As a life long patient of ENTspecialists, this subject I know something about. The back of the throat syndrome is a combination of post nasal drip (excess mucus) and a minute amount of gastric acid mixed with saliva that seeps back up through the esophagus and accumulates in the throat or sinus cavities or ear canals during sleep. The gastric acid irriates the membranes and the bacteria thrive on the abundance of mucus congestion. Usually resulting in constant sinusitis, ear infections, laryngitus and bronchitus. A lot of people suffer with a symptomatic disease called GERD ( Gastro Esophogital Reflux Disease). Lactose is a type of sugar/enzyme found in dairy products. It is difficult to digest (for most people) and is one of the main contributors in producing an increase in mucus. Note: Mucus congestion occurs in other areas of the body as well, it's just more noticable in the sinus and throat areas. Most, not all, sinus problems are a result of intolerant reactions to foods. Ever had a cold that didn't want to go away? or wonder why kids get repeated ear infections, etc? Eliminate the intolerant foods, you eliminate the sinus related problems. So what Dr D'Adamo says about avoiding mucus producing foods is correct. Also, ask an ENT Specialist and do research in the medical terminology section of your local library or college. P.S. Listen to your body.
