Suffer From Allergies No More!

I heard an interesting fact the other day and I pretty well ignored it until recently. For about four days we had beautiful weather. 45 to 55 degree weather. Beautiful sunshine. Blue skies. And although the weather here has taken a turn for the worse, muddy, wet snowy mess, for the few beautiful days we did have, I was brutally reminded that I suffer from seasonal allergies. The tickle in my throat, the itchy watery eyes and the runny nose all came rushing back like a fast moving freight train and with the beautiful grace of a charging Rhino.

But the wonderful little trick I had learned actually seemed to work! I heard that eating fresh Broccoli Sprouts, a wonderful source of Sulphoraphane, will help to alleviate the symptoms of seasonal allergies. It's not a medically proven fact, but it worked really well for me, and better than any over the counter, allergy relief full of strange man made ingredients, this is completely natural. And I like anything that is natural!
