Hi there. I am in search of some relief for my six year old who has allergies. Seasonal but this year have seemed to start extremely early and continue for a longer period of time. The typical circles under eyes, feels like there is a hair in his throat, always clearing it, slight runny nose and a bit tired. Ive tried otc allergy syrup and it used to work but hasn't so much ths time around. I'd like to try some natural remedies and will discuss with his pediatrician about this, but would like your advice on giving him bee pollen or honey, what kind? how much? Is it safe for kids? All the stuff! Thanks for your help...
Absolutely I can offer some advice. Bee pollen is very safe for kids provided you start him out with one or two granules and gradually increase the amount if he shows no symptoms of a reaction. We have many kids taking bee pollen and we are just about to start our one year old on it. In a perfect world, I'd have you give him raw honey (we sell a very good one in our web store) as well as the bee pollen as the two work very well together but also have strong, independent effects. Raw honey is extremely safe and can be given a teaspoon at a time. Let me know if you have any more questions.
