I must say I'm relieved to know this isn't some rarity. I was told I had PND about 5 years ago. - after a severe cold I developed it. However, it went away and only came on here and there over the last few years. This year however, it's been non stop 24/7 since May. It's so tiresome and exhausting. Ive done the neti-pot, fluctonase spray, claritin, etc. I'm going to try the altering of my diet as per above with zero cheese, and cutting of diary in general to see if it helps. I already only drink water so juices or soda has never been a problem. thanks everyone for sharing thier experiences
Improving dietary intake of the trace element selenium through foods such as Brazil nuts, crimini mushrooms , cod, shrimp, and halibut may help prevent or treat nasal polyps. The potential beneficial effects of selenium on nasal polyps are based on the role of this trace element in the antioxidant system of the body: selenium is a key component of several enzymes involved in antioxidant defense . To get the most out of selenium's health benefits, combine selenium rich foods with foods high in vitamin E (selenium boosts the effectiveness of vitamin E).
