Bad sinus issues - gut health, immune system

Sinus problems anyone?

When bad stuff sits, multiplies, and builds in your sinuses you have a problem.

Here's my sinus infection history:
I had between 1 and 3 sinus infections annually for about 15 years or so. No joke. I would get a cold. The cold would linger for weeks and weeks. My sinuses would hurt. I would try Sudafed, Flonase, sinus rinses, sinus sprays, zinc, vitamin C, elderberry, etc. the whole time. The pressure would build and build. My head would hurt. The pressure on my face would kill me. I would inevitably stop by the doctor. He would verify that it had been more than 6 weeks to make sure it wasn't a virus. And then off I would go with my prescription for an antibiotic. The antibiotic would be less and less effective year over year. Year after year I would need a stronger antibiotic to get the help I needed. Year after year my immune system would get worse and worse. I was on a downward spiral.

But let's not leave out my allergies. My sinuses and allergies were bad. In the fall and spring, I constantly had a runny nose. Constantly. My nose constantly felt congested. It was not fun at all. Flonase helped some. Antihistamines helped some. But since my immune system was shot to hell, life was a ball of stuffy, drippy, congested problems.

Fast forward 9 years. Guess how many sinus infections I have had in the last 9 years? 0️⃣ Guess how many antibiotics I have been on in the last 9 years? 0️⃣ Guess how often I use antihistamines, Flonase, etc. now? 🙅‍♂️
