Allergic Rhinitis diet

About 40 to 60 million Americans are affected by chronic allergic rhinitis or hay fever. This can lead to sinus congestion, sinusitis and possibly sinus infections.

The goal of diet approaches for allergic rhinitis or recurrent sinusitis is to decrease our body’s tendency toward the allergic response. This response leads to inflammation, congestion, itching, liquid production and risk of infection.

Foods that are believed to contribute to this process include processed and refined sugars, dairy and milk, alcohol and gluten.
