Sinusitis, Asthma and Food Allergies
Sinusitis is an inflammation, or swelling, of the tissue lining the sinuses. The sinuses should be filled with air. But when sinuses are blocked and get full of fluid, germs like bacteria, viruses and fungi grow and cause an infection. Sinusitis symptoms can be facial pain and pressure, nasal stuffiness, nasal discharge, loss of smell, headaches, and cough and congestion.
Sinusitis and Food allergies run hand in hand. A toxic food intolerance can contribute to the immune response that causes the inflammation which causes sinusitis. When a trigger food is eaten, the body will react like it is an invader. The result of this battle to destroy the invader is “allergic” symptoms like a runny rose, sinusitis, mucous and congestion, or a cough. This toxic food response can be a delayed reaction to the food ingested. For instance the allergic food may be ingested for dinner and the reaction occurs in the morning and the symptoms last for hours or for days. Any food, even healthy ones can cause a toxic reaction in the body or sinuses.
