Spring is upon us! With all the beautiful blooms and blossoms comes tree pollen. Itchy and watery eyes, swollen skin, eyes and lips, and upper-respiratory problems such as sneezing, wheezing, coughing, and a runny nose are among some of the symptoms you may experience in the coming months.
Over the counter allergy medications come with many unwanted side effects including drowsiness, muscle weakness, fatigue, dry mouth, weight gain, depression, reduced sex drive, heart palpitations, insomnia, anxiety, irritability, fast or irregular heartbeat, tremors, increased blood pressure, infertility, and loss of appetite.
There are natural alternatives to Claritin and Zyrtec:
Histoplex® is a broad-spectrum herbal formula with natural antihistamines. Good for use with food allergies/sensitivities and immune support. It Supplies a proprietary blend of herbal extracts shown to possess immunomodulating properties.
Histoplex-AB® is a broad-spectrum herbal formula with natural antihistamines, and herbal extracts shown to have immune modulating properties. Good with airborne allergies, sinus congestion, respiratory distress, and red or itchy eyes. It supplies a proprietary blend of herbal extracts shown to possess immunomodulating properties.
To determine which one is the best to use, remember a quick and easy functional test you can perform. Touch your toes and measure the range of motion. If histamines are high you will have reduced flexibility. Put one of the Histoplex on your tongue and measure your range. Re perform the test with Histoplex-AB on your tongue. If you observe an increase in flexibility you will know that product will work best for their bio-chemical individuality. Both products take a week or two to build up in the system for maximum results. You can finish using each product and then stick with the one that works best.
