I'm 47 years old and for the first time in my life, I'm suffering from seasonal allergies. I use apple cidar vinegar on a semi-regular basis. Maybe that's why I've never really had a problem with it before. I've been on vacation and hadn't used ACV for a few weeks. Today my allergies were so bad, I could not stop sneezing. I got on earthclinic ( my favorite site!) and saw the sisters that tried Yerba Mate tea. I had some in the house so I made a cup. After just drinking one cup, my eyes stopped watering and the sneezing and runny nose are gone! What a difference! I feel completely fine now. Thank you earthclinic. You are SO appreciated!
Yerba Mate Tea
I have had chronic seasonal allergies all of my life. I've tried everything from weekly shots to popular prescription medications. Granted, shots work over time but were costly, painful and inconvenient.
I started drinking two cups of yerba mate tea sweetened with stevia twice a day during the spring when my allergies are near their worst. After three days, my allergies were all but gone. Prior to this, I was practically bed-ridden with swollen itchy eyes, fatigue and congestion.
I was able to decrease the dosage to just one cup a day after a month. I drink it every morning, even during the winter months. I am able to go outside and mow the lawn now without getting sick for two days! If I do get a huge dose of allergens for whatever reason, I just simply drink an extra cup and the symptoms dissipate within fifteen mins or so.
I got my sister to try and she is also pleasantly surprised. She can't even sit in grass without breaking out in hives so I can only imagine how her lungs reacte to allergens. She is 90% off of her prescription meds. She still takes one if her breathing becomes too labored from her reactions.
I highly recommend this tea to anyone who has suffered from seasonal allergies. I almost forget that it's allergy season when it comes around, that is until I see people suffering all around me and realize that I'm finally not one of them!
