Honey Shots For Children
This was sent to us by Dana Black a writer, mother and great style maven from Northern California. Her tribe includes Dakota now in College, Indigo, and little Ilira.
Conventional allergy shots, also known as subcutaneous immunotherapy, work to target the cause of allergies by injection of known allergens. Typical allergens include pollen, dust, mold and pet dander. The shots work like a vaccine and help stimulate the immune system to develop infection fighting antibodies. Over time the body develops a resistance and tolerance to allergies.
Another natural and community based approach to this same theory is by ingesting a daily teaspoon of local, raw and unfiltered honey! Raw local honey will include all pollen, dust and molds that bother you daily. Also, as your immediate environment changes around you, so shall the honey! In addition, in order for the honey to keep its raw state, do not heat over 92-118 degrees F. Over the past year I have been able to purchase raw unfiltered honey from local apiaries from my local neighborhood store and farmers market. In fact, I have honey that has been raised only a mile away from me. As you read this, I am fighting off my allergies with a lovely mug of warm water, honey and lemon. Ahhhh.
