Dairy Can Cause Sinus Problems and Joint Pain Interview with Dr. Angela Agrios, ND My personal naturopathic doctor. Dr. Agrios is in Los Angeles and
accepts office and phone appointments.
Dairy is full of both casein and whey. Those are the two main proteins in dairy, and a lot of adults don’t tolerate either casein or either whey. Casein is a more common problem in terms of the protein profile, and cow dairy has higher casein amounts than like, goat or sheep dairy. Things that people don’t always realize that our food sensitivities are things like joint pain or fatigue or migraines or myalgias, which is kind of a muscle fatigue, and that can be kind of food sensitivity related.
The other really big one, even if you don’t have food allergies, so to speak, is sinus problems. If there are chronic sinus problems going on, the first thing to do is take out the dairy, take out the sugar and see what happens. Yeah, I can almost guarantee it. I mean, I’ve had people with the chronic sinus infection for 20 years, and it’s basically take out the dairy, have them start Neti-potting or using…there’s a spray called Clear that’s saline and xylitol and grapefruit seed extract, and they go away.
