[YEA]  Jim from Klamath Falls: "I have long used ACV for various cures. However, I have also used colloidal silver [which I make myself] or some may call it "ionic silver" in a nasal spay. Several applications of this remedy has always been effective for me in quelling sinus infection."

[YEA]  12/08/2012: Linda from Blue River, Wi: "i had sinus infections that would last months & went thru month long treatments from the doctors with antibiotics, to no avail. I thought I was resigned to live with it the rest of my life.... My brother in law gave me a bottle of angstrom silver 600ppm (angstrom is like collidal, but smaller particles, with no fillers, etc. ), and a bottle of ascorbic acid & a bottle of black elderberry syrup. I treated myself with a spoonful of each, several times a day, for 2 days & by the 3rd day, I could breathe & quit coughing. Have been sinusitus free since. Now I just take a shot or two a day of the silver & feeling fine. Thanks brett!!"

[YEA]  11/28/2008: Ricardo from Danbury, CT: "Candida Cleanse, Cream of Tartar Pro-biotic and organic sea salt.

Hi, I've been suffering with chronic sinus infections for about 4 years. Went to doctors several times, had an operation inside my nose and nothing worked. I am extremely mad a conventional medicine that uses drugs and surgery as treatment. Conventional medicine and drug companies should go down as they do more damage to the population than the diseases itself. After I got the operation, my life became a living hell. I lived my life around the sinus problems I had. I lost so many good things in live that I can't even count. I finally decided to take my health in my own hands and I will never go to a conventional doctor anymore, unless it if is a real emergency, in an ER of a hospital because one can't never say never, now I am my own doctor and I don't take drugs anymore. Why take drugs if they only purpose is to make money, IT IS ALWAYS ABOUT THE MONEY. The antibiotics destroyed my life completely. I gave tons of money to the drug companies on the course of this problem, I bought so many nasal decongestant and over the counter decongestants that if I have my money back I would probably be rich by now.

I had relieved that came when I understood that most chronic sinus infections are fungal and not bacterial or viral. I started with the Threelac therapy, helped but, they don't tell you on the websites that you need to do a Candida diet for at list one month (very hard to do), then they send you a paper inside that tells you that you must do the diet, but I tried anyway, without the diet, it did not help. Then I did the Candida diet for 45 days, I felt fantastic, but all ended few weeks later, then I did colloidal silver maximum strength 10,000 PPM (parts per million) for 45 days, I felt fantastic again, but few weeks later the problem started again; this time I added Pro-biotic, PB8 14 million and used a water pump (the ones used for cleaning teeth) device with an end of rubber for nose use. I bought Organic sea salt and put two table spoons in 30 oz of distilled water, tilt my head about 45 degrees on top the sink and started the machine, all of the sudden there was a strong burning sensation,in my nose started some really loud noises inside and the discharge went on for about three days, I had to breed thorough the mouth for hours and when I got tired I used the decongestant to catch my breath a little, about few hours. My eyes burned too, to control this problem I used lots of cold water on my eyes and blinked. I did the same for several days and now I am nasal decongestant independent for about a week, and that is the first time in about 4 years. The real action was actually happened when I found the testimony of a lady on EARTH CLINIC ABOUT CREAM OF TARTAR. I went to the health store here in town and bought 10 spoons of the product for 9 bucks; the first time I drank one tea spoon of the product in a 4oz glass of water, I felt really strong reactions in my body. I was in and out the bathroom for two days, and was eliminating Candida like crazy. I check my ph the next morning, just before breakfast or brush my teeth, and it was a fantastic 7.5 ph, I am usually 6.0 ph, which is acid.

I credit my cure to these five things together, 1) cream of tartar, 2) nasal pump 3) organic sea salt 4) pro-biotic and 5) Earth clinic, thank you.
Ricardo Aguiar."

