I wish that I had found this book when I was dealing with allergies. However, it has given me good tips for dealing with parts of my disease. I know that I have mentioned that this disease (Wegener's Granulomatosis) lowers the function of the lungs, sinuses, and kidneys through inflammatory auto-immune response.
In layman terms, it means that the white blood cells attack the blood vessels causing the blood vessels to shrink which damages lungs, sinuses, and kidneys. If this disease is not treated, then it can cause system failure, meaning that all the organs of the body can be affected causing death.
But, back to the book. This book has pictures of the sinuses. The sinuses are not organs, but are like open spaces in the head. Sinusitis is caused by infection, blockage, and swelling. A cold can cause the same problems as sinusitis.
In the book, the doctor writes about the various ways to deal with sinusitis and other sinus diseases, which include cleaning the sinuses, using medication, and possibly surgery. The doctor writes about the pros and cons of each treatment. Plus many diagrams to show the reader information about the sinuses.
I was really impressed with this book. It has helped me in my quest to sleep better at night. For some reason, my sinuses seem to clog in the evenings just as I try to go to sleep. I have learned to rinse out my sinuses at night.
So I recommend this book to anyone who has problems with sinusitis or other diseases that affect the sinuses. It can really help you to understand the best treatments for your problems.
