Counter Allergies with Natural Health Remedies

The weather is turning cold in the last few weeks and I’m geared up for the autumn season. Being our first autumn in this new home, I’m ardent in getting all the natural health remedies in place for a stronger immune system during this cold season. More so, I’ve always had allergies issues so I really need to be more prepared for the season change.

I read that almost 40 percent of the human population will suffer from allergies at some point in their lives. Allergies refer to common symptoms such as itchy eyes, stuffy nose, coughing and sneezing. These can make one feels tired and weak. Many people often wonder if they can avoid allergies by doing things differently in their day-to-day routines. If you know something about natural health remedies, you would know that dust mites, pollens and mold can trigger allergies for those who have sensitivities. Different factors determine the levels of these substances on a regular basis. If pollen levels are high, you will be more likely to suffer from allergies. The best way to avoid these substances is to stay indoors and to dust and clean often. If you go outside, make sure you shower or bathe as soon as you return home. This will wash off any unwanted substances like pollen or dust which may be on your clothing or your body. One of the natural health remedies for this is to get a air purifier or take some quercetin supplements. I was telling hubby that we should look into a good Medicare plan for our family so that we are well covered for any medical attention.

Another thing to note is that if your immune system is too weak to fight off the allergies, you will end up suffering for a good part of the year. Your immune system may be weak for a couple of reasons. As far as natural health remedies is concerned, you would need to get enough vitamins and minerals for your immune system. If you don’t, it can become ineffective in fighting allergies and other forms of viruses or infections. Also, your immune system may be low due to mental stress. Mental stress can make you physically weak and cause your body to shut-down. When this happens, your immune system shuts down as well. To strengthen your immune system make sure you get lots of vitamins, eat a healthy diet and avoid stress as much as possible.

Care for Your Body With Holistic Treatment for Warts and Eczema

I often find that we tend to take our health for granted. Most of us will only search for health answers or any holistic treatment when we run into any health alerts. If not, we will continue our lifestyle and probably take very little time to care for our body and mind.

Over the years, more people are becoming more aware of natural health remedies and how it can help them to treat certain ailments without the use of synthetic drugs. I have to stress that I’m not against any pharmaceutical drug use. There is a time where the body may need to drugs to alleviate certain symptoms but it should not be a long term solution. We should learn to take charge of our own health so the decision is still ours.

Take for instance, you may be trying to remove warts naturally and instead of using steroid creams, you may want to look into holistic treatment options or home remedies. I have read that a popular home remedy to remove warts naturally is by using duct tape. If you are interested to try out this home remedy, you will need to apply duct tape to your warts. You would need to cover your warts for about a week. After that, remove it, soak your wart in water, and then scrub it with a pumice stone.  If your wart does not come off right away, you are advised to repeat the procedure again, for at least another one to two weeks. It is important to note that when using home remedies for wart removal, results are often not guaranteed. Just because one home remedy worked for someone else, it does not mean that it will also work for you.

Heal Warts is another holistic treatment for warts removal without chemicals or drugs. You just need to apply a few drops on the affected areas and it is proven to counteract the warts virus including all body warts, warts, anal warts, plantar warts gently and effectively.

After an eczema sufferer, I used to apply steroid creams prescribed by skin specialists but after learning about how steroid creams can ‘thin’ the skin, I decided to switch to natural remedies. One of the first steps is to avoid using body washes or soaps with petrochemicals, artificial preservatives and harmful ingredients. If possible, switch to natural skin care if you are suffering from eczema. Also check out Heal Eczema for an effective and natural treatment for your eczema problems.

I have also stopped using strong cleaning detergents at home due to my sensitive skin. When I bought my farmhouse sinks few months ago, I made it a point to only use eco and natural cleaners for the household.

I hope by now, you are realizing the importance of taking charge of your own health. If you purpose in your heart to seek out natural health remedies or holistic treatment for a particular health ailment, you will find it. Learn to care for yourself and your health. Be passionate about life.

Holistic Treatment and Natural Health Remedies for Allergies and Asthma

Lately, I have been searching holistic treatment for allergies and asthma. It was only in the recent years that I found out that they are related to each other.

After speaking to several Chinese doctors and naturopaths, I understand that a weak immune system may be the underlying cause of allergies and asthma. Medical experts agree that a lowered or improperly functioning immune system can and does result in several diseases such as asthma, allergies, arthritis, psoriasis, lupus, chronic fatigue syndrome and cancer to name just a few.

Antigens are large protein molecules of bacteria, viruses, chemicals and other substances that appear harmful from entering your body and our body’s immune systems form a barrier and work as the first line of defense against these diseases. The barriers include your skin, mucus, cough reflex, stomach acid and even enzymes in your tears, which destroy toxins. If the antigen or toxin manages to get past these barriers, then the immune system launches a second line of defense, found in your blood. They are white blood cells, which perform a protective function by seeking out and destroying foreign protein antigens.

Unfortunately, there is no “magic cure” that you can take to quickly repair your immune system, but there are several natural remedies adn holistic ways to help build and support it by providing your body with proper nutrition, regular exercise, adequate rest, relaxation and maintaining a positive mental attitude.[DFR::453517588-6374-ss|align_right_1]

A holistic treatment to protect and strengthen the immune system would require you to follow these steps:

1. Limit saturated and trans fats, food additives and alcohol
2. Take a good quality multi-vitamin/mineral supplement daily
3. Ensure your diet includes adequate protein
4. Take 1000 mg of Vitamin C daily.
5. Eat 3 to 4 servings of vegetables daily.
6. Eat 3 to 4 servings of legumes weekly.
7. Eat 3 to 4 servings of omega-3 fatty acid-rich foods weekly
8. Avoid late nights and get adequate sleep

Any holistic treatment or natural health remedies you embark on is never an overnight process. The time to heal differs from one to another. It can take three months to two years. Children tend to heal much more quickly than adults or the elderly. People with allergies and asthma will find that their asthma and allergy symptoms become less frequent and less severe when their immune systems become stronger.
