Allergy Season, Celiac disease and Gluten sensitivity

Today, I was asked a question about seasonal allergies and how to treat them with Celiac Disease and Gluten sensitivity. You know, those watery eyes, coughing, sneezing, congestion, in some severe allergies even breathing problems.  Well there is a supplement I have used for years that has always helped me.  It’s called Quercetin. While there are many gluten free choices,  I order it from a company called “Now”.  They are Gluten free and the Quercetin that I use from that company also has Bromelain added to it. The Bromelain acts as an anti-inflammatory while the Quercetin is a natural anti-histamine with no side-effects.  When you begin taking it, start with 500 milligrams 2 times a day. Give it time, because it can take a while to get into your system and work. Take it throughout the season so it keeps working. If 500 milligrams doesn’t seem like enough, you can increase 500 milligrams at a time until you get relief. You can increase safely up to about 3,000 milligrams a day for asthma relief.  This was told to me by a natural physician.  So if you have allergies, and want to try something healthier to help give it a try, I hope it brings relief.  I also recommend you avoid dairy as a lot of Celiac’s have a lactose intolerance and dairy can be very mucus forming. It’s been my experience that it makes breathing problems and asthma worse. Feel well, and thanks for stopping by    All my best  Iris
