natural remedies for hayfever – update 2

Submitted by on Monday, 15 June 2009 Loading Add to favourites  3 Comments

andrew broch, inventor of the qu chi acupressure bandI’m well and truly in the depths of hayfever season now! As you might remember from last week’s post, I have been using the Qu Chi acupressure band with great success. I found a 60% reduction in symptoms straight away; notably an absence of sneezing fits, streaming nose and itchy eyes.

By the middle of last week, the grasses around here were at their peak and I found myself suffering for it.

Keeping things in perspective, however, I believe my symptoms have still been
dramatically reduced by use of the Qu Chi band. Yes, my eyes have itched, but only once during the day, and very mildly.

I stepped up my ‘beat hayfever with natural remedies’ regime by adding:

Natural hayfever remdies

  • Haymax barrier cream
  • A steamer in the bedroom at night with eucalyptus and lavender in it
  • nightly massages from Mr Green on my feet – he worked around the sinus areas and we used a blend of oils that would knock anyone out!

Improved sleep

Using all of these natural and safe remedies meant that I was sleeping half the week instead of none of it, like past years; so this was a definite improvement.

I had one spectacularly bad night on Thursday, where I didn’t sleep at all. I spent the entire night waking myself up because I couldn’t breathe through my nose. This led to dry mouth, sore throat and I’d wake myself up because I felt like I was suffocating.

I tried to sleep in the lounge, in a more upright position, as the room is cooler than our bedroom, but it didn’t work.

Remove pollen

I then remembered about the advice to have a shower and wash your hair before bed to get rid of any pollen. So on the Friday, I striped the bed, put fresh laundry on, gave the room a thorough vacuum and indeed had a bath before bed, along with all the other measures.

This definitely helped and, at the end of the second week of using the Qu Chi band, I would most certainly recommend it to people looking for a natural, safe, effective and easy to use remedy.

Discount on Qu Chi band

If you want to try a Qu Chi band for yourself, Andrew, inventor of the band and pictured above, is offering you 20% off, simply by quoting ‘GREEN’ at the airtight international checkout

    Hello Brad, welcome to the site. Have you used the Qu Chi band yourself? I’m not sure I understand your comment, apart from a plug for the health remedies site; would you care to expand on what you mean?
