Wild Indigo Extract   1  0

[YEA]  I also have a question besides sharing my experience with the Wild Indigo herbal extract from Eclectic Institute. I have used it for the last two years, and it works better than the Grape Seed Extract (GSE) for me. I take 15-20 drops along with 10-12 drops of Echinacea/Golden Seal extract 3 times per day for 10-14 days. However, if you are a first-time user of Wild Indigo, start at a low dose of 5 drops and then increase it, otherwise you may vomit as I did on the second day when I first used it and I started at a high dose. I typically see definite improvement in my symptoms in 4-5 days. This remedy, however, treats the bacterial infection of sinus, not any fungal problem or the underlying cause.

My sinus problem started 3-4 years ago, and it has become a chronic problem. One easy way for me now to get sinusitis is to get exposed to a cold air draft such as the air conditioner in a car or indoor. I do suffer from hay fever, but I have had that for the last three decades without suffering from sinusitis until a few years ago.

And my question is: Has any of your website visitors had this kind of chronic sinus problem--from exposure to cold air, rather than eating ice creams or allergies? And have they found a reliable remedy for it, and do they know what causes it? When exposed to the cold draft, soon my nose clogs up and the blow of the cold air feels like a hammer pounding on my forehead. Incidentally, I am going to try your homeopathic sinus remedy #7 on your website, but Dolisos has been bought out by Boiron which has decided to discontinue the Aspergillis remedies and thus they are no longer available. However, I got lucky by calling the Santa Monica Homeopathic Pharmacy in Santa Monica, California and they found a homeopathic manufacturing company named National which makes that remedy. I am waiting for my special order to arrive, and it will take several months before I could judge whether or not it works for me.

Lastly, here is a website which provides some useful medical information from an MD on chronic sinusitis I would appreciate any practical information you may provide regarding this kind of sinus problem which you may have received from other sufferers. Also thank you for your informative website, and good luck.

Xylitol and Sea Salt Rinse   1  0

[YEA]  I thought I would share some very good information and my experience regarding sinus infections or sinusitis.

I had been diagnosed with severe sinusitis after I had an MRI for something else. I've tried many things over the years and had suffered constant congestion/swelling and loss of taste and smell.

The neti pot was helping with salt, but I discovered some huge results after much research. Using DISTILLED water, not spring water in the neti pot with a half teaspoon of all natural sea salt and a half tablespoon of Xylitol. Both disolved in warm distilled water. Spring water can irritate the sinus membranes. Xylitol has been proven to kill and fight bacteria and really helps flush out mucus!

After flushing my sinuses with this sea salt/Xylitol neti pot mix, I then drink a glass of my favorite juice with my Spirulina Powder that has CHLOROPHYLL. Chlorophyll also is great for killing bacteria in the sinuses. As soon as I drink a glass of this, my sense of taste and smell come back within a half hour at 100%!

The powder I have been using is expensive and I don't feel everyone has to buy this exact brand, only the ingredients are important. The brand I've tried is contains: Spirulina Powder, Beta-Carotene, B-1, B-2, B-12, Calcium, Iron, Gamma Linolenic Acid and Chlorophyll.

If I do those two things as much as possible, I never have infections. There is also a saline/Xylitol spray. Anyone with sinusitis or chronic issues should really try these two things!

I tried to find the Xylitol nose spray here in Europe without success. It is maybe something only sold in the US.

Hi to Francisca, I just ordered this product from Amazon called Breathe EaseXL. I haven't used it yet but it has xylitol in a saline mix without preservatives. I will paste the link below:

Thanks Mary but I don't have the nasal irrigator. We have just had friends over from the US and I could have asked them to try to find the Xylitol nasal spray for me. Funny they don't sell it here in Europe, at least I have never managed to find it but thanks for the tip anyway.

If you can find xylitol, there are a number of recipes available on the Internet to make your own spray (ingredients: water, sea salt and xylitol). Xylitol from birch trees originated in Finland (which might help you find a source in Europe) but there are other types out there - mostly from corn. Whether they use genetically modified corn is another story! The xylitol spray here in the health food store is quite expensive - $15 for a small bottle. It would be much more cost-effective to make your own and, besides, you know which type of xylitol is being used. I would imagine most sprays use the cheaper stuff made from corn. Good luck.

Halitosis from chronic sinusitis take me off balance, people are giving me that weird look, avoiding me if they can and is a very great source of embarrassment and a zero self esteem.... I'm so desperate.. I've tried antibiotics, nasal sparays but it keeps coming back like plague...
