5 Natural Ways To Protect Yourself From Seasonal Allergies

girl-preventing-allergies

From the birds to the pollen, there are many things that may cause suffering from the classic symptoms of an allergic reaction. Millions of people suffer from seasonal allergies, which can result in sneezing, sore throat, watery eyes, or combination of all three. While pharmaceutical drugs may provide temporary relief, natural methods may prevent allergy symptoms from occurring in the first place. Here are five natural ways to protect yourself from seasonal allergies:

 

#1: Diet

A healthy diet will boost your overall immune function. A scientific study done on the island of Crete found that nasal allergies were almost non-existent. The islanders’ diet mainly included olive oil, nuts, fruits, and veggies. The key to an allergy preventing lifestyle is getting enough sleep, eliminating stress, avoiding processed foods, and consuming a healthy whole food diet rich in healthy fats and probiotic-rich fermented foods.

 

#2: Visit the Lake or Beach

Research suggests that pollen levels are lower around open bodies of water. People who live by and swim in the sea tend to have healthier respiratory systems because seawater mimics the body’s own fluids in the lining of the airways, and doesn’t irritate them.  If you live inland, just a few weeks by the seaside during the summer can do wonders for your allergies; plus, it is something the whole family can enjoy.

 

#3: Go Natural

Keeping your home clean is one of the best ways to avoid indoor allergens. Because harsh chemicals can irritate your nasal passages and aggravate your symptoms, opt to make natural cleaners with everyday ingredients like distilled white vinegar or baking soda. Use a vacuum cleaner that has a HEPA filter to trap allergens.

 

#4: Essential Oils

Essential oils have the potential to kill some allergens that cause allergic reactions. Some popular essential oils for allergies include:

Eucalyptus can open the respiratory system, reduce inflammation and allow better breathing.

Peppermint can help to open stuffed nasal passages and can reduce headaches.

Lavender has natural antihistamine, anti-inflammatory and calming properties. It can help reduce irritation and relax breathing.

Lemon improves immunity and helps to relieve respiratory issues and inflammation.

Chamomile is a relaxing oil that works to naturally relieve headaches and reduce inflammation.

 

#5: Rinse With Saline

Spritz a saline rinse into your nose daily to wash away pollen. In one study, participants who rinsed their sinuses twice a day for three to six weeks reported less nasal congestion than those who didn’t.

    Q: Can you please advise if the colon cleansing will have any effects if I suffer from loose stools rather than constipation? Have had issues with loose stools since my gall bladder was removed. Some improvement when I was diagnosed with thyroid disease and began taking Synthroid, but I still have issues with very loose stools and severe gas at times. Can this colon cleansing relieve these issues? Also, I have an allergy to nuts, all kinds. Can I still take the cleansing formulas that include the shells of walnuts; I believe is what it said. I must be very careful because I have been hospitalized after ingesting a very minute amount of what I think was peanuts. Your advice would be greatly appreciated as I am very interested in trying your products but at the same time I must be careful with my allergies. Also I’m allergic to eggs.

    A:

    YOU WOULD BENEFIT FROM THE FULL BODY DETOX FOLLOWED BY THE DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. BLACK WALNUT HULLS ARE SAFE FOR YOU. IT'S NOT ACTUALLY A NUT, BUT THE HULL FROM IT. ALLERGIES ARE OVERCOME WITH DEEP CLEANSING ON THE CELLULAR AND TISSUE LEVEL. REMOVAL OF THE GALLBLADDER HAS THROWN YOUR BODY OUT OF WHACK. HOWEVER, THE BODY DOES HAVE THE ABILITY TO COMPENSATE.

    Q: Please tell me which products will help my 11 yr old son eliminate or aid in his healing of this horrible disease (Allergic Fungal Sinusitis). He was taking allergy shots once a week for a year. He is allergic to everything...grass, trees; dustmites, soy, wheat, dairy, eggs. He now drinks rice milk and I order food online at ener_g foods such as breads, cookies etc that are made without all the things he is allergic to. I want to boost his immune system to help fight this disease. He is on a strict diet and I would love you input on how to help him.

    A:

    Clearly he's toxic! Clean his body out and the problem will go away. Try CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) . Let him drink warm water and lemon juice (from fresh squeezed lemon) every day. Let him drink herbal tea of Mullein leaf and/or Eucalyptus. When he is bathing, drop in 6-8 drops of essential oil of Eucalyptus per bath and add 1 box of sea salt to every bath. Let him soak for 45 minutes or so. He can heal from this problem!

