Are Allergies Bothering You?

Allergies are essentially an attack on the immune system. Modern medicine has proven ineffective at treating it as with most illnesses because it is based on drugs and machines. Not to mention they provide "treatments" that are not attainable due to cost. They do not address the root cause of what causes allergies in the first place. As a rule of thumb, stay away from anything that is FDA-approved. They are political hacks for the drug companies, not scientists or doctors.

Some natural supplements that help are Vitamin A, B12 and Omega-3 Fatty Acids. Ginger and Eyebright also work well. Another reason people have so much trouble with allergies is likely due to a deficiency in magnesium (found in spinach, pinto beans) or zinc (such as chicken or turkey).

You can try any of these or a combination for treating allergies:
fruit juices, except citrus
brown or white rice
White fish: halibut, sole, swordfish; salmon is rich in Omega-3 (no shellfish)
almonds, walnuts or sunflower seeds
fresh garlic
cayenne pepper
local honey
colon and liver detox supplements
drink lots of water

If you really have it in bad for allergies, for maximum effectiveness, it is best to start on a program of taking or eating several of these on a regular basis by no later than mid-winter (early to mid February) so you can have time to build up your immunity.
