I used food grade H202 3.5% knowing the product I thought the suggested ratio was too strong, so I only put 2 cap fulls in the neti pot, making it more 20 parts water to 1 part peroxide and it still burned like hell.

Ktgod, no foam needed. And no putting in nose needed - the nose is too delicate for that. Just keep squirting in your mouth and breathing it deep in. It'll eventually show results, G-d willing.

I used the hydrogen peroxide sprayed into mouth as per the video but did not get any foam. I also sprayed up the nose. The nose burned a little. does this go away?

I sprayed 3 sprays of about 1.5% FGHP into my mouth and inhaled it. That was about 20 min ago. I feel kind of woozy and pressure in the left side of my head, and some heaviness throughout my body, and my left eye was watering, but not much in my nose and mouth except a bit of fizzing in my mouth. Bit of heaviness in my lungs from the bubbles (had that before and not concerned), and my digestive system is starting to bubble, which it did the other night - that leads

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?

Thanks!

Rachel

I had a terrible sinus infection in the left side of my face. No mucus but pain up into my nose, down into my jawbone, teeth and neck. Couldn't sleep on that side or the pain would flare up for hours. I use hydrogen peroxide for a lot so I put it in water in the neti pot tonight ( couple of tablespoons?) Pain gone. Slept on that side all night with. No problems. Hardly any tenderness in face. Plan on doing this concoction for the next few days, few times a day. Eureka! Magic cure. Put some down in ears on qtip after reading this... mucus I didn't even know I had back of throat loosened up ( allergies).

I just did the hydrogen peroxide for sinus infections remedy -- it stings like hell. However, it did relieve my congestion. It remains to be seen whether it killed the infection. I'll do it 3-4 times daily over the next several days.

You're on the right track! Continue flushing! until the blood film is gone and ultimately it clears out in few days..

So today is my fifth day, I have felt no relief from congestion, and today when I blew my nose (before using the neti pot), I saw blood. I am using the neti pot, the included solution, and one teaspoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide, three times a day. should I stop or am I on the right track?

My hubs had a constant severe sinus infection for 3 months. He had a very bad headache. He went to 3 different doctors and 2 runs of antbx. with only 1-2 days of relief. Also a chiropractor, without results. Used flonase, and claritan daily, took 3 tumeric and fishmox daily. No relief. We began to wonder if he had a tumor.

He was desperate, so he tried 4 parts distilled water to 1 part 3% hydrogen peroxide, flushed sinus with neti pot and then let it bubble in nose for 5-10 minutes, (burns a little). Suddenly a profuse amount of mucous began to bubble out, flushed several times, and let it set afterwards each time, at which each time large amounts of thick mucous bubbled out of his sinus. All through the day, it would continue to pour profuse amounts of thick mucous.

This was finally the answer, Praise God some relief.

I heard that adding some salt to this hydrogen peroxide solution for sinus infections relieves the stinging. And it does.

Tulov, dilute the h2o2. It should work just as well but without the sting.

I leave it in for at least 10 mins each ear, pretty much until it stops fizzing. I use 50/50 6% HP and warm water in a small dish, dip a cotton ball or pad in it, lie down my side and drip the liquid into my ear(s), have a towel and paper towels handy. Watch Earth Clinic videos on Youtube while lying down to pass the time . ;)

What about using a Q-Tip dipping in Peroxide?

Hi- just wanted to comment about a sinus infection I had for over a year and had tried everything...literally. I put a few drops of 35% food grade HP & distilled water in one of those humidifiers that make the mist, and would breathe in through nasal and mouth- and within 3 days I was finally cured after suffering for a year.

but we are talking about 3% not 35%, the product is already @3%, so why the ratio 4:1 could be too concentrate?

VERY true: 4:1 will be too strong and burn. It'll leave your sinuses irritated, and you with a lot of discomfort. You may very likely get nose bleeds. Dilute at a higher ratio... the 10:1 sounds okay... I'd go higher.

I am highly allergic to cedar and elm pollen and living in Houston, does me no favors! For the past three weeks, the two pollen's have wreaked havoc on my sinuses, which in turn, turned into a nasty sinus infection. I have been getting chills on and off, waking up every morning about 12:30 blowing my nose and hacking. I could smell and taste infection and was hacking up and blowing thick green stuff. I wouldn't be able to fall back to sleep until about 4ish. I have to get up at 5:30 for work. I have been feeling sick, tired and cranky. All of these years that I thought that it was my lungs giving me problems, but I think it has been chronic sinus infections! I don't have insurance, so going to the doctor to get antibiotics is out of the question as I am on a super tight budget.

I decided to come here and saw the Hydrogen peroxide cure and decided to take a shot in the dark.

I have a plastic neti pot. I know that table salt is a no-no, but it's what I had available, so that is what I used.

I used 1/4 teaspoon of salt and two teaspoons of hydrogen Peroxide in warm distilled water and cleaned out each nostril.

I did that when I got home from work and did it again before I went to bed. I also did it this morning before work.

The "sick infected" feeling that I had along with the chills; GONE! I slept all night! I could taste my food again and could smell again which told me that my husband had lied to me about smoking in the house, because I smelled it! He got an earful! LOL!

I will do this again when I get home from work. I am in awe of this inexpensive and highly effective treatment! For about $1.00, I am almost 100%, where a visit to the doctor along with scripts, would have cost me about $400 or more.

After reading posts about peroxide for sinus infections, I decided to give peroxide a try. After putting a couple of drops of 3% in each nostril I felt immediate relief from the throbbing pain in my face. The peroxide though had a burning sensation for about a few seconds it nevertheless did the job.

I used hydrogen peroxide to clean my nose but I didnt dilute it and now I can't smell is this normal. I did it before reading this website I didnt know you had to dilute it.

Dear people, before you make an affirmation please read some more materials about the subject. Quote : the hydrogen peroxide do not wash the bad and good bacteria, why so?? because good bacteria thrive when is plenty oxygen and bad one thrive when your body has less oxygen than 60%.

Hydrogen peroxide should be diluted at least 10-20 times its normal (3%) strength. A 4:1 dilution as stated here will burn your nasal mucosa severely and delay healing from the sinus infection. There is no good medical evidence for its use in the nasal sinuses. I am a doctor who has tried hydrogen peroxide and suffered mucosal damage with a 4:1 dilution with water.
