How do I deal with hayfever?
Posted on 30 July 2012 07:15 PM

I suffer from sever pollen-related hayfever allergies. I am a vegan and have a fairly clean diet. Please give me some direction on what I can do.

Allergies are a difficult condition to deal with as there are so many variables and causes today. Our poor bodies are inundated with chemicals on all sides, and as well, they are bombarded with EMFs (electro magnetic frequencies) that alter our body's electrical systems and render normal substances intolerable to us, thus creating allergic reactions to things we wouldn't normally be affected by.

Your first consideration would be to improve liver function. There are several herbs and supplements available in health food stores. Fruit and vegetables rich in color are also good. Red clover and dandelion are good for purifying the blood and helping cleanse the liver. Any of spring's bitter herbs such as stinging nettle, milk thistle, and even rhubarb, are great stimulants for the liver.

You also want to be sure you're breaking down your food well. Make sure you chew very well. You may want to consider an enzyme supplement that will further enhance digestion. Other considerations would be to make sure you're getting enough fiber and are eliminating well, drinking a good amount of water, and eliminate sugar from your diet.

While these are not directly addressing the seasonal allergies, they should help your body cope better overall and reduce the severity of the histamine response.

Hey Tim, I empathize with your dirstess. Have you considered getting tested to see what you are allergic to? Certainly there are doctors (allergists) who can do this for you. However, if you are dealing with other issues, physiologically/emotionally, then getting help with your allergies may be very temporary. Allergens are best served by a stressed body. You might want to consider covering all your bases regarding good health. My allergy problems started over 10 years ago, and at about the same time I experienced some serious life changes. Since then I've been the pin cushion of several doctors over the years. Should have been dead long ago! However, in their search for what ails me, I've learned to do research for my own understanding. You may be experiencing reactions to mold, plants (which also carry mold), insects, etc. But first check your daily health. Are you getting REAL rest and sound sleep, at least 8 hours a day? The body needs this time to regenerate . Are you eating more whole foods, less convenient foods? Do you get regular exercise, increasing your heart rate to move toxins more readily? Are you drinking enough clean water? Be aware of using too much bottled water, the plastic can break down and cause problems over time. But this is a different issue. The real solution is to take charge of your health, listen to your body, chart problems and solutions, and prayer. Don't forget God. When we turn our back on Him, how can He help us? He wants us voluntarily, not by force. God Bless.
