[YEA]  Great info. So after an awful infection for 4 days I woke up with the worst pain and was about to go to Dr. to get antibiotics. Didn't want to take them so I decided to goggle home remedies and I had everything already (candida) so I drank some homemade water kefir, took a dose of OOO (Olive leaf oil/ oregano oil) straight with kefir to wash it down. And made a homemade salad dressing for my salad. I used virgin olive oil, _____ liquid amino, a lot of _____ ACV, one pack of stevia, cayenne pepper, salt, garlic powder, a garlic clove diced up and some dried oregano. I ate my salad with my homemade dressing and drank my kefir and within one hour I felt great. Headache gone, balance back, swollen sinus pressure gone, and it doesn't hurt to breathe. I didn't want to believe it would work so quickly but it did. So ACV, water Kefir, and OOO (Olive of oregano/olive leaf oil) gets three thumbs up. I will continue treatment for several days.

[YEA]  I want to say thank you to Earth Clinic for supplying with the rememdies to cure my sinus infection. My sinus infection was providing me with one of the worst headaches I have ever experienced and I had an extreme amount of throbbing, sharp pain in my left cheak. I didnt want to go get antibiotics so I turned to google for questions which led me to Earth Clinic.

I used a bombardment of remedies and totally cured my sinus infection in about 5 days. I ate only fruit and vegetables for 3 days, dranks 2tbs of apple cider vinegar dilluted in juice or water 3 times a day, took oregano oil twice a day, took grapefruit seed extract pills, did oil pulling with organic unrefined sesame oil (which I think was one of the most effective of the remedies), ate a lot of lemon, put cayenne pepper on my vegetables, and drank hot lemon and cayenne pepper tea(a half to a whole lemon sqeezed into hot water with a little cayenne pepper sprinkled in). It's a lot but I had an extreme case. If you don't want to go to the doctor these remedies do work and in a less extreme case you could probably take care of your infection with one or two of the remedies.

[YEA]   5 days ago I woke up with a sinus infection. No warning. Possible root causes: heating in house being turned on after many months off (build-up of dust/mold/etc), helping boyfriend move (lots of dust/dust-mites stirred up), the dryness of the heating in the house (I now close the vent of the heater before I go to sleep at night.)

ACV has helped me through my current sinus infection. My first few days of being sick I drank 2 T ACV, 1-2 T local honey, sometimes a pinch of cayenne, and hot water. I drank this 3 times a day. 5 days in I'm drinking it once a day. It helps in the moment- clears up my nasal passages, helps me breathe. I don't think it's helped me heal faster- but it makes me feel better when I'm drinking it.

The highly unexpected benefit is that I've lost a couple pounds since drinking it daily! The scale shows a 2 lb drop- which is significant at 5'1, in 5 days, without changing any eating or exercise habits. I have also been starting to use it as a toner on my face- I have bags under my eyes, and I am hoping a routine of ACV followed by VCO will help. My skin is looking pretty good AND the VCO has helped keep my nose from chapping, even with my constant nose blowing. Usually when I get sick, my nose and upper lip area peels from the tissue abuse. Not this time!

Meanwhile for my sinus infection, I've also been taking collodial silver( 1 t 3x daily), vitamin-c (1000mg daily), fresh fruit and veggie juices (8oz 2x daily), stopped eating dairy, lots of herbal teas, green tea, bathing in extra hot water with salt/baking soda daily, taking hot/cold alternating showers (I feel great when doing them, my sinuses clear, and stay clear for a little while), getting extra sleep each night, sunshine therapy (closing my eyes and looking at the sun, soaking it in for 2 min daily), meditation, kundalini yoga, cayenne pepper on my food at meals, gently massaging my lymph nodes while bathing, garlic, soup, and prayer. I also went out and bought a warm moisture humidifier, which has been great! I add a drop of Eucalyptus essential oil and am breathing easy (and blowing the nose easy) in no time.

