I am going to show you several effective sinus protocols and recipes to reduce; inflammation, soft and hard mucus, parasites, allergies, mold, particulates in the sinus and support detoxification of heavy metals and other contaminants most of us breathe in daily.

You may be one of the millions of people who suffer daily with miserable sinus complaints such as facial pain, drainage, pressure, dryness, infection, pain and inflammation. If you have never tried to clean and detox your sinus cavities, these recipes will sure be an exciting adventure for you.

I will show you how I make several effective recipes for supporting the removal of mild sinus infections, detoxification, dry sinus, blockage and how I use the Neti Pot correctly into the 4 different nasal passages, or cavities, located in the front of the face. I will also show you how you can make a homemade neti pot with a plastic water bottle.

Usually, when people get a cold or the flu, mucus and a stuffy nose will accompany your ache joints, sore throat, headache and shortness of breath. The nasal passages are very important to keep clean, detoxify and sanitize on a maintenance schedule at least 3-4 times a year.

If you live in the city and are in any type of toxic particulate air pollution consistently, you know that your sinus cavities are probably due for a good detoxing and cleaning.

Many people are infected with tiny particles of dirty dust and petrochemical particulates from a variety of combustion engines, industry and various products that off-gasses into the air we breathe.

Even when sweeping the dusty floor in the garage the dust is mixed with insect, mice/rat urine and feces and when inhaled, not only into the lungs, but the excrement also gets lodged deep into the sinus cavities causing the start of toxic sinuses and allergy symptoms.

You will have to practice the neti pot a few times to learn how to perform this therapy correctly and efficiently. If you have never used a neti pot before, it is a good idea to try just distilled warm water the first few times to make sure that you can run the liquid into one nostril, and get it to come out the other nostril without gagging.

Once you get a hang of the water going into the different parts of the sinus cavities, this therapy will be much easier and effective to perform. Then you are ready for some other more complex irrigation recipes, as I will show you in part 2 of this video course.

These simple and all natural neti pot recipes are powerful remedies to destroy colonies of bad bugs like anaerobic bacteria, mold, yeast and parasites that all have a tendency to “hangout” and colonize in the sinus cavities.

I have personally used these recipes for 20 years, and have shown thousands of patients how to do this therapy at home, as their own personal sinus therapy. These remedies are safe and effective for most sinus conditions such as bacterial infections, allergies, environmental irritants, facial pain or sinus pressure. Learning these protocols will also lower the need for dangerous antibiotics and toxic chemical nasal sprays.

Once you are effective in using the neti pot therapies, you will know these protocols really work and are simple and easy to do after you have practiced a few times, and could help most people with many types of allergies, mucus buildup and hardening, dry sinus, parasites and mold to name a few of the complaints that go along with sinus dysfunctions.

Using a Neti pot is one of the best ways to cleanse the sinus cavities where most people complain of stuffy nose, mucus drip, headache and sinus pressure from the flu or common cold.

The Neti pot sort of looks like a little Aladdin’s lamp. Neti pots are very easy to use, and usually people will have great results when trying to reduce sinus inflammation or mild infections. The neti pot works by simply pouring a bacteria free liquid solution into one nostril, and it will come out of the other nostril.

This is a very simple and an easy process to learn. Most people will just use a saline solution made from sea salt, which works well to clean out the mucus in the sinus cavities.

Over the years of clinical practice and research, I have found; if you get a sinus infection in the early stages of the flu or common cold, it is best to use some of the proven neti pot recipes to clean up the sinuses before they become more of a problem.

In part 2, I will demonstrate the recipes using a variety of over the counter natural compounds, using diluted Food Grade H202, Sodium Bicarbonate, Lugol’s Iodine, Borax, Pine Oil and Essential Oils.

What Is Sinusitis?

Sinusitis is an inflammation or swelling of the tissue lining the sinuses. Healthy sinuses are filled with air, but when they become blocked and filled with fluid, germs can grow and cause an infection.

Conditions that can cause sinus blockage include:

  • The common cold
  • Allergic rhinitis, which is swelling of the lining of the nose
  • Small growths in the lining of the nose called nasal polyps
  • A deviated septum, which is a shift in the nasal cavity

What Are The Sinuses?

The sinus cavity is split up into 4 paired sections. All of the sinus cavities in the face are air filled cavities connected to the skull, creating small nasal airway passages in the upper, middle and lower facial sinus cavities.

