A Natural Approach to Seasonal Allergies
If you're one of the estimated 30 to 50 million seasonal allergies sufferers, you know how bittersweet the passing of the seasons can be. Because in light of the warming sun, blooming foliage and singing robins, spring also welcomes some less desirable attributes. Runny noses, watery eyes, scratchy throats and uncontrollable sneezing episodes can make this otherwise peaceful transition, a miserable one.
As the symptoms make their presence known, gut reaction tells you to stock up on OTC and physician prescribed allergy medications. Sure, these may offer temporary relief, but keep in mind that this "relief" does not come without some very concerning side effects. Many anti-histamines cause drowsiness. Decongestants have been shown to raise blood pressure and cause irritability. Corticosteroids can spark weight gain, fluid retention and weakness. Bronchodilators can generate a rapid heart beat. Mast stabilizers can cause rashes, and the list goes on. When you consider the side effects, the allergies don't seem like such a bad alternative.
A simple understanding of what causes allergies can make preventing them far easier than controlling them. Allergic reactions are essentially the result of over-anxious immune systems. When the immune system detects a non-threat allergen, it attacks. This attack triggers the release of histamine - the immune system's biological siren, if you will. And despite the key role that it plays in immune response, an overproduction or inappropriate release of histamine can send the body into a frenzy of false alarms.
Ultimately, managing allergies is as simple as eliminating toxins, controlling histamine and supporting the immune system. One of the best ways to achieve this is through fresh herbal extracts. Nature's Apothecary has become one of the most respected names in the industry. By staying true to the whole herb, they products embody the medicinal properties of the botanical they were derived from. Most important, they give users the freedom to support their health naturally, without the worry of dangerous side effects.

Detox Formula - As we enjoy many activities indoors and out, we need to be watchful of the toxins around us. The blood that filters through our liver utilizes the toxins, and can deposit them anywhere in the body. This can result in fever, sores in the mouth, boils, fatigue, acne and more. This is your body's way of telling you that your liver needs a cleanse, as it should be twice a year.
