I am having sinus problems and was wondering if anyone has ever used any of the products from sinuswars and how successful were the products in treating your sinuses. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
I believe I have Post Nasal Drip and ordered SinusWars3 a couple of days ago after looking around for an effective solution. I should receive my order in a few days but in the meantime I've booked an appointment with a private consultant for tomorrow morning to try and find out what is causing my problems. I'm not looking forward to the inevitable endoscopy but anything is better than sleepless nights due to constantly clearing my nose & also having my friends & family indicate that I have bad breath! I currently use BreatheRight nasal strips at night to help increase airflow (they work very well), a saline nasal spray (helps moisten the nose but doesn't get to the back where the main problems seem to be, I think the spray needs to be a finer mist - I've ordered Xlear sprays which should be here by Saturday, hopefully they'll help) and also my doc put me on Beconase (nasal steroid spray) a few weeks ago but seems to help a bit.
I'll tell you what the consultant says tomorrow & keep you updated on the results with the SinusWars stuff when it arrives. I'm dubious to say the least but it's all over the web and I can only find one testimony against it, although that was from 3 or so years ago and the thread filtered out before any kind of positive results were posted by the guy who tried the SinusWars treatment.
Maybe their "special operatives" got to him
Well, I had my consultation - & no endoscopy thankfully! I'm going for a CT scan next week to check the state of my sinuses but in the meantime the consultant ENT surgeon recommended flushing my sinuses with the following mix - and beware, it isn't confortable - 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon sodium bicarbonate (without yeast) and 1 teaspoon of sugar to help the taste (which I didn't use) mixed in a pint of water. Pour some in a cupped palm... and inhale through your nose. It gets further in than the nasal spray I currently use. He also prescribed me a stronger nasal steroid and gave me the option of having surgery to straighten my septum and maybe remove some tissue to open my nasal / sinus passages. CT scan will show what can be done. Anyway, getting to the point - SinusWars - I paid the premium international shipping charge so it had better get here by tomorrow.
2-4 days eh, let's see.
SinusWars3 received 45 mins ago, just finished swallowing the first pill (dissolves under tongue, must be held in the mouth for 10 mins before swallowing) - I'll report back if there's any change with my sinuses over the next few days.
Day 3: Lots of gunk being shifted out of my nose today which is good. Unusual though, maybe the saline/bicarbonate washes & increased water intake is working - maybe it's the SinusWars. Either way, it's good because being unable to shift the mucus has been my main problem. I can breathe much better through my nose too, I'm not having to force air through my nostrils and I feel much calmer. Not getting my hopes up yet (miracle solutions are mostly unheard of) but I'm optimistic. My surgery, booked for the 20th March,

I use the NeilMed sinus rinse- it has a bottle and little packets of stuff that you dissolve in warm water for the rinse. The ENT also gave the recipe for salt/baking soda that is mentioned above, but I am too lazy and just bought more premeasured packets. Anyway, it works really well, and is very easy to use.
I just use pure saline solution periodically throught out the day it help when I was congested and helps relieves cold temperature and sinus driness headaches as well.. not familiar with the SinusWars products at all.
ENT specialists are the way to go. I'm really not sure this SinusWars stuff ( I won't call it crap yet, it deserves a fair chance ) is working or will work but I've increased my dosage from one tablet twice a day to two tablets twice a day. I'm don't really know how scrapings of oyster shells mixed with other weird concoctions is going to affect the cilia in my nose in a particular way, but if I knew the secrets of such things then I would be coining it too. By the way, I posted a link to the personal experiences of one sinus-problem sufferer who opted for surgery - My ENT specialist also received the link and told me it was complete rubbish, and if any procedure was even remotely like that it would have been discontinued years ago. So... there we go.
I'll bet your ENT didn't tell you the Mayo Clinic found over 90% of sinus suffers who had surgery were coming back in for repeated surgeries, many numerous times. Most of the time surgery is not a final cure either but they won't tell you that. I've personally known a number of people who have had surgery and yes they had to have many more surgeries because it didn't work or their polyps kept coming back. You have to remember natural remedies are not drugs and work with the body to heal itself. Most of the time they take many weeks and even many months to work. Most people think they are like drugs. You take a few pills and your cured. Not so.
