"Nasal irrigation and flush promotes sinus cavity z health, and patients with chronic sinusitis including symptoms of facial pain, headache, halitosis, cough, anterior rhinorrhea (watery discharge) and nasal congestion found nasal irrigation to be "just as effective at treating these symptoms as the drug therapies."
In other studies, "daily hypertonic saline nasal irrigation improves sinus-related quality of life, decreases symptoms, and decreases medication use in patients with frequent sinusitis," and is "recommended as an effective adjunctive treatment of chronic sinonasal symptoms." Pulsating nasal irrigator. Pulsating nasal irrigator.
Some people use bulb syringes, squirt bottles, and neti pots. Others use pulsating irrigation devices that deliver an intermittent pulsing saline rinse to remove bacteria, purulent material, and help restore ciliary function.
Some published medical reports indicate pulsatile lavage is more effective at cleansing and removing bacteria than non-pulsating nasal wash products like bulb syringes, neti pots and squeeze bottles, which rely simply on gravity and conventional flow.
A pulsating nasal irrigation device delivers a controlled flow with pressure control that may be adjusted for individual comfort. Medical reports support that positive pressure irrigation retains a larger volume of solution and irrigates the sinuses more consistently than other methods." (Wikipedia)

Acupressure, Nasal Rinse
[YEA] 03/05/2010: Dianec from Los Angeles, Ca, United States: "Dear Earth Clinic I am excited and would like to share my cure with other sinusitis sufferers!
I have suffered from Sinusitis for close to 10 years. I had never had any allergies to anything except Figs (they cause my throat to itch) so I avoid them. About 9 years ago I began to have extreme post nasal drip and this caused me pain in the throat down to my stomach. This became so bad that I stopped hiking and walking. I gained an awful amount of weight in 9 years. About 30 pounds! Before the problem I used to hike up to 12 miles with a 10 minute break! I was slim and in great shape for a woman of 48. Then came this health problem.
After trying everything over the counter and also prescriptions nothing worked. Medications only gave me some relief. I must have spent hundreds on medications. I was getting worse everyday.
I suddenly remembered that massage therapy works on many medical problems so I begin pressing out my sinus area. I usually lie down and place my thumbs on the area across the eyebrow near the nose and press down hard as I can stand it. (Works better if someone else does this)The area was in so much pain! I also irrigate my nasal passages with a teaspoon of sea salt and a teaspoon of baking soda with hot water as I can stand. When I irrigate I try to suck in the liquid deep in my sinus passages. Both sides. Then I press down not only the eyebrows but the orbits of my eyes and near the nose. (If you have problems with glare this might be the cause of the problem. I believe the computer screen can cause problems with the eyes and sinuses. This problem started 2 years after I bought my first computer. I actually wear sunglasses when using the computer or you can dim the screen. Or buy a screen shade of some type.)
I believe my eyes were the cause of my sinusitis. I believe the nerves of my eyes were inflamed with the light and glare. I use sun glasses at all time out of doors. Since I began pressing my sinus area the painful post nasal drip has stopped! And I am almost back to normal.
I still have a slight problem but I only started this treatment a week ago! I pressed out my sinuses before I went to bed last night and irrigated my sinuses with hot water with sea salt and baking soda and I also took a hot shower and allowed the hot water to hit my sinus area! This morning I woke up with extremely thick Flem from my sinuses that was like chewing gum! It was difficult to take off my hand it was so gooey! That is what was in my sinuses and who knows for how long? Anyway I would like to share this treatment with others. And I pray it helps others!
03/05/2010: Dianec from Los Angeles, Ca. United States: "P.S. Regarding my feedback about Sinusitis: I believe I forgot to add that ICE PACKS on my eyes and eyebrows also helps my sinus problem.
01/31/2011: Dianec from Los Angeles, Ca, United States replies: "What cured my sinusitis was wearing a warm knitted cap on my head day and night. I have not had problems with sinusitis so far for over 2 weeks! I'm not taking any benadryl or anything. Try keeping your head warm like I did.
First time in years that I feel normal again. For some reason cold starts my sinuses running and the horrible post nasal drip? I also am not spitting out mucus! Keep your head warm especially during the night.