[YEA]  10/05/2007: Michelle from Roseville, CA: "I had a raging infection in one of my top molar teeth. Around the same time I got the worst sinus infection I have EVER had. The pain in my tooth went away, so I didn't get it checked out. For the next year, every time I got sick, even a minor cold, I got this same major sinus infection. Finally after the year was up, I consulted a nutrionist about the causes of sinus infections. The first thing she mensioned was a bad tooth. I had forgotten about the tooth infection I had. Thank God, that same week, the tooth pain returned. I was determined to rid myself of thesr horrible sinus infections, so I went to the dentist and got my tooth pulled. That sinus infection lingered and lingered even after I got the tooth pulled, but that was the last one I ever had, and it has been almost a year now! I am so grateful something FINALLY worked for GOOD!!!"

01/21/2012: Bill from Winston Salem, Nc replies: "I remember having a sinis infection and toothache at the same time. My tooth was killing me I told the denist to pull that sucker. He said wait let's do an x ray. What happened was my tooth's root went through my sinus canal and with a sinus infection that's the reason my tooth was killing me. Thank God I had a good dentist because it was one of my lower jaw teeth which I used a lot chewing my food. I got rid of my sinus infection and bam no toothache.

The best thing I ever did to stop my sinus infections and a lot of other problems was when I bought a machine called IONCLEANSE. Living on a horse farm for over 50 years my body was full of toxins. That machine is a God send. It detoxed my body and along with it all my health and pain problems. I even had asthma and after about 10 treatments I have never had asthma agian and no more sinus problems either. It's been over 4 years problem free."

11/07/2012: Brooke from Farmington, Ct replies: "Hi, Was it the ION CLEANSE foot detox? I have TMJ and my left side got stuck and now my left nostril wont stop dripping a pale to bright yellow. HELP!"


[YEA]  08/08/2007: Jeff from Boca Raton, FL: "Five years ago my right cheek puffed out and it was diagnosed as a salivary gland infection. That cleared up but then I had jaw pain which I thought was from tooth decay under a loose crown. Fixing that didn't help and I saw several dentists and doctors trying to find out the problem. Eventually I gave up and lived with the pain.

Two weeks ago my cheek blew up badly and eventually a salivary stone 1/8" by 5/16" came out of the duct. I thought the problem was solved but the swelling persisted. It got so bad that the pain eventually drove me to a doctor. He found another stone was in the duct, about 1/8" by 1/8". The larger stone had a point on it which I was able to grab with tweezers and pull out but this one doesn't and I'm still working on it. But I'm able to push it aside and let the gland drain. Although it fills back up, when drained I was amazed to find my hearing improved and my sinus on that side drained and I could breathe freely.

I had always thought there was a reason for the initial swelling but when I mentioned that I read about salivary stones on the internet and asked an oral surgeon if that could be the problem, he actually got mad and said things like "everyone thinks they're an expert because they read it on the internet". I had asked nicely and couldn't believe his response. I had been miserable for weeks and felt like throwing a punch in his direction but I just left the office. My guess is that he lost a bundle when net stocks crashed.

I wanted to leave this message to show how a seemingly unrelated problem can cause sinus and hearing symptoms... I think an infection has been dragging me down for years and although it's not over yet I feel better than I have for a long time since I've gotten most of the infection out. So check for hard lumps in the gland, from what I've read these stones are more common than most believe."

I have allergies and asthma and can't see to get rid of this ailment. I figured out it was sinus related and it I have had antibiotics and all types of sinus treatments. These have not worked. The swelling changes my whole face and I don't even look normal. Does someone have an idea what I can do? Is this the problem you had?"


[YEA]  04/08/2007: Lill from Portland, Maine: "My son suffered from one sinus infection after another, which set off his asthma. Winters were horrible until last winter when he had his wisdom teeth removed. He hasn't had a sinus infection since. We believe that the impacted teeth were putting pressure on his sinuses. Might be worth checking if nothing else works. Lill"

[YEA]  02/01/2013: Diane from Los Angeles, Cal.: "I suffered from sinusitius for about 10 years and in my case I discovered that I didn't have a sinus problem but some sort of infection at the back of my head just below the crown. When I got a sinus attack I could feel that the back of my head was ice cold! I found that if I kept this part of the head warm (wearing one and sometimes two caps on my head) the sinus problem would cease! You can also use a blow dryer to warm the head. I never had an actual sinus problem! My head infection was causing mucus to run down my sinus area.

