I just used 1/2 tsp ACV with about 8 oz of warm water in neti and omg it burned and now even 2 hours later I can barely breathe through my nose because I'm so congested from it, wondering did anyone else have this reaction?

I did the same thing with the netti pot and my head felt like it was going to explode and I couldn't breathe through my nose. I did a saline rinse immediately to dilute any damage the acid may have caused to my sinus passages. I have been using warm compresses to alleviate the pain and am still very plugged in my nose. Please warn people not to use the netti pot for this

I had the same experience before with the nasal passages reaction during a previous sinus infection.

The problem was not the vinegar/Neti pot process. I had used way too much vinegar. I just did it again, using only 4-6 DROPS of vinegar. The thick nasal mucus immediately started to drain; and it went from thick white/slightly yellow tint to clear. And my breathing is clear and my sense of smell is working again.

FYI, when blowing your nose, pinch/press close one side and blow the other. Then do the same on the other side. Do not blow hard, it will force infectious agent into the ear canal, and create another problem. Instead inhale through an open mouth and huff blow in a 1,2,3 pattern until the 1 nasal side is cleared and do the same on the other side.

I added 1 tsp of ACV to my neti pot and did this twice on Saturday. I noticed that I felt dizzy for a few seconds afterward but then I was ok and sinus congestion was clear. But on Sunday I began having severe dizziness - like the room was spinning - and it's now Monday morning and it hasn't gone away. Not sure but I think it must have been the ACV added to my neti pot rinse. Don't know why it took 18 hours for this severe dizziness to show up but I know that has to be it.

I'm about to do a regular saline neti pot rinse to see if it can flush away any residue that may still be there lingering. I'll post a follow up. But please be very careful about adding anything to a sinus rinse!

I added 1 tsp per 1 cup of water and it was so strong that I had to stop, it hurt so bad. The pain didnt completely go away for a few hours. It was awful!

You may have used a bit too much of the ACV. I find it easier, and less painful, to put just the tiniest amount in a glass of warm filtered water and sea-salt, and snort it. I cured my sinus infection in 3 days. I also gargled with the same solution, and did both 4-5 times each day.

Also make sure you're NOT using tap water. This is very dangerous due to all the "crap" in tap water. Only use filtered or preferably distilled water.

I had terrible results with the neti pot. I will never use them again. It seemed to make my sinus issues worse every time I used them. I use drops into each nostril with an eye dropper. I use a product which is essentially a mineral/water mixture that is supposed to help with restoring mucus linings in the body. Also will try salt water with Baking soda today. My infections are from exposure to toxins when I was younger working with the fumes from glue products that I was using with my work.

I did the act nasal rinse using the Neil med bottle and it was excruciatingly painful. Then my nose ran tons of clear mucous changing to darker and I started to feel better but my nose just ran. Then about two hours later extreme sinus pain. I had followed up with a saline rinse twice that night and steamed over hot water. The pain in sinus was extreme. My cheeks were bright red. So I don't know if it was a reaction to acv. Or

What you described would indicate that you used too strong of a concentration..

If you're going to do the neti pot, versus the Palm snort method, I would suggest that you start by ONLY using 5 drops of ACV (1/20 teaspoon) to 8oz of water.. then increase from there if no problems and a stronger concentration is desired/required.

That does not sound good. I know I've used it by steaming it in a pot mixed with water and it can burn but I think it is also from the intense heat.

It may not have been the acv, but more likely that you moved the infection into your ear canal, which is closely linked to our sense of balance. Infections in the inner ear and head often create pressure which upsets the nerves that give us our sense of balance and result in dizzying spinning sensation. I get dizzy every time I am coming down with a certain virus because it is lodged near my ear canals.

I was very skeptical. However, the ACV rinse worked for my sinus infection.

I used the rinse three time a day. On the morning of the day, after I began using the rinse, I felt better. I improved each day for six days. The rinse worked for me faster than the antibiotics I have been prescribed the last few years.

The rinse was harsh the first few days in the sense that it burned. I read that the more the rinse hurts, the worse my infection was, so I stayed with it. Now, six days later the discomfort is no worse than that I experienced with a saline rinse.

Thanks to all of you who posted your positive experiences with the rinse, which motivated me to give it a try despite my great skepticism.

I am a believer now. Thanks.

I'm starting to feel the early symptoms of a sinus infection. Upper teeth hurt, pain in the face, cheekbone hurts, etc. I know how bad these can get so I just boiled some water and added ACV (probably a half cup), hung my head over the pot with a towel over my head and let it do its stuff. Then I readied my Neti Pot and added 1 teaspoon of ACV to it. Blew my nose a couple of times and out comes the yellow stuff. I have chronic postnasal drip and have found that the ONLY thing that helps is to put ACV in the Neti Pot - usually only half a teaspoon, but if I'm fighting off a sinus infection I'll use more. I've used tea tree oil in the neti but I have pets and don't wanna use that stuff anywhere near them and actually it doesn't work as well as the ACV. This stuff is great!

