Allergies-An Alternative Care Solution
Spring is upon us and with it pollen, grass, and trees put irritants into the air that have
many miserable this time a year. While an immune reaction to a foreign invader, such as
a fever to kill a virus, is a sign of a healthy immune system, when you have a strong
reaction to a whiff of grass or flower pollen your immune system is overreacting.
Symptoms range from itchy eyes and throat, sneezing, runny nose, sinus congestion,
asthma, post-nasal drip, headaches, foggy thinking, fatigue and even diarrhea. Many of
these symptoms make up what is known as allergic rhinitis, or hay fever.
You may be tempted to take an over-the-counter antihistamine, decongestant or other
drug to get rid of allergy symptoms, but there are other more healthy options that will
address not only the symptoms but also the underlying cause.
There are several natural herbs that help with these symptoms and with no side effects
and none of that “drugged up” Vitamins, minerals, and herbs are immune enhancers and
will not weaken the body’s defenses in the long term.
Nutritional supplements will work in different ways to provide you with allergy relief.
Some nutrients and herbs strengthen the adrenals so your body can better fend off
attack by allergens. Other nutrients and herbs work as natural antihistamines and
natural decongestants to keep breathing passages clear. Still other herbs and dietary
supplements relieve the inflammation that often accompanies allergies. One of the most
powerful natural allergy remedies available is vitamin C with quercitin. This is a great
place to start for neutralizing histamine reactions and obtaining allergy relief. Other
supplements have also been well documented to reduce allergies such as beneficial
bacteria, like acidophilus. (probiotics)
For a more permanent relief we have used an allergy desensitization technique called
NAET for years. NAET is a non-invasive, natural allergy cure that eliminates all types
of allergies; food and environmental. It uses energy balancing techniques, and
procedures from acupuncture/acupressure, allopathy, chiropractic, nutrition, and
