Are you suffering from a Sinus Disorder?
Sinusitis affects 37 million people each year, making it one of the most common health problems in the United States. It is more prevalent than heart disease and asthma and according to researchers; it has a greater impact on one’s quality of life than chronic back pain or congestive heart failure.
