Discover Sinusitis Causes Right Under Your

The causes of sinusitis may be lurking right under your nose. Would that surprise you? Curiously enough what you’re putting in your mouth may have a profound effect on your sinuses.

Abnormal immune responses to dairy products .monly cause problems in the respiratory tract. Discerning a food allergy symptom difficult because we eat a lot of the same foods over and over again almost every day. Of course, you will know it’s a reaction to a food when you immediately experience hives or swelling. But often the manifestations of food reactions occur up to two days after you have eaten it. By then you don’t even remember what you ate 2 days ago, so how can you possibly link it to that ice cream you ate that day or the yogurt you ate yesterday. The best way to test yourself to see if a food reaction is the cause of your sinusitis is to .pletely eliminate that food from your diet for a least 5 full days. However, if dairy culprits are the problem, you need to eliminate them for at least 2 weeks. That means not eating any little smidgen of anything that has milk in it or is derived from milk. So you have to read labels carefully. Avoid food containing any of these items derived from milk: milk, buttermilk, yogurt, cottage cheese, all cheese, butter, casein, whey, lactose, anything that says "caseinated", smoothies, shakes, and ice cream. Now start listening to your body. It takes about 5 days to get a food out of you system. Then you may start feeling better. Do you have less mucous drainage? Has that sinus headache decreased? Are you more mentally alert and beginning to feel better overall? Does your gut feel better? Stay off dairy products and keep listening to your body for a full two weeks because it can take that long for the dairy-induced inflammation to die down in your body. If your sinuses feel great at the end of that 2 week period of dairy abstention, then you have found your answer and now you know how to keep your sinuses healthy. If your sinuses are not perfectly well after avoiding dairy products, you could have more than one food allergy or sensitivity and you will have to eliminate the others to find your sinusitis causes.

Add one eliminated food back into your diet every three days so you can detect any delayed reactions.
