30 Bananas a Day!

Hey so one of my friends has chronic sinus inflammation and it keeps him up at night with coughing and drainage and he went to the doctor and they gave him some phamplet saying he has inflammation and I was wondering if raw til 4 would help reverse this? The doctor said some balloon sinus surgery (which I forgot what it was called) was the only fix for it. But the problem is, he's a college student and has to pay out of pocket over $4000 for this! Can someone give me tips on how to help him? And also note he is very overweight and follows a SAD diet but has been eating less meat and stuff ever since we became buds lol

There is plenty of testimony on the net of people healing sinusitis through water fasting even though the Doc said surgery was necessary.  I have also read the same in fasting books  But your friend may not even be able to do one day of fasting without serious pain since his diet is not so clean right now.  It won't hurt for him to try a week of low fat vegan to see how it effects him.  There are so many different ailments that have cleared up very quickly for people when they changed their diet.  Maybe get Forks Over Knives from the library and invite him over to watch with a vegan meal. ;)

There are some discussions on 30BaD about this issue.  Do a google search of 30bananasaday.com + sinusitis to find them. 

1) animal products cause inflammation and yes a RT4 lifestyle would cure this issue.

2) Do not tell him to fast and the doctor is wrong.

Most people would rather die than change their diet and lifestyle. Don't want to help him more than he wants to help himself, it will drive you nuts

that last bit is a great piece of advice. he's driving me crazy now lol

Totally agree. Well said

I use to suffer with those same symptoms. My childhood Allopathic Doc told my parents the same thing about my needing sinus surgery. I discovered, by suggestion of my then Naturopathic Doc, and by her suggestion using a process of elemination, about 12 years ago the culprits to my sinus issues were dairy and glutens. Glutens caused such inflammation that it made my sinuses swell shut and the dairy made my nose run like someone turn on a faucet in there. Post nasal drip was disgusting. And all this caused me to have horrendous halitosis. I had to live on allergy meds for years, which only helped a bit and in no way "cured" the issue. Quiting the dairy, glutens, and allergy meds, and then discovering and adopting a low fat raw vegan lifestyle has made all this go away. I no longer have "death breath". I can breath freely and no longer am swollowing and gagging on post nasal drippage. I am not saying that dairy and glutens are your friend's issue too, but I believe It is worth looking into.

thanks for the tip!!! that could be the issue since they do eat a diet heavy in dairy and gluten! 

Personally I suffered with the problem for years to the point I was ready to cut my nose off to spite my face. I have been vegan since 2011 however I am sensitive to all grains including rice - potatoes and onions, even too much cabbage - basically anything that is an oxalate sets me off. Cannot touch packaged nut milks or I drip like a tap. I think the sensitivity comes from being raised on wheat porridge and force-fed milk and also sugar. 

The Cure - citrus. Learn to fall in love with it, also watermelons, baked capsicums, loads of tomatoes and also greens, greens, greens and don't spare the fruit.

Hope this helps.

To me sinus problems is not all about diet but fresh air and exercise also

Hey there,

I've known a few people that have had this surgery and it actually has mixed long term results. Three of the four still have the same annoying symptoms they started with years later. It's probably the unhealthy lifestyle they lead that has brought them back to where they are!

Hope this helps!
