I started drinking milk shakes one time as a possible alternative to beer and sodas. I had quit drinking but needed and craved a high dose of sugar. Not to long afterwards, I developed a sinus infection afterwards and since have had nasal polyps since.

Am sure my family's (many farmers) consumption of milk and other dairy products has been responsible for not only sinus infections of which some were only thwarted by goldenseal/cayenne capsules but also my inertia and whole lack of interest in school subjects, doing homework, etc. If I had known then what I know now, I would have dropped off milk products years ago. I still have a dish of ice cream once in a while, with consequences, and grilled cheese sandwiches which do not seem to have as much effect on me. My younger daughter once told a group who was discussing one of the ladies sons who was not doing well in school, and the mother doubted that milk might have something to do with it, that "If you give my Mother a glass of milk, you had better have a bed ready for her in about half an hour". I wish we could get the schools to quit promoting the consumption of milk in their cafeterias.

Hi. I think you guys are up to something. I went for a walk with my kids and stopped at Coldstone Creamery. I walked with a stroller so I worked hard to get my 150 lb of kids, stroller and pumpkins back home but on the way back I realized one of my nostrils is stuck. Long story short within the next 3 hours both of my nostrils became completely obstructed and I developed fever and extreme fatigue. I did not want to move. I also had Mexican shredded cheese on my tortilla and also on pasta couple hours before the walk. I think all that dairy did me in. I tend to have no problem with milk, sour cream and coconut icecream. I buy organic whenever they have it.

It took a lot of ACV, cayenne pepper, honey, humidifier, neti pot with salt and lots of baking soda to get this outta me. The frontal sinuses headache was intense. Nothing was moving for about 3 days, now I'm much better but I slept within 10 in. from a humidifier turned on HIGH. No more ice cream for me, darn it. I love it so much!

Ice cream and sinus infection: Thanks for this info - interesting stuff. I had good quality ice cream from Waitrose last night and woke up with bad sore throat, and this morning my sinuses were blocked. Not sure its definitely the dairy connection though as I ate a whole baked camembert cheese the other day and nothing happened. Maybe it's the particular way ice cream is made - as one post had suggested. Would never have made this connection myself. Thanks Earth Clinic.
