Natural Allergy and Sinus Releif Program

How to relieve allergies and sinuses naturally
Most people who suffer with allergy and sinus problems feel they must resort to using medications that have unpleasant and even dangerous side effects. For those who may be interested in safer, more natural alternatives, some of the following premium products by Shaklee may be of interest.

TO STRENGTHEN THE IMMUNE SYSTEM START HERE
Optiflora Probiotic Capsule

Scientists now believe 70% of the immune system is located in the gut … a good place to start to strengthen our immune system against allergic reactions. There appears to be a surprising correlation between symptoms of upper respiratory congestion and sinus discomfort to poor elimination in the lower intestines. This is often associated with an overgrowth of the Candida yeast organisms. An increasing number of Americans suffer from Candida when the essential friendly microbes Nature intended to reside in our intestines get destroyed by medications such as antibiotics, steroid-based drugs (e.g. asthma medications), oral contraceptives, and more. Couple this with a diet culture so entrenched in sweets, breads, baked goods, chips, and snacks that are the favorite foods of the Candida organisms.
The Optifora probiotic capsule

A patented technology that allows the very fragile probiotics to pass through the highly acidic stomach protected by a triple encapsulation so they arrive exactly at the right location in the lower intestines.
Nutriferon

Developed and extensively tested by immunologists in Japan, this proprietary blend of natural plant extracts is derived from pumpkin seeds, safflower flowers, plantago seeds, and Japanese honeysuckle flower buds. Nutriferon supports and stimulates the immune system by increasing the activity of macrophages (white blood cells) and inducing natural interferon production. It optimizes the body’s immune response against environmental irritants and airborne substances (as with allergies and asthma). Completely safe – no adverse reactions to these plant extracts recorded.
Sustained Release Vita C

For continuous antioxidant protection against environmental assaults, this unique all-natural sustained formula slowly releases Vitamin C into your blood stream over a 5-hour period and provides nutrients from the entire vitamin C complex including bioflavonoids. Thus, it is very economical. It has been found to protect against smog, chronic infection, allergies, asthma, colds, flu, swollen glands, anemia, smoke, poor diet, stress, bruising, varicose and spider veins, colon polyps, and slow healing.
Vitalea Multivitamin/Multimineral tablet

Supported by 7 clinical studies, patented bio-activated absorption system. Exceptional quality, over 340 quality tests on every batch produced. Contains 23 essential vitamins and critical minerals, including 800 IU of Vitamin D3. Kosher and gluten-free.

 

Also helpful to relieve symptoms:
Alfalfa

With deep roots extending 10 to 20 feet into the soil, this amazing plant is rich in trace minerals and protein plus contains 8 digestive enzymes. Recognized as a natural anti-histamine, allergy sufferers report good results from taking 3 or 4 of the little compressed sun-dried leaf tablets … containing no pesticides, fungicides, growth regulators, or synthetic hormones. Other popular uses for alfalfa are swelling, pain and stiff joints, ulcers, stomach ailments, hiatal hernia, water retention, gout, body odor, and bad breath.

 

Premium Garlic Complex

Retains all the potency of one clove of fresh raw garlic without the odor. Garlic is traditionally used for its anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral and
anti-inflammatory properties. People often take it to reduce symptoms of
allergy, asthma, colds, flu, sinus infections, yeast infections, diarrhea &flatulence. It also has heart protective properties of lowering elevated blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
Diet

Emphasize fresh vegetables and avoid sugar, breads, and baked goods.

REDUCE EXPOSURE TO TOXINS

In addressing allergy and sinus problems, a two-fold approach is usually recommended:

1) Strengthen the immune system (as discussed above), and
2) Avoid products that could aggravate allergy and sinus conditions such as certain foods and cleaning products. Many cleaning products not only irritate the skin, but their odors can aggravate upper respiratory problems.

Shaklee Get Clean Starter Kit

Step one in reducing toxins in and around our living space is to remove all toxic cleaning products from the home ..and replace them with the non-toxic, earth-friendly Get Clean Product line. Oprah Winfrey named these remarkable, effective, and yet inexpensive cleaners among her “favorite things”. They can be purchased individually or in the most popular Get Clean Starter Kit. The kit includes products for the kitchen, the bathroom, and the laundry … in particular fragrance-free dryer sheets (made from vegetables and biodegradable), a pint of Basic H2 (that makes 48 gallons of all purpose cleaner for about $10), and Scour Off cleanser for pots, pans, and stove tops in the kitchen and for tile cleaning in the bathroom. Kosher certified.
Basic-G Highly Concentrated Germicide

Disinfectant made without cresol. Cresol is easily absorbed by the skin and causes digestive disturbances, nervous disorders, mental changes, skin eruptions, and jaundice. Basic G kills parvovirus, feline leukemia, distemper virus, and the AIDS virus on surfaces. Note: for allergy and sinus relief in the winter when it’s dry, remember to use a humidifier with a few drops of Basic-G to inhibit bacterial growth.

