Tis the season for allergies. But, this year seems to be worse than ever before. It feels like everyone I talk to is miserable with itchy/watery eyes, sneezing, and a runny nose due to the “pollen tsunami” that has fallen on NYC. Even people who never had allergies in the past are experiencing some symptoms this year. That would be me. Walking last night, the streets and the cars were piled with pollen and I could feel it in my throat. Bill had asthma as a kid and has developed terrible seasonal allergies as an adult. And, unfortunately, it looks like Isabella has inherited some of her Dad’s allergies. A simple regimen from Shaklee has ended seasonal allergies in our house.
Over the counter or prescription medications may offer temporary relief, but they can have uncomfortable or even dangerous side effects, plus they don’t really get to the root of the problem-your Immune system. Allergies are disorders of the immune system. Most allergic reactions are a result of an immune system that responds to a “false alarm.” When a harmless substance such as dust, mold, or pollen is encountered by a person who is allergic to that substance, the immune system may react dramatically by producing antibodies that “attack” the allergen (a substance that produces allergic reactions). The result of an allergen entering a susceptible person’s body may include wheezing, itching, runny nose, watery or itchy eyes, and other symptoms.
Treating allergies naturally will help get to the root of the problem and help to actually eliminate them. This is what we did in our house. Bill was on every allergy medication under the sun and nothing worked. He finally agreed to try a more natural approach. He no longer takes ANY allergy medication and his allergies have been drastically reduced. If you’re taking allergy meds with no relief, or for anyone interested in maybe treating allergies with a more natural approach, try this:
1) Raw Local Honey: Raw local honey contains the pollen from the area you live in and will help to create immunity within your body to that type of pollen. You can find raw local honey at your favorite farmers market
2) Building Immunity with Nutriferon :
Scientists and medical communities have identified interferon as being crucial to healthy immune function.
NutriFeron is an exclusive, patented formula, which provides a proprietary blend of four plant extracts designed to naturally increase levels of interferon and provide immune support at the cellular level.
