Warning

Make sure you boil the tap water. It has bacteria in it and can be dangerous since the nasal cavity is so close to the brain.

I tried this because I have a severe post nasal drip and throughout the day 1 of my nostrils closes up. I put 2 tsp into 8 oz cup and at first it was okay, then all of a sudden lots and lots of mucus started pouring out of my nose thick/whitish/slimy then both my nosdrils clogged up. Before I did this I could breathe through at least 1 of my nosdrils, but now both are clogged with more and more mucus coming out. I won't be doing this again. Hopefully my sinuses will clear up. I can't believe that I did this, after weeks and weeks of trouble, I finally managed to open my sinuses with just a neti pot & solutions that comes with the neti pot, now I'm back to square one. Don't do it! It seems to have irritated my nose and more antihistamines got activated causing the nose to swell. VERY UPSET. :(((

I read these remedies and was excited to try to Purified water, hydro peroxide, apple cider vinegar, sea salt, baking soda which I used through my neti bot. It was a terrible experience. My jaw hurt so bad I could not close it, could not talk, I was in terrible pain, It took me to the floor. I called the dentist trying to talk with mouth open he said it was the sinus infection. I had sinus surgery for deviated septum years ago and this has helped a lot to lessen these infections and migraines, but this one's lasted a month, finally tried Sudafed and that's helping. Maybe my infection was just so bad it placed me in undue torture. I am scared to try this remedy again. Skip from Vancouver WA. 7-13-2012

Warning

BAD NEWS!!!! This was horrible!!! WARNING, STAY AWAY!!! I have used sea salt rinses for my sinuses many a time with my netty pot, and I love those, but I started getting a wicked sinus infection and thought I'd look up some other remedies to knock it out before it became full-blown. I had a root canal and then was in LA (all the smoke from those fires really killed me), and knew it would be a humdinger! Looking at this recipe, I thought maybe they meant teaspoons instead of tablespoons, because tablespoons seem really excessive. I'm glad I used teaspoons, because I might have passed out had I not. I followed the directions, let the mixture cool to room temperature and filled my netty pot and poured into my right nostril very slowly. Instantly I felt horrible pain in my sinuses, chest, throat and ear. I thought my ear was bleeding! I really did. I started jumping up and down and running cold water on my head because I was in so much pain. My dog and boyfriend came running to my aid, but I couldn't even find my words to tell him what was wrong. The worst part is the ear pain lasted for a full five minutes, my throat hurts worse, my ear still feels achy, and my sinuses feel just as bad as they did before!! I say stay far, far away from this deadly concoction. I'll stick to hot tea and 1c water to 1tsp sea salt in my netty pot from now on. That was the worst!

I tried the sinus infection cure using water, salt, and hydrogen peroxide. It felt great just after I was upside-down, but within ten minutes I was stuffed to the max again. May try it again tomorrow, but wonder how many times/day I can do it without hurting my sinuses.
