of the nose through tiny openings (ostia). Rhinosinusitis can be caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi (molds) and possibly by allergies.

Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is an immune disorder caused by fungi. The immune response produced by eosinophils causes the fungi to be attacked, which leads to damage of the sinus membranes, resulting in full-blown rhinosinusitis symptoms. Gaseous nitric oxide (NO) is naturally released in the human respiratory tract. The major part of NO found in exhaled air originates in the nasal airways, although significant production of NO also takes place in the paranasal sinuses.

Proper ventilation is essential for maintenance of sinus integrity, and blockage of the ostium is a central event in pathogenesis of sinusitis. Concentrations of NO in the healthy sinuses are high. Nasal NO is known to be increased 15- to 20-fold by humming compared with quiet exhalation. NO is known to be broadly antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial.

This case report shows that a subject hummed strongly at a low pitch (~130 Hz) for 1 h (18 hums per minute) at bedtime the first night, and hummed 60—120 times 4 times a day for the following 4 days as treatment for severe CRS. The humming technique was described as being one that maximally increased intranasal vibrations, but less than that required to produce dizziness.

The morning after the first 1-h humming session, the subject awoke with a clear nose and found himself breathing easily through his nose for the first time in over 1 month. During the following 4 days, CRS symptoms slightly reoccurred, but with much less intensity each day. By humming 60—120 times four times per day (with a session at bedtime), CRS symptoms were essentially eliminated in 4 days.

Coincidentally, the subject's cardiac arrhythmias (PACs) were greatly lessened. It is hypothesized that strong, prolonged humming increased endogenous nasal NO production, thus eliminating CRS by antifungal means.
