    guafenesin, i wonder how helpful it would be for sinuses as it helps liquify mucus etc??

    Have to really be careful with things like eucalyptus, menthol, camphor, eugenol if you have MCS. Those kinds of substances can really be nasty and trigger reactions.

    I use Alkalol occasionally, but I don't find it a great help. For a short time my sinuses feel a little more open, but it doesn't last long.

    I've sent off for a bottle to try it - will post about how I get on.

    Just got my bottle and checked with the manufacturer that the 'caramel colouring' doesn't contain gluten, and they confirm that it doesn't. :thumbsup:

    NAC and proteolytic enzymes will thin the mucus.

    I used this for a year or so. I'd say it helped to a very mild degree.

    Doesn't sound very promising! It's quite expensive.

    Still, it's early days experimenting with this stuff for me - I'll just give it a go.
