Rhinitis

Overview

If you have rhinitis, the inside of your nose will become inflamed, causing symptoms such as a build-up of mucus in the nasal cavities and a blocked or runny nose.
You may also feel pressure or pain in your nose. Rhinitis is often caused by an allergic reaction to a substance such as pollen. This is known as allergic rhinitis.
Non-allergic rhinitis is where the nasal lining becomes swollen and inflamed due to causes other than allergy.

There are different types of non-allergic rhinitis including:

  • viral or infectious rhinitis – caused by an infection, such as the common cold
  • vasomotor rhinitis – where blood vessels in your nose are over-sensitive; certain environmental triggers, such as cold weather or smoke, can cause them to expand, causing congestion
  • atrophic rhinitis – where membranes inside your nose thin and harden, causing  nasal passages to widen and dry out; foul-smelling crusts form inside your nose and you may lose your sense of smell; atrophic rhinitis can sometimes occur as a complication of nasal surgery or as a result of infection
  • rhinitis medicamentosa – caused by overuse of nasal decongestants, which should not be used for more than a few days

Allergic Rhinitis often causes cold-like symptoms, such as sneezing, itchiness and a blocked or runny nose.

The symptoms usually begin soon after exposure to an allergen.

Some people only experience allergic rhinitis for a few months at a time because the allergens they are sensitive to, such as tree or grass pollen, are only produced at certain times of the year. Other people experience the condition all year round because they are sensitive to non-seasonal allergens, such as animal fur.

Most people with allergic rhinitis have mild symptoms that can be easily and effectively treated. However, for some, symptoms can be severe and persistent, causing sleep problems and interfering with everyday life.

Allergic rhinitis is caused by an allergic reaction to an allergen, such as pollen, dust and certain animals. It can result because of an oversensitive immune system.
In cases of allergic rhinitis, the immune system reacts to an allergen as if it were harmful. The immune system is the body’s natural defence against infection and illness.
If your immune system is oversensitive, it will react to allergens by producing antibodies to fight them off. Antibodies are special proteins in the blood that are usually produced to fight viruses and infections.
Allergic reactions do not occur the first time you come into contact with an allergen. The immune system has to recognise and ‘memorise’ it before producing antibodies to fight it. This process is known as sensitisation.
After you develop sensitivity to an allergen, whenever it comes into contact with the inside of your nose and throat, it will be detected by antibodies called immunoglobulin E (IgE).
These cause cells to release a number of chemicals (including histamine), which cause the symptoms of allergic rhinitis, such as:

  • swelling of the mucus membrane (the inside layer of your nose) – which blocks the airway and causes congestion
  • production of excess mucus – which occurs as a result of the swelling and causes sneezing and a runny nose

There are a number of common allergens which can trigger allergic rhinitis – breathing in tiny particles of these allergens is enough to set it off. The most common airborne allergens that cause rhinitis are described below.

House Dust Mites:
House dust mites are tiny insects that feed on the dead flakes of human skin. They can be found in mattresses, carpets, soft furniture, pillows and beds.
Rhinitis is not caused by the dust mites themselves, but by a chemical found in their excrement. Dust mites are present all year round, although their numbers tend to peak during the winter.

Tree and Grass Pollen:
Tiny particles of pollen produced by trees and grasses can sometimes cause allergic rhinitis.
Most trees pollinate between early to mid spring. Grasses pollinate at the end of spring and beginning of summer.

Animals:
Many people are allergic to animals, such as cats and dogs.
It is not animal fur that causes the allergic reaction, rather flakes of dead animal skin and their urine and saliva.
Dogs and cats are the most common culprits, although some people are affected by horses, cattle, rabbits and rodents, such as guinea pigs and hamsters.

Work-Related Allergens:
Some people are affected by allergens found in their work environment, such as wood dust, flour dust or latex.