Apple cider vinegar is a great alternative to antibiotics. I start to down it as soon as I get the signs of a cold and it has helped a lot steering away sinus infections. Its seems like to me I have built up a tolerance to it over time but it is possible my sinuses have become more susceptible to infection. This combined with a saline rinse seems to do the trick. I would also mention that sinus infections are partially mental, try not to focus on your sinuses and try to not over treat them either, that could make them worse.

I recently started using Oregano Oil, or Oil of Oregano as it is also referred to and this also has some excellent anti antibacterial properties, it may be my new go to for Sinus infections, only problem is that it is EXPENSIVE! Good luck everyone!

I have been sick off and on since November - I am allergic to antibiotics (all families) so I can't take anything - OTC didn't work. In desperation I tried 1 cup of apple cider vinegar mixed with 1 cup of water - brought to a steam - inhaled - I can't believe how much better I feel already. I will continue this regime until I feel completely relieved and the mucous is clear. The caution of closing your eyes and mouth is a good one to take - it does sting the back of your throat and makes you cough.

I am looking forward to reading through the pages and pages of natural remedies! I've been on antibiotics (Azithromycin) for the last two years and can tell I'm becoming immune.

I suffered with sinusitis and bronchitis my entire life and was finally diagnosed with PCD. My cilia do not work and my sinuses and lungs have no way of filtering out impurities. PCD is genetic and very rare so there is very little info on how to treat. So far, Zpack is the only thing that has shown to reduce inflammation in people with PCD, thereby producing less mucous. There's no cure.

The information in this article and the comments are priceless, perhaps lifesaving in my case. I will definitely give ACV a try and try going gluten-free as well. I've noticed I am worse after having ice cream, so I've already limited dairy products.

Thanks so much!

Yes I had trouble finding some in major supermarkets and Aspall Cyder Vinegar (Organic) was the only one I could find.

I suffer from sinusitis and I have definitely noticed an improvement. This stuff acts like an anti-biotic without the horrible side effects!

I took 2 tea spoons, mixed with apple squash and warm water for a few days and noticed about 15 mins after taking it, I started to sneeze and then cleared my nose of horrible stuff and felt so much better.

Hi, I am a doctor and I suffer from chronic sinusitis because I was heavy smoker which had damaged my cilia. You should avoid dairy products which cause body secretions to be thick and become a nidus for Bacterial infection.

I'm writing this review because I can't believe how well ACV worked for my sinus infection. I woke up feeling awful and I knew that my sinus infection had officially moved up to the next level because I had a fever. I really didn't want to take antibiotics because my ENT told me that he never treats sinus infections with antibiotics and plus I know how bad for you they are. Desperate for some relief and knowing that my doctor didn't have anything till next week, I looked up some natural remedies on Earth Clinic.

After reading I decided to try ACV. Let me just tell you that my head had been pounding for 2 days and I had this awful mucus in the back of my throat constantly. I considered going to the ER, but didn't. I put about 1 teaspoon of ACV in my neti pot with warm water and did the nasal rinse.

After that I put 3 tablespoons of ACV in 2 cups of water and some honey and warmed it. It was hard to drink but I drank it.

I also got a heating pad and I put it all over my head, neck, and temples at high heat for about an hour just rotating it.

When I woke up in the morning to my surprise my headache was completely gone. UNFREAKING BELIEVABLE!!!! Wow, I am so thankful for this site! So happy!! This is amazing and it works!!!

I use to get sinusitis every 6 months when I lived in New York, they were so bad I would have to stay in bed due to dizziness.I always took antibiotics, I would loose my voice, run a fever, felt like I had the flu with a massive headache.Since I moved to Florida 4 years ago I have been very fortunate to have had only 3 sinus infections.I recently just got another one 8 days ago, this is a bad one, same symptoms as I had in New York.

My question is I just started reading about Apple Cider Vinger..I took it day 6 of the infection with hot water and honey twice a day.. will it help me that far into the infection and should I do this on a daily basis to help prevent future sinus infections?

Thank you, Nancy

I woke up on Friday with a sinus "drip" at the back of my throat making it feel kinda scratchy. By Wednesday I had a raging sinus infection complete with tremendous pressure & pain and a fever. One of the worst ever! Checked out EC & took 2 Tbs Apple Cider Vinegar in 8oz hot water with 1 heaping tsp raw honey around 1:00 in the afternoon I also did the Apple Cider Vinegar rinse in the neti pot, then repeated at about 8pm went to bed. Woke up the next morning feeling better and repeated said procedure. By 9:30 am Thursday I was feeling 90% better but continued the entire routine for an additional 48 hrs.

