Just what it says: If cerebro-spinal fluid is leaking through the nose. It implies a breech in the base of the skull. There is a specific test to determine if the fluid leaking from the nose is CSF, a test of beta transferrin. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
