I am almost 52 years old, mother, grandmother, and have been working with children all my life. I use to suffer with stuffy nose, chronic sinusitis, and had five operations. I suffered needlessly for years until I made the following three discoveries, and have not been back to any ENT for ten years. I saw so many ENTs, and some of them washed their hands on my case. I was even sent away, and the doctors told me "I do not know what to do for you anymore". I also took tons of antibiotics, and of course Diflucans for yeast infections that always follow my treatments with high doses of antibiotic. You must first take the baby to an ENT to make sure he/she has no polyps.
1) CUT ALL DAIRY PRODUCTS OUT PERMANENTLY, AND USE SOY.
Soy use to be nasty, but improved a lot. You can use different flavors, or make shakes with fruits like strawberries for flavors. Use soy cheese, and never use milk again. You can try to reintroduce yogurt later, but I discourage it (use soy yogurt). I am a cheese lover, so sometimes I cheat. My nose gets stuffy immediately, and I cannot sleep or cough all night.
2) FLUSH HIS/HER NOSE WITH SALINE SOLUTION 3 X DAY.
You can buy the spray, or the solution at the pharmacy. You can decrease it to once, or twice if there are major improvements. You must never stop it.
3) GET RID OF THE CARPET IN YOUR HOUSE.
If you cannot afford to do it in one shot start with the bab's bedroom first, and gradually get rid of the carpeting. The carpet was also killing me slowly.
Please send me an email at ____@____.com when the baby gets better, and I guarantee you he/she will. God Bless.