I normally don't leave comments on anything but I had to this time. I've suffered from sinus infections for most of my life (30 yo female) and have had sinus surgery, etc. I felt one coming on and had a raging infection two days ago. I began using my Neti pot, as I'm trying to avoid antibiotics unless they're absolutely necessary. The next morning I found this post and starting drinking ACV in water and already I feel an incredible difference. The infection is not quite gone but I am continuing to Neti, sip the tonic, and drink tea my husband has made me from our garden. I'm amazed!

I have been suffering from sinuses infections for years now. Antibiotics no longer work for me. Hellllp!!! My nose isn't even stuffy, but the post nasal drip (I assume that's what it is) is causing me to have a constant feeling of something being in my throat. I can clear it, but it comes back within seconds. It actually makes me feel anxious. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. There are so many natural remedies, I don't know where to begin. Thanks.

Sometimes what feels like sinus drainage is actually acid reflux coming up in to your throat. Check some remedies for reflux. If that solved the problem, then you are having reflux, not sinus drainage. Or you could be having both. Lionel Richie, the singer with the Commodores, started having drainage. He went to numerous doctors who were treating him for sinus and ear infections, one surgeon even did sinus surgery on him. He still was not getting better. Finally he was put in the hospital for something gastrointestinal related, he was having some kind of problems that made him really sick, and found out what had been making him sick all along was reflux. After hearing that, I no longer trust doctors to come to the right conclusion any more.

Hello Anne, I have only just found out that sinus problems can be caused by acid reflux.

I used to get throat problems where I tried to clear it like you and it just comes back time after time. I also used to get anxiety attacks through it until my GP told me it was acid reflux and prescribed omeprazole. I am now using silicolgel before meals as this coats the stomach lining and this seems to work better. Hope this helps.

Mmsg, I've been having a dairy free diet since almost a year back, still got that constant feeling of something in my throat (mucus). I suspect it's my allergies (first diagnosed 17 years ago) since it worsens some months.

Anne, I've found ACV being really helpful with this problem! It helps instantly. I've been drinking it (2 tsp ACV in 2,5 dl/8 oz water) 2-3 times a day since yesterday. Hopefully you'll do with just 1 time a day, I need to repeat it still. I've read some ppl gargle it and then swallow, trying that out at the moment so no tips/own experience there yet.

Hopefully, in time, my allergies (am bothered by it 10 months a year) will get better. At the moment (now in my worst allergy period) I still need antihistamine along with the ACV though. So, I'm better but not cured!

Hi everybody, I just thought I'd throw this into the mix. I also had very bad sinuses, until I was diagnosed with cancer, and not wanting to go down the road of conventional treatment, I found a natural practitioner/ bio dentist, had root canal and amalgams removed and was put on a ketogenic style diet (low carb high fat and protein and no grains) I've been clear for three years now and one of the unexpected side effects is that I'm completely cured of my sinus allergies. You see, grains were a big problem for me, and is for many of us without realising it. If this is of any interest to anyone, there are some very good movies about the truth of wheat, how it's been genetically modified and grown and how it's having detrimental effects on our health. Well I really hope this will be of some help to someone out there, allergies really are a misery.

Try Oil Pulling too. I have had hayfever and taken antihistamines my whole life, but I started oil pulling 2.5 years ago and my allergies are so much better than they used to be. I started with 2 times per day and now just do it once per day. You get 2 tsp or so of any organic oil (I like to use raw sesame or coconut oil) and swish it around in your mouth for 10-20 minutes. Then spit it out on the ground or in the trash so it doesn't ruin your drain. Never swallow it. It apparently pulls a bunch of bacteria from your mouth which basically frees up your body from a lot of toxins that those bad bacteria can produce. The main reason I love it is that it causes my sinuses to clear out quite a bit. The combination of the oil pulling basically lowering the load of toxins my body has to deal with, plus the mucous clearing out, seems to have made my allergies much better. I never take anti-histamines now. My bad days now are almost like my good days before. I have also found that a no grain or low grain, low sugar diet makes a huge difference for my allergies. Another huge help during allergy season is stinging nettle, and quercitin (which is a natural antioxidant that acts like an anti-histamine). I will have to try the ACV thing too.

I have to say, I tried both TX, the steam and the drink. I used ACV 1/2 Cup mixed with 1/2 filtered water- 5 min steam total of 2 treatments 1 day apart. It helped me with the headache, but still have a weak cough non-productive. Did not help with phelgm or mucus release, I supposed I don't have that much left in me. I switched to drinking in 2 TBSP ACV+ 1 tsp manuka honey at room temp. or warm filtered water. I have been drinking for 2 days, once daily.. and today feeling much better, no headache, no blowing my nose at all, only still the weak occasional non-productive cough and feeling some small amount of "phlegm" literally stucked in the upper lungs that does not move with coughing. Will keep on drinking this stuff, I am a firm believer in ACV beneficial properties.

