It's a side effect of a low carb diet, but it does subside.

My dad lived on antacids all his life and was recntly diagnosed with ulerative colitis and IBD. If his lifestyle went unchanged it would have been Crohn's, eventually. He chose carb and grain free diet over meds and a colostomy bag and is doing great.

I had it for eight months until I found a doc who actually cured my sinus infection.

very interesting, could you clarify for me. So your Dad went on a high carb diet and also went grain free? Could you give me examples of what he ate, because I have always eaten quite a few carbs and thought my diet was pretty balanced (protein and carbs). Although I do notice eating bread with this "condition" does really bring out the bad taste.

I'm going to have a Cat Scan on my sinus after all just to make sure it isn't anything related to that, and I am remaining open minded about it being sinus/post nasal drip because I can feel it in my throat in the mornings especially and even throughout the day.

Your post was very helpful...thanks.

NO he eliminated carbs and grain and the digestive issues are gone. Carbs and grain are poison. I also suspect he had yeast/candida issues.

I suggest getting tested for food allergies. The PND is common this time of year, sinus allergies are the worst in a decade. A lifetime on Prilosec is not a cure, it's treating symptoms, of an underlying condition at that.

thanks for the clarification, I thought that's what you meant. Bread does definitely aggrevate the rancid taste. And I agree with you too on the PND/sinus/allergy issues this year...I don't normally have those issues and I have had them this year for awhile now. I'm going to stop eating bread and see what happens

I had a sinus infection for EIGHT months, saw two docs over four months to finally be rid of it.

It's not just bread, ALL carbs. Your waistline will thank you.

Let's remember that grains are NOT poison. It's just that some people cannot eat them (or some of them). For most of us, they provide essential nutrients as part of a balanced diet.

yup, unfortunatley that's the conclusion I'm coming to...but I have to play out all the options just to know that I've done as much as I can to solve this.
