Subject: RE: BS: Allergies
I'm suffering too here in the still-chilly north; I asked my doc for Allegra but she told me to try over-the-counter Claritin first. It gives me the worst buzz!!! So today I'm trying nothing but Tylenol to counter-act the headache that accompanies all the other misery.

Following advice from my naturopath (who now lives in Tuscon!):
I also eat a spoonful of local honey a few times a day- seems the bees have the answer- it does relieve the symptoms for a few moments. And supposedly if I'd remembered to get Nettle pills from the local health store and started taking them a week or so ago, it would relieve symptoms, too.

But the stuffed head, oozing eyes, and drowsy feeling is hard to live with for now!
