Ah-choo! Herbs for Allergies

April showers bring May flowers! Or in the case of Denver today, April snow brings much needed moisture to Colorado. A couple of days ago, everyone was sniffling and sneezing as our early Spring winds blew pollen and flowers all over us. Now we are back into Winter, leaving our bodies not quite sure how to react.

To strengthen your Wei Qi (Defensive layer of energy), begin taking Huang Qi (Astragalus membranaceous) and Elderberry (Sambucus nigra). You can take as a tincture, tea or syrup. Also drink 2 cups of Nettle (Urtica diocia) a day. Fresh if possible. There’s nothing like the new growth of wild nettle to stop that post natal drip and watery eyes.

Remember, even one or two cups of herbal tea a day can make a big difference.

With love,
