Mullein:
  • The herb Mullein has been cultivated in Scotland and England for centuries as a medicinal herb. Historically it was used for respiratory issues like coughs,  lung conjestion, brochitis and nasal congestion.  
  • Mullein contains a good amount of potassium and calcium phosphate.
  • These two organic salts are essential for rebuilding tissue, nervous system function, bone structure and in maintaining general health and well-being. 
  • Mullein leaves and flowers are classified in traditional herbal literature as expectorants (promotes the discharge of mucus) and demulcents (soothes irritated mucous membranes). Historically, mullein has been used by herbalists as a remedy for the respiratory tract, particularly in cases of irritating coughs with bronchial congestion. 
  • Mullein is an excellent herb for the respiratory system, and has been known as an astringent, which opens air passages by shrinking irritated areas, allowing air to flow more freely through the respiratory system. 
  • Mullein is known by other names in other ancient cultures. The people of Rome and Ireland called it "lungwort" because they used it to cure lung disease in both humans and livestock (Muenscher, 1935; DeBray, 1978).
  • "Mullein contains approximately 3% mucilage and small amounts of saponins and tannins. The mucilaginous constituents are thought to be responsible for the soothing actions on mucous membranes. The saponins may be responsible for the expectorant actions of mullein." University of Michigan Medical Health Article
  • Mullein has a long history of traditional use for respiratory issues and is currently being studied for more information.
Elcampane:

  • Bayberry contains tannins that have a drying effect on skin and membranes.
  • On classifications for Bayberry is as an astringent.
  • Bayberry contains an active flavonoid called Myricetin. It is extracted from the barks, leaves, and roots of the plant known as myrica rubrae (Bayberry). It is very well known for the biologic effect of antioxidant and radical scavenge activities.
  • During the 19th century Samuel Thomson, a New England herbalist and father of 'physiomedicalism' described Bayberry as second only to red pepper for producing 'heat' within the body. Thomson recommended it for colds, flu, diarrhoea, fever and infectious disease and most particularly as an agent to increase the 'vital force', related to the body's intrinsic ability to heal itself.

 
Euphrasia Offinalis (Eyebright):

  • Eyebright is a plant. The parts that grow above the ground have been used traditionally to make medicine. 
    Some of the traditional uses are as follows:
    • Eyebright is taken by mouth to treat swollen (inflamed) nasal passages, allergies, hay fever, common cold, bronchial conditions, and inflamed sinuses (sinusitis). It is also used for coughs, “pink eye” (conjunctivitis), earaches, epilepsy, headaches, hoarseness, inflammation, jaundice, runny nose, skin ailments, and sore throat. (THERE ARE NO STUDIES THAT PROVE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF EYEBRIGHT FOR THE ABOVE CONDITIONS)
    • Euphrasia officinalis (Eyebright) is traditionally used for eye inflammation.
      • So many allergies are related to eye irritation that one of the ways that herbalists have used Eyebright is to deal with eye irritation that comes with a seasonal allergy.
    • Eyebright has been tested for efficacy on corneal cells in human eyes. The results/ conclusion below are quoted from this study (Euphrasia Officanlis Study):
      • "All tested extracts decreased pro-inflammatory cytokine expression (IL-1β, IL-6 and TNF-α) and also anti-inflammatory IL-10 expression by human corneal cells."

Here are some of the ways to treat allergies:

  • Antihistamines:
    • Antihistamines can help to treat most minor allergic reactions regardless of the cause.
      • These drugs reduce the body's production of histamine. Histamines are chemicals created by your body that react when the body is threatened by an allergen or irritant. As an example when pollen is inhaled the release of histamine causes moucus to be produced in the sinus cavities. The extra moucus is then blown or sneezed out. The moucus carries the pollen with it and clears the sinus cavities of that particular allergen. 
    • Antihistamines slow the production of histamines and thereby reduce allery symptoms like sneezing, watering eyes, and skin reactions. Second-generation antihistamines, including Claritin (loratadine) and Zyrtec (cetirizine), are less likely to cause drowsiness than first-generation antihistamines, such as Benadryl.
    • Antihistamines come in several forms like oral pills, dissolvable tablets, nasal sprays or eye drops. This is usually to help deliver the medication closer to the source of the allergic reaction
    • Antihistamines in these forms are available from pharmacies, to buy online, or as a prescription from a doctor.
    • Antihistamines can also be taken to prevent allergies. Many people with seasonal or pet allergies will begin taking antihistamines when they know they are going to be exposed to a seasonal allergen. 
  • Decongestants
    • Decongestants help relieve the stuffy, blocked-nose symptoms of nasal congestion. Short-term use of decongestants usually provides good symptom relief and can make you feel better quickly. But some decongestants can increase your heart rate and blood pressure and keep you awake at night. These medications can worsen prostate problems and glaucoma. If you have existing health problems—particularly a heart condition—be sure to get your doctor's advice before taking a decongestant. Regular use of decongestant nasal sprays can cause irreparable damage to the lining of the nose, so be sure to follow the directions exactly. Don't use these too often, or for many days at a time.
  • Allergy shots
    • Allergy shots can help reduce sensitivity to the triggers that set off your allergies. This therapy involves injecting small and increasing amounts of allergens (substances that cause allergic reactions) over regular intervals. Typically, this means weekly injections with increasing doses for three to six months and then monthly injections for three to five years.
    • The allergy shot treatment can be very effective for seasonal allergies that cause sneezing, nasal congestion, and itchy and swollen eyes. Allergy shots are almost always recommended for life-threatening allergies to stinging insects, and may help in the treatment of allergic asthma. Right now, allergy shots are not used to treat food allergies. The biggest drawback to this treatment is the risk of a potentially serious allergic reaction from the shot itself. Improvements in allergy extracts and dosing schedules have reduced this risk to what researchers estimate is about 1% of all allergy shots.
  • Traditional or historical allergy treatments:
    • Take a tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar. Apple cider vinegar is an amazing natural allergy remedy. Traditionally it is said to help reduce mucous production and cleanse your lymphatic system. The quick but somewhat hard approach is to belly up to the bar and just swallow a tablespoon of it. For a more palatable option, try adding a tablespoon to a cup of hot water with a small bit of honey.
    • Try consuming some LOCAL Honey. Grass and pollen in the area are what cause allergic reactions. You can help your body learn that the local habitat isn’t deadly by giving your body small doses of the grass and pollen that are irritating it (similar to the principal of getting a flu shot). This is where local honey comes in so handy. Bees create their honey from the plants in the surrounding area. Thus, their honey contains trace amounts of the very pollen that you are allergicly reacting to.
    • A nasal spray is an alternative. By spritzing saline solution in your nose once a day, you can help flush those same harmful irritants from your nasal passage.
    • There are also many alternative treatments that involve boosting the immune system. This type of treatment might not give the immediate results that an antihistamine or a decongestant might offer but over the long haul this is a very effective long term solution.

Spring Is The Best - Worst Time Of The Year!

People like to celebrate the spring by going outside and enjoying the sunshine and warmer temperatures. In fact it seems as though everything comes alive this time of year.