Humans have 1 pair of each of these 4 cavities.

Most commonly known as:

  • Frontal Sinus (forehead)
  • Maxillary Sinus (behind upper cheeks)
  • Ethmoid Sinuses (between the eyes)
  • Sphenoid Sinus (deep behind the ethmoids)

The sinuses have many functions such as moistening, humidifying and warming the air on inhalation, insulation for the surrounding facial structures, the cavities increase the resonance of our voice and also helps insulate against facial trauma.

Once inflammation occurs in the sinuses, mucus forms and starts to block the cavities, sometimes causing bacterial infections.

Using the Neti Pot usually heals the inflammation and mucus blockage. Water alone does not work too well. If you do not have any other compounds to add to your neti pot, using small amounts of sea salt can give much relief to help unblock the sometimes hard and infected mucus.

The recipes I will show you are much more effective than just using plain water, or even with water and salt added together.

Are Neti Pots Good For You?

The FDA is warning that improper use of neti pots can be dangerous and lead to infections, including the deadly Naegleria fowleri – better known as the “brain-eating” amoeba. In a statement, the FDA said that when used and cleaned properly, neti pots are usually safe and effective – src: Is it safe to rinse your sinuses with a neti pot?

I have been using Neti Pots for over 20 years, and I have never heard of anyone getting an infection from using one. I am sure you can catch anything if the water and neti pot are unclean.

This is why you always wash the Neti pot with either alcohol, H202 or a mild unscented chemical free detergent first before any use to make sure the Neti pot is clean. There have been a few people reported that have died from using dirty river or well water with amoebas or other parasites that could enter the brain or sinus cavities from the neti pot.

If you are worried about your water not being entirely free of bacteria or pathogens, simply boil the water and let cool before using.

What Type Of Water Is Best To Use In A Neti Pot?

In my opinion distilled water is the cleanest water you can get on the planet. I only use pure distilled water I make myself, and it is the best for drinking, cooking and using in therapies like this. Since it is the only really clean form of water, void of fluoride, chloramines, chlorine, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, heavy metals, petrochemicals, parasites, bacteria and mold etc.

I always suggest people boil the water first before using it in the neti pot, if your water is in question. Then you will never have a problem with contamination if you are concerned.

I recommend you never use toxic tap water in your neti pot therapy, or drink tap water internally.

Municipal, or most city water is treated with many harmful chemicals like fluoride, chloramines, chlorine or bromine and the accumulation of contaminants from agriculture, planes and air pollution etc.

The next best and cleanest water other than distilled water made by steam is a 6 stage Reverse Osmosis / RO system.

Making Your Own Homemade Neti Pot

If you do not have a Neti Pot you can easily make your own with a used plastic bottle. First, find yourself a 32-64 oz plastic water bottle. Wash the bottle good with either organic non-scented soap, vodka or food grade 3% H202. Make sure you get all of the soap or H202 out of the bottle before using.

Cut a small ¼ inch hole in the corner of the bottle top, or lid. I like to use ¼ drill bit and drill the top of the cap. You can also use a knife to cut out a small hole in the lid.

I used a homemade plastic bottled neti pot for years, because I like to be able to squeeze the bottle into the sinus cavity to get the fluid a little deeper in the sinuses.

You can also use a clean industrial spray bottle. The spray bottle is a little more tricky to use because most people will squirt up their nose too hard, or too far. If you are going to use the spray bottle I recommend using the fanned or mist adjustment on the sprayer bottle at first.

Then try using the sprayer with more direct spray after you are used to the fine mist spray. The spray bottle works excellent to mist deep into the nostrils.

An old clean plastic water bottle works great as well. Again make sure the water bottle has been cleaned and sanitized before and after use.

I have also seen people use enema bags and small plastic enema bottles for homemade neti pots.

The ceramic Neti Pots are about $25.- and they are homemade. The neti pot works on simple gravitational flow without any flowing pressure. The homemade plastic bottle works well for most people when you don’t have a neti pot. One of the advantages of using the plastic water bottle is that you can squeeze the bottle to get more than just gravity flow. You can actually apply pressure by squeezing the bottle, and this will enhance the flow of the water into the sinus canals.

All of the above methods work very well. All you have to do is get used to having the water run into one nostril and out the other.

