The SNOT test

Home / Blog / High Dose IV Vitamin C / The SNOT test

Orthodox medicine insists antibiotics are the only effective way to treat sinus infections. But a new study says this isn’t true. In fact, it says antibiotics are completely ineffective. In this study, researchers conducted a randomized, controlled trial of 166 adults with acute sinusitis. They gave the patients either a 10 day course of amoxicillin or a placebo.

A SNOT test, standing for Sino-nasal Outcome test, assessed their progress during their treatment.

The patients were allowed to take other over-the-counter drugs to suppress their symptoms. The results showed no difference between antibiotic use or placebo.

The reason antibiotics are ineffective is because most sinusitis cases are viral in origin. Fortunately, there are “outside the box” treatments. You can add hydrogen peroxide to a nebulizer or a vaporizer. Add 1 teaspoon of 35% food-grade H202 per gallon of purified water. This works for viral, fungal or bacterial sinusitis.

Supplements that can help include:

-Vitamin A 100,000 units daily for a week

-Vitamin C 1 gram hourly to bowel tolerance

-Oil of oregano and citrus seed extract supplements (both widely available) are natural anti-infective. Take according to the bottle directions
