This last few weeks my allergies have been acting up. They crept up on me so slowly I didn’t really notice. Until I was sleeping away my weekend feeling like I had the flu and my mom forced me to take measures.
I looked up allergies on the web the closest I could come to what I get was seasonal allergies like hay fever. But the symptoms listed on the web: congestion, runny nose, itchy eyes snot and stuffiness, do not cover the other symptoms I experience I associate with my allergies. I have congestion and burning eyes but my main symptoms are exhaustion, headaches, body-ache, brain fog, and a general sense of malaise. Actually the way that I usually realize what I’m experiencing is allergies and not regular exhaustion is that my exhaustion comes with a feeling of doom, gloom and depression out of proportion with whats going on with my life. At that point I take a gram of Vitamin C and if within 15 minutes the fog lifts that confirms that its really allergies. I’ll admit though I don’t always have the sense to realize that what I need is not a nap but a vitamin pill. It sort of bothers me that none of the medical websites mention these symptoms. Perhaps I have super allergies or something.
I can’t take over the counter stuff to medicate though so I I stick with ‘natural’ stuff like herbs and supplements what works for me is:
Alpha Lipoc Acid
