Hay Fever and Allergies

By: Caroline Sutherland

Do you suffer from hay fever and allergies? Are they worse in the spring and fall?


There is an important link between airborne allergies, the season of the year and the location where you live.

My background as an allergy-testing technician in the Pacific Northwest revealed important clues about allergies to airborne inhalants and molds!

During certain times of the year depending on the amount of rain, dampness and mold abounds.

People can be severely affected by molds – Alternaria, Aspergillis, Hormodendrum, and Pullularia - common molds found in soil and decaying vegetation. Stachy Botris is a nasty mold that grows in damp wallboard or moist carpeting. Molds abound in the air we breathe all over the Pacific Northwest, Texas, Florida, Eastern Canada and many other areas around the world. Sometimes there is relief in summer when the weather is dry and the mold count is low.

Do you best to dry out your home and make it allergy free.

Don’t spend time in moldy, damp basements.

Next, take a look at your bedroom. Are their feathers on the bed? Are there pets in the bedroom? What about dust? And of course, if there are plants in the bedroom molds called Cryptococcus or Fusarium can be emitted into the air that you breathe at night.

Next build up your immune system with correct nutrition and supplementation so that you are not as acutely affected by outside influences. Do a Candida yeast eradication program. Candida is a yeast that can live in the respiratory tract. Also, try removing all dairy products from the diet – dairy products are mucous forming and make breathing much worse.

Then go within and take a look at some of the emotional components that are affecting nasal passages and the respiratory tract. Close your eyes and imagine you are an energy power center. Visualize where your own power is leaking out to people, places or things outside of your self. You may have an “investment” in another person or in a past issue that continues to rob you of vital energy. Now, breathe the “life force” back into your body and regain the power that you have lost.

Building self-esteem is the key to retaining your own valuable energy. Finding joy and happiness in everything you do are the ultimate goals to keeping you healthy and strong and unaffected by outside influences.
