Feel Great Even During Allergy Season

Allergy is the main cause of asthma and other respiratory tract ailments. Most types of asthma like bronchial asthma, cough variant asthma and exercise induced asthma are caused by allergy.

One in 10 Americans suffer from pollen allergies, and spring is when many first get the sneezy, runny nose, itchy eyes, and congestion that accompany the allergy. There’s no way to escape pollen, which is nature’s way of making babies.

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) announced its 2012 Spring Allergy Capitals. The annual report, which identifies the 100 “most challenging” U.S. cities to live in with spring allergies, is based on a scientific analysis of three factors including pollen scores, number of allergy medications used per patient, and number of board certified allergists per patient.

Think you live in one those spring allergy capitals? Here are the top 10:

1) Knoxville, TN (2) McAllen, TX (3) Louisville, KY (4) Jackson, MS (5) Wichita, KS (6) Oklahoma City, OK (7) Chattanooga, TN (8) Memphis, TN   (9) San Antonio, TX (10)Dayton, OH

No matter what city you live in, there are safe,  easy, and effective steps to help manage and relieve symptoms of spring allergies—including how you clean and keep your home.

You can reduce the number of outdoor allergens, such as pollen and mold, from entering the home by keeping windows and doors closed. Diffuse Therapeutic-grade essential oils  and clean with safe, chemical free products.

Some of the oils and products we like to use:  Thieves, Purification, CypressLemon MyrtleR.C., Raven, Dorado AzulFrankincensePeppermint, Eucalyptus, Myrtle, Hyssop and Thieves Household Cleaner.

When using a lot of the cleaning sprays, they suggest you leave the house for several hours after cleaning to air it out. That tells me that they are not safe to use let alone inhale while cleaning!

When you use chemical free products and pure, unaltered, therapeutic-grade essential oils you don’t have to worry about them harming you if you inhale them or leaving your home.

Other things that you can do…

Plan outdoor activities for after lunch or in the early evening to avoid the extreme pollen of the morning.

Avoid cow’s milk products, cheese, yogurt, cottage cheese. They are detrimental to respiratory issues. Goat’s milk, cheese and yogurt are considered to be a benefit to anyone suffering respiratory ailments. This will help in reducing asthma.

So many people feel they have to choose between suffering and taking medications, that harm other functions.

Asthma, allergies, and other respiratory issues CAN BE and HAVE BEEN brought under control by diet and without the use of pharmaceutical or OTC drugs.

Here is what others are saying:

“Asthma does run in my family. I get it in the summer due to my allergies. My husband has been an asthmatic for 18 yrs. so bad that he has stopped breathing twice. Since introduced to the oils, he uses RC and Cypress twice daily on the lung areas of his feet, and he hasn’t used his nebulizer for almost a year. The RC opens up the lungs, and the Cypress will pull out any fluid that is irritating. The doctor told him that he used to be his worst asthma patient, he and can’t figure out why he is so much better.” Judy


We used four different oils for my husband’s severe allergies. These oils were Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Myrtle and RC. I layered these on his feet (especially sinus points) and used two, varying the two, over his sinuses, (careful, they can irritate). He experienced 99% relief from his allergies this spring! That is truly amazing because he has suffered with them for over 7 years and used every medication from over-the-counter to prescription. I also diffused the oils in the bedroom while he slept. We only did this about three to five times.” Susan


In my early twenties, I began developing Asthma and began taking the conventional medication. This seemed to help for a while, but eventually I began to get worse and I developed allergies and really bad sinus problems. Also digestion problems. Also gained weight from steroids. I personally believe that these medications just suppress the symptoms and not help the body to heal the original cause. Of course, it was easier to just keep taking the medication and not do the hard work that it took to really get my health under control.

When I started I went through 3 sets of the Cleansing Trio. To digest your food is very important. The digestive enzymes (Essentialzyme, Detoxzyme) were and continue to be excellent in digesting my food. I noticed for myself that if I ate something and it didn’t digest properly, I would begin to wheeze in my lungs. Amazing! In the beginning, I used the essential oils, RC, Raven, Frankincense (This was the best…even used it in a suppository when I gained more confidence that hey, these oils can help my body to heal).

Just one more thing, I did get worse before I got better. After three months, my Asthma was worse and I was about to give up on the products, when my friend encouraged me to stick with it and sure enough by 4 months, 5 months, things began to turn around.

Today, thank God, three years later, I am on no medication whatsoever. I do get occasional wheezing which can be traced to my own shortcoming… not drinking enough water, eating too much dairy or wheat. All I have to do is put some Frankincense on my chest or RC and usually a couple hours, sometimes even minutes, my lungs are clear again.

Hope this of help. Asthma can be brought under control. I can’t even explain what a wonderful feeling it is to live life as a healthy human being and not be dependent on drugs to feel well.” Ernestine, Certified Holistic Health Counselor
