Natural Relief for Allergies

Allergy season is here! If you haven't noticed, then you are NOT one of the 40 million people in the United States suffering from allergies.

OTC (over the counter) drugs may provide some temporary relief, but the long term harm is a steep price to pay. Believe it or not, all allergies begin with the health of our gut, and can be improved with nutrition.

I found one answer in a place I least expected. Aloe Vera plant is considered a miracle plant because of the multitude of curative and healing benefits. Aloe Vera leaves are filled with a gel containing vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, C and E, and folic acid, as well as a wide variety of minerals copper, iron, sodium, calcium, zinc, potassium, chromium, magnesium and manganese.

Aloe is safe to use externally and internally, and many around the globe use this plant for treating various health conditions, from minor burns to cancer. If Aloe can impact cancer, imagine what it can do to improve common allergy symptoms like:

  • fatigue and brain fog
  • lung and nasal issues
  • itchy eyes and throat
  • gas, bloating and skin flare-ups

and factors associated with allergies:

  • digestion, constipation and bowel health
  • reaction to pollen and other airborne allergens
  • antibiotics and prescription drug reliance

Aloe Provides Flavonoids and Aids Nutrient Absorption

Incredibly, the whole leaf Aloe Vera plant contains over 100 actives, including Yellow Sap which works quickly as a digestive bitter supporting stomach acid. Together with other essential properties, it improves vital core nutrient absorption, while easing occasional indigestion discomfort and revving up the body’s metabolism.

Aloe Vera has an acidic pH which helps to encourage the body to secrete the exact amounts of hydrochloric acid to improve digestion and absorption. Many allergy sufferers have weak digestion which does not allow the body to receive the nutritional benefits from foods and supplements.

Whole leaf aloe can help to provide relief from allergic responses by strengthen connective tissue called collagen. Weak collagen tissue in nasal passages, lung tissues, and intestinal tract cell walls allow foreign invaders to enter the blood stream and cause an allergy response.

By drinking whole leaf Aloe Vera juice daily, you are providing the body with needed flavonoids (plant phyto-nutrients,) and you may begin to reverse allergy sensitivity.

Once these flavonoids and other nutrients are absorbed at the cellular level, the body can support collagen and tissue structure development to screen out the allergies. The glycomannan complex, present in whole leaf aloe vera, helps to provide additional strengthening of tissue cell walls.

Natural anti-inflammatory and analgesics, found in the yellow sap, help to reduce swelling, pain and skin irritation. Campesterol, B-sitosterol, lupeol, and salicylic acid help to promote additional allergy relief.
