Posted by Shirley (Inverness, Scotland) on 04/28/2007

[YEA]  I have has the worst sinus infection since january, had antibiotics 4 times, tried every cure under the sun, i had read about onion juice and another said carrot juice so thought, well i will give them both a try together. i cannot believe within an hour of drinking them the pressure had gone, the onion juice i got by boiling a heap of onions until soft mash them then sieve them, i bought carrot juice but now juice my own, am still drinking it and i think i will have at least one cup of this a day for ever , it actually tasted quite nice which surprised me, i also add tomato juice just for a bit of flavour, and sometimes when boiling the onions i put in a couple of cloves of garlic, next stop for me was the hospital, but what i believe is, there are a lot of cures and only one will work for you, but which one?

Hi, This is something I would definitely try, but I'm not sure what Oregano Juice is. Is it the oil? Or is it actual juice?

Thank you, Andreea

Hi everyone, I SWEAR BY THIS METHOD... Six years ago I came to Earth Clinic looking for a cure for my recurring Sinus infections that constantly left me with a feeling of phlegm being trapped at the back of my throat... I read a posting from someone and this was the remedy he posted on Earth Clinic... It has worked for me for the past 6 years and I do not have that phlegm or recurring sinuses anymore! Here is the remedy:

1. Go to Kroger, buy a nasal spray, empty nasal spray bottle and clean it out with water and soap.

2. Add a little water to nasal spray bottle

3. Add a little pinch of sea salt to water in bottle

4. Add a half capful of Oregano Juice

5. Stick nasal spray in nostril and inhale it, while you spray at the same time. Breathe in hard so that it reaches the Sinus or Nasal Cavity, where all the congestion is. (This is going to burn and your eyes will water, your nose will run instantly so get some tissue to wipe your nose and eyes! )

If it burns too much then it might be too strong. Try putting less Oregano Juice or add more water. You also don't want it to be too weak! The Burning is good, it works and it really burns the infection or bugs, whatever! I have used this for the past 6 years, I have told all my friends about it. I use it on my daughter whenever she comes down with a sinus infection... No more doctors office, no more antibiotics!

Also if it is a serious sinus infection that develops into a Bronchial or chest infection, then chopped up Garlic cloves in a glass of water will help clear up the Bronchial Phlegm or Garlic capsules, which will be less potent. But you will also need to take the oregano spray to take care of the Nasal congestion... In addition, if there is a suspected Ear infection or Drainage as well, you will need to put Hydrogen Peroxide drops in the ear and that will address the ears... All these things, to address the infected and congested Ears, Nose and Throat or Chest! If it gets that far...

This is in response to 09/24/2011: Joyce from Dallas. Please do NOT ever put peroxide in your ear. The bubbling can damage and even pop the ear drum. When I mentioned this to an ENT, he about flipped out.

Everything else sounds good though! :0)

Peroxide for ear infection: In reference to the person who says you can't use peroxide in your ears, I have used on myself and children, dogs etc. for over 35 years and it indeed does stop ear infections. Shame on you for retelling such lies.

I had heard of this (Dr. Oz show) and have since used it with success both for myself and my husband as he has always had issues with his ears since being a toddler. It absolutely DOES work. Give it a try. :)

Probiotic Drink   0  0

I have just had my first sinus infection. Painful and the smell was like a dead kangaroo rotting in the sun. I went to a stupid doctor and asked for something to help but asked him to ensure it was something that would not cause anxiety as antibiotics (and all pharmaceuticals) very often can. He prescribed something that could cause palpitations, nervousness and depression (and you know how pharmaceutical companies disguise the worst of it). No thanks.

Out of desperation I drank Yakult (a probiotic drink in tiny little bottles). When I gargled it and put some in my nose, there was an exponential improvement almost immediately. The bacteria obviously eat the infection. You have to be very careful with your nose obviously but I just gently let a bit drip into my nose from my hand. No fair dinkum it's awesome. Tomorrow I'm going to try the apple cider vinegar as well and hopefully that will help to completely knock it on the head. Gosh isn't sinus infection horrible!!!

Probiotics   1  1   

Posted by Laurel (Garberville, CA) on 04/19/2008

[YEA]  I've had a sinus infection for 1 1/2 months now and took 2 rounds of antibiotics and tried all kinds of remedies but the only thing that seemed to finially work was taking Probiotic Supplements ( acidophilus pills). If youve taken 1 or more rounds of antibiotics and they don't cure the sinus infection it usually means that the infection is fungal, not bacterial.When you take antibiotics they kill all the benificial baceria in your stomach and intestines which the Probiotics replenish. I started taking Probiotics and started feeling better the first day.

[NAY]   Would have to give this one a big "Nay". I heard and read so much about probiotics that I decided to try them - in both pill form, and in yogurt, on two separate occasions. With the pill, I felt sick but wasn't sure it was a direct result of taking it. Flash forward a few years, and I ate probiotics in yogurt. However, doing so seems to have changed my physiology - and not for the better, which I find quite worriesome. For example, where I used to have only a slight lactose intolerance, I can barely eat dairy products now, yogurt especially, without getting stabbing stomach cramps and excessive bloating. Please check with your doctor before taking a probiotic. They really are NOT for everyone - trust me on this one.

