Stop Hay-fever

IMG_20190526_140548_917

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.

Repro Wellness

It is a woman’s right and power to control her own body and a personal decision whether or not to give birth especially given that rape and sexual assault are often not reported for personal reasons.

The easiest way to be in control of ones body is with nutrition. Eat fruits, vegetables, and seeds for wellness of mind and body, strength, balanced hormones, and a healthy planet.

High dose Vitamin C or fruits and veggies high in Vitamin C every hour for the first 24-48 hours can prevent implantation of fertilized egg into the uterus.

Some activities can put a pregnancy at risk such as vigorous exercise, water skiing, jacuzzi, or use of a water slide.

It’s estimated that half of pregnancies end in natural spontaneous abortion when thebody determines that the embryo is not viable due to timing of fertilization and deterioration of egg or sperm. If menstruation is late and flow is heavy it may be a natural spontaneous abortion.

A service dog can help with stress and bring protection, joy, and love. Yoga and self defense classes can help too.

Practice self care, be strong and well, stand for the human right to healthcare, and know that you have super power.

Free Healthcare

Wellness with lifestyle and nutrition is basically free to many people because healthy lifestyle and plant-based nutrition creates wellness and prevents or reverses health challenges. However unhealthy nutrition and lifestyle creates chronic health challenges. The current popular expensive high fat animal protein fad diet is linked to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and kidney disease. Human beings are designed to live on fruits, vegetables, seeds, sprouted grains and legumes. Also Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and liability is available on most auto insurance and most homes and public places have liability insurance in case of accidental injury and there are crowd-source funding and personal injury litigation options.

Cold Flu Virus Bacteria Allergy

811 SUNFOOD JUICE GARLIC
I love The 80/10/10 Diet for natural-wellness and I’ve eaten a whole ripe cantaloupe to break a cold or flu as read in The Sunfood Diet Success System, a whole ripe pineapple which contains natural antibiotics to get rid of sore throat, whole garlic cloves with antiviral and antibacterial properties to get rid of a bacterial infection, and whole flowers with pollen to alieve seasonal allergies.

Dog Food

Dished up homemade vegan dog food: water, lentils, rice, etc. Can add apple-cider-vinegar to prevent fleas and worms. Maybe add a bit of Taurine? Enzymes for elders? Dogs need one gram of protein per pound of ideal body weight per day (ie: 6g/day for chihuahua).
