Spring is here!! Or at least it’s coming, depending on where you live! As flowers, grasses, and trees bloom, almost 1 in 2 people in America pull out the kleenex, eye drops, and allergy drugs.
One of the most frequent questions I get this time of year is regarding natural remedies for allergies. Millions of people are tired of dealing with the side effects of allergy meds and looking for real answers to their ills. Many of these people also recognize the importance of getting to the root cause of health problems. Other people simply want to save money on their medical expenses, and others still are looking to take care of as many of their health conditions as they can at home without having to rely on doctors and drugs.
If you struggle with allergies and are looking for natural solutions, I have some “good” news and some “bad” news.
The “good” news is that there is a natural remedy that has worked for thousands and thousands of people, my mother included, and has helped them get off allergy drugs completely. That remedy is therapeutic-grade lavender oil (MUST be therapeutic-grade)!
For mild to moderate allergies, drop a couple of drops of lavender into your hands, rub them together and inhale deeply. Rub the lavender on the bottoms of the feet, particularly the balls of the feet and toes. For more severe allergies, take lavender oil internally in addition. Drop a couple of drops directly on your tongue, hold for a few seconds, then swallow daily or whenever you have an attack. Alternatively, get some blank capsules from your local health food store and make lavender capsules by pouring in a bit of olive oil and 3 drops of lavender. Take 1 capsules 2-3x/day or as needed.
The “bad” news is that it may not be that simple for some people with severe allergies. The good news about the bad news is that addressing the root causes of allergies can make allergies a thing of the past!!
Give the digestive tract a boost –
Allergies can be connected to digestive issues. There is a raw apple cider vinegar drink that I highly recommend for digestive health. You can get the recipe here. Drink daily. I also highly recommend backing off consumption of dairy, wheat, and sugar, especially when they are processed.
Make sure to keep yourself hydrated –
Allergies can be a side effect of dehydration. Be sure to drink plenty of pure water throughout the day. I drink water from a natural mountain spring in my area and do not at all recommend tap water. I like to add lemon or peppermint essential oils to my water to add delicious flavor, antioxidants, and for gentle full-body detoxification. It’s also a good idea to add a pinch of sea salt to your water to help with electrolyte replacement.
Detox the liver –
A congested liver can lead to allergies. My favorite way to detoxify my liver is oil pulling with helichrysum essential oil. You can read about oil pulling here. JuvaFlex oil applied over the liver 2-3x/day or as needed can also help this important organ to operate more optimally!
To Sum Up:
1. Try lavender oil for your allergies. This has worked for the vast majority of my clients to get rid of their allergies.
2. You can’t go wrong drinking more water.
3. For more severe allergies, deal with the digestive tract and liver. You also can’t go wrong with either of these!!
