Spring is in the air which for many people means one thing is coming….ALLERGIES!
As someone who has struggled with allergies, I feel the pain of having a non stop stuffy nose, itchy eyes, runny nose, scratchy throat, the list goes on. I’ve been tested for allergies and pretty much tested positive for everything you can think of…grass, mold, dust, cats, dogs, trees, pollen, the list goes on! Last year was one of the worst allergy seasons for me and also hardest because I could not take anything (due to breastfeeding). Thankfully, I have found great relief with Shaklee products and so have many of my family and friends have too (check out some testimonies below).
A three-fold approach is what we recommend when combating allergies:
- Strengthen the immune system (see below)
- Avoid products that could aggravate allergy and sinus conditions such as certain foods and cleaning products. Many cleaning products not only irritate the skin, but their odors can aggravate upper respiratory problems. Fragrance is a huge source of irritation for allergy suffers. Fragrance is found in a ton of products, just see below.
- Change your diet. Diary, gluten, and sugar are a huge source of complications for the majority of people. Simply eliminating these three things and adding in more fruits and vegetables can play a huge role in your health! Diary and gluten adds lots of mucus and often causes people who have allergies to suffer worst symptoms. And we all know how harmful sugar is, but it weakens our immune system.

Vitamin C has been found to protect against smog, poor diet, stress, bruising, varicose and spider veins, chronic infection, allergies, asthma, cold, flu, swollen glands, anemia, colon polyps, and slow healing.
Vitamin C, E, and B Complex are the most vitamin deficiencies and Selenium and Magnesium are the most common mineral deficiencies.

Scientist now believe 70% of the immune system is located in the gut…a good place to start to strengthen the immune system against allergic reactions. There appears to be a surprising correlation between symptoms of upper respiratory congestion and sinus discomfort due to poor elimination in the lower intestine. This is often associate with an overgrowth of Candida yeast organisms. An increasing number of Americans suffer from Candida when the essential friendly microbes Nature intended to reside in our intestines get destroyed by medications such as antibiotics, steroid based drugs (e.g. asthma medications), oral contraceptives, and more. Couple this with a diet culture so entrenched in sweets, breads, baked goods, chips, and snacks that are the favorite foods of the Candida organisms.
Start with the Optiflora probiotic capsule….a patented technology that allows the very fragile probiotics to pass through the highly acidic stomach protected by a triple encapsulation so they arrive at exactly the right location in the lower intestines.

I had struggled with allergies for 15 years, and it seemed like the symptoms grew worse every year. Soon the Claritin I took every day during warmer months wasn’t enough. I started taking Zyrtec – a much stronger medication – every day, even in the winter. Without it, my eyes and nose itched and breathing was more difficult. To make matters worse, my son also dealt with severe allergies. Even though he got allergy shots for two years, he still had to take Zyrtec and nasal spray year-round just to make going outside bearable. Seeing the side effects listed on the bottle, such as drowsiness to the point where it’s dangerous to drive was especially alarming! I was desperate for a solution, so I started doing some research. It was surprising to find that allergies are actually caused in part by a weakened immune system, according to Raymond Francis, an MIT-trained scientist and author of “Never Be Sick Again.”After making some very simple changes to my family’s lifestyle, both my and my son’s allergies went away for good. By two months, I was off all my allergy medications, and by four months, my son was off all of his medications too! I honestly couldn’t believe how easy it was
My son used to get skin reactions whenever he had diary, after he was on the shaklee supplements for several months his allergies/asthma improved so much. He can now even have diary (in moderation) back in his diet!
I have been taking Alfalfa and NutriFeron for my allergies and asthma and have been symptom free since last summer!
