Achoo!!! Miserable with Allergies?
Spring is my favorite time of year! The grass is abundant and green. Flowers are popping up adding color to the hillsides. The weather is warming. Unfortunately for those who suffer from allergies, this can be a dreaded time of year.
Allergens are agents that trigger an allergic response such as pollen from various plants and stimulate the immune system to release an immunoglobulin, which in turn produces a histamine release. Histamine causes the body to flush, produce extra mucous, swells tissue, and can cause eyes to tear; the primary symptoms of hay fever. Other nasty symptoms include sinus congestion, headache, burning eyes and headache. The good news is that there are several fast-acting natural products that can relieve those symptoms without the side effects of certain medications!
BreatheX Allergy & Sinus Support has been awarded “Best in Class” to support body’s immune function, normal histamine production, and relief from sinus congestion. BreatheX contains quercetin (natural anti-histamine), bromelain, citrus bioflavonoids, and vitamin C that work together to help support a healthy respiratory system.
Allercetin Allergy & Sinus Homeopathic is an extremely effective homeopathic formula in fighting the congestion and watery eyes caused by allergies. When herbal formulas are contraindicated due to medications or pregnancy, homeopathy is not only safe, but very effective. A pregnant woman came into the store last spring, miserable with watery eyes and runny nose—typical allergy symptoms. She purchased Allercetin Allergy & Sinus Homeopathic and returned two weeks later praising its effectiveness!
FastBlock Allergy Relief is a nose spray has been proven effective in over 20 clinical trials to effectively relieve symptoms such as sneezing, runny, itchy nose, and sinus congestion. FastBlock Allergy Relief provides a light powder to the nasal passages blocking allergens from creating a histamine response. This nasal spray is safe for all ages!
Our local Vana Tisanes has just introduced a new tea blend called Breathe. This tasty tea contains a blend of organic herbs that assist breathing passageways to clear, expectorant herbs to help ease a cough, as well as natural decongestants and histamine reducers. Great hot or cold!
Happy Mother’s Day to all those special ladies out there!
Being a mom is one of the hardest jobs in the world, but I could never feel more blessed! Happy Spring!
