Do You Have Fall Allergies?

For some of us, seasonal allergies should be winding down. I am thankfully one of those who gets some relief. However, this is not the case for my husband. He's been sneezing and dealing with his allergies for quite some time.

My favorite herb for allergies is Stinging Nettle. If you want to try it out, check out my article at ehow on How to Treat Allergies with Stinging Nettle. I drink stinging infusion throughout the year to boost my level of overall health and to help with my allergies. (I'm allergic to mold which is something that stays with me all year).

Herbal Remedies for Digestive Distress

When I have a stomach ache, I have several herbal remedies I turn to. Here is a short list of some of my favorites:
  • Chamomile - This is by far my favorite. It's gentle and manages to calm the aches down, especially if the stomach ache is caused by stress.
  • Peppermint - This is the herb I reach for if my stomach ache is the resule of flatulence. As a side note, I also use this for sinuses.
  • Digestive bitters - Herbs that are slightly bitter, such as dandelion, also help with stomach aches, especially if the stomach ache is the result of a full stomach.

If those three don't work, I may need to do some extra digging and find the cause of the stomach ache so I can find some additional herbal remedies.
