Bee Pollen and allergic asthma

by Ines
(Cape Town, South Africa)


My younger son was diagnosed with allergic asthma and has been taking a preventer (puffs) twice a day, everyday. He has an average height but quite (very) slim. After having a viral infection, his ears and lungs are still very bad. 3rd course of antibiotics and 2nd of steroids.

Do you think I can start giving him Bee Pollen? How much?

I read in some other website that we should avoid giving Bee Pollen to children, and NEVER give it to kids with allergic asthma...
What is your opinion?

Thank you!

Angela's comments:

I would tend to agree Ines. Kids with allergic asthma tend to be the ones who react badly to the pollens in bee pollen, simply because their immune systems 'overreact.'

That being said, my husband has allergic asthma and he takes bee pollen almost daily now. He had to be extremely careful when beginning with bee pollen and could only take one granule at a time. He slowly increased his dose over the spans of months. I would recommend you work with a Naturopathic Doctor or a Pharmacist if you choose to do this.

Bee healthy,

A relative of mine in Hyderabad,India who was suffering from ASTHMA for a long time started taking one 500 mg capsule of BEE POLLEN daily since 6 months and her wheezing stopped and she is feeing comfortable. When for 10 days, she did not take BEE POLLEN for want of stock, her wheezing returned.She again started and she is very confortable now without wheezing.Persons with Asthma can try and if they are comfortable, they can continue.
