I have had wonderful success from a product I bought at GNC vitamin store. It's a homeopathic ...GNC brand that says sinus/allergy. Nothing by mouth 1/2 hr. before and after. Except water. I crush it by chewing, then put it under my tounge till dissolved, and repeat every 1/2 hr. till symtoms disapear. They did by the 3rd one, I was just ready to take my 4th and notice all symtoms were gone. Definately worth a try. At the first sign of symtoms now I only need 1 or 2.
Ohio ...I was so happy to see that you found relief, sorry I have not stopped in to check this post out in quite awhile. It does work good doesn't it!!! This time of year I really need those. As soon as I feel the start of allergies, I take one and sometimes I have to take one more, but the pain goes away!!
I wanted to add that I'm waiting for something to come in the mail that is also homeopathic. I'm hoping to get some help with an underlying yeast problem, I've been diagnosed with this. Right now I'm battling with gerd symtoms too. I have to drink lots of water and stay away from caffine of any kind. I take some Naturm Phosphorica for the heartburn, which helps me burp.
I've had thyroid problems, on thyroid meds, this is why I don't take the over the counter allergie meds. I also have IBS, the constipating kind, not the loose bowel kind, when I couldn't empty my colon on a regular basis it gave me bladder spasms too. I found a really good fiber powder and for elimination, I drink a tea nightly. I used to use smooth move tea, now I order it from the same place as the powder I take.
I drink 8 glasses of water daily,(I had to work up to that much water slowly, I increase my water by one cup a week) make sure your eliminating as much water as you take in before increasing. It took awhile to adjust. I had fatigue for about the first 6months, but I knew I was doing the right thing and I did get better. It sounds like we have similar problems. There is a homeopathic you could try, first what kind of IBS do you have, constipation kind or loose stool. Write back.
For months I was in a "fog." Doctors prescribed numerous medications and most of them made my brain fog worse. I went to the local health store and bought an allergy homeopathic remedy and just as you mentioned within three tablets my brain fog went away. This is wonderful! My nose is still a little stuffed up but I can
live with that.
Keep moving, it makes it harder for the undertaker to catch you. Don
I tried to give you some information and got in trouble, so all I can do is just tell you to look at a health foods place and try to find some tea to help the constipation, it is available. I found out from a bladder specialist that you need to try and empty your bladder ever 1 1/2 to 2hrs. I know if I wait too long I get bladder pains that take a while to go away. We seem to have similar problems. I do know if I can keep my colon clean and moving(with the help of the tea), it has helped my bladder to release properly. Before taking the tea though. Try Magnesium citrate tablets, at least 400mg. a day, a little more might be ok if you don't get diareah from it. It help with muscle spasms and nerves and it also a natural laxitive. Hope that helps.
