When I first tried ACV, it worked very well. It cleared my stuffed nose for the first time in ten years. I've beem using ACV for a while now and I find that the ACV is no longer working on my sinuses. If anything, it upsets my stomache and my nose is still stuffed. So I'm online again looking for something that works
I'VE BEEN SICK WITH A REALLY BAD COLD NOW FOR 4 DAYS. I DEVELOPED REALLY BAD NASAL CONGESTION AND WAS HAVING A LOT OF TROUBLE BREATHING AND SWALLOWING BECAUSE OF ALL THE MUCOUS. I TEND TO GET A LITTLE FREAKED OUT ABOUT THINGS SO I FREAKED OUT!! I CAME ONLINE TO TRY TO FIND A HOME REMEDY THAT I CAN USE AND I READ ABOUT THE WONDERS OF APPLE CIDER VINEGAR SO I LITERALLY RAN ACROSS THE STREET AND BOUGHT MYSELF A BOTTLE OF HEINZ APPLE CIDER VINEGAR AND TRIED A COUPLE OF TBL SPOONS OF THE VINEGAR W/WATER AND IT CLEARED IT RIGHT AWAY. I'M GLAD I FOUND THIS BECAUSE I'M 1 MONTH PREGNANT AND I DIDN'T WANNA TAKE ANY MEDICATIONS. I HAVE A QUESTION THOUGH, I'M NOT A DOCTOR SO I DON'T ACTUALY KNOW IF THIS WOUD BE BAD FOR MY BABY. WOULD IT?
When I was pregnant I had severe sinus congestion. I could not breathe and suffered for one month with no cure in sight. My doctor refused to reccomend anything, she claimed that it would eventually clear up, I begged her for something and when she finally did and I read the ingredients and side effects and I decided not to take it. Finally I remembered the old ACV and took it with one clove of garlic in warm water. My sinuses cleared. I continued to take it throughout my pregnancy every night and never experienced another cold or sinus infection the whole duration. What is more I was high risk, plus overweight and never experienced complications. ACV is surely for the healing of nations.
I have forgotten as I have not had the sinus condition for over 15 years, that apple cider vinegar has many great properties. It clears up many infectious disorders in the internal system, digestive tract disorders, not to mention the least. It should come as no surprise to all who write these great letters of response that we are our own worst enemies and fund millions to the health care systems when in fact we can learn to take care of ourselves with a little common sense and healthy diet.
Thank you so much!! For the last few days I've been dealing with the worst sinus congestion I can ever remember having. I did an internet search hoping to find something to help, I came upon your website and although I was skeptical I tried mixing 1/4 C ACV with 16 oz of water and downed it all at once. That was only 20 minutes ago and I can feel a difference all ready, my sinuses are draining and my ears are starting to clear. I wish I would have known about this sooner! Thanks again!
i had lived with what i thought was a migraine for four days, on day five--my sinuses were rock hard. i thought i would go to urgent care, but decided to go online to see if there were any natural cures. i tried the 1/2 cup acv and 1/2 cup water; and also the acv steaming and i put colloidal silver in my nasal spray. the nasal spray and the acv steam made my sinuses burn for 45 minutes--but about an hour later--i got relief. i decided to do the cure 3 times today. here i sit 9 hours later--yet to do my last treatment--and i feel absolutely normal. my husband just said--"hey, where's your ice pack?" I've had one on my head, face and neck for five days! I am so thankful for this website and I encourage anyone with a sinus problem to give this a try. Just drinking the acv mixture didn't do the trick for me--but using the acv steam and nasal treatment with the acv drink surely has proven to be the answer for me. thanks!
oh wow! tried the ACV remedies 10 minutes ago. already i feel better. i was desperate to try anything at this point. i have high blood pressure and i am severely limited in what i can take for sinus problems. i tried a few ounces in a glass of water and also did the half and half steam thing about 10 minutes ago and i'm feeling better already! i actually think i will be able to sleep through the night! thankyou !thankyou! thankyou!
