Hi all your good people out there. As you can see this is my first thread and I hope you can help me.
I used to suffer from chronic sinusitis all my life, but since the BTD came into my live there has been a great improvement in my sinuses. Unfortunately due to a rough time we went through the last few months and the eating of many avoids I got a COLD which developed into an acute inflammation of the nasal sinuses.
I decided not to go to my doctor as he will just prescribe antibiotics which I want to avoid as far as possible.
Since I purchased the Blood Type Encyclopedia recently I thought maybe I must give the advice in there a try.
According to it I must look at three protocols: Sinus Health, Allergy Control and Antibacterial. For each protocol there are a number of supplements prescribed. My question is now, should I take all the supplements from all three protocols which is going to cost a fortune or must I identify only one supplement per protocol that match my condition as the supplements have different primary actions.

Johan, good to hear from you. I am interested tohear from some wiser than me on this as I am fighting a sinus inf. also. I would go with sinus protocols and bacterial....I imagine some of the protocols are for long term action rather than acute. I am not a B, but I have been treating mine with hot ginger tea, vit C and hot water with 2 drops of oregano oil (powerful) and yes, sudafed.  wishing you the best.

Hi Johan and welcome!!

I, too, used to suffer with sinus problems and it seemed that every cold turned into a sinus infection for me. The BTD... mainly cutting out avoids, and nasal irrigation with a neti pot cured my sick sinuses. I can't remember the last time I had a sinus infection... it's been at least 5 years now... and very rarely a cold anymore.

I highly recommend the book Sinus Survival by Dr. Robert Ivker... good overall holistic health suggestions and instructions on nasal irrigation/steaming/hydrating the nasal musosa... all very important in maintaining sinus health.

Johan, wishing you a warm welcome to BTD and the forum!!
If you used to suffer from chronic sinusitis for quite some years, you might want to have a look into these adrenal symptoms. Chronic sinusitis is one of them and it was probably a huge contributor to my now being in adrenal failure. Like you, thanks to BTD, my sinus issues have been mostly non existent since BTD, but the damage had already been done. However, once again, thanks to BTD, I will bounce back faster than  a non BTD'er.  ;D

Whole article is here:

If I feel anything coming on, I immediately hit all the beneficial foods HARD.  NAP has a product called Respiratone (actually it's been renamed, but I think it is still listed as such as well........let's see) Here ya go:
Works very well for me. Also, you might want to keep some Proberry Caps on hand.

I really commend you for not running to the dr for antibiotics. They wreak SUCH havoc on your body! Have you heard of Heallix. It is great for things like this as well, plus a whole lot of other things.

Hope you are feeling better soon. :-)

Hi Johan - from the north to the south :-D
Elderberry sirup works great for me as well as echinea purpura
Ginger,sage or chamomile tea bring me relief as well.
rose hip (Rosa canina)can also be great.
I donīt get many colds any more- but last year I got a cold that devloped into pneumonia - I used a product called kan jang , to beat the fatigue after the pnemonia - get better quick : it contains:Andrographis paniculata and russian ginseng Eleutherococcus Senticosus- so maybe you could find that- it should be very effective for colds and flues as well.

u have hemorrhoids of the sinuses as Dr D calls them sometimes

Collonsonia , bromelain and Stinging Nettle Leaf are key

Thank you all for the advice and great links so far. I'm sure this is going to help to sort out my sinuses.
The challenge though is to get some of the supplements in South Africa. I tried to get magnolia flower and wild indigo today as Dr D said in the encyclopedia, but with no luck and Elderberry appears to be non existent here.

Italybound, I have some of the symptoms you mentioned, so I better look into the Adrenal Fatigue issue.

I start to wonder who needs a doctor with a forum with such great members.

Most of the time I feel the same way. And it's amazing what you can dig up on your own on the internet. A good NP is great to have in your back pocket. A good MD is only good for emergencies IMHO. :-)
