Re: Are our nasty sinus problems and Asthma misery caused by common household items?

Greenjuice is right on. I would add that you should avoid:

1) dairy - esp milk and ice cream (can cause congestion, digestive problems, bone loss, dizziness, asthma, and much worse)

2) orange juice (can make you congested)

3) soda pop (worst thing in the world for you, diet and non-diet)

4) refined or processed foods

5) soy, esp soy milk (common allergen)

6) fruit juice in general and sweetened drinks (they can make you stuffy).

I've given up most of these and feel 100 times better. Look up "allergy thresholds". Some people can tolerate a few allergens, but when they're overloaded they start to feel sick. Eliminate as many allergens as you can. You won't be able to get rid of them all, but you will probably feel better anyway.
