Let’s face it, allergies can make your life a misery… the constant sneezing, wheezing, tight chest, feeling out of breath, itchy watery or red eyes (conjunctivitis), hives and a scratchy cough that just won’t go away. Other common allergy symptoms also include a runny or blocked nose (allergic rhinitis), swollen lips, tongue, eyes or face and tummy pain or feeling sick, vomiting or diarrhoea and dry, red and cracked skin.
Ask anyone who suffers with allergies and they’ll tell you that these stressful symptoms can make your life a living hell… and it may feel to sufferers that there is no end in sight to their misery.
These distressing symptoms are immune responses to a substance (like pollen, food or fur dust) to which your body has become hypersensitive. While the mainstream has come up with many so-called ‘remedies’ that may appear to be effective, these only suppress allergy symptoms for a short while… and before you know it, they crop up again… and when the symptoms do creep up on you again, they may do so many time more intense and relentless than before.
Worst still, some of these mainstream treatments can have damaging side effects, like a popular asthma drug that can cause hyperactivity, irrational temper tantrums, depression, suicidal thoughts, suicidal behaviour and even suicide… and it is prescribed to children as young as 12 years old. Suffice it to say, pharmaceutical drugs like these should be taken under the strictest caution… but often they are not.
The Daily Health has made it our mission to stay up to date with the latest ground-breaking research on natural and safe alternatives that can help bring lasting relief to your allergies, ranging from hay fever, skin irritation and even asthma. Most of these alternatives come with minimal side effects and are proven to be just as effective as their pharmaceutical counterparts.
