Xylitol Nasal Spray
xylitol nasal spray: Has anyone tried this for sinusitis or allergy relief?
oh wow. i love xylitol. i am diabetic and have not been able to eat sugar for years. since i found xylitol i have occasionally used it for mouth rinses and also on foods when i want a sweetener. you know that it is poisonous for dogs?
well, i just want to say that i ate a tablespoon of xylitol (hahaha) mixed with VCO and cocoa powder and peanuts.... you probably know what happened...
i had very bad cramps and diaharreah (sp?) the next day... be careful with the amount of xylitol you use - i don't know if snorting it into your sinuses can have this effect - but it is a crazy side effect IMO.
i also use a home-made version of a neti pot. what i do is put sea-salt (and occasionally a little baking soda too) in a glass of warm water and hold one nostril closed and stick the other one in the solution and inhale it. it comes out my mouth and washes down my throat. i can't get it to come out my other nostril using this method - but it does seem to wash allergins, etc. from my sinuses.

I am inquiring to the last paragrafh of your e-mail. I have been suffering with sinusitis for 5 days now I went to the doctor two days ago and she put me on 500mg Amoxicillin which sorry to say doesn't seem to be helping I tried the baking soda, sea salt with the water this morning and immediately noticed a difference in my being able to breathe better. After you tried this did you have any further complications that I should be aware of?
