Chronic Sinus Infection
Posted by: Patti
Date: February 25, 2007 1:55 AM

I need help. I have allergies and chronic sinus and throat infections. It was recommended that I have allergy shots 5 year ago, which I never did. I use Flonase every day. Now, I need antibiotic treatment to get well every time I get a cold. Over the past year I have needed 2-4 different antibiotic treatments in a row in order to kick the infection out of my body. Last month that did not work and I was put on Methylprednisolone for 6 days. I am in the middle of that treatment and scared for my future health. I fear that I am developing strains of bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics and at 50 I am too young for that to happen. What can I do to build up my immune system and bring my body back to some level of health?

If you have airborne allergies (tree and grass pollens, mold, house dust, etc.), I have found that responds best to traditional desensitization ("shots" as you call them) and really it responds in no other way, to my knowledge - other than avoiding the allergens. The overuse of antibiotics can actually weaken the immune system. The best method to build the immune system I know of is to detox from heavy metals (which may mean dental amalgam removal if they are present) using chelation therapies followed by the SanPharma Protocol. That returns the immune system to full strength in about 98% of the several hundred cases I have seen. I do not necessarily recommend anything for you as you are not my patient, and I do not know your full story, nor have I examined you. I am simply reflecting on the experience I have had in my practice.
