Recommended successfully remedies for treatment of Allergies.

Allergies treatment

An allergy is sensitivity to some particular substance, known as an allergen. It may be harmless to some while causing problems to others. The allergen will not be a virus or bacteria; but it may be a food, inhalant or chemical. It may be smoke, molds, pollen, perfume, formalin, hair spray, fumes from gas stoves, paint fumes, or tobacco smoke, etc.

One of the common allergies is Hay fever; it is triggered by pollens from flowers. A common cause is chocolate, milk, pork and other meat products.

The recommended Herbs
1.Garlic contains quercetin, which slows inflammatory reactions. Quercetin is a bioflavonoid. Bromelain (in pineapple) makes quercetin more effective. Garlic is one of the most powerful antiseptic substances ever discovered. It is also one of the most readily available, easily used medicinal substances.

2.Stinging nettle roots and leaves have been used for centuries to treat allergic nasal and respiratory symptoms (runny nose, coughs, chest congestion, asthma, etc).

3.Wild yam stimulates the production of hormones which reduce inflammation caused by allergies.

4.Nettles (stinging nettles) are widely used for their antihistamine and anti-inflammatory effects. Take ½ tsp. tincture or 1-2 capsules (preferably freeze-dried) every 2-4 hours.

5.Ginkgo contains ginkgolides, which reduce allergies, asthma and inflammation. Do not use more than 60-240 mg of the standardized extract per day.

6.Horseradish clears the sinuses, Feverfew treats migraines and is useful for allergies. Pregnant or nursing mothers should not take feverfew.

7.The following herbs have antihistamine properties: dandelion, eyebright, burdock, comfrey, goldenseal (unless you are allergic to ragweed or pregnant), fenugreek, and lobelia.

8.For excess mucus, sip eyebright tea.

9.For irritated mucous membranes, drink 1 cup of any of these herb teas: thyme, hyssop, marjoram, or lavender.

10.For itching eyes, apply cold compresses of witch hazel diluted in 4 parts boiled water.

11. Echinacea ( ½ -1 tsp. tincture, 3-4 times daily for 1 week) will help stimulate the immune system.

12. For eye redness, drink hot mullein flower tea.

13.The adrenal gland is weaker during the hay fever season; so drink licorice root tea, but not if you have high blood pressure and tend to retain water.

14.Hot fluids open nasal passage. Drink hot red clover or nettles tea.
