The person who suffers
from chronic sinus infections/sinusitis would do well to abide strictly
by this easy diet until they see a dramatic improvement in their
condition over a marked period of time. The diet isn’t necessarily
for weight loss, although it might help – it’s basically
for overall nutrition, sinus and intestinal health.
Chronic sinus infections or even allergic rhinitis
may either be caused by or exacerbated by allergies to any of the
“don’t” products listed below.
Dairy products should be
avoided on this diet. Skim, lowfat, nonfat and 2% milk, butter
and cheese products are just as bad for sinus
infections (link to sinus infection page) as whole milk
and regular cheese because they still contain lactose, which
is a dairy sugar, and sugar in all its forms contributes to
candida yeast. In fact, a candida diet would be good to follow.
Replace with: Calcium-enriched Soy or Rice milk products. Health
food outlets carry these milks, ice creams, cheeses, pretty
much everything imaginable. It’s best to start out with
rice milks and avoid soy when first fighting a sinus infection,
as soy can also thicken mucus. Save it for times of wellness;
then it can become a preventive health diet measure.
For a delicious lactose-free shake VAXA’s Systemex Cardiovascular
Health Shake is a good alternative.
Butter replacements (not regular margarine) should be free of
milk products with the possible exception of calcium caseinate
and/or “whey protein”, which are non-lactose milk
derivatives. Make sure the label says “whey protein”
and not just “whey”.
Make time to eat healthy meals instead of
fast food junk. Dark green vegetables have great antioxidants.
Ideally, 6 small meals, evenly distributed throughout the day
until 2 hours before bedtime, and consisting of different food
groups is a good practice. Contrary to what it may seem eating
this way actually keeps pounds OFF. A diet with smaller, frequent
meals also builds more energy.
Avoid cakes, biscuits, doughnuts, cupcakes
and frosting. Unfortunately, the sugar and some sugar substitutes,
gluten, enriched wheat flour and yeast in these goodies all
contribute to sinus problems. Chocolate candies are also a no-no.
Replace with: Health food stores and online outlets sell dairy-free,
wheat-free, sugar- free cookies and cakes made from other types
of flour (examples: rice, millet flour). Yes, they’re
out there. BEWARE: Low fat is NOT sugar free.
To replace the taste missing from less fat, more sugars are
often added to diet foods.
Cook for ANY diet with extra virgin olive
oil. It scrapes candida yeast from the intestinal walls. The
more candida you can get rid of, the better.
Diet or not, drink plenty of water to flush
out waste. At least eight 8 oz. glasses a day. Purified, Distilled,
and Reverse Osmosis waters are best.
