felt, the majority of allergies happen during spring when the scorching heat of the sun
gets harsher with each passing day. Citrus fruit drinks contain good amounts of
Vitamin C, which aid in fighting allergies by boosting your immune system. So make sure you include these fruits or their
juices in your daily diet! Red Onion Water: I know this may not sound

  3. I suffer from allergies. And I can tell you that eucalyptus oil is one natural treatment I won't be using for my allergies. At least not any time soon. Only because I have 3 female cats. The 3rd one being an almost 6 weeks old kitten. And from what I read eucalyptus oil is one of those essential oils that is not safe if you have pets. It can be quite toxic to them. But those others I can eventually try.

  4. I wouldn't really call this an allergy, but I have a skin allergy to tattoos, not the temporary ones or the ones that you draw on with a pen, but the painful ones that require injections. Is there a cure or it and can I grow out of it or do I naturally have sensitive skin and didn't notice it?

  5. Garlic no way I’ll won’t eat that and I say to my mom and dad don’t give me garlic when I’m sick OK I’m never going to eat garlic

  6. If you use Tumeric. You have to use with honey or black pepper to activate it fully in your body.. Is an amazing root/herb.. Also cleans your gut.. Gets rid of bad bacteria only and is also good for your teeth!!
