Tips Getting Rid of Allergens

Do you suffer from allergies, like many others on a regular basis? You've tried all the medicines, ingredients, lotions, potions, you name it and these allergies are still waiting on you? An allergic reaction of the immune system to a substance, your body thinks it's bad for you.

 

When the body detects these foreign substances (called allergens), it releases a chemical in the blood (the most common of which is histamine), and these chemicals cause an allergic reaction you get; runny nose, watery eyes and skin rashes. The most serious allergy called anaphylaxis and can cause chest pain, shortness of breath, or even loss of consciousness.

Because the body will always react the same way to allergens every time, you cannot really do anything to getting rid of allergens.

 

There are some factors of allergens:-

  1. Allergens such as dust and pets.
  2. A diet low in omega-3 and 6 essential fatty acids.
  3. Excessive stress.
  4. Foods like soy, eggs, nuts, Diary products and wheat.
  5. Irritants such as certain soaps, household cleaning products, clothing or cosmetics.
  6. The immune system imbalance.


Here are  tips getting rid of allergens:-

  1. Have a healthy diet and avoid foods that can cause allergies, such as dairy products and soy.
  2. Remove the spices and coffee from your diet.
  3. Moisturize the skin every day to prevent dryness.
  4. Taking vitamin A, C and E, which are necessary for healthy skin.
  5. Apply topical evening primrose oil can relieve itching and dry skin.
  6. Consideration of omega-3 fish oil can alleviate the symptoms associated with this condition.
  7. Avoid activities that will make you sweat.
  8. Practice relaxation techniques to reduce stress.

Our Story

We never thought we would be making laundry detergent.  But like a lot of things in life, necessity is the mother of invention.   After my daughter was born, I fell in love with two things- my gorgeous baby and her gorgeous cloth diapers.  However, my little one has eczema that was only made worse by the “baby” laundry detergent with it’s too-strong odor and harsh chemicals.  I couldn’t wash my diapers in the stuff- nor did I want to- but I couldn’t find ANYTHING in the grocery store that didn’t cause my diapers to leak or  ( unbelievably) stink even worse!  Not to mention the negative ecological impact all those chemicals had on our environment! SO, as we all do I went online to purchase the premier cloth diaper detergent.  I was so excited to use their products! Until,that is, I read the ingredients. Half of the label was vague, industrial, chemical sounding words that frankly- sounded just like the detergent I was running away from.  When I contacted the companies, they refused to tell me what exactly was in their products.  I am all for protecting your product’s formula- but this is my baby! What touches her more than her cloth diaper! I needed to know what was in the product I was buying.  I was at an impasse.  I had REALLY stinky diapers and a baby whose skin was not too happy about the detergent we were using.  I had a decision to make: Give up cloth diapering or make my own detergent.  I chose the latter.  After months of research and lots of laundry, I came up with a concoction that is safe for my babies tender skin, safe for my cloth diapers, and ecologically friendly.  I began sharing the detergents with friends, family, and other cloth diapering Mamas. They all raved about how clean their diapers and clothes were and encouraged me to go into business.  Opportunity knocks only so many times before it moves on to someone who will listen, so I decided to listen to all my laundry detergent lovers.  With the help of my family and tester/snuggler extraordinaire, Ruby Grace, Ruby Moon Natural Laundry was born.  Look at that gorgeous baby! I can't think of a better reason to make our families and the Earth a little healthier!
