When going Paleo many years ago, nearly everything got better, except one thing which I have nearly given up on trying to figure out.
Post nasal drip is a huge issue for me and happens on a daily basis. It is worst in the morning after waking up and sometimes after I get the crap out of my throat in the morning, I'm good for the rest of the day. Other times, it comes back later.
There is definitely something there as when I clear my throat and manage to get it out, it's a nasty sticky ball of mucus. Sometime's it is so sticky I can't get it out of my throat.
If you can figure out what is wrong with me, you'll get a prize because this is really a huge issue for me that I need gone.
Here's what I've tried:
Diet: - Strict paleo with no dairy at all (not even ghee) - No nightshades, eggs, nuts, seeds, or white potatoes (auto-immune protocol) - Lean pork, skinless chicken breast, wild fish, or 100% grass-fed beef only (good omega 3-6 balance) - Cooking only with 100% grassfed beef tallow - No fruit except for small amounts of berries (fructose control) - Low carb or high carb has no difference
Environment: - Dustmite covers on boxspring, mattress, and pillow. Allergy duvet cover on hypoallergenic comforter. Sheets and duvet washed on average every week.
During times, when I've had the carpets washed, everything dusted down, fresh sheets and comforter, there has been some relief but really only for a day max. There has to be something that is making me hypersensitive to the allergies. Could there still be a food allergy even with strict auto-immune paleo for over 30 days?
When I feel like I'm overall inflamed (day of bad sleep, too much stress, etc), it is worse, so I figure there is something inflammation going on.
