Spring is here along with all the pollen issues; allergy eyes, lung congestion, skin outbreaks. Below are several herbal suggestions for clearing and or preventing the springtime allergy season.
Ensure the bowels are moving well. Constipation is a major cause for allergy issues. The waste trapped in the bowel is picked up by the blood and recycled throughout the body. Holding toxic waste in the bowel, (body)is never a good idea. Use the LBF #1 Formula (Lower Bowel Formula #1) as needed to ensure healthy regular elimination is occurring.
One bowel movement a day is not enough. Over the years many members have assured me their bowels are working fine only for me to discover fine in their minds is one movement in the morning. We were created to have a bowel movement in the morning and after every major meal. Meaning to function well the bowels should move three or more times a day.
The Liver dumps waste into the colon during the night. The liver is active during the night filling the colon with waste which is normally eliminated first thing upon rising in the morning. This accounts for the early morning movement many assume is the only one needed.
Chewing and swallowing food enact the peristaltic (The wavelike muscular contractions which pushes ingested food through the digestive tract.) The meal currently being consumed is moved to the stomach and small intestine. The meal from before which has been resting, being absorbed in the small intestine is now pushed on into the colon and the meal resting in the colon is moved on for elimination from the body.
This is how we were made to function. Three meals only in the body at any given time. If you are eating dinner, then lunch is moving from your small intestine to your colon and breakfast is up for elimination within an hour or so of your meal.
Flush your liver. Do an ELF (Emergency Liver Flush). The liver is our internal vacuum cleaner. When the liver is full of waste it is unable to process toxins out properly. As an alternative of eliminating through normal channels it begins to push waste out through any number of areas. A favorite is the Skin, which will breakdown quickly when used to eliminate the toxic waste from the liver, resulting in hives, blisters, scaly red patches ect.
Allergy Eyes: Eliminate the itchy, watery eyes by flushing the eyes with the Eyebright formula.
Congestion issues: Relief or prevention of the Runny nose, and congested lungs associated with allergy season can be supported with the A&H formula (Allergy & Hay fever formula.
More information on Allergies and Hay fever is available in our Allergy Information Sheet which can be downloaded from the “ladyofherbs.com” site.
