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!
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.

Sinusitis cured! Its been 2 years and hasn´t come back.
I cured my sinus infection completely. I took 1 tablespoon of ACV in apple juice daily, also I flushed my nose with a netty pot every morning with: warm boiled water, a pinch of salt and two drops of Citrobiotic( grapefruit seed oil). I cleaned out all that nasty infection and kept doing it until all was gone. I also stopped eating dairy and gluten! Very very important. I notice that if someday I have a tiny bit of yogurt the next day I wake up with problems breathing. So keep in mind what you eat is very very important!
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...

Here in Kentucky, we grow up with grandma's home remedies and cure-all's. We just put a new twist on those old-remedies. I wanted to share a solution to Chronic Sinusitis. I have suffered from sinus problem for 20 years. I found this guys post where he use garlic tea loaded up into a nasal mist pump spray and got relief from his sinusitis in a week. So, I tried it. It helped but did not cure it.
Back to the drawing board. So I'm thinking, why not use ACV (w/mother)? I changed out the garlic tea for ACV in distilled water and WOW! It dried up my congestion in 2 hours, opened up my clogged eustachian tubes in 4 hours, and completely cured within 24 hours. All without a trip to the doctor office, antibiotic, flonase nasal spray, etc… and a fat bill to go with it. I was blasting each nostril every hour or so. It has been 3 weeks now and I'm still clear. If my nose feels stuffy, I blast it with the ACV pump spray and I'm good for the day. Try it, you won't regret it.
Now for side effects. It burns alittle. If it ain't burning, it ain't working. I notice a loud ringing in my ears. I'm sure it had something to do with the clogged eustachian tubes. They had been clogged for months. It does go away after a few hours. You will taste ACV in the back of your throat.
Apple Cider Vinegar Nasal Spray: The ACV nasal spray should provide relief to those suffering from nasal congestion. ACV thins out and eventually removes mucus that is blocking passages in the nasal sinus. The antimicrobial properties will kill the pathogenes causing the sinusitis.
Mix 5 to 10 drops raw apple cider vinegar (w/mother) with 1 tablespoon distilled water.
Pour the ACV- distilled water mixture to a clean and dry nasal mist pump sprayer that the pump can be screwed off. Got mine at Dollartree.
3 Spray the ACV- distilled water mixture to the affected nostril.
Spray at least thrice daily until you get rid of sinus infection.
This remedy is expected to provide relief to nasal congestion within 12 hours.
I had a minor cold which was under control in flight with Benadry. However, as plane descended the pressure in the eustacian tubes and sinuses became greater and greater. Once aircraft landed ears were so clogged I could only hear as if in a bubble. Tried everything natural to clear sinuses and eustachian tubes except Apple Cider Vinegar.
I did the Apple Cider Vinegar nasal rinse for this sudden onset case of altitude induced sinusitis and it cleared in a very very short time. Thanks!
After eight weeks of terrible headaches every afternoon and evening esp. when I bent down, I realised I probably had sinusitis. The doctor prescribed antibiotics and steroids (obviously) which I turned down as I have an auto immune disorder. I bought a neti pot but it seemed to make it worse. I was pretty desperate and then found your site. After one Apple Cider Vinegar steam I could feel the pressure subsiding and two days later (after 3 Apple Cider Vinegar steams a day) I feel brilliant. Thank you so much ðŸ˜
ACV STEAM FOR SINUSITIS
Hi there. So for a whole month I have been suffering with sinusitis. It started off as a cold that wouldn't go away. The sinus blockage went from bad to worse. Dairy products made it even worse. So realised that needed refrain from dairy products too. Tried steaming with ACV and water. Each time I did it it helped but came back. So I decided to use ACV with less water so that it will be more concentrated. Oh boy oh boy just that one treatment and I felt like a new person.
Did it the second time and now I feel back to normal. Completely. I am glad I didn't agree to take the antibiotics!
I also have been drinking lemon juice with honey on a daily basis.
ACV works like magic.... after a whole month of suffering for nothing!
It was quite strong... so u must close your eyes and mouth. I use the face steamer... so that the steam is not too strong... put over a towel and that does the trick!
Thank you earth clinic. Wish everyone good health and a speedy recovery!
I have had problems with chronic sinus infections, had sinus surgery which did no good and tubes put in both ears. My doctors had me on round after round of some very serious antibiotics, erythromycin which gave me yeast infections and diarrhea; clindamycin while I was pregnant which carries a pregnancy warning; and doxycycline which had me so sun sensitive, I could not even walk out to the mailbox without using sunscreen. After reading that most sinus infections are caused by viruses, I wondered why those doctors kept prescribing antibiotics without even doing a culture. Now 20 years later my normal flora is resistant to several different antibiotics now. So I don't take them and I don't dare go to a doctor with a sinus infection. I just got a new infection right before Christmas. I got over it, but when I went back to the elementary school where I tutor, I caught something else from the kids that went right straight to my sinuses.
I'm currently using saline rinses and drinking lots of ACV+honey. I also use a Vick's personal steam inhaler with menthol/eucolyptus pads in it and breathing steam throughout the day. I'm taking Turmeric capsules as directed on the bottle. Now I'm going to try the ACV nasal rinse.
ACV for sinusitis: I was wondering what the proportions for drinking the apple cider was and what the dilution would be to actually do a sinus rinse with it. I'm battling a sinus infection for two weeks now and don't want to do any more antibotics or steroids. Thanks.

This is my 1st experience in having Maxillary sinusitis, which is where the sinus under your checkbone is blocked, as well as the normal symptoms. I have had pressure in my cheekbone and a toothache, as this type of sinusitis brings it on, a constant anoying pounding in my jaw and teeth. Oh and if that wasn't bad enough my ear also hurts from the pressure in my cheek, making it sensitive to sound. Went to my doctor and he gave me steriod nose drops which helped with my nose blockage, but not my cheek pain and toothache. I was desperate and in need of relief so I surffed the web and came across this website and apple cider viniger.
Been drinking 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in hot water with honey and cinnamon, and the pressure in my cheek is relieved immediately, it doesnt go completly away but it takes it down to 30% which is great for me, been also taking 1 tablespoon in water and sipping during the day, this helps my nose run and the mucus to run down the back of my throat (not nice I know) this has helpd alot as its no longer Orange and is now clear, hopefully if I keep this up it will all go. I have also been chopping raw garlic in quarters and swallowing it as its anti bacterial so every little helps, right? I will try anything at this moment as this is no fun, if anyone has any further tips do let me know, I'll try anything.
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!
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.
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!
