Hi all,

I have a couple questions, that I'm looking for some experiences to share with me.

I've had pollen/hayfever/allergies, all my life. I also have asthma, which I pretty much have that one under control without really having to use my inhaler but every once in a blue moon.

I have found The blood type diet and did the SWAMI a few weeks back, and have begun incorporating it into my lifestyle, with the big players being wheat, dairy, and corn, and removing them from my intake.

I just got over about 4-5 sinus infection, of which I usually get a couple big ones a year and a few small ones a year too. I'm so fed up with it, which is part of the reason I found this website.

Last week, I went to an asthma/allergist, and had an allergy test. I pretty much have full year allergy's save for maybe December and January.

To make it short, I'm allergic to trees, blooming in spring and fall, and big time to grasses and weeds like ragweed. So with full year round irritants bombarding my body, I can't live in a bubble. I have taken allergy medicine over the years, like allegra, singulair, nasonex, but after awhile I quit taking them since I hate putting pills and sprays in my body everyday. Now the doctors will tell you, you have to take them everyday for them to work, I get that. I just don't think I want to grasp the long term of what all these meds do to us.

Anyway, with my allergy tests as bad as they were coming back, they suggested I start allergy shots. I told them I'd hold off for now. I didn't tell them why, but I had just bought supplements from this website, the breathe easy pack as well as incorporating the swami diet. I'm going to give this a few months and see if any noticeable change in allergies comes about.

Have any of you been in my corner with allergies? Have you done shots? Are you managing with supplements from Dr. D or maybe your favorite vitamin shop? Love to get some feedback on this, because I'm so fed up with sinus infections and not hearing for several weeks, not sleeping, tickling throat, you know all the fun stuff with it.

Thanks, Russ

There is an allergy pack, the ink is below it is put out by NAP it is wonderful, my daughter was having one sinus infection after another and this cleared her. This was a couple of years ago I believe she has only used it one time since, before it got bad.

Green tea is high in Quercetin I'm sure it's a bene maybe even a diamond on your swami.
The Collinsonia Plus is stone root which is for healing of the mucus membranes  and seems to be hard to find in any other brands, I always keep a bottle around.

I've had allergies, took the shots for about 6 months and dumped them due to ineffectiveness.  I was told by another Dr. several years later that while the shots may help, the reason is usually that they take the immune system down so it doesn't fight so well...  

Reducing the effectiveness of the immune system seems counter-intuitive to what I am trying to do as far as healing.  I found an acupressure treatment to reduce the sensitivities before finding BTD, and by following the two together and judicious supplementation, I have been able to eliminate the chronic respiratory issues and heal deeper than I knew needed to be done...

The best I can tell you is to follow your diet recommendations to heal any possible leaky gut and the allergy control, sinus health or Pulmonary protocols as needed.

My husband had severe allergies after we moved to TN and he was working all day outside on a golf course.  He had to have shots, inhaled meds, etc.

Then we both went on the blood type diet.  Within 2 years he was off of the shots and another year off of all the prescriptions.  He also retired from working outside, but I am absolutely convinced that it was following the BTD that healed him.

As further proof, I have a neighbor who is also an A nonnie.  Her allergies improved tremndously while she was following the diet.  Over the past 2 years I've watched her get farther and farther away from the diet.  And guess what?  She's an allergic mess again.

You say you "have begun to incorporate" the blood type diet.  You will be astounded at the change in your health when you actually follow it to a "T".

I was experiencing allergy symptoms like you do, plus cat dander.  I would encounter a cat and the runny nose, sneezing and watery eyes would start within ten minutes.  I realized on my own i'd get sinus problems if I ate too much dessert -- cookies & ice cream, mostly.

Things got much better for me on BTD.  A few months after starting it, we adopted a cat.  I had no reaction whatsoever, and this fellow took a liking to me right away, curling up in my lap after supper.  Normally I'd suffer from that, but I was fine.

Last year I inhaled dust from a moldy hay bale, and asthma came back strong, so I got a breathing treatment plus a rescue inhaler.  But that was an odd occurrence.

I agree with the recommendation made above for stone root, plus Deflect.  Supplements at NAP are 15% off this month, so if you can afford to order soon, please do so!

Thanks for the replies all,

Good to see some positive feedback from you that have incorporated the blood type diet and your sensitivity to allergies. I find it interesting that the majority of the feedback was from type O blood, which is the same as mine and maybe means nothing but just enhances my education so far that Type O blood types have an overactive immune system, so maybe that's why the allergies are full bore with harmless grass and tree pollens.

I also did order and just got today the breathe right pack from this site. It has the quercetin plus, and the collinsonia plus. I had bought stinging nettle from my vitamin store. Also the deflect from this site, I will take.

How often do you all take these for your conditions? We take this stuff everyday, take a break for a week or something or just all the time for the rest of our days?

I now take quercetin ever morning. I live in an area that has pollen of some type all year.  But only take the collinsonia once I feel an sinus infection starting.

When a sinus infections starts.. I start immediately on the Eclectic Institute Stinging Nettle Quercetin and also Astragalus.  I take up to 8 capsules a day and throughout the  night if needed and I take Astragalus with my meals.  

It kicks the stuff right out of my head.  BUT I have to continue on for awhile because if I think it's gone and let up on the supp's.. it's right back with a vengeance!!!

I started getting hayfever at age 3, trees/grass. In my 40's I started having digestive and other issues and gave up gluten/dairy and the hayfever practically disappeared.
I tested intolerant to both foods and I've learned since eating them would weaken my immune.
I have been doing blood type/swami on top of this and drinking green tea and feel a lot healthier than I did on my former diet which included a lot of cheese/dairy/wheat products.
Out of balance yeast was also an issue due to antibiotics, so using probiotics as been a major help.

if honey is not an avoid for you, you could try taking some locally produced raw honey as a type of homeopathic remedy. Had hayfever/allergies in my teens and twenties but seem to have outgrown then thank goodness. Best of luck :)
