Mother Nature’s Natural
Treatment for Allergies… by Maurice Petersen
Do you or someone who love suffer from
seasonal allergies? Do sinus allergies limit your enjoyment in the great outdoors? You can take an over the counter or prescription
medication—but as you already know those can leave you groggy and nauseated. But what is the allergy sufferer to do?
Allergies—A Closer Look at What
Most allergy sufferers think they know
what causes their wheezing and sneezing. They will point to a specific plant, food, or animal. ‘I am allergic to that,’
they will say. But allergies are much more complicated than that. Our immune systems are in charge of beating back bacterial
and viral invaders. Sometimes, though, our immune systems mistakenly see substances such as pollen, dust, or animal dander
as a form of viral or bacterial invader. Then the body starts the wheezing, sneezing, other symptoms we know all too well
in an effort to get rid of it. This isn’t a serious immune system dysfunction, but it is fairly annoying to the sufferer.
Brown seaweed Spells Relief
Researchers at the Department of Agriculture
at Ryukyu University in Japan have found that fuciodan—a key component of brown seaweed called Limu Moui by the Tongans—works
in several ways to help boost positive immune reactions in the body. The nutrient fucoidan can stimulate the production of
interleukin 12 and interferon-fA. These in tern can suppress the overproduction of IgE, which is largely responsible for many
allergy symptoms. We aren’t going to get too technical here, but it is important to understand how IgE affects your
allergy symptoms. IgE occurs naturally in your body. It is thought to be responsible for killing parasitic infections. Normally
we only have a tiny amount of this immunogobulin in our blood. Researchers don’t fully understand how it happens, but
certain substances trigger the over production of IgE. IgE starts attacking substances that aren’t parasites, and you
notice the effects as hay fever, asthma, etc.
Limu Moui Can Put You Back in Balance
It would make sense, then, to limit the
production of IgE to normal levels. Fucoidan stimulates the production of natural killer (NK) cells in the immune system.
Think of these as wolves, and the extra IgE as deer. When the two are in balance, the environment is in balance. There are
exactly as many deer as an ecosystem can hold. If there are too many deer, everything suffers—just as you suffer when
you have too much IgE. The great thing about Limu Moui—and its very digestible key component fucoidan—is that
it’s a natural remedy. It’s food. Unlike synthetic supplements, you can’t overdose on it. It has no known
side effects. The people on Tonga and other Asiatic communities have been using it for
over 3,000 years. And because it is food, it is full of other vitamins and nutrients that will promote your health in other
ways. You may be seeking a treatment that will give you some allergy relief, but along the way you will notice that Limu Moui
will promote better health in general. When you use a product that is made of live, whole food ingredients, you will get the
full benefit of what fucoidan has to offer you.
Limu Moui is not a medicine or a drug.
While it can promote wellness, it is not a cure. Do not use this or any article as a substitute for medical advice. Consult
