Do you think a flip turn sinus flush containing antibiotics would be more effective, if it is the sinuses that are the problem? Just throwing an idea out there.
I, myself, believe that the reason antibiotics only work temporarily for us is because our natural oral flora is restored soon after. I read that the human oral microbiole is very resistant - as we are constantly eating so being exposed to new bacteria etc and it remains the same. My hope is now pinned on the Oral Microbiota Transplant becoming a reality.
Antibiotics do cure sinus infections but they take a longer duration on antibiotics than most other infections due to the blood flow problem. Also if you can't drain them properly or have stubborn biofilms it won't work either. I have chronic sinusitis and have had it since my BB started in childhood so I am going to try my best to clear that up, assuming it's of bacterial origin.
I'd love to use a topical antibiotic in a sinus flush but I can't get my hands on one, and there's no guarantee it would penetrate the biofilm anyway. I just looked into alternatives and found this: http://www.omaha.com/livewellnebraska/h ... 4ac1e.html
Baby Shampoo + Xylitol sinus rinse to break down biofilm + oral Antibiotics = chronic sinusitis cured
Looks like I'll be adding those two ingredients! Awesome.
