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
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