Shaklee Enfuselle Nutrition Therapy for the Skin Products

Combine advanced technology with herbal and botanical extracts and antioxidants …especially formulated for sensitive skin. Hypoallergenic, pH balanced, no artificial col
orants or heavy mineral oils, noncomedogenic (won’t clog pores). Plus a comprehensive highly derma-available complex designed to actually break each link in the chain of free radical damage. Literally reverses the accelerated aging the sun of the skin caused by computer screens, fluorescent lights, and the sun.
OTHER HELPFUL PRODUCTS
Defend and Resist Complex

Contains Echinacea … which activates the immune system, promotes production of white blood cells, enhances resistance to infection (viral and bacterial), anti-inflammatory, promotes wound healing, reduces mucous, relieves boils, gangrene, ulcerations, bites, abscesses, and fights candida. Also contains larchtree extract and elderberry to surround viruses and help prevent their reproduction. Best taken at onset of avirus. Can also be used as a zinc lozenge or made into a tea. Very soothing to sore throats.
Because the brain is the most sensitive organ in the body, many experts recommend eliminating foods and environmental irritants that could create brain allergies.

I just want to let you in on one of my dirty clean little secrets!
The secret is  my all time favorite and most used product ever.

I use this product for EVERYTHING and have been for 3 years!!!!

I am not kidding!

What is Basic H (Household)

I use it for dusting the house, washing the windows and mirrors, mopping the floor, power washing the house, shampooing the carpet, wiping the appliances, washing the granite to spot removal and much, much more!!!

It is called Basic H2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate!

Not only is it the best……it is the CHEAPEST and……….it is the SAFEST!!!!!!!

It is cheaper than vinegar and it is organic!!!!  Oh yeah, and ………..it WORKS!!

Basic H instructions

 

 

HERE ARE OTHER CLEANING SUGGESTIONS……

HOUSEHOLD

General Cleaning:

Use ½ teaspoon to quart of warm water. It cleans kitchen doors, woodwork, walls, ceilings, etc.

Appliances and Bathroom Fixtures:

Use ¼ teaspoon to pint of water. It leaves refrigerators odor-free and sanitary. Great for bathroom tile!

Windows, Mirrors, All Glass:

Use 1 – 2 drops in 4oz spray bottle. Wipe dry with paper towel. Do not use a lot of Basic-H or glass will smear.

Dishes:

Use ½ teaspoon in the dishpan. Fill dirty pans with water, add ½ teaspoon Basic-H2 and let stand to loosen stuck particles.

Automatic Dishwashers:

Use Shaklee Dishwasher Concentrate.

Floors:

Use 1 tablespoon to a gallon of cold water, wring mop and wipe up dirt. Leaves floor shining. Dusting: Squeeze sponge out of solution of ¼ teaspoon to pint of water. With almost dry sponge, wipe of dust, fingerprints, candy spots, etc. Or use spray bottle and clean cloth. Everything disappears from furniture, leaving wax finish beautifully bright and non-magnetic, making it unnecessary to dust as often.

Woolens, Silks, Nylons, All Fin Fabrics:

Use ½ teaspoon to basin of water. For spots, apply a drop or two directly on the spot and press in with thumb. Immerse garment in cold water solution of 1 teaspoon per gallon of water, let stand a few minutes, then rinse by squeezing water through and laying out to dry.

Spot Remover:

Apply Basic-H2 directly on spotted area. Use a toothbrush or finger to rub Basic-H2 into area. Wipe off with damp cloth or rinse in basin of water (Coffee, lipstick, ink, grass, etc).

Frying Vats:

Use ½ cup to 3 gallons of water. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. It dissipates stubborn crusts without damage to vats.

Concrete and Mortar Mix:

Use ½ oz. to a gallon of water. Makes cement and mortar spread easier and smoother, set harder.

Knives:

Use a few drops on cutting stone for sharpening knives. Keep moist and add as needed. Doesn’t clog stone, which is very important in sharpening tools. Stone rinses free of residue

Phonograph Records:

Use same solution as for glass. Clean with soft, dry cloth. It leaves no residual magnetism.

Wallpaper:

Excellent in removing wallpaper.