At Risk Groups:
It is not fully understood why some people become oversensitive to allergens. However, some people are more likely to develop an allergy because it runs in their family.
If this is the case, you are said to be atopic or to have atopy. People who are atopic are more likely to develop allergies because they produce more IgE antibodies than other people.
Environmental factors also seem to play a part. Studies have shown certain things may increase the chance of a child developing allergies. These include:
• growing up in a house where people smoke
• exposure to dust mites
• exposure to pets
• using antibiotics
Non-allergic rhinitis occurs when the nasal lining becomes swollen and inflamed, usually due to both swollen blood vessels and an accumulation of fluid in the tissues of the nose.
Blood vessels inside your nose help to control the flow of mucus by expanding and narrowing. Swelling of the nasal lining causes congestion and stimulates the mucus glands in the nose, resulting in the typical symptoms of nasal obstruction, catarrh (a build-up of fluid in the nasal cavities) and a runny nose.

There are several possible causes of non-allergic rhinitis including:

Viral Rhinitis:
In cases of viral rhinitis, a virus attacks the lining of the nose and throat, resulting in it becoming inflamed and triggering the production of mucus.

Vasomotor Rhinitis:
For reasons that are unknown, people with vasomotor rhinitis have very sensitive nasal blood vessels. Environmental triggers can make the blood vessels expand, leading to congestion and a build-up of mucus. Common triggers include:
• chemical irritants, such as smoke, perfume or paint fumes
• changes in the weather, such as a drop in temperature
• alcohol
• spicy food
• stress

Atrophic Rhinitis:
Inside your nose, there are three ridges of bone covered by a layer of tissue. These layers of tissue are called turbinates. Atrophic rhinitis can occur if the turbinates become damaged.
Turbinates can be damaged by infection, although this is rare in the UK. Bacteria usually responsible for atrophic rhinitis, known as Klebsiella ozenae, are mainly found in India, China and Egypt.
Turbinates play an important role in the functioning of your nose by:
• keeping the inside of your nose moist
• protecting the body from being infected with bacteria
• regulating the air pressure of oxygen you breathe in
• containing important nerve endings that are used to transmit information, such as smells, to your brain
If a certain amount of turbinates are damaged or removed, the remaining tissue will become dry, crusty and prone to infection.
If you have atrophic rhinitis, you may also experience shortness of breath, because the turbinates are no longer able to regulate air pressure effectively and your lungs have to work harder to receive air. Many people also lose their sense of smell (anosmia).
The amount of turbinates that can be lost before atrophic rhinitis develops will differ from person to person. Some people lose a large amount of turbinates and never develop the condition, whereas others develop the condition after losing a small number of turbinates.

Rhinitis Medicamentosa:
Rhinitis medicamentosa is caused by the overuse of nasal decongestant sprays. It can also occur as a complication of cocaine misuse.
Nasal decongestants work by reducing the swelling of the blood vessels in your nose. However, if decongestant sprays are used for longer than five to seven days at a time, they can cause the lining of your nose to swell up again, even after the cold or allergy that originally caused the problem has passed.
If you use more decongestants in an attempt to reduce the swelling, it is likely to make the problem worse. This is sometimes known as ‘rebound congestion’.
It is possible to get locked into a cycle of overuse and dependence on nasal decongestants, in a similar way to becoming addicted to drugs.

Hormonal Imbalance:
Non-allergic rhinitis can also be caused by hormonal changes due to pregnancy, puberty or taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT) or the contraceptive pill. An underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism) is another possible cause.
It is thought that hormones play a role in the enlargement of the nasal blood vessels that can lead to rhinitis.

As with all diseases this did not happen overnight. The very first thing you must do is see a licensed health professional. Find a list of practitioners in your local area here.

Health Protocols

Detoxification Therapy:

  • Do the Hydrogen Peroxide Protocol to strengthen the immune system:

Ayurvedic Medicine

As always the fastest most effective way to receive tailored advice to your own situation, you should visit a local licensed practitioner. Find your closest Ayurvedic practitioners here.

Here are some remedies that your practitioner may suggest:

Ayurveda believes that allergic rhinitis can best be taken care of by taking certain dietary and lifestyle precautions. Certain foods are more mucous producing and should be avoided – these are Kapha such as  dairy, wheat, sugar, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, bananas, oranges, and grapefruits. Food additives like artificial dyes and different preservatives also play major factors. Instead, choose dry grains like chickpeas, kala channa, corn, fish like salmon, trout, cod are better choices. Tea with cardamom, pepper and ginger, lemon juice and honey work effectively. Diet rich in lots of fruits and vegetable of different colors are recommended.

