Podcast Summary

Sinusitis affects 37 million people each year and is one of the most common health concerns. Many people misdiagnose themselves with “allergies” or a “cold” and it actually could be sinusitis. It is an inflammation of the sinus lining that prevents normal drainage through the nose.
