And THAT I'm going to look into as well, I hope I can get a similar product here...

If you can't get Xlear (or even if you can, but you just want it cheaper...) The recipe is:

8oz Distilled Water
1/4 to 1/2 tsp Salt (no additives or flowing agents - pickling salt)
1 tbsp Xylitol
1/16 tsp Baking Soda (optional)
4 drops Grapefruit Seed Extract (or use within 3 days)

use it in a netipot or put it in a squirty bottle. Could just add an appropriate amount of xylitol to the regular saline spray too.

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

RE: sinus problems
Keep in mind if you have dogs in the house xylitol is toxic to them so be careful to keep it away from them. My littlest dog is a chewer so I can't even have a bottle sitting anywhere he could get to it.

I use my PAP machine nightly and I feel great!
