Yep, I attribute my current allergy-free state to clean living. Well, clean eating, more specifically.
I don’t know what specifically did the trick. I do eat some dairy, but not a whole lot — just homemade fat-free yogurt from time to time. I do not eat anything that is processed or refined — no sugar, no white flour — stuff like that. And nothing with additives and preservatives.
Last summer I contracted an upper respiratory infection that hung on and hung on and wouldn’t go away. My primary care doc couldn’t figure out how to get rid of it, so I went to an ENT specialist at the end of summer and got prescriptions for several meds, including steroidal nasal sprays, to be taken daily. I started the clean eating at the beginning of December, and by the end of December I completely stopped taking all those meds, with no adverse effects.
And now, presto chango, so far no allergies. Long may that continue.
Several of you asked for information on clean eating. Google “clean eating” and you will find many, many great resources online.
