Address Dehydration

Hello,

There is no magic number that can be said. as an example, my wife drinks 6-8 glasses a day while I drink 2-3. You drink what you feel. Just remember that if you drink dehydrating drinks, you are taking out what you put in. Monitor what you drink that is dehydrating, and as a general rule drink 1 glass of water for 1 cup of coffee just to break even. Also look into your diet. Some foods require more water internally to aid in digestion than others. Also look at physical exertions. Do you ride bikes, exercise, or walk a lot? Do you currently have any medical conditions? And medications? These are all factors to consider. But, if you feel thirsty, drink water. You can never really go wrong drinking water as long as you don't overdo it.

As for allergies, even seasonal allergies, we found in research and personal experience that they are very dependent on diet. Every year in the fall for 2-3 weeks I would get a bit phlemy and a bit itchy here in Northern Europe. Looked into my diet, made a change, and the past 2 years has been non existent. Also for joint pain, tremendous amount of research has indicted that joint pain unrelated to injury, can be helped/cured/fixed via exercise. Mild to moderate exercise alleviates most non-injury related or condition specific joint pain. Adding natural anti inflammation ingredients like Turmeric, Cinnamon, Ginger help wonderfully.

I may have over answered this post as I noticed just now you were simply asking about water consumption! And that the allergy, joint was just the thread you were on! Lol, my bad! But maybe someone will benefit from thsi long winded answer to a simple question!

I would suggest using Redmond's Real Salt, which is unrefined and packed with minerals. Better for you than theH imalayan pink salt.

It occurred tome that sneezing = histamine = dehydration and, so, thought that perhaps the 2 cup cure for indigestion and headache might work for that and, SO, to make a long story short, drinking a large glass of water stopped both the sneezing and the running nose.

For one who is forever telling people to hydrate, when I get busy, I don't. ROFL! I'm often dehydrated. Not to the critical degree that got me interested in hydration in the first place but the body DOES slap me upside the head to remind me. Whether with that "Oh no! " approach of indigestion or a headache or, duh, SNEEZING!

I had an allergic reaction 2 days ago - the first I've had in a long time. I was struggling to breathe, but I remembered that drinking water had alleviated other reactions I'd had some years back, so I drank at least half a liter of water & took a pinch of salt.

It all calmed down very quickly.

I recognise that I have been very dehydrated for a long time so have started implementing the Water Cures protocol as per their website. I do have the book ‘Your Body's Many Cries for Water' & must dig it out & read it again to remind myself.

I did go through a period of drinking 2-3 liters of water daily, some time ago, but was not taking any salt. It didn't seem to make much difference. I was also pretty low in Potassium back then, but now eat a mostly plant-based diet, with quite a bit of raw food so do get more potassium now.

The unrefined salt is needed to provide electrolytes & trace minerals so the body can use the water properly. So much improvement can be gained when the body is properly hydrated.

Echinacea, Goldenseal
Posted by beverly (Texas) on 04/09/2022

"Can I take Echinacea and goldenseal for a long period of time together?

Even though most natural herbs are ideal to use for extended periods of time, you should not take Echinacea and goldenseal for more than six weeks at a time."

Hi from Vancouver island,

I also am allergic to high fructose corn syrup, my nose can run like a tap when I cheat, it's best to totally eliminate it.

Ever since increasing meat and fat intake, and decreasing carbs and drastically reducing sugar, my pollen allergies have almost gone away completely. Apparently, living in a state of ketosis (burning fat instead of sugar) is key to having higher ketones and less allergic sensitivity.

I have posted about nettle many times in the past. I have used it for my children for allergies for years. My allergies this spring have been very bad. I think having an indoor cat this year has really aggravated my allergies in general. But this cat is part of the family. If she jumps in my lap my nose starts running. We did get a HEPA filter for our central air/heat unit. And I started to take nettle. I take once capsule morning and evening. This reduces my symptoms at least 90%. ~Mama to Many~


Apple Cider Vinegar Spray

I did the apple cider vinegar nasal spray with a small glass bottle spray (what I had on hand for essential oils) and it provided instantaneous relief! I was sneezing constantly and had a runny itchy nose. First spray I didn't spray all the way inside per nose but still provided instant relief. I inhaled a bit then tried a second time aiming higher I did feel a sting both times. But it was worth it I felt I couldn't handle these allergies anymore. Haha it's such a difference. My nose is calm it's not runny anymore and I'm not sneezing. This spray worked for me. Developed allergies after deep cleaning the room and cleaning up any dust.

