Most people who suffer with allergy and sinus problems feel they must resort to using medications that have unpleasant and even dangerous side effects. For those who may be interested in safer, more natural alternatives, some of the following premium products by Shaklee may be of interest.
3 years ago I’d be hiding indoors and showering immediately if I did go outside! I remember waking up each morning to check the pollen count to see if I’d have to load myself with eye drops, antihistamines & nose sprays that would only give slight relief and then just knock me out. Sleeping with frozen wash cloths on my face, then rubbing my eyes so hard they’d be raw. Using a toothbrush to try and scratch my throat. Ugh. Awful.
When I started my Shaklee Allergy Relief Program I really didn’t think it would work. The first year I still had to resort to some of my over-the-counter meds, especially eye drops. I knew it was better than it had been, but I was still suffering. My body had a lot of healing to do. This was a year ago, when I was using both Shaklee and OTC and I had forgotten to order a new bottle of Alfalfa!
The doctor thought it was a bacterial infection in my eye, but even those eye drops didn’t help me. I was miserable. It has now been two years since I started on Shaklee products to help with my allergies and I can’t believe the relief I still have. Today this is what the pollen count looked like and that is me, sitting outside all morning taking conference calls. Not one itch. Not one scratch. Complete relief. Oh, and NO MORE SINUS INFECTIONS!!!! BOOM!!!
Because allergies vary from person to person, please contact me to find out the program that would benefit your symptoms the most. This is just the general recommendations for a natural solution to allergy sufferers.
TO STRENGTHEN THE IMMUNE SYSTEM START HERE:
Scientists now believe 70% of the immune system is located in the gut. There appears to be a surprising correlation between symptoms of upper respiratory congestion and sinus discomfort to poor elimination in the lower intestines. This is often associated with an overgrowth of the Candida yeast organisms. An increasing number of Americans suffer from Candida when the essential friendly microbes Nature intended to reside in our intestines get destroyed by medications such as antibiotics, steroid-based drugs (e.g. asthma medications), oral contraceptives, and more. Couple this with a diet culture so entrenched in sweets, breads, baked goods, chips, and snacks that are the favorite foods of the Candida organisms. A patented technology that allows the very fragile probiotics to pass through the highly acidic stomach, protected by a triple encapsulation so they arrive exactly at the right location in the lower intestines.
Developed and extensively tested by immunologists in Japan, this proprietary blend of natural plant extracts is derived from pumpkin seeds, safflower flowers, plantago seeds, and Japanese honeysuckle flower buds. Nutriferon supports and stimulates the immune system by increasing the activity of macrophages (white blood cells) and inducing natural interferon production. It optimizes the body’s immune response against environmental irritants and airborne substances (as with allergies and asthma). Completely safe – no adverse reactions to these plant extracts recorded.
For continuous antioxidant protection against environmental assaults, this unique all-natural sustained formula slowly releases Vitamin C into your blood stream over a 5-hour period and provides nutrients from the entire vitamin C complex including bioflavonoids. Thus, it is very economical. It has been found to protect against smog, chronic infection, allergies, asthma, colds, flu, swollen glands, anemia, smoke, poor diet, stress, bruising, varicose and spider veins, colon polyps, and slow healing.
Supported by 7 clinical studies, patented bio-activated absorption system. Exceptional quality, over 340 quality tests on every batch produced. VitalizerTM is supplementation made simple by packing it into a convenient, everyday, go-anywhere Vita-Strip®. Designed to enhance absorption, Vitalizer provides vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, omega-3s, and healthy probiotics—all in one convenient Vitalizer Vita-Strip®.
AlfalfaWith deep roots extending10 to 20 feet into the soil, this amazing plant is rich in trace minerals and protein plus contains 8 digestive enzymes. Recognized as a natural anti-histamine, allergy sufferers report good results from taking 3 or 4 of the little compressed sun-dried leaf tablets … containing no pesticides, fungicides, growth regulators, or synthetic hormones. Other popular uses for alfalfa are swelling, pain and stiff joints, ulcers, stomach ailments, hiatal hernia, water retention, gout, body odor, and bad breath.
Premium Garlic ComplexRetains all the potency of one clove of fresh raw garlic without the odor. Garlic is traditionally used for its anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties. People often take it to reduce symptoms of allergy, asthma, colds, flu, sinus infections, yeast infections, diarrhea &flatulence.
Emphasize fresh vegetables and avoid sugar, breads, and baked goods.
REDUCE EXPOSURE TO TOXINS:
In addressing allergy and sinus problems, a two-fold approach is usually recommended:
1) Strengthen the immune system (as discussed above), and
2) Many cleaning products not only irritate the skin, but their odors can aggravate upper respiratory problems.
OTHER HELPFUL PRODUCTS:
Contains Echinacea, which activates the immune system, promotes production of white blood cells, enhances resistance to infection (viral and bacterial), anti-inflammatory, promotes wound healing, reduces mucous, relieves boils, gangrene, ulcerations, bites, abscesses, and fights candida. It also contains larch tree extract and elderberry to surround viruses and help prevent their reproduction. It’s best taken at the onset of a virus.
Many of these ingredients have shown to greatly reduce allergy symptoms!
Because the brain is the most sensitive organ in the body, many experts recommend eliminating foods and environmental irritants that could create brain allergies.
