Sinus problems - type 0

I am following the O diet, and love it. My question is for my mom, she's O and has horrible sinus problems. She's had surgery to have polyps removed, but she still can't breathe very well on a daily basis. She also has trouble sleeping because she can't breathe. She's tried all of the perscription nose sprays and medications but nothing really helps for more than a week. I'm trying to convince her to do ER4YT, but she's very set in her ways. She eats mostly avoids and would have to totally redo her whole daily routine. I think the biggest offender is wheat, she eats a lot of wheat. Is wheat linked to mucus production? She eats very little dairy, only 1 piece of American cheese on bread every weekday, no other dairy products at all.
As far as weight loss/thyroid issues, she's very thin. She had cancer of the thyroid when she was a child so her thyroid was removed. So, what do you think? If I had some more info on how ER4YT would help her sinuses she would probably come aboard, but from what I've read dairy is linked to mucus, not wheat. I read the "A" part of the book and she really seems like an "A", they seem to be over-active mucus producers.
So, any ideas? Thanks in advance.
