Ok - so I usually do not have allergies, but I today I started with a really runny nose and can feel that tingle in my sinuses.

I want to beat this...I am thinking 1 tsp pro berry mixed in water with 1 tsp of ARA 6 powder (3 x a day) will do the trick....Is this good? I also have carob extract - should I take this along with the pro berry ara drink?

Thanks.

You may also consider activated quercetin. I've heard good things about it.

why not get a hold of the allergies book and follow the guidelines and protocols given in the book?

I don't have bad allergies - as a matter of fact out has been at least three years since I have felt symptoms. So getting the book is not hugely necessary, but would be a great resource.

When I felt the symptoms creeping up - like runny nose and a tickle in my sinuses, i started taking the pro berry and ARA-6 and my runny nose is gone! I took it just twice a day for two days. I also took a tsp of carob extract just once a day.  i will continue to take it all as i have, but seriously - worked like a charm!

I will consider the quercetin too, but so far, so good!

I get those symptoms more from digressing products with corn in them.  It is very hard to always avoid corn since it is hidden under various names.  I eat out lots because I travel for work & when I get stuffy I blame the food.  It goes away in 3 days.  My worse fear is ear infections especially when flying.  I put a capful of peroxide in each ear, use a nasal spray cleanser, take my Proberry, & when I get on the plane a Benadryl.  Unfortunately the trip I just got back from last night I took a Wal-dryl Allergy because it was cheaper & had the same active ingredient.  I just looked at the box & inactive has corn starch so it is back to Benadryl for me.  I also bought the Walgreen brand of nicotine gum because it was cheaper.  It doesn’t taste as good as Nicorette & has more artificial ingredients.   Sometimes I don’t follow my own advice & read labels carefully.  I just assumed the store brand was the same thing but cheaper – wrong.

Try using a neti pot.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

I use the Neilmed (bottle of saline water/ squirt up nostrils) system that is recommended by my ENT....not as awkward as neti pot but essentially the same.
I take collinsonia , proberry and quercetin to help, also. Of course, no cow or goat dairy or wheat!
Hot peppermint and/or green tea, ginger and steam helps, too.

Allergy season is officially in full swing in southern NV.  I have been sneezing & coughing (asthma flares) for the last 3 or 4 days.  I was hoping I'd see better results & less reactions after eating/ living this way for the last 6 mos., but I guess I still have lots more healing to do.     I do have the allergy book & will get the Quercetin & whatever other supps I can afford.  Money's super tight right now & while I've been applying for jobs, I haven't found one yet.  In the meantime, I'm back to being stuck indoors.

I started the day with a dose of children's Benadryl, as it's one of the few things that will take the edge off the sneezing.  Then, I headed over to WF to pick up some activated Quercetin....I swear, just the one 500mg capsule combined with the Benadryl has done wonders!  I'm hoping after adding a few more protocols (over the next month or two as I can afford it) and increasing the Quercetin will get me to the point where I won't need the Benadryl at all!  Fingers crossed!

I highly recommend nettle leaf along with quercetin for allergies. It isn't for long term use, but it'll get you through the season along with Proberry caps or liquid.

I have really been into honey lately. I am using it with baking soda as a face mask. Anyways, since I have been reading up on it I read that if you eat local honey regularly, it will help with seasonal allergies. Not sure if honey is okay for your blood type though.

Beachgirl,
I feel for you! Its hit us hard here, too, just 2 hours southwest of you!
There was one day last week and one day this week that my reg meds didn't help much at all. The sneezing and blowing wouldn't let up! I wore my mask so much my family thinks its weird to see me without it!
My neilmed morn and eve, zyrtec, and mask are my daily weapons!

Brighid, the only thing that concerns me about the nettle is that one of the side effects is that it can lower blood pressure & mine is already on the low end...  I was excited about the Quercetin working so well & feeling any other reactions, because in true Explorer fashion, I react to just about everything!  I haven't tried Proberry yet, but that's definitely on the list.  

Gardengirl, assuming I'm a nonnie (which I'll find out for sure in less than a month), honey is an avoid for me.  I've tried local honey in the past & although it's delicious, I never really saw any improvement from it.

Cajun, I know your climate & pollen is so similar to ours  ... I was hoping since we got less rain this winter, that the Spring allergy season wouldn't be as bad, but when you have ridiculous amounts of pollen grains / cubic meter of air, I guess you can't really avoid it.  I've done the netipot as well, but I can't take Zyrtec...it makes my head tingle.  (another lovely reaction)  So far, I'm excited with the Quercetin & hopeful for less reactions.  My family is used to me wearing a mask as well.  lol!
