Stop Hay-fever

I love spring and summer! But I used to suffer from seasonal allergies and many of my family members and friends still do. I read that people (especially men) don’t like unsolicited expert advice and it takes humans hearing something new three times to absorb; but having studied nutrition and natural wellness since 1972, I’ll share the following information and hope it helps alleviate suffering.

I got rid of my chronic seasonal allergy symptoms in three steps.

Step 1: I eliminated or replaced all cow dairy (milk, cheese, butter, ice cream, etc) with plant-based dairy. Plant-based foods are fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, grains, and legumes. Casein cow milk protein is difficult to digest, the #1 secondary food allergen, highly mucous forming, and breaks down into casomorphin opioids. Incompletely digested proteins adsorbed into the blood stream cause the histamine (allergy) immune response. Enzymes are key to all biochemical bodily processes including digestion. It takes ten metabolic enzymes to make one digestive enzyme because digestion is the most difficult bodily task so “self-digesting” live enzyme containing raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds give digestive and immune systems a break.

Step 2: To acclimate my body to pollen protein I eat raw wild flowers with their pollen inside.

Step 3. I daily drink 100 ounces of blended fresh raw fruit, leafy greens, seeds, and water to stay hydrated, cleansed, and nourished with fuel (carbs), essential fatty acids, essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants (anti cancer), phytonutrients, etc.

I’ve been seasonal allergy symptom free for many years. This blog post is my response to my son’s complaint about his seasonal allergies on Facebook, but my strategy to end seasonal allergy symptoms should work for anyone.

RAW

In 1990 I discovered I have a secondary food allergy to cooked cow milk, went vegan, began reading about food allergies, and began elimination challenge testing as suggested by my holistic medical doctor, Dr. Ward of Holistic Family Practice, Newburyport, MA. Eventually I found out I have secondary food allergies to cooked milk, wheat, soy, and corn – the four most common food allergens. Two books inspired me to become a 100% raw-foodist on April 1, 1999: Allergies – Disease in Disguise by Carolee Bateson Koch and The Essene Gospel of Peace by Edmond Bordeaux Szekeley. After two months of being all raw, I felt so good that I never went back to being a cooked-foodist and my life keeps getting better and better. :) Click on images for more information.
