Garlic, Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda – Home remedy for E.Coli: Garlic has antimicrobial effects. Adding garlic to a food, can reduce the risk of E. coli infection.  Put a few drops of garlic liquid extract in distilled water together with a few drops of natural apple cider vinegar and a pinch of baking soda. Rinse your sinuses with this mixture 4-5 times daily.

1. How it works. You pour this mixture into one nostril. As it flows through your nasal cavity into the other nostril, it washes out mucus and allergens.
2. To rinse your sinuses, you'll need a container, or use a bulb syringe or neti pot. Usually available at health food stores and drugstores. 
3. If you are using a squeeze bottle, neti pot, or syringe, lean forward over the sink, at about a 45-degree angle. Tilt your head so that one nostril is pointed down toward the sink. Don't tilt your head back.
4. Place the spout of a neti pot or the tip of a syringe or squeeze bottle just inside your nose. The tip should go in no further than a finger's width. Keeping your mouth open, squeeze the bulb syringe or bottle, or tilt the pot to pour the mixture into your nostril. Remember to breathe through your mouth, not your nose.
5. The mixture will run through your nasal passages and drain out of your other nostril and maybe your mouth. You should spit it out and not swallow it. But if some does go down your throat it won't hurt you.
6. Gently blow your nose to clear out the remaining mixture. Repeat the procedure with your other nostril. 

Always seek the advice of your doctor before taking herbal medications
