    The BEG basal spray contains BEG: Bactroban (Mupirocin) 0.2%, Edetate Disodium (EDTA) 1%, Gentamicin 3%

    BEG Nasal Spray is an effective way to eradicate biofilm forming, antibiotic resistant staphylococcus colonizations in the sinus cavity. BEG Nasal Spray is used to treat patients susceptible to recurrent staph infections.

    This unique formulation addresses the needs of patients recovering from mold or lyme toxins. It is an effective option to combat antibiotic resistant bacterial colonies. This is the key step aiding in the recovery and healing process. BEG Nasal Spray's active ingredients are a combination of two antibiotics (Bactroban, Gentamicin) and the calcium chelator EDTA. The EDTA dissolves the biofilm coating clearing the way for a direct attack by the topical antibiotics.

    I have been waiting a couple of weeks for my compounding pharmacy to make this up for me and send it on. Today it arrived. First spray stung like hell. Im to use it 3 times a day until its gone. Im also still on oral antibiotics augmentin and minocycline which is helping but still have some issues obviously. I think i have 8 days of augmentin left and will hold off on oral antibiotics and see how effective the sprays has been. I think the spray is suppose to last 4 weeks??

    Someone else from here who has been using this for a short while has told me its helping him but the spray is very irritating and has had a few nose bleeds so has diluted it by 50%.

    cheers!!!

    I found that N-acetyl-glucosamine (NAG), the supplement that (as I explain here) very rapidly and dramatically fixed my severe and constant anxiety symptoms, was also very effective is reducing my chronic nasal/sinus inflammation (at a dose of 750 mg once or twice daily). I'd definitely give NAG a try, if you have nasal/sinus inflammation.

    Good luck, heaps! I think getting rid of an infection so close to the brain would have to be useful.

    I wouldn't worry about backing off the dose a bit at first if you need to do so. That is what my friend did with her nasal spray when it caused too much die-off at first and it worked well.

    Been a few days on the spray now and i think its helping. The post nasal drip is reduced. Still feeling crappy with some cracker headaches and another sickie from work today. I dont know if its related to sinuses or not or just cmv type viral headache???? I also think the initial irritation from the spray has reduced as well although there is still abit of a sting.

    Ema you mention a friend had die off type reactions from nasal spray antibiotics, i wonder if this is the cause of my headaches. For what its worth i dosed up on periactin which is used alot for migraines as well as some gabapentine today for these headaches and it helped alot and i dozed off for a few hours. I feel alot better but still have this headache just lingering in the background.

    I used this spray (about 5) years ago, when I started seeing my good Dr.

    My allergist had me use mupriocin I. My Neil med for chronic sinus. I can tell you when I get the infected junk out, my sadness/anxiety goes away, I feel my energy return and the brain fog lift a bit. I have always felt the sinus issue was one of the keys to solving it.

    Do you know if hypoglycemics can take this? I'm looking but not finding if this form of glucose causes an insulin response.

    Thanks. Yes this is quite clear: "Even though glucosamine is technically a type of sugar, it doesn't appear to affect blood glucose levels or insulin sensitivity. Some preliminary research had suggested that glucosamine might worsen insulin resistance, which can contribute to increases in blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes. But subsequent studies refuted these findings."

    I found that it did it's job, and my sinuses are much better. I use a CPAP (w/oxygen) for the last 4 years now, and still get some "crusties" when I use the CPAP, but not as bad as before!

    I am starting to get small amount of blood when i blow my nose, so the irriation the spray is causing is probably to blame. Only have a few days left of the spray. Its definately helped as my post nasal drip is about gone but i still have a small amount of congestion. I may order another spray but wait awhile and let the irritation in my nose heal and or diluted it down which another member from here did.

    From my understanding is that mold exposure may cause an serious infection in sinuses.
    I read that mold , mycotoxin. or sick building illness will never ever be completely cured unless this infection is addressed.
    MARCoNS (Multiple Antibiotic Resistant Coagulase Negative Staphylococci) is an antibiotic resistant staph infection that resides deep in the nose of 80% of people with low MSH (Melanocyte-Stimulating Hormone this hormone when it is messed up it which triggers a domino reaction too much to write here read Shoemakers book.

    A regular ENT is not the right doctor .I saw five ENT doctor and had sinus surgery all did nasal smear and stuff sent to pathology lab no findings

    My ND studied with Shoemaker, knew I had mold exposure and he did a deep nasal smear.
    Lab results I had MARCoNS.

    I was put on BEGS . Here is brief list of side effects and symptoms from BEGS spray:
    Dizziness, major brain fog, head ache, major fatigue, and sleepiness, I felt a level of exhaustion, agitated, and short on patience I sum this up as a total die off
    reaction. I slept a lot during this time. I also used neti pot with EDTA a couple
    hours later I had a reaction that stunned me sorry this is graphic. I felt a odd
    sensation in my nose so ran into the bathroom and I tipped my head a bunch of
    thick, clear jelly like mucus slide out of my nose a couple hours after using it It was biofilm!
    Then I used BEGS spray. And would do 10 minutes of deep breathing