Quercetin, Bromelain   1  0   

Posted by Lilianne (Corona, California) on 08/14/2011

[YEA]  Just had to let people know about this supplement. I've had a chronic sinus infection for 3 weeks now. First I went to the doctor and got the usual antibiotics and was told to take zyrtec-d. After 10 days I felt no relief. My head, cheeks and jaw were pounding from the pressure. I started doing sinus rinses, acv, and purchased nature's rite sinus relief. After 5 days, I felt some relief but I still had pressure and lots of mucous coming out. I bought quercetin-bromelain from the vitamin shoppe for $25 because the worker said it worked really well so I figured why not? Omg, within the first half hour, I started breathing through my nose, my sense of smell was coming back, no mucous was coming out and absolutely no pressure. I was in heaven. Gonna take this on a daily basis. Did some research and it looks like this stuff is good for a whole bunch of other stuff. I can finally sleep at night!!

[YEA]  i am writing about the ice cream making you have the fake flu. i seen that you also talked about the red #40. well my son is 2 and everytime he had something that had red #40 he would spit up. we have not given him any in a while. and he doesnt spit up

Posted by Melody (Marysville, WA) on 09/08/2007

[YEA]  My children and I have been using the Feingold program to improve behaviour and general health for the last 5 years. I have noticed that any product, especially ice cream with artificial flavors or colors produces the fake flu and sinus infection symptoms you describe. Red #40 is of the enemy....and all the rest are just as bad! Are all sinus/flu symptoms caused by toxic chemicals in foods - no, but toxic food chemical DO make lots of people very sick!

Red Wine Vinegar   1  0   

Posted by Dolly (Melbourne, Vic, AU) on 03/22/2007

[YEA]  I went to the doctors re severe sinusitis becoming a bronchitis infection 3 weeks ago and got a cocktail of antibiotics. Recently got results of blood tests which showed I had a virus which of course antibiotics don't treat, doctor had nothing to give me for it. Don't know if it was the virus symptoms plus after effects of penicillin antibiotics. Last night my gland engorgement and bloating in stomach and pain in upper abdomen, swelling in neck and kidney with pain, had got severe I looked like I was in advanced pregnancy! There was another episode where my face and neck swelled in the night. Out of frustration and desperation to find a cure found this web site, (and because I didn't have any ACV, drank some red wine vinegar in water, and periodically cleaned my sinus's with FESS sinu-cleanse can, (contains salt). This morning everything is nearly back to normal. Is it possible that the properties in ACV are the same in all vinegars? My stomach bloating has gone down, sinusitis relieved, kidney pain usually intense in morning down) throat glands are no longer strangling me.

Reishi, Cayenne, Oregano Oil, Garlic   1  0   

Posted by Logan (Montreal, Quebec, Canada) on 02/16/2009

[YEA]  I always make tea with a japanese/chinese mushroom called reishi (ling zhi in chinese - it is the best for boosting the immune system) and I had been chewing on a few cloves of garlic (this really helped, but only temporarily) but this wasn't cutting it alone for this sinus infection I had. So after checking this site, I decided to do a combo of many of the ideas. I added cayenne pepper to the tea. I also got some wild oregano oil which I both consumed and I inhaled the steam. Basically for 2 days I constantly chewed raw garlic, inhaled steam from the tea, drank the tea, repeat. This is the third day and I now feel almost back to normal... I feel no pressure and no blockage in my nose or allergy irritations, just a very slight drip. My sinus infection had started 3 weeks ago, and before this weekend it was actually getting much much worse.

Rhubarb   1  0   

Posted by Avi (London, United Kingdom) on 01/26/2009

[YEA]  Thanks so much for the info on Borax, its doing an amazing job on my chronic candida infection. Sinus infection has been a big, BIG, painful problem, causing the kind of headache that occupies everything from the neck up. I recently learned that sniffing up 3% H2O2 can shift that, but I find it really painful and so I tried the advice of a local herb gardener who said to sniff up rhubarb juice, and it worked magnificently.
Stings a little bit, but clears out a lot within minutes and keeps working all day, so you might be slightly sniffy, but great relief, and doing it once every day keeps the sinuses clear, although I don't think its a cure, just a great way of expelling toxins. Mixing 50/50 RAW rhubarb juice and colloidal silver [in distilled water] removes the sting but isn't quite as effective as just rhubarb juice. Anyway, variations on that theme give me immediate relief from sinus headaches. This is useful to me when I detox too fast, maybe it can be useful to others.

Riboflavin, B2   1  0   

Posted by Karen (Alpharetta, Georgia) on 03/25/2008

[YEA]  Riboflavin B2 100mg right before bedtime will take care of sinus drainage.It will work in about 20 minutes. If not,try up to 250mg. I had severe sinus drainage for years.I found it hard to sit through meetings,church etc, without coughing my head off. I would eat and have a reaction to food and start coughing uncontrollably.Sometimes medications worked,sometimes not. Sometimes I would double up on medication. Now I take NOTHING!

Serrapeptase   1  0

[YEA]  Hi I have suffered most of my life with sinus problems have had an operation were they drilled the bone at top of my nose had some releif for a short time but I was told to try serrapeptase and the relief has been brilliant I take 2 80,000 tablets morning and night and they have been excellent.

Sniff Warm Water   1  0   

Posted by Diane (Foley, AL) on 12/02/2008

[YEA]  I work with crafts nearly every day and more during the months of November and December working with fine glitter. That's when my sinuses start getting a little congested. When I am through with the work I walk into the bathroom wash my hands and then fill my hands with luke warm water and sniff the water into my sinus cavity and blow several times and Walla all clear. If I don't get to do it and an infection starts I use a few drops of peroxide and it's clear within 10 to 15 minutes. It took a couple of years to realize it was what I was working with that caused the problem. Yes, I wear a mask most of the time but that stuff just flies everywhere.
