Vitamins Battle Cedar Fever!

Working with clients that suffer from cedar,its time to battle back...Try using natural products that will help strengthen the body immune system. Provide by

-natural antihistamines that are quite effective.

1st) Increase your dietary intake of omega 3 oils. Omega 3 oils have the effect of calming our immune system so that we don't respond to pollens so actively. Cold-water fish such as salmon, tuna, haddock, and sardines are great sources. I also recommend a tablespoon of fish oil as a supplemental source of omega 3 oils.

2nd)quercetin, a compound found in apples, onions and garlic. I have found that 350 mg, three times a day, is quite effective.

3rd)Supplements that work well with quercetin are tumeric, bromelain, and boswellia. I recommend a product called BCQ, which has all four of these ingredients. Reducing allergies with BCQ has been one of my nutritional success stories.

Understand that nutrients do not act like drugs. They work best when taken over a long time. So give them a running start in preparation of cedar fever time.
