Are Allergies and Stings Bothering You?

with one comment

Allergies are essentially an attack on the immune system. Modern medicine has proven ineffective at treating it as with most illnesses because it is based on drugs and machines. Not to mention they provide “treatments” that are not attainable due to cost. They do not address the root cause of what causes allergies in the first place. As a rule of thumb, stay away from anything that is FDA-approved. They are political hacks for the drug companies, not scientists or doctors.

Some natural supplements that help are Vitamin A, B12 and Omega-3 Fatty Acids. Another reason people have so much trouble with allergies is likely due to a deficiency in magnesium (found in spinach and pinto beans) or zinc (such as chicken or turkey).

You can try any of these or a combination for treating allergies:

fruit juices, except citrus

brown rice


White fish: halibut, sole, swordfish; salmon is rich in Omega-3 (no shellfish)

almonds, walnuts or sunflower seeds

fresh garlic


cayenne pepper


local honey

colon and liver detox supplements


drink lots of water

If you really have it in bad for allergies, for maximum effectiveness, it is best to start on a program of taking or eating several of these on a regular basis by no later than mid-winter (early to mid February) so you can have time to build up your immunity.

How To Treat Ant Bites, Bee Stings and Burns

The first thing to do especially if you are allergic is to see a doctor.

When you get the chance, stop by and pick up some organic raw honey, preferably local honey which can be found at farmer’s markets or food co-ops. Honey has natural antioxidant and anti-microbial properties that help to protect the skin from the damage of the sun’s rays, supports the skin’s ability to rejuvenate and refresh depleted skin, leaving it feeling silky soft and supple. One of the most common skin benefits of honey is related to minor acne treatment.

Also get some yogurt. It adds enzymes and oils to the skin, working as a natural moisturizer. It can also reduce pore size, improve overall skin texture, and give you that healthy glow. You determine how much honey and yogurt you would need. I would suggest in the neighborhood of a 2-3 pounds of each to start off with.

First of all, rinse off completely before applying. You don’t want dirt, body oil or what not getting caught up in the honey and yogurt. It would be a nightmare otherwise.

Using your hands, slather the honey on the body part(s) where you were bitten.
Rest for about an hour. Don’t overdo it. A thin layer is good.

The yogurt is applied on top of the honey. Make sure the yogurt is of a creamy consistency; freeze in a bowl for about 20-30 minutes. Slather the yogurt on the affected area for another 30 minutes to an hour. Think of it like applying sunscreen or lotion. Don’t worry about it feeling cold. That is what helps relieve the itching. Then take a warm shower and completely dry off afterwards.

This should help. It did wonders the few times I was bitten by ants as a kid. Being a Boy or Girl Scout teaches you a thing or two about nature.