My family wonders why I don't take Western meds for it- but why would I do that? I know that my body is clearing out toxins it doesn't need- old things and things that aren't mine- taking meds to mask the symptoms would only prolong this clearing process. I would like to be healed by now - but I also respect that my body is doing its thing in its own time. I'll keep supporting myself through hopefully the only illness I'll have this season.

I used spring water, added eucalyptus essential oil & tea tree oil and breathed in the vapors, so far so good. For the Tomato tea recipe, I would also add some horseradish to the recipe, as I tend to drink this cold from time to time, but I will be trying it hot. I also get adjusted by my chiropractor and yes, they adjust the sinus areas and yes it works! %u263A%u2665

Hi all! So, I have had sinus issues for 10 years or so, and have been dizzy (not vertigo, already went to an ear doctor for a test, my inner ear is fine) for an entire year. The doc did a CT scan and said I have significant sinusitis (also I have acid reflux). I do NOT want to do antibiotics, so I tried all the remedies here: oil pulling (sesame) 2x/day, hydrogen peroxide/sea salt/baking soda rinse in my SinuRinse nedi med bottle 2 or 3x/day (8oz filtered water, 1/2 teaspoon b. S. , 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 1/2 TB h. P. ), ACV/water mix 2x/day (2-3 TB), steam inhalations w/ eucalyptus 1-2x/day, humidifier at night, and taking all the herbs recommended for sinus echinacea 3x/day, diet of no dairy no wheat no refined sugar no meat only veggies (lots of onion and garlic) fruit nuts and beans, hot tea, no caffeine or alcohol... I mean I'm doin it all here. The weird part is I havent had any pain (knock on wood) just stuffiness and dizziness all the time and I saw the ct scan pics and how much mucous there is in my maxillary sinus cavity. I have been doing all this for 5 days. My stuffiness is kind of subsiding, but comes and goes and the sinus rinse seems to make me more stuffier later. Still dizzy. Don't get a ton of mucous coming out of me when I do all this, maybe just a little, so my sinus cavity doesnt seem to be draining... And I'm not experiencing any detox effects. My questions are has anyone heard of dizziness being a symptom of sinusitis? and why isn't any of this working? PLUS when I oil pull, after 20 minutes the oil is still yellow while of course also being thicker and stuff, but isn't it supposed to be white? I also have a hard time not swallowing a bit of it while its in my mouth, does that happen to any of you? please help

[NAY]  I have been suffering from a cold/sinus infection for about a week now. Tried the ACV in a drink with raw honey, and mixed with my salt water for the neti pot for several days now. Doesn't seem to help much. Also tried H2O2 in my neti pot last night and today - that burned like crazy, and I got LOTS of stuff out. However, it seems to cause a huge rebound effect in my infection. Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance.

If it is viral, I would suggest you to take Oil of Oregano capsules. 3 capsules three times a day. Each capsule contains 640mg Oil of Oregano extract. It took only three days to cure my problem. But I felt much better just after one day. I first tried two capsules as suggested on the bottle but didn't see any noticeable results. The antibiotics from my doctor didn't work, even after I told him it was viral.

[NAY]  Nasal Fungal Infection? I have had nasal issues for the past couple of years since I have had septoplasty done. Since the surgery, I have had alot of post nasal drippage and a "smell" coming from my right nostril. Now, I am self treating for systemic candida so I am almost certain this is stemming from that. I have tried using 50/50 peroxide spray, tea tree oil spray, 50/50 ACV spray etc.. and have not had luck. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to get rid of this? My main complaints are stuffiness (like my nasal cavity is swollen and itchy) and nasal drip (which is stinky!!) and constantly blowing nose. Sorry, don't want to gross anyone out. I'm going crazy here!!!!

This is going to sound very off-the-wall, but are you sure the doctor didn't miss a piece of gauze or wadding or something up there during or after the surgery?

