Body Talk -12th February

Mr Tony Owa joined me this evening. He is an ear, nose and throat specialist from Spire Hartswood.

Sinus problems affect so many of us today. These passages should be clear, but too often they get clogged causing severe head pain and dizziness. The causes are numerous. Allergies can inflame this area, leading to extreme discomfort. They can become blocked as a result of colds and infection, or sometimes growths in and around this area can impair their function.

Good ways to keep the sinuses clear are cleansing them with salt water. In yoga we call this practise neti. Or you could try inhaling menthol vapours which soothe and heal.

Dizziness can be the result of blocked sinuses or there are many other conditions, some more serious than others which can affect your balance. We talked about conditions such as vertigo, labyrinthitusand menieres disease. These are alll treatable by Tony, but can have very similar symptoms.

Ear problems amongst children are something that he sees a lot of. With good medical care and advice, these conditions can be cured and often children will grow out of more minor problems.

If you suffer from any of the above, or even just the odd dizzy spell, Tony's advice is to get it checked out by a professional. He would be happy to see you and put your mind at rest. If you have any questions or comments, then contact me at Phoenix98fm.
