freeone (oregon) on 03/17/2023: This is very effective for sinus infections.
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.

It stings, but it's a natural antibiotic, and the neti pot gets the antibiotics directly to the site of the infection. The best part is that the worse the infection seems, the more immediate & dramatic the cure! This cure was give to me by a homeopath, & I've used it many many times. In fact I'm off to the health food store right now to get another box of tea bags.
Beth (Roseville, MN) on 08/26/2006: For sinus problems use goldenseal power mixed with water to make a paste. Put it up your nose with Q-tip. Repeat until symptoms disappear. I have tried EVERYTHING else and THIS WORKS!
Kim (Milwaukee) on 03/01/2004: When I feel an attack coming on (due to allergies or weather change) I start taking Goldenseal tablets. If you catch the attack in the early stages, the goldenseal will stop an infection and clear up congestion. The mix of Echinacea and goldenseal didn't work for me. Once the infection has a foothold however, the goldenseal didn't help much.
