Let’s get a couple of things straight before we start here. There are at least two things that I have never claimed – 1) I have never claimed to be a good writer and 2) I have never claimed to be brilliant. As a matter of fact, I’m not sure I even like to write and while I know I’m not a complete dumbass, there are times when I am more than aware that there are quite a few people out there that put my intellectual status to shame. Now, with that being said…
For those of you that have followed my work for any extended period of time, you are likely familiar with my desire to experiment with health alternatives. I do a lot of research in the hopes of finding easy ways to make our lives a little healthier. Unfortunately, some are just not that appreciative and choose to attack me in my attempts.
A while back, I developed a protocol to help treat sinus infections. After testing it out myself, I made a video about it so that others could try it out for themselves. After getting tons of feedback about how wonderful it was, I wrote the article which detailed everything out even further so that even more people could try it. This protocol has literally helped thousands of people. In fact, people who have been dealing with chronic sinus infections for years have reported that their troubles are simply over after having given my protocol a try.
I’m so glad it has helped, but I suppose it’s true that there are some people who just want to watch the world burn. Not long ago, someone left a comment one of my Youtube channels concerning the video I made. Clearly this guy had not tried the protocol for himself, but he still felt it necessary to troll the context of my delivery. Let me be clear that I actually seek out those who choose to challenge my ideas – that’s how I get better. However, that’s not what this article is about. I tell you all of this to help you understand the context and tone of the message I am about to share. Ultimately, I wanted to share my response because I provide some detailed information that supports the use of the protocol.
“Peter Csigo” wrote the following…
I have to say that you’re an idiot. I had a severe sinus infection collapsed and the only thing helped was antibiotic. For you to say it’s never an answer that tells me right away that you’re not very bright.
That’s a bold thing to say to a stranger, if you ask me. Makes me wonder if he would be willing to say something that stupid to my face. Still, he’s calling me an idiot because he had to use antibiotics… because he didn’t know how to treat his sinus infection before the sinus infection got so bad? And I’m the idiot? Well that’s just awesome!
Even if I am an idiot, I figured a solid response was in order. I also understand that if one person has a comment, then there are likely others with a similar frame of mind. So I took a few minutes to write out a solid response. That brings us to now because after posting it, I thought I would share my response with my readers so that everyone could learn why I believe the way I do when it comes to sinus infections.
My Rebuttal (pardon the attitude)
“Hmmm… well, just in case you’re interested in something other than your preconceived and misguided notions, you might be interested to learn the following:
1 – It is now well established that taking unnecessary antibiotics for a sinus infection is not only ineffectual, but can actually be harmful to you and everyone around you. In fact, misuse and overuse of antibiotics are the PRIMARY causes of drug-resistant bacteria. The point of interest here is that vast majority of sinus infections are not even bacterial. In fact, according to the Infectious Disease Society of America, up to 98 percent of all sinus infections are caused by viruses, which are not even affected by antibiotics. This means that numerous doctors are simply wrong for prescribing them – don’t get me started. Plus, that leaves roughly 2 percent of sinus infections even up for discussion in regard to bacteria. With that in mind, Dr. Monique Tello, MD, writing for Harvard Medical School and commenting on a study that was published in The New England Journal of Medicine, stated clearly that the VAST MAJORITY of sinus infections will improve or even clear ON THEIR OWN AND WITHOUT ANTIBIOTICS within one to two weeks. That tells me that we are talking about an even smaller percentage that might require medical intervention.
2 – Being a victim of chronic and quite severe bacterial sinus infections myself, I needed a way to cure them once and for all – because the antibiotics that doctors kept giving me were not only ineffective but also destroying my intestines. It just so happened that I like to research for solutions to my problems. During my research, I found that medical studies have definitely proven that the microbicidal action of povidone-iodine is quite broad. And… unlike local antibiotics, no resistance develops. In fact, “the high degree of bactericidal efficiency in respect of highly resistant gram-positive pathogenic micro-organisms, such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and enterococcus strains, has been particularly significant“. This is why it’s used so often in surgery and why I wanted to use it in my protocol.
3 – What I found to be the best news of all is that the body responds well to iodine in low doses and that povidone is actually an effective medicine for inactivating a range of viruses (including adenovirus, mumps, rotavirus, poliovirus (types 1 and 3), Coxsackie virus, rhinovirus, herpes simplex, rubella, measles, influenza and HIV). With this in mind, I figured it was quite possible that I could get a protocol together that would work great for not only bacterial sinus infections but also for viral sinus infections which comprise the vast majority of cases. Of course, this doesn’t even get into the wound healing benefits of both iodine and saline solutions which were of great benefit considering the open wounds my infections had created. Still, I wondered if it would be possible to find a synergistic combination between the two fluids and if it would ultimately work for me.
This is where I started my experiments and I finally found a decent protocol. So after having completely eradicated my sinus infections with the protocol I developed here (still don’t get them – even with a deviated septum); after having helped numerous people in a similar boat; knowing that povidone works better in many regards in this situation than antibiotics could dream of and understanding the mechanics of nasal irrigation, I eventually formed a BELIEF that just so happens to coincide with medical science that (at least for the VAST MAJORITY of cases) antibiotics are completely unnecessary for sinus infections – and this is especially true when a protocol like mine can potentially and preemptively eradicate invaders responsible for not only sinus infections that cannot be helped by antibiotics but also for a statistically insignificant (in comparison) number of sinus infections that would otherwise require serious interventions (such as cavernous sinus thrombosis and sinus related meningitis or brain abscess – of which Staphylococcus aureus likely accounts for at least two-thirds of all cases). My protocol worked for me… and all while NOT contributing to the bacterial resistance we continue to see from mainstream medicine.
So perhaps your question is whether or not it will work on every sinus infection in the world? Probably not and this is definitely true if it’s not tried. Still, I don’t make the claim that it will work 100% of the time on all infections. Instead, it’s something to try before taking the plunge on antibiotics. Even with that… I’m sure there are some people out there who may perform it wrong or have some deformity that complicates their individual situation or whatever… but that’s not what I was talking about and any intelligent individual would understand that. I’m simply talking about what I believe about the vast majority of cases. Still, it’s simple to see that this protocol has worked phenomenally for many people that had serious sinus infections that antibiotics couldn’t touch (allergy, fungal, viral and bacterial). A simple scroll through the comments will demonstrate this. And guess what? It is great for fungal infections and allergies as well… because iodine is an antifungal and disinfectant against molds and according to quite a few medical professionals, “nasal irrigation provides significant improvements in a wide range of allergy symptoms”.
So when it comes to sinus infections, yeah… I don’t believe antibiotics are ever “the answer” – not if you know about protocols such as this. Now… if you don’t know about the power of iodine or refuse to see the validity of protocols such as this… then of course, antibiotics are likely going to be in your future. But at that point, they are simply YOUR answer – not MY answer. But you may have noticed that this MY video where I talk about MY beliefs and MY solutions. YOU can take it or leave it. Still, it seems to me that your situation would have likely been very different had you done something like this as the infection spread. Regardless, if you think antibiotics are the answer because you have a story where antibiotics ultimately worked for you, then great for you. You know what? Antibiotics worked for me a couple of times as well… and then they didn’t.
I’m sure you’re right though… since you rolled the dice on antibiotics and have a story to tell… I’m the idiot. In fact, I’m glad you posted your opinion on this public forum to show everyone just how stupid I really am. I mean… what do I know, right? I’ve only researched this to a crazy degree and developed a protocol that completely eradicated my chronic sinus infections and helped thousands of others with theirs.
LMAO! Whatever you say, buddy!”
