Allergy Triggers

A Chocolate bar can bring on classic allergy symptoms.

Weather fluctuations such as temperature, air pressure and humidity changes can bring on allergy symptoms. This is also a common reason for sinus pain, pressure and headaches, which are often treated as if you had a sinus infection.

Have you ever been so stressed out that you started sneezing?  It happens. Stress induces a physiological reaction of certain chemicals including histamines, which lead to allergy symptoms. And although stress doesn't actually cause allergies per se, research shows it can make allergy symptoms much worse: immediately and even the next day.

Allergic rhinitis
Symptoms can include watery eyes, sneezing, runny nose and even difficulty breathing. This is due to an extra-sensitive nervous system in your nose that overreacts to certain stimulants like colones or perfumes.

Sun
The sun can bring on painful rashes and hive-like bumps. It’s a condition commonly called a “sun allergy,” but its true name is photosensitivity. This occurs when the body’s immune system overreacts to sunlight exposure. The sun causes a reaction in the skin which changes the protein component of the skin, producing an inflammatory cell reaction which releases histamine. Chemicals in lotions, perfumes or oral medications (like antibiotics or diuretics) may also prompt the allergic reaction.

All-Natural Allergy Remedies
   
Saline Nasal Rinse
Basically all you’re doing is flushing out your sinuses with a saltwater solution, which can help wash away allergens and irritants. To do it, grab a Neti Pot or a large squeeze bottle and fill it with a premixed packet of saline solution (available at drugstores) or make your own solution. To mix it yourself, combine 1 quart of distilled or boiled (then cooled) water; 2 to 3 tsp non-iodized salt (kosher, pickling, canning or sea salt); and 1 tsp baking soda. Put about 8 oz at a time in the Neti Pot or squeeze bottle and tilt your head forward over the sink while you pour/squeeze the solution in one nostril and let it drain out the other. You could try;  to pant like a puppy, which lifts the palate and closes off the back of the nose so you don’t get that drowning sensation.
 
Cool-Mist Humidifier
When it’s still a little cool at night and indoor humidity is low, using a cool-mist humidifier can help get allergens out of the air. Water droplets bind to the allergens, and they get heavy and fall to the floor so you don’t inhale them.  Can also add apple cider vinegar and essential oils for greater benefit.
 
Air Purifier with a HEPA Filter
Using a HEPA filter—especially in the bedroom—is the best way to remove spores and pollen from the air.
 
Steam Inhalation
Congested? Try inhaling the steam of essential oils here is a good recipe: Fill a saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Turn off the heat, take the pan off the stovetop and add:

2 drops myrtle essential oil
3 drops rosemary essential oil
3 drops eucalyptus essential oil
2 drops tea tree essential oil

Tent a bath towel over the saucepan (keep your face just far enough away from the steam to avoid burns) and inhale deeply for 5 to 10 minutes. Repeat 1 to 3 times a day.

Local Honey
Honey produced closest to where you live works best. The bees eat the pollen then they produce the honey and you consume that, so it’s kind of like a mini allergy shot.  It is also best if the beekeeper leaves enough honey in the hive for the bees to overwinter instead of taking all the honey and leaving sugar water.  It weakens the hive.

Free Range Goat Milk
When goats are free ranged they will eat most of the plants that cause the allergies and we get the benefits from their milk.  Goats that are fed alfalfa only don't have these benefits.

Quercetin
This substance, which is found in the skin of onions and apples, is a natural antihistamine. You can take it by itself (300 mg 3 times a day during peak allergy season without food), or in a combination product like NOW's  Quercetin which also includes bromelain (from pineapple; also beneficial for allergies). Allergy Fighters which contains quercetin, Vitamin B-6, Vitamin E, and Vitamin C.  Respir-All, which contains quercetin, stinging nettle leaf, bromelain and other herbs. All these supplements are relatively safe, but check with your doctor first to make sure they don’t interact with other medications you’re taking (antidepressants and thyroid meds in particular may cause a problem).
 
Stinging Nettle Leaf
This herb, found in many of the combo allergy products noted above, can also be taken by itself in tea form, Nettle Leaf Tea.  To make sure you get enough of the medicinal oils, pour boiling water over the tea bag and cover the cup for 15 minutes to let the oils seep in before drinking.
 
