So, I have been having horrific, horrible, horrendous, whore-ish. Ok, not whore-ish. Basically, I’ve been having really bad allergies. I could barely breathe and it felt like tiny people were inside my nostrils with feathers, tickling me. My eyes were watery and itchy, my nose was stuffy and runny and my emotions? Hysterical. I thought I was dying at one point. No joke.
It got to the point where I was taking Claritin or Allegra everyday and that can’t be good. I was desperate for a natural remedy. So, of course, I didn’t do anything about it. Then came Saturday, which was yesterday, which is also Farmer’s Market Day for me.
So, there I am, at the farmer’s market. I’m walking past the stands with my reusable tote feeling like I’m single-handedly saving the environment and channeling my inner-hippie when I walk by a honey stand. I love honey so I stopped by and noticed this jar of yellowish brown granules and asked, “What’s that?”
My life changed. I discovered bee pollen and how local pollen and honey are thought to immunize you to the pollen that cause allergies for many people, myself included. I bought some. It totally helped with my allergies! They are not nearly as intense. Can’t wait to see how I feel in a week!
The lady told me to start out taking 1/4 teaspoon everyday in the morning for a week. Then increase to 1/2 teaspoon for the next week. And so, on in 1/4 teaspoon increments until by the end of the month, you have taken 1 teaspoon for a week.
Not sure what to do after that. Am I cured? Or do I keep taking a teaspoon daily? I’ll ask her when I see her.
Don’t take it straight up like me. It tastes like shit. Not that I know what shit tastes like. Take it with water or in tea.
I will be posting a Bee Pollen Tea recipe soon.
