A chronically congested nose can be a result of air-borne allergies such as pollen or dust, which often is related to a food allergy. Food allergies tend to disturb the body’s immune system and, coupled with adrenal weakness, can lead to a hyperreactivity of the immune response in the mucous membranes. Try eliminating the most common food allergens, wheat and dairy products, for several weeks.
