It’s in The Air – Allergies, A Tale of Woe

Pollen, ragweed, mold spores, pet dander, and dust mites in the air and you have the look of cutting onions.  No need to gird your loins…..there are natural remedies for allergies and I like many of their success rates.


  1. Milk thistle –  this is the herb I use to keep my liver healthy so any allergic responses of mine are usually minimal.  Milk thistle is not the answer for addressing strong allergic symptoms alone.  That said, please consider it as a  preventative. The liver disposes of toxins in the body and when functioning well, it works to prevent allergies, inflammation, high blood pressure, indigestion, blood-sugar imbalances, and hormone imbalances.  Milk thistle has been taken for a range from preventative-daily health to serious conditions like fatty liver, hepatitis, and cirrhosis.  Silymarin, the active ingredient in this powerful antioxidant herb, fights free radicals.
  2. Herb’s Etc. – Allertonic, an herbal combination for balancing the body’s inflammatory and allergic responses of respiratory and gastro-intestinal tracts.  Works to calm tissues and remove mucus build-up.
  3. Any combination of Quercetin and Bromelain.  Now Foods has a price-competitive product.  Quercetin’s a bioflavonoid from pineapple that helps balance histamine levels and supports the immune system while fighting inflammation and allergic responses.  Bromelain’s a proteolytic enzyme that helps fight inflammation on an empty stomach.  Taken with food, it works as a digestive aid.

Hepa air filters have been very successful in removing up to 99% of particles of pet dander, dust mites, pollen, ragweed, and mold spores.  I have 3 free-standing units and love them.

Why I’m not fond of OTC and prescription antihistamines –

  1. Many of the side effects are well-known – drowsiness, dry mouth, dry eyes, dizziness, agitation/nervousness, and rapid heart beat.  There can be potentially serious dangers for people taking them with kidney, heart, and thyroid illnesses.
  2. Taking OTC or prescription antihistamines continually can displace histamine in the body and a certain amount of the amino acid/neurotransmitter is needed.

When histamine is too low in the body –

  1. Arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis may flare-up.
  2. Blood work has shown many with Parkinson’s Disease have low levels of histamine.
  3. Women with too low histamine may be unable to achieve orgasm.  On the positive side, a woman with many allergies (having more histamine) can usually have stronger orgasms and more often  (multiple orgasms – the silver lining).
  4. Men having low histamine in the blood may not achieve ejaculation.  Also, men with too high levels of histamine can ejaculate prematurely.  Too high levels of histamine may be balanced with calcium (from food, not supplements) and the amino acid methionine.



I wish you healthy, deep breathing.
