I hate Allergies!! Who else has them?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

UGH!! I hate all the pollen in the air. Red, watery eyes, runny nose, itchy skin, scratchy throat, it's all the worse. Who else has allergies and absolutely cannont stand it?

Seriously, I can't stand them either. Especially cuz I'm nursing my baby so I can't take anything; Although, vitamin C and raw honey have helped so much. Do you have food allergies too?

I stopped living in places with dogs or cats. Minimized carpets, and vacuumed often. For some reason, it helped with seasonal allergies. (and asthma)

 

I guess with all the other stuff bombarding me, I was more susceptible to the pollen.

Some folks swear by body cleanses to keep allergy symptoms down. Ever tried them?

I hate them too... and for me it's the worst in the fall not the spring or summer.

 

 

OK ... where am I going?.. and WHY am I in this handbasket??

I've moved so many times within the U.S., always thinking I'd be escaping regional pollens, but I'm allergic to pollen everywhere frown.gif.

Any particular recommendations re. those cleanses?

Every friend who has reported positive results from a cleanse has used a different brand--there are so many out there to choose from and I can't remember the names! I would imagine that a health food store or vitamin shop salesperson would be knowledgeable about the pros and cons of individual brands, unless, of course, someone else in this forum can offer a recommendation?

Ever tried eating locally-raised honey? I tried this after I moved to California and was exposed to some unfamiliar allergens. I can't say that it definitely worked, but I did notice a reduction in symptoms after a few weeks. Plus, it's tasty!

My eyes water every morning I drive in to work and I don't bother with any over the counter meds.  Non-drowsy ones aren't strong enough and I can't risk using stronger drowsy meds while driving my ebike or at work so I just suffer though it each year...and thats just seasonal allergies from pollen.  Cat dandruff...if my allergies were any stronger, it'd be fatal.  Takes a mere 10-15mins of exposer for it to start and easily lasts a whole day.

Just heard back: a friend uses a cleanse called Enzymatic, and while she won't swear by it, she thinks it has offered her a little relief. Here's a link to their site in case you wish to purse it further:

google "medinose" its red light therapy, basically turns you into rudolf for a few minutes a day but the results are stunningly effective! i dont claim to know how it works, but i do know that it does.

 

or use a beclomethasone nasal spray

I'm interested: how do know it works? Do you use it yourself or have you hear from others that it does?

i have (had) the worst allergies, i would sneewe every few minutes, my nose runs with the consistency of egg whites, my eyes itch etc

 

2 months into the ledinose treatment and my symptoms were non existant, this year i only had to use a nasal spray for a couple of weeks due to sneezing but thats it!

 

so im telling you from personal experience its a miracle

I've had allergies to pollens, mold spores and ragweed my whole life.  I have to take benadryl daily and year round.  In the past 5 years I've also developed occasional hives.  Fun times.  thumb.gif
