Sinusitis may be caused by a bacterial or a viral infection. Conventional medicine frequently prescribes antibiotics for both types of sinusitis although it is popular belief that viruses are not affected by antibiotics.For relief of sinusitis, Euphorbium Sinus ReliefTM is a homeopathic preparation that has had its effectiveness proven in several studies. An in vitro study of Euphorbium Sinus Relief nasal spray examined its effect against pathogens causing various viral infections – influenza A, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1). This study showed that in vitro, Euphorbium Sinus Relief has antiviral effects against RSV and HSV-1. In addition, an antiviral effect against influenza A virus, although minimal, was also noted. 1A double-blind trial against placebo demonstrated superior action of Euphorbium Sinus Relief nasal spray for patients with chronic sinusitis. 2In a study of 670 patients with chronic sinusitis, patients treated with Euphorbium Sinus Relief oral drops showed a fast and significant improvement in their disease status, documented by the moment of first improvement and the overall efficacy assessment of investigators and patients. 3In all the studies, Euphorbium Sinus Relief has been associated with extremely few side effects: swelling, reddening of facial skin, drowsiness or dizziness. These are quite insignificant when compared to side effects of antihistamines and antibiotics.Clearly, Euphorbium Sinus Relief (available in nasal spray, liquid drops and oral vials) is a valuable ally in the fight against sinusitis.References1) Metelmann H, Glatthaar-Saalmüller B.
