Natural Remedies

Does anyone take anything for allergies that is natural. Last night i was out at the park and all the dry grass really got my allergies going. Hubby is also going nuts with the allergies.

Any suggestions would be appreciated

Hi Paula,

When I went on the phase I anti candida/fungus lifestyle, actually all of my allergy symptoms went away including my sleep apnea and restlesslegs.

The only grains that I was allowed were whole oats and whole grain brown rice which for me really helped my celiac condition that I did not know I had. I ate that way for 8 years.

Then when I started adding whole wheat back into my diet I started getting worse and that is when I explored the celiac thing and came to this forum to read more.

No sugars of anykind natural or otherwise and no refined flours of anykind. Oh, the acid reflux went away too. Anti fungals of the natural sort helped speed things up.

I tested myself by putting baked potatoes back in my diet and bam! full fungus is back again. So, I'm back on anti fungal, anti gluten, and no more potatoes. Sure did enjoy them but fed the fungus seeds still there apparently.

Lab tests to induce diabetes and cancer in mice use fungus injections. For the diabetes, they take it from the skin of the potato. I also saw a lab where they grew corn plants with fungus to see if they were resistant to it in potato starch media. So, I knew well the link with potatoes but thought I would try again to be sure! It seems eating was so limited with anti fungal and anti gluten that I thought to give it a try. I'm so sorry now that I did this.

Back to square one....

Paula, my dad has really bad seasonal allergies and he takes fenugreek capsules.

I don't know anything about it, but this is what was recommended to him at the health food store.

Excellent suggestion, can't believe I forgot about this one.

Paula just make sure you use good quality water, not the stuff coming out of your faucets.

First time you do it, do it in the shower, cuz if you're not used to it, you can make a BIG mess........

Also, resist the urge to swallow while doing it if the solution feels like it's going down your throat. Just adjust the position of your head a little. It takes a couple times to get it to where it works right for you, but after that it's great.

Paula :D

You can use lukewarm water and salt. I use 1/4 teaspoon sea salt to 1 cup water.

Try this--lean over the sink and turn your head to the side, keeping your chin out a bit. Pour the solution into your nostril while breathing through your mouth. Go slow and try to relax. As you begin to feel the solution running out, slowly adjust your head if need be.

Gently blow your nose as soon as you finish with each side.

You'll get the hang of it :)

Ok thank you, well i was so excited to try it out yesterday i ran to try it before reading instructions lol. I didnt think i would have to, but needless to say i needed to. Im going to wait til my hubby is home before i try again lol.

Thanks for letting me know you can use sea salt, since hubby and stepson and I are going to be doing them, i will save money using sea salt then always buying the packets lol

Since you said it felt like it was going to 'come out your ears', do you think it could help for plugged ear from swimmers ear..........to help un plug it?

Paula, that happened to me too the first time I tried it. It does take some trial and error to get the technique down.

Going slowly like Patti suggested is a good idea, then once you have the alignment right it will go pretty smoothly.

Hence the shower suggestion. I'm too much of a klutz to trust myself with one of those thing with CLOTHES on....

You don't actually even need to buy a neti pot, they're kinda expensive. I bought one of those huge-normous 1-ounce syringes you use to do meat with? Don't use the metal needle and just use the plastic part to squirt the stuff up your nose. I also just use saltwater.

i also make sure I use local honey and use it often during allergy season, works for me for my outdoor stuff.