[YEA] 03/03/2012: Mayaman72 from Visalia, Ca: "I've struggled with chronic sinusitus due to the very poor air quality of the area I live in which I believe is ranked in the top ten worst in the USA. I've been to this forum and have tried the ACV, tried the Netipot, tried the cayenne, tried diet, and they have all helped to provide some relief this stops it cold. Just put the purifier on your nightstand and keep it on the whole night. Works wonders! I just did it after having to take the week off of work due to a URI. Even after antihistamine, eating healthier, netipots, juicing, it still was throbbing and sapping my energy. My Mom swears by this and recommended it to me. After one night the pressure was gone and I felt much better. My wife tried it last night and felt much better this morning. My wife swears by this now and says she does it just for preventative measures- too much success..."Replies
03/03/2012: Francisca from Zug, Switzerland replies: "Hi Mayaman, I have been struggling with infected sinuses for two weeks now, really miserable but everybody is having the flu in Switzerland and France where we have just been, so it is normal but it is taking to long to cure itself. I don't usually have such problems, actually only once in my life in 2001. My nose seems to be really infected and is now even starting to bleed. I have a humidifier but that doesn't seem to be helping much, never had an air purifier though. I might look for one as you really seem to think that it helps. Someone here suggested sniffing with urine but I don't really know how to do it. I suppose one can put a bit in one hand and sniff it? Worth trying, I suppose...... I am taking all kinds of vitamins, drinking lots of orange, lemon and ACV juice, foot baths with magnesium, salt steam bath, but nothing helps."
03/04/2012: Gerimaya Whyte from Visalia, Ca USA replies: "I can't sing the praises enough for the air purifier method. I've tried all of these methods and they provide relief to a certain degree but don't stop it... My situation might be a little different given the poorness of the air quality in my local. Some people do have pretty good success with Netipots which I have and do use myself. In any regard both methods work on cleaning the nasal tract. I've never heard of bleeding with sinusitus or UTI's so you might want to watch that. Ps you might want to consider eliminating dairy from your diet or at least reducing it considerably as its a major culprit in creating sinus allergies... Good luck and good health!"
10/30/2012: Rose1954 from Ludington, Michigan replies: "I have severe sinistitus and nothing seems to work either. My nose also bleeds, but that is from just blowing my nose. According to my doctor if your nose bleeds it is because you're blowing your nose too hard. I still havent concured the lightly blowing of ones nose, lol.
I also have an air purifier and it seemed to work at the beginning, but now it doesn't seem as noticable as in the beginning. Nasal sprays to me are too floral and I just dont like the effects I get after using them. Seems to upset my stomach after I use them, plus the gagging reflex from the smell which makes you taste it as it runs down your throat.
Am I wrong or are you also suggesting sinistitus is connected to people whom have asthma? Which I just started coming down with within the last 10 years. If so then that is an amazing concept."
Apple Cider Vinegar
[YEA] 05/01/2012: Jay from Norfolk, Virginia: "YEA! I am literally jumping for joy after trying this remedy. I have had serious sinus issues for about the last 6 years. I live in an area that has high levels of allergens and have been suffering with sinus infections that last the better part of 5 months. I have tried everything from antibiotics to hanging upside down for relief, and nothing has worked until today. I mixed 2 table spoons of ACV and 1 TBSP of raw honey (local) into a glass of mineral water and sipped until it was gone.bizarre part is I actually enjoyed the taste... Lol don't judge me. LITERALLY within 5 minutes I started to feel the pressure in my ears subside (the pressure was so bad that my own voice sounded distant), my nose started running, and I began hacking up thick nasty yellowish green balls of mucus from both my lungs and snorting out of my sinuses. I feel like the vice grip has been taken off of my head and I am now a firm believer in this remedy. I wish I would have known about this years ago, I could have saved myself the misery and agony. I am so happy right now! This is an instant cure! "Replies
10/17/2012: Nicole from Sf, Ca replies: "Hi, I wonder the ACV with honey treatment for drinking or for flushing the nostril. Thank you. Nicole"
[NAY] 04/13/2012: Jennifer from Lima, Ohio, Usa: "Didn't help me. Drank it down trying to avoid another sinus infection and relieve the awful pressure in my face. Unfortunately, it upset my stomach so badly that I threw it all up 40 minutes later. Sticking with Mucinex."Replies
09/25/2012: Nita from Granger, In replies: "Jennifer, try again... Use organic ACV with Mother and Raw honey. This is what did it for me. I had used regular before with no change but yesterday I purchased the organic and raw and have already noticed a difference. Hopefully it works for you too."
