Understanding allergies is really complicated, there are thousands of triggers for allergies as you probably know. Sometimes it is impossible to find out exactly what is a person’s allergy trigger.
My wife has fought with allergies for years. We grew up and lived in the Central Eastern United States and were told by a Sinus Specialist years ago, the only way to escape the problem is to move to a dry warm climate. Years latter we moved to a dessert area out West and the condition did not improve.
While living in California my wife saw two different allergy specialists. The first did 50 skin test spots which came out inconclusive. He prescribed several allergy medicines, but nothing really seemed to help. About a year latter she saw another specialist that did 100 skin test spots, took 14 vials of blood and had her take an MRI of her sinus. All tests were inconclusive. Again, he prescribed several nasal sprays and allergy medicines.
Bottom line is that nothing they did helped her. I finally convinced her to try a couple of things which I believed would help her. She did and the results were great… as long as she kept it up she had relief from all of her allergies… The problem with any treatment (and I know this from my medical doctor friends), is that once someone starts feeling well, they often stop the treatment. It’s no different with those who are giving herbal medicine a try.
Here is what we did for her that worked.
First: We stopped almost all dairy products. She did eat some hard cheese and used some “Real” butter, no butter substitutes.
Second: We started her on Dr. Christopher’s Immucalm formula. One of the problems with which those with allergies are dealing is that their immune system is out of balance, or irritated. Dr. Christopher’s formula is designed to do what the name indicates, to Calm the Immune System. You can purchase it through Dr. Christopher’s Herb Shop (http://drchristophersherbshop.com/), (phone: 801-489-4500).
Signs of an overactive immune system include: allergic reactions to certain foods, plants, or animals, or auto-immune diseases. This simple combination of marshmallow root and astragalus has made life easier for those who suffer from allergies, hay fever, and asthma multiple sclerosis, juvenile onset diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, or any hyperactive immune response. This formula also stimulates the body’s ability to fight off infection. (Dr. David Christopher)
If you are having a lot of allergy problems I would recommend you take 2 capsules 2-3 times per day until you get things under control Once your system has calmed down you can take it once a day and see how that works.
Along with this I would advise you to either stop using dairy products completely or at the very least cut back to the bare minimum in use.
