Sinus? Headaches & Sneezing? Constipation, Nausea, Bad Breath or Overweight? Does Your Gut Gurgle? It May Not Be Allergies or Food Afterall!
Sinus, hayfever, ongoing sneezing, and daily headaches, that can be worse in the morning, though seem to last more months through the year than the Spring should bring, and could have been going on for decades, all could be part of a bigger health problem that is NOT associated with your allergies! Do you also suffer with symptoms of constipation, gurgling sounds in the gut, stubborn weight, nausea, or bad breath? These are all connected to the same underlying cause, and can last a lifetime if never detected.
One single underlying issue can cause all of these symptoms. Often these symptoms have been going on for months, years or even decades, and have been mistaken for allergies, resulting in the overuse of nasal sprays or antihistamines, doing little to help, and harming your sinuses. You may suffer just a few of these symptoms or perhaps all of them.
The cause has been found in the mucous membranes of the entire digestive canal, including the gut, right through the mucosa of the mouth and the sinuses, and it is not uncommon. It is an insidious infection mainly picked up from eating food that has been left out for long periods, or food from street vendors during travelling, though is often only detected in specialised testing. This specific infection has been found to burrow deep within the villi of your gut wall, a very hard to reach place, and has been shown to release a nerve toxin, paralysing the muscles of your bowel, causing symptoms of constipation and nausea, not to mention the secondary effects I’ve seen in some patients with chronic weight gain, fatigue, and tender lymph glands in the groin and armpits. It is rarely tested for, and is often mistaken for allergic rhinitis, or lazy bowel, and so can go on for years undetected and untreated, causing irreparable damage.
Fortunately it is quite easy to address, and most symptoms are relieved as soon as the infection has been eradicated. I have seen patients who have suffered with fatigue, sinus headaches and overweight for many years, watching them adhere to low fat and low carb diets, all with no results, and after treatment for just a few months have improved out of sight.
These are not conditions with unknown cause like many believe, and can be resolved quickly when properly investigated with the right medical testing.
