  1. Thank you, Dr. Borten for this comprehensive and valuable video on dealing with allergies. I look forward to trying out several of these to see if they can help with my seasonal and dust mite allergies.

    1. You’re welcome, Melissa! I hope it helps!

  2. Please subtitle or add captions to your videos so they are accessible 🙁

    1. Thanks for the reminder, Molly! We’ll definitely start doing that.

  3. Thank you so much for all the information! I was wondering if these remedies would be ok for children. I’ve been trying to find my 7 year old relief naturally but she’s suffering quite a bit and I refuse to go to over the counter meds. Thank you!

    1. Absolutely. The Bio-Allers products are safe for kids, and so are probiotics (I give my kids Yum Yum Dophilus), acupuncture, nettles tea, a supplement called D-Hist Jr. (which contains several of the supplements I mentioned), Antronex, and the lifestyle recommendations, like washing hair & staying hydrated.

  4. Dr. Borten, Time with you is always time well invested. Lots of information in brief form. Much appreciated, as always.

    Glad learn about and look forward to sharing the nasal oil I just discovered via this video.

    I enjoy being your student to help others…glad I do not have allergies. But I received my third variety of Muscle Melt (oil, patches and now balm) this week and applied after working in my yard then a friends yard yesterday.

    Thank you for learning then sharing; creating and sharing.

    1. Thank you, Susan, and you’re very welcome.

  5. I have a friend I’m sending the link to, but Spanish is her first language and I’m afraid she will miss a lot of your suggestions in frustration. Is there a chance to get a transcript? Someone else wrote in about subtitles, which would be great, too.

    1. I will ask our web developer about it, though I’m not sure it’s something that can happen soon – we just may not have the resources for it. I can review for you, though, some of the things I mentioned:
      – underlying weak digestion – improve digestion by eating well, eating slowly, avoiding foods you’re sensitive to, reduce sugar and dairy consumption; try probiotics
      – some supplements that some people find useful (ask your doctor first) include: zinc, vitamin B5, quercetin, n-acetyl cysteine, nettles (capsules or tea), Antronex (made by Standard Process), homeopathic remedies of specific allergens such as those made by Bio Allers
      – wash hair before bed if you’ve been outside and have pollen allergies
      – stay hydrated
      – exercise