Yoga is also recommended because regular practice of certain types of Pranayamas like Bhastrika and Ujjai are really beneficial to the respiratory system.

Panchakarma-Vaman (the emesis therapy) and Virechan therapy (the laxatives therapy) are very effective to detoxify the body.

Ayurvedic herbs include: santalum, cardamom and licorice. These can be boiled in water (ratio 1:4) and reduced to quarter of the quantity, cooled and then drunk.

You might like to try the following ayurvedic home remedies:
1. A slice of ginger, pepper and cardamom can be made into an infusion with boiled water and drunk as a tea.

2. Mix honey with half the amount of lemon juice and take the mixture early in the morning for few weeks.

3. Take two spoons of Apple cider vinegar and a bit of honey to a glass of cooled boiled water and take it early in the morning.

4.  Take one cup of Indian gooseberry and mix with two tsp of honey. Have it twice a day.

5. Pouring two to three drops of coconut oil into the nostrils at bedtime could provide relief.
6. Taking two tablets of guduchi three times a day.

7. Try tea made from camphor, cloves and basil.
Amrutharishta, Sudarsanasava, Dasamoola kaduthryam qwath, Indukantham qwath and Amruthotharam qwath are all commonly used.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

To receive bespoke advice based upon your own situation you should visit a local licensed practitioner. Find your closest Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners here.

Here are some remedies that your practitioner may suggest:

According  to TCM, allergic rhinitis is due to an invasion of External Wind Cold or Heat (exopathogens) with an underlying Lung Qi deficiency that in some cases is further complicated by the deficiency of the Spleen or Kidney.

In the case of allergic rhinitis, the blockage of energy is situated in the lung meridian, for which the nose is considered an extension. Under normal conditions, the lungs can control respiration and ensure that one breathes freely through the nose and with an acute sense of smell. In TCM, the lungs are also responsible for dispersing energy throughout the body and for preventing pathogenic factors from invading the body.

These deficiencies can benefit from acupuncture and the ideal time to treat seasonal allergic rhinitis is at least one month before symptoms normally begin. Immediate relief will be experienced by some patients after only a few treatments, but others may need longer courses. For temporary relief of nasal congestion and itching, a few common acupoints can be massaged for a few minutes several times a day with the fingertips: Yintang (located right between the eyebrows), Yinxiang or LI 20 (located on the nasolabial groove adjacent to the nostrils), and finally Hegu or LI4, (located on the back of the hand between the thumb and index finger).

The following Chinese herbs which can be decocted in water for oral administration are also beneficial for alleviating symptoms:

ginseng, schizonepeta, chebula fruit, platycodon root, eardust of yellow croaker, dahurian angelica root, asarum herb, licorice root, astragalus root.

Bimmine a Chinese herbal formula was shown in a study to diminish some year round allergic rhinitis symptoms. The study was conducted for 12 weeks. Participants took the formula five times a day; the study shows bimmine was effective up to one year. This formula is composed of several types of herbs such as Chinese skull cap (scutellaria baicalensis), Ginkgo biloba, horny goat weed (epimedium sagittatum), Japanese apricot (pronus mume) and other herbs. This herb is also used with acupuncture to treat allergies.

Aromatherapy

The following essential oils are particularly beneficial for allergic rhinitis:

  • German chamomile (Matricaria recutita), high in oxides and is highly anti-inflammatory and considered a relaxant.
  • Wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens), highly anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic and an analgesic.
  • Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), high in esters and alcohols and an excellent analgesic, relaxant, and anti-inflammatory.
  • Roman chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile), Roman chamomile is sweeter and milder than its counterpart German chamomile, an excellent relaxant, antispasmodic and an anti-inflammatory.

You can diffuse the oils or directly inhale them. They can also be directly applied to the skin –  use them undiluted rubbed on the body or diluted and massaged over a larger area of the body. Try putting one of the oils directly under your nose or rubbing it on your upper chest.

Use 4 drops of essential oil per 25ml of carrier oil.

To ensure positive results, always check that the essential oil is a 100% pure plant distillation and that it comes from a reputable source.

