Quick Tips on Getting and Staying Healthy


Spring Classes, 2008 -- See below

Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.
- John Quincy Adams


What Can You Do To Reduce Your Hay Fever Suffering?

What Is Hay Fever?
Hay fever is when you have an allergic reaction triggered by inhaled substances (usually pollens). Symptoms include frequent sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, and irritated, itchy or red eyes.

The allergic reaction causes your body to make antibodies which try to fight off the foreign invader. Your body then releases histamine and other chemicals which are stored in mast cells. This release causes your symptoms.

Natural Treatments
Natural treatments for hay fever direct their efforts at stabilizing the mast cells so they don't rupture so easily. This prevents the release of histamine.

Effective anti-histamines include some of the bioflavonoids like quercitin (found in onions, apples, and black tea), and catechin (green tea).

Vitamin C is also a natural anti-histamine. Be sure to use a vitamin C that specifically has the bioflavonoid complex included. C-500 Methoxyflavone from Metagenics is a wonderful allergy, hay fever and asthma product.

Also, be sure to try herbs like Eyebright herb (Euphrasia Officinalis), Echinacea (Echinacea Purpurea), and Albizia (Albizia Lebbek bark).

EYEBRIGHT helps normalize the mucus secretions of the nose and gives your body a proper chance to fight environmental stressors. It also helps the itching and redness of the eyes.

ECHINACEA enhances the immune system and specifically helps the upper respiratory system.

ALBIZIA helps assist the body in keeping your breathing passages free and clear.

What About Diet?
The liver mediates the effects histamines have on your body. To reduce the stress on your liver, remember to eliminate dairy products, refined carbohydrates (sugar, pastas, breads), and reduce your consumption of coffee and alcohol during hay fever seasons.

Be sure to drink 6-8 glasses of water to keep your body hydrated and cleansing. Adding lemon (about 1 lemon per quart of water) helps the liver to function better.

When you should start these herbal, vitamin and dietary protocols? Ideally, BEFORE the hay fever season hits. The idea is to build your body up before it is inundated by all the pollens and pollution in the air. Already being bothered? Start NOW.

How about a delicious recipe for keeping your liver healthy? Try Beet and Carrot Casserole.

Wednesdays with Gurusahay Khalsa
