How to Take Charge of Your Allergies
The other day, my allergies kicked my butt and then I learned about a few natural remedies to try without compromising my immune system. In fact, these remedies build up your immune system.
“Local” Honey- It has to be locally from the area, otherwise how could it work? I have been taking a tablespoon twice a day of my “local” honey and have been very much surprised. My congestion and sneezing cleared up in about 4 days. Even with the wind howling. Honey contains a variety of vitamins and minerals. Commonly, honey contains Vitamin C, Calcium and Iron. If you check the vitamin and mineral content in regular sugar from any other source, you will find it to be completely absent or insignificant. Plus honey has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, so it is often used as a natural antiseptic in traditional medicines. How wrong can you go there?
Bee Pollen- This also has to be local. It can be used along with the local honey. Pollen reduces the presence of histamine, ameliorating many allergies. According to Dr. Leo Conway, M.D of Denver Colorado, he reported that 94 percent of his patients were completely free from allergy symptoms once treated with oral feeding of pollen. Everything from asthma to allergies to sinus problems were cleared, confirming that bee pollen is wonderfully effective against a wide range of respiratory diseases.
I thought I might have to get some of this, if my allergies continued. But, just taking the honey alone proved effective enough. Check with your local health food store for your areas organically grown honey and bee pollen.
