Allergy Blues

Most people find the world most fair;
They eat the food; they breathe the air.
But air and food are now my foes,
Giving me a bright red nose.
My hives break out with berries near;
Of wheat and milk I have great fear.
The smell of fish gives me the “tizzy.”
The taste of fish can make me dizzy.
My eyes scratch out the ragweed blues;
The pollen count is all bad news.
From paper dust I start to weep;
I wear a mask whenever I sweep.
The molds and spores abound galore-
I cannot stand them anymore.
From trees and grass, at any cost,
I stay aloof and pray for frost;
But frost won’t cure me altogether -
I still must cope with change of weather.
The labs at last have all my blood;
A wound would scarcely cause a flood.
So ends this tale of all my woes
As histamine clogs up my nose.
Leah Funck

Things to remember:

  1. Tree pollen allergy season starts the 1st of March and goes through May.
  2. Grass pollen allergy season is during the entire months of May & June.
  3. Mold is always in the air except when it snows. Warm, humid weather is particularly bad and hot, humid summer nights also increase the mold spore count and allergy symptoms.
  4. Ragweed allergy season starts in late August and is present until the first frost.

Some things to keep in mind:

  1. Keep your windows closed and use your air conditioning during the allergy seasons.
  2. Allergy medications, such as antihistamines, Singulair, nasal steroid sprays, and antihistamine nasal sprays are helpful when allergy symptoms are severe.
  3. Remember that allergy drugs can be started and stopped, and are better when only used for severe symptoms. The basic treatment for allergies to things in the air is desensitization (allergy shots).
  4. Keep your windows closed at night.
  5. Everyone should take extra vitamin C (at least 2,000 mg. a day) and vitamin D (at least 3,000 units a day).
  6. Remember to wear a mask when you are being exposed to allergens like dust, dirt, chemicals, and pollen, present when cleaning, mowing the lawn, or doing yard work.
  7. NasalCrom can be bought as a nasal spray over-the-counter and should be used in anticipation of being in an environment that will aggravate allergies.
  8. In heavy pollen seasons, take your allergy shots more frequently.
  9. Remember, food allergies can make the airborne allergies worse, so try to stay on your diet during pollen seasons.
  10. Remember not to do any yard work or outdoor activities after your lawn has been fertilized or sprayed.
  11. Daily nasal irrigations can be helpful in ridding your nasal passages of pollen and other allergy causing irritants.
  12. When traveling in an automobile, keep the windows rolled up if possible.

Refined Foods are Bad, But These May Be Far Worse

Genetically modified crops are the result of a technology developed in the 1970s that allow genes from one species to be forced into the DNA of an unrelated species.

The process of creating the GM crop can produce all sorts of side effects, and the plants contain proteins that have never before been in the food supply. In the US... See the complete article on
