Seasonal allergies: what are the natural treatments?

Allergies have increased sharply in recent decades. In Western countries, one in four people has clinical symptoms of allergies.Allergic respiratory diseases affect nearly 90 million Europeans and 65 million people in the United States.

Allergy is an inappropriate reaction of the immune system to a substance that is foreign (allergen) to the body. The number of people affected continues to increase from year to year.

The main pathogens that cause allergies

Many substances in our environment can cause allergic problems:

  • pollens,
  • mites,
  • certain foods (strawberries, crustaceans, peanuts, soybeans, beans, eggs, fish, vegetables, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, mustard seeds, cow’s milk proteins…),
  • insects, pets, cockroaches,
  • Medicines,
  • mold,
  • Latex,
  • Jewelry components.

The allergic reaction mechanism

The biological phenomenon leading to the development of an allergy is realized from two successive phases: an initial phase of asymptomatic “sensitization” (without symptoms) and a second phase of symptomatic “allergic reaction” (with symptoms).

Awareness: first contact

This phase begins when the individual first comes into contact with the allergen. It is then recognized and considered a dangerous substance by certain cells of the immune system present in large quantities at the level of the skin and mucous membranes. These cells will present the allergen on their surface and allow the production of Immunoglobulins E (also called IgE, these are antibodies produced by the immune system in response to external aggression) by other cells.

Allergic reaction (later contact)

During subsequent contact between the allergen and the “sensitized” organism, the allergen will attach to the IgE present on the surface of the mast cells (regulatory cells essential for modulating inflammatory and allergic processes), causing the activation of mast cells.The release of histamine and mediators from inflammation is observed.Histamine plays a key role in the allergic reaction.

Natural Treatments for Allergies

Herbal medicine to fight allergies:

  • Cassis: cassis (Ribes nigrum) is commonly used by traditional medicine to control allergy symptoms. Polysaccharide extracted from blackc blackc blackc anddy has been shown to relieve eye and nasal symptoms.

We advise you to use it in the form of EPS mixed equally with turmeric to strengthen the anti-inflammatory action and boost immunity.

  • Nettle: Nettle contains a substance that acts as a natural antihistamine. In particular, it soothes the symptoms of hay fever (clogged nose and watery eyes). Dried nettle leaf capsules can be purchased at health food stores. Take 300 mg three times a day, and increase the dosage (to 500 or 700 mg) if ineffective.
  • Ginseng Panax ginseng extract contains ginsenosides, which have antiallergic action in cell membranes and help soothe inflammation caused by allergies.
  • Ginkgo biloba Ginkgo biloba, best known for its positive effects on memory, is also an effective antiallergic because it contains ginkgolides, substances that oppose the chemicals that trigger allergies (platelet activation factor).You can take up to 240 mg a day.
  • Plantain: Plantain is anti-histamine. It inhibits mast cell defrosting. In the form of infusions, plantain will mostly calm allergic asthma.

Micro-nutrition to fight allergies:

  • Omega-3: Omega-3s are a good natural treatment for inflammation in general, and can therefore reduce the inflammatory reactions associated with allergy. These fatty acids are particularly present in salmon, sardines, tuna and mackerel. If you prefer to take fish oil in capsules, choose a supplementation combining EPA and DHA (the two most active forms of omega-3). dosage is 500 to 1000 mg of EPA/DHA per day.Flaxseed oil is also a good source of omega-3 to naturally treat allergies. You can take a tablespoon a day, for example, by adding it to a dressing or fruit juice or incorporating it into a dessert. Avoid heating it.
  • Quercetin: Quercetin, a pigment that gives black grapes its purple colour and green tea its green colour, inhibits the release of histamine.(Warning: do not take quercetin at the same time as nettle capsules, as nettles also contain quercetin.)

For a complete action on the body, you can also turn to the Food Supplement Polanine of Green Health Laboratories which is a complex of 13 natural active ingredients: Livèche (anti-oedemateuse), Hysope (mucolytic and pulmonary analgesic), Andrographis (anti-inflammatory action on the upper respiratory tract), quercetine, quercetine, Large chamomile (for its action on headaches), Turmeric, Black pepper, manganese (calm the process of inflammation)

Gemotherapy to fight allergies

With the Allargem complex which:

  1. Rebalancing the allergic terrain
  2. Quickly provides relief
  3. Maintains vitality without habituation
  4. Boosts immune defenses

3 extracts compose this complex for a strengthened and optimal action:

  • The blackcurrant bud: is a major anti-allergic. It tones the endocrine glands and especially the adrenal glands, which naturally increases the level of cortisol in the blood. The cassis was once known as the most powerful counterpoison. It is effective in any allergic manifestation.
  • The romarin young shoot: exerts an anti-toxic action on the liver. It traps free radicals and effectively fights fatigue and drowsiness. Thanks to its action, the body eliminates allergic toxins.
  • Propolis: known as a hive antibiotic, increases the body’s resistance. this vegetable putty is harvested by the bee on the buds of some trees and aromatic plants. It therefore pairs perfectly with other buds. Its anti-allergic, anti-viral and antibiotic action is due to the presence of aromatic resins (flavonosides, essential oils) which are powerful stimulants of the immune system (increased antibody synthesis). It has a privileged effect on the respiratory system.

To conclude:

Finally, to naturally fight allergies, it is recommended to make a detox of the liver: it is the liver that manages the histamine of our body.

When it is overworked and is clogged, a series of health problems, of which allergies are part, follow. Because the mucous membranes are congested, they cannot do their job properly and fight irritants. To start treating this problem, a detox is a good way.Indeed, it will allow the body to be able to fight allergies

The leading plants for a general detox of the liver are artichoke, and black radish.For more widespread action on the body, they may also be associated with smoke or Marie coal. For optimal effectiveness of your detox and strengthen your immune system, it is also advisable to perform several cures of three weeks, one in the spring, one in the fall and one the following spring…
