Sniffing and Sneezing....

Itchy eyes, running nose, scratchy throat, awww yes, it is allergy season. How many of you suffer from allergies, seasonal or otherwise? I do, and it is not any fun. What can you do? Do you have to just suffer or take expensive medicine? Here are steps I have taken to help mine.

One of the first things to do is work on fixing the gut. This is where a lot of allergies stem from. The gut is over run by bad bacteria, yeast, fungus and whatever else is growing in there. These can puncture the lining and then what is in, comes out. We need to heal the gut and re-culture it. I have done this by:

  • Essential oils, oregano, lemon and tea tree
  • Decreasing/eliminating grain and sugar
  • Adding bone broth and gelatin 
  • Adding in good bacteria
  • Decreasing inflammation 

The only problem is, this takes time and I need relief now! Begin working on this for the long run to help the body heal. And for relief, here are a few things to help.

  • Drinking whole raw milk, if you can tolerate dairy. This will help heal the gut, bring in good bacteria, packed with nutrition, decrease inflammation
  • Eat local raw honey, fantastic for allergies, the bees take the pollen and make it a powerful fighter.
  • Eucalyptus oil is fantastic, add a drop or two in your shower, rub some on your chest, dilute some in oil and swab into your nose with a Q-tip
  • Lemon, lavender and peppermint oils taken together help decrease inflammation in the body from the allergic response. 

You can find all these oils here.
These are a few things that have helped me. What have you done do help your allergies?
Saving the world one stick of butter at a time.
God bless,
