So I have just about had it with my clogged ears and sinuses. Based on everything I've read thus far, my gut intuition is telling me that there is in fact a beneficial bacterial ecology in just about every mucus area of the body, be it the digestive tract, vagina or sinuses. That would explain why, despite my having almost no mucus accumulation in my sinuses, they are constantly swollen--swollen because, IMO, they are reacting to the presence of fungi and there is no beneficial bacteria there to hold out the fungi. So even though I rinse all the time with antifungals, when there's even one trace of fungus left, it reproduces right back again and my sinuses are swollen back up again by the next morning.
Anyway, I am going to try drops of water kefir up my nose/ears at first, and depending on how that goes I may try acidophilus capsules as well.
Anyone who has tried, let me know how it worked out for you!
