Just liked to say after reading posts on ACV, this is a super remedy maybe even a cure. Anyway suffered with polyps for 19 years now, and had one surgery to remove. Dr said I'd be on flonase the rest of my life. Didn't want that but did for little while. Then said there's got to be other options. By then polyps were coming back, so found sinus wars an that only kept them at bay, if u drink alcohol then they would flare up. So thanks to earthclinic reviews ACV, has done more than anything. I'm only on day 4 but after having a polyp the size of grape coming to the end of ur nostril, u have to try.

So I started swabbing inside an on the polyp for 2 days. Started turning white with full strength, but then had to back off off polyp and just do inside around of nasal area, because of blood, so I diluted with purified boiled water to ACV. 1 ounce dropper bottle one teaspoon to the rest water, may sting a little but much safer. Anyway both nasals are almost clear after the 4 day. I also take Table spoon in 1/4 cup water morn, noon, and nite, going real good, like I said this has been the best remdey to date or maybe even a cure the way it has been working sinusus are feeling the best ever!! Just stay with it it works!! Thanks again for the reviews on ACV it is a miracle solution!!

I have had sinus problems and a polyp in my left nostril for 18 months. I couldn't sleep and sounded like Darth Vader all night! My GP prescribed steroid spray, it worked on the polyp but only temporarily. He then suggested the salt wash from a nasal aspirator but couldn't find a reference it to any of his pharmacy books, so gave me more steroids. I got the NeilMed kit from Amazon instead of using the steroids, and although very soothing and much easier than I was expecting, it didn't clear the mucus or the polyp which by now was appearing from my nostril if I tried clearing my nose. Thanks to your site, and others, I picked up that apple cider vinegar can help. I was desperate so like your previous reviewer. I used 2.5ml ie ½ tsp in 240ml water (distilled not chlorinated tap water).

I pumped this up my nose, and at first thought Oh No! What I have just done! The discomfort in the sinuses in my forehead quickly subsided and I did this twice daily for a few days. It started working from day 1.

After that, I used neat cider vinegar on a cotton bud, and massaged it as far in and around my nostrils as I could. My prescription was dated 3rd Dec 2016 and its now the 31st. My polyp has completely gone, and I can breathe easily through my nose.

My hypothesis is that the problem originates from a candida overgrowth. The lactobacillus in the LIVE ie unpasteurised cider vinegar killed off the fungus. (lots of people have found that mold in the home causes the same problem)

The Mayo Clinic recognises that Lactobaccilli can treat vaginal fungal infections and this is similar - just a different part of the body with a different biome. I suspect that the cider vinegar has treated the symptoms, but the underlying problem of candida needs to be dealt with by taking refined carbs, maybe gluten or other foods out of my diet. I am just about to start 30 day diet to see if the last remaining bit of congestion, now so mild I wouldn't trouble a doctor with it, will go completely. I hope this helps someone else. I have been grateful to all other reviewers.

Let me just say.. ACV is the cure to nasal polyps... After long years, stuffy nights, ears popping.. even tears ducts blockage, mouth breathing..taking medicines that caused acne breakouts ughhhh the struggle.. I read this post on here about using ACV.. and it only literally took bout 48 hrs before huge difference.. I been suffering from polyps since 2004.. never undergo surgery cause seemed very pointless after all the research.. and I literally tried everything.. I must say ACV gave me my life back.. MRI showed my left nostril was completely blocked..no air whatsoever on left side.. which resulted in loss of smell.. the things we take for granted til its gone...

So here it is..all you is 2 household items: Need is organic ACV with mother, and Q-tips...

Wash hands, take qtip.. dip it in the ACV to soak tip...then use it to gently swirl inside of ya nasal passage (it will sting for about 15 secs) ... repeat once, but do so 3 times daily... (at night it helps to place tissue or cotton ball on side after you apply ACV method)

When I tell you.. I literally can blow my nose, and feel absolutely no blockage now and only been doing it for 4 days... I got my sense of smell back completely ..and the biggest polyp that I literally can see that was blocking my nasal cavity shrunk 75% already.. in just 4 days.. I'm so excited.. I got my life back..

I love this! [ Sorry for typos below ]

WARNING: Not for those with low pain tolerance and impatient. DO NOT READ IF YOU GET NAUSEOUS OR GROSSED OUT EASILY.

I have had surgeries for my nasal papillomas for 18 years, even since I was born. Since I am turning twenty I decided I HATE surgeries, so I wanted to try something else. I've tried tea tree[ burned but did nothing but clear sinus a bit], turmeric[ taken orally, worked slightly but not that good], I've even tried Indol-3-Carbinol [ which worked great! And I had them falling out left and right, but got too expensive and a formula switch for my favorite brand stopped me] so I finally tried apple cider vinegar again recently. I've been doing it everyday after work for three days now and here's my process.

Day 1

I apply it using a dropper and try not to let it slide down back of nose, although it DOES and stings but oh well. [ This mistake was helpful, as I noticed the one in the back fell out when this happened about an hour later, I just decided to use a cotton swab that wasn't soaking to prevent burning]

The warts turn white, but I keep dropping apple cider vinegar on them for about an hour or two straight then go to bed.[ watch youtube and be patient! This will help.

Day 2

I wake up smelling so well! Its about 20% clear, which is small but if u struggle with polyps or papillomas u know 20 is BETTER THAN NOTHING OKAY.

So I notice it is a bit smaller in size, and when I go back to add more after work [ for another hour or two] I notice the wart in the center of my nose begin to bleed out a bit, [ I know this is graphic I'm sorry] and when I try to add more vinegar it STINGS, like applying alcohol to a cut kind of stinging, but its nothing I cant handle due to my pain tolerence.

If u get to this stage stay strong because the third day is so worth it.

Day 3

I wake up smelling 50 percent better. NO JOKE! The wart in my right nose is 50% smaller, and has a small [again I'm sorry for the graphic and gross details] crust over it as it healed from last nights beating lol. I remove the crust and blow my nose, and notice that it is super reddish pink before I apply the vinegar.

But I have just applied more ACV to it and more warts from the back have fallen out, and the main one is turning a brighter white and I am so excited for tomorrow. If this is three days imagine a month!

Closing: ACV hurts. It also hurts ur normal nose skin a bit, but apply Vaseline and you should be alright. it wont burn ur skin [ it didn't to mine but may for sensitive skin] .

THIS STUFF WORKS. NOTHING AND I MEAN NOTHING has worked for me ever, and in three days [ a bit painful] nonetheless I have had such good results. I can actually look people in the eye again! So happy to say.

Please try this, even take it internally if u want, but applying it directly gave me these results.

I had tried tree tea oil, and castor oil in the affected nostril with some improvement. This went on for several weeks. I then tried the ACV in steaming hot water, inhaled it for several minutes and had wonderful results. I also started breathing exersizes. I will continue the AVC .

I recently had a problem with a nasal infection and polyps blocking one side of my nose. I discovered your site and tried ACV and by next day my nose was clear. Meanwhile my husband had a sinus problem and I wanted him to try ACV as well. He didnt like the taste... So I am better and he still has sinus... go figure! Your site is excellent - thanks so much.
