How to stop those allergies..

It's one thing to suffer from allergies, it's another to know that there is an all natural way to find relief from it and not to at least try it to see if it will work for you.  I've been suffering from allergies my entire life.  I finally broke down and tested the all natural way and couldn't believe that it worked.  My entire family has been on zyrtec, benadryl, allegra and claritin d we have now switched to taking 2 fenu-thyme capsules and 2 nettles capsules daily during seasonal distress.  This is a great solution to help get you on track.

Finding out that there was an all natural remedy really helped me make the switch and the best part is that the solution comes packed with vitamins, nutrients, is an anti oxidant and can help your bodies ability to digest proteins because it is plant food.

Realizing how important plants are we have gone ahead and started sprouting Fenugreek, growing Thyme and buying Nettles in bulk.  This has become such a great solution we felt it necessary to incorporate the actual plant into our every day meals.

Allergies, a histamine problem?

What are allergies?  What is a histamine problem?

Do you suffer from any sort of allergy, eczema, rhinitis (constant runny nose), hay fever, asthma, hives, headache, nasal congestion, itchy eyes, skin eruptions and many other problems, your body may be releasing excess histamine.

Histamines can cause different problems for different people.  What triggers a histamine response? Dust, pollen, foods or environments.

Most traditional methods only mask the problem alleviating your symptoms, but in fact the problem still exists and is only waiting for your medical treatment to wear off.

Why does an allergic response occur?
A toxic body is more likely to be attacked by an allergic response than a healthy non toxic one. For example, if you eat too many foods that create inflammation (cakes, cookies, sweets, artificial foods, fatty foods, alcohol) or too much red meat (as an example) your body will be busy trying to digest and detoxify, thereby exhausting its resources and not being able to deal with other things (pollen for example).

Toxicity exhausts the adrenals and your adrenals are one of the main glands of your body and an important one in fighting "inflammatory" problems, such as histamine release.

Here's how to beat the histamine release naturally...

It is very possible for you to change the way you live and eat slightly better to have a body more geared up to stopping histamine release.

Imagine a world without allergies.   Histamines are triggered by the slightest stimuli. Stick to the advice below for at least 3 months to give your body a chance to recover and rest. You will see results way before that.
  1. Cut down protein intake, especially animal proteins. Try and cut it to around 10% of your daily calorie intake. Excess protein is a drain on your body's resources. You need to cut it down so your body starts resting and not be in a constant over-active state.
  2. Cut out all dairy, wheat and gluten products.  They are major contributors to inflammation and that can make it difficult for your body to function in a healthy capacity if it is fighting inflammation.
  3. In the morning, drink a full glass of distilled water with some lime or lemon juice squeezed in. This is great for a gentle liver cleanse it is also a great way to start your body off in an alkaline state. Drink plenty of water everyday, the water can actually help your body decrease the histamine release.  Many people who suffer from histamine problems are not drinking enough water.
  4. Cut out ALL artificial sweeteners. This means those found in diet drinks, many foods (low fat/no fat) and chewing gums.  They are all toxic to our bodies.
  5.  A diet high in Quercetin and flavonoids such as grapefruits, lemons, berries, onions, parsley, green tea, and red wine is especially good. 
  6. Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish, flax, hemp, borage and evening primrose oils are especially good as they decrease inflammation.
  7. A diet high in garlic and onion is very beneficial.
  8. Foods high in vitamin C and Bromelain are excellent. Vitamin C is a natural anti-histamine. Eat oranges, tangerines, fruit juices and pineapple. Keeping in mind to watch your sugar intake, as any food that translates to sugar can actually produce an inflammation response in the body. If you find you are taking Bromelain on a regular basis you may want to also increase your iodine sources with kelp, spiriluna, cabbage, sea salt or iodoral.
  9. Monitor your body. Keep a journal so you can mark what you ate and the response you got. This is a great way to eliminate items that may be contributing to your histamine response.

…and here's a remedy to stop allergies that has worked for many:

Go to your local health shop and pick up capsules or tablets for the following:
(if you'd like a good one to buy online just click on the supplement name)

Nettle extract 
Vitamin C

This may all sound like a foreign language, but once you get started and you start seeing results you'll know that you can manage your allergies without the use of medications and give your body a healthier way of dealing when it becomes overwhelmed.

Everyone absorbs differently and results may vary.  However, for those that I know who have tried this they have all experienced relief from their allergies.
