Natural Nutrition for your family
Every Spring while kids are running to fill their Easter baskets with eggs, I run to the drugstore and fill up my shopping basket with allergy medication.
I have had seasonal allergies for as long as I can remember, and each Spring, I become desperate just to breathe out of my nose. To find some relief, I usually end up mixing three or four different over-the-counter allergy medications.
Spring is a busy season for me. This year I joined a men’s baseball league, I am a golfing enthusiasts, and I proudly serve my country in the Georgia Army National Guard. All of these activities require me to be outside for long periods of time and I really wanted to find a way to minimize my allergy symptoms in a natural and homeopathic way. Especially after this year’s harsh winter – I was definitely looking forward to enjoying the sun and the outdoor activities that come with Spring Fever.
My symptoms: (greatest to least)
Aller-7 Support with Quercetin, MSM and Stinging Nettles – 90 Tablets Supports normal respiratory function in the presence of airborne allergens.
Ingredients: Quercetin is an flavonoid (plant pigment) commonly found in fruits and vegetables, especially onions, citrus, and apples.
MSM is an organic sulfur compound that’s naturally derived during the earth’s rain cycle.
Stinging Nettles is one of natures best nutraceuticals, containing protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, beta-carotene, along with vitamins A,C, D, and B complex, all in a form that is easy for the body to use.
Sinu Orega Nasal Spray SinuOrega combines a unique blend of the powerful essential oils of sage, bay leaf, clove, and oregano in a wild, purified sea salt-water base. Health practitioners agree: a saline-based nasal wash is the best approach for cleansing the nasal passages as well as sinuses. All natural and safe for everyday use. Ingredients: Emulsified oils of wild oregano, bay leaf, sage, and clove in a sea salt base.
Rohto V Eye Drops
I use this brand of eye drops purely for the menthol in it. The menthol in Rohto V provides a cool, slightly burning sensation in my eyes that I like. If you do not like a burning sensation in your eyes then I do not recommend using this product.
Overall I was happy with the results of my My All-Start Lineup. I could tell the Aller-7 Support was working when I had the urges to sneeze. I felt like I was going to sneeze on many different occasions but the antihistamines in the ingredients were inhibiting my body from sneezing.
Usually during pollen season, my sneezes are violent and very frequent. I usually have chest pains and migraines after these sneeze attacks. I did sneeze a few times this month but never had violent or frequent sneezes. What a relief!Take a deep breath…
The Sinu Orega was a great tool for the stuffiness in my nose. When you spray it in your nose there is a little stinging sensation from the sea salt, but other than that you smell the aromatics of the clove, sage, and oregano.
After spraying, it usually takes a few minutes for the ingredients to start working. But once I sprayed and blew my nose, I instantly noticed the thick mucous built up in my nose was broken down and became runny. This helped a lot before my baseball games where I was constantly running, and needed to breathe heavily.
My eyes were never red or itchy this pollen season. My friends recommended that I use Rohto V for the cooling effect it gives off. The menthol in the eye drops gives a cooling sensation, which I thought was the greatest thing ever. However, I would not recommend this to anyone if they do not like a slight burning sensation in their eyes.$pending
In total I spent around $40 for the month of April on these three products. I usually end up paying around $100+ each year for the big name over-the-counter drugs.
I found my All-Star Lineup that I will stick to every April, and I hope everyone who suffers like me will find what works for them.
Now I guess it’s time to find the best sunblock for the summertime!