Homeopathic Medicine

Owing to the principles behind homeopathy it is essential you see a licensed practitioner to receive your own personalised prescription.  Find your closest Homeopath here.

Here are some remedies that your practitioner may suggest:

For Allergic Rhinitis:

  • Allium cepa:  use when you have watery eyes and a clear nasal discharge that irritates the upper lip, along with sneezing and a tickling cough.
  • Arsenicum album: use when you have a burning, watery, runny nose with a stuffy, tickling feeling or if there is swelling below the eyes and a wheezy cough.
  • Euphrasia: helpful if the eyes are swollen and irritated with acrid tears or pus or if the eyes hurt from too much light.
  • Ferrum phosphoricum:  good in the early stages of any inflammation. Take when allergy symptoms start.
  • Gelsemium: take if you have a flushed and heavy-feeling face and if the nose is running with irritating watery discharge.
  • Natrum muriaticum: good for attacks of sneezing, watery eyes, clear nasal discharge that resembles egg white, and a loss of taste and smell.
  • Nux vomica: If the nose is alternately stuffed up (especially outdoors or at night) and running (indoors and in the daytime).
  • Sabadilla: good for sneezing, itching in the nose with irritating runny discharge, a feeling of a lump in the throat, and watery eyes.
  • Wyethia: take if you have an  itching feeling on the roof of the mouth and behind the nose—sometimes extending into the throat and ears

For Non-Allergic Rhinitis:

  • Kali bichromium:  one of the most commonly used remedies for rhinitis with sinus pain and congestion. It is indicated when pain and pressure is worse at the bridge of the nose and may shoot toward the corner of the eye. Mucus discharge is especially thick, ropey and gluey with a yellowish green color.
  • Pulsatilla:  used for rhinitis with more bland nasal discharge and congestion, and when sinus pain is worse at night, worse when standing or stooping and worse when applying heat. You may find that you have an associated pulsating headache and greenish discharge coming from the eyes.
  • Silica: used when the rhinitis pains improve with pressure to the area. Use when thinking, talking and noise aggravates the pain. Use silica for children that suffer from repeated sinus infections in an attempt to strengthen immunity.
  • Spigelia: use when rhinitis starts after an exposure to the cold or in cold, wet weather. Symptoms are relieved by cold applications and by lying down with the head propped up. Use spigelia for rhinitis when the symptoms are predominantly left-sided with a left-sided headache and sharp pain, according to “Homeopathy for Musculoskeletal Healing.”

 Homeopathy Dosage Directions:

Select the remedy that most closely matches the symptoms. In conditions where self-treatment is appropriate, unless otherwise directed by a physician, a lower potency (6X, 6C, 12X, 12C, 30X, or 30C) should be used. In addition, instructions for use are usually printed on the label.

Many homeopathic physicians suggest that remedies be used as follows: Take one dose and wait for a response. If improvement is seen, continue to wait and let the remedy work. If improvement lags significantly or has clearly stopped, another dose may be taken. The frequency of dosage varies with the condition and the individual. Sometimes a dose may be required several times an hour; other times a dose may be indicated several times a day; and in some situations, one dose per day (or less) can be sufficient.

If no response is seen within a reasonable amount of time, select a different remedy.

Herbs

The following herbs are beneficial:

Nettle – (Urtica dioica), is a popular remedy for allergies Dr Sharol Tilgner, a naturopathic physician and author of Herbal Medicine From the Heart of the Earth, calls nettle a nutritious herb that supports the natural function of the respiratory tract. It’s helpful for watery nasal discharges and itching that commonly occur with allergic rhinitis. Nettle is particularly useful for allergic rhinitis that occurs seasonally, also known as hay fever. The best effects from nettle are seen when the herb is used preventatively — to strengthen the respiratory tract and enhance the body’s natural ability to resist allergic rhinitis reactions. Nettle may be taken as a tea, liquid extract or capsule.

Eyebright – (Euphrasia officinalis), has an affinity for the eyes. According to Dr Tilgner, eyebright relieves redness and swelling in the eyes –  symptoms regularly associated with allergic rhinitis. In addition to relieving inflammation of the eyes, eyebright is also useful for inflamed nasal passages, such as with a stuffed nose, runny nose or congested sinuses. Eyebright can also be used preventatively, as it strengthens the tissues that line the sinuses. The plant’s aerial parts are used medically and their taste is both mildly bitter and slightly. Eyebright can be taken as a tea, liquid extract or capsule.

