Traditional Chinese Medicine Approach
Rhinitis and sinusitis are effectively treated with herbs that drain the sinus cavity, reduce nasal mucous secretions, and desensitize allergenic reactions. These herbs may be given before, during, and after episodes of sinusitis and rhinitis. These herbs are very effective, and do not have the stimulating side effects that drugs have.
In addition to using drugs or herbs to treat rhinitis and sinusitis, it is also important to identify the cause, especially in individuals with allergic rhinitis and sinusitis. Whenever possible, avoid or minimize exposure to these allergens. It is important to remember that drugs and herbs do not cure allergy, they are only effective as preventative and symptomatic treatments.

Researchers found that dietary polyphenols, one of the many nutrients in cacao, have the ability to cross the blood brain barrier, and affect areas of the brain that are responsible for the development of Alzheimer's Disease.
In other studies, cacao has been found to reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.
