Vaccine-triggered CFS found linked to nasopharyngitis: 81% are cured or improved by treating the nasopharyngitis

56% of the healthy population also test positive for mild-moderate nasopharyngitis, so this finding is interesting, but not as significant as finding severe nasopharyngitis.
I also have mucus dripping down my throat (but never through the nose) every 5-10 minutes that may come from nasopharyngitis - chronic infection in Nasopharynx area.

I am now back to using oil-onion juice-honey mixture instead of zinc chloride on Nasopharynx for 4-5 days straight, and unlike the sinusitis version of this treatment that had to be cycled ON/OFF (to not lose effectiveness), this doesn't lose it's effectiveness over time if used without ON/OFF cycle.

In short, I used this with oil-onion juice-honey mixture instead of zinc chloride and it put me into near remission after the first use by removing chronic fatigue and PEM, but these symptoms returned after 18 hours and it didn't work after second application.
Before I had this major improvement in symptoms, I thought that somehow sinusitis was causing the mucus dripping, but I do not qualify for chronic sinusitis diagnosis, because my nasal cavities aren't blocked according to MRI/CT scan and as stated by several good Drs. I only have mild mucus congestion area in one of maxillary cavities (according to CT scan) that I think may come from inflammation in Nasopharynx area.

That's a reasonable theory, but remember that zinc is a good topical antiviral and antibacterial, so as well as being anti-inflammatory, it may also inhibit infection.
I couldn't find information on zinc or ZnCl2 antibacterial properties, but maybe I wasn't looking in the right place.

That is probably a condition called post-nasal drip.

Just putting zinc antibacterial into Google gives lots of info.

I've been doing nasopharyngitis treatment with onion juice and honey (50/50 solution) x2 daily for more than 2 weeks. My mild-moderate nasopharyngitis is now gone, I feel significantly less PEM. This improvement is similar (but not as strong) to short term improvements from my nasal treatment, but now the effect doesn't wear off! I will continue the treatment for at least a few mounts. I still have what seems like post-nasal drip and this treatment doesn't reduce the amount of mucus produced.

Also, a good way to get long cotton swabs is to connect the two with a toothpick. It's reliable and doesn't brake even when rubbing very hard. However, choose thick toothpicks, otherwise they may not secure swabs in place.

Upd: onion juice looses it's effect over time, so it's best to make new solution every 2-3 days.

I still have this improvement, nothing changed. I'm making this update becouse today I started treatment with immunosimulant immodin, so any future improvements, if any, will most likely be becouse of that.

@Tella It is safe if the nasal passages aren't very narrow.
One of my nostrils is pretty narrow, but with the right adjustment to the angle at witch I penetrate the nostril it's only mildly painful.

I didn't believe it myself that a cotton swab can go that far into the nostril, but after Nasopharyngeal Swab from Dr, I know that it's definitely possible and is safe :)

These things can introduce infection. And damage. I suggest u only do it thru an ENT but it’s up to u.
If done with clean swabs & hand hygiene it is safe. Don't rub very hard the nasopharynx. Follow basic precautions and it will be safe.

I use onion juice and honey (50/50 solution) witch could potentially cause infection if the solution is spoiled, but it's all good, I used that since summer for normal nasal swabs. But this won't even be a problem with "food great" Zinc and distilled water becouse it's sterile.
