Fall and Allergies

These few days it has seemed like fall-well ok a humid fall.  It has rained everyday since Friday.  Still temps in the 80’s I am not complaining.  September is one of our wettest months. (All those hurricanes, I guess)  We went to an open house at R’s therapist on Sat.  Yes, my kid has a therapist she sits on the couch and talks about her life.  (jk). A occupational therapist. Then that evening we went out to eat.

When leaving the restaurant I saw an old friend and her family.  This friend was my maid of honor in our wedding years ago.  Then we had a huge fight and did not talk for years.  When we moved here, I knew that her and her family lived her.  So I found her number and called her.  We talk occasionally and are fb friends.  We have not see each other in years.  I told her this weekend, we should get the kids together for a playdate.  I do want to see her and meet her kids.  I regret the stupid fight we had years ago and want to be better friends again.  She is a great person.  At least, I am trying.

We have all had problems with allergies and but so far they have been minor.  R’s have  been the worst and really I don’t want to have to give her stuff.  I assume R has seasonal allergies, we don’t know she was only tested for food/drug allergies.  I am allergic to like everything (literally).  I also have mild asthma.  We take a great deal of homeopathic med.  Aloe vera juice works great drinking it everyday, we mix it with lemonade for a better taste! Aloe vera is great though, for many ailments.  We all do vitamins, a b vitamin, I take garlic, and there is an immunity booster vitamin that I am seriously considering.  Nature Plus makes the immunity vitamins. Homeopathic meds really work-the cost might be slightly more but not having to go to the dr is so worth it.  R is using a Xylitol nasal spray which is also great.  Saline also works good on noses.  That is what works for us!

  3. Our allergies are killing us here too (Oklahoma). Ragweed has been crazy and I suspect that the mold spores are kicking up too! I’m a firm believer in homeopathic medicine and supplements though I some times go a bit overboard! I was spending way too much money on herbals and health store vitamins and had to cut back. But I have taken echincea and found it to be helpful during the allergy and cold season.