Now that I have gone on a healthy diet including eating fruits and vegetables, salads, pinto beans, black rice, juicing of fruits and vegetables, eating sardines, mackerel, salmon and cutting down on coffee and sugar. No meat. And plenty of water plus a glass of water with a lemon squeezed into the glass morning and night I now hardly ever need to wear a cap. My sinus nightmare is over!"


[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  09/04/2009: Jaenfjfi from Omaha, Nebraska: "I have been using 1/2 tsp. of ACV with 1/2 cup of apple juice twice a day for my 5 year old son (he weighs 44 lbs)and it has helped after about a week (although he did have loose stools because he doesn't usually drink juice) He has struggled with sinus infections for the past two years. Had his adenoids removed and was still on antibiotics, antihistamines, and a nasal steroid spray (all at the advice of his ENT) for the past year. I just decided to stop medicating my young son.....it was going on for WAY too long with no positive results. I'm wondering what dietary changes you have made that help with sinus problems. Maybe by looking at dietary changes, we can avoid the congestion in the first place."

Replies
09/06/2009: Joyce from Joelton, Tn replies: "Hello Jaenfifi, The loose stools are probably from the apple juice itself. So just put his ACV in whatever juice he likes (please not prune juice though because it is also a good laxative) and see if it solves the problem."
09/10/2009: Andrea from Parkwood, Qld Australia replies: "Hi Jaenfifi, sinus issues can be very debilitating when they continue over a long period of time, I should know I suffered for years on and off and nothing seemed to help. I find that cutting out wheat products and washing fruits and vegetables that are susceptible to mould in a solution of water and lugols iodine can eliminate some triggers. However, the best relief I have had and seems to be permanent, is using Wild oil of oregano. Due to the hot nature of oregano oil it may not be especially palatable to a 5 year old, but I just place 2-3 drops of oil into a glass of warm to hot water ( this helps with the dispersion of the oil) and stir it in using a non metal spoon/stirrer. I then drink most of it and stir again, this helps incorporate the remaining oil as the last bit seems to be the hottest and then drink it down. This clears my head within minutes and any full feeling or mucus build up dissipates and generally clears within the day. Hope this helps. I also have a nasal irrigator that I use periodically to clean out the nasal passages which doesn't allow bacteria to get a foothold. Good luck.Andrea."

11/05/2009: Pryor4 from Anderson, South Carolina replies: "My son (age 4) was sick for most of his first two years. We were told he was allergic to milk. However, I did not feel this was so. He had runny nose and sinus problems often, and also had skin problems. We started using raw milk and taking supplements (Shaklee) and he has not been sick in two years! I am struggling with sinus' this week and plan on using the ACV. My husband has used this before and it worked well."
11/12/2013: Sunny from Ca replies: "Awsome mom, nice to see that you don't want to give drugs to such a young child. Yes diet always helps. They way I see it its either an infection or allegies ( to food ex). There are netipots designed for little kids. If its an ifection then it need a killer of infection( garlic, oregano, etc) , read here that may are trying boiled garlic juice added to the sea salt solution for the netipot rinsing. ( might want to do it very light/ diluted as he is a young boy) Quadrupel efforts! Diet and neti pot, and supplementation. and eliminantion diet. For sinus problems no: sugar stuff, no milk, no cold stuff( feeds infection). Yes: hot/ warm drinks, lost of water, lots of lemon (

Pass the love forward- Sunny"


[YEA]  12/13/2007: Anonymous : "Dietary change can be a very good way to remedy sinus infections -- but make sure your readers know that what they might have cured with the diet change was more than the sinusitis itself. I had sinus infections without stop for several years and we tried just about everything. Turns out that the sinusitis was being caused by GERD and a change in diet was called for. You can sure tell when I'm behaving myself and following a low-acid, low-fat, no-caffeine diet -- no sniffles. Let your readers know that they'd best be careful with some of the cures on this pages for just that reason. A number of the acids here could very well make a GERD patient worse (though I don't doubt that they work for folks with normal stomachs)."


