Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose mucus in nose/throat, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "mucus in nose/throat" as a symptom.  Here are three possibilities:
  • Food Allergies
  • General Toxicity
  • High Histamine

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
frequent colds/flus
meal-induced pain for 1-4 weeks
mild facial burning/tingling
allergies as a child
dark areas under eyes
craving specific foods
discomfort caused by mold/mustiness
gallbladder attacks
frequent sore throats
high cigarette smoke sensitivity
... and more than 50 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of mucus in nose/throat:
Cause Probability Status
Food Allergies 99% Confirm
General Toxicity 23% Unlikely
High Histamine 0% Ruled out
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

If you indicate suffering allergic/other reactions, The Analyst™ will ask further questions including this one:
Do you have a tendency towards producing excess mucus in your respiratory tract ("phlegm") or having chronic sinus congestion (runny/stuffy nose)?
Possible responses:
→ No / don't know
→ Yes, moderate
→ Yes, severe
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate excess nose/throat mucus, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as:
Histadelia (Histamine High)

Histamine can cause additional mucus production.
