  2. Sinus Infections

    As a veteran of years of inner ear infections (in my early years and requiring hospitalization) and sinus infections (two to three a year), I can sympathize. However, I am reluctant to share my cure since it is very inexpensive, it does not require a doctor and it works. I have shared this with many people and most blow it off. Those who have adopted it, experience the same relief I do. The key is to keep your sinuses moist. This is done using saline solution. I started using saline in 1992 and have not had a sinus infection since. You do have to experiment to find the right way to use saline. I use an over-the-counter spray bottle. However, the purchased spray has preservatives. I use the spray until the bottle is empty and then I reuse the bottle by making my own saline. Make sure you thoroughly clean the bottle and bring your saline solution to a boil. Since my solution has no preservative, I never go over two weeks between refills. You may have to experiment on the amount of salt used. I mix a little less than a tablespoon of table salt to two cups of water and bring it to a boil in the microwave. I reuse the bottle for about a year then throw it away and buy a new one. AS far as treatment, I put two to three drops in each nostril every night while laying in the bed before turning the light off. Once I put the drops in, I breathe deeply through my nostrils to help the moisture get up into my sinuses. If I feel sinus pressure building, I will also use the spray several times during the day until the pressure is relieved. My wife prefers using "Simply Saline" which is a saline dispensed from a pressurized can. Hence, do what works for you. If you research this on the internet, you will find many who recommend saline (Neti Pots and sinus irrigation, etc). The key is to keep your sinuses moist enough that they are able to properly drain. Sinus infections occur when the sinuses block up and the infection grows behind the blockage. Most doctors will tell you that this is a viable means of treatment, but will go no further in telling you how to do it. They cannot make money off this!! Please try this, I think you will find it easy, inexpensive and effective. John in Tennessee
