I find that eating yogurt every day makes it easier to tolerate other dairy products. That and plenty of water.

Interesting, but I'm not an avid eater of dairy products so it doesn't really affect me. Thanks for the info.

interesting, but surely it is a matter of looking at what else you eat and drink and taking things in moderation

Don't know about the milk but I drink lots of water and use zinc when I have a cold.

I would have found that interesting - but no video appeared on this page.

I suffer from asthma or allergies, mostly in the late afternoon and evening so need to use puffers. Once or twice a year I get a bad sinus infection ... perhaps because I didn't use the netti-pot on that day. I definitely avoid milk at those times..... but all to no avail because the infection spreads to my lungs. I need to keep my finger on the pulse with these conditions and sometimes I slip up. (Pity I couldn't hear that video)
