Experts say this has been the worst allergy season in a long time, unfortunately, their advice on how to fix allergies hasn’t been very helpful.
Most of the allergy advice we’re given falls into the category of old wives’ tales. Either that, or $50 pharmaceuticals (having allergies ain’t cheap!)
Not that there’s anything wrong with it, but I’ve heard “local honey!” 500 times from people, despite the fact that it hasn’t worked for me, and there’s no scientific evidence showing it does work.
However, I started suffering from incredibly bad allergies this spring – so bad that I’ve been waking up multiple times a night, my nose is always blocked, and I look like a zombie when I wake up.
So I decided to check out some allergy remedies – I tried honey, zyrtec, claritin, sudafed and half a dozen other chemical concoctions. Nothing worked.
In this video I’ll show you why maybe it’s time to retire your honey, as well as give you another natural, well-tested alternative for allergies that does work.
It’s also backed by a load of science.
Busting Allergy Myths and Finding Relief
Butterbur has been a miracle cure for me.
The particular one I use is called Petadolex Pro-Active, which you can find on amazon.
In the study, participants were given 100-150mg a day, which works out to about 2-3 softgels (the recommended dose on the bottle).
Try it out and let me know how your relief goes!