I have thought about that and have gone back to the Dr. multiple times. He has not mentioned anything being stuck up there. I notice I have a pocket along the septum which traps the mucus. Ugghhh..what a gross condition. My thoughts are, if I get rid of the source of the mucus ( bacterial, fungal, etc) than maybe I can get rid of these symptoms.

Have you been to see a different doctor? If I was in your situation, I would go to a different doctor, but I wouldn't ask for a referal from my current one, because they talk to each other and often cover each other's butts if they think malpractice might be involved. I would make like my old doctor retired or died or was in another state or something like that. If the problem is as troublesome as you say...something that I do not doubt...and your doctor is not taking you seriously, I would say it is time to find another doctor. What kind of doctor allows his patient to suffer as you are suffering without refering them to someone else who might be able to help? Something is clearly wrong up there. It cannot be good for your general health to have a sinus situation like you have. There must be something that someone can do, even if that someone is not your current doctor.

You also say that you have a pocket from the surgery? That doesn't sound right...why should there be a pocket there, and why should it be acting as a well of infection, whether it is yeast or bacteria (or maybe both)? Has the doctor tried cleaning the pocket out to see if anything is in there, or has he just ASSURED you that there is nothing in there? Assurances are not the same thing as investigating, that's for sure. Have you seen the x-rays, or cat-scans for yourself? I once went to a dentist that wanted to pull all my teeth, but she wouldn't show me the x-rays. You can bet I beat cheeks out of there fast. You also say that the Dr HAS NOT MENTIONED anything being stuck up there? Well, if there IS something up there, it is in his interest NOT TO MENTION IT, isn't it? You keep coming back with the same problem, which means that you are a steady source of income for him, not to mention a possible lawsuit if THERE IS something there! If it were me, I'd stop letting him fob me off and make him PROVE there is nothing stuck up there, or I'd get a different doctor.

Mom-in-law had nose-sinus fix-alteration as young woman early-1960's. Ever since, she suffered migraines, spent most her children's formative yrs on the sofa in excruciating pain. No dr could 'find a fix'. Now nearly 50 yrs later, retired out-of-state (still suffering), went for routine ear exam, dr took a fast ear exam, said something's in there. He did an in-office extraction of a bone chip the first dr left in. She is totally different. No one can believe the change in her. Just a regular ear-light/magnifier exam. Dr said he saw it easy, just pulled it right out with a tweeze.

What a story! 50 years of suffering from something that can be fixed in a few minutes! I think it is best to get 3 to 4 opinions since one doctor does not know everything. I had rhinoplasty, no pain or problems except a smell of sort of medicine. Two years later a string was hanging out of my nose... I pulled it and kept pulling a this big sterile bandage out of my nose! The ND did two things for my serious sinus infection is ozone sinus injections, along with essential oil nasal sympatico treatments ( painless just a little pressure in sinuses) where they carefully access the maxillary sinus cavity and have you inhale the oil and let it sit in the sinus cavity have this it done weekly for about a month to kill sinus infection I also took NAC four times a day to thin the mucous and did steams.

[NAY]  I have chronic sinus infection, I have it now and have had it for about 30 days. Just can't shake it. I am on ACV, GSE, Nasal pot, vit c 2000mg/day,garlic pills, trying to drink plenty of water each day, inhaling ACV as well. I have some relief but the pain the head is there, comes and goes, worse at night. I am leaving for India in 3 day and am desperate to find a cure. The cure may come but I need to see more improvement.

I have read so many posts by so many good people giving there solutions and their experiences. I guess I will just continue what I am doing. I will not go to a doctor to take antibiotics they don't work for me.

Well, thanks for allowing me to vent and when I find a cure or something that has really made the difference with these chronic horrible sinuse problems I will post it.

Take two washcloths and fill the sink with hot water, as hot as you can stand on your face. Fold the washcloths a couple of times to a rectangle shape to cover your sinuses. Put washcloths in the water. Wring out the first one and quickly apply to the sinus area. When it starts to cool, wring out the other one and apply. Keep alternating the moist heat compresses for 10 min. Keep it as hot as you can stand it without burning yourself. When you're done, lie down for 20 min. Do this several times (4-5 times) a day. It should feel better after the first day.

