Right now I am on a mission to cure my allergies-not just treat them with meds. I am under the impression that it's possible to cure them-I have read a lot about it and I believe it's possible, I just need to find out what's going to work for me.
Currently I have invested in a neti pot. While it is not a complete fix, it does seem to be helping. I also am drinking 1/8 C of Apple Cider Vinegar once a day. It is nasty, and the worst thing ever to ingest!! It also may be helping. I'm also taking Las Vegas Allergy Mix drops under the tongue. They're basically a homeopathic method-they're supposed to help me build up an immunity to the things that I'm allergic to.
I believe I'm a good candidate for building up an immunity to things because I'm not allergic to my cat. I am allergic to every other cat I come across-indoor or outdoor-to the point that I break out into hives, but I am no longer allergic to my own. I feel like there is some significance to this.
So I appreciate all the suggestions for medication-but I really have tried them all with zero results. I wouldn't be in this state if they hadn't stopped working. (And yes, I have tried ALL of them-I've had allergies my entire life, believe me I have) And really I want to try and get away from treating allergies solely with meds SO that next time I'm pregnant or nursing I still have something I can do.
Luckily something I'm doing is beginning to work, so I'll keep posting on progress because I'm really excited that I may have found a cure! (at least for me ;))
