BACKGROUND Allergic rhinitis is a chronic respiratory disease. Sympathetic hypofunction has been identified in allergic rhinitis patients. OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of six weeks of repeated sauna treatment on the autonomic nervous system, peak nasal inspiratory flow (PNIF) and lung functions in Thai patients with allergic rhinitis. METHODS Subjects were diagnosed with allergic rhinitis clinically by an attending physician based on history, physical examination and positive…

The determining factors of peak nasal inspiratory flow and perception of nasal airflow in asthmatics.

Special care has to be taken when interpreting PNif values in patients with asthma or reduced FEV1, as the sensation of nasal obstruction in asthmatics is different from controls despite being in the same PNIF group.

Recovery from sauna bathing favorably modulates cardiac autonomic nervous system.

Autonomic nervous system dysfunction and sinonasal symptoms

The role of ANS dysfunction in sinonasal disease is highly complex, and sits within a web of multiple factors, including personality and psychological distress, that contribute to sin onasal symptoms.

Clinical Effects of Regular Dry Sauna Bathing: A Systematic Review

Regular dry sauna bathing has potential health benefits but more data of higher quality is needed on the frequency and extent of adverse side effects and the specific clinical populations who are most likely to benefit.

Sweating as a Preventive Care and Treatment Strategy in Traditional Persian Medicine

The results of this study revealed that PM scientists believed proper sweating removes waste products and maintains the body’s health, thus, any disturbances in the excretion of these waste products can cause diseases.

Since allergy management goes beyond drug prescription and requires a multidisciplinary approach, the emergence of integrative medicine, a combination of modern medicine and alternative therapy, is of particular interest in the treatment of allergic disorders.

Proteomics Analysis of Urine to Examine Physical Effects of Warm Nano Mist Sauna Bathing

Proteomics analysis of urine samples obtained from healthy volunteers before and after they had taken a sauna bath with nano-mist or with conventional mist daily for two weeks indicated that considerable numbers of proteins were obviously up-regulated, with more than two-folds in urine samples after the nano-Mist sauna bathing.



Cardiac autonomic imbalance in children with allergic rhinitis.

It is proposed that autonomic imbalance may be involved in the pathophysiology of allergic rhinitis in pediatric patients, and results indicate that HRV is increased, which implies sympathetic withdrawal and parasympathetic predominance.

Effects of inhaled humidified warm air on nasal patency and nasal symptoms in allergic rhinitis.

Inhalation of humidified warm air resulted in amelioration of allergic rhinitis symptoms and in increased nasal patency in a high proportion of patients, and this form of therapy seemed effective in the 2-week period in which it was used.

Allergic rhinitis and sinusitis in asthma: differential effects on symptoms and pulmonary function.

Allergic rhinitis and sinusitis are associated with more severe asthmatic symptoms and, in patients with poorly controlled asthma, more exacerbations but are not associated with low lung function.

The nasal response to isometric exercise in non-eosinophilic intrinsic rhinitis.

The study shows that there is an abnormal response to isometric exercise in intrinsic rhinitis, perhaps due to relative nasal sympathetic hyposensitivity.

[Airway hyperreactivity in patients with allergic and non-allergic rhinitis].

Nonspecific bronchial hyper-responsiveness is present in patients with allergic rhinitis and the presence of nasal eosinophils is a persistent inflammation parameter suggesting the allergic origin in these patients.

Normal peak nasal inspiratory flow rate values in Greek children and adolescents.

Normal ranges for PNIFR standards are of great importance for the study of nasal patency, evaluation of the degree of nasal obstruction and application of treatment.

Peak nasal inspiratory flow evaluation as an objective method of measuring nasal airflow.

IPNF proved to be a reliable method to detect changes in nasal patency, by obstructive causes as well as inflammatory causes, with an acceptable level of statistical significance, simple, easy to handle, inexpensive and reproducible.

Relation of nasal air flow to nasal cavity dimensions.

This study indicates statistically significant associations between nasal cavity dimensions and PNIF and the most important structural determinant for PNif is the minimal cross-sections of the nasal cavity.

Bronchial hyperreactivity and spirometric impairment in patients with allergic rhinitis.

This study evidences that an impairment of spirometric parameters and BHR may be observed in patients with allergic rhinitis alone, and thus, careful evaluation of lower airways should be performed in patientsWith allergic rhineitis alone.