If my problem had been averted at first sign, it would have averted all the other problems I have been facing. I say start low dose and slow so you don't have a healing crisis. In 2010, every direction I turned I got more bad health news and I was in pain all day every day. The days felt like Ground Hog Day. Repeating the same problems day after day and then I would tell my prayer partner and she would pray. I read books, a lot of books, at the library and found the water book but wasn't going to read it because I drank a lot of water already. I avoided salt and fats because they were bad for you. Little did I know I was killing myself and creating a long drawn out nightmare. Read the link below this one Keep reading, keep learning, keep applying wisdom. Pray and don't quit when your answer doesn't come the way you expect or in the time you hoped it would. Lean in and Trust God loves you and is working it all out for the greatest Good. Bless you, Charity

Hi Charity, what was your protocol that you took that helped? Did you simply drink more water with sea salt added?

Yes, I read Dr. Batmanghelidj's books on water and salt mineral balance and he said that histamine was a warning shot across the bow that the body was out of balance. I was starting his program after rupturing L-5 and a neighbor said her peonies were in bloom. I loved them but gave me bad headaches in short time and had to see them in vase through patio door. After the salt and water, I could not smell them and thought something was wrong with her flowers. She let me have them every year when they bloomed.

Next day I got water /minerals out of balance and had to put vase of flowers on porch, pounding headache. Proved to me Batman was right on. So I let as many people as I can hear this information because I used to get three allergy shots every other day for over a year and was allergic to everything.

Sick people go to hospital and get saline IV and most go home fine. Most meds have anti histamine in them. Salt and water are natural anti histamine. Any mineral has a balancing mineral. Iodine lower selenium, selenium lowers iodine. Salt lowers potassium, potassium lowers salt. Zinc lowers copper, copper lowers zinc. Etc. Water lowers salt minerals.

The body will HOARD what it has become deficient in for a short time until there is a steady supply of it and so.....when you finally get some it can feel like it was bad as your ankles swell if you are dehydrated and take too much salt or water....

Batmanghelidj books woke me up and I am not allergic or having histamine rashes, sinus, lung, mental, emotional, colds, dry sinus cavity, horrible dandruff, psoriasis, digestion problems, or you can just go down this huge list of sick and ick off my bucket list that I overcame. Praise the Lord for information that sets us free.

Charity just posted these words on the New EC site: "stress causes dehydration which causes histamine to be released". Hmmmmm, taking this a step further, could dehydration be a co-cause of a hay fever attack?? I wonder.

Having started drinking more water recently (mainly boiled tap water), the hay fever attacks HAVE reduced significantly. I wonder about that. If so, it's an easy way to feel more comfortable!

Food Allergies and Hay fever Allergies.

I treated myself after viewing Youtube videos of N.A.E.T, (Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Treatment). After performing this procedure to myslef using a muscle massager on key accupunture points of my body, I am almost free of tree pollen allergies. I am no longer allergic to salt (which used to cause large blisters on my tongue when I ate chips and other salty snacks), and I am only slightly affected by dust. I used to be off the charts with allergic reactions to these 3 things. Since I am allergic to chocolate and vitamin C, I will be addressing those next. Awesomely easy and very effective.

If I increase treatments fo the tree pollen and dust I believe I will be fully cured. But it takes a number of treatements, and I was anxious to free myself of other reactive items in my life. I'll return to tree pollen and dust late in the year. I read that this same treatment helps those with autism as well. It has restored sight, reduced pain and other heartbreaking effects from autism that we had no idea they were suffering from...because they were really victims of allergies.

My daughter is experiencing some allergy symptoms, mostly a runny nose and "sneezy" feeling.

I had her take nettle tincture that I made a few months ago. I usually put a dropper full into a couple of ounces of water, but twice today she just put a dropperful (about 1/4 t.) into her mouth without diluting it. She held in in her mouth for a minute.

Her relief was nearly instant. She did take several doses today and will probably continue for a while.

We have usually used capsules and they work well, but not as fast as the tincture worked today.

I have just started taking 1 tablespoon of ACV with 1/2 teaspoon baking soda mixed together with a glass of water 3 times a day and have found my sinuses and my eyes are no longer a problem with my allergy symptoms... Thank you Earth Clinic!!!


Vaseline Coated Inside the Nose
Posted by Michael (Toronto, Ontario) on 05/18/2017

Whether something is a petroleum product or not says nothing about its safety. Petroleum jelly is pretty inert and is safe, even for use in your nose. If you are concerned about the purity of your petroleum jelly, that's a different problem. In such a case, simply stick with Vaseline brand.

