Allergies abound even here at the beach. If you want to get rid your allergies you will need to stop them at their source. Natural medicine believes that allergies are almost always related to imbalances in the gut. Believe it or not 80% of the immune system is located in the intestines so to be successful we must focus there. Then we need to relieve the symptoms.
Here are some suggestions to Support the immune system in the gut:
Use Bragg’s apple cider vinegar before meals to support good gut bacteria. 1-2 Tb. In warm water is recommended. There are capsules too if you don’t like the taste or add some local raw honey.
Take a probiotic. Probiotics consist of the friendly bacteria and will recharge your immune system and help block the histamine that leads to so many symptoms.
