This post was scheduled to go up last Thursday! However, I’ve been on the road, and when I went to check on it today, I realized that it had never published. Technology is so frustrating sometimes! This isn’t the first time his has happened to me, so I need to be more diligent about making sure my posts actually, you know, post.
I received this product through Chronic Illness Bloggers, in partnership with ImmunizeLabs. Although I got to try the product for free in exchange for my opinion, all opinions are my own and have not been influenced in any way.
I talk a lot about some of my chronic illnesses, like my Celiac Disease. They’re pretty much public knowledge at this point. There are a few things I don’t talk about as often, though, and one of them is chronic sinusitis. From October 2016 to March 2017, I had eight sinus infections. That’s more than one a month! My sinus infections are primarily caused by allergic rhinitis and vasomotor rhinitis, which inflame my nose and keep my sinuses from draining properly. I’ve done just about everything to cure it short of breaking my nose and having it reset, which was suggested at one point because it tilts to one side and keeps a sinus from draining properly. But I digress.
When I got the email from Chronic Illness Bloggers about trying out the Immunize Labs nasal spray, I was intrigued. Although these statements have not been evaluated by the FDA and this product is not intended to diagnose, treat, prevent, or cure any disease or illnesses, the website provides background about all of the ingredients in the homeopathic sinus spray. These include colloidal silver, xylitol, sea salt, cayenne pepper, horseradish, wintergreen, oregano, eucalyptus blue, lemon, rosemary, tea tree oil, pine needle, peppermint, and marjoram. Breathe Easy retails for $20 and can be purchased on ImmunizeLab’s website, which is here.
Some of these ingredients have been recommended by my allergists and ENTs over the years. Sea salt spray is common in the treatment of sinus congestion, and eucalyptus and peppermint oils are often in those sinus bath bombs you see at stores. If you’re one of those people who loves finding natural ways to treat your illnesses— chronic or acute— you’ve probably heard of most of these ingredients, too.
The bottle, the packaging, and the website all state that this is very potent, so only one spray per nostril is needed. I found this to be true. You know how cleanses are all the rage lately? This was like a sinus cleanse. I’m always stuffy, and after using this, I felt my nostrils open up for the first time in forever. I did have a runny nose, like after you eat something spicy. Or, in this case, like after you spray a concoction containing something spicy up your nose.
I’m not able to use this product every day, or even several days in a row, because it can give me a pretty bad headache. I have chronic migraine, so even looking at the wrong thing can trigger headaches on a bad day. It isn’t necessarily a reflection on this product, especially since I noticed that a lot of the reviews on the website are from people who use it specifically for their headaches! That said, I do like to use the Breathe Easy Nasal Spray by ImmunizeLabs as a once a week nasal cleanse.
Being able to flush out some of the nasty, germy snot that’s built up in my nose really helps me out. Snot build-up (gross I know) was backing up and blocking off my Eustachian tubes, giving me ear infections along with my sinusitis. Ear infections can go south fast— ask my eardrums— so preventing them is key.
Breathe Easy Nasal Spray by ImmunizeLabs may not be a cure-all, but I’ve added it into my sinusitis-fighting repertoire. As someone with chronic sinusitis and ear infections, that’s saying something.