    Q: I am a 42-year-old female and in the last year I've been diagnosed with many types of environmental and food allergies (corn, soy, peanuts, green peas, and yeast) additionally a HIDA scan showed that my gallbladder is not functioning properly (no gallstones) but only dumping 12%. Could there be a link between gallbladder and food allergies? Could you recommend another option, other than surgery? I exercise 3 - 4 times a week and have a fairly decent diet; but over the past year I've gained aprox 30 pounds. Things are not quite adding up; only the pounds. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    A:

    SURGERY, BECAUSE YOUR GALLBLADDER IS DEFECTIVE? DOCTORS ARE INSANE! YOU SIMPLY REJUVENATE THE ORGAN AND THE ORGAN FUNCTIONS TO PAR AGAIN. AND YOU REJUVENATE THE ORGAN OR THE ENTIRE BODY WITH FOOD THAT NOURISH, PROVIDE ENERGY, AND CAUSE GROWTH, REPAIR, AND MAINTENANCE FOR SUSTAINING LIFE. WE CALL THIS "HERBACEUTICAL" AND THAT'S WHAT WE SELL. BELOVED, SURGERY IS TO GET MONEY FROM INSURANCE AT THE EXPENSE OF YOUR TEMPLE (OF GOD). IT IS UNNECESSARY. BELOVED, I HUMBLY SUGGEST YOU PERFORM OUR FULL BODY DETOX AND FOLLOW THE KIT UP WITH A DAILY MAINTENANCE OF OUR LIVER AND GALLBLADDER FORMULA (3 CAPSULES DAILY) AND LIVER EXTRACT (1-2 DROPPERFULS IN WATER DAILY) AND YOU WILL NOTICE A DIFFERENCE. YOU SHOULD ALSO START DRINKING DANDELION ROOT TEA AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. AFTER YOU GET YOUR RESULTS WE ONLY ASK THAT YOU FILL OUT OUR AFFIDAVIT OF HEALING SO THAT WE MAY PROVE TO GOVERNMENT THAT PEOPLE ARE HEALING THEMSELVES WITH GOD'S PLANTS. THE GOVERNMENT IS PLANNING TO CRACK DOWN ON NATURAL HEALING BECAUSE TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE WAKING UP AND THE DRUG INDUSTRY IS LOSING A LOT OF MONEY. THE PEOPLE MUST NOW SPEAK AND RECLAIM THEIR SOVEREIGNTY.

    Q: I am currently taking Fibroid Buster and I would like to know should I take the elixir for the second chakra or should I take another elixir? Please explain a little more about how I can complement the different herbs with the elixirs for the chakras. I am very new to the chakra system however I understand that if your chakras are blocked it manifests itself in your physical body. I also suffer from nasal polyps and allergies. Please give me a formula that will help me best in your opinion.

    A:

    I recommend you take the 2nd Chakra elixir. The elixir helps YOU to open up your chakra. You have all the power, not the elixir. The elixir is just a tool. A closed chakra means many things and yes, it will result in some physical ailment in the area the chakra is located in.

    2nd chakra ailments deal with emotions, sexuality, and relationships. Most women are damaged in one or more or all of these things which shuts down the chakra energy and eventually manifest in some kind of female reproductive area pathology like fibroid tumors.

    In all honesty, you would do well to detox your whole body ? BE WHOLISTIC, don't isolate! Detoxing helps to open up all the chakras of the body.

    Look into the Fibroid Buster kit as well. Read some of our free articles too.

    Q: Good afternoon, I have recently purchased your Full Body Detox. I am in my mid-50's, have allergies and am sensitive to most things. Since I have allergies and food sensitivities, may I lessen the dosage of the Full Body Detox plan? In other words, take the same amount of product over a longer period of time?

    A:

    DHERBS: Yes!

    Is there a way to take some of the pills instead of all of them? Perhaps taking a set of herbs in the morning and then in the evening or even skip a day in between?

    DHERBS: If it works for you, then do so!

    When starting any new program (especially involving taking medications, vitamins or herbs), I usually start out slowly and build up to the full dosage. Is there a way that this can be done?

    DHERBS: Yes, improvise! Do what works best for you, Beloved!

    Thank you so much for your assistance. I look forward to your reply.

    DHERBS: You're welcome, Beloved!
