H Hay Fever – Head Lice


Medical Definition
Hay fever is an allergic reaction to airborne pollen from trees, grasses and other plants characterised by inflammation of the membrane lining the nose and sometimes the conjunctiva.

There are approximately 12 million sufferers of hay fever in the UK and more than 75 million in the USA. Symptoms vary from mild discomfort to those that are so severe that the sufferer cannot even go outdoors. One of the most recent peer reviewed studies that I have performed was looking at hay fever prevention and treatment with allicin powder.

TreatmentA daily dose of just 360mg of allicin powder per day can dramatically reduce the number of hay fever attacks that sufferers are likely to experience.

This really is quite amazing. For the first time ever I have been able to go about my normal routine without sneezing and constantly feeling blocked up. This allicin product is definitely the best thing I have ever used for treating my hay fever. Thanks ever so much.

Medical Definition
Lice are a form of insect parasite that live only on the hairy parts of the body, different varieties being closely adapted to certain areas and races, even to the extent of having specially shaped claws to cling to the hair of different races.

The eggs of the head louse are found around the nape of the neck as small grey nits attached to the hair about halfway along and these take about two weeks to hatch, so the treatment must be repeated after a fortnight as only the lice are killed.

Control of infections with head lice has traditionally been performed using conventional insecticides rotated to avoid the development of resistance. In certain parts of the world the selection of strains of lice that have developed resistance to one or more insecticides. These ”conventional” agents are also highly inflammable and rather toxic to the human body – their suitability for use on children is questionable. Faced with product claims that can no longer be wholly justified, an increasing number of consumers are experimenting with untested methods. A number of formulators have also decided to market products that are neither adequately tested for safety or efficacy nor are licensed for this application. Some materials used in this application are potentially toxic and, because many of the formulations are inappropriate, they may encourage the development of resistance to some of the potentially available alternative active substances.

TreatmentTake a normal scoop of your favourite shampoo and add 2000mg of allicin powder.
Mix thoroughly and then shampoo the hair as normal. Like a conditioner leave the shampoo on for a couple of minutes and then wash off and repeat again. This procedure should be repeated every day for a week. This will ensure that the eggs and nits are removed.
At the same time you must use all the normal measures recommended by Public Health experts. So please ensure that you treat everyone in the family and that you comb out thoroughly any shells or eggs or dead lice that may still be stuck to the hair. At the end of the week your child’s hair should be clean and nit free but it is probably worthwhile using this technique once or twice for the following two weeks to try to prevent a re-infestation as you can bet that somebody at school won’t be as thorough a you! We have used this regimen at home on both our daughters with great success.