Homeopathic Treatments
Homeopathy uses very diluted amounts of herb and flower essences. Try two homeopathic remedies (taken orally; you let the tiny tablets dissolve under your tongue) for allergies: Allergiemittel AllerAide which is especially good for burning, itchy eyes; and Allium cepa, which is good for a drippy nose.


Acupuncture
Although it’s not exactly clear why, acupuncture may help alleviate allergy symptoms—especially if you start treatment about a month before peak season. It’s possible that stimulating some of the meridians (channels through which energy flows) may help to temper an overactive immune system that can lead to bad allergy symptoms.



The Best Air-Purifying Plants

Whether it’s old or new, your home could be harboring unhealthy (and invisible) toxins. These chemical compounds, which can adversely affect health, are found in emissions from paint, plastics, carpet, cleaning solutions, and numerous building materials. Three major offenders found in the home include:

  • Formaldehyde (carpet, upholstery, glues, paint, and more)
  • Benzene (plastics, synthetic fibers, lubricants, rubber, pesticides, and more)
  • Trichloroethylene (paint removers, rug cleaning solution, adhesives, and more)

Lucky for us, nature has a way of keeping itself clean. There are many powerful air-cleaning plants — Boston fern, English ivy, spider plant, rubber plant, and several palms — that naturally remove the above pollutants from the air, as well as other common indoor toxin such as xylene, toluene, ammonia, acetone, and more. We picked five of our favorites and offer tips on how to keep them in top working condition.

Tip:  In a 2,000 square foot house, bring in 15 to 20 plants in 6-inch pots or larger. Rather than scattering single plants, create group displays in each room for a great look and maximum air quality. Adjust accordingly for larger or smaller homes. Before purchasing, ask about which plants, if ingested, could be harmful to pets.

Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum)

Third-grade science class taught us that plants naturally convert carbon dioxide into oxygen. But, as NASA and the Associated Landscape Contractors of America discovered in the 1980s, peace lilies also absorb benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, and more. To maximize the plant's air-cleansing potential, keep the foliage dust-free. Pristine white blooms are a bonus with this efficient plant.

Care:  The peace lily thrives in both low and bright light. Keep the soil slightly moist and feed monthly during spring and summer with an all-purpose liquid fertilizer. Low light conditions inhibit flower production.

Eliminates:  formaldehyde, benzene, trichloroethylene, xylene, ammonia, and more

  Dracaena

This large group of houseplants offers selections in all shapes, sizes, and colors. The tall corn plant (D. fragrans 'Massangeana') looks at home in a corner, while the colorful striped leaves of 'Lemon Lime' (D. deremensis 'Lemon Lime'), pictured above, and the day-glow 'Limelight' (D. deremensis 'Limelight') brighten up a dark spot. These selections flourish in low light, while the Madagascar Dragon Tree (D. marginata) prefers bright light.

Care:  There's a dracaena for every light situation. Keep the soil damp but not soggy. A pot sitting in a water-filled saucer is the kiss of death. Feed your plant monthly during spring and summer with an all-purpose liquid fertilizer.

Eliminates:  formaldehyde, xylene, toluene, benzene, trichloroethylene

  Florist’s Chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum morifolium)

Numerous flowering houseplants have air-purifying properties. While anthurium and orchids do a good job, the florist’s chrysanthemum (commonly call a "mum") is one of the best. Technically not a houseplant, this seasonal beauty flowers for about six weeks with proper care. When it is spent, toss it in the compost pile and treat yourself to another fresh pot.

Care:  Place the chrysanthemum in bright, indirect light. Check the soil’s moisture every other day, and keep it damp. Don’t bother with fertilizer, as it is not going to re-bloom.

Eliminates:  formaldehyde, xylene, benzene, ammonia

  Bamboo Palm (Chamaedorea seifrizii)

Easy elegance best describes this sturdy palm. It grows between 3 and 6 feet tall and also transpires a healthy bit of moisture into a room, making it particularly welcome in dry winter months. Of all the palms, this plant is most resistant to spider mites. To help it avoid this prevalent pest, locate it where air circulates freely around it.

