Yea for the grapefruit seed extract. I've been having a disgusting nasal odor, almost like poop or rubbish, that was so bad that I dreaded going out in public because people could smell it even if they weren't right next to me. Riding in cars was torture for me and others because the smell would fill up the car within 1 minute. Anyway I tried alot of things- antibiotics, nose creams, irrigating my nasal passages with water and combining some things: tea tree oil/acv/salt/baking soda/iodine. Nothing worked. I assume I had an infection up there even though I had no real pain or discomfort, just post nasal drip and that odor that even I couldnt stand. Anyway as a last resort I ordered GSE, it arrived at work this morning and I went to the bathroom immediately to irrigate my sinuses with it (a few drops in a cup of water) and the relief seemed almost immediate- the people in my office stopped coughing and sniffing (the odor was that bad! ) and I can't smell it anymore. My nose has been running the whole day which is a good thing because all that yuck is coming out. I'm blowing my nose every 30 seconds. I plan to do this irrigation for a full week to make sure no bacteria/fungi survive then maybe I'll irrigate with probiotic powder for another week to replace the good bacteria. As a side note, I'm also on an anti-candida diet, and on the following supplements: quercitin, vitamin C, fish oil, fulvic acid and s salivarius probiotics. So hopefully the fungus/bad bacteria won't ever have a change to grow back. But I never got relief from the nose odor until GSE. (If the nose odor comes back I will come back to report, otherwise assume that the GSE nailed it. )Now if someone could tell me a cure that works for bad breath from the MOUTH, I'd be the happiest person alive!
Grapefruit seed extract nasal wash cured sinus infection
On sign of a sinus infection, I did a 2 cup nasal cleanse (with the nasal syringe) using 2 cups of water, 1/2 tsp salt and 8 drops grapefruit seed extract. I experienced an immediate 'stuffing up' but by morning was symptom free. I repeated cleanse before I went to work and have had no problems since! Worked great!
