Got chronic sinus
congestion is SO bad, he even had surgery for it!
See what she writes:
You have written about allergies and sinus problems. My husband
has both but the sinuses are really bad. He had them operated
on--so full of infection, it even went into the bone!
Well, of course he can breathe better now since many polyps were
removed and the pain is gone but he continues to be full of
stuff and continually blows, snorts, etc.
Could this possibly have anything to do with poor digestion? Do
you have any advice for us?
Thanks so much.
SB: Norma, you're right on. Most people don't even realize it,
but diet, digestion and sinus congestion are directly connected.
Let me explain...
from phood to phlegm
Although mucus can
be a nuisance, it's a normal secretion that your body produces
to help protect the internal tissues of your GI tract when food
It also acts like
a "Secret Service agent"--detecting and surrounding any
dangerous pathogens you might ingest from your food or the
environment and escorting them out.
Plus, it protects
your delicate internal membranes from acids that are both
generated from foods (like lactic acid in dairy products) and
the by-products of digestion and medication residue (acid
So mucus is
actually a good guy...when there's not too much, that is.
The problem is,
many people eat foods and meal combinations that cause a LOT of
You see, the
average American has a diet that is heavy on foods that generate
thickened mucus--like dairy products, meat, refined carbs,
processed foods, coffee and alcohol.
Foods like these
are irritating to your internal membranes, they're difficult to
digest and break down into an acid residue in your digestive
In addition, the
average American meal is next to impossible to digest, including
foods from every group under the sun which puts your system in
Plus let's not
forget that the average American is on SOME type of medication
(or two or three), which creates even MORE acid wastes.
And all of that

of acid wastes from food and medication do more than make your
body pump out mucus.
Being overrun with
acid wastes also lowers your pH in the more dangerous acidic
Our bodies are
meant to have a pH that's slightly alkaline--at about 7.365 in
the blood, and around 7 or 7.1 in the saliva.
When you stay in
this range, all of your organs and tissues can stay healthy and
work the way they're supposed to.
But if you don't?
That's when things
begin to break down. Inflammation is created, then aches and
pains creep up. Eventually disease sets in.
Plus having an
acid pH is the perfect environment for tumors of all kinds to
flourish--and that includes sinus polyps like Norma's husband
system gets harmed too
Over time, thick
mucus generated by food can build up in your intestines,
trapping feces and other debris.
That not only
weakens your intestinal walls (making you susceptible to
conditions like diverticulosis) but it also provides the perfect
environment for harmful bacteria in your gut to multiply like
overgrowth (dysbiosis) can cause gas, bloating, constipation,
diarrhea and diverticulitis attacks.
Plus it can lead
to worsening asthma and allergy symptoms (which Norma's husband
has as well) and an overall weakened immune system--making you

PS: Suzanne has less sinus congestion:
I've been on your eating plan for about one week. I did not have
any major health problems and have been a vegetarian for over 20
But even though I had no major health problems, I did have a lot
of gas which could be very embarrassing since I am over 65 and
as I age seem more unable to control the inevitable noises
resulting from gas. In fact I feel my three-month old
granddaughter and I have a lot in common regarding that part of
no longer have gas if I stick to your plan--thank you!
Even though I did not have digestive problems, I did have
frequent bouts of insomnia and severe chronic sinus infection
which I was able to somewhat keep under control with a netty
pot. But I have been sleeping MUCH better since I went on the
plan and my chronic sinus infection seems to have disappeared.
And last but not least I have lots more energy and I have lost
weight. I sometimes want to combine foods in the wrong way but
hesitate since I feel so good and because I have lost five
pounds and will be down to my perfect weight soon, since I was
overweight only a few pounds.
Thank you for all you do.

As we age, our
supply of digestive enzymes decreases. This is especially
true for people who eat lots of processed food and hard to
digest meals. Foods such as these require LOTS of enzymes to
break them down and over time your body's ability to produce
enough enzymes is diminished. Nothing can make you feel older
than gas, bloating, heartburn and constipation from ineffective
digestion and too few enzymes. Give your body the support it
needs and feel great inside with Digestizol Max natural digestive enzyme supplement. Learn more about Digestizol Max and all the ways it can help you
