Allergies and Hayfever

Your Wellness Centre Naturopathy - Spring AllergiesSpring is here and this means pollen, dust, and allergies. We seem to be becoming increasingly intolerant to our environment, but help is at hand if you read on…

A stuffy runny nose, sore red eyes, a head full of cotton wool and bouts of involuntary sneezing, you don’t have to needlessly suffer the debilitating effects of Hay Fever or Sinus!

Help is at hand!  You don’t have to suffer needlessly from these irritating symptoms.  Don’t run to the chemist and self-prescribe the latest drug that supposedly suppresses these symptoms.

Instead, win the battle and boost your natural immunity so that your hay fever and sinus complaints naturally diminish.  By doing this now and improving the integrity of your upper respiratory tract, this will also help lay the foundations for improved winter immunity next year so that you don’t catch the first cold of the season when everyone else around you is coughing and sniffing.

Allergies are Nothing to Sneeze At!

Your Wellness Centre Naturopathy - Allergies - AsthmaWhile allergy and asthma appear to be caused by outside triggers, such as dust, pollen, dry air and stressful events, the underlying problem actually lies within us. Both allergy and asthma occur when a particular part of our immune system is out of balance. Our immune system is designed to protect us from infections and to keep us healthy. An allergy occurs when your immune system mistakes something that is normally harmless as being a threat to you and while “protecting” you from it, creates a strong inflammatory response. This inflammatory response is what produces the symptoms that you experience allergies. In asthma, this inflammation presents as difficulty breathing or may trigger an asthma attack.

Breathe Easy; Help is at Hand

Many of us know licorice as a confectionery, but did you know that licorice is a very effective herb for the treatment of allergy and asthma? Licorice is an immune regulator, meaning that it helps to bring a wayward immune system back into balance. Licorice is particularly helpful at relieving all types of allergy as well as asthma because it addresses the underlying immune problem in these conditions. Importantly, you won’t get this same effect from just eating the lolly, you need the strong herbal formula to do the trick. Combining licorice with the Chinese remedies Reiishi mushroom and Sophora root creates a potent formula with great effectiveness against allergy and asthma.

With over 4000 years of use in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Reiishi mushroom is tried and trusted in the treatment of asthma and allergy, providing relief for symptoms such as wheezing, tight chest and coughing. Sophora root is also outstanding in its ability to relax the lungs, making it highly effective for asthma. The fact that these herbs also prevent and treat eczema, dermatitis, itching skin and eyes and hayfever tells us that their benefit actually comes from correcting the underlying immune problem. This combination of herbs does not just suppress symptoms, but creates real healing, genuinely improving your health.
