Hello cured, Glad to see your sinus problems seem to be better. I was wondering , did your sinus condition/infection involve the sphenoid. I am going on 3 months with this sphenoid issue and would love to try and treat it using the inversion method you mention. The usual 2 courses of antibiotics did little to rectify my issues. Other than the flip turn method which claims to possibly clean the sphenoid I haven’t found any other sights (I have done variations of the flip turn with a modicum of success however I find it hard to hold the upside down position for much longer than a couple of mins. It would seem your idea of 20 or 30 mins would be more ideal. Also how long did it take for you to clear your sinuses and do you still do the rinses for maintenance. Seems as if this doesn’t work I will unfortunately be reliant on the typical routes which seem iffy at best, Thanks Drew

When it comes to treating sinus infections, “patients vary as to when they will seek medical intervention. Some will come in after only a day or two of symptoms; some not for two to three weeks,” Seiden said. Longer waits can make symptoms harder to treat, he said, “while many patients with symptoms for only a few days will in fact have a viral infection.”
Although there are few downsides to using nasal steroids such as those in the review —they are fairly expensive, Seiden said. According to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, diagnosing and treating sinusitis costs Americans nearly $6 billion every year.
