About

Bio

As you can tell from my blog, www.grossaninstitute.com I try to treat without drugs. I treat Scuba Divers. They can't take medications when diving at 100 foot depth, so I had to come up with other therapies. My books on Amazon include, The Sinus Cure Free Yourself From Sinus and Allergy Problems - Permanently Ringing in the Ears - Tinnitus Relief Stressed? Anxiety? Your Cure is in the Mirror. What's best for a common cold? Go to bed with a funny movie and lots of hot green tea with lemon and honey, humor is therapy. What's best for chronic sinusitis? Humming. When you hum you vibrate/shake up the nasal and chest cilia. These cilia are like tiny brooms that sweep bacteria out of your nose/sinuses/chest. When you visit www.grossan.com you can examine my inventions for sinusitis.
