Dairy Can Cause Sinus Problems, Joint Pain, Fatigue & Migraines
On a personal level… Just recently, I realized what was triggering my sinus allergies. Once I decided (as recommended by two doctors, when I was A. Diagnosed with blood in my stool and B. Diagnosed with Rhinitis) to finally let go of dairy, all my sinus allergies disappeared. I could finally breath and experience healthy bowel movements. This is by far one of the most healthy tips I share with my clients on a daily basis. What took me so long to eliminate dairy (especially cheese) from my diet? Addiction! I never knew I was in denial and addicted. One of the challenges any one could possibly be faced with when eliminating dairy is in fact addiction. Of course, I included mindful practices such as yoga, pranayama (breathing exercises) and physical exercise which I feel accelerated the results. Avoid dairy products at all cost and be free from antihistamine medicine, which is what the allergists suggested I do for the rest of my life. Look at me now, strong as a cow! You too can be allergy free…

• Cow dairy is made up of the proteins casein and whey
• Many people can have problems with casein or whey protein
• For sinus problems, remove dairy and sugar and the problem may go away, especially if a neti-pot is used.
FYI: A casein allergy occurs when your body’s immune system mistakenly thinks the protein is harmful and inappropriately produces allergic (IgE) antibodies for protection. The interaction between these antibodies and the specific protein triggers the release of body chemicals such as histamine that cause symptoms which may include:
