Harnessing the Power of Your Plate: Dietary Changes to Alleviate Allergies
Understanding the role that food plays in natural allergy relief is crucial. Certain foods have properties that can help reduce allergic reactions. For instance, foods like fish and flaxseeds are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. These can help combat inflammation caused by allergies.
Similarly, consuming a good amount of fruits and vegetables can also help. These are loaded with quercetin which is a natural antihistamine.
Consider incorporating these into your daily diet and observe for any positive changes. However, keep in mind that high glycemic fruits can cause aggravation to allergies. So it’s best to stick to the low glycemic index fruits.
Beneficial Supplements for Natural Allergy Relief
Supplements can play a significant role in managing allergies. As we mentioned, Vitamin C is a natural antihistamine. While it can be found in many fruits and vegetables, adding a supplement can boost your intake.
One of the challenges to getting Vitamin C from diet alone is that American soil surprisingly nutrient poor. Much of this is due to many of the practices of big Agribusiness. The use of toxic herbicides and pesticides to maximize yields and cut costs is quite common.
Damage also comes from mismanaging the soil by not rotating crops or augmenting the soil between plantings.
As a natural alternative, stick to produce that is labeled as “Organic”. This isn’t a perfect solution but it helps. When possible, use nutrient supplementation that is organic and grown in rich soils.
Also consider Probiotics as an aid in maintaining a healthy gut. This is essential for a strong immune system. Always consult with your healthcare provider before starting any new supplement regimen.
The Natural Allergy Relief Lifestyle: Adjustments for Better Health
Adopting certain lifestyle changes can greatly contribute to natural allergy relief. Regular exercise boosts your immune system and helps your body fight off allergens.
Keeping your home clean and free of allergens like dust mites and pet dander make a big difference.
Stress management techniques like meditation and yoga can help maintain a strong immune system.
Another important lifestyle change involves correct food pairing. The Standard American Food Pyramid recommends that we combine foods improperly. Their recommendation doesn’t allow for full and complete digestion.
Complete digestion is critical. Otherwise the gut cannot absorb nutrients from our food. Instead, it’s too busy struggling just to DIGEST IT.
Each plate of food can be divided in thirds.
Two thirds of each plate should be vegetables in some nutritious form (soups, salads, stir-fries, steamed, raw). Avoid canned veggies. They are completely void of any nutritional value.
The other third of the plate can either be: animal protein: fish, chicken, turkey, beef, chicken, eggs OR starchy vegetables: potatoes, corn (Organic Only), sweet potatoes, or lentils.
We also advise our clients to avoid wheat and dairy products.
They are very difficult to digest or get any nutrition from. This creates inflammation in the stomach and throughout the digestive system.
Wheat is mostly genetically engineered. It’s been hybridized to a ridiculous extent, and is harvested too early. Even organic wheat is mostly cross contaminated.
Dairy, when raw is a much better product for our digestive system. Pasteurization and homogenization thickens and alters the original dairy molecule.
The molecule is so large it is almost impossible for the body to use. Store bought dairy products usually also contain recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH). This is a synthetic (man-made) hormone used by US dairy farmers to increase milk production in cows.
It was approved by the FDA in 1993, but it can also affect our own human endocrine system.
Fortunately, US nutrition isn’t all gloom and doom. There are plenty of wheat and dairy substitutes available at good nutrition stores.
These recommendations will seriously increase your chances of better digestion, and reduce the risk of inflammation throughout the digestive tract.
A final word on the gut connection to allergies. The upper respiratory tract is almost always a direct reflection of how well the digestive process is managed.
The Role of Hydration in Natural Allergy Relief
Staying well hydrated is also essential in the fight against allergies. Drinking plenty of water helps thin the mucus in your nasal passages, reducing symptoms like sneezing and congestion.
Herbal teas and broths can also be beneficial, providing both hydration and soothing warmth.
We have a special method of hydration which we share with our clients, enabling them to more quickly and fully hydrate.
The Power of Plants: Herbal Remedies for Allergies
Lastly, we cannot forget the array of herbal remedies available for natural allergy relief.
Herbs like butterbur, stinging nettle, and quercetin, help alleviate allergy symptoms. Essential oils such as eucalyptus, peppermint, and lavender can help clear up congestion and soothe irritated nasal passages.
As always, discuss these options with your healthcare provider before starting a new treatment.
Natural Allergy Relief: The Final Word
Managing allergies does not always mean turning to over-the-counter medicines. These anti-histamine products eventually reduce their effectiveness, being ‘suppressive’ medications. And they are hard for the liver to manage with all the other work it does every day.
You can significantly alleviate your allergy symptoms. Instead of a trip to the local Walgreen’ or CVS, consider strategic dietary changes, beneficial supplements, and a few lifestyle adjustments.
Utilize the power of Omega-3 rich foods and quercetin-laden fruits and vegetables to ease inflammation and combat allergic reactions. With the right supplements, such as Vitamin C and probiotics, you can boost your immune system and foster a healthy gut.
Adopting an allergy-friendly lifestyle, like regular exercise, keeping your home clean, and practicing stress management and eating correctly can contribute to natural allergy relief.
Remember, hydration plays a critical role in managing allergies, so make sure you drink plenty of water. Also, don’t overlook the potential of herbal remedies and essential oils in fighting allergies. However, always consult with your healthcare provider before starting any new treatment regimen.
With these natural and holistic remedies, you can conquer your allergies and breathe easy again. It’s your journey towards an allergen-free life, and every small step counts. Take control of your health, and transform your life today!
