Sinus congestion

My grandson, aged 5, has sinus congestion. It is extremely uncomfortable for him. We have tried several nose sprays but they do not seem to help. Do you have any advice? Thanks

Hello Hypo

Treating the cause of the sinus is important and in most cases it is due to a poor diet. The child needs to avoid all wheat, dairy, fruit juices, sugar, cool drinks and refined white flour products as these foods are the main culprits. His diet needs to be rich in fresh fruit to eat, lots of water, fresh veggies, raw seeds and nuts, whole grains, some fish, free range organic chicken and lamb. Dairy that is allowed is cottage cheese and feta and maas.

Products to use internally are Bioflora Capsules, Bio-Strath Elixir, Cataro from Natura and Echinaforce. He needs to use these products daily as recommended until the problem has cleared with the dietary changes and the Bio-Strath long term please.

A natural spray to help him open the sinus passages is Sinuforce Nasal Spray. It is natural and has no side effects.

The producst mentioned are available from pharmacies and health stores.

Kind regards.