ACV for sinus infection: It does work but it's not easy. I find that I can eliminate a sinus infection using ACV mixed with water in a 3 to 5 days if I drink it diluted throughout the day. It does make my stomach upset because it is so acidic but without a doubt it works.

I'm going to try using the ACV capsules and see if they make me feel less sick on the stomach because I can barely stand it long enough for the sinus infection to begin to retreat.

Dear R P Sharma,

Regarding your long term sinus infection:

Try garlic with some honey. Crush one clove of garlic and mix it with honey and take it on a spoon. We have used this three to four times a day for a week for a serious infection and it worked well.

You might try putting a drop or two of castor oil into each nostril (Lay on your back and let the oil get deep into your sinuses) once or twice a day. (If you have polyps, I would do this for at least a month.)

Avoid all dairy products until you are better.

You could try Earth Clinic's wonderful cure for sinus infections. It has helped my son and me greatly in the past.

Hydrogen Peroxide for Sinus Infections

Try gargling salt water a few times a day as well - 1/4 teaspoon salt in 1 ounce very warm water.

I hope you feel better soon!

Hi Mama to Many - Tennessee. I have read quite a bit on the internet as I too suffer from Sinusitis almost all year round. About a year ago I had Surgery to remove Nasal Polyps, straighten a bent Septum and generally try to clear my Nasal passages as I couldn't breathe through my nose - Septoplasty/Ethmoidectomy/Antrostomy – Intranasal /Turbinectomy - Left and Right for all procedures other than the Septoplasty. NASTY OPERATION - HURTS LIKE HELL AFTER, but at least I can now breathe through my nose. PROBLEM - I HAVE NO SMELL AT ALL, and now very little taste. Smell and Taste both relate to the OLFACTORY receptors and sensory which is around the bridge of the nose and is responsible for Smell and Taste. No Smell, usually very little Taste as Smell is the major component of Taste. I read your comments on Hydrogen Peroxide and came upon a PRINCETON UNIVERSITY STUDY on the website LIVESTRONG that states DO NOT USE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE as a Nasal irrigation as it can cause major damage I.e.

Aspiration Pneumonia

Cellular Reaction

Hydrogen peroxide interacts with the enzyme catalase, releasing water and oxygen. The release of water and hydrogen constitutes the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide. 1 cc of 3 percent hydrogen peroxide releases 10 ml of oxygen. If the rate of oxygen release exceeds the maximum solubility in the blood, venous embolism occurs. It is conceivable that chronic use of 3 percent hydrogen peroxide for nasal irrigation can yield a risk of chronic aspiration, and resultant venous embolism. Chronic lung exposure can cause partial or complete collapse of the lung.

I am again at the stage of almost despair as a world without sense of smell and taste combined with horrible thick mucous build up in the Sinuses is not a nice thing to live with.

I currently use a self made Nasal Spray in my attempt to keep any further Nasal Polys from forming. It contains a drop of Organic Tea Tree Essential Oil combined with about 8 drops of Lemna Minor and Calcarea PhosphoricaI (homeopathic drops) combined with Distilled water in a 25ml Nasal Spray container. I use this daily, which momentarily helps to clear a little of the thick Orange coloured Mucus build up (not Yellow or Green).

Unfortunately the thick Orangy coloured Mucus build up returns quite quickly so I will try the ACV tonic for ingestion and also for use with a Neti Pot combined with Sea Salt to see if in fact it helps with the Sinuses and post the results.

I've been dealing with a sinus infection for a week or more. Haven't had one in years, but I'd also not been eating any wheat, sugar, or much dairy, and then I did, and got sick. Turned into a sinus infection. Saline helped but didn't give the relief that the Apple Cider vinegar has. It's also seeming to dry out all the copious mucus. I think I might be able to work out tonight without bursting into tears because of the head/sinus pain. Hanging upside down during circus training, and sinus infections don't mix! If I totally get rid of this, I'll try to post my good results.

Apple cider vinegar for sinus infections: Yes it works ... you can do ACV with some honey and it slowly clears you out. Just be patient and it works. I get lots of sinus infections so it was great to not have to take antibiotics. Suggest you also do the Neti pot with the salt as that clears out the existing congestion and ACV thins out the new stuff.

Apple cider vinegar for sinus infections works very well because it alkalizes pH in such a big way. I used to get sinus infections about 4 times a year thanks to the air quality in LA. Now I get one only if I've caught a virus, so about once a year. I attribute that to drinking ACV in water at least once a day. I keep a bottle hidden under my desk in the office for those Santa Ana windy days that really kick up my sinus inflammation!

I have been using apple cider vinegar for allergies and sinus infections for 30 years now. I read about it in DC Jarvis' book Folk Medicine a long time ago and always have a bottle on hand.
