If you are one of the lucky one’s that don’t have any sinus issues you can stop reading here. To all of you desperate sinuses suffers that I hear from weekly, keep reading… I have some news! Doug Kaufmann (from Know The Cause) recently had Dr Dennis, an ENT from Atlanta on his show. Turns out he is the same doctor who preformed my adenoidectomy/tonsillectomy back in 1999. After hearing him speak, I realized he is seemingly one of the only physicians that actually has an alternative to surgery and antibiotics! He said people with chronic sinusitis are 9,000 times more allergic to mold/fungus (wow). He has been doing research into the treatment of chronic sinusitis for more than 30 years and has created products which make our bodies less susceptible to the mold we are breathing in, giving your body a chance to fight the fungus. This week I am flying to Atlanta for an appointment with him. He will be my fifth and final opinion before giving into surgery #5. Stay tuned for next week’s post and I’ll fill you in on all of the details. There may be hope for us all!
UPDATE: Wow, what a difference less than a year makes. Since this post last November, not only did I end up being interviewed on the show I spoke about above, I am also infection free after decades of chronic infections and am blessed to be given the opportunity to pass on what I’ve learned!
