local honey and allergy relief

Hood Honey ~ Harvested from OakTown NeighborHoods, this Honey from Oakland, CA is very popular with the locals.  Our bees stay out of trouble bee-cause they are too busy gathering sweet Oakland nectars.  This honey is a middle-range amber village mix.*

Supposedly eating local honey (a teaspoon a day for 2 – 3 months before allergy season), can help you from having bad allergies.  For those in the Bay Area, Marshall Farms has honey from different areas of the Bay.  The theory is that the honey has pollen from the area and you get to ingest some of that and so your body is used to the pollen.

I think I’m trying it a little later this year for it to work (still trying it though) and definitely will do it next year.  My allergy cocktail of claritin, nasonex, similisan, and a couple other things aren’t helping.

*  Even the beekeepers are making fun of the crime in Oakland.  Ridiculous.  Hood Honey is really good though.

** Random extras.  I still need to try Tupelo honey; and, Strauss Family Creamery, where we get our milk, makes really good vanilla and chocolate ice cream.  It’s cheaper than Ben & Jerry’s by a bunch.  Worth seeking out, tastes homemade.

  1. Recent research and advancement in natural therapies have found safe solutions for treating them. Homeopathic allersodes, OM Factor, etc from Biogetica give excellent relief from symptom and help correct the altered immune response for faster and lasting relief plus cure. These basically teach your body to process an allergen without having an allergic reaction. These natural solutions are really a worth a try.
