I had this horrible sinus infection along with a lung infection. My pulmonary specialist put me on Amoxicillin and Allegra-D. This medication seemed to have made my symptoms of coughing and clogged sinuses worse. I was at the end of my rope until I stumbled on ACV. I am not big on mixing things and home remedies. I must admit I was skeptical about drinking the ACV and the right consistency. So I took a cup of ACV (Heinz brand from the local grocery store) and a cup of plain tap water and boiled it. I turned the fire off and closed my eyes and started to inhale it for approx. 5 minutes. I didn't try to overdo it nor did I become obsessive about it. And boy did it clear up all of the mucous. I continued to do this 2 times a day until it cleared. Thank you ACV. I was so tired of doctors making me sicker. I do believe that doing this with taking a vitamin C tablet has helped me tremendously. I hope this helps someone and I hope all of you feel better soon.

I have found that bringing an equal amount of Apple Cider Vinegar and water to boil, then inhaling the fumes as it starts to boil, quickly relieves sinus congestion & sinus infections. Just a warning though, close your eyes and mouth when doing this...the vapors are hard to deal with.
