IT'S ALLERGY SEASON (ACHOOO!)

IT HAPPENS EVERY SPRING

Unless you live inside of an air-filtered environmentally
sterile plastic bubble, you'll soon be breathing air filled
with tree pollens and grass pollens.

For me, the simple sound of a lawn mower breaking the
silence of a Sunday morning once set me to sneezing.

Like swallows returning to Capistrano, my annual 6 week
season of wheezing and sniffles would begin on the ides of
April and last until June 1st.

THE CURE

After discontinuing ALL milk and dairy products, the
allergies were gone. There would be an occasional tickle in
the nose, and when pollen counts are high there is an
occasional sneeze, but wonder of wonders, I now sleep
through the night without medication.

No longer do I need Actifed-C with codeine. No more
antihistamines. No more nose spray.

Milk and cheese. They made the difference.

If only my allergist had told me about this publication
nearly twenty years ago:

"Dairy products may play a major role in the development of
allergies, asthma, sleep difficulties, and migraine
headaches."

Israel Journal of Medical Sciences 1983; 19(9):806-809

Seven years ago, I read a revealing article in the Townsend
Medical Letter. I remember the moment well. That was the
last time I ate ice cream:

"In reality, cow's milk, especially processed cow's milk,
has been linked to a variety of health problems, including:
mucous production...and allergies."

Townsend Medical Letter, May, 1995, Julie Klotter, MD

I paid thousands of dollars to various allergists, receiving
treatment that did not work. Why did not any of them tell me
the following:

"At least 50% of all children in the United States are
allergic to cow's milk, many undiagnosed. Dairy products are
the leading cause of food allergy...Many cases of asthma and
sinus infections are reported to be relieved and even
eliminated by cutting out dairy."

Natural Health, July, 1994, Nathaniel Mead, MD

There is a simple cure. Enjoy a dairy-free, allergy-free
spring!
