The Tibb Approach to Sinusitis

Identifying the Root Cause: Tibb focuses on identifying the underlying cause of your sinusitis, whether it's excess moisture and heat or excess moisture and cold.

Restoring Balance: According to Tibb, the qualities of moisture and heat or cold create an environment conducive to inflammation and congestion. Tibb treatments aim to restore balance and promote proper drainage.

Supporting Physis: Tibb treatments work alongside the body's natural healing ability (Physis) to reduce inflammation, improve drainage, and promote overall sinus health.
