Blow Off Allergy Season
Here are some tips to reduce your body's reaction to what's blowing in the wind as you enjoy the great outdoors.
Drink 1/2 of your body weight in ounces of FILTERED* water per day. For example, if you weigh 120 pounds, drink 60 ounces of water daily. Add a little pinch of sea salt to support your adrenal glands while you are at it. *FILTERED water to eliminate the chemicals and toxins in tap water as these tax your liver and immune system.
Drink Nettle tea throughout the day. Research has shown that stinging nettle leaf may reduce allergy symptoms because of its anti-inflammatory properties. Add a dab of LOCAL and minimally processed honey to your tea. Honey will include a dose of local pollen to help your system become less reactive during allergy season.
2. Food Focus
Boost your vitamin C intake with organic foods like: broccoli, kiwi, kale, pineapple, spinach, plums, cherries, berries, peppers, quince or any citrus fruit.
Actively avoid mucus producing foods such as gluten, dairy and sugar during allergy season (and throughout the year!).
Improve the alkaline balance in your body to boost your immune system, increase fresh organic green salads, green drinks as well as lemon and lime intake.
