EmpowHER Promotes Sinus Health With Online Resource Center

Top Women's Social Health Company Provides Free Online Resource for Sinus Infection Treatment and Prevention

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - Mar 2, 2012) - Unlike a common cold, the symptoms of a sinus infection can last as many as four weeks, possibly longer. It's no wonder this illness, also known as sinusitis, is one of the top ten medical conditions facing American employers for sick leave. The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology claims patients with sinusitis miss approximately four days of work annually.

In an effort to educate women about this malady, EmpowHER, an award-winning social health company for women, is offering a free online Sinus Infection Resource Center. Health Consumers have access to useful knowledge about the latest in sinus infection symptoms, treatment and prevention and can easily connect with other women for support and advice through EmpowHER's social health community.

According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, sinus infections affect more than 31 million people in the U.S. annually -- one out of every seven adults. Though generally not contagious, individuals suffering from a common cold have an 85 percent chance of their sinuses becoming inflamed, resulting with infection. EmpowHER believes providing resources regarding proper care and precaution, the public has better knowledge to reduce chances of contracting a sinus infection.

Through EmpowHER's Sinus Infection Resource Center, health consumers can find the information they need to promote healthy sinuses; along with ways to manage an infection should they get one, including known home remedies.

"Many people don't realize there's a point when their symptoms could be the sign of something more serious. By visiting our Sinus Infection Resource Center, women can learn how to recognize a sinus infection and expert advice in taking action to start feeling better."
