My allergies were the worst ever this spring so after reading about cures on your website I decided to try ACV and cayenne. Not only did it eliminate my allergy symptoms, but the unexpected side benefits are great! My chronically runny nose -gone, constant throat clearing -gone, red rimmed eyes -gone, HOT FLASHES - GONE!My complexion is clearer and I have more energy. This is unbelievable. I use generic ACV and don't feel the need to switch to unfiltered.

Honey

It was recently suggested to me that I try the "Honey Therapy" for my severe allergies. Honey therapy being- RAW honey that is made locally with local bees. That being bees that take pollen from the same sources that I am apprently allergic too. I started this and two days later noticed a difference. While getting a SEVERE allergy attack, the same person suggested adding ACV apple cider vinegar to the honey. I mixed 3 oz. acv and 3 oz raw honey. Hard to drink, but then realized adding a bit of spring water helped the taste. I instaly got relief from my allergy symptoms, it lasts aobut 12 hours and then I repeat. Only drinking about 3 oz of the mix at a time. I am going to continue with this therapy and try some of the ACV/Honey/Baking soda mixtures for my acne and see how they work. I will repost to let everybody know how that and the acv/honey taken internally is working. Good luck to everybody. Am now a FIRM believer that God gave us what we need to cure what ailes us.

I HAVE BEEN HAVING SEASONAL ALLERGIES EVER SINCE DURING SPRING AND FALL. I WOULD GET RUNNY NOSE, ITCHY & WATERY AND SWOLLEN EYES. SOMETIMES I WOULD HAVE TO BLOW MY NOSE A DOZEN TIMES IN 1/2 HR AFTER I WAKES UP. AFTER RESEARCHING FOR A LONG TIME I CONCLUDED YOU MUST PEVENT THE ALLERGENS FROM EACHING YOUR BLOODSTREAM. YOU CANNOT COVER YOUR NOSE BUT I HAD ANOTHER IDEA. YOU CAN COAT THE INSIDE OF THE NOSE WITH VASELINE. I HAVE BEEN DOING THIS FOR ABOUT A MONTH, MORNING AND NIGHT AND HAVEN'T HAD TO BLOW MY NOSE NOT MORE THAN TWICE SINCE THEN. NO ITCHY, WATERY OR SWOLLEN EYES. I WAS SURPRISED IT WORKS. IT EVEN PREVENTS SNEEZING AND THE COMMON COLD. I USED TO TAKE CLARITIN BUT HAVEN'T TAKEN ANY SINCE THEN.

N-Acetylcysteine

I have had allergies for years. I developed allergies at the age of 28 and had suffered with them for a long time. Two years ago I brought a book called alterna-tive cures that I have been using for two years now to solve a few of my ailments. In reading the book for allergies NAC (n-acetylcysteine) was suggested for allergies. And it works, because right now the trees are blossoming and flowers as well and this is generally the worst time of year for me, because I suffer with allergies something awful. I have not had a problem with itchy eyes, sneezing, sore scratchy throat and tickling of the throat. I use the recommended dosage that is suggested in the book, but I can't remember what it is. Again, I have been using NAC two years and it has worked well for me.


Eliminate Dairy

Thanks for your website. I had suffered from a stuffed up nose and frequent sinus infections for the last 15 yrs. Tried all kinds of meds, but one of them actually caused liver problems. A friend gave me the phone # of a doctor who treats patients naturally and I visited him. It's amazing what cutting out dairy has meant for my life: no chronic headaches or stomach aches any more, and most of my allergies have cleared up (mold is still a problem). For those people who aren't completely helped by dairy elimination, try identifying other foods; for me, avoiding yeast was the final piece in the puzzle. But when I give in to temptation, the ACV really helps, esp. the vapors!


Dietary Changes

I found that cutting down on sugar and soda intake can eliminate allergies. I used to be unable to open my eyes at pollen season. Now that I'm not a soda addict for years I've been allergy free. I recently started to drink soda again and the allergies came storming back. Why is this relation so?

Psyllium Husk

I started to suffer from allergies about 7 years ago. I took over the counter medication to help me with the allergies. Chlorotabs was the only medication to help throughout allergy season. Last year in November I did a colon cleansing using physillum husk for 3 months. I did not know or was it mention in the books I read that the colon cleansing would get rid of my allergies. This was the first year that I did not use any allergy pills because I no longer suffer from allergies.

Honey has healing properties. Using local honey from where you live should relieve your allergies. I live in a polluted place and recently tried the local farm honey. To my surprise, I have stopped coughing and my sinus has been healed. I can breathe better. In addition, dates and walnuts are a better source of fiber and iron.