I get sick with allergy with milk or dairy product. I used like almond or coconut milk or coffee milk. I have no problem. There's also goat milk or kerfir as well. I tried them out n know what helps n what not. Also it's important to drink water before meals n 8 times a day. Body needs water daily. To keep your lung open like asthma. I had asthma bad for three years n died twice. Later, I learn ACV really helps! With lemon n honey. I drink it hot n it took time to get better. Since I didn't realized I had severe sinus infection. I also bought apple juice n I always spit out a lot of mucous n felt better. Dad told me allergy runs in family. Right now I'm working on experiment with cucumber, tumeric, garlic, and ginger to try it out. Apple Cider Vinegar is awesome for sure - if ur condition is worse I would start 2 tbs with raw honey n lemon in cup of hot water anytime u need it. I did that when I was very ill. N also black plain coffee every morning one or two. Then I start walking n it helps my lung strong. Walking is amazing. Someone mentioned about in the air due weather n I don't remember but can look up website about weather issue what time good to walk. Or go ymca. I done a lot to take care of myself. Don't forget check filter to ac/ heat cuz it gets dirty easily due to some season.

Cutting out dairy and gluten is good idea since they cross react. Sugar is another one that should be avoided.


Nettle and Horseradish Tincture

Dear Shelly,

Thanks for sharing! We too love nettle for allergies. I think when it is used long term it is healing. I have never heard of using horseradish with it. I will have to try that!! I appreciate your clear instructions too!

Nettle and Horseradish Tincture

I use a tincture that I make of Stinging Nettle Tea from traditional medicinal. I use all 16 of the bags in a 32 Canning jars. I then add about an 8th of a cup of horseradish powder. I pour Brandy, I don't use Vodka since it gags me. I fill the jar to the bottom of the Rings. I stick this in my dark cupboard after I have shaken it so that it is all mixed together. I shake it daily for 2 weeks.

I take a tsp in a 16 Oz glass of water and ice and as soon as I first sip my sinus clear, my mold caused frog voice is gone. I use it for seasonal allergies, as well as our mobile home had serious mold issues that we have removed, and I used it to help with my severe mold allergy.

I original bought Simpliers Nettle and Radish tincture for many years since it was readily available in Sonoma County CA where they are based and where I grew up. After moving to Northern NV last year, I could not find it anywhere and was upset since I never paid more then $5.99 for an Oz. The only tincture I could locate was at Whole Foods at $15.99 an Oz. Not the same brand. I began making my own this past Springs after coming home from a month in a hospital and having been hit by a car as a pedestrian. My hospital room had moldy ceiling tiles, I was given meds I'm allergic to, was given a bi-polar med when I'm not nor have ever been bipolar.

It's very simple and very effective. I don't use a dropper since it isn't big enough in the beginning of treating my allergies. I do it every few hours as I develop symptoms. I finally after a week I become able to go much longer in between doses. With seasonal allergies, 2-3 weeks usually did me until the following year.

I've been using nettle capsules for years for seasonal allergies. Before I started using it, I literally hated spring and fall. Now, when my eyes get scratchy, I get stuffed up or my ears itch way down inside, I take a nettle capsule. I don't hate spring and fall anymore. It's the one thing I consistently stay with.


Zinc
Posted by Misty (Indiana, Usa) on 05/04/2016

I've recently had an increase in allergies, which I've read could be related to copper toxicity. Note that vegetarians are particularly susceptible, as most zinc-rich vegetarian foods are also high in copper. High-zinc/low-copper foods are mainly animal products, which I haven't been eating much of lately! Sure enough, I was eating a lot of copper-rich foods and taking copper through my B-complex and multivitamin!

Well, I reduced those supplements and added a 50mg chelated zinc tablet. My skin is less dry, is clearing up, and I have more energy! I also have noticed an increase in libido, which apparently zinc has been known to do.

I'm kinda surprised not to see any comments about cutting dairy for allergies. I was allergy free most of my life, til one day at about 33, I got hit with all of them at the same time...oh my God, I was in misery, itchy eyes, runny nose, sneezing, stuffy nose...it took me many many years to even consider it was dairy. So I decided to try an experiment and quit all dairy, no milk, no ice cream, etc, I was done for now. Within a few months, I noticed my allergies subsiding. I had been a dairy junkie, more cheeses than anything, bacon egg cheese bicuits for breakfask, cheeseburger or cheese pizza for lunch, string cheese for snacks etc. So I no longer need over the counter meds to deal with all the stupid allergy stuff save, eye drops ONLY for the springtime...but for nothing else. I probably had no dairy for almost 2yrs. I think my body was over saturated with something from the cheese itself...don't know what, but that's my theory, since I was allergy free for so long, them BAM, my body revolted and had a fit!

So, try it, give up all dairy for a while and see if that helps the symptoms, you'll at least see a decrease in mucus if nothing else. But I hope for overall better results than that.
