Sinus (a snotty story)

Sinus (a snotty story)

A healthy body does not produce phlegm, itch, swell or pain chronically.

Inflammation is the root cause of all pain. Natural inflammation that comes with an injury is a part of the healing process.

 

Chronic inflammation is a red light that the body is not well. Putting a plaster on this will cause more serious diseases. To medicate without getting to the root of a problem is not worth much, except for relieving symptoms for the short term.

 

Remember that it took time to get to a bad place of not feeling well and it will take time to get to a place of feeling alive and well. You are healed when you are better without medication. Once again, there are no magic potions. If you don’t address the reason that got you to where you are, how will you reverse the process? Our lifestyle, stress and toxins directly affect our health.

 

Histamine

A chemical is created in the body when the immune system is defending against a potential allergen. It is a natural process and the bodies way of letting you know you are allergic to something. This release can result in an allergic reaction from allergy triggers in the environment surrounding you or something you consumed. Histamine is associated with common allergic responses and symptoms such as headaches and migraines, nasal congestions and sinus issues, fatigue, digestive issues, nausea, vomiting, irregular menstrual cycles, itching and rashes. Drinking plenty of water every day is essential for all body functions including the regulation of histamine levels.

 

Histamine free diet

Certain components within these foods can trigger the direct release of histamine. Avoid wines (ones that contain sulfites), fish, pork, aged - meats, sausage, salami, cheese, citrus fruits, papaya, strawberries, pineapple, peanuts, tomatoes, spinach, dairy products such as yogurts, sour cream, and chocolates. Also avoid canned foods, ready to eat frozen meals, preservatives, food colourings and yeast extract. Finally bread and pasta (gluten).

 

Natural antihistamines

Quercetin can assist with allergies by inhibiting histamine release. It is also helpful for inflammation, relieves pain, is anti-viral, collagen strengthener and antioxidant. 

 

Vitamin C

Is a natural antihistamine, which will lower the intensity of a reaction to a possible allergen.

Vitamin C is also a very strong antioxidant, preventing and limiting the damaging effects of oxidative stress, which has been linked to many chronic diseases.

It also helps to encourage the production of white blood cells, protecting the body against infection. Vitamin C also shortens the recovery time after illness.

Tip

Do not use force when blowing your nose, as this forces mucus back into the sinus cavities. Instead, draw secretions to the back of the throat by sniffing, then expel them.

If nasal secretions turn clear after a week, you probably do not have an infection; if the mucus is greenish or yellowish, you probably do. If secretions are clear and you have no other symptoms of a cold, you probably have allergies.
