Vitamins and Allergies
I suffered from severe Allergies for a long time. I tried Echinacea for a few weeks. It did help me control my Allergies.
One day, I went to see my friend. She was a Pharmacist at a Rite Aid Pharmacy in Queens, New York. I mentioned that I had been using Echinacea for a few weeks, with positive results. She told me stop using Echinacea. She told me that I could get side effects if I kept on using Echinacea for a long time. She told me that the proper way would be to use it for two weeks, then take a break for two weeks. But that meant that I would be suffering from my Allergies every other two weeks.
She told me that there was another solution. She told me to start taking a combination of Vitamins on a daily basis. These Vitamins would help boost my immune system and, thus, control my Allergies. I took her advice and started taking the Vitamins that she recommended. Was I surprised / Absolutely ! My Allergies were under control.
That was 15 years ago. I am still good and my Allergies under control.
The Vitamins that I used ( and still using) are
- Vitamin C 1000mg
- Vitamin E 400iu
- Zinc 50mg
This is only my personal experience.
Please always consult your Personal Physician BEFORE using Vitamins.
