Post nasal drip can come from silent reflux. Treat the reflux with alkaline water, and your post nasal dripping will reduce.
I really need some help, good advice. I am 51 very active in working out in the weight room/mountain bike riding. Today, I am upset! I popped a cough drop in my mouth for the purpose to prevent coughing in a very important board meeting. Within 15 sec. I was coughing, my sinuses flooded my dry nose and mucus in my throat! Needless to say, I had to leave. I coughed for 30min. trying to clear the junk out of my system. I have been working very hard over the past 5 days and the cough drop experience is very frustrating!!!
This is what I have been doing over the past 5 days. I changed my nutrition to follow a Candida diet plan. I started alkalizing formula (Lemon-Bicarbonate-Blackstrap molasses 2xday) Daily I sweated in hot tub 40 min. with epsom salt and ginger rubbed on my skin. Upon getting out of the hot tub, I put on sweats-hoody and sweat another 40min. (I tested my urine/saliva pH everyday; on day one my pH 6.25 today its 6.75) Yesterday, I started using the ACV. (2 TBSP sprinkle cayenne pepper in 8oz. Of water) I need to get well before school starts on August 7th. I also have dentist appointment to extract tooth on Thurs. 7-25-13. I need to get well.
I guess you are wondering why did I START these remedies... Background; I was sick 6 weeks with bronchitis. During the 3 different doc. visits, the doc. gave me 3 rounds of antibiotics, 2 steroid shots and codeine cough medicine. I never got completely well! On the 4th doc. visit, I was given meds. for vaginal yeast infection and acid reflux meds. I said, baloney!!! So I'm on a mission to heal myself by following these remedies. I am better after 5 days of doing all these remedies but I still have a constant sinus drip back throat, I cough crazy when the sinuses goes crazy, I had a sore throat but that's gone when I started ACV. I missed 5 days of working out to focus on getting well. I usually mountain bike a total of 100 miles per week and lift weight 2 days a week. Somebody please help me.
I will continues doing these remedies but I need to see more improvements. Please tell me if theres something else I need to do. CoachBRS.

Post Nasal drip is often an indication of lactose intolerance.
Thank you so much for sharing your methods of treatment!
After having been diagnosed with sinusitis, I've found a similar satisfaction and relief in having performed nasal rinses (with the type of neti pot that is able to be squeezed, and thus, used to control the force of sterilized saline) every other day.
I discovered I suffer from food allergies, namely to wheat and dairy. I ditched standard allergy medication and opted for a natural approach. Though I've changed my entire diet to a gluten-free, dairy-free, fully-hydrated, organic lifestyle, I still find the need to use the neti pot to clear my sinuses. Even with the use of herbs and apple cider vinegar (with the mother), it's as though they cannot drain on their own. Maybe it's just my body's composition, but if this information can help someone like myself, I want to give back what the Earth Clinic community has offered to me.
Work hard for yourself and others! Enjoy your life- we only have one chance to get it right (unless you believe in reincarnation). :) Have fun, treat yourself right, stay active in mind and body, and remain positive.
The Neti pot worked for me! For my excess phlegm that fell from my nose to my throat. I always felt choking phlem and I always had to clear my throat. To the point that it would become to irritated. When to Dr. of course the prescribe antibiotics like always. I took them and nothing, I went back and they prescribe a different, stonger antibiotic and nothing! I looked for a natural solution. Found the Neti pot it worked!! I did it in the morning and early evening. If you need more info google/ youtube Neti pot. Its pretty much a flusing of your nasal passages with sea salt water. Give it a try I'm sure it will work for you! I used the neti pot with Himalyan salt. If it works for you PROMISE to spread the word and also come to post it her on EC! :). Oh yea and not milk this makes phlem worst and also sugary and cold drinks. Warm soups and teas help to losen phlem and honey soothes the throat. Much love Sunny. EC rocks!!! <3
Any cold, nasal drip, or cough has been eliminated for me by taking Oil of Oregano capsules.
I occasionally get a thick mucus in the back of my nose which is easily and quickly remedied by eating two or three slices of fresh pineapple (including the core).
I recently discovered that forced air heating triggers my allergy to dust, creating post nasal drip, and severe coughing. I started taking 50 mg of quercetin for my arthritis and my post nasal drip went away.
Saline nasal spray helps dry up the nasal mucus associated with post nasal drip.
