Hey all, I need some assistance in erasing this last nagging health problem I've been having for years. Over time I've found this place to be a better source for health advice then any doctor I've ever been to, so here goes..
Background Info 100% Paleo (Medium carb. I take some (sweet) peeled potatoes/parnsips/pumpkin daily). 24yo. Diagnosed with dustmite fever around age 16. No dairy (except grassfed pastured butter), no grains, no legumes. Only nuts are macademia. 90% of meat is grassfed. Supplementing with 6000 IU Vit D. 1-2 grams fish oil a day, some vitamin C, NOW Foods Super Enzymes. I use Pink Himalayan Salt as my salt source.
Problem I have like a chronic cold/running nose/congestion (both nostrils). I wake up every morning with a lot of congestion, and even after clearing all the stuff out it still comes back the rest of the day. It alters my voice in a negative way and I run out of breath faster during sports. It also causes bloody noses more often than not. Doctors have described the problems as oversensitive glands in the nose (don't know if I'm translating this correctly) and dustmite allergy.
What I've tried I've tried an arrangement of prescribed/over-the-counter traditional medicine stuff (pills and some nasal sprays). None of which has helped me. I also have allergen-free sheet and pillow covers.
The problem is all these things are trying to fix a symptom. I'm interested in fixing the cure of my chronic nasal congestion.
I've read some other stuff about this (http://paleohacks.com/questions/5258/intermittent-diziness-vertigo#axzz1G8nEA5de) and I might try the NeilMed (if I can locate a company that ships to the Netherlands at a reasonable price) along with some sort of xylitol nasal spray.
Before I try that approach, has any of you smart minds got any other suggestions?