[YEA]  09/27/2007: Diana from San Diego, CA: "I have found that if I eat anything with corn in it I will get a sinus infection I have alway thought it was the high frutose corn syrup because if I eat or drink anything with the corn syrup in it I get sinus infections. Also just corn tortillas will do it. I don't know if it is just all the altering of the corn to to enhance the growing process but something is wrong with corn now. Also, when something tends to be in everything...just the amounts that are consumed can create allergies to it. All I know is that Corn is one of my biggest factors in getting sinus infections and bronchitis. If it does go into my chest... Lymphomyosot by Heel is a good homeopatic remedy for it. I can alway clear up the bronchitis within 24 hours with it. Just take it every 20 minutes until you feel it getting better then do it 2 to 3 time day until well. I don't get bronchitis anymore since using it. I use to get bronchitis 2 to 3 times a year before."


[YEA]  02/12/2007: Jerry from Clay Springs, AZ: "I've had chronic sinus infections all my life. I decided to follow Doug Kaufman's Phase 1 diet for a few months to see if that might make a difference. I have now been on this diet for a year this month. This has been the best winter for me ever, I'm 52 yrs old. I haven't had all the respiratory ailments that I normally experience every year. Just to test if the foods to avoid might be the culprit, I ate some off the diet at Christmas and the sinus came back. I took the herbs and supplements he suggests and it is all cleared up. I know now that my problem was fungus and all the antibiotics I've taken in the past, also sugar and corn was killing me."

[YEA]  02/12/2007: Wendy from Brooklyn, NY: "Years of constant sinus infections led me to many doctors and I was told to get surgery, which didn't help a lot. Finally an allergist suggested I cut out wheat; and it has been amazing! Though I still occasionally have a sinus flare-up it's been a HUGE difference and I now think that I didn't have as many infections as I thought, that I was having allergic reactions to wheat! I would advise anyone considering sinus surgery to try this first. I would not have gotten the surgery had I known."

[YEA]  06/04/2008: Teresa from Waiuku, New Zealand: "For painful sinuses and the accompanying headache - beat 2 egg whites (stops them being slimy and difficult to handle). Spread out on a gauze (or cloth) and put over your face (avoiding eyes). Put another cloth over (optional). Lay down on your back and go to sleep. The heat/temperature will harden the gauze. Suggest you leave it on as long as you can. You will be pain free and as a bonus will get a facelift. I have used this remedy for migraines and hard to shift headaches and have always gained relief."

So I brewed a .50 oz of eucalyptus ( like you do coffee or tea in a coffee pot (12 cup) and then I put some sugar in, (optional) and drank that one time, and i felt the difference overnight, I then continued to drink a cup for the next couple of days to make sure that everything was cleared up.. I still make a pot of Eucalyptus tea. its great for cool nights and days, or refreshing on hot days."

Replies
11/11/2008: DG from Baltimore, MD replies: "I have had some luck clearing my sinuses using Vick Vaporub as follows as described below (note it has some EUCALYPTUS OIL in it)

Caution: this mixture WILL bubble and splatter unless the Vicks is mixed in SLOWLY.

I heat a coffee cup of water to near boiling. Then slowly and carefully I dip a half teaspoon of Vicks into the cup just a little at a time while breathing the vapors into my nose. At first you have to go VERY SLOW or the mixing with bubble over and make a big mess. When I first did this there was some burning sensation, but it causes a lot of mucus to run and seems to open things up.

It has NOT been a cure all, but it is one thing I do and it might be a ready source of EUCALYPTUS OIL (at a low concentration) for those who want to try it without hunting around."