Care:  While this palm requires bright light to flourish, do not place it in direct sunlight. Keep the soil moist, and feed your plant monthly during summer with an all-purpose liquid fertilizer. An occasional misting helps deter mites.

Eliminates:  formaldehyde, benzene, carbon monoxide, xylene, chloroform, and more

  Golden Pothos (Epipremnum aureum)

Virtually indestructible, golden pothos consistently grows in high gear and is considered one of the most effective indoor purifiers of the plant world. Show it off in a hanging basket, or place in small 6-inch pots at the base of a tall indoor tree (such as the Dracaena corn plant) to cascade over the pot’s edge. The newest selection, ‘Neon,’ boasts brilliant, glowing foliage.

Care:  Golden pothos grows in any light situation except direct sunlight. Water it when the soil becomes dry to the touch. Feed monthly with an all-purpose liquid plant food and trim long tendrils when the plant becomes too large.

Eliminates:  formaldehyde, xylene, toluene, benzene, carbon monoxide, and more


Did You Know!! 
Reason to diffuse essential oils instead of chemicals into homes
  • In homes where air fresheners were used daily, mothers averaged nearly 10 percent more frequent headaches than mothers in homes where air fresheners were used once a week or less
  • In the "daily" homes, mothers had more than 25 percent higher risk of depression compared to mothers in the "once a week" homes
  • In the "daily" homes, infants were 32 percent more likely to suffer from diarrhea
  • Infants in the "daily" homes had significantly more earaches than infants in "once a week" homes
  • In their published study in the Archives of Environmental Health, the researchers noted that the daily use of air fresheners and other aerosol products created a gradual accumulation of VOCs. And while the study focused on mothers and infants, the researchers believe that VOCs may cause similar reactions for anyone who spends a significant amount of time at home, such as retirees.

    5 Easy Ways to Keep Your Brain Sharp

    Chill Out
    The brain remembers better when it’s relaxed, so take a few minutes each day to breathe deeply or meditate. The positive of meditation is you have focused concentration and relaxation taking place at the same time. Researchers believe those things are good because they're developing new connections for your brain cells.

     Focus on the Future
    People who regularly made plans and looked forward to upcoming events had a 50 percent reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease, according to a recent study. Something as simple as setting a goal to have a weekly coffee date with a friend (and keeping it) will do. Psychologically it keeps us motivated. There's evidence that people who have a purpose in life or who are working on long-or short-term goals appear to do better.

    Go for a Walk
    Mildly elevated glucose levels (even if you don’t have diabetes) can harm the area of the brain that helps you form memories. Experts agree that physical activity can help get blood glucose down to normal levels. In fact, the strongest evidence is regarding the effect of physical activity on the brain. When you exercise, you release chemicals that are good for your brain. It's like a mini fountain of youth in your brain, and the only way you can get it is exercise.

      Snack on Berries
    Blueberries have compounds called anthocyanins that help communication between brain cells and appear to improve memory. The darker the fruit or vegetable, the better.

     Learn Something New
    Take a Spanish class online, join a knitting club, or learn to play scrabble, etc.  Mental stimulation limits the debilitating effects of aging on memory and the mind. But the best thing for your brain,  is when you combine learning something new with physical activity. It should be something like dancing, or coaching a sport. Or go learn golf with your girlfriends. That sort of thing is even better for your brain than, say, a crossword puzzle.


    Dr. Christopher's 3 keys to health.
    1.  Cleanse:  The body is like a river which should flow freely.  Dr. Christopher believed that all forms of disease came from some type of blockage.  He taught that healing began with cleansing the body first.
    2.  Nourish:  Once the body is cleansed it will be able to absorb the nutrients found in whole foods and herbs.  Dr. Christopher's nourishing herbal formulas help provide necessary daily supplements which are lacking in the average American diet.
    3.  So you can Heal:  Dr. Christopher taught that the body will heal itself once it is cleansed and nourished properly.  Their formulas were made with you in mind.




    We have a new Bowel Conditioner formula that my husband has been using for over 30 years and likes it better than anything else he has tried.  It softens the stool while conditioning the bowel.  We are selling it under our Garden Essence label.  We had  a company bottle them for us and then we add our label.
