Pollens, Sinus Congestion

Re: Allergy Treatment with Marie Herrell

In the spring of 1994, after having moved to Brampton, Ontario, I developed a severe allergy to tree pollen. Allergy testing showed I was allergic to approximately 95% of the trees in my physical area.

Each spring from 1994 to 2002, I took a combination of: allergy shots, over-the-counter allergy pills, nasal spray, and eye drops. My symptoms would begin in late March and continue into the early summer; although somewhat alleviated by the medication, the symptoms continued to be a severe runny nose, scratchy eyes, and general lethargy. Sleeping was difficult as my breathing was not clear due to congested sinuses at night.

In the spring of 2002, the allergy season had started, and for several weeks I had been using allergy pills, nasal spray and eye drops. On April 26, 2002, I visited Marie Herrell for an allergy treatment session. By the end of the session, my sinuses had cleared and I could breathe freely. Since that session, I have not found it necessary to utilize any of the medications to alleviate symptoms associated with a tree pollen allergy.

Marie’s treatment for allergies was non-intrusive and straightforward, and, although, it would be considered an “alternative therapy”, has proven to be far more effective than any other method of treatment I have been exposed to.
