Oh My! Lions and Tigers and Singing and Allergies!

Singing and Allergies?

For Singers struggling with Allergies…

This is the time of year for allergies, which unfortunately means trouble for most singers. Sinuses and throat trouble, coughing, sneezing and an overall uncomfortable time.

If you are a performer, this can mean a loss of income for you; no one wants that! It can also give you practicing singers the allusion that you are loosing progress. Which usually is not the case!

Let’s give you some solutions to these darn allergies plaguing us this time of year!

I came across this wonderful article last night while I was in search of some help for one of my clients who is was currently suffering from allergies too!

Most of you who knew Naomi and for those or for the others who didn't, she was a natural girl. She ran a Health Food Store and one of the biggest organic food buying clubs in Florida for more than seven years.

I truly believe that nature provides solutions to most illnesses and troubles that we have. Natural solutions are actually safer and more effective most times, than their pharmaceutical counterparts as well.

This means there are solutions to your physical illnesses that can be found easily in herbs, foods, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients etc. There are many very effective natural antibiotics, antimicrobiols and antifungal’s as well to help your own immune system help your body fight off the invaders.

If Singing and Allergies is plaguing you, check out the article below and let me know how it works for you!

How I Cured A Raging Sinus Infection Naturally, With No Drugs

Over the last few months I’ve been hearing about a lot of people who have been ill with terrible head colds, bronchitis, pneumonia, flus, sinus infections and ALLERGIES.

It always seems strange to me when people are coming down with stuff like this in what is not typically considered the cold, flu and allergy season. But when you stop to consider the diet and subsequent state of health of people in general, it really shouldn’t be surprising.

Last summer my husband, son, and I all became ill with terrible allergies, and sickness, the symptoms were numerous, ranging from mild to severe.

The Symptoms:

  • Extreme fatigue
  • Malaise (a general feeling of discomfort, illness, or uneasiness whose exact cause is difficult to identify)
  • Body ache
  • High fevers that lasted for over a week (My son’s fever lasted for 15 days!)
  • Coughing
  • Sneezing
  • Trouble Breathing
  • Sore and Scratchy Throat

Sound familiar?
From start to finish, the entire episode lasted for nearly two months. But our symptoms started subsiding immediately after we paid a visit to my acupuncturist and Chinese herbal doctor, who gave us some natural remedies we were able to use successfully.

Since then I’ve been devoted to natural treatments…

This year, I was once again reminded just how useful natural treatments are when the sore throat and body ache I came down with turned into conjunctivitis (pink eye) and a horrible sinus infection.

The sickness first came on in mid-June and I figured it would just be a mild sore throat that would last a day or two…

I was wrong! The sore throat, headache, body ache, fatigue and cough went on for about five days. Day six found me with a sinus headache and red, weepy eyes. I assumed these symptoms would go away without much consequence. Wrong again.

Try Using a Neti Pot

The normal course of action I take with a sinus infection and allergies is to use my neti pot and breathe hot steam with essential oils.

Important: Irrigate with Net Pot Frequently

Within a few days without regular irrigation, the infection became so acute I was in excruciating pain daily until afternoon when the congestion would subside and have me believing that it was on its way out. Then, the following day I’d wake up again only to be in agonizing pain within an hour or two.

Get Checked for Candida Overgrowth

Just two days before my sinus infection developed, I was told I had strep in my body, and I tested positive for candida. From my own researchI know that both sinus problems, allergies and strep could likely be caused by a candida overgrowth.

If you do have candida, try this candida cleanse: Start a grain and sugar-free diet and began taking Candidase by Enzymedica. This is a product I’ve used before in the past, but there are other products formulated for candida removal as well.

You can Also Try these Natural Solutions

For Natural Sinus Infections Solutions:

  • Oil of oregano supplement and
  • Colloidal silver
  • Goldenseal
  • Apple cider vinegar,
  • Various immune-boosting herbal products, found in local health food stores

I personally already had many of these in my house, but for those who don’t they are available at health food stores, vitamin shops etc.

For Natural Allergy Solutions:

  • Hot compresses with oil of oregano,
  • Peppermint,
  • Lemon,
  • Melaleuca, and
  • Eucalyptus,
  • Breathed essential oils in hot steam several times a day, and used my
  • Neti-pot ’round the clock. (found online)

During this time of course, everyone around me was urging me to go to the doctor and get a prescription for antibiotics. All I could think of was how this would wipe out my immune system – especially because I now had some kind of candida problem that would inevitably only get worse with antibiotics.
