Natural Help for Seasonal Allergies
If you suffer from seasonal allergies now is the best time to prepare. This is especially true for persons who predictably suffer the agonizing symptoms of hay fever every year. It’s hard to fully appreciate the degree of irritation caused by allergies until you experience for yourself the constant sinus dripping that doesn’t eliminate the burning fire in your nose. It can drive a person to try just about anything to make it stop.
At the Healing House we first recommend improving digestion and maintaining robust gut flora with PROBIOTICS for reducing allergy severity. We also encourage the use of herbs to assist with normal healthy liver function and to support the adrenals in cases of stress.
Next we start building up your immune system. Herbs to use at this time include, ECHINACEA and ASTRAGALUS, which both help to balance and moderate the state of your immune system. Astragalus was recently found to be an effective component in treatment of allergic rhinitis.
We may also add another powerful supplement containing QUERCITIN AND NETTLES before the season hits. This combination has the ability to interrupt the production of inflammatory producing chemicals in the body.
These remedies are often critical in the fight against hay fever. Remember, Support your digestion, liver function and adrenals first. Boost your immune system early and when symptoms occur, use a combination of anti-inflammatory herbs that works best for you. Hay fever is unpredictable and frequently responds well to a natural treatment plan. This may take a bit of work, but the payoff is often remarkable while being completely natural.
