Question: I have problem of sinus and I do Nasyakarma for 2-3 days every alternate week. The problem is that I feel that the mucus develops very frequently in my body which results in blocked nose and cold problems. I have reduced intake of dairy products (except tea with milk), banana, potatoes etc as I got to know that these products increase mucus production. I feel that whatever I eat, the mucus production increases in my body. Is there any precaution or medicines that I should use to reduce mucus formation, or to excrete the mucus out of my body.

Thanks for your suggestion on medicines !

I have few queries :

1. Is this problem related to digestion, that the mucus generates as soon as I eat or drink something ? In that case should I take any ayurvedic medicine to improve digestion and immune system.
2. Even after having tea, I feel that the mucus comes in throat. Should I stop taking tea
3. Any more food items to avoid except banana, like rice, wheat
4. For the prescribed medicines, could you please suggest if these have to be taken before food or after food.

Thanks !

Hello, In November after visiting gym I ve got stuffed and 100% plugged nose, later developed chest caugh, pain, tiredness, thought I might have had pneumonia.. Took a lot of rest, lung teas, herbal tinctures, veget. and fruit juices etc. Lung Xray was OK. 2 weeks of antibiotics didn t clear it up. Up to now having smelly yellowish mucus coming out of my Bronchi s. Much worse after any kind of small walk, excercise. I am very concerned, it feels like infection in my chest that is not going away. Dr. ordered spirometry and metacholine tests, that suggested mild Asthma. Recommended cortison puffers only. I gave sample of yellow mucus - came out as inflamation only. What should I do next? So far I stayed off work last 3 months, taking care of myself, it seems getting slowly better until I go for a little walk when symptoms come back big time. What other test should be done to find out the real cause? I feel, that if it is not cleared, it will be getting worse over time. I used to do a lot of sports here as well as in Europe since childhood, until 3.5 months ago, and I am very worried about the future of this medical issue. Thank You, Radka

I am recovering from a fairly serious cellulitis infection for which I was hospitalized. When I was running fever I felt alot of tightness in my chest. No more fever, but I still feel the tightness even while resting. My heart seems to beat rather strongly when I move around. I have mild asthma and take medicine for that so my breathing is fine.My question is: is it normal to feel this when fighting a severe infection?

Hi doctor, when I was about 6 I was diagnosed with mild asthma. I only had symptoms during cold season, and then it eventually went away all together. I am now 18, and during the past year I have been getting chest tightness, low peak flow readings, and wheezing. Some doctors say my lungs are clear and its not asthma, and others say it is? What should I do. I am on advair, spiriva, and ventolin. Please help
