Success!!! Using the Upside Down Flooding of Sinuses

The "upsidedown method" is truly worthy of trying.
Early this summer I had even checked with my doctor who is an M.D. and a
pharmacist and was told the solution of peroxide, kosher salt, and baking
soda would be just fine to use on a regular basis and would do no harm.

However, one night, before I could get all the ingredients and the proper
container together, I tried the upside down method using Xlear (just a
product that I happened to have on hand). After suffering day and night for
over 4 years from severe and constant sinus irritation, with no relief
whatsoever from the several different prescription sprays the ENT had
prescribed over this 4 year period and the NAISDs I had been prescribed, the
upside down method has cleared up my sinuses for over 2 months now!!!!!!!!
And, amazingly, I've only had to use the upside down method 3x in this
entire timeframe. I had bought the Xlear some time ago and it had little
impact on helping my sinus condition until I tried it by using the upside
down method.......my belief would be that it was able to reach further into
the sinus area. It may be worth giving this a try for those who are
concerned about using peroxide.

The only other thing that had helped during this 4 year timeframe was when
the ENT injected the sinus area directly with Cortizone. While not fun, it
was the only relief I had ever gotten from the constant sinus irritation.
The ENT insisted that if this injection worked then it was allergy based.
However, after extensive testing, the Allergist assured me that the sinus
problem was not allergy based. All I know for sure is that nothing outside
the injections ever was effective in providing relief..........yet, now,
this simple, upside down method has worked!!!!!!!!!!

(And, as a side note to clarify, the Xlear product was just one of many, many, many products that I tried over the years seeking to find relief, and I have absolutely no connection whatsoever with the product or company.)

Great feedback! Congratulations on your success in treating your sinus infection. You now have another tool, in your sinus toolbox, to help you avoid, or treat, future sinus infections. Your ENT has probably, already and angrilly, ripped your name out of his patient book.

Xlear contains xylitol, which works by not allowing certain strains of bacteria to adhere to the sinus walls, and also prevents their growth. It sounds like a reasonable alternative for those who don't want to use peroxide.

I was once treated for a hospital resistant staph infection in my nose. I had to use a triple antibiotic salve every day for a few years. My ENT had the same thing, and also had to treat his with the salve.

I tried other antibacteria solutions, and finally found a homeopathic antibacterial liquid that killed my staph infection. I thought, perhaps, that I could tell my ENT, so that he could possibly also cure his staph infection.

I called the ENT's office, told the nurse that I had gotten rid of my staph infection, and thought that the ENT would call me back to find out what I had used. I called twice. He never called me back.

The bottom line: We both can no longer call our ENT our friend.

Re: Success!!! Using the Upside Down Flooding of Sinuses

Hydrogen Peroxide is great. It was the single biggest factor (aside from surgery to fix my deviated septum) in my recovery.

But I only use it when there is discolored discharge from the nose. Not just a little yellow, but suspicious chunks -obvious bacteria buildup. Then I add 3ml peroxide to my irrigation mix. Every time, my discharge goes back to clear within 12 hours.

Xyletol is great stuff as well -I swear by it. But it is expensive!

Re: Success!!! Using the Upside Down Flooding of Sinuses

The "GREAT" news here is that the "upside down sinus flooding method" works!!!!!!!! whether one uses the peroxide mixture or finds something like Xlear to use.

And, enormous APPLAUSE for the total DEVOTION and devoted postings of the upside down sinus flooding method. I never, ever, ever would have thought of using any solution with me then positioning my head upside down so that the solution could reach into the deep recesses of the infected/irritated sinus area!!!!!!!!!! (SMILE) Without that piece of information to go by, I would still be suffering because no ENT doctor ever mentioned anything but cortizone injections, prescriptions, sprays (which irritated my nasal passage and caused slight nose bleeds), or surgery.

One day, I would love to learn how putting one's head in the upside down postion came about!!!!!!!!!!!! Okay, on second thought, maybe we don't want to know the answer to that one!!!!!!! (SMILE)
