Spring is often thought of as the time for allergies, but really any change of season can trigger allergies and asthma. But what is it about moving into autumn that gets you itching and sneezing? For many people a drop in the temperature is enough of a trigger, and when the humidity drops the air becomes drier and is more likely to irritate a sensitive respiratory system. You may be bringing winter clothes out of storage in moth balls and dust is being stirred up. All of these and more could trigger your allergies or asthma. In my practice I have been investigating new natural solutions to provide greater relief from allergy symptoms than ever before. ALLERGIES ARE NOTHING TO SNEEZE AT! …to read more follow the link below my pic!

While allergy and asthma appear to be caused by outside triggers, such as dust, pollen, dry air and stressful events, the underlying problem actually lies within us. Both allergy and asthma occur when a particular part of our immune system is out of balance. Our immune system is designed to protect us from infections and to keep us healthy. Allergy occurs when your immune system mistakes something that is normally harmless as being a threat to you and while “protecting” you from it, creates a strong inflammatory response. This infl-ammatory response is what produces the symptoms that you experience as allergy. In asthma this infl-ammation presents as dif-ficulty breathing or may trigger an asthma attack. BREATHE EASY; HELP IS AT HAND Many of us know licorice as a confectionery, but did you know that licorice is a very e ffective herb for the treatment of allergy and asthma? Licorice is an immune regulator, meaning that it helps to bring a wayward immune system back into balance. Licorice is particularly helpful at relieving all types of allergy as well as asthma, because it addresses the underlying immune problem in these conditions. Importantly, you won’t get this same effect from just eating the lolly, you need the strong herbal formula to do the trick. Combining licorice with the Chinese remedies Reiishi mushroom and Sophora root creates a potent formula with great effectiveness against allergy and asthma. With over 4000 years of use in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Reiishi mushroom is tried and trusted in the treatment of asthma and allergy, providing relief for symptoms such as wheezing, tight chest and coughing. Sophora root is also outstanding in its ability to relax the lungs, making it highly eff ective for asthma. The fact that these herbs also prevent and treat eczema, dermatitis, itching skin and eyes and hayfever tells us that their benefit actually comes from correcting the underlying immune problem. This combination of herbs does not just suppress symptoms, but creates real healing, genuinely improving your health.
