Treatable Conditions

Allergic Rhinitis

What causes rhinitis?

Rhinitis has many possible causes. Rhinitis can be either acute or chronic, and is categorized into three areas: allergic rhinitis, non-allergic rhinitis, and mixed rhinitis (a combination of allergic and non-allergic).

Allergic rhinitis is the most common cause of rhinitis. It is caused by environmental allergies and is characterized by an itchy or a runny nose, sneezing, and nasal congestion. Other allergic symptoms include:

  • Itchy ears and throat
  • Red or watery eyes
  • Cough
  • Fatigue/loss of concentration/lack of energy from loss of sleep
  • Headaches or facial tenderness (not typical)

Chronic Rhinitis

Allergic Rhinitis


If you have nonallergic rhinitis, you probably have symptoms that come and go year-round. You may have constant symptoms, or symptoms that last only a short time. Signs and symptoms of nonallergic rhinitis may include:

  • Stuffy nose
  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Mucus (phlegm) in the throat (postnasal drip)
  • Cough

Nonallergic rhinitis doesn't usually cause itchy nose, eyes or throat — symptoms associated with allergies such as hay fever.


Allergic Rhinitis

The exact cause of nonallergic rhinitis is unknown.

But,there are a number of things known to trigger nonallergic rhinitis — some resulting in short-lived symptoms while others cause chronic problems. Nonallergic rhinitis triggers include:

  • Environmental or occupational irritants. Dust, smog, secondhand smoke or strong odors, such as perfumes, can trigger nonallergic rhinitis. Chemical fumes, such as those you might be exposed to in certain occupations, also may be to blame.
  • Weather changes. Temperature or humidity changes can trigger the membranes inside your nose to swell and cause a runny or stuffy nose.
  • Infections. A common cause of nonallergic rhinitis is a viral infection — a cold or the flu, for example.
  • Foods and beverages. Nonallergic rhinitis may occur when you eat, especially when eating hot or spicy foods. Drinking alcoholic beverages also may cause the membranes inside your nose to swell, leading to nasal congestion.
  • Certain medications. Some medications can cause nonallergic rhinitis. These include aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others), and high blood pressure (hypertension) medications, such as beta blockers.
  • Hormone changes. Hormonal changes due to pregnancy, menstruation, oral contraceptive use or other hormonal condition such as hypothyroidism may cause nonallergic rhinitis.

Allergic Rhinitis


Complications from nonallergic rhinitis include:

  • Nasal polyps. These are soft, noncancerous (benign) growths that develop on the lining of your nose or sinuses due to chronic inflammation. Small polyps may not cause problems, but larger ones can block the airflow through your nose, making it difficult to breathe.
  • Sinusitis. Prolonged nasal congestion due to nonallergic rhinitis may increase your chances of developing sinusitis — an infection or inflammation of the membrane that lines the sinuses.
  • Middle ear infections. Increased fluid and nasal congestion may lead to middle ear infections.
  • Interrupted daily activities. Nonallergic rhinitis can be disruptive. You may be less productive at work or school, and you may need to take time off because of symptom flares or doctor visits.
Before After
Chronic Rhinitis Chronic Rhinitis


Chronic sinusitis is a common condition in which the cavities around nasal passages (sinuses) become inflamed and swollen for at least 12 weeks, despite treatment attempts.

Also known as chronic rhinosinusitis, this condition interferes with drainage and causes mucus buildup. Breathing through your nose might be difficult. The area around your eyes and face might feel swollen, and you might have facial pain or tenderness.

Chronic sinusitis can be brought on by an infection, by growths in the sinuses (nasal polyps) or by a deviated nasal septum. The condition most commonly affects young and middle-aged adults, but it also can affect children.

Chronic sinusitis



At least two of the four primary signs and symptoms of chronic sinusitis must be present with confirmation of nasal inflammation for a diagnosis of the condition. They are:

  • Thick, discolored discharge from the nose or drainage down the back of the throat (postnasal drainage)
  • Nasal obstruction or congestion, causing difficulty breathing through your nose
  • Pain, tenderness and swelling around your eyes, cheeks, nose or forehead
  • Reduced sense of smell and taste in adults or cough in children

Other signs and symptoms can include:

  • Ear pain
  • Aching in your upper jaw and teeth
  • Cough that might worsen at night
  • Sore throat
  • Bad breath (halitosis)
  • Fatigue or irritability
  • Nausea


Common causes of chronic sinusitis include:

  • Nasal polyps. These tissue growths can block the nasal passages or sinuses.
  • Deviated nasal septum. A crooked septum — the wall between the nostrils — may restrict or block sinus passages.
  • Other medical conditions. The complications of cystic fibrosis, gastroesophageal reflux, or HIV and other immune system-related diseases can result in nasal blockage.
  • Respiratory tract infections. Infections in your respiratory tract — most commonly colds — can inflame and thicken your sinus membranes and block mucus drainage. These infections can be viral, bacterial or fungal.
  • Allergies such as hay fever. Inflammation that occurs with allergies can block your sinuses.

