It never fails, many of us suffer from seasonal or environmental allergies in the Spring & the Fall.
Before I learned about this program, I was once taking 2 different allergy medications and required allergy shots. Even with this regiment, I still had year round asthma & often needed multiple asthma meds including routine breathing treatments (yuck!).

There appears to be a surprising correlation between symptoms of upper respiratory congestion and sinus discomfort to poor elimination in the lower intestines.

Couple this with a diet culture so entrenched in sweets, breads, baked goods, chips, and snacks that are the favorite foods of the Candida organisms.
