What happened to the winter? Spring has started early and with an early bloom comes a long year for seasonal allergy sufferers. If you are one of the millions suffering from springtime allergies already in March, wouldn’t you like to enjoy the summer allergy-free? A simple solution exists that can help you rid the meds and enjoy the outdoors.
There’s no doubt that our country is over-medicated, not to mention broke from paying for expensive medications. On top of this, terrible side effects with allergy medications make them a gamble to take. The side effects of a popular prescription allergy drug includes: fatigue, coughing, sneezing, headache, nausea, sleeplessness, sore throat, dizziness and even severe allergic reactions! Wait, isn’t the medication supposed to prevent allergies and all of these symptoms? What if you could take something safe and natural with no side effects that you don’t need a prescription for and costs well under $20?

“Cold are easy to prevent and cure. Pump up your immune system and watch your colds virtually disappear.” –KTRN
Winter cold and flu viruses can cause annoying, debilitating, or even dangerous symptoms. Fortunately, there are ways to head off colds and prevent complications.
If you think you may have been exposed to a virus, for example someone sneezes on you, one of your kids has a cold, or you shake hands with someone who is coughing, you can use xylitol nasal spray (Xlear) to ward off the cold. Xylitol inhibits the reproduction of viruses and bacteria.
The initial symptoms of a viral illness may include runny nose, sneezing, sore throat, foggy thinking, tiredness, aching muscles, headache, and fever with chills. As soon as you get any of these symptoms start taking vitamin C and elderberry extract (Sambucus nigra). Elderberry is available in liquid extracts and syrups that children can take, or as tablets or capsules, often combined with Echinacea. Elderberry is an antiviral herb that has been proven to reduce the symptoms of colds and flus, and Echinacea stimulates white blood cell production to encourage the body’s fight against infection.
The easiest form of vitamin C for children to take is Emergen-C flavored, powder packets, which also contain vitamin A, zinc, and elderberry. Avoid using chewable vitamin C, which can eat away tooth enamel. Colloidal silver or a liquid silver in water preparation (Silvercillin by Designs for Health) will provide additional antiviral support.

High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is used as a sweetener in thousands of mainstream packaged foods sold in the United States and around the world, from bread to soda and even breakfast cereal. It has been blamed for increasing the number of empty calories in the U.S. diet, and researchers have linked it to type-2 diabetes and obesity.
Beyond the link to detrimental health effects, another danger from this ubiquitous ingredient comes from the toxic chemicals that are used to turn corn into corn starch and then finally into HFCS. One of these chemicals,glutaraldehyde, is a toxic chemical used in industrial water treatment systems and to sterilize medical equipment by killing living cells. It’s also a well-known embalming chemical. It is toxic to the human body and causes eye, nose, throat and lung irritation (asthma, sneezing, wheezing, burning eyes, etc.). It can also cause drowsiness, dizziness and headaches.
The chemical is so toxic that it can actually burn a hole in your stomach.
It’s that time of the year again; brutal winter storms are hitting the nation like a ton of bricks, everyone around us is coughing and sneezing, and we’re all worn out from the madness of the holiday season. So, how does one stay healthy whilst being smacked with all of these factors at once?
Vitamin C should be a vital part of your daily supplementation. I get my vitamin C from 321supplements.com. They are a supplement company that I trust and use regularly.
Even further, there’s a possibility that you may have scurvy if you have a severe case of vitamin C deficiency. Some symptoms of scurvy are: exhaustion, lethargy, pale complexion, anemia, depression, sunken eyes, and weakness. If you feel like those symptoms describe how you feel, you must take action now!

More than 300 people have been diagnosed with the mumps in suburban New York as the nation’s largest outbreak of the disease in years continues to spread.
A health official says a total of 303 people in the Rockland County towns of Monsey and New Square have been diagnosed with the highly infectious disease. Almost all the cases are among Orthodox or Hasidic Jews.
Investigators say the outbreak started in August 2009 at a Jewish summer camp in Sullivan County with an 11-year-old boy who brought the disease from England.
It has since spread to Jewish communities in Brooklyn, New Jersey and Orange county.
Mumps spreads through saliva, coughing and sneezing. Common symptoms are flu-like and include swelling of the salivary glands.
