Stinging Nettle, Quercetin, Honey & Propolis for Allergies
Allergy season is here, and let’s face it, potential side effects from the drugs our medical doctors want to give us are very scary to say the least. By picking something natural this allergy season, side effects are something you won’t have to worry about.
Listed below are the top two herbs I give to customers to treat their allergies but also the dosage you should be taking. Hope this helps you.
Nettle is good for all types of allergies. It reduces inflammation in the nasal cavity while helping with sneezing and itching.
Take 300 mg three times daily
Quercetin is a natural antihistamine. Some people always look for the “activated” quercetin. All the quercetin I sell is “activated” even though it may not say it on the label. Just remember to buy from reputable companies.
Take 500 to 1000 mg three times daily
Many quercetin products also contain bromelain and vitamin C. The three work together for better absorption of quercetin and bringing down the inflammation.
If you are using bee products to help with allergies it is ideal to purchase honey or propolis made in your area. The closer the hive is to your location, the better. This way you are introduced to a very small amount of pollen which desensitizes to the local pollen found in your locality.
