I think I might do better without the dairy (butter, yogurt, mozzarella cheese). I love those 3 as much as I ever loved sugars, breads, and gut-bombs It makes me real sad to think of losing more of my fave foods, but my health has to come first.
I was just diagnosed with a-fib, and was reading an article, actually a personal review from a lady that quit gluten and dairy, and her a-fib went away. There were some supplements she took as well like magnesium. But anyway, I have this awful post nasal drip also. It’s even worse than it’s name as some of you know, maybe Post Nasal Baby would be a better name.
I think mine is at least partially LPR (silent reflux) but also allergies. I have it year-round, but some times are worse than other. it feels like I have to swallow all day long, but it’s like it doesn’t get rid of the “lump” in my throat. Have to give the details because if anyone has dealt with similar, found the answer, I’m hoping I can fix mine too.
Most mornings I don’t realize until I try to make a phone-call, or say something to my little dog, that my voice is almost gone because of the PND/LPR whatever it is. I can’t cough it up, but things like a home-made Neti Pot help a little, steam etc. Sometimes if it’s bothering me at bedtime I’ll either do a few swallows of baking soda that seem to help a little. It’s never really gone, my throat is never clear as you can imagine.
People always mention dairy being bad for anyone with sinus issues so it’s time for me to quit my dairy and see how things go. So I looked for some non-dairy alternative for my 3 foods that are dairy. All I came home with was some Vegan Butter called Miyoko’s European Style Cultured Vegan Butter. There’s a mouthful, and I’m hoping it tastes better than it sounds. 100% Crafted from Plants, crafted??
Any feedback on either replacing dairy with an alternative, or just deleting it altogether is welcome as always. Someone had mentioned Ghee in a very old thread I found here, but I found some at our Grocery Outlet and it was made from milk, or with milk, so I don’t want that. Maybe it’s just half as much dairy, but I seem to do best cold-turkey, just eliminating things.
What I really hope is that the red meats I eat often now, are not why I have this issue. I never was much on steaks etc. but for variety sake, I do my usual pork, fish, chicken, turkey, and add the red meat in now too.
The end, I bet you thought I’d never shut up