Horseradish – (Armoracia rusticana) is mainly used to clear the sinuses. According to Dr Tilgner, horseradish functions as an expectorant, meaning it thins otherwise thick mucous and promotes emptying of congested nasal passages. Clearing the sinuses diminishes the chances of developing sinus infections. Dr. Tilgner cautions that while horseradish works to relieve symptoms of allergic rhinitis in the short-term, it does not address the underlying cause of the condition. Horseradish should not be used for long periods of time.

Other

Butterbur – known as butter dock, is a plant that is grown in Europe, North America and Asia; it has a long history of relieving the symptoms associated with asthma and bronchitis. Research has shown that it is effective in reducing mucus build up, and is just as effective as common over the counter medication. Goldenseal

Goldenseal – known as yellow puccoon, Indian dye and turmeric root has proven effective in the treatment of allergic rhinitis. The active ingredient berberine has antibacterial and immune-enhancing properties that help eliminate symptoms such as sore throat.

Evening Primrose – has long being used for the treatment of allergic rhinitis. Its active ingredient is gamma-linolenic acid, an essential fatty acid that is effective in treating symptoms associated with allergies.

Grapeseed Extract – is also known as a natural anti-histamine. It inhibits the release of histamine in the body. For allergy sufferers, grape seed extract provides relief from a various allergic reactions, including rhinitis caused by irritants.

Nasal Wash – A nasal wash or irrigation can be particularly helpful in reducing the amount of mucus in the nasal passages. Saline solution is used to irrigate the nose. There are two methods for using a nasal wash. Lean over the sink, with the head down. Cup some saline solution in your hand and inhale the solution into the nose, one nostril at a time. Spit the excess into the sink and gently blow the nose. The other method uses a syringe or nasal irrigation device to insert the saline into the nose.

Collodial Silver – is a natural antibiotic with beneficial side effects. It is probably the most versatile and effective natural agent against bacteria.

Serrepeptase – digests non-living tissue, blood clots, cysts, arterial plaque and inflammation in all forms. It has had wide clinical use, spanning over 25 years throughout Europe and Asia. It is a viable, natural alternative to salicylates, ibuprofen and the more potent NSAIDs. Unlike these drugs, Serrapeptase is a naturally occurring, physiologic agent with no inhibitory effects on prostaglandins and is devoid of gastrointestinal side effects.

Reishi – is a superb tonic for people who suffer from chronic allergies. It has been classed as the highest value healing herb in China for thousands of years. “Serves to maintain life, promote health and long life because of its normalizing action, and causes no side effects, even when taken continuously…. continuous consumption of Reishi makes the body light and young, lengthens your life…”

Hemp Oil – has been touted as “Nature’s Perfect Food for Humanity”. The oil can be used as part of a nutritional programme to maintain and improve good health. With a pleasant nutty flavour, Hemp Seed Oil is ideal for use in salad dressings, mayonnaise, dips etc. Not suitable for frying as this reduces the benefits.

Zell Oxygen – has many years of successful clinical use behind it and can justly be described as an essential supplement. A more balanced and fundamental approach than oxygen therapy, and in almost all cases an essential part of a regenerative programme.

Yoga The physical postures and breathing exercises comprising the practice of yoga have long been proven by scientific research to promote feelings of relaxation while simultaneously strengthening the body. Research conducted since the 1970s has shown that regular yoga practice not only relieves stress, and stressful emotions such as anxiety and depression, but also improves blood pressure rates and overall cardiovascular health. Yoga is also effective for reducing pain, improving gastrointestinal and respiratory function, and for improving cognitive function and enhancing sight and hearing.

Note: If you are just beginning to explore yoga, it is recommended that you initially do so under the guidance of a trained yoga instructor who can guide you to become aware of the subtleties involved in each yoga posture as well as the corresponding method of breathing.

Qigong – Is a wonderful form of exercise, breath work and meditation to relieve stress and tension in the body.  See article section for more information about the art of qigong.
