It is interesting how where you live can affect allergies. Where I grew up I had terrible seasonal allergies. I moved 2 years ago and find that I don't have nearly the allergic responses I use to have.

The supplement she mentioned to take with Vitamin C is corsitin, a bio-flavenoid in garlic and other foods.

Oh, and she mentioned bromoline, a protein-digesting enzyme in pineapple

Is anyone familiar with allergies within dogs. One of my dogs has bad airborne allergies. I have recently started him back on benedryl after spring started when I noticed he was becoming miserable. I would prefer a homeopathic remedy. Just yesterday I found QBC at Whole Foods which is Quercetin and Vit. C capsules. I am going to give him 1 capsule twice daily. Has anyone ever tried this or similar products on their pets?

My son has been taking Quercetin, Bromalain, and Stinging Nettles to keep him off of prescription meds for several years. He had reached a point where the doctor wanted him on several different prescriptions and a shot. We had to find a better way. This works and he doesn't even have to take the amounts discussed here. We also started Bee Propolis and Turmeric to keep off of asthma meds. Do your research about side effects. Some of these we alternate on and off during high and low allergy seasons.

I was wondering what you have found to help with egg, fish, peanut allergies. Yesterday, I talked with a doctor that suggested corsitine? I need to understand how that is helpful. Any suggestions?
