Hi Dr. Hull. I have a weird question, but it’s affecting my daughter, and with all the COVID panic and mask mandates today, I wonder if we are forgetting that people still catch colds and have allergies without it being “the bug.”
Her school is freaking out because she has allergies – just seasonal allergies that she has every year. It seems any health issue today hits the COVID panic button, and I don’t want her to become a hypochondriac.
How would you handle an “old-fashioned” pollen allergy in a 14 year old girl?
She hasn’t been vaccinated for COVID, and I do not intend on getting her vaccinated.
Wow, you have hit the nail on the head – everything these days is blamed on COVID, and we ARE teaching our kids to be hypochondriacs.
Let’s address her allergies without panic …
Pollen allergies are live proteins that are not being “digested” by her body. ( And, yes, digestion even takes place within your nasal cavities.) Hence, the proteins stay alive, they irritate the nasal passages, and eventually get sucked into the sinuses and your eyes.
What you do is “digest” those live proteins with a digestive enzyme.
I’d improve her digestion of these proteins by supplementing with a digestive enzyme at least once a day. Wobenzym-N is the best whole body enzyme (systemic enzyme) used in many health therapies (including cancer treatments) in Germany and Russia. It is available on the web, and in high-end health markets.
Because this supplement is used in cancer treatments, the FDA made the company change its packaging to not reflect this fact, so it is now marketed as a joint and bone health supplement, which it does assist with. Wobenzym-N helps escort the nutrients into the bone tissue while removing any toxins blocking the absorption.
Then, have her take a pretend dunk in the ocean, which she is not going to like, but she needs to get saltwater in her nose and eyes. The sodium will disarm and remove the proteins in her sinus cavity.
Have her use a Neti Pot or do a saline nasal flush until all the allergies are gone. This really works and is the best, natural way to rid the body of protein allergens in the sinuses. Avoid the OTC meds that will dry her body out and create drug dependancies. She can snuff salt water up her nose as often as she needs to, daily.
I hope this helps, and I hope you can keep the school from creating panic in your young daughter over something as common as an allergy.
