Going back in time to posts I made on my first Wellness Website! These two blog post will educate you on options for relief besides medications to control or eliminate seasonal allergies.
Eliminate allergies....yes, it's possible.
The desire to eliminate seasonal allergies was the motivation of my change in diet and lifestyle over 40 years ago. After a thirty day juice fast I was free of pollen allergies for many years. Although the pollen season still represent a challenge for me, I have successfully subsided my suffering. Susceptibility to seasonal allergies is the tip off that I need to do a detox, fasting, and liver support.
Even if you are not "allergic" to pollens, they are an irritant to nasal passages, throats and lungs. Just check out the microscopic photos below! Prickly, barbed and velcro like these guys are gonna get the reproduction job done by sticking to everything including your nasal passages, throat and lungs! They get in your hair, on your clothes, blankets, literally clinging to everything!
Both prescription and nonprescription antihistamines can make you drowsy. Remember to tell your healthcare provider about other medications you are on as interaction risk is high with antihistamines. It is dangerous to consume alcohol when taking over the counter or prescription antihistamines. Headache, dry mouth, and low blood pressure are a few of the more common side-effects. Withdrawal from regular use will cause pruritus, itching and burning skin that can last for weeks. Insomnia and anxiety are other withdrawal symptoms.
The AAPRI Group has this informative blog about allergy medications and alternatives, "Pros and Cons of Allergy Medications". Allergy medications can provide temporary relief, but does not relieve the underlying cause of the allergic response.
High Histamine levels are the culprit
Elevated histamine levels play a key role in susceptibility to allergies of all kinds. Our histamine levels go up when we consume high histamine foods and our body's detoxification channels are not working to their highest potential. High histamine foods are meats, fish, cheese, cow's milk dairy, wine, beer, chocolate, avocados, peanuts, soy sauce. If your histamine levels are high from poorly functioning liver and detoxification channels are not working at a high level the exposure to pollen puts you overall histamine levels sky high and you are miserable! Reduce histamine levels in foods to support your body during the allergy seasons.
Colon Hydrotherapy played a major role in my detoxification process. Colon hydrotherapy improves overall improvement of gut health, which many are now finally coming to see as crucial to overall immunity and health!

Regular detoxing is essential to reducing overall inflammation, relieve congestion in the liver and purify the blood stream making a profound improvement in terms of susceptibility to all allergic responses to food, pollen, chemicals. Bridge to Health Seasonal Cleanses are a great way to detox and reduce inflammation through the year.
