Q: Allergy season is just around the corner and I suffer miserably every year. Is there anything I can do to prepare my body so that I’m not completely dependent on antihistamines for the next few months?
A: Seasonal allergies occur when one person’s immune system becomes sensitized and overreacts to allergens in the environment that other people’s immune system do not react to. Because of this, a homeopathic remedy known as THYMULINE can be beneficial as its role is to help balance the immune system. Taken just once weekly and alternating with a homeopathic form of pollen, it is a powerful combination to “train” your immune system not to be so overreactive. Another option is NATURAL D-HIST™ from Ortho Molecular Products available in both adult and “junior” versions. They are a combination of quercetin, stinging nettles leaf extract, bromelain, n-Acetyl cysteine (NAC) and vitamin C that can calm the allergic response while reducing the symptoms associated with seasonal allergies.
