Sinus infections would include mostly runny nose (lots of blowing nose). Should one keep blowing their nose, or let it run?
Also it includes waking up with a clogged/stuffed nose.
What would help this or cure this?
First, it's important to distinguish a stuffy/runny nose from a sinus infection. They are 2 very different things and if you reach the point of bacterial infection you may need antibiotics. Second, I had lifelong sneezing with stuffy nose and nasal drip and was diagnosed with vasomotor rhinitis. Imagine my surprise when I went primal at age 64 and 2 weeks later had NO SYMPTOMS! Turned out to be wheat, because after a few months I caved and had some treats containing wheat and all my respiratory symptoms came right back, then disappeared when I went back to primal. I still have a few reactions to blooming trees, but that's once or twice per year as opposed to 60 years straight.
I found I was allergic to dust mites and got the cases for my mattress and pillows. I also vacumed under the bed and dusted real good and now keep everything pretty clean. It really helped me.
Some people have incorporated xylitol in their nasal irrigation solution to help fight infection.
I am just getting over a horrendously nasty bout of a sinus infection myself and suffered for a week before I relented and went on antibiotics. Doing the paleo diet for the past 3 months and being gluten-free, grain & legume free did nothing to help prevent or alleviate any symptoms, so quite a disappointment. I too am looking for answers in the paleo world. The only possible remaining issue might be dairy. I eat butter, some cheese (unpasteurized), and heavy cream in my coffee. But maybe it's unrealistic for paleo-diet to be a cure-all for everything, especially bacterial infections. Or maybe I haven't been on the paleo diet long enough to reap the benefits. (I also fly on a regular basis and it seems that every time I go on a trip, I pick up something.) If anyone out there has an answer or solution, I'd love to hear it.
Sinus infections can really be tormenting. First I must insist that antibiotics have been discouraged for sinus infections. (They are actually useless for most sinus infections). But I came across something that actually guarantees to help with your sinuses.
Ever heard of 'The Sinus Doctor Sinus Treatment'? A its a sinus remedy that I can testify to be legit. Though it might cost u a bit, $92 is a small price to pay to beat the suffering of sinus infection. (You can read the reviews about it. . . Its legit!)
Find out more on their website:
36 HOURS only and your sinuses will NEVER come back. I hope to here your testimony. (You can share this with anyone else who suffers the same.)
(I shared this earlier in another Question on this site "I have a cold that doesn't go away")
