User :   Hi.. In mid August I had a smelly greenish discharge. I actually swallowed the discharge and it had a poisonous taste to it. I tried to get it back up but could not. I thought I had a common cold, treated it with Nyquil and felt better in two days. On Sept 2, 2010 I was rushed to the hospital for shortness of breath. They could not find anything wrong with me and stated that it was anxiety. I have never suffered from anxiety and normally in good health. I went to an allergist who confirmed that I did not have asthma but severe allergies. I am now on the shoot every week. I recently went to my primary doctor and he stated I had bronchitis. He put me on bixion for 10 days. That did not work. I started to take a lot of herbal products for bronchitis and that is not working either. I am going into my 2nd month with the same symptom of difficulty breathing, dizziness and minor pressure on nose. Can you tell me another problem?

Doctor :   Certain nutrients have been found beneficial in the prevention and treatment of allergies. Often the intake of vitamin B5 or pantothenic acid brings great relief
Doctor :   This vitamin may be taken in a dose of 100 mg daily for a month. In such cases, liberal amounts of pantothenic acid helps even though the recovery takes several weeks. A dose of 400 mg of vitamin E taken daily for four to six weeks is also beneficial as this vitamin possesses effective anti-allergic properties.
User : do you believe i may have had a sinus infection or current have a sinus infection
Doctor :   it look like a allergic response to me
Doctor :   and the aim here it to treat you the natural way
Doctor :   Lime is considered an effective remedy for any kind of allergy. Half a lime may be squeezed in a glass of lukewarm water and sweetened with a teaspoon of honey. It can be taken once daily first thing in the morning for several months. This remedy not only flushes the system of toxins but also acts as an antitoxic and antiallergic agent. However, those who are allergic to citrus fruits should not take recourse to this remedy.
User :   ok..
Doctor :   quantity of 500 ml carrot juice or a combination of carrot juice with beet and cucumber juices, has been found beneficial in the treatment of allergies. In the case of mixed juices, 100 ml each of beet and cucumber juices should be mixed with 300 ml of carrot juice to prepare 500 ml or half a litre of mixed juice. This should be taken once daily.