Diapers:

Use ¼ teaspoon of Basic-H2 and 1 teaspoon of Basic-G to pail of water. It eliminates odors in the washroom when diapers must stand.

Fish Odors:

Use ½ tablespoon per quart of water. Basic-H2 cleaning solutions work wonders around boats, docks and other “fishy” places.

Boat Algae:

Use ½ tablespoon to gallon of water.

Spray Snow or Poster Paint on Windows:

Remove it with ¼ teaspoon to quart of warm water.

 

 

PERSONAL

Cleaning Hands:

Put a few drops in palm. Rub thoroughly over both hands and add a little water. Continue with usual washing action. Add a touch more water as needed and rinse. Removes tobacco stains, onion and garlic odors. Variation – mix ¼ Basic-H2 and ½ water in a 4 oz squeeze bottle

Gum:

Use full strength to remove gum from skin or carpeting.

 Shoe Cleaner:

Use 1 drops on a wet cloth. It will not remove wax. Shine with dry cloth.

 

 

AUTOMOTIVE

Washing:

Use ½ tablespoon to gallon of water. Wash small area at a time, and hose off. Wiping dry is not necessary. Wipe windshield, windows and chrome with paper towels after rinsing. Bugs and road grime float away.

Engines:

Use ½ oz to one gallon water to clean engine. It will not affect paint, gaskets or insulating material. Best results can be achieved when the engine is hot for fastest drying of the ignition system.

Battery Terminals:

Use ¼ teaspoon to pint of water. Spray on battery terminals, let soak for 2 minutes and clean with wire brush. Use full strength Basic-h on battery terminals to avoid corrosion or galvanic action.

MISCELLANEOUS

Air Filters:

Use ¼ teaspoon to quart of warm water. Air filters are cleaned with excellent results, leaving them free of dirt, oil, or chemical residue.

House Plants:

Use a few drops in water. Water plants and they will flourish. Use to wipe down leaves also.
Outside Windows: Use ½ teaspoon to “ortho-type” bottle applicator full of water. This should let 2 gallons of water through applicator to spray on windows and screens.

ACCESSORIES

Humidifiers:

Use 1 or 2 drops in water to help prevent rust and scum.

Water Soluble Gum Tape:

Use 2 to 3 drops in a 16 oz spray bottle, or tape dispenser with water tank.

Toilet Bowl Cleaner:

Fill toilet tank dispenser with Basic-H2. Place in toilet tank. It will automatically release a measured amount of Basic-H2 when you flush, to keep toilet bowl clean for months.

Ironing:

A few drops in steam iron will keep the jets and interior clean.

Plumbing:

Will keep pipes open and clean when used regularly. It emulsifies grease and can eliminate cleaning of grease traps.

Basic-G 

Will deodorize bathroom areas, garbage cans and other areas where bacterial growth can cause unpleasant odors. Basic-G is concentrated for economy.

IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER!!

  • Basic-H2 is the most economical cleaner you can buy. One quart makes 192 gallons of cleaning solution by following directions.
  • Do Not Use More Than Recommended. A little goes a long way! Save $$!
  • Basic-H2 contains no acids, no alkalis, no kerosene or solvent, and has no offensive or detergent odor.
  • Basic-H2 has pH factor of 6.5, right in the range of human skin.
  • Basic-H2 makes water many times wetter.
  • Basic-H2 is a fantastically versatile cleaner. The successor is soap!
  • Basic-H2 does not hinder bacterial action of septic tanks or cesspools.
  • DO NOT put fingers or foreign matter into Basic-H2 container. Large amounts of bacteria can cause degrading action and weaken your cleaner.
  • In extremely stubborn areas of grease or stains, use Shaklee’s Scour Off scouring cleaner.

There are 1,000 different uses for this environmental sound product. Enjoy!

Wow, that was a long post!!!!

Anyway, now you know my ABSOLUTE  FAVORITE CLEANING PRODUCT CLEANER EVER!!!!!!!

 

I recommend starting with:

Get Clean Start Kit (regular or un-scented)
Basic G {Germicide}

I want to be honest with you, I am not “selling” these products just to “sell” something.

 

I believe in doing what’s right….AND using natural products around our kids, pets, and house is RIGHT!

 

It is up to us to give our kids the best we can.  We do everything for our kids, so why not clean WITHOUT harsh chemicals.

 

Not only is the Get Clean Line natural & safe for us, our families, and the planet, the actually work and by that, I mean…they ROCK….and they save you money!

 

I can’t think of ANY reason why someone would not use these….REALLY, I can’t!!

 

If you like the “smell” of cleaners, add some essential oils to your cleans.
