Grandma’s Herbs - Allergy Defense
(Immune System Support for Symptoms Associated with Allergies, Hayfever & Sinus)
An allergy is a disorder of the immune system. Allergic
reactions occur to environmental substances known as allergens. An allergic
reaction is predictable and rapid. Common allergic reactions include eczema,
hives, hay fever and asthma. These immune system reactions generally include
inflammation of soft tissues and excessive production of mucous. Our research
and development team wanted to address these issues without using drugs,
chemicals, steroids or other products that would produce unwanted side effects.
We found herbs that aid in minimizing the allergic reactions so that they are
manageable and comfortable.
The herbal combination in Grandma’s Herbs ALLERGY DEFENSE
supports your immune system, diminishes some of the mucous production and
soothes and relaxes the inflamed soft tissues that are affected by a typical
allergic reaction. This product is a preventative product and should to be taken
before and during seasons that symptoms normally occur.
Recommendation: 3 Capsules in the morning and 3 more at night.

year now. It works so well for me I sent some to my son. It has helped him as
well. I’m consistently recommending it to everyone I know with allergies, what a

Allergy Defense - Description
An allergy is a disorder of the immune system. Allergic reactions occur to normally harmless environmental
substances known as allergens. An allergic reaction is one of
four forms of hypersensitivity and is called type I (or immediate)
hypersensitivity. It is known that white blood cells (also known as
lymphocytes) are a fundamental component of the immune system that protects our
bodies from invaders. When they make a mistake, an allergic response can occur.
When a lymphocyte encounters a particle or cell and identifies it as a foreign
invader, it produces antibodies specifically engineered to fight that particular
threat. There are five basic types of antibodies, called
Igs. Each is
classified by type with a letter suffix:
Ig known to be
responsible for most allergic reactions to food is
IgG is also
An allergic reaction is predictable and rapid. Common allergic reactions include eczema, hives, hay
fever and asthma. Mild allergies like hay fever are highly prevalent and cause
symptoms such as itchiness, and runny nose. Allergies can complicate other
issues in an asthmatic person. In some people, severe allergies to environmental
or dietary allergens or to medication may result in life-threatening
anaphylactic reactions and potentially
death. Most allergic reactions are mild and are resolved by simply eliminating
the particular allergen that is causing the reaction.
occur when the immune system, in an effort to reject a certain food or other
substance, creates an antibody to that food,
immunoglobulin E. In other words, the blood cells of an allergic person
are "misinformed' at the genetic level and cause the production of large
quantities of IgE
antibodies. The antibody becomes attached on one side to the food/substance
molecule and on the other side to a mast cell (mast cells are a type of cell
containing histamine and other allergy mediators instrumental in the allergic
response). When this happens, histamines and other chemicals are released from
the mast cells, causing such immediate responses as runny nose, itchy eyes, skin
rashes and indigestion.
IgE can cause anaphylaxis, an
extreme, sometimes even life-threatening response in which the airways swell,
sometimes to the point where the person cannot breathe.
The keys are that an allergy is an immune system reaction and that the reaction generally includes
inflammation of soft tissues and excessive production of mucus. Our research and
development team wanted to address these issues without using drugs, chemicals,
steroids or other products that would produce unwanted side effects. We found
herbs that aid in minimizing the allergic reactions so that they are manageable
and comfortable. Herbs that are beneficial for allergies (if you are not
allergic to them) are Burdock Root, Dandelion, and
Echinacea. These herbs help to purify the blood, boost the immune system
and improve organ function. In traditional medicine, some herbs whose pollen can
cause symptoms of hay fever have been used as a way to reduce symptoms of hay
fever, which is the homeopathic theory of "like cures like". The most important
of these are Goldenrod and Ragweed (Ambrosia
ambrosioides). Eyebright and Elder
also have a reputation for use as hay fever remedies. However, an individual
allergic to one of these plants should avoid them unless under the care of a
doctor of natural medicine.
Burdock Root: Burdock root contains high amounts of inulin and mucilage. This may
explain its soothing effects on the gastrointestinal tract. Bitter constituents
in the root may also explain the traditional use of burdock to improve
digestion. It also contains polyacetylenes that have been shown to have antimicrobial activity.
Dandelion: Dandelion is a natural diuretic that increases urine production by promoting the excretion of salts and water
from the kidney. Dandelion may be used for a wide range of conditions requiring
mild diuretic treatment such as poor digestion, liver disorders, and high blood
Echinacea: Echinacea is another herb useful for the
relief of allergy symptoms. With a rich history of use in Native American
traditions, echinacea possesses natural anti-inflammatory properties. Echinacea also
helps relieve the symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections and is useful
for sore throats and even acne.
Spirulina: Spirulina, wheat and barley grasses are
filled with antioxidants and other nutrients, which help to detox the body.
Detoxification can calm allergy symptoms by helping to flush out toxic build up
in the system. These herbs are some of the best allergy medicines.
Nettle Leaf: Nettle leaf can help in the
reduction in symptoms of hay fever, including sneezing and itchy eyes. For help
with hay fever symptoms, consider taking 450 mg of Nettle Leaf capsules or
tablets two to three times per day, or a 2–4 ml tincture, three times per day.
Do not take this herb if you have high blood pressure.
Horseradish: The “heating” qualities of
horseradish are a clue to its most popular therapeutic use: clearing up nasal
and chest congestion. As well as helping to clear the respiratory passages and
eliminate excess mucus, this herb is effective for the relief of cough symptoms
Garlic: One of the oldest recorded culinary
spices, garlic Allium sativum is mentioned as a food in the
Bible, and is known to have been part of the diet of Egyptian workers as long
ago as 2600 BC. It is the dominant flavour in much of Mediterranean cuisine, but
is also a more subtle addition to many Asian dishes. But alongside its
popularity in food, garlic has a long history of medicinal use – a traditional
history that has gained increasing recognition from science. Garlic preparations
have long been used to relieve the congestion of colds and hayfever
Reishi Mushrooms: ReishiMushrooms, Ganoderma lucidum,
(Ling Zhi) is documented to have great medicinal value. The reishi extract has been shown
to be effective in clearing up a large variety of skin allergic conditions either due to
food or airborne allergens. Ganoderma extract has been found to be
useful in detoxifying the kidneys and improving its overall function.
