Say NO to Annoying Springtime Allergies!

Suffering with allergies can be frustrating and lonely.

We can help you make sense of it.

Springtime Allergy Relief

Spring is finally here and for some that can mean seasonal allergies are here too. All that sneezing, runny nose and watery eyes come from the body’s natural reaction to pollen released from particular trees. The trees most commonly to blame for allergies are oak, olive, elm, birch, ash, hickory, poplar, and sycamore. Allergies are a response from our body's immune system by mast cells which become unstable and release histamine in response to pollens and even some chemical in our environment. These histamines are responsible for creating the inflammatory response. As a result, mucus membranes such as those in the eyes, nose, throat and lungs become irritated and swollen. They secrete copious amounts of mucus in an attempt to cleanse the area of allergens. As always dilution is the solution to the pollution. Fortunately there are several herbs, spices and foods, which can help naturally to prevent and treat unpleasant and annoying springtime allergy symptoms. As always for best results, wild, organic, non-irradiated herbs, spices and foods should be used to minimize unwanted chemicals and toxins.

Here are a few items that will help:

Tumeric is a spice commonly used in Indian curries. Due to its active ingredient Curcumin, it has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Tumeric supports the mucus membranes of sinuses and lungs and is therefore a wonderful and also delicious choice for springtime allergy prevention and relief. Tumeric can also be taken as a supplement.

Stinging Nettle Leaf is a powerful herb containing histamine, which is exactly what the body secretes during an allergic reaction. Natural plant-based histamine helps to desensitize the body to allergens that would otherwise have caused the typical sneezing, runny nose, and itchy eyes well known to those who suffer from springtime allergies. Stinging Nettle can be used fresh, as a tea or as a supplement in the form of freeze-dried herb.

Parsley also raises levels of antioxidant enzymes in the bloodstream.

Onions, Garlic, and Apples all contain high levels of quercetin, which helps fight allergens due to its antihistamine-like action.

Broccoli has high levels of vitamin C and it is known for clearing up blocked sinuses.

Citrus Fruits such as lemons, lime, and grapefruit also contain large content of vitamin C. Vitamin C is a natural antihistamine and therefore a vitamin C rich diet helps in fighting conditions like seasonal allergies. Supplements are another valuable addition to your repertoire in dealing with spring allergies.

Quercetin Plus is a product which blends two ingredients, quercetin and bromelain. Together, they are anti-inflammatory and may inhibit histamine release by stabilizing mast cells.

Collinsonia combines the herb Collinsonia Canadensis with Larch Arabinogalactan. This combination is especially good for soothing the inflamed or congested linings of the sinuses during allergy season. It is best to start consuming these fruits, vegetables, spices and herbs and supplements at least one month prior to the beginning of springtime allergy season, and to continue as well throughout the entire season.