Risk factors

  • A nasal passage abnormality, such as a deviated nasal septum or nasal polyps
  • Asthma, which is highly connected to chronic sinusitis
  • Aspirin sensitivity that causes respiratory symptoms
  • An immune system disorder, such as HIV/AIDS or cystic fibrosis
  • Hay fever or another allergic condition that affects your sinuses
  • Regular exposure to pollutants such as cigarette smoke


Chronic sinusitis complications include:

  • Meningitis. This infection causes inflammation of the membranes and fluid surrounding your brain and spinal cord.
  • Other infections. Uncommonly, infection can spread to the bones (osteomyelitis) or skin (cellulitis).
  • Partial or complete loss of sense of smell. Nasal obstruction and inflammation of the nerve for smell (olfactory nerve) can cause temporary or permanent loss of smell.
  • Vision problems. If infection spreads to your eye socket, it can cause reduced vision or even blindness that can be permanent.


Take these steps to reduce your risk of getting chronic sinusitis:

  • Avoid upper respiratory infections. Minimize contact with people who have colds. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, especially before meals.
  • Manage your allergies. Work with your doctor to keep symptoms under control.
  • Avoid cigarette smoke and polluted air. Tobacco smoke and air contaminants can irritate and inflame your lungs and nasal passages.
  • Use a humidifier. If the air in your home is dry, such as it is if you have forced hot air heat, adding moisture to the air may help prevent sinusitis. Be sure to keep the humidifier clean and free of mold with regular, thorough cleaning.

Injection Therapy Treatment

Acupuncture Point Injection

Trigger point injectionAcupuncture Point Injection is a therapy whereby specific body locations are injected with biologically active substances which are physiologically regulating. These substances are used to treat pain, swelling, inflammation and toxin accumulation, among other problems. Most injections cause only minor discomfort because they are very shallow, given just under the skin or into the muscle.

Trigger Point Injections

Trigger point injectionTrigger Point Injection deal mainly with muscular, nerve and fascia pain, the type of pain that usually remains after a bad car accident in the neck, TMJ, shoulder region or in chronic low back pain.& The onset of this type of pain is frequently traumatic and then continues to linger for long periods of time often years. Over time muscle/fascia tension and imbalance combined with decreased blood flow to the joint cause arthritic changes. The muscle applies abnormal forces to the joint and wear and tear sets in.

Weight Loss (MIC-Methionine, Inositol, Choline) Injection

Clinical slimming


The three ingredients in MIC injections help your body learn to use fat properly, breakdown fats, and prevent the body from storing extra fat. Combining MIC injections with Vitamin B12 shots can also will get even better results. The Vitamin B12 shot makes a great compliment to the MIC injections for weight loss as it speeds up the metabolism, boosts energy and mood, and reduces stress. MIC injections and the Vitamin B12 shot make a powerful combination of nutrients that conquer not only the causes of excessive weight gain (fat utilization) but also the effects (weight gain, low energy, and depression). Together, the MIC injection and Vitamin B12 shot reteach your body how to lose weight, and keep you motivated in your new diet and exercise lifestyle through increased mood and energy, without giving you the jitters or stress that often come from taking pharmaceutical drugs or caffeine as a metabolism booster. MIC and Vitamin B12 injections help your body naturally learn how to lose the weight and feel great, until it is ready to do it completely on its own through diet and exercise.

  • Methionine:& This is one of the ten essential amino acids. Methionine is considered a lipotropic amino acid, so it is responsible for reducing fat and cholesterol levels. It is the M in MIC injections.
  • Inositol:& This is a co-factor that works with Vitamin E, C, and B vitamins to also metabolize fats and cholesterol, but also does the extra work of transporting and redistributing fat in the body so that it can be used where it is actually needed (not around the belly or in the thighs, for example). It is the I & in& MIC injections.
  • Choline:& This is a co-factor that works beautifully with Methionine because it also is responsible for metabolizing lipids. It is the C in MIC injections.

Lipo Dissolving Injection (PPC-Phosphatidylcholine

Clinical slimming

Lipodissolve or mesotherapy involves a series of injections of medications that are purported to melt away localized fat deposits. The drugs most regularly used in are phosphatidylcholine and deoxycholate (commonly called PC and DC, respectively)

Localized injections of phosphatidylcholine (PC) with deoxycholate (DC) to reduce superficial deposits of fat have gained popularity. Initially, different practitioners added multiple other ingredients, including L-carnitine, aminophylline, collagenase, various vasodilators, and hyaluronidase. A standard formula with PC and DC as essential ingredients.


  • Supports Lipolysis by decreasing the size of fat cells
  • Indirectly increases the local metabolism and blood flow
  • Decrease the appearance of cellulite
  • Enhances the skin elasticity & skin tone
  • Suitable for post liposuction and lymphatic drainage treatments
  • Suitable for post pregnancy care

Skin Whitening Injection (Antioxidant-Glutathione)

Clinical slimming

  • Adding vitamin C and B12 to the blend can boost the immune system and balance nutrient levels in the skin creating a more balanced complexion and a brightening effect.

What is glutathione?

  • Glutathione is an antioxidant. From a nutritional standpoint, antioxidants are typically found in whole foods, particularly fruits and vegetables with very deep colors (pomegranates, broccoli, etc.). Antioxidants are important because they help to fight off free radicals, which are irregular atoms or groups of atoms which can start unhealthy chain reactions in the body.
  • However, there is a world of difference between getting your antioxidants naturally through nutritional intake and receiving an injection of the same substance in your face. Many patients make the mistake of assuming that since glutathione helps the body as an antioxidant, it must be safe. This is not necessarily true.


  • Reduces free radicals and toxins in the blood and liver
  • Reduces the dark color of melasma and hyperpigmentation
  • Safe for all skin types
  • Safer and more gentle than skin bleaching
  • Can also assist with hormone related acne
  • Boosts the immune system
