I am a happy person who lives life to the fullest-at every opportunity possible. I have been plagued with allergy issues most of my life. It started with daily headaches when smoking was allowed in the work place and seasonal bouts of laryngitis. That eventually changed to “flu” like symptoms monthly. My immunologist confirmed it was my allergies, not the flu bug. I have chronic sinus infections. Last year, I was diagnosed with IBS. Now I have food allergie! I also have lactose intolerance and limit my dairy intake but love cheese so I take Lactaze enzymes.
It is a daily battle for me to stay healthy and limiting allergy meds as much as possible. My ritual is neti pot, eucalyptus diffuser and himalyan salt sessions and inhaler. In spite of my attempts to stay healthy, I stick get sick, so I still have to use a nose spray AND allergy pill. I also have arthritis in 5 different areas of my body. Cold sore are also an issue after a particularly bad bout of allergy symptoms. I take lysine daily and this helps a lot. It is so frustrating to do what I can to alleviate my issue and still have problems.
I drink a blend of peppermint, fennel and ginger tea each morning and it helps alleviate the arthritis pain and stomach issues.
I decided to google an allergy support group and I am so happy to have found people who suffer as well. It is comforting to know that I am not alone.
I welcome any ideas and have already benefited from comments and replies.
