Nasal Allergy - A Chinese Herbal Prescription
To make the prescription effective, you have to use the right approach. Conventional wisdom involves identifying a list of irritants such as pollens, dust, even your pets that you are allergic to. This is an endless process because you can always find new things you are allergic to if you start digging further.
The right approach should be to make your respiratory system robust enough so that you won't be irritated by all the environmental disturbances such as pollens, dust, seasonal changes, pets' hair, etc. If you don't believe in this approach, just look at other family members or your neighbors. They all live in the same environment as you. Not all of them have your allergies. Why? Is it because the pollens dislike you? The root cause is your own internal weakness, especially your respiratory system, which cannot tolerate the pollen disturbance. If you can turn your system not a robust one, you don't need to worry so much about environmental irritants. It's just like good health will always lead to less illness.
An effective herbal prescription should strengthen your respiratory system, and reduce your allergy symptoms at the same time.
1) To strengthen your respiratory system, use:
2) To reduce your allergy symptoms such as cough, dry throat, mucus, nasal congestion, headache, even some swelling, use:
Zhe Bei Mu
Zi Su Ye
A combination of 12 herbs mentioned above will do.
Drink one to two cups (8 oz each) of herb tea a day.
After taking the herbs, your allergy may still flare up sometimes, but the frequency and the intensity will be reduced until becoming insignificant.
Since the allergy prescription strengthens your respiratory system, the best time to take it is before the allergy season to allow time for the strengthening effect to work.
This is just one formula with countless variations depending on:
* Severity and nature of the allergy based on observation and discussion of the problem with the herbalist.
* How weak are your lungs and respiratory system based on pulse reading and judgment of the herbalist.
