Everybody who takes blue-green algae has a story. This is mine.
I won’t say I never have a sniffle or a short bout of hay fever. but 18 years ago when I started eating blue-green algae, my poor immune system was shot and I was taking 6 allergy shots a week. Yes, SIX. Plus homeopathic drops, every antihistamine on the market, and who knows what other things prescribed by a doctor who was supposed to be the best allergy doctor in the state of Texas. In spite of all this, I was in a depressingly downward spiral with my allergies, and they were getting worse each year.
Severe allergies are due to an immune system response that has simply gone haywire. It’s normal and healthy to clear foreign particles or pollen from your nasal passages with a good sneeze — or even a series of them. But frequent, debilitating hay fever or other allergy symptoms, often resulting in a secondary infection of some sort, is not. Unfortunately, the more your immune system reacts to one or two allergens, the more likely it is to react to others. Until finally it goes AWOL and starts reacting to all kinds of things that aren’t allergens at all, including to yourself and your normal biological makeup. This is when you get into auto-immune territory — dangerous territory indeed!
Fortunately, I was not to that point yet when I was introduced to Simplexity Health’s Super Blue-Green Algae. When I learned it was simply a very pure, wildcrafted food (not a supplement or drug), in single-cell form that really built up the immune system, I decided to give it a try. Why not? A month’s supply for me at the time wasn’t that expensive, since I decided to take only one capsule of blue-green algae per day.
And that’s what I did. One capsule of blue-green algae a day.
Six months later my worst allergy season rolled around: August with its dreaded ragweed!! For years this had laid me low and I suffered and was sick for weeks on end, missing lots of work and generally feeling miserable. That year, O.M.G., I barely had any symptoms at all! I couldn’t believe it! I had cut way back on my shots months before because they weren’t helping, so there was nothing to explain the improvement in my allergies except the algae.
The next bad season arrived around mid-winter — Juniper/Cedar, most people’s worst allergy, and I didn’t feel a thing. Spring always brought several tree pollen allergies for me, but I sailed through it with few symptoms. And by the following August I had NO SYMPTOMS TO RAGWEED! A red letter day in my life and my health.
Naturally, I have kept blue-green algae in my life ever since as one of my dietary mainstays. I take other things too, but I would never be without my algae. The body recognizes it as whole food, not a manmade supplement, so responds accordingly. It’s like the difference between the Vitamin C in an orange and a capsule — your body knows exactly how to handle the orange and absorb the C; but it has to figure out the capsule and its contents, no matter how “natural” or organic (and unfortunately discards up to 90% of the vitamin C itself because it simply doesn’t “recognize” it).
And, by the way, every person in my household eats blue-green algae too, be they dog, cat, chicken, horse or human. I have two healthy horses who the vets say shouldn’t even still be alive, and one dog who should have arthritis build-up in his shoulders but has no sign of it. I attribute all of this to the algae.
If you suffer from allergies or feel like you have a poor immune system, you might give blue-green algae a try. You can read all about it HERE and can order it on my website HERE. Try starting with a package of the “Essentials.” I hope it works for you as well as it always has for me!
