Summertime in New Zealand is here and the air is full of bee’s buzzing and plumes of pollen. This sudden increase in pollen and changeable weather can wreak havoc on your system. Resulting in allergies, hay fever and rashes.
External natural and chemical environmental factors do play their part with allergies. However, allergic symptoms may also be an indication that our internal system needs a spring clean, in particular, the liver.
The role of the liver is to clean the blood; its our filtering organ, and everything we eat, drink, absorb, medicate with, will pass through the liver. After winter, illness or if we are lacking certain essential nutrients our liver can become overloaded and as a result will not be filtering as well as it should be. And when our liver is not cleaning up after us – things like histamine can sit in our blood for too long and at too high levels and this results in those all too familiar allergic symptoms.
What can you do? – There are a few easy things you can do to help your liver restore back to filtering efficiency.
- Reduce alcohol.
- Maintain gentle, regular exercise.
- Drink plenty of water, add some freshly squeezed lemon juice! or a slug of ACV or Kombucha.
- Eat a healthy balanced diet – fresh fruit and vegetables, spray free or organic.
- Get a good night’s sleep of at least 8 hours.
How can homeopathy help? – You can also support your system with homeopathic remedies to assist the body during times of acute allergic episodes. There are also a range of homeopathic remedies that have an affinity with the liver and these can be used in conjunction with therapeutic allergy remedies or a professionally prescribed constitutional remedy.
The best way to deal with seasonal sniffles is to support your body naturally and without side effects using homeopathy.
