My sinuses are totally healed at present. I am getting ready to flood them with peroxide, baking soda and kosher salt, for the first time since Jan 13th, in order to clean out my nasal passages, the areas around my turbinates and hopefully some areas of my sinus cavities. To me it is great insurance against infection, and a great way to keep my sinuses functioning and clean.
I feel that it took my sinuses many months to totally heal, and the only way they could heal was if I kept infections away by occasional floodings. In two+ years I've done about 50 floodings, which averages out to about 2 per month.
But........ if I would come into contact with certain foods, or beer, my sinuses would plug up badly. In the past, if I would drink beer, my sinuses would plug up and I would get an infection. Now, if I drink beer, I just flood my sinuses the next day, or two. My sinuses are healed and don't infect as easily.
Why am I writing this? Well..... about your own sinus infections. When your sinuses are effected by an allergic reaction, or an irritant, there is much swelling. During that swelling, the sinuses are much more prone to infect.
So...... you need to, somehow, stay away from those chemicals, foods, dust, animal dander, clothing dyes, inks, smoke, etc., that might be increasing the swelling inside your nasal passages and cavities.
I am not a doctor, so I am just throwing out some suggestions that have helped me.
The "upside down sinus flooding", with peroxide, baking soda and kosher salt, has been a miracle for me. Somehow, someway, the anti-infective mixture got to the source of my infection problem. Were my infections within the turbinate areas, or nasal passages, or throat areas, which are easy places for the mixture to get to? Or, were my infections within the sinus cavities, which are much harder to reach? I don't know.
You mentioned that you were thinking of using a silver type of nasal irrigation. My only caution there is, I have only used the combination of peroxide, baking soda and kosher salt while doing a flooding. I don't know if adding some silver product to the mix would be safe.
I wish that I could tell you that the "upside down sinus flooding" would cure your sinus infection problems. I can't. I don't know where your infection problems originate. I can't guarantee that the solution wouldn't somehow get into your Eustachian Tubes. I don't know your particular physical makeup, and I am not a doctor. I use the flooding regularly, and for me it is very safe and effective.
I've also received emails and posts from others who have sent me very emotional "thank you" notes, after having their sinus miseries reduced or eliminated by using the "upside down sinus flooding."
If you decide to use the "upside down sinus flooding" technique, or if you have additional questions, kindly provide feedback.
Regards and good luck finding a cure for your sinus problems.