A friend told me to do this a few years ago when the sinus pain was so bad I thought I had an abscessed tooth, my gums were aching. It worked the first day. Hope this works for you.

Bill, I have sinus problems like what you are describing, especially in dry, cold weather. The best thing for me was getting as much humidity into the room as possible (or vacationing in a humid climate, which has literally healed a chronic sinus infection overnight). Winter time is especially brutal because the blast from the furnace throughout the house removes humidity from rooms. Try a humidifier as soon as possible (just make sure to disinfect it every few uses). The climate in India might heal your sinus infection, I wouldn't be surprised!

Hi Bill, what works for me is raw rhubarb juice to unblock sinuses and colloidal silver to protect against re-infection. The RAW rhubarb juice stings [but only a little] and starts clearing out within minutes, and keeps working all day. If you mix the two 50-50, there's no sting at all, but the unblocking is not quite so good, so if I've forgotten to do it for about 3 days, I just use pure rhubarb juice to get rid of the congestion and the headaches and impaired hearing that come with it. Hope you find your cure.

I am not allowed to put name brands so I will just give you the name of the herbs. You must purchase 3 bottles, 1-ALJ, 2-CC-A, and 3, Lymph Gland Cleanse. I suffered for approximately 7 years, had surgery and no luck. Finally went to holistic health care. It takes approximately 9 capsules a day with lots of water and get some rest. These infections make your body very spetic, also be sure to take stool softeners or use whatever works, "fiber" to have regular bowel movements. Stay away from dairy and eat babyfood if your stomach is touchy. I can promise that your best bet is whole foods, high fiber, 10 glasses of water a day with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, stay away from sugar, and caffine products. Your body will heal, you may need to repeat this regime for a while until your body builds up its own natural defenses once again. I hope this works for you and have a wonderful trip to India. I have been blessed with good sources of information, and as always if you don't see results very soon perhaps your physician would be your best source, over time the body just gets tired and needs help. It sounds like you have been going through this for quite a while as it is. Gods speed on feeling your innate energy returning very soon.

[YEA]  This has been the most effective cure for congestion and sinus infection I have found to date.

Use a saline wash (Neti Pot) with 1/4 teaspoom of non-idodized salt + 1/8 teaspoon of powdered grapefruit seed extract (found in vitamin/health store).

Chew two cloves of garlic twice daily. It helps to drain the sinuses. Garlic contains Allicin, a broad spectrum antibiotic. It's antiviral and antibacterial, as well as anti-microbial.

Drink mugs of steaming hot chicken soup. It's comforting and hydrating and helps to loosen mucous.

Take a teaspoonful of honey before bed to soothe sore throat and reduce coughing. This is amazing--something that tastes great and really works!

Eat two-three oranges or tangerines daily.

Keep up your circulation by walking lightly daily (20 minutes) at the tail end of your cold. Increased circulation boosts the immune system and stimulates the lymph nodes to produce the killer white blood cells.

Drink a healthful smoothie of pineapple juice, strawberries and blueberries to strengthen your immune system.

DO NOT eat anything fatty or fried foods that could plug up your digestive system. If you cramp up and get constipated you slow down your recovery from a cold or sinus infection.

[YEA]  I think the ACV is great for thinning mucous of a sinus infection,but it hasn't worked well for an infection that has been going on for a number of days. I just got back from an 8 day trip and the plane (going and coming) reaked havoc on my congested sinus passages. While I was out of town, I stopped by a Whole Foods and got some acv to take. I kept my pH alkaline by sipping some acv in a water bottle every 5-10 minutes. It certainly made my nose run! I also squirted 3% hydrogen peroxide from a nasal spray bottle up each nostril... just one squirt. It burned like crazy for a minute, but definitely helped. When things got stirred up again after flying home, I decided to up my water intake (One glass of water every 2 hours), take oregano oil (to fight the infection), and one turmeric capsule (to reduce inflammation). The wild oregano oil turned my thick yellow mucous to clear in about an hour. I will continue all of this (lots of water, turmeric, oregano oil, acv) until the infection is gone. Lot of hard work to clobber the infection, but better than antibiotics. Which isn't to say I would refuse antibiotics if I really needed them! But if I don't have to, I don't.

