WHY DO I HAVE CHRONIC SINUS PROBLEMS?
A couple days ago I saw a patient whom I helped with a number of different health problems, including a severe and unrelenting case of ELBOW TENDINOSIS. A number of months ago, he had wanted to know how to go about LOSING SOME WEIGHT and getting healthier in the process. As always, I suggested eating a diet based on WHOLE FOODS. While on vacation earlier in the year, he started reading IT STARTS WITH FOOD (it has an average 5-star rating from its 537 reviewers on Amazon), and was so intrigued by the concepts that he started following its principles halfway through his vacation.
As of Friday, he and his wife had lost a combined 50 or 60 pounds over the past few months, but that is not what he was most excited about. By eating no processed foods and cutting out SUGAR AND JUNK CARBS from his diet (including high glycemic fruits), this person totally and 100% cleared up a decades-long case of sinus congestion. That's right; a case of chronic sinus congestion that had become so severe that his inability to breathe had actually left him claustrophobic was now completely gone.
WHAT ARE SINUSES AND WHAT DO THEY DO?
Sinuses are cavities in the body, or in our specific discussion, SKULL, that are interconnected to each other. Their purpose is two-fold. Firstly, they add moisture to the air that we breathe (at rest, you should be breathing primarily through your nose), and they amplify sound, making hearing easier and clearer. The sinuses are listed below and seen in the picture above.
