At the beginning of every spring (or summer for some), you start hearing a lot of sniffling and sneezing.
This is usually as a result of people suffering from hay fever also known as seasonal allergic rhinitis. A condition which is caused by an allergy to grass or hay pollens.
Common symptoms are a runny and itchy nose, sometimes a blocked nose, sneezing, and itchy eyes.
I started suffering from hay fever when I was 10 years old. Every year the same symptoms would occur!
For those of you who do suffer from hay fever, you only know too well how annoying and frustrating it can be! Most doctors prescribe antihistamine pills which don’t actually combat the source of the problem. They only suppress the symptoms.
|Hay fever is an allergy?|
YES! Hay fever is a result of an allergenic reaction in the body.
Most allergies, if not all, are a result of foreign proteins in the blood (due to them not being digested properly).
The body considers these proteins as foreign invaders and as a result, it releases amongst other things, histamine. Hence, this causes the aforementioned symptoms. ANTI- histamines therefore…I know you know but I’m still going to tell you…yes they block histamine receptors thereby stopping the SYMPTOMS and not the actual CAUSE.
Most people don’t know that you can usually be cured from most allergies.
So you’re wondering what the cure is?
Simple, get rid of those foreign protein molecules in your system. The best and only way (that I know of) is by using proteolytic enzymes. I’m assuming you know what enzymes are, if not, just google it! Not my fault you weren’t listening in biology class
What these enzymes do is amazing! Not only do they digest the foreign protein in your blood and soft tissue, they also have an array of other possible health benefits (depending on which enzyme strands you take) including:
- Reduce inflammation for: Increased heart health, Cancer prevention and recovery, Alzheimer’s prevention, Fibromyalgia, Chronic fatigue, and more
- Cleanse the blood of debris
- Break down and remove Circulating Immune Complexes
- Dissolve arterial plaque
- Dissolve fibrin in the blood, reducing the risk of clots
- Eliminating the risk of DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis)
- Raise the immune system
- Kill bacteria and viruses
- Improve circulation
- Eliminate autoimmune diseases
- Speed up recovery from sprains, strains, fractures, bruises, contusions, and surgery
- Speed up recovery time from workouts
- Help with MS
- Help with arthritis
- Remove plaque from teeth
- Help with sinusitis and asthma
- Dissolve scar tissue
- Aid in detoxing
- Improved body alkalinity
- Reduced risk of osteoporosis
I started taking proteolytic enzymes a few years ago and ever since I have not suffered from hay fever.
So where can I get these enzymes?
I buy them from Jon Barron’s Baseline Nutritionals company in the USA (it takes approximately a week to arrive in the UK – definitely worth the wait!)
They come in capsule form and are easy to take.
Best taken in-between meals (preferably an hour before or an hour after a meal at least).
Check out this in-depth article on proteolytic enzymes by Jon Barron:
Just a side note: Many people wrongly self-diagnose themselves as having an allergy to a certain food or foods, when in actuality it is more of an intolerance to that food as a result of over indulgence in consuming processed foods and not having a varied diet. I read somewhere (don’t ask me where, I forgot, but it stuck in my head so it must’ve been a journal) that only 1% of all allergy claims are true allergies!
Let me know if any of you have had any experience with digestive or proteolytic enzymes with your hay fever, allergies or just your general experience with this supplement.