I take issue with the requirement for using local honey. My mom found the Dr. Jarvis folk medicine suggestion of taking honey to alleviate sniffles. Works great! To test this, mom & dad brought me honey from Spain. *SAME* wonderful effect. It isn't the local part of the honey that works, it's the *honey* part, irrespective of origin!


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!

Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation

To Ted: My Ragweed Allergy can get pretty ugly. completely stuffed up nose at night, post nasal drip, scratchy throat, uncontrolled sneezing and general feeling of being run down. H2O2 was giving me bloating, when drinking it in water. This time I bought a nasal pump. Put 3% HP (h2o2) in it, and pumped it in my mouth. To my surprise, the post nasal drip stopped almost immediately and the sneezing stopped. I carried my nasal pump to work, and did the same, as soon as I found, a big sneeze is on its way. And it worked almost every time. So the oxidative therapy of HP is working far better than all the Vitamin C, Vitamin E, NAC, Zinc, b-complex I was taking in hopes of combating the allergies. I am really thankful to you, cause had you not written posiitve things abt HP, I would have had no courage to try HP. You motivated me. Although I tried Bill Munro's method and I am also going to thank him personally. Please note: spraying HP in nostrils is really irritating. But spraying it insides of the mouth/ under the tongue, can literally stop and allergy attack. ( It has at least in my case). With allergy symptoms under control, I feel I have more energy and need less sleep, get less tired. Apart from spraying, I am also taking like 2 drops of 35% HP in a glass of water in the morning. I really wanna kill all the bugs out there. I am really impressed... thankyou.

Hi Bill: I am really glad I talked to you that day and tried HP inhalation. It has brought my Ragweed Allergy so much under control. I just pumped HP 4-5 times in my mouth and it literally stopped the sneezing and post nasal drip. You are my inspiration. Now I think I can say something is WORKING against my allergies, when even the famous Vitamin C did not work. thankyou. God bless you and your family.


Multiple Remedies

Allergies: If you wake up with a heavy head and bad throat which usually causes body ache, try this,

step 1. take hot water mixed with salt, baking soda, lemon juice gargle, clean, wash your toungue, throat, upper part of inside of your mouth, it will make you want to throw up almost, eyes will be so red, but you feel relieved so much, this is cleansing the mouth.

Step 2. put some oil inside your both nostrils almond oil or may be olive oil (we in Southern India use coconut oil) you have to use your fingers as much deep you can reach to do this, then take hot water in a plastic mug which is pointed on one side (or if you can find NETI POT wich is shaped like Alladin's lamp use it) put the hot water inside of one nostril after another tilting your head and drain it out, you will find all the dirt - mucus come out at once, (some water may come into your mouth or through another nose), this you can do two times a day, this is keeping your drainage clean. you will find great relief in your head, eyes, even in shoulders, if the allergy cold is so severe.

Step 3. Take hot boiling steaming water into a wide mouthed vessel, add Vicks or drops of eucalyptus oil (Nilgiri oil) into it, bend your face into it, cover your head surrounding the vessel with a thick towel, inhale the steam as much heat you can take, your forehead, eyes, ear start to feel so much better, this is steam therapy.

I had been to a doctor, who is not able to diagnose my allergy sinus cold properly, instead when he is asking me questions like 'are you feeling depressed' I felt he needs to be sent to a therapy session on how to treat his patients well and listen carefully what they say.

I stumbled across this website looking for a cure for my allergies. I have missed weeks from work due to allergies in the last year. I used ACV and that helped with the allergies but I still had some problems. I started oil pulling and I could really see the toxins leaving my body thru mucas ect.. After two weeks my allergies have been cured and I feel great.


Oil Pulling

I started oil pulling 20 dec 07. have used olive, safflower, hemp, sesame, oils. also i have had others try the pull also. so far noticed from safflower are teeth got white, gums felt firmer, sinus's cleared, allergies diminished. from hemp i got sleepy. others that tried olive it immediately raised their mood levels and depression. gout pain eased with only one olive oil pull. i also add a couple of drops of peppermint in the tablespoon to kill the germs and open the sinus's too. sesame did not get any immediate results maybe because it is toasted . all in all everyone i have told that used it have been very happy with the results. only problem is trying to explain to them how it works. so i tell them that it works like oil in an auto engine that catches dirt and when you change the oil the dirt comes out. my nephew that is a plumber in oregon relayed that to me when i was trying to tell him to do the pull he automatically understood how the process could work. in his profession he stated that plumbers work with oil and water all of the time. smart nephew i have.
