If your allergies produce a stuffy nose or a runny nose or both, alternately, you may want to try the following natural anti-inflammatories that could help decrease symptoms: quercetin, bromelain, N-acetylcysteine (NAC), boswellia, butterbur, and stinging nettle. Fortunately, you don't have to be your own natural pharmacist. Combinations of these ingredients are found in products called Breathe Clear Daily, Sinupret, and Ortho Molecular's Natural D-Hist. Find them in health food stores or on the Internet. Source: Health & Healing newsletter, 5/14, by Julian Whitaker, M.D.

Do you have sinus congestion? Research has revealed that fungus is the primary cause of sinus congestion, so antibiotics and allergy medications may not be the best approach. Instead, clean the sinuses by irrigating them with a product called Sinus Cleanser, for allergy treatment, which contains Baptisia tinctoria, a homeopathic antifungal, along with colloidal silver, grapefruit seed extract, and oregano.
A good, natural allergy treatment is waiting in your pantry: Spicy foods can help open up nasal passages for allergy relief when you're really clogged up. Hot peppers, horseradish, wasabi, etc., can help you breathe easier. Eat them at home, or even in restaurants!

Allergy treatments can be fun! Light, happy laughter does good things for your immune system, and it eases stress, which can be a factor in allergies, so make a regular appointment with yourself to find ways to laugh, as much as you can--"three to four times a week for 20 to 40 minutes, minimum," says Lee Berk, DRPH, Associate Professor, Health Promotion and Education, Loma Linda University School of Medicine, Loma Linda, CA (as seen in Reader's Digest, March 2007).
Hey, Dr. Berk. Just what can be so funny for so long, huh? Where do you get your material to make your patients laugh that much?
Experts say your immune system affects your allergies, so do what you can to strengthen your immune system and keep it healthy. Increasing your intake of fruits, vegetables, and foods containing Omega-3 oils (salmon, mackerel, flaxseeds, walnuts) constitute natural allergy treatments. Additional allergy remedies: Butterbur, an herb and quercetin, a bioflavonoid (both already mentioned above), can have antihistamine-like effects. And, of course, minimize your time outdoors when pollen levels are high.

A number of studies have linked prayer to healing, and although the results have been inconclusive, what could it hurt to talk to the omnipotent creator of the universe? A prayer for healing might go something like this:
"Dear Lord, please hear me now as I pray for your help with (name your problem). I pray you’ll cleanse my body and heal me completely. In Jesus’ name I pray; Amen."
