Why Does My Nose Run Constantly?

You shouldn't need to use these all the time!

Hi Tracy,

I got a serious problem with post nasal drip. Any ideas on what causes it or what I can do to make it stop? I don’t have a cold or anything; I just have to constantly blow my nose or clear my throat. When I get a cold, it’s even worse.  But I basically have it all year long.


Post Nasal Drip, Drip, Drip


Unfortunately, your discomfort is common – and a typical symptom of chronic inflammation. Your body is daily exposed to something it finds threatening. Sometimes, this is a food.  Sometimes, this is a household allergen. In the winter and early springtime, we keep our houses shut up tight for warmth. Be sure to fully air out your house at least once a week, regardless of the temperature.

In my practice I find the most typical cause of chronic post nasal drip is dairy foods. Yes, milk, cream, cheese, yogurt, etc.. I highly recommend you try eliminating these foods for 2+ weeks and see how you feel. To get a good result, you really need to eliminate them 100%. Be sure to look for hidden sources in processed foods (e.g. casein, whey). I know it sounds hard, but you can do it! Many of my clients have found great relief this way.  Here is a Dairy Elimination Client Handout which might be a helpful guide.

Dear Tracy,
I wanted to give testament to your Cleanse. I have conducted the cleanse using your routine 3 times over the last 1 1/2 years (every 6 months) and for the first time in 20 years my cholesterol has dropped significantly. In fact, my total cholesterol dropped 40 points from 197 to 152 and LDL dropped 120 to 79. My ratios went from the 4 range to the 2 range. The only thing I have changed in the last 1 1/2 year is adding the cleanse. It is astounding!!! I have always been fit, exercised and watched my diet, but it always frustrated myself that my cholesterol hovered so closely to 200. My cholesterol over the last 20 years has always been 180-190’s and my LDL have always been 120-130. Cleansing every 6 months will now be a lifestyle change for me. Anyone struggling with high cholesterol should definitely try this cleanse and I am more than happy to speak with anyone. Thank you so much!!!
