I've used apple cider vinegar many times over the years to cure a sinus infection. I am glad to see so many other people have used it too and had success. I put a few drops of organic acv in my neti pot filled with warm, distilled water. I also drink a teaspoon in water a day and two times during allergy season. It is a potent, lifesaving remedy.

Use 6 drops ACV to 8 oz water in a Neti pot for sinus infections. Works well.

Love this site as well as all the suggestions listed in this thread. For those of you who have issues with the taste of ACV, add a tsp. of honey and mix both with a cup of your favorite tea. The taste of the ACV is almost indiscernible.

I came down with the worst sinus infection I've ever had. Pretty sure it was some virus + sinus combination because not only did I have massive sinus pressure / blockage, but I also had minor aches and chills. I have always avoided ACV because it smells like nasty feet.

So long story short I finally caved. I hit up google for recipes for an ACV sinus rinse and found this website. I used the listed tonic as well as the sinus rinse, and by-golly within 24 hours I was 80% better, and within 48 hours I was 100% better. That's the fastest I have ever gotten over a sinus infection. To top it off this was the worst one to date ... ACV really showed its ability to defeat the nasty.

I'm officially a believer now and make drinking the stinky tonic part of my morning routine. As the saying goes "if it tastes bad, then it must be good for you", in this instance its the smell more than the taste but its all the same.

Side note I only did the sinus rinse ONCE! I mixed as stated in the article and added two packets of neilmed saline packets.

Organic ACV, is the best. Feeling bad with my sinus infection, I just drank 1 teaspoon of organic ACV, 1 teaspoon organic wild crafted honey, 1 teaspoon Sri Lanka cinnamon in 8 oz`s warmed distilled H2o. amazing results! This should be an everyday tonic must! ;-)

Apple Cider Vinegar for Sinus Infection... Wonderful!

I tried the rinse for the first time and although I didn't expect it to sting a little, it did clear my sinuses. I also try and drink the ACV tonic daily as I have asthma and allergies! I also know that ACV with the Mother, alkalizes in the body which is a good thing considering most of what we eat is acidic, so ACV has some amazing things that it does and its too bad Dr's don't try natural things first instead of throwing meds that usually creates other problems, but then again, if they tried natural stuff first, they wouldn't make as much money I suppose.

I remember my saintly grandmother using Apple Cider Vinegar for several different healing remedies... this year I fought 'the crud', worse than ever - taken everything I could take - even antibiotic, but to no avail... tried apple cider vinegar and I can honestly say, it worked and I feel so much better - I drink it in water and flush nostrils as well... thanks a million for the article and help...

Steaming ACV worked for me! I came down with a bad cold two weeks ago and it turned into a sinus infection - sinus was bloated, mucus was thick and brownish, and pressure around the nose. Netipot and rest didn't make it better and I was getting desperate. Tried steaming vinegar (didn't have ACV) two nights ago and the next day felt a lot better. Did it again yesterday and now I'm almost completely well.

Thanks a lot to those who posted this remedy!

I had sinus surgery 3 years ago, and had not had a sinus infection since. On Thanksgiving woke up with a horrible sinus infection. I'd had symptoms for a couple weeks, like achiness, fatigue, Went to dr next day took 10 days of amoxicillin, did not help at all. Saw your article on ACV, could stand the taste, so tried steaming 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup ACV. Wow! End of lst day, I felt much better, but was coughing up and blowing my nose a lot.The next morning I felt like a new woman. I passed this on to my brother, his results were great also.

I have Irritable bowel syndrome (Spastic colon) and I get sinus infections at least once a year.

My doc always prescribes antibiotics for my SI's and every time I take them, I spend too much time in the bathroom. I recently came across your site and tried the ACV for my sinus infection:

I am using three-four drops of ACV, 1/2 tsp of baking soda (to take the edge off of the ACV) and warm water in my neti pot. I do this three times a day and I am planning to do this for five days.

The first day was harsh, but the second day of treatments was less harsh. I am now on my third day of treatments. I am not a 100% better, but I am feeling more better than I did before when I was on antibiotics. This is more effective and faster than antibiotics. I plan to do the ACV health drink after my SI's is over with. Thanks for this helpful information, You saved me a trip to the doctor, lots of bathroom time and some money. Thanks again.

Thanks for this advice! I only added 6 drops of apple cider vinegar to a nasal rinse of warm distilled water the first time and it did sting a little. The next time, I added 6 drops to the rinse with a saline packet and it was AMAZING! No pain at all, drained well, and I am much less congested! I also started to drink a diluted ACV tonic of warm tap water with 1/2 tsp 2x a day. Had severe congestion for two weeks and took pseudophedrine and decongestant spray constantly. I was going to give in and go to the doctor for antibiotics but am so glad I tried this instead. It's only been 24 hours and I feel much better. Will also try a few drops of melted coconut oil in the nostrils since people on here say that is an amazing cure as well. Thanks for the posts everyone!!
