Natural Relief for Allergies

Pollen, mold and dust allergies can trigger days (or months) of sneezing; stuffy noses; watery, itchy eyes; and headaches.

On the other hand, prescription and over-the-counter medications that help relieve allergy symptoms can cause uncomfortable symptoms of their own — from drowsiness, a foggy brain and nausea to dryness in the mouth, nose and throat.

Here’s what I recommend for natural relief:

  1. Minimize your exposure to allergens.
    • Use an air filter in the house — in every room if possible, but especially in the room where you spend most of your time. Normally this is the bedroom. HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filters are recommended; they force air through a fine mesh that traps particles including pollen, pet dander and dust mites.
    • Invest in a good vacuum cleaner with a built-in HEPA filter. Vacuum often.
    • Wear an allergy mask when you mow the lawn and any time you’ll be exposed to large amounts of allergens. Or better yet, let someone else do the mowing for you.
    • Resolve any mold issues in your home. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency provides helpful guidelines for controlling mold and moisture in the home. We also have air purifiers (purifiers get rid of mold, filters get rid of dust) available that we RENT as well as sell.  You can check them out at www.airoasis.com.   We do recommend you rent before you buy, so you can see if this helps your symptoms before spending a lot on a system. Call us for details at (203) 797 8412.
  2. Avoid sugar in your diet.
    Sugar in any form increases inflammation in the body and suppresses the immune system, weakening its ability to fight the effects of environmental allergens. So eliminate sweets and alcohol as well as processed foods that contain sugar as an unexpected ingredient (especially be on the lookout for high fructose corn syrup). Also limit your intake of fruit. Even natural sugars can increase inflammation in the body.
  3. Support healthy digestion.Did you know the gastrointestinal system comprises 75% of the body’s immune system? If it’s not functioning optimally, you may be more prone to allergies or your existing allergies may worsen. Gas, bloating, bowel irregularity and acid reflux are all signs of digestive imbalance. Yeast (or candida) infections in the gut may also cause issues.
  4. Basics for digestive health include a eating diet that’s high in vegetables and low in sugar and processed foods, drinking plenty of water and chewing your food thoroughly. See your naturopathic physician for a treatment plan for your specific imbalance needs. If you are not local to Danbury, CT,  Dr Gazsi can work with you long distance via PHONE CONSULTATATIONS as well as running nutritional and other ASSESSMENTS long distance.
  5. Take natural antihistamine products. I recommend pure amylase, an enzyme that digests the carbohydrates in food. (Incomplete of carbohydrates has been linked to blood sugar imbalances, allergies and asthma.)
  6. Take natural anti-inflammatory products such as bromelain, an extract derived from pineapple; nettles, an herb used for centuries to treat allergy symptoms; and quercitin, a bioflavonoid that supports the immune system. Our AllerQC formula has all three together.

Won’t it be wonderful to enjoy summer without sneezing all day?

I went from having no energy and being in a poor mood to having energy, in a better mood and thinking more clearly when I started taking your high absorption Vitamins, Mineral Capsules and IBS Powder.

Lou G.

Your Joint Health formula has been so so helpful. No more creaky stiff joints! No more soreness after walking. I can walk again! Much appreciated.

Joan L.

Your IBS and probiotics helped my son with his stomach problems that no one else had been able to help with. The combination really is what did it. And I think the stabilized probiotics really made the difference as I had tried others before with no effect.

Lynn L.

Your vitamins and minerals work better than anything I’ve ever tried before. Improve growth and revitalization of my skin, nails and hair, more energy, feeling calmer and more optimistic about life in general. What a huge improvement.

After being tired all the time I finally found the Essential Naturals “Adrenal” formula. These capsules help me maintain good energy with no side effects and no overstimulation.

Andrea G.

Optibiotic Rocks! I rely on it to help feel better when I’m starting to slide. A great potent formula! I use it for prevention as well as when I’m feeling like I’m coming down with something.

Nancy C.

After years and years of struggling with regularity, I no longer have a problem thanks to your Mineral Capsules. In addition I stopped getting colds all the time and I have lots more energy.

Rena B.

Just wanted to let you know that the first night I took your Cortisol Balance, I slept through the night without waking. I wasn’t sure at first, but I have slept every night since without waking!! It has been years! I’ll be dipped. This is amazing. Do you know the trouble I’ve gone through just to get a good night’s sleep?

Bill C.

These natural substances have worked wonderfully well for my chronic sinus issues. Your high potency Olive leaf and Immune Support together cleared me up quickly. And I had tried other brands before with no success. I am most grateful.
