Carolina Foothills, SC: Market Info
I have gotten some requests to add the market site ID so here you go,
Savannah, GA: market Ppen
While working on the farm this past weekend I realized that fall pollen season was once again about to unload its dusty venom. During my inspection in my bee hives I noticed an incredible amount of new pollen that the bees were bringing in to the hive. The colors were a bright yellow and a fluorescent orange. Wow!
Ten years ago I had extreme allergies and nothing worked against the yellow snow. So I started reading and found out that in some studies honey and bee pollen arrested some symptoms. My suffering was intense and miserable and if all the medications didn’t work the allergy ended up moving into my throat then my lungs and I would be sick for weeks. Then I read a few articles on quercetin , a natural pollen blocker and antihistamine and also found out it does far more than just that. Boy was this a life changer.
I am very pro active twice a year. First in the spring and then in the fall about a month before the pollen season sets in I start my regime of honey, bee pollen and quercetin. I have not had to take any shots or any medication since I started this ten years ago.
So get ready if you suffer, the pollen season is here again. There are 50-200 different varieties of these pollen producing perennials that are the main culprit for causing allergic reactions.
This time of year is a little different than in the spring. In September and August it is mainly shrubs, herbs and wildflowers, such as:
All types of Ragweeds; Rosinweed, Red Root Pigweed, Tumbleweed, Amaranth, Milkweed, Germander, Busch Clover, and Goldenrod .
And of course some molds.
Be your own Dr. use natural organic substances; they work.
