What is it?
Nosebleeds can be caused by colds, hypertension, sinus problems, blood disorders, injury or sneezing but sometimes occur without obvious cause. In most cases they stop within an hour. An ice pack applied to the bridge of the nose may help to reduce bleeding.
If a nosebleed does not stop the sufferer should consult his GP. The doctor may numb the nose with local anaesthetic and pack it with gauze or an inflatable balloon. He may then take the patient’s blood pressure for hypertension. He may also cauterize any blood vessels that are prone to bleed.
Naturopathy has concentrated on helping the body to cure itself. It aims to do this by means of various therapies, chiropractic, diets and dieting, exercise, hydrotherapy, massage, osteopathy, relaxation and breathing, and yoga. It also encourages people to think positively in terms of good health. More Info
