    • The condition you reported in August is also my concern. I am on antibiotics and am about to start anti fungal irrigation. I eat a head of minced raw garlic, slightly broiled but not brown, every day. I’m doing lemon water and curries. I need to cut out dairy and drink ginger honey juice. What has happened with you and your sinus condition since August? Thank you

  4. I am using small amount of honey mixed with just enough water to dissolve. I then store it in small glass container. In the beginning when I had a headache I would use it every 30 minutes til I got relief. Take a cotton swab and dip it in the honey/water and clean nostrils. Use a clean swab for every dip and with each nostril. At first, you won’t be able to go in very far due to the tenderness but with continued application throughout the day you will be surprised at your progress. I even used this in my ears. It is a blessing.
