My husband has had bad allergies all of his life and has been on prescription anti-histimines since he was about 17 (he's 64 now). The homeopathic person that's helping him out put him on Quercitin. He is absolutely astonished that he has no trouble with allergies now. She recommended a particular brand which I guess I can't mention but it has 500mg of Vit C, 1000 mg of Quercetin, 140 mg Bromelain, 100mg Citrus Bioflavonoids, 25 mg Acerola, 25mg Rose hips and 20 mg Rutin. She recommended he take 2 a day. It seems it only took a month or so and he was allergy free. Now he only takes them once in awhile when he feels he needs them. He also takes MSM for his knees but it isn't helping much.

Hi Cindy... The best diet is simply an elimination diet which essentially eliminates all the dangerous elements from processed or man-made foods and is the same as the anti-candida diet shown in this EC comment stream here :

My own health maintenance protocol -- always preventative -- also assumes that you will never realistically be able to avoid processed or man-made foods. After all, in order to stick to such a regimen would mean not going out to parties, not eating in restaurants, not drinking a little wine or coffee with friends now and then -- and what about holidays? I regard this avoid-everything-bad-at-all-costs as a little excessive and extreme in my opinion and not very realistic because I like going out socialising and having fun occasionally. So, unless you are suffering from a major problem like liver problems, heart problems, candida or IBS or Fibromyalgia or arthritis, which does call for a much more intense daily approach and a stricter diet, then my way is simply to adopt a preventative maintenance approach so that you can enjoy your life a wee bit.

So this is why I continually detox my own body on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. My regimen now is much less intense and I've become much more aware of my own body state since ridding myself of candida. I usually take a decoction of Chanca Piedra, Heart Vine(Tinospora cordifolia), Neem leaves and Tumeric Root once a month for about 7 days only. This washes my kidneys, helps revive my liver and intestines as well as helping to rid my body of any excess calcium and acid build-up. I alkalize fairly regularly using Ted's lemon/lime remedy mainly, normally on a daily basis now. I regularly take vitamins and minerals in the form of dessicated liver and fulvic acid as my nutrient baseline. I avoid taking tablets supplements where possible. I also regularly take large dose lugol's Iodine(removes fluoride and bromide as well as all its many other benefits) as well as large dose Magnesium and Vit C(Ascorbate) because not only are these specific nutrients sadly lacking in all western diets, the RDA recommended for these supplements is, in my opinion, way to small as to be almost laughable against all the evidence that's already out there. I also use borax and Hydrogen Peroxide remedies when I have to and regularly use Ted's recommended topical and oral remedies as well. I also keep Methylene Blue, Aspirin and Lysine handy in case I get flu or a cold or some other nasty bug.

So therefore my health maintenance method is almost wholly preventative but not that intense. I continually supplement to supply those vitamins and minerals that I think I am not getting from my food. I also regularly detox heavy metals using sodium thiosulphate or through diet using green tea, cilantro or chlorella. All this has simply become a habit with me now.

I am currently trying something called Chyawanprash -- a complete and all-round Ayurvedic herbal food supplement that contains over 30-40 important Indian herbs(the herbal formula does vary depending on what make you buy) based on an ancient and famous Indian herbal recipe. The Ayurvedic healing system cleverly makes some of its important herbal concoctions completely naturally(no modern preservatives or additives) into food forms that are actually quite tasty -- and by the way, Chyawanprash is delicious -- you can take it with bread or crackers as a spread or simply take two teaspoonfuls a day and it is packed with nutrients. Chyawanprash is a well known herbal rejuvenator in Indian Ayurvedic medicine and contains some very active and important healing herbs like Boerhaavia diffusa(liver, allergies), Indian Myrrh Tree Bark(intestines, parasites), Silver (anti-pathogenic), Indian Gooseberry(high Vit C), Ashwaganda(all round adaptogen -- Indian ginseng), Sida cordifolia(adaptogen, energizing), Black Pepper(for lungs and as an absorbtion synergist), Asparagus(alkaline, acts against arthritis and cancer), Cinnamon(Intestinal protective), Terminalia chebula(anti-ulcer), Tinospora cordifolia(all round adaptogen, liver and kidneys), Tribulus terrestris(libido, sexual organs), Chanca piedra(all round adaptogen, antiviral, liver and kidneys) and there are many more herbs as well.

Chyawanprash is also fairly cheap, you can find it at any Indian grocery or deli because it is an ancient and well-known herbal rejuventor that is still widely used and trusted by the Indian community.

Allergies: Please, please, please try the "NETI POT" !

Healthfood stores, yoga studios usually have's looks like a tiny tea pot, you fill it with water, add salt, and rinse the nasal passages. It gently washes away dust, pollen, excess mucus. Simple!

All info, saline solution, head position (with pictures), a little breathing exercise after the nasal cleanse is included with the neti pot. Salt can be purchased separately.

P.S. Love this web site, love to learn about natural remedies, and so many good willing people...:)
Thank you EARTHCLINIC for creating a place where our good spirits can meet!

I've had minor allergies for most of my life & progressive allergies for about 8yrs. Many of my symptoms are "sub clinical" & even the Allergists have dismissed me as a chronic complainer when I describe my symptoms. My most recent issue is that if I take pain Tylenol or Benedryl I get chills & a weird, creepy-crawling feeling inside of my lower back. I asked the Dr. to check my kidneys but an ultra-sound looked normal. I'm now going to look into liver stress thanks to your article. I can't believe the Dr.s didn't make the connection at the time of my visit!
