Treat Seasonal Allergies
I began becoming interested in natural health a very long time ago. (and was thrilled to know how to treat seasonal allergies!) I would visit my aunt in Connecticut in the summertime. She was a total health nut and extremely bright! She introduced me to foods that I had never had before. I liked that she knew how to turn tortellini salad with lots of colors and health benefits into something that a kid would enjoy. I mean, it was pasta, how can you not want it.
She would also put me on supplements. (Lots of them) I think she was trying to make up for my diet a peanut butter and jelly, pizza, lots, and lots of potato chips. At that age, though, I was pretty healthy. Back in the 70s and 80s, kids went outside to play all day long in the summer. We got lots of fresh air and road bikes. I think my physical activity made up for my less than a proper diet! But, later on in life, I came to appreciate her knowledge and I will always attribute my love for everything natural to my Aunt Eva. My aunt was SO ahead of the times and is incredibly intelligent!
As an adult, I am constantly researching natural health remedies. I believe that God put a natural cure or treatment on the Earth for everything. We are just not smart enough to find it. We’ve practiced these remedies in my own family for decades. About ten years ago, I came across the book, and it talked about MSM. (Methylsulfonylmethane) With a name like that, you can see why they had to abbreviate it! MSM has lots and lots of benefits!
MSM can, for starters:
Reset Seasonal Allergies
Improve Wound Healing
Help Hair and Nails Become Stronger
Treat Seasonal Allergies Using MSM
MSM is something that is a compound naturally found in our bodies. Think the “cushiony” stuff that’s in between your joints. Babies have a whole lot of it. If you’ve ever touched the softness of a baby’s cheeks, all that goodness is the extra MSM flowing through their bodies. Also, you get a lot of MSM naturally when you are pregnant. That is what we refer to as “the glow” that pregnant women get.
The only people in the world that never lose MSM are the Japanese. Overall Japanese people’s skin stays plushy and pliable and keeps them having a youthful look their entire life and not to mention fewer joint problems and less cancer.
Unfortunately, the rest of us aren’t so lucky. With age, we gradually lose the overflow of MSM that happens naturally in our bodies. That is why supplementing it helps bring it back.
Reset Seasonal Allergies
The most exciting part to me, however, is that the author claimed that taking MSM could be used to reset seasonal allergies! The doctor claimed that you would not have allergies the following season using MSM for six to 8 weeks as instructed on the supplement bottle. As in everything, I was on it!
I tried it in the summertime. I generally did not suffer from spring allergies but instead fall allergies. Ragweed in particular. Which my youngest son also is allergic. I found after taking MSM, it worked, and I had No Ragweed allergy that falls.
I found that I had zero allergies in the fall, and it seemed to stay that way for quite some time, a couple of years. Then a couple of years later, my fall allergies were back, so after doing a little research, this was very normal to happen. It seemed because I had mild and not severe allergies, resetting with MSM worked for quite some time for me.
So, after my miraculous birth of being allergy-free, I began telling everybody about it. (Friends, family members, and clients)
A Natural Cure for your Allergies
I had a client named Ben. For years I told Ben about how MSM could help him with his allergies. I got “Yeah, yeah, I know Cris.” He had fair skin, red hair, lots of freckles, and an allergic reaction to just about everything out there. Just thinking about pollen made him sneeze. Finally, he gave it a try. Every time I saw Ben, he would tell me how much MSM changed his life. He could be outside in the springtime and the fall and have zero allergies for the first time in his whole life.
MSM doesn’t just reset seasonal allergies. Studies showed that by week 3, your upper and lower respiratory system improves. In a covid world, lung capacity is more important than ever!
What’s even better is that according to the National Institutes of health, MSM fights tumors before they begin in cancer.
Some of the benefits of MSM include the following:
Natural Pain Management
Range of Motion Enhancing
Help for Arthritis and Joint Pain
For all you athletes out there:
They have also proved that taking MSM before running marathons or major exercising events for 30 days will improve your performance.
MSM is known to be relatively safe, but always ask your doctor!!
I warn people about it- don’t start taking it on a day you have to work or go to school! Because not to get too graphic or gross, I must warn you the first 24 hours; you may be a little gassy. MSM immediately starts to detoxify your system, and the toxins have to go somewhere. So besides that, I had no other side effects that were negative with the MSM.
You don’t have to purchase the most expensive brand out there, but I am a little bit of a supplement snob. I believe the health benefits of supplements will only be as good as the quality of the supplement you purchase. Try to use reputable brands with no fillers.
If you are using MSM for seasonal allergy resetting, do it BEFORE that season begins. (At least 6-8 weeks before)
MSM is available in pills or powder.
I do not use MSM all the time. I use it for allergy flare-ups and detoxification when I can feel my body begging for it. I hope you do some research for yourself if you are considering trying MSM.
I hope it brings you good health and you find yourself sneeze-free!