Some Of The Ways I Use The Neti Pot Therapy

I know many people that use the neti pot daily because they live in a dry dusty or toxic area, pollution particulate dust or have sinus pressure or allergy issues daily. This salt water recipe has been used for centuries, and it is the simple recipe of choice if you are just cleaning out the particulates and using the therapy daily.

I like to use the more advanced recipes for maintenance, acute and chronic sinus care. I will show you some very effective recipes I have learned over the past 40 years instead of just using a simple salt water solution.

I have found that many patients who have consistent sinus complaints may want to try experimenting with some of the recipes below I have had excellent results from.

  • Removes excess mucus congestion and sinus pressure.
  • Can be used several times a day during the allergy season.
  • Removes soot, dust, smoke, particulates or other airborne contaminants.
  • Dissolves mucus build-up and inflammation from dry dusty climates, air conditioning, heated rooms, air plane travel and supports detoxification.
  • The nasal wash can be used prior to exercise, meditation or before sleep to help you breathe freely and easily through your nostrils.

Instructions: Using The Neti Pot and Salt Water Recipe

  • Clean the Neti Pot with either unscented soap or H202 before using it to make sure there are not any contaminants in it.
  • Always use distilled water if you can. Heat up at least 32 oz of water to lukewarm or body temperature. If you do not have distilled water the next best water to use is a good Reverse Osmosis System (RO) – if not then use bottled water. Do not use municipal city water or tap water unless you have passed the water through a filter, and then you may want to boil the water to sterilize, then cool to body temperature (I have a distiller in my home for drinking and cooking, and this is absolutely the best water to use for this therapy, drinking and cooking.)
  • I would first try and use the neti pot with just sea salt. Usually this is sufficient to clean out the mucus and sanitize the sinus cavity using just sea salt and warm water.
  • Before you start it is a good idea to swish some of the solution you are using around in the mouth and gums, and gargle with it, then spit it out. This moistens the back of the throat and checks the water to make sure the water is not too hot before you before you use it through the sinus cavities and nostrils.
  • Gently insert the spout into one nostril, make sure you have a good seal, then slowly start to lean forward and sideways over the sink lifting the neti pot with your head. Turn your head to one side and make sure your chin is parallel, or slightly higher than your forehead.
  • Raise the neti pot gradually so the saline solution slowly flows into the upper nostril cavity, and then water should flow out the other nostril quite easily, unless you are plugged with mucus. Some people will hold their breath, but I feel it is easier and much more effective to breathe through your mouth.
  • I like to empty the entire contents of the neti pot through one side, then refill the neti pot and do the other side. It’s best to blow out both nostrils vigorously at the same time for the first few blows, then I will close one nostril with my finger and blow out the remaining fluid and mucus into the sink or cloth, and repeat blowing vigorously back and forth until the nostrils are clear, and are breathing free of fluid or mucus.
  • I feel it is important for most people who have sinus issues to wait a few minutes, and then repeat the cycle once again.

Salt Water Sinus Recipe For Beginners

If you have never tried sinus irrigation before, it is a good idea to practice just the salt water ingredients for the first few times to get used to the liquid flowing from one side to the other through your nostrils, correctly.

Add 1/4-1/2 tsp of finely ground Himalayan Sea Salt or Liquid Sole Salt into 32 oz of warm, sterile, distilled water. Try the salt only recipe first to see if you get the desired results you need.

Optional: Add 1/4-1/2 tsp of Sodium Bicarbonate to alkalize the sinus cavity for increased drainage and cleansing.

Sometimes I add 2-4 drops of Grape Seed Extract (GSE) to the disinfecting and mucus drainage properties.

Experiment with the above sinus irrigation protocols several times to get the full therapeutic effects of the nasal wash, before using the other recipes in the description below.

The other sinus recipes will be a little more aggressive since they have more compounds added to them. So, it’s best to try the beginning recipe first for your neti pot therapy.

Clean Up And Storage Of The Neti Pot

I always clean the neti pot right after use, and right before I want to use it, with either soap and water, or Food Grade 3%+ H202 sprayed inside. Rinse after every use, and leave out in the open air to dry.


If you are having chronic discomfort from any of the sinus recipes, discontinue using your neti pot therapy and consult your health practitioner, or other healthcare provider, for other possible treatments and/or other opinions.

In part 2, I will go into detail about 4 therapeutic effective sinus treatments and recipes I have used for many years for the support of detoxification, inflammation, allergies, cold or flu like symptoms, headaches, sore throat, congestion and mild/moderate sinus infections.
