      Have you talked to your oncologist? To be sure nothing serious is going on, and to see what they suggest?

      Stop eating dairy.

      Dairy makes mucus.

      On your grocer's shelves you will find milks made from nuts and/ or seeds. They taste nice. I could show you how to make even better tasting stuff in your home.

      You will also find cheezes made from seed and veggies. I cant recommend a brand because I havent ever been a cheeze whiz. Try some.

      Eat more fruit and only lightly steam or fry your veggies.

      These changes will makes a difference. As you improve, consider giving up meat entirely. You will feel even better for that.

      I wrote a book on how to eat without things that have/had a Mama.

      On top of what I just said, please look up "neti pot" and consider using one at least daily.

      Other than special tea blends, make an appointment with an ENT doctor.

      Are you currently undergoing chemo? Taxol dried my mucous membranes out to the point where I got frequent nosebleeds. Between that and reduced immunity I wore an earloop mask, to protect me from germs and to humidify the air I was breathing and give those membranes some relief.

      I raised the issue with my oncologist at the time. He recommended saline nasal spray and said that the bleeding came from my nasal membranes being irritated because chemo was making them so dry. He also said he could refer me to an ENT, who could cauterize the irritated spots to make them stop bleeding, but I didn't need that extreme a solution. I did just fine with my earloop mask. I also drank plenty of water (at least 10 glasses/day) because chemo dehydrates you like crazy.

      In either case, let your medical team know, and good luck!

      This is ragweed season, and allergy sufferers are suffering this year. If you aren't doing chemo now, get some Sudafed 12 hour decongestant for allergies.

      I had 3 monster nose bleeds while on chemo -- 2 of which I came w/in 5 minutes of going to the hospital because I couldn't get them to stop! I talked to my oncologist about it, but he wasn't concerned. Definitely check w/your team.

      Thank you all. We have received wondeful news a few days ago!! But first, on July 3 of this year, my husband was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer and later a CT scan showed the cancer metastasized to his liver, and to his lungs. Afternoon 6 infusions of chemo and 2 additions of neuplasta? Husband, Philip received a very early morning call from Chemo Oncologist, telling us that results of the second CT scan that the tumor had shrunk significantly enough, that we are now going to see a surgeon on Thursday. We are beyond happy. Prayers please.Update later.
