The vestibular system is the sensory system that contributes to the sense of balance and spatial orientation for the purpose of coordinating movement with balance. Thus, we do not feel disorientated or have dizziness.
Together with the cochlea, the vestibular system constitutes the labyrinth of the inner ear and is situated in the vestibulum. Τhe vestibular system comprises of two components: the semicircular canal system, which indicate rotational movements; and the otoliths, which indicate linear accelerations.
Vestibular Rehabilitation and balance
The vestibular system sends signals primarily to the neural structures that control eye movements, and to the muscles that keep us upright. The projections to the former provide the anatomical basis of the vestibulo-ocular reflex, which is required for clear vision; and the projections to the muscles that control posture in order to keep us upright.
Snoring and Sleep Apnea
Snoring is the hoarse or harsh sound that occurs when breathing is obstructed in some way while sleeping. Sometimes snoring may indicate a serious health condition. In addition, snoring can be a nuisance to your partner. Snoring is due to incomplete obstruction of the upper airway.
Many habitual snorers have complete episodes of upper airway obstruction where the airway is completely blocked for a period of time, usually 10 seconds or longer. This silence is usually followed by snorts and gasps as the individual fights to take a breath. When an individual snores so loudly that it disturbs others, obstructive sleep apnea is almost certain to be present.
Unlike simple snoring, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a potentially life-threatening condition that requires medical attention.
The following conditions can affect the airway and cause snoring:
Heart problems due to Sleep apnoea
Anterior nosebleeds make up more than 90% of all nosebleeds. The bleeding usually comes from a blood vessel at the very front part of the nose. Anterior nosebleeds are usually easy to control, either by measures that can be performed at home or by a doctor.
Repeated nosebleeds may be a symptom of another disease such as high blood pressure, allergies, a bleeding disorder, or a tumor of the nose or sinuses
After the bleeding has stopped
Try to prevent any irritation to the nose, such as sneezing or nose blowing, for 24 hours.
Ice packs may help.
Exposure to dry air, such as in a heated home in the winter, can contribute to the problem.
Adding moisture to the air with a humidifier or vaporizer will help keep the nose from drying out and triggering more bleeding. Another option is to place a pan filled with water near a heat source, such as a radiator, which allows the water to evaporate and adds moisture to the air.
If the bleeding does not stop then medical intervention is required by an ENT surgeon, as nasal packing or cauterization may be required in order to stop the
Management of Nose-Bleeds
Tinnitus is the sound that one perceives in the ear or in the head, without any external sound source. The sound that one hears is produced by the ear itself and is perceived only by the patient himself!
What causes Tinnitus?
The majority of patients with tinnitus have hearing loss, although many other factors and clinical conditions may be responsible for this symptom. In one study, 75% of tinnitus patients had an average hearing loss of 30 dB.
The frequency of tinnitus usually corresponds to the frequency of the hearing loss. Noise exposure is a common cause of tinnitus. Other causes are: presbyacusis, Menière’s disease, chronic otitis media, otosclerosis, acoustic neuromas, craniocerebral injuries, and cervical spinal cord injuries. Tinnitus may also be a symptom of temporomandibular joint dysfunction, combined with a feeling of fullness of the ear, pain / intolerance, pressure sensitivity in the affected joint.
You should visit your ENT specialist at EYiasis, when your child suffers the common symptoms of infected or enlarged tonsils or adenoids.
Inflammation or swelling of the tonsils from frequent or ongoing tonsillitis can cause complications such as:
Keep your child at home when he or she is ill and has fever
Teach your child to cough or sneeze into a tissue or, when necessary, into his or her elbow
Teach your child to wash his or her hands after sneezing or coughing

Some of the lung damage can actually be reversed once one quits smoking. Benefits of quitting smoking may include the following:

Gemmotherapy can be used alone or in combination with other therapeutic methods. Gemmotherapy is a branch of phytotherapy that uses the embryological tissues of plants to enhance organ function.
Anti-aging: rejuvenate organs, skin tissue, and cells; stimulate blood and lymph activities; deliver antioxidants in the system.
Benefits of Gemmotherapy
Detoxify: chemically reacts to purify and cleanse cells.
Drain: stimulate the removal from our bodies of toxins through organ fluids like blood and lymph.
Nourish: deliver a full spectrum of antioxidants, hormones, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids etc.
Regenerates Dying Cells: oxygenates cells, balances electrolytes, and improves electrical potential.
Rekindles Worn out Vital Organs and Organ Systems: through organ excitation, gemmotherapy remedies improve overall function.
Repair RNA Repair: stimulates growth with active hormones; stimulates functions of various organs and glands (organs or ducts that remove or carry waste from the body).
Gemmotherapy is the branch of phytotherapy that uses parts of the plant that are in an embryonic state such as germs or young shoots and whose active ingredients are extracted through a particular solvent.
How does Gemmotherapy Work?
We know that no treatment is effective if it takes place in a toxic cellular environment. Gemmotherapy is holistic therapeutic method, affecting the whole body. It helps in detoxifying the cells, regulating the pituitary gland and adrenals, allowing smooth flow of energy into the body, as well as the proper functioning of all hormones.
It also regulates the production of natural cortisone – beneficial to health – and adaptation to the environment inside and outside.
Gemmotherapy extends the drainage of toxins beyond the excretory organs and it ensures the detoxification of the skin, bones, heart, and also nervous system.
Gemmotherapy is a form of herbal medicine that uses remedies made principally from the embryonic tissue of various trees and shrubs. These tissues are rich in growth factors, including vitamins, trace elements, plant hormones, auxins. Some of these active ingredients are found only in buds and not in the whole plant. Thus, the formulations of gemmotherapy are concentrates of all the substances and properties of plants that allow them to flourish.
