How I cured my sinus infection

I haven’t been getting sick very often. Actually I found as soon as I started bragging to people I hadn’t been sick in a year, that’s when it hit me. I had a pretty bad cold, which turned into a sinus infection. I think I had one last year at about the same time.


So I dislike antibiotics very much (More about antibiotics later). Now I know infections can be serious, and a visit to your doctor may be needed, but I got mine cleared up, and I was very surprised. I had never used a neti pot before, and really dislike the feeling of drowning, but decided to try it since I only hear amazing things. And it was totally worth it. But since I didn’t have time to use the neti pot at work, our specialist recommended I try a product called Xlear. This stuff is amazing. I also hate nasal spray, but if something works, it’s totally worth it. Now you can get neti pots at your local drug store, but more about the Xlear nose spray.


The only ingredients are purified water, xylitol, saline, and grapefruit seed extract (preservative). It isn’t addictive like your other drugstore brands. And I bet you’re wondering about the xylitol.

“Nasal Relief with Xylitol Nasal Spray

Our Nasal Spray is a combination of Xylitol and saline nasal spray that has shown to be effective in soothing and moisturizing the sinuses and nasal passages.

The Xlear Nasal Spray line contains Xylitol, purified water, salt, and grapefruit seed extract as a preservative. Using Xylitol nasal spray allows us to have a hyper-osmotic solution which helps pull moisture toward it. This action keeps the nasal passages and sinuses moist and clean for a much longer time than saline alone. Xylitol is the ingredient that sets our nasal spray apart from all of the other nasal sprays on the market.

The Xlear Nasal Spray line is all natural products, we do not use chemical antihistamines or decongestants that can leave your airways and sinuses dry. When your sinuses and airways are dry it leaves them vulnerable for increased infections.”

And also when it drips in the back of your throat, it just tastes like sugar 🙂

Here is their website. The xylitol they use is also used in the Spry gum, and there’s video’s to watch too.

I personally don’t use xylitol as a sweetener, but definitely love it in my gum instead of aspartame.
