Although the common thought process is sinusitis is caused by a bacterial infection this is actually not the most common culprit. We are exposed to multitudes of bacteria every day, why would we all of a sudden develop an infection to these common bacteria? Sinusitis as the “itis” part of the name indicates is more commonly an inflammatory process, and often actually a fungal infection secondary to antibiotics used to treat the initial inflammation. The initial inflammatory process often starts with food sensitivities (dairy and/or other foods) and environmental allergies. We can identify those specific triggers and show you how to change your diet and environmental exposure to help reduce the inflammatory process.
Allergies come in many forms. Some we are born with and many we actually develop over time. They result from the combination of genetics, lack of ideal gut flora, nutritional deficiencies and environmental triggers. We can’t always fix our environment or genetics, but we an altar our gut flora, nutrient absorption and increase nutrient intake. We can help you identify the individual plan that works for your body.
