Bit of a daunting thing, isn't it? Uknown territory? But I think I'm strapped with this after ragweed and grass pollen season starting. Instead of my allergy responding to anti-allergen protocols, it's beginning to respond to antiviral protocols.
Itching watering eyes and sinuses in the morning, afternoon, sundown, and before bedtime despite taking spirulina, stinging nettles and elderberry.Sore lymph nodes around cheeks and neck so "something is up in there." It feels like tiny corkscrews doing an angry dance because they haven't had their way. I dont' know if fungi do this dance, but those can blow in on pollen too. I remember candida likes to do a burning hoe-down in retaliation when it exits the body....
I'm glad to make the discovery tonight, but here's the only thing I found on the web so far talking about viruses transmitted to humans from plant pollen. So I really don't know "what" to name what blew in on the pollen:
Direct plant-to-human transmission
Researchers from the University of the Mediterranean in Marseille, France have found evidence that suggest a virus common to peppers, the Pepper Mild Mottle Virus (PMMoV) may have moved on to infect humans. This is a very rare and highly unlikely event as, to enter a cell and replicate, a virus must "bind to a receptor on its surface, and a plant virus would be highly unlikely to recognize a receptor on a human cell. One possibility is that the virus does not infect human cells directly. Instead, the naked viral RNA may alter the function of the cells through a mechanism similar to RNA interference, in which the presence of certain RNA sequences can turn genes on and off," according to Virologist Robert Garry from the Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Symptoms include being more likely to have fever, abdominal pain, and itching.
)How about that......"turning genes on and off" it says.
