I have suffered from sinusitis for years. I gave up dairy, eggs and wheat and that seemed to help, but still had occasional outbreaks. They increased in duration until I was in a constant state and extremely miserable. It affected my ability to get out of bed in the morning. I was becoming increasingly depressed. I finally consulted a homeopath, and the remedy rid me of symptoms for a period of about eight months. I felt this was significant considering I had suffered for more than 2 years with persistent daily debilitating symptoms.

But then the sinusitis came back after a head cold. I am a psychic and sometimes I get psychic information in dreams and sometimes I use meditation. One day I fell into a deep trance and I saw myself cutting into a pineapple and taking a slice and eating it and feeling significantly better. I then heard a voice inside me say, "The reason why you suffer from sinusitis and from heart pain (recently I had developed heart pain) is that you have congestion from undigested protein in these areas. If you eat pineapple you will resolve these issues." I came out of the trance quite intrigued and went online and found out that pineapple--or actually the enzyme found in it, bromelain--is used in the treatment of sinusitis and is supposed to prevent problems with the heart. I called my sister, who is an alternative nutritionist and told me that the gut and sinuses are interconnected. She said my heart pain was probably "heartburn".

She said that a lot of sinus problems are due to insufficient enzymes and potentially insufficient HCL as well. I immediately started eating pineapple nearly every day and noticed a significant reduction in my symptoms. My heart pain cleared up and furthermore I noticed my mood was a lot better too. I decided to take enzymes as well and I find that this is even more helpful. Also, the raw pineapple was starting to affect me adversely in some ways. I would recommend that others look into the enzymatic approach. My sister says many people in this country are deficient in enzymes (as cooking and irradiation of food destroys them) and that insufficient HCL can actually cause heartburn.
