I began taking this supplement 18 months ago, as I headed into my first fall season after switching to a plant based diet. All my life I suffered with seasonal allergies. October and November were my worst months, with March and April following closely behind. My nose would clog up causing sinus pressure and headaches and then drainage, congestion built up in my lungs, and my eyes would become so itchy and irritated that I often couldn’t wear contact lenses. Many times I went into bronchitis as a result of the allergies. I was miserable.
As my body healed from viruses and toxic heavy metal buildup, and my immune system strengthened, chronic pain eased and many other health issues and symptoms cleared up. Would my lifetime battle with allergies rage on or come to an end?
As the time for allergy season approached, I listened to a radio show by Anthony William on seasonal allergies. He explained that a healthy body doesn’t react as strongly to allergens. But a body already under siege by viruses and poisoned by toxins can’t handle anything else. Allergens set off massive reactions in the body as it struggles to fight off these new invaders.
In the past I have taken Mucinex, allergy meds, sinus meds, used eye drops…and still felt miserable. With my body in a healthier state of being, I opted to follow Anthony’s recommendations for supporting my immune system: lots of water and herbal teas, Ester C supplement, a spoonful of raw honey locally produced and a spoonful of elderberry syrup, all taken daily.
For the first time in my life, I did not suffer from seasonal allergies that fall, nor have I experienced it since.
Elderberry is an effective way to boost and support the immune system. In addition, it fights against cold, flu and sinus congestion, eases and helps to prevent allergies, lowers blood sugar, is a natural diuretic and laxative, improves the skin, alleviates inflammation and nerve pain, and may help to prevent cancer.
Taken within the first 48 hours of cold or flu symptoms, elderberry can shorten the duration of symptoms. And taking this herb 10 days before air travel helps prevent catching respiratory illnesses en route.
Elderberry can be taken in many forms, including capsules, tinctures, juice, wine, syrup or tea. I take a tablespoon of elderberry syrup a day. It has a pleasant fruity taste. I want to try the tea. And I am very interested in learning to make my own syrup. I have a recipe saved, to try.
As we head into spring, I love knowing my body is healthy and ready to combat, with ease, any allergens nature wants to launch at me!
