This iodine rinse is supposed to lead the clearer thinking and protect against dementia…as well as help with sinus problems.
I tried it and liked it.

“…another approach to using iodine for the sinuses (and the eyes), and point out why this approach can be beneficial even if you do not have chronic sinus problems.
As pointed out in my blogs on Alzheimer’s disease, it is currently believed that microbes, mold, and fungi, inhabiting the brain, are responsible for the formation of amyloid plaque.
It turns out that amyloid plaque is a symptom of the problem, and not the cause of Alzheimer’s, as was previously believed.
Since the sinuses (and possibly the eyes) are an avenue for these disruptive elements to get into the brain, practicing good sinus and eye hygiene will also ultimately help to prevent dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Dave Asprey (of Bulletproof fame) has a video on Youtube in which he creates a rinse for the sinuses and eyes.
Below is a summary of his procedure, followed by a link to his video.
Fill a large salad bowl with filtered, fairly hot water (not hot enough to burn), add some natural salt (about ½ teaspoon per cup of water).
Most sinus rinses contain salt because it is antibacterial, whereas regular water can promote bacteria growth.
(Sometimes in a deadly way, as with the woman in Seattle, who ended up with a brain-eating amoeba as a result of her nasal rinse containing only tap water, run through an old Brita filter, and no saline solution.)
To the salt water, one then adds a few drops of iodine, and some xylitol (optional).
Xylitol is used in many nasal rinses as it both removes bacteria, and reduces biofilm (which the bacteria uses to protect itself).
According to one study, “xylitol irrigations result in greater improvement of symptoms of chronic rhinosinusitis as compared to saline irrigation”.
Once the solution is mixed, one should dip their face into the bowl (spine parallel to the floor).
Open the eyes underwater, and blink a few times; this will kill bad bacteria that can inhabit the eyes, and will help with allergies by clearing pollen, and pollutants, from the eyes.
Now comes (what I consider to be) the hard part. Close your eyes and suck up the water through your nose.
The solution should not go down your throat (if you are at the proper angle), but, if done correctly, should collect at the back of the mouth.
When the mouth is full, spit the water into a sink, and repeat.
According to Asprey, regular use will break up biofilm in the sinuses, reduce inflammation, and clear your mind.
He says, “When I started using this technique, I did it about 10 times a day, because my sinus congestion was so severe.
Now, I only do it once or twice a week as maintenance. It changed my life.”
