What Is An Allergy?

An allergy is when your  immune system has a reaction to something that’s usually harmless, it becomes “hypersensitive”.   Upon exposure to the allergen, the immune system releases immunoglobulin E (IgE) after reacting to the offending substance (mold, pollen, grass,etc…) , this is a type of antibody and it’s reason for being released is to destroy the allergen.    This immunoglobulin E  also causes a number of chemicals to be released, one of them being histamine. Histamine is what is behind all those lovely symptoms we mentioned above. Symptoms can be anywhere from mild to severe. Hay fever also known as chronic rhinitis often attacks many people during allergy season.  One of the most common culprits found in many areas are ragweed and other grass pollens.  Let’s get to it and talk about what you can do to help eliminate all of these miserable symptoms and find some relief.

 

 Powerful Natural Relief For Allergies!  Finally!

 

Behold!  There are remedies for seasonal allergies!

 

  1. Quercetin w/ Bromelain  –  This has been one of my favorite natural remedies for seasonal allergies.  Quercetin is a flavonoid found in many plants and foods. I must give you fair warning though, this supplement comes with some side effects you must know about.  The side effects are :  it will reduce inflammation, protect against cancer, and it is anti-aging. Wow!  How’s that for you?!  I like those side effects.  They are far different from the ones I hear on the commercials nowadays!    It is a POWERFUL antioxidant that fights free radicals and the damage they do in your body.  It  shines when it comes to fighting inflammation exerting  strong anti-inflammatory action.  It does need to be in your system for about 2 weeks for you to start to find some relief.  If you are an allergy sufferer start taking this supplement well before allergy season strikes.   It has been said that taking a quercetin supplement with added bromelain is most beneficial for help with allergy relief.   Some foods that are rich in quercetin are:  apples, citrus fruits, leafy greens, peppers, onions, tomatoes, and berries.   Pineapple is a rich source of bromelain.  Use caution with quercetin or bromelain if you are on blood thinners, are pregnant, or have liver disease.
  2.    Stinging Nettles  –  Another natural anti-histamine!  This perennial flowering plant also known as urtica dioica , can be found all over the world. Stinging nettles is particularly good for hay fever.  Many people take it to combat seasonal allergies because it is wonderful to help relieve itching and watery eyes, sneezing, and runny noses.  A good time to start taking stinging nettles is when allergy symptoms first appear.  Again, if you are on blood thinners consult your physician first.  I love this supplement because it shines for seasonal allergies but also is wonderful for prostate issues and helping to prevent kidney stones and has been used as a blood purifier due to its high  chlorophyll content.
  3. Local  bee pollen  –  Bee pollen reduces histamine, period.  It is high in  protein and vitamins and is considered a super food.  I love to use it when needing an energy boost as well. You can start off with taking a few grains a day for about 4 days and from there increase  to 1/4 tsp. a day for a few days and increase another half teaspoon every few days till you are  up to 1-2 tablespoon by 1 month.  You can eat right off the spoon or add it to your smoothie or yogurt.  It is best to start bee pollen a few weeks before allergy season starts. When you buy local bee pollen it helps build your immunity to the plants in the area where you live.  Your local health food store most likely stocks up on bee pollen around allergy season.  It is always in high demand because of how well it works.  I have went to buy some several times only to find they were sold out.  So…… check your store early to make sure you can get some.   Please make sure you are NOT allergic to bees if you use any bee products such as pollen or honey.
  4.  Liposomal Vitamin C  –  This is a powerful antioxidant and immune system booster that also has anti-histamine properties.  I personally have taken 2,000 mg a day of the liposomal vitamin c.   2,000 mg vitamin c can reduce histamine levels by up to 40%.  It decreases the amount of histamine  in the blood by destroying the molecular structure of the histamine.   Liposomal vitamin c  is more bio available and absorbable than typical ascorbic acid vitamin c supplements.  The liposomal vitamin c I take  is not soy based either which is important considering how soy can wreak havoc on your health.  Some people who took large doses of vitamin c have reportedly eradicated all their allergy symptoms just by this one supplement alone.

 

There you have it, four of the best remedies for seasonal allergies that bring much needed relief.  Again, make sure you always consult with your physician first before taking any supplements.  Remember to make sure you are drinking plenty of good filtered water.  If you are not drinking enough water or you are dehydrated, that can exasperate allergy symptoms.  The earlier you can start in the allergy season with these supplements the better.  As you experience allergy relief you may also experience better over all health from the wide array of benefits these supplements provide besides just being natural anti-histamines.  As always, this post wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t add that if you reduce your intake of sugar laden foods that will  go a long way to bolster your immune system and overall health, and that includes allergies.  🙂