Update to my post: The remedies worked in less than 24 hours! My sinus infection is completely gone. I am guessing the Oregano Oil killed off the infection, but all the water that I drank helped keep the mucous flowing, rather than stuck in the back of my sinus passages causing increasing pain.

[YEA]  Hey all! I love this site and just wanted to add my piece as a chronic sinus sufferer. I am 35 and still have my wisdom teeth, and agree with the person on here that said they think there is a connection between wisdom teeth and sinus pressure and infections. Anyway I wanted to suggest to everyone on here to try the greatest sinus remedy of all it is called Cyclone Cider and is available at major health food store chains. It is a mixture of apple cider vinegar, cayenne pepper, garlic horseradish root, ginger root, vitamin c, onion and parsley SO ALL bases are covered. It is a little pricey BUT worth it because I have not been able to duplicate its snappy tom type flavor myself. It works wonders and can be used in food, with apple juice of alone!

Nasal Spray With Salt, Oregano Oil and ACV   1  0   

Posted by Dianna (Las Vegas, Nv) on 04/07/2010

[YEA]  Thank you so much for this web site. I found a great treatment for recurrent sinus infection. I emptied a little nasal spray bottle to put my own concoction. I filled it about 1/3 of the way with water-added about 1/8 tsp. salt, one drop of oil of oregano, and one drop of Apple Cider Vinegar. I spray this up my nose several times a day. In two days, my sinuses and cleared up!

Neti Pot With Saline and Apple Cider Vinegar   1  0   

Posted by Eric (Spring, Texas) on 01/01/2009

[YEA]  My son (7yrs old) had a really bad sinus infection that was causing a fever really bad snoring and over all discomfort. Had this 2 days. Over the counter meds would not work. He has had this before in the past and the doctor would prescribe anti bionics. Doctors have there place, but I'm sick and tired of the meds they push. We decided to take the natural route this time around. I searched the net, found this site. Ill keep this short, but I performed a sinus rinse on my son. I took a "Netti Pot" with a little over 8oz of warm distilled water. added 1 packet of the sodium stuff and 1 tbl spoon of Apple Cider Vinegar. His fever broke the same night and it appeared to knock his infection out. He sleeps much better now. I also have my son drink ACV...1 TBS with warm water and honey like a tea. Keep in mind, anytime you do a sinus rinse, use distilled water. If your child has sinus, allergy or asthma issues, I highly recommend a sinus rinse at least 3 days a week even if they are fine. Never use more that 1 tbl on a child for a rinse. Stings! I always test on myself before application for temp of water and sting factor of ACV. Add more water if you feel the sting is a bit much for your child.

After doing this, we were able to get globs of bacteria ridden snot out of my child's nose. I know most of you will have hell doing a rinse on a child. My son is an avid swimmer. He also accompanies me when I spearfish in the salt waters of Baja Mexico. He's use to salt water, in and out of his nose. But I encourage you to keep trying. It does work. It is truly amazing to see something so common and available work so quickly. I was so impressed with the results, I had to post hoping this remedy can help others. If you have never used a Netti Pot. please follow the instructions thoroughly. Try it on yourself first to get the technique own. Most pots can be brought at a local convience store with a pharmacy section.Pots come with packets of sodium that I used. I also added the ACV for more potency. Based on my observation, the ACV was the key factor in the rinse. The sodium alone didn't have as dramatic an effect.

