The Lancet: “Antibiotics are not justified.”

A special report published in our Spring 2008 Nautilus newsletter

This spring, a top British medical journal confirmed observations by physicians and patients worldwide that antibiotics are simply not effective for sinus problems. The March 15 2008 issue of The Lancet published the research of Dr. Jim Young of the Basel Institute for Clinical Epidemiology which summarized the outcomes of 2,547 patients in nine clinical trials. Amazingly, Dr. Young and his Swiss colleagues discovered that 15 patients with sinusitis-like complaints would have to be given antibiotics before an additional patient was cured.

In an interview with Web-MD, Dr. Young put it this way, “We found that overall, you would need to treat 15 patients … for one patient to benefit.” If Dr. Young is correct, 15 out of 16, or 94%, will not get well with standard treatment. The study was so newsworthy that both CNN and the BBC aired segments breaking the story worldwide. In their report, the BBC quotes study co-author Dr. Ian Williamson who said, “Antibiotics really don’t look as if they work.”

Sanford Guide 2007: “Antibiotics usually not effective.”

Dr. Jim Young and his colleagues at the Basel Institute aren’t saying anything that doctors haven’t known for years. In fact, the “bible” for antimicrobial therapy, The Sanford Guide 37ed published in late 2006 states for chronic sinusitis, “antibiotics usually not effective.” To put this in perspective, imagine a hammer with a stamp that reads, “Not effective for nails.” Would you buy that hammer? Unfortunately, millions of us with sinus trouble do.

Note from Dr. Frank Aversano: Often, the olfactory plate (smell zone in the upper nasal passages) is obstructed by several years of mucous crusting. CR is one of many who have at least some resolution of non-neurologic loss of smell after a series of Sinus Ninja treatments.

Swimmers Ear helped by Sinus Ninja treatments

“I had to stop scuba diving and I found plane rides difficult because I could not clear my ears. I now can easily clear them.

The combined effect of the REST treatments [and Dr. Denton’s eustachian tube manipulation] have made my ears and sinuses the clearest they’ve been in 20 years. I feel great. Even blowing my nose feels more complete.”

Sinus infection – not after a Sinus Ninja treatment!

“When I get an attack of seasonal allergies, it almost always seems to turn into a sinus infection. Well, not this time! After just one REST I feel like a new person. My sinuses are clear and refreshed without medications.

Medications may temporarily open up my nasal passages, but the REST has gotten rid of the ‘trapped stuff’ feeling in my face. Drainage is way more healing than blockage.”

Neti pot “No,” Sinus Ninja treatment “YES.”

“As a health care provider, I’m sold on the REST treatments as an effective alternative to neti pots and saline rinses. After using my neti pot, I felt a sensation of ‘trapped’ salt water in my nose and sinuses.

After constantly tasting salt water and feeling it drip down my throat, I decided to give the REST a try. Well, no more neti pot! From now on, I’ll handle my colds and flu’s – treatment and prevention – at Nova Sinus Center.”
