Bad news for me though : shortly after this answer I started having sinus issues again. I have NO idea what this is, but I believe it's probably a histamine issue.

Same here - off grains/gluten for 3 months = no seasonal allergies in the spring. Eat a pizza = stuffy nose for a couple of days.

It certainly helped my chronic sinusitis. I breath much easier now and the dreadful sinus headaches are few and far between. I believe dairy was the culprit for me. Good luck.

I used to have sinusitis for like 6 months out of the year. Now I only get it if I have more than a couple drinks or eat something gluten-heavy.

sadly didnt help me out or my hayfever allergies. August was a month of the thickest yellow mucus :-( and antiboitics. It was one thing I was hoping for with the lifestyle change, but no dice. Ah well, cant win them all...

Worked for me. My sinusitis was a pretty direct allergic reaction (particularly to grains and gluten), so getting rid of those was effective.

My chronic sinusitis, chronic bronchitis & asthma have completely disappeared since I eliminated industrial seed oils & upped my vitamin D level about 4 years ago. No more Advair and Afrin. Been Paleo for a year now, & I still shake my head in amazement.

Worked for me. I'm still taking anti-histamine at the moment, but in the past that didn't do anything for my allergies. Now my allergies are "gone" : I still have something stuck in my nose, but it's slowly going away.

Try cayenne pepper : it's amazing!
