Hay-fever sufferers dread this time of year. For others, the arrival of spring means warmer temperatures, new life and the return of plants and trees, but for allergy suffers this is a time of sneezing, watering eyes and plain old misery! With the warmer than average winter and the earlier then normal spring, allergy suffers are being hit hard and fast. Unlike past years, the warmer temperatures earlier and the fewer lingering frost nights, mean that the spread of pollen into the atmosphere is at an all time high. Things like grass pollen and birch pollen, that normally begin at the beginning of May, have already caused allergy suffers pain earlier and at a more severe rate.
Giving Allergies the one-two punch Naturally!
Allergy sufferers react to the pollen found in trees, grasses, and plants. Pollen contains proteins that when present causes allergy sufferers’ nose, eyes, sinuses and throat to swell up and become inflamed. While there is no cure for allergies, there are many different ways to fight their effects. I have been an allergy sufferer all my life. From shots to pills to sprays, I have tried it all. From April until October (I have both early and late allergies), I am constantly seen with swollen eyes and Kleenex or two. The worst part is allergies are hereditary and my DS9 suffers from them severely too. This year, I am taking back our lives naturally!

This year, my son and I are trying to combat our allergies naturally. Unlike traditional medication on the market that works instantly, natural medicine gets to the root of the cause. All allergies are caused by an immune system malfunction in our bodies. In a healthy person, when a foreign body is introduced the body, the body reacts by targeting the foreign body and attacking them. Things like pollen and dander are not seen as a threat and therefore no immune response occurs. When the same foreign body is introduced to a hay-fever system, they are seen as a threat and the immune system is kicked into overdrive.
My son and I will be using PASCALLERG® this allergy season to combat our hay fever and relieve symptoms. Allergy medication works by boosting our immune systems to reduce the symptoms. We began our treatment before our symptoms occurred (two weeks ago!) and have been taking it routinely 3 times a day, regardless of symptoms!
Stay tuned as we follow this journey through out the month to see how our bodies are reacting to a homeopathic treatment to hay fever.
