Rapid Relief from Sinus Congestion and Face Pain
The Sinus Tapping and Lymph Drainage
Technique - a 1 minute self help treatment plan
Frequently Asked Questions - your sinus questions answered
I've had chronic sinusitis for 20 years will your technique help me?
Yes and no. It won't help you recover the last 20 years, but it may mean that the next 20 is not so painful and uncomfortble as you have been in the past. The question, I think, is really saying, I've tried everything I can think of, and my doctor has given me, and nothing has worked. So convince me this is different. In reality, you're not treating 20 years worth of sinusitis, even though the mind and body sees it that way, you're only treating the latest episode. So stop talking yourself out of a cure and make the decision to take action - NOW!
I have constant headaches; won't the tapping make it worse?
Not normally. Sinus headaches are the result of compression and possible infection. Tapping starts to shift blockages and allows any pressure building mucus to drain away.
Does this tapping thing really work?
Of course it does! How do you get the last drop out of a sauce bottle? You tap the base, and if it's loose enough you catapult sauce all over your chips. If it's clinging to the sides you notice it runs faster. Either way the bottle gradually empties. Same thing with your sinuses.
Can children use the Sinus Tapping Technique?
Yes, the technique is perfectly safe for children to use too! Many of the testimonials I receive are from parents who are using the technique on their children, and having fantastic results with it. You can tap on your children, or you can teach them to tap on themselves, either way is both safe and effective.
What are our sinuses?
The sinuses are small cavities in the skull that are normally filled with air. They produce mucus, which helps keep the nasal passages clear of allergens and pollutants.
What is Sinusitis?
Sinusitis is the result of an inflammation of the tissue that lines these cavities, or infection to one or more of the sinus cavities in the cheek, nose, eye or forehead areas. Our sinuses are small, air filled cavities of bone located in the skull and this swelling blocks off the sinuses, trapping mucus and air inside them. This can cause pain and pressure; sometimes, it can lead to bacterial infection. Sinusitis has become one of the most common health conditions affecting millions of people annually.
What is the difference between acute, recurrent and chronic sinusitis?
Acute: An infection lasting for up to three-four weeks. Whether itís caused by a cold, an infection or allergies, symptoms of acute sinusitis include:
Chronic: Sinusitis that can last more than twelve weeks and even linger for years. The symptoms of chronic sinusitis are:
- Pressure or pain behind the eyes or cheeks
- Pain in the top teeth and/or into the cheek bone
- Green or yellow nasal discharge
- Post nasal drip
- Difficulty breathing through the nose
- Decreased sense of smell
- Restlessness during the night
With chronic sinusitis frequent use of medications can cause added problems, such as:
- Allergies and bacterial infections
- Facial pressure and pain
- Severe sore throat and halitosis
- Restlessness and discomfort throughout the night AND day
- Persistent headaches
- Thick discolored mucus
- Blocked nasal passages and congestion
Recurrent: Sinusitis that occurs in several repeated episodes such as regular attacks during the year. The symptoms for recurrent sinusitis are the same as for acute and chronic sinusitis. Episodes of recurrent sinusitis are caused mainly by an allergic reactions to different stimuli through the year, such as, different weather conditions, pet or animal hair, household dust, dust mites, mould, plant pollen, direct bacterial infection, allergies or a compromised/confused immune system etc.
- More infectious forms of bacteria and new fungal infections taking a hold, requiring stronger and more diverse antibiotics or cortisone spray.
- A rebound effect causing chronic and resistant inflammation to the nasal mucosa
- Drug resistance and unusual side effects
A final note: Often, the best sinusitis treatment is a combination of different approaches tried over time - typically medication combined with self-care which involves using The Sinus Tapping and Lymph Drainage Technique on a regular basis. Many people write to tell me that after using the instructions on the DVD, they no longer need to use their medications. Even if you manage to cut your meds by 50%, I still think it's worth doing the tapping and lymph exercise on the DVD. All the best, Phil
"Dear Phil, Thank you for sending "The Sinus Tapping and Lymph Drainage Technique" DVD so expediently. I have chronic sinusitis, and have been on antibiotics several times. Your DVD has been a real eyeopener, I have been applying your technique for a few days now, and the swelling in one of my eyelids has been greatly reduced. Also my breathing through the nose has improved.... I am excited about the improvements that I have experienced,... Thank you very kindly." John L., Ontario, Canada
"Hi Phil, I would like to thank you very much for your help. I have been off the drugs now for ten days, that is a long time for me. The Sinus Chart has helped me very much and I would like to tell all your readers, if that is possible. Thanks, from Jason.
p.s. I would recommend this tapping technique to anyone out there with sinus congestion. The drugs weren't working and I lost hope in seeing any light. There is hope and light out there so why not give Phil's disc a try. It worked for me, Thank you Phil." Jason Hawkins - Exeter, England, UK
"Dear Phil, Many thanks for the prompt delivery of my sinus disc. I have followed your instructions and suggestions closely and can report a substantial abatement in my sinusitis. Although it is very much in retreat I will continue with the treatment in an effort to maintain this good result throughout the summer. I shall report back periodically, as you suggest, and pray that I will continue to have positive news. With Warmest wishes to you and your family." Greg Sutton - Brighton and Hove, UK