[YEA] 03/06/2012: Healed from Victoria, Bc, Canada: "So I googled my problem... Sinus congestion and allergies... and happened to come upon this site.
I was amazed that nobody had ever mentioned ACV to me. I went out and bought some Organic ACV and made the recipe someone had posted earlier with ginger, honey and ACV.
My son was blown away as was I that within minutes I was able to breath! I stopped sneezing and sniffling. I took my first and only dose so far at around 10 am this morning. It is now 6:30 pm and I am 99% symptom free! I made a big batch of it and plan on taking it every day!
I have taken the strongest of Antibiotics - did not work!
I have an appointment with an ENT in April, I hope to be canceling the appointment!
I am so thankful I found this site, and for all the reviews people had posted. Had it not been for the reviews from you folks I would have still the hopeless feeling I suffered with for over a year! All I can say is WOW WOW WOW I wish I had known about this stuff a year ago when my problems started!
Thanks again to everyone!"
11/14/2011: Lea from Dijon, France: "I've never liked ACV. I could tolerate it a bit in salads and that was it. I've been struggling with sinus infections ever since I was a kid. I used to have sore throats, nasal drips and nausea as a consequence. On top of that I've been diagnosed with hypothyroid and PCOS. In other words I have problems with insulin and metabolism that have weakened my immune system and make me prone to anything I can get from my pupils and cute as they may be they are generous with all sorts of viruses; I never seem to miss one. These last few months have been bad. I don't take antibiotics, so I usually try natural remedies and quick over the counter drugs that just mask your symptoms and keep you mildly functional. (some of them have for sure antihistamines) As I cannot stay on them forever, the moment I stop the sinusitis comes back with revenge. Like you, I was desperate. I already watch what I eat (vegetarian trying not to eat too much of bad carbohydrates) and try to stay fit.
I bought organic (to be honest the cheapest kind I could find in my local supermarket) ACV and gave it a shot. It's less acidic than the ordinary I used for salads. My nose cleared up immediately, after just one cup of water with two spoons of ACV. I continued taking it every morning and evening before meals. There are other things I noticed. I used to have some vaginal discharge on regular basis. My physician thought it was maybe uncomfortable, but nothing to worry about and my gynecologist agreed after a few tests. Well, it's gone! I've been googling the connection between the two and can't find anything. I'll keep using it and see what's going to happen."Replies
[YEA] 12/29/2012: Tiffany from Newburgh, Indiana replies: "I've just started the ACV method today for my sinusitis and I'm amazed how well it works! I did 2TBSP in 8oz water with some honey and suger. I did want to post something interesting I found online though about the vaginal discharge someone said cleared up when using this method.
According to this article the sinusitis is actually a yeast infection!! So I'm wondering if the ACV 'killed' two birds with one stone :)"
[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS] 11/03/2011: Rvmobile03 from New York, Ny: "So I have sinusitis. This sucks, especially when your wife hates smelling you when you are close to her. I have had it for some years.You know how much I hate this if it keeeps my wife at a distance.
I also had a deviated septum, took antibiotics that last temporarily up to when you stop using it, then the smell returns. I decided to try ACV and combine different usage options along with the vitamin C.
I have been trying the ACV for about 3 days, drinking the water mixture 8oz x 2 tbs of ACV, along with 1tbs of ACV in a neti pot 2 times a day, flushing with warm boiled water, morning and night.
Along with the ACV mixes I have been taking 1000 vitamin C at night. Yes! I have been drinking lots of water, this seems to be really working. Since last night I have not heard a complaint from my wife about any smells.
I am going to continue the mixture for the next 4 days, using the vitamin C for 30 days, let's see what happens. So far so good! I really hate taking prescription drugs, since I have to take one prescription for the rest of my life.
