Dear Dr. Bedford, I have this liquid that often comes from my nasal. I just do not how to describe this liquid thing. When Its happens I get an unusual taste. I do not not have a blocked nose nor cold or flu. I feel some pressure on my forehead towards the nasal area. Can spanish needles help? Is it due to bacterial infection?

Thank you

Tan S. Y. It seems that you are suffering from Sinusitis. You must avoid the dairy products, as this will worsen the condition. Drink Peppermint tea everyday for a month. Please read the link, given below. http://herbpathy.com/Herbal-Treatment-for-Sinusitis-Cid183

The worst thing you can do is eat milk or cheese before or during your period. If you want to eliminate period pain altogether, eat greens, fruit, whole grains like oatmeal, brown rice, no fried food and no animal meat a week before your period. Try it once and see if it doesn't work. Let me know.

Tetanya. I can help you with the herb for period pain. Take Shatavari capsules, one very day for a month. DO not take them during your periods.
Have a glass of milk every night before you sleep. Improve the intake of protein in your daily diet. Keep your body warm, especially back and feet warm during periods. This will help you to a great extent. Do you suffer from any other symptoms too?

Hi Harriet, walk me through a typical menu for the week for you. You'd be surprised to know that the foods that we eat are responsible for the diseases and illnesses we have. All can be reversed however with a change in our diet.
