Food triggers for pollen allergies

Bryce Wylde, Canada’s most popular alternative medicine expert, says that sufferers of allergies to airborne pollens may also be affected by eating certain foods. We know there is a cross-over of pollen within botanical families, and that sometimes being sensitive to one member of the family also means loss of tolerance to other members of the same plant family. If you know you are sensitive to these pollens, it may be helpful to avoid the related foods as well. Here’s the list:

Alder pollen: almonds, apples, celery, cherries, hazel nuts, peaches, pears, parsley, strawberry, raspberry

Birch pollen: almonds, apples, apricots, avocados, bananas, carrots, celery, cherries, chicory, coriander, fennel, fig, hazel nuts, kiwifruit, nectarines, parsley, parsnips, peaches, pears, peppers, plums, potatoes, prunes, soy, strawberries, wheat; Potential: walnuts

Grass pollen: fig, melons, tomatoes, oranges

Mugwort pollen: carrots, celery, coriander, fennel, parsley, peppers, sunflower

Ragweed pollen: banana, cantaloupe, cucumber, green pepper, paprika, sunflower seeds/oil, honeydew, watermelon, zucchini, echinacea, artichoke, dandelions, honey (if bees pollinate from wild flowers), hibiscus or chamomile tea

If the flowering trees and grasses have been making you miserable this spring, you might want to try a homeopathic hayfever remedy. It’s safe for all ages, won’t interact with any medicines, and doesn’t have side effects. Usually one to three doses per season are all that’s required for relief from itchy eyes, foggy head, sneezing and constant runny nose.

Natural Remedy for Hay Fever and Seasonal Allergies

For most of my life I suffered from seasonal allergies. But not anymore, since I found this amazing homeopathic hay fever remedy.

Sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, fuzzy head making it feel like life is coming at you through a tunnel… As summer faded each year I would be burning through forests of tissue boxes until that first frost would thankfully bring it to an end.

Until the spring, when the flowering trees burst into bloom and it would start all over again.

The anti-histimine prescriptions would work to keep the symptoms at bay, but the side effects were unpleasant: drowsiness or jitters, dry mouth and nose, weird taste in the back of my mouth, etc. I really didn’t like the idea of being on anti-histimines most of my life, but they were necessary if I were to function at all during half of the year.

I tried some other natural remedies with some success, such as taking locally-collected bee pollen, and found them to be temporarily helpful and worthwhile, but needed to be taken frequently to maintain the effects. I foresee bee pollen becoming expensive, too (so sad that we’re losing our bees!).

That’s the way my life used to be. Then, a homeopath told me about a homeopathic remedy for seasonal allergies.

That first season I used the remedy once, and then again about a week later, and was symptom-free for the rest of the season. The second season, I found I needed just a single dose to make me forget I ever had seasonal allergies.

This year I didn’t even realize that allergy season had arrived until someone else mentioned they were suffering already. I was thrilled to offer up this Homeopathic Hay Fever Remedy and watch it start to work immediately to alleviate his symptoms.

But don’t let me gush too long about this remedy. To me, it feels miraculous not to be suffering from seasonal allergies anymore.

In case you don’t know, homeopathy is a healing modality based on using minute amounts of a like substance to help the body regain a healthy equilibrium.

When taking homeopathic remedies, don’t eat or drink for 15 minutes before or afterward. Succuss (slam) the remedy in one palm five times before using, and empty the dropper fully before filling for use. Drop 5-6 drops underneath your tongue.  Repeat every 4 hours, if needed.

Homeopathic remedies will not interact with other medications and are safe to use when pregnant, nursing, or with infants and children.