I am really hoping this works! Thanks for the advice on the ACV."Replies
01/31/2012: Aleister from Dallas, Tx replies: "My non-expert advice... First... All of the water you are drinking should be pure.. Distilled water... Now the water companies put out a lot of stuff trying to deter people from discovering that distilled water is perfect... And anyone can make it... They say it leaches minerals... And that is true... Because it is so pure it leaches stuff... But get this... It only leaches the bad stuff the body can't use... Second... You should find a way to eat at least 5 cloves of RAW garlic a day (while infection persists) quit drinking any form of caffeine while infection persists... Your body uses water to flush out unwanted infections.. So you have to drink a glass of pure water every 30 minutes (while infection persists) and caffeine will simply dehydrate you as it is a diuretic... Now... That should begin to take care of this inside...
I also recommend you take 2000 mg's of l-lysine a day... Its an amino acid that boosts the immune system... Now... I've another sure fire way to help... But most people won't do it... And that is cayenne in your saline/baking soda nasal flush... Look it up if you need to... But the deal is... It causes blood flow to increase dramatically which brings in a wall of white blood cells... Also... I had an abcess back when I first got into holisitc healing... And it scared me back to the doctor.. For the last time... They gave me anti biotics and scared me told me if I didn't get the tooth removed I could die (couldn't afford the dentist) scared me and pissed me off at once... The antibiotics didn't help... Came back quickly and stronger... So I went back... Only this time... I didn't take the antibiotic... Instead I packed my mouth with wet gauze loaded with baking soda (draws out infection) and salt (to kill infection after it's out but you might substitute it with peroxide I think) it went away within a couple of days and never came back...
I now brush my teeth with baking soda and salt every day... As fluoride is poison that calcifies the pineal gland which produces melatonin and serotonin (another reason to drink pure water) Next... You should drink ginger(straight from the root not dried) honey tea 3 times a day while infection persists... This should all work for you... If not... You can find me on FB my name is Aleister Gates and we will try to figure it out...
BTW.. Its been 3 yrs now... Still have the tooth... Have never had another problem with it... See... The human body is amazing... If you give it the tools it needs... It can heal just about anything... And once it has... It has its own learned built in defense for it... But ANTIBIOTICS render this process null... They artificially do what the body was designed to do perfectly... I'm not say no one should EVER take them (I myself wouldn't take them) because there are a number of things in your body to get functioning correctly before your immune system is powerful enough to trust this much... Your body has a number of systems it uses to filter out things in our surrounding and infections within.. Etc etc... And all one needs do to be healthy is ensure that each of these systems get plenty of what they need... Plenty of fiber.. Plenty of water... Plenty of oxygen etc etc etc... So.. Like a car needs its oil changes and its radiator flushed etc etc... So to is the human machine... Bot now I'm just rambling... Hope I helped someone... Its all I live to do."
01/31/2012: Susan from Ny, Ny replies: "Can you share how much baking soda and salt in your mixture? 50% each?"
02/01/2012: Linda from New Haven, Connecticut, United States replies: "Susan, although I don't know what amounts Aleister uses, I use 2 parts baking soda to 1 part kosher salt. I've used this for the past year or so to brush my teeth and it works very well. I mix it up ahead and place it in a small container in the bathroom so it's all ready for my toothbrush. The salt can be a bit abrasive so always be careful with it's use. Hope this helps.
07/11/2011: Acid from Dubai, U.a.e: "I've been suffering from sinusitis for like a month now... I went to the doctor but unfortunately all the medicine prescribed wasn't able to help relieve my sinusitis... As I found this site, I immediately ask my helper to buy me ACV, and now I've started using the organic ACV with small amount of honey.. Hoping for the best!!!"
06/27/2011: Sick Of Being Sick With Sinusitis from South Jersey, Nj: "Just drank a cup of ACV 2T, 3T local honey, 8 T hot water. I am desperate for a cure from chronic sinusitis. Currently on 3 antibiotics, decongestant, zyrtec, nasal steroid.... And still I have incredible pain in L sinus/feels like tooth pain.... Exaustion.... Pain in L side of face and head that I awake from sleep. The drink was not too bad... Added extra honey cause it's supossed to be healing too, and it made the drink easier to drink..... I will see how I sleep tonight
Thank you for this site!! I am deseperate to try natural things since medicine has run it's course with me, and no longer works. ACV has antibiotic properties, so I am very hopeful that this will work for me. Thank you all for your comments and input too."Replies
06/28/2011: Nettle from London, Uk replies: "Cayenne worked for me. Cayenne (1tsp) with the Apple Cider Vinegar (1 to 2Tbsp) and manuka honey (1Tbsp), mix with 2Tbsp of hot water. Slightly modified recipe from the original which was from another reader. Sip slowly. It has definately helped me as ear pain stopped in both ears and sore throat gone with in 2 days - be prepared for loose stools!! But I still have muffled hearing as sinuses infection still congested. Also, try the garlic tea."
