Beat allergy season before it starts

In just a few weeks, the snow will melt -- if it hasn't already -- and the first signs of spring will start to poke through.

The grass will turn green... the flowers will bloom... and millions of Americans will step outside to inhale the fresh spring air... and immediately start sneezing.

Yes, allergy season is about to start.

Some folks stock up on Kleenex and spend the next few months blowing their noses.

Others spend a small fortune on allergy meds, including pills that can make you so drowsy and unfocused that you'd almost rather deal with the sniffling and sneezing.

Well, my friend, it's time to toss out the meds and set aside those tissues, because there IS a way to beat allergies safely and effectively -- by arming your own immune system.

And now, the latest mainstream research even BACKS a version of the method I've used with great success here at the Stengler Center for Integrative Medicine.

The only downside?

The version they use takes much longer to kick in.

It's called immunotherapy, a.k.a. "allergy shots." It involves getting injections of grass pollen, an exposure that prompts your immune system to "learn" and stop reacting to it when you're outside.

Like I said, there's a downside, and it's a pretty big one: The study finds you need THREE YEARS of treatment before you see any results.

That's still a win -- because after three years, the benefits can last a LIFETIME.

But there's also another downside that the study doesn't really look at.

If you choose the shots, you have to visit the doctor regularly -- once or twice a month -- and those injections can come with a dose of chemical preservatives that you don't want in your body.

If I were an Olympic judge, I'd give this a 10 for concept but only a 3 for execution.

There's a much better way that works safely, effectively, and QUICKLY ... and with no shots... no regular visits to a doctor's office... and no chemical preservatives.

It's called isopathy, or homeopathic doses of common allergens that can quickly desensitize your immune system so that you no longer react. For example, if you're allergic to ragweed, you can desensitize your immune system with homeopathic ragweed.

Instead of injections, you can get these remedies via drops, taken three times a day -- and instead of waiting years for results, most people improve within a single month.

Get started today, and you might look forward to the start of spring instead of dreading it.
