Science-Backed Natural Choices for Allergies

By Eric Spinner, CNC


40 Million Americans Suffer with Allergies. Many people deal with runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes, and itchy throats due to seasonal hay fever allergies in spring and fall. For some people these symptoms are a yearlong struggle due to molds, dust mites, and animal dander as well. The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, estimates that over 16 million office visits a year are attributed to allergic rhinitis (allergies), with costs totaling over $6 billion.

Allergy sufferers may choose from prescription drugs, OTC drugs, and natural supplements. Many of the prescription drugs and OTC drugs have an array of side effects, which may make consumers hesitate to try them, and Doctors hesitate to prescribe them. Many natural choices contain the herb Ephedra, which is controversial in its side effects. Ephedra based products are not the only available choice, and new and promising scientific research on an array of natural remedies provides safe and effective choices for allergic individuals.

MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), an organic sulfur compound found in all plants and animals, has been the subject of a recent multi centered study for seasonal allergies. The study involved 42 people with allergies to grass, weeds, fungi, trees and shrubs, and was conducted in the spring to ensure high levels of airborne allergens. Each person took 2600mg of OptiMSM for 30 days and was monitored every 7 days. By day 7, total upper respiratory symptoms were significantly reduced, and this continued through day 30. Lower respiratory symptoms improved by day 21 and continued to improve by day 30. Energy levels also significantly improved by day 14 and continued to improve through day 30.

Aller-7 – a combination of seven Ayurvedic herbs used for centuries in Indian traditional medicine- has been in research for 10 years. Most recently Aller-7 has been the subject of multi-center, double blind, placebo-controlled study, making it the most studied natural ingredient of its kind. Aller-7 was shown to support normal respiratory function in the presence of airborne allergens.

Promotes clear airway passages and easy breathing, and stabilizes mast cells, which promote respiratory health. Aller-7 also neutralizes free radicals, which can damage the body’s immune and respiratory systems. I am excited to offer this new addition to our product line to my clients. Along with the other effective natural supplements I have already used so successfully, such as Stinging Nettles, Quercitin, Bromelain, Vit- C with bioflavonoids, and a wide assortment of gentle Homeopathic remedies.