You mentioned to try the solution from the neti pot on yourself first because sometimes it can sting. The only reason it would ever sting is if you have too much salt and then it will steer you away FOREVER. The best advice and porportions are to never use more than exactly 1/2 teaspoon of salt to 2 cups (16 oz.) of the purest water you can get (distilled, boiled tap, purified) and use 1/2 tsp total of soda. That way it will never ever burn or sting. Hope this helpd too. The Neti pot has been a well hidden secret for far too long.

Nose Blowing   1  0   

Posted by Emgee (Broken Hill, Nsw Australia) on 05/25/2012

I used to suffer from so much sinus trouble it was awful. Then one day I told a chinese doctor about it. He said to keep your sinuses clear use this remedy. Make sure you're sitting down because you will get dizzy. Hold your nose and BLOW...... You must blow real hard. This helps to clear out your sinuses all the way to your ears. It didn't help straight away and it hurt like crazy but continuing to do this for weeks once or twice a day my sinus passages cleared and pretty much cleared up all my sinus problems. I think what it does in the end is actually enlarge your sinus canals and they continue to be able to drain more freely from then on. Also, more advise from him was to make sure you clean your nose out with warm water while in the shower. This helps clear the nose of mucous. I always blow it clean in the shower. Not very ladylike lol but it works.

Actually according to the link below blowing your nose will force more mucus into the sinuses and worsen your inflammation.

"But nose blowing generated enormous pressure — "equivalent to a person's diastolic blood pressure reading, " Dr. Hendley said — and propelled mucus into the sinuses every time."

[YEA]  Olbas oil prevents sinus infections. I used to get sinus infections all the time due to perfumes in the office I work in but since using the inhalant, I haven't had one. It's made up of essential oils of peppermint, eucalyptus, cajeput, wintergreen, juniper and clove.

Hi Valeria - Since that was an old post (2007), the person may not respond. Olbas actually has an inhalant that you can get at any health food store that sells Olbas oil. It's very similar in style to the Vicks inhalant (it's a little tube with an opening that you put up one nostril and breathe deeply) - except Olbas has a different blend of oils (more natural). If you can't find it, you can also put a couple of drops of Olbas oil on a piece of tissue, cup it around your nose and breathe deeply (I do this sometimes when I fly to avoid congestion). Good luck!

Olive Leaf   1  0   

Posted by Linda Redmond (Asheville, North Carolina) on 10/22/2007

[YEA]  The best and only cure that worked for my lifelong, formerly constant, miserable, life-controlling and debilitating sinus infections is inexpensive Olive Leaf. I make tea from it (boil about a shotglass-full or less of dried leaves in 2 cups water for 20 minutes - it makes one cup of tea). It is also available at health stores in powder, capsule, tincture and supercritical gel cap form. I find tea the most effective, but have had great results with any decent, reputable brand. Olive leaf is known as a wide-spectrum godsend for many, many illnesses and infections from mild to severe to dangerous. I have always found it easy to look up on the web. It is an ancient tried-and-true herb with a fascinating history, reported to give no side effects except a slight lowering of blood pressure and a non-stimulant mild increase in energy (probably due to its elimination of infectious forces in the body). Take it slow at first if you are highly and chronically infected, so you don't get a big healing crisis/die-off reaction. Dosages are available in books and websites, but you can take it every day (I usually do), and it is reported to be impossible to overdose on it -- I feel lightheaded if I take more than 4-6 cups in a day (a very large amount which I'd only use if severely ill) and I am a small individual. It seems to be a best-kept secret, so spread the word and many blessings!

Thanks Linda, I find it interesting that you say the tea works best for you. Makes me wonder if the simplest, most patient forms, are the best approaches to healing. The subtleties of preparation and ritual may be just as important as the herb. In this case the hot water infusion could make something available that pills don't. My first instinct is to run out and buy the pill form, but am learning the slower and much cheaper method of buying bulk herbs may have greater rewards..I am going to try your tea...thanks. Also thanks EC..The process of just reading others health successes can have a healing effect in itself.