I suffered from bad throat and cough, blocked nose especially at night. It was so bad that as if I could not breathe, so I have to get up so often night causing sleeping problems. It was so bad that doctors thought I had asthma. Whenever I eat spicy food, I tend to get choked easily and it was so embarrassing. Sought help from ENTs (Ear Nose & Throat Doctors) but no avail and to extent they recommended surgeries. It was a friend who recommended me and literally forced to drink a mug at her apartment. In fact, it was almost instant remedy on road to recovery. I mix a tablespoon with a mug of water and drink in the morning. After about a month, it sort of cleared the irritants in my throat and I hardly have any bad throat problems, blocked nose problems at night and I hardly cough like I used to have like a monthly occurence. Apple cider really helps on sinuses. No need to go to doctors! Now I can sleep so soundly.
After an illness that compromised my immune system about 4 years ago, I was plagued with such severe allergies that I practically could never breath out of my nose! I couldn't even think about going anywhere without kleenex and allergy medicine. About 5 months ago I read about the benefits of ACV and started taking it twice a day. It took a couple of months but now my allergies are almost complete gone! I never take medicine and rarely blow my nose! I can't believe it! I thought I would have to deal with this the rest of my life. Thank god for ACV!
I've been taking acv for 18mths now, but ran out a week ago & didnt buy my bottle right away.In the week that it took me to replenish my acv, I have developed sinusitus & tonight, after taking my first dose, got relief from the pain almost immediately. ACV definately works for sinuses & your site confirms that its not just me it works for. I was looking for clues & found this site.
Hi all, just to tell you guys that I pour ACV on a paper towel and sniff it to clear block nose, this method helps me especially during night times woke up with a block nose. I started ACV for just couple of weeks, I will post again few months later on how I struggle with ill health and how this website helps me when my recovery is more concrete. Thanks for keeping this website free for everyone. (It meant so much to me). I am sure your good spirits will be rewarded.

Acv+salt for blocked sinus - magic!!! this is the 3rd time I have used acv and it always works like magic for blocked sinuses!
First time I suffered for a whole year - did steam but didn't work. I was offered twice to do surgery but was reluctant. It paid off.
My sister (bless her) told me about the site. I hate the smell of ACV. So it too time for me... out of desperation (I felt ill at least twice a week). I filled a kettle with ACV... added salt... turned the kettle on... and as soon as the steam started... switched off... and inhaled the steam mainly via the blocked nose. (even though it feels it is not going in) I did so on and off for a few minutes. Took a half hour break... repeated... and it was gone completely!
That was six years ago. Two weeks ago... it happened again.. it just didn't go away till I did this treatment! A couple of times in the evening. I woke up in the morning like a new person. It works like magic every time! Thank you! Thank you GOD for the medicine that can be found abundantly and naturally! DO NOT HESITATE TO DO IT! I hope to get positive feedback.
The beauty of it.. no need to DRINK it!! And it does a light descaling of the kettle. (you will need much more to descale properly).
I found home remedies with acv and thought it worked great. For those who can't handle the taste try steam inhaling to clear the congestion. For a simple and quick session, I filled a small pan with half water and half acv and boil on the stove. Once it comes to a full boil turn off the stove and just breathe in the steam. My husband thought I just worked a miracle on him with this simple procedure. Good luck!!
sinus congestion relief: Mix 2 or 3 teaspoons of brown sugar, 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar. Tastes great and relieves congestion. Even better: add 1/4 cup raisins and boil, then allow to cool.

Sinus Congestion with Sore Throat:
I've always taken a dash of Cayenne Pepper (I'd say a teaspoon, but it's really as much as you can comfortably handle as an individual) with 2 tablespoons of Lemon Juice and 2 tablespoons of Honey in a mug of boiling water for a sore throat.
Great relief and tastes great too.
After reading other posts and some experimentation I am now changing my recipe to..
1 dash Cayenne Pepper
2 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
2 tablespoons Honey
1 Mug boiling water
Same great taste, but better sinus relief as well as sore throat.
