Treating Allergic Rhinitis naturally by optimizing our immune response

Treating Allergic Rhinitis
I've had allergic rhinitis for as long as I can remember

In fact, before ASEA, I couldn’t imagine my life without allergies. The constant sneezing and nose leaking was already part of my personality. I was tested for allergies when i was in my mid-thirties. Here are the things I’m allergic to:

  • cats
  • dogs
  • shrimp
  • grass
  • dust
  • mold
  • sugar
  • dairy
  • wheat

I always know when a place is dusty and dirty because i start sneezing immediately and my nose will not stop running. I always know when I’ve eaten too much sugar because my nose starts running. My body has been warning me all these years and instead of listening to the warning, my doctors were prescribing medication that stopped the mucus without addressing the cause of it.

My years of research has brought me to this: allergic rhinitis is an immune response. Your body is warning you of impending inflammation (allergic rhinitis) — you have to figure out how to stop the inflammation from its root cause: by fixing your immune system! Your gut health is part of that immune system.

Synthetic OTC’s (Nasonex and Zyrtec) for Allergic Rhinitis

To help with my allergies I was taking zyrtec and nasonex. both prescribed by doctors. Nasonex did something to my nose and I’m not able to smell properly now. I have to go closer to the object to actually smell something. After taking zyrtec for over 10 years, my joints started feeling stiff and brittle. Zyrtec’s mode of operation is to suppress mucus, and because of that it also suppresses mucus your body needs in order to function in its optimized state. Both nasonex and zyrtec are terrible to use because they suppress systems within your body that need to function properly. I’ve learnt the hard way that synthetic drugs do more harm than good and that I should’ve started looking for natural remedies when I was much younger. Unfortunately I was already in my forties when I realized all this. I had a 20-year history of using antihistamines and other synthetic drugs. My gut health probably suffered the most. My gall bladder was removed in my early thirties, because I didn’t know better.

In school, we taught so much useless stuff but nothing about health and nutrition, nothing about our body’s amazing ability to heal itself. It’s so frustrating. Education really needs a revamp.

Natural Alternatives for Allergic Rhinitis

When I started researching for naturally remedies for allergies I came across quercetin. Quercetin is essentially a flavanoid. It is an antioxidant and naturally comes from fruits and vegetables. Quercetin has no long-term studies so there is no safety profile for it for long-term use. Quercetin is definitely a better alternative to using zyrtec.

Meta analysis of Quercetin for allergic rhinitis can be found in the links below: “Quercetin with the potential effect on allergic diseases”

“Quercetin and its anti-allergic immune response”

I find it ironic that zyrtec is marketed so everyone knows about it but you only discover quercetin if you do your own research.

Please note however that taking quercetin is a stop-gap measure, it doesn’t actually address the source of the issue, which is your immune health.

ASEA addresses Immune health

One of ASEA’s core strengths is supporting our natural immune system. There was an 8-week study that showed a 20-31% increase in gene expression abundance in our natural immune system. ASEA, essentially, enables our cells to repair and communicate with each other – a breakthrough in modern healthcare technology. There is no other supplement like it.

After drinking 60 ml of ASEA daily for about a month, and then using a portable nebulizer for about 30 minutes for 2 consecutive days, I woke up one morning and my nose was not running. It was the first time that has ever happened. I was teary-eyed when I realized that for the first time in a long time, I didn’t have to pull out my handkerchief.
