Coping with Allergy Season: A Personal Story
April Travis wrote,
Here's what I did: (NOTE: THIS HAS SAVED ME THOUSANDS OF $$ ON ALLERGY MEDICATIONS, ALLERGY SHOTS & IN THE PAST, MISSED TIME FROM WORK. NEEDLESS TO SAY, NO MORE SIDE EFFECTS FROM THOSE HORRIBLE DRUGS AND OVER THE COUNTER MEDS!)
I purchased a Young Living diffuser and diffused "Purification Oil" into a room with the door closed for 20 minutes a day while you are relaxing in the room. This is for the chronic cough. Any molds and allergy causing bacteria in the air cannot live in the presence of this oil. I used "RC" Oil and put 2-3 drops in my hands. Rub them together, cup over nose and inhale 3 times deep. Also put 2 drops on chest and throat. This is a blend of (4) different kinds of eucalyptus and other oils. RC is incredible for breaking up mucus, in the head, the lungs and anywhere else it builds up. RC helped to stop the wheezing and coughing and lets me breathe so much better.
You can also get "Peppermint". If you ever get stopped up and can't breathe thru your nose, you'll love this one. My husband puts 1 drop on his tongue (put tongue on roof of mouth) and then inhales it in 3 times. Then with the oil still on his fingers he rubs a little on the end of his nostrils and inhales again. He can breathe in 1 second after putting it on.
One more oil you should know about is "Lavender". Not only is it called Nature's antihistamine, but it is great for depression. It lifts me up in 3 seconds...when my nose won't stop dripping; it dries me up right away. I'd like to end with this: Something I really realized while yesterday driving home. I was able to roll my windows down while on the road and smell the wonderful smell of fresh cut grass. Something I was never able to do all my life with allergies. If I did this in the past, I'd sneeze probably 20 times in a row and then be a wreck for several hours.
Since using Young Living Products: cleansing, oiling, supplementing, and eating a good diet over the last 4 years, something worked! I can honestly say I AM ALLERGY FREE...and in Texas, where there are trees, molds, dust, grasses, hay, etc.!!! I would have never believed it!
Diet changes I made
I try to eat as healthy as I can - no sugar, no white flour, no dairy, organic vegetables, hormone free chicken, little meat, no coffee or pop, no white bread, no processed foods, and also no chemicals in the household products or personal care products. I believe this has all helped. Recently, 5/2002, I've begun ingesting Eucalyptus Radiata and R. C. blend before bed and for the first time in my life, I am able to sleep with a cat on my bed and still breathe well, no wheezing or sneezing. WHAT A MIRACLE!!!!!!!!!!!! I thought I'd never be able to have furry pets.
Since all allergies happen because of poor digestion and a weak immune system, I started by working on those body systems.
Products I use for allergies, sinus & asthma:
Internally: Cleansing Trio Kit, MultiGreen supplement, Essentialzyme supplement (enzymes), Sulfurzyme (a must have).
Externally: R.C. Oil Blend, Purification Oil Blend, Peppermint Oil, Lavender Oil, Diffuser,