[YEA] 08/26/2011: Mahesh from Delhi, India replies: "I suffered from acute sinusitis. I am from India and I found a good old book of home remedy. I found one remedy in book and tried. I am cured now. I use to have 3-4 sinusitis attack in a year lasting for 1-2 month. I was usually cured by antibiotics. I use to get attack after usually having cold. If your symptoms of sinusitis are similar then please try this formula:
1. Take 2.5 cup of water (500-600 ml)
2. 7-8 black-pepper (crush them in between two spoon)
3. One piece of ginger (30-50 gm), Crush with some heavy utensil
4. Candy sugar minimum 10-15 pieces
5. 7-12 leaves of Tulsi (Ocimum tenuiflorum)
6. 3-4 clove (I added from my side as found it more effective)
Now boil the content in a pot in low flame/heat for 20-30 mins till it becomes one cup. Low flame is important as high heat may reduce medical effect. Should sipped as tea (i. E. Hot) Now one of the difficult parts is its timing. It should be taken in morning 4:30 AM -5:00 AM empty stomach. As it is bitter and strong, you may feel little vomiting in initially few doses, but soon it will be in your habit. I would advise you to take this for minimum one month. I got permanent relief on 6th day, but I continued for some more time. In book dose was written for 7-10 days as usually you get relief with in this period. Now I get sinusitis once in 2-3 years and I take same medicine. Continuous honey intake is also good. Start this treatment when sinusitis happens to you or about to happen.
I personally feel sorry for not making this effective therapy public as I never knew so many people are suffering from this. I would request some pharma company to make some dry tablet of content which can be boiled and water can be taken as medicine, as Tulsi is not available in every home and in every country. Please email me in mahesh. Chandra2005(at)gmail.com. Also, please consult your doctor if you are not sure to start this medication. But to just assure you, you can observe many of the contents are used as daily food, so must not be harmful to you."

[YEA] 04/15/2010: Arlene from New Brunswick, NJ: "I have treated my post nasal drip for over 30 years by gargling with a solution of apple cider vinegar and water (about 1 tablespoon to 8 or 12 ounces of water). A stronger solution will have a stronger astringent pull from your sinuses. With a sinus infection you may have to gargle a long time until the mucus is thin and clear. Once the mucus is thin, drink a large glass of water. Bee pollen tablets also help with PND. Just ask at the health food store. I just take one and it helps for quite a while. Avoid sugar during bouts of PND - mucus is much worse after sweets and high carbs. Also, depending on the cause of acid reflux or IBS, drinking the same ACV solution helps greatly for stomach distress. Make a mild solution, add ice and it's quite pleasant."
11/02/2009: Sandy from Big Water, Ut: "Sinusitis: I was just reading about Apple Cider Vinegar with water as a daily tonic. I have an infection now and gulped the 2Tbs ACV with 8 oz water and am sipping on a 16 oz withÂ ACV but in your suggestion of using it as a daily tonic you don't give a formula. Can you help?
[YEA] 10/08/2009: Believer from Mason City, Ia: "Unbelievable! I just tried organic (mother) apple cider vinegar (2 Tbsp) and honey (1 Tbsp) in an 8 oz glass of warm water about 30 minutes ago. The honey made it very palatable. After drinking that down and waiting for about 15 minutes I decided to have some lunch. I haven't actually TASTED food like I tasted it today for a LONG time! It was cashew chicken and brown rice, and I tasted every spice and flavoring in it! What a difference! My sinuses started clearing immediately, but the big surprise was how much better my throat felt right away. This may be from the honey coating my throat, but who cares what's doing it when it works this well? This drink will be part of my daily routine from now on. Thank you to Earth Clinic & everyone for all the positive comments!"Replies
[YEA] 07/07/2011: Warlock15 from Perth, Wa Australia replies: "I need to share the miracle of my husband's recovery from years of chronic sinusitis. For years he has been using antibiotics, Nazenex, Beconaze, Vicks Vaporizer and anything else you care to name, all to no avail.
