I've had allergies as far back as I can remember. Asthma as a child, chronic strep throat, and ear infections. Immunology injections for known allergies. Constantly on some kind of medicine, from steroids, antihistamines, and so forth. Scratch tests when I was five. I finally out grew the asthma around sixteen. Very disheartening to a kindergartner that just wants to be like every one else.
As far as what to do, I've done many things, as my asthma came back, when I got older, ten fold. I am verrrry allergic to mold, and dust. Chronic bronchitis,chronic hives, ear infections, sinus infections, and so forth from the excess mucus. A circle of sickness you might say. Until i got fed up!! Fed up with inhalers, and steriods, and the whole mess of it.
Natural holistic medicine was my turning point. It takes time, and determination.
Among the most helpful steps where:
Avoid what you are allergic to, get the immune system to calm down, treat any underlying infection, as well as any nutrient deficiency.
Immunology is probably the most effective treatment out there. Most insurance companies cover the shots. I found a line of homeopathic immunolgist products that treat the allergy. 15 drops under the tongue, until you no longer are allergic. I used the mold yeast and dust one, simply because that was what i was allergic to. They have an entire line of products, for just about any allergy you could have.
Bioallers Mold, Yeast and Dust, 1-Ounce
Qbc, is a natural decongestant, and anti histamine, no side effects.
To get the immune system to calm down, beta gucan.
