This
is an old, old treatment that actually makes sense from a medicla
perspective.

Dust and pollen,
mold, etc. cling to our mucous membranes causing
inflammation.

So you need to
make a solution of 0.9 grams sodium chloride in water. It's just
barely salty enough to taste--it's exactly as salty as your blood,
or "isotonic."

Heat the salt
water up until it is 98.6 degrees.

You can use a neti
pot, nut I like to use a 600 cc syring. Tilt your head back and
slowly fill your nostril until waster starts coming out the other
nostril.

You can shake your
head around or just keep your head back for a few moments. Then lan
over the sink and blow. YOu will be amazed at the shit and
corruption that comes out. Repeat with the other
nostril.

Repeat until just
clear water comes out.

Do that twice a
day.

It reall,,really
works.

I
tried the neti pot and then I tried something more powerful which
works like the Grossan irrigator (water impulses by a machine).
Water irrigation goes over the top of the nose and just comes back
over it. It doesnt (and cannot) go into any real sinus cavities -
frontal, maxillary, ethmoid, sphenoid.

Its temporary
relief that goes away in an hour for me. Some nights have been
better.

But, now I've
gotten my sinus surgery scheduled in about 3 months so yea, I'm
finally going to do it. The doctor said I had one sinus growing
inside another, how's that. I hope I dont lose all my hair until
then. Its thinning out.

So yup, neti pots
are pretty much superficial and dont work for serious sinus
problems. Maybe they're good for people who are already healthy.
Its a good thing in any case but I think in most cases,
temporary.

People say they
are great but if they only travel over the top of the nose and dont
go into any sinuses, this is not effective.

A more effective
method which I've tried: steam inhalation. Since its in gaseous
form, it would go into sinus cavities. But for serious sinus
problems even steam hasnt helped me.

I have a personal
steamer which is a pain to use. The best thing if it existed, would
be a steam machine which forces steam with pressure at the right
temperature. Maybe mixing things into it would help: eucalypstus
oil and other stuff I'm forgetting.

Are you talking
about nose hair?

Guest, I really didn't feel I had anything to contribut to this
thread until your last post. When my sister in law was pregnant
with my niece she developed sinus trouble. Her OB/GYN told her to
heat some vodka in a deep pan until it started boiling then take it
off the stove, make a tent with a bath towel and inhale the
vapors.

I have done this
and you can actually feel the sinuses "cracking" and there is a
little burn as you feel stuff letting loose. Be close to a sink or
something and have tissues ready. It should buy you some relief
until surgery.

When
the vodka cools, if you don't want to drink it, you can sprinkle it
on old potpourri, to revive the scent. This really works, too. I've
tried it.

work.

Sounds like your
surgery is either during xmas or inthe new year? What specifically
will they be doing to you? Is your sense of smell affected by your
condition?

Is your surgeon
comfident that you'll get the desired results from surgery? Wishing
you good fortune for some great results then.

A new leash on
life. I'll bet you can't wait for this to pass. What is the
expected recovery time post sugery?

Yea
around Christmas, nice gift for me, a scalpel, anathesia and a new
nose. Better than turtle neck sweaters.

What they'll be
doing to me specifically - I dont know. I forgot to ask him. I
should have written down questions but my zombie state of mind
prevents me from thinking about anything. But I trust them, they're
the best in the nation for ear nose and throat.

Sense of smell
yea, its effected.

I wish i had asked
him that:

>> Is your
surgeon comfident that you'll get the desired results from
surgery?

I probably did and
he might have said that they'll do their best and the rates of
recovering are high (the standard 'positive' talk). The fact is
that some people have to keep going back and I told him that. At
this point I dont have any other option.

I'll have to start
making a list of questions. They're sending something in the mail
about the surgery so after I read it I'll start writing questions
down.

Yea, I cant wait
for this to pass, I cant wait for the surgery. The expected
recovery time I think, a couple of weeks - 1 to 2, before I go to
work. I have holidays so I wont have to take time off from
work.

Mostly worried
about my hair, its already thinning and I dont know how bad it will
get before its all fixed. I can do with living like a zombie but
any permanent damage to hair.

I guess I'll just
wait. Its about two months away.

Still cant believe
I used to feel like a zombie and blamed it on depression and stuff.
Its like getting in a car wreck, getting out and looking back at
your trashed car and body. :((.

The medicine
routine is going to finish soon so I'll be back to the
medicine-less state. Lets see how it goes.

Hi
Guest,

What a relief to
find a "reason" eh? I think that in of itself is what drives most
people batty. Once we figure out WHAT is going on, then the healing
can begin. Our energy changes.

Since I was giving
metaphysical reasons for my own health issues on the other thread,
would you like to hear what Louise Hay says about Sinus'? I won't
post it unless you're interested.

Either way, good
luck with your surgery.

Bangles - yes, it's normal for that to happen until you get the
hang of it. You have to tilt your head "just so"...

Hep -
congrats on your good news from the doc.

I'd like to hear
what Louise has to say. I'll bet it's stress related.
