Why do some people have allergies and others do not? I think that is a fair question. Why is it that some people are so plagued by running noses, itchy eyes, congestion and overall not feeling well?

In my opinion you have to go to the root cause of allergies. Basically allergies are an attack on your immune system. So if allergies are about your immune system then the root cause is to work on your immune system. Well doesn’t that make sense? You can treat symptoms all day long but if you never go to the root cause you will never get rid of allergies. Now some people do outgrow their allergies or do they? Maybe their immune system got stronger.

If we go with the premise that the immune system needs a boost what can you do? My answer will never change, you need minerals and therapeutic mineral soaks. As well I would suggest bee pollen granules on a daily basis. Bee pollen is an overall great natural product to take. Bee pollen is one of those natural products that more is not better. Start off with no more than ¼ of a teaspoon and only after you have tested yourself that you can take bee pollen. To test yourself take a few granules of bee pollen in the palm of your hand and gently close your hand into a fist. If after a few minutes open your hand and if it is not red, raised or itchy around the site of the bee pollen then you are good to go with taking it.

Normally I don’t recommend taking a homeopathic without being under a homeopaths care but the homeopathic medicine calcarea carbonica is a good medicine for allergies. As well when I was going to school many of my professors stated that every person in their life time with need calcarea carbonica at one time or another. With that said it is pretty safe to recommend this medicine for allergies. No more than a 30 ch potency.

When you take a homeopathic medicine you only take it as you need it. When symptoms start to decrease you do not repeat the homeopathic medicine. Homeopathic medicine is not like allopathic or pharmaceutical medicine and is not generally given as a repeat 2 x’s a day on a regular basis. Homeopathic medicine is “like cures like” and when you take a dose, if symptoms start to go away you do not repeat until the symptoms show up again.

Today’s healthy habit is a shout out to go to the root cause or put up with symptoms, maybe forever.
