It’s been a week since I started my new routine to manage my allergies.

I’d made the necessary lifestyle changes, but I experienced no progress. In fact, it got worse. So, I did some more research, and found my answers on Oil of Olay’s website (not promoting the product, but I was at the point where I needed to look in this direction). I also went back to Uchee Pines Lifestyle Center website, to review some other protocols I may have missed.

Well, the OOL product worked immediately for the inflammation; I’m very pleased with the results. Using the product, along with EVOO (unrefined, unprocessed, extra virgin olive oil), daily, I see a dramatic change on the outside.

Along with the elimination & challenge diet, vitamins and minerals( I take the health market brands), I’ve noticed reduced cravings, and my weight is dropping-it’s basically a gluten-free vegan diet I’m eating. I figured I may have gluten intolerance, but after I took out the gluten-wow! My body is loving it! The other changes: switching to all natural fabrics, using toxin-free laundry soap, and more-I’m making those changes one by one, as finances permit.

I started drinking P’au D’arco and Red Clover teas, and will continue to do so for the next week. I’m only doing them short term, as I don’t want to take herbals on a regular basis. I only use the heavy herbs when necessary. The herbs I bought from the West Indian mart, in particular, cerasee, I’ll try after I’m finished using the first two herbs. I researched all my herbs on academic and well-known herbalists’ websites, found YouTube videos on how to prepare each one, so now I can take my time and go through them. I’ll keep only the ones that work well for me.

I’m just so excited that my lifetime challenge with allergies is turning around. It’s nice to be able to do this-and find out what the doctor will say!
