Goldenseal tincture, I have from Earthpharm.
Use 1/2 dropper in 1/2 teaspoon salt solution. I used a dropper with my head tilted to ceiling, one dropper of the mix into each nostril. It didn't burn at all. It helped more than anything so far. Also drank a cup of water with a 1/2 dropper of goldenseal tincture. As GS also has berberine it passes through the blood-brain barrier, it's powerful, and helping as mentioned -more than any other remedy.

Oh my gosh it was finally moving. And my head no longer felt like it was ready to explode. So after that every few hours, I wrapped the bristles in a cloth so as not to scratch, and after heating my face with a warm rice pack, I would vibrate my sinus cavities. Every time I was able to blow out infection.
Now, I am still using the neti pot also with povidone iodine, Grapefruit seed extract and xylitol and now that is helping to rinse out mucous (hadn?t touched it before). Still draining a few days later, but I am not coughing after sleeping where the drainage settles in my airway, and am feeling almost human again. Will be ordering a silicone face cleaner/massager that vibrates so the bristles wont be an issue.
I have tried almost everything, including pressure points and massage, cayenne pepper drinks, honey, cider vinegar, sage tea, peroxide, povidone iodine, GSE, xylitol in the neti pot, etc. with no success. I used to be able to forestall an infection if I used the neti pot as soon as I could feel one coming on, but that no longer stops an infection for me. I don?t see a lot of research out there?.wondering if I do this on a regular basis will it keep sinuses open?
I hope this helps someone out there..

My nose feels better, but im still a bit stuffy, especially at night with a white cloudy frothy mucus with the odd (5) small red spots of blood. Not sure if this is the virus that has been sticking around or is it from the peroxide?? I'm also wondering what adjustments I need to make to get rid of it

For simple ease of use, I just buy the oil in supplement form & use it as needed. You could also try to wash your nasal passages using a regular nasal saline squeeze bottle, no need for Nettie pots or wasting money on them, the standard nasal saline bottle works better, you can control the Flo better so no pain or discomfort & can be used to just rinse out the nose with plain water.

I had been googling the topic and stumbled across people inhaling or using the neti pot to solve the problem. Since I wasn?t interested in using a neti pot, it seemed logical to me to somehow get the OOB vapors into my nose and throat. The good news is that it was VERY EASY, and quick. All I had to do was microwave half a cup of water in a mug for 2 min and put 2 drops of OOB in it. Once it was ready, I would take 20 to 30 deep breaths (working my way up to it, since the first few inhalations sting) over the next couple of minutes (with eyes closed, otherwise it will sting your eyes). The great thing about OOB is that it has multiple traits. It?s anti-microbial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, and anti-oxidant. But the thing that really surprised me is that it?s also an anesthetic/analgesic.
So, while the first 10 sniffs stung, after a while the stinging went away and OOB?s analgesic property kicked in. Any pain or discomfort in my sinuses or throat was pretty much eliminated, and that lasted many hours. If the pain lingered I would do another round. That alone (the pain relief) would be enough to recommend the regimen, but it also hits the viruses and bacteria causing the problem. Wow! And to cap it all off, each ?treatment? costs about 3 cents.
To be clear, if your pain is in your sinuses, inhale via your nose. If it?s in the throat, inhale through your mouth. With throat pain, I would also do the water/peroxide gargle to hit it from both sides.
Without any doubt, this is the MOST powerful thing in my arsenal to fight colds and viruses. It?s truly amazing. And I?m shocked that there?s not been more written on the Internet about this. Most people recommend putting a few drops of OOB under the tongue, but I?ve tried that, and it doesn?t compare to the immediate benefits of inhaling it. I hope you try this out and reap the benefits. God Bless you all!

Take 35% food-grade H2o2 and dilute it to 3% (one oz of food-grade 35% H2o2 + 11 oz of distilled water = 3% of Food Grade H2o2). Then put the 3% in a spray bottle. Spray into your nose and mouth every 2 hours and when spraying into the mouth breathe in deeply.
My sinus infection and all related symptoms were gone in 48 hours.

Then I was reminded that my grandmother would serve my grandfather and me, a drink she called "Switchel" 3 Tbs Apple Cider Vinegar and Honey to taste, for 1. it is a great thirst quencher and 2. for it helps replace electrolytes lost to excessive sweating. I started preparing a gal of this each day and the cramps and headaches stoped.

Ingest once a day. It's very powerful. You can also steam inhale. Post nasal drip is thought to be caused either a fungus or mold that's got into the sinus. Get a lrg bath towel, a small saucepan pot of hot water, and wild oregano oil. We like Oreganol (no affiliation, just like it). Place 5-6 drops wild oregano oil in the pot, cover your head and pot with the towel, close your eyes, and breath in deeply through your nose. You can do this am & pm.

It stings less when you dilute the lemon juice (or lime) with distilled water. But, most people say it works better full strength.
It?s very simple to do. Squeeze out one teaspoon of lemon or lime juice into a spoon. Close off one nostril with your finger and snort up the juice in the spoon in the other nostril. Right after you do this you will have the feeling that you snorted a ?blow-fish? up in your head. The pain only last a minute or two.
It worked for me. Cleared up the sinuses immediately.

I'm concerned about the pressure. It won't fizz inside your brain will it?
I have had a concussion, and sometimes get acephalgic migraines on the left side, and I have a chronic sinus infection.
So, is it just from the sinus infection?
