Dear John, In order to eliminate any common allergies that may be responsible for the congestion, I would recommend taking a look at your diet. You would do better with more proteins and fats, and less carbohydrates and sugar in your diet. Dietary restrictions would also include avoiding all dairy, gluten and soy products. While I understand this takes a huge effort on your part, it can make a real difference. Click on my healthy diet plan for more information. For additional information, I also recommend checking out the following websites: www.ketogenic-diet-resource.com and www.drperlmutter.com. You should also read the books, Grain Brain by Dr. David Perlmutter and Wheat Belly by Dr. William Davis.
In addition to modifying your diet, there are some natural ingredients that you may want to consider.
When it comes to congestion, I would first recommend trying eucalyptus and myrtle oils. Eucalyptus oil helps decongest the sinuses, has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, and has been traditionally used to treat runny nose, cough, and sore throat. Myrtle essential oil has been well-studied and sold in Europe for more than 75 years. I suggest taking 160-320 mg total of these two oils up to three times daily.
Make sure to choose concentrated plant oils that are approved for internal use. Unlike essential oils used for massage and aromatherapy, these plant oils are tested and “fingerprinted” based on specific molecular makeup, species, marker compounds, purity and safety for internal medicinal use. The extraordinary potency of these tested plant oils allows for relatively low doses, but very powerful health benefits.