Four days ago I came upon this site in a desperate search for a cure for him. Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV), Cayenne and nasal flushing seemed to be popular so we began a new regime.
We made up a batch of ACV and after drinking it he felt a slight improvement. We then up a saline solution which he used to flush out the nasal cavities. However, since he works on a remote minesite, with only a central kitchen, it was going to nearly impossible for him to mix up batches of the saline solution.
Our next step was down to the local shopping centre where we purchased two bottles of Otrivin Saline Plus. We purchased it from a supermarket not a pharmacist and it only cost AUD$6.95. He didn't use it as directed, instead he gave himself five recommended doses in a twenty minute period, 4 times a day.
He has now used the Otrivin for three days and feels like a new man. He can't remember when he was able to breathe so freely and can never remember when he didn't have sinus pressure. He is still drinking the ACV mixture as well.
He is looking wonderful, his continuous coughing has ceased and he feels great. Good luck to you all you sufferers."

[YEA] 11/10/2011: Lymepatient from Boston, Ma replies: "I just tried mixing ACV, baking soda and salt and then putting it in syringe, leaning forward, tilting my head to one side over the sink while "shooting" the mixture in the nostril on the top. Don't forget to do both sides!! For me one side was much worse than the other. (Test your angles, because sometimes this goes into your throat and the soda burns a bit. ) I saw how one person used a netipot on utube and she did the same thing as what I did (except I used a syringe instead of the pot) and as the water went in one nostril, it instantly came right out the other. For me, nothing came out at first but in about a minute, a ton of clear mucous started coming out and it lasted about 5 minutes. I couldn't believe that all of that was up there! Not to be gross, but I want you to know what to expect if it's working. At first I felt more stuffy, but about a half hour later I kind of started to feel the same as I did before. I am wondering if I have an infection so I will try using Grape Seed Oil, or it may be that this is just a first time and I've got a built up of 40 years and it will take time to loosen everything up. Regardless, I am glad to be rid of all the mucous that did come out and am confident with time, I will breathe like I've never breathed before in my life, and I didn't even know what I was missing. Wow.
The amazing thing is that I never had ANY symptoms, no headaches, no allergies, no breathing problems (that I could tell, )... Nothing. The only thing I had was an aversion to having my nose touched or squeezed together all my life, it felt raw (for 40 years! ) I do have Lyme and yeast on my tongue, so I am looking closely at my body and treating any hints that it gives me. But after doing this I realized that I probably have sinusitis and this needs to be put into a rotation of my protocols such as oil pulling, drinking ACV, Oil of Oregano which I found all on this website! These have been helping me tremendously as well. I am so excited that after 9 years of being incredibly sick with nobody being able to help me, this site is helping me get better piece by piece and all naturally. I've taken care of the mouth and nose so far, my ears are next!"
Apple Cider Vinegar, Himalayan Pink Salt
[YEA] 03/28/2012: Morgan from Alpine, New Jersey: "Hi - I started taking 2 teaspoons ACV in 8 ounces of water 3X a day (I tried taking 2 tablespoons but it was too much for me and dried my mouth out) to irrigate my sinuses, and while it helped, it did not "cure" my problem. I had tried many sinus irrigation remedies in the past, but the sea salt always irritated my nasal passages, so now I am using 1/4 teaspoon of HIMALAYAN PINK SALT in 8 ounces of lukewarm water with just ONE drop of ACV vinegar to irrigate each side of my nostril/sinus. I used a squeeze bottle instead of a Neti pot (much more effective! ) Not only do my sinuses feel immensely better, but the horrible thrush and dry mouth cleared I had cleared up! My tongue is nice and pink now instead of having ugly whit spots and hurting when I swallowed or ate certain foods. I suspect that my sinus infection had been drainng into my mouth, and that is why this rinse worked so well. Good luck to everyone here who is suffering!"Replies
