Allergies: You Don’t Have to Suffer

Many people with allergies think they are relegated to a life of sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, itching, congestion, hay fever, asthma, frequent illness and all sorts of uncomfortable symptoms. What if you could increase your immunity, detoxify, and reduce your response to allergens? I have seen this many times in my practice! One patient with a lifetime history of allergies is amazed that she now hardly has any discomfort come allergy season. It only took a few treatments to boost her immune system and reduce her sensitivity.

Each person may need different natural supplements to heal the lymph system, thymus & spleen. In general mushrooms such as reishi & shitake and herbs such as echinacea, ginseng, & astragalus are helpful. Enzymes taken without food, such as bromelain, pancreatin 4x and 8x can help break down old protein toxins clogging the lymph system. I also use glandular extracts and homeopathy to support the body in healing. It’s imperative the detox organs such as liver, kidneys & spleen are functioning well so the body can heal.

A healthy diet of green veggies, lean meats, some fruit, non-glutinous starch such as quinoa, yams or rice is helpful. Avoid the problem foods: sugar, dairy, gluten, soy, and too many nuts, as these foods can clog the system.
