Through my many years of experience, I see that about 50 percent of cases of a sore throat, runny nose, allergies, or persistent cough can be due to toxicity instead of a common cold. Generally, you would be better off avoiding milk products at this time. I might also suggest avoiding bread, or pasta. Some people will need to avoid sugar that is added to, or prepared in any food. White sugar, brown sugar, raw sugar, cane sugar, and high fructose corn syrup are all part of this group of foods to avoid. Some people need to avoid egg whites. The old myth of an egg-white omelet being healthful is an outgrowth of misinformation about lowering cholesterol, started by those MDs who really know very little about nutrition.
Avoid junk fats. These include any hydrogenated oil at all. Avoid partially hydrogenated oils, brominated vegetable oil, any highly heated oil, and any soy oil. Why is soy oil so bad? Soy oil has been heated to over 500 degrees Fahrenheit during its processing. After that, it is no longer a food. Soy and canola oils are largely from genetically modified organisms. These genetically mutated organisms have never been tested for long-term effects on people, yet they are already in our food chain. Avoid GMOs like a lit stick of dynamite on your plate!
The only real way to know what you really need to avoid and what you need to take is to come in and get tested. Yes, that requires an office visit, but otherwise, you are really just guessing. That's why I say "generally" when I make these suggestions in this article. There's no way to be totally sure what food you personally need to eat, or what supplements would be exactly right for you without getting tested.
If you have a chronic sore throat, chronic cough, or hoarse voice that doesn't respond to conventional treatments, over the counter medicines, or diet alone, then contact me so that we can set your appointment to start a detailed investigation into the possible multiple causes of your condition. Via my holistic testing method, we will be able to systematically address the true causes of why your hoarse voice, sore throat or cough persists the way it does with you. Possibilities could include anything from food intolerance, toxic exposure in Los Angeles, metal toxicity, allergies, common immune system challenges, and even autoimmunity.
