I have horrible allergies! I didn’t know that moving to Texas would put me right in the middle of an allergen bowl. The Pollen Levels here are extreme! If you don’t have allergies and move to TX, you more and likely will get them. If you have allergies and live in TX, you better find a cure!
I am not a fan of going to doctors but for my allergies I must, or else I can’t function past the watery eyes, runny nose, constant sneezing and sinus headaches. My husband is a great researcher and he always tries to find ways to help me out. So when my allergies act up, he goes on the hunt. This past week he dug up some articles on how eating local honey may help your allergies. You can view the articles here:
Only local honey will work since your allergies are based on where you live. The less processed the honey is the better. The bees jump from plant to plant and get covered in pollen spores which then ends up in the honey that they make. Some people believe eating the honey daily works just like immunotherapy. The more you take it the more your body becomes immune to the pollen. Therefore, no more allergies.
The articles above pretty much state there is no proof that this works. So what, I gave it a try. I have been eating some local honey from Weatherford, TX with my morning greek yogurt for the last couple weeks. Results…sadly none.
So what do you think? Is this something you have tried? Did it work for you?
