I have horrific allergies every day of the year: environmental pollution, hayfever and cats. I've tried Benedryl, Claratin, Zyrtec, Allegra, Afrin, Sudafed, Clarinex, some Rx eyedrops-- nothing ever works more than a couple hours :-(
My doctor told me my last option was a steroid......... and I dumped that doctor!! He never once offered me non-pharmaceutical options, clearly he only saw my health as easy $$$ in his pocket. Important life lesson: you have to look out for yourself!!

I discovered NETTLES while browsing the vitamin section of Sprouts (it's like Whole Foods, a natural grocery store). I was looking at the hippie stuff in the allergy section and most of the ingredients lists included "nettle leaf"...... so I went home and Googled my heart out! NETTLES are like a secret cure for allergies- why don't more people talk about this??!
My friend has normal/seasonal allergies when doing yardwork: she takes 1 capsule (400mg) when she needs it before going outside and says it works great!

My allergies are more intense- I can't sleep with the window open in the summer, I vacuum everyday and run an air purifier 24/7. So what works best for me is consistent nettles in my system: I take about 800mg worth of NETTLE capsules twice/day. NETTLES take a little longer in my body to stop my severe allergies (about 15min+) but mentally I'm a lot more clear than when taking otc allergy medicine. No drowsiness. No high feeling.
UPDATE: now that I've been taking NETTLES for a few months, I've noticed that my allergies have significantly improved, YAY! I've forgotten to take my nettles once or twice and didn't realize it- my allergies weren't torturing me :-) So sometimes now I'll take 400mg in the morning and only a second capsule later if my allergies kick back in and I need it. Nettles are amazing!!
