Can acoustic therapy help improve sinus health?

sinusonic Sinus Health Masterclass | Dr. Rodney Schlosser + David Lewis: Using Acoustic Energy To Clear Nasal Congestion Naturally (No Drugs!)Dr. Rodney Schlosser + David Lewis, founders of SinuSonic, join Josh Trent on the Wellness + Wisdom podcast, episode 579, to talk about the revolutionary device for optimal sinus health, how humming opens your nasal airways, why dairy can contribute to congestion, and the negative effects of mouth breathing.

“Humming, or acoustic vibration, is well known to increase the body's production of nasal nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and it's also a vasodialator. Monks hummed. Why were they doing that? To clear their head. Can we stimulate the vagus nerve with acoustic energy? Yes.” – David Lewis

Power Quotes From The Show

Nasal Obstructions Impair Your Cognitive Functions

“Nasal obstruction and nasal congestion are a super common problem that can be from allergic or non-allergic triggers, which affects 20-30% of population in the U.S. But it's not just nose problems. It affects your sleep and your cognitive ability. We've done studies on cognition and it impairs your cognition, your mood, you get depressed or anxious.” – Dr. Rodney Schlosser

Avoid Environments That Trigger Sinus Issues

“Dairy's probably the number one thing I hear about that creates thick mucus, thick flam, throat clearing… If you can avoid environments that are going to cause triggers, whether you're allergic or not, then do that. Stay in a healthy clean environment. Rinse your nose out with saline and flush things out.”Dr. Rodney Schlosser

The Negative Effects of Mouth Breathing

“Nasal obstruction will force you to become a mouth breather at night. You can get more cavities because now your mouth is all dry. There's something called the adenoid face. Kids have big adenoids in the back with their tonsils and if it obstructs the nose and they become a mouth breather, it actually changes the shape of their face.”Dr. Rodney Schlosser
