Stiff Neck and Chronic Mucus

Published: January 29, 2013

Dr. T:

First, I want to thank you for blazing the trail that has helped so many of us "throwaway patients". I believe God gave you this unique opportunity to help people who, otherwise, would be devastated, and without hope with this illness. My question: I am getting better, but I am checked once a month by my m.d. - so no throat cancer. I am on thyroid medication. I do have "post-nasal drip" but how can that cause a stiff neck? I feel as if all of the muscles in my neck are "tight". I've tried neck exercises and a strong percussion massager, but it doesn't last. You said that muscles get "stuck in a shortened position". How would one go about getting these muscles un-stuck? Also - I take a good multivitamin, omega-3, monolaurin, ribose, acetyl-l-carnitine, and isocort, as well as other select supplements; however, I have chronic, non-stop mucus! I took so many antihistamines and guafenesin that it irritated my stomach. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks - and May God Continue To Bless YOU!


I would consider treating the Candida and any allergies (see allergy relief) to handle the postnasal drip, and then see a chiropractor for the neck stiffness once any other causes have been ruled out. The overall S.H.I.N.E. protocol is also very helpful for getting the tight muscles to start releasing.

Love and blessings,

Dr. T
