In the past I’ve mocked some of the tabloids’ WEATHER WARNINGS.
You know the sort…
Killer snow warning!
Hottest summer on record!
Biblical Flood on the Way!
But this is one weather warning you should take note of…
Certainly I do, because my wife suffers from bad hay fever, as do millions like her, and it’s these people who are going to be hit by…
I know, I know, that sounds weird.
Nothing ‘mild’ can be a problem, can it?
Well yes, if you have problems with your respiratory system. Thanks to a very mild spring, there is going to be an early spike in the pollen count this year.
Yep, hay fever season is coming, and it’s coming early.
This spells certain chaos at mine – both my eldest child and wife will be sneezing, complaining, bleary-eyed and wheezy of chest.
With her chronic asthma it’s a worrying time for Mrs Sampson in particular.
However, as I recommended to her last year, she is now the proud owner of one of these amazing natural devices, and I highly recommend you get one the same.
The tree that could cause a problem
The main culprit behind this week’s soaring pollen count is the birch, which is the first in the line of trees all waiting to fill the air with irritating clouds of pollen.
Birch pollen is one of the most irritating for hay fever suffers, affecting 25% of people with the condition.
Of course, nature is wonderful and I have no problem with trees.
But you’re going to see a peak in hay fever this month as the trees go crazy, followed by the grass season’s peak in May.
This means it’s double trouble.
My recommendation is that you try to avoid reaching immediately for over the counter drugs and drowsy medicines. They can work for some people but they mask the root causes and have side effects.
Instead I recommend that you breathe for 15 minutes a day through a salt pipe like this one.
You can use it to:
• naturally minimise the effects of hay fever
• reduce wheeziness and shortness of breath
• keep your air passages clean and pollution-free
• control chronic coughs and asthma
• reduce snoring and get a better night’s sleep
• clear out your sinuses
The pipe contains salt from Eastern Europe mines that have has long been used as therapy for people with respiratory problems such as asthma, hay fever, snoring and congested sinus.
This phenomenon was first discovered in 1843, when a Polish health official noticed that salt miners had unusually healthy lungs and few of the respiratory disease that plagued regular miners.
Since then, people have flocked to salt mines in Poland, Austria and Romania for help with asthma, hay fever, bronchitis, snoring and chronic coughs.
But the easiest way to experience the benefits is through a small, light, refillable pipe.
How the Salt pipe works
As you breathe in, the air absorbs the from tiny miocene salt crystal, composed of sodium chloride, magnesium, and calcium.
About 15 minutes per day is all you need to clean your air passages and reduce hay fever symptoms.
There are no side-effects and it’s completely safe to use alongside medications and other therapies.
This is a great time to try this out and see if it works for you, as hay fever season is upon us, meaning you can really test this out properly.
As reported in the weather-obsessed Daily Mirror, Dr Khaled Sadek, a GP at The Smart Clinics has advised people with hay fever to start dealing with it now, at the beginning of the season.
“Treatments work better if they are taken before symptoms start,” he said.
So give it a go and let us know how you get on!
What not to eat if you suffer this allergy…
Also try to cut down on alcohol which can make symptoms worse and increase your sensitivity to pollen.
And if you do suffer from birch pollen insensitivity, try and avoid these foods for a few weeks:
Apples, cherries, plums, peaches, kiwis, celery, hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts, peanuts and soya beans
About half of birch pollen allergy sufferers get reactions from these foods at this time of year. Nothing major, just swollen lips and tongue.
Other than that, arm yourself with a Salt Pipe and stay strong!
Until next time, be healthy (and wheeze-free)
