A. VOGEL Sinna
Homeopathic remedy used for acute and chronic sinusitis, sinus congestion and inflammation with frontal headache, catarrh extending to frontal sinuses.
Sinusitis, an inflammatory and infectious disease of the sinuses, is more and more frequent. Often recurring and chronic, it may follow a cold or flu but may also happen by itself.
Allergic reactions of the mucous membranes accompanied by polyps often contribute to the development of sinusitis. A humid and cold climate, significant temperature variations and high levels of air pollution (outside pollution, recycled air) promote the development of sinus infections. Milk products and food allergies add further to these precipitating factors.
Sinna combines homeopathic remedies that work synergistically to fight the tumefaction of inflamed and infected mucous membranes. It targets the different aspects of sinusitis as well as its main contributing factors.
