Why Sinus Health Matters
Sinus health is fundamental to both the neuro-respiratory and gut-brain axis. The microbiome of the sinuses is the frontline for respiratory health and is fundamental to the metabolic and immune function of the gut.
A healthy microbiome supports the epithelial barrier in both the sinuses and the gut, functioning as a fundamental element of the innate immune system.
We don’t often consider the fact that normal nasal drainage delivers sinus flora into the stomach and small intestine, so supporting healthy sinus flora is desirable for a variety of reasons. Healthy sinus function is also important for normal sleep patterns and healthy immune system function.
Sinus health can be affected by many different environmental factors, but daily attention to sinus health supports overall health in a variety of ways.
