Hi guys, I am fairly new to most alternative health remedies that I have read here but I am learning. I have been reading many, many threads here. I am feeling very encouraged about natural healing and helping my family be healthier but I feel so very overwhelmed and don’t know where or how to start. I would be very grateful for any advice on helping my husband to heal. Even if not "cured" but being healthier in general would be great.
He has hay fever and allergic asthma that he has managed with pulmicort and ventilin (when needed) He has rstarted developing new symptoms of oral allergy syndrome which prompted a visit to an allergy specialist recently who performed a tonne blood tests including anti-thyriod peroxidise antibodies, IgE tissue transglutaminase antibodies, H. Pylori titer. (all came back within normal range) SC Results were: birch trees 2+, cats 4+, dogs 2+, horse 4+, dust mite farainae 3+, dust mite pteronyssinus 2+, histamine control 2+
She prescribed Nasonex nose spray an d patanol eye drops. Told him to take 1-2 reactine daily as needed and said he may also require oral prednisone if swelling is not improved with antihistamines. He hasen't filled his prescriptions yet..
He flushes his nose out with a homemade saline sinus recipe (canning salt and baking soda as a buffer) when he is feeling sneezy and congested and says it really helps. He has also started a inhale salt pipe which is amazing. He is also taking vit B 12 and vit B 6 and omega 3 fish oil. What else might benefit him? I have read that nettles and eyebright are great for allergies and respiratory health. Could his hayfever/asthma be symptom of leaky gut even without food allergies? And if so, where to start the healing for that? I’ve read that he needs to colon cleanse or do “die off” before starting probiotics somewhere and elsewhere I read that isen’t necessary..feeling lost here...also, which probiotics would be a good place to start? He eats pretty well for the most part though there is definitely room for improvement. We live on a small working farm and raise our own free range chickens for meat and eggs, eat free range beef and have a large garden every year that we eat fresh in summer and eat frozen for much of the winter, supplementing with store bought lettuce, cucumber, etc. He doesn’t drink soda or have much of a sweet tooth but he does enjoy the occasional beer or red wine (2-3xs week)
My husband, 31, non smoker, slightly overweight. No fillings, nor has ever had any cavities. No rashes or skin troubles. Was vaccinated as a child and from what I understand a “sickly” child and on antibiotics quite often. His mother has/had serious health problems including hayfever and asthma (more severe then my husbands) also colon cancer, cervical dystonia and dental issues.
Thank you for reading. I really am looking forward to any advise from anyone.
