Juice Away Your Allergies with Parsley and Raw Local Honey

Parsley Allergy Warrior Juice

Parsley Allergy Warrior Juice

We are in the thick of allergy season, and I am always looking for natural “drug-free” remedies. I struck the JACKPOT when I discovered that parsley juice can alleviate the symptoms of air borne allergies. I got this tip from HEINERMAN’S ENCYCLOPEDIA OF HEALING JUICES where John Heinerman shares examples of parsley juice curing sneezing, itchy and watery eyes, and even asthma!

I suffer from chronic hay fever, so I tested this on myself, and it really works! For the best results, drink a glass of parsley juice every day for 3 weeks. Then once your symptoms have reduced, drink a glass three times a week, and then drink once a week to maintain the results.

Parsley juice is a wonderful all-round health promoting food. The rich mineral salts help to neutralize acids in the body, purify and alkalize the blood, tissues, and organs, detoxify the skin, assist with the elimination of heavy metals like mercury, help with urinary tract health, bladder infections, and flush out the kidneys.

Parsley is also loaded with nutrients. Just two tablespoons of parsley contains significant vitamins A, C, and K which help to boost the immune system, fight infection, repair wounds, and regenerate cells. Parsley also helps to maintain healthy bones, teeth and skin; assist with the proper functioning of the respiratory, urinary, intestinal, and digestive tracts; and well as the strengthening the nervous system and cardiovascular system.

Parsley also contains powerful anti-inflammatory agents and antioxidants, such as luteolin, a flavonoid that helps to neutralize free radicals. The myristicin contained in parsley can also inhibit tumor formation, making it a great for combating cancer.

I love this juice blend as it is slightly sweet and refreshing. Parsley can be quite bitter, so it pairs well with sweet apples and carrots. I like to keep it alkalizing and add cucumbers, lemons, and limes. For vegans, use a few drops of the Nu Naturals Alcohol-Free Lemon Stevia to take the edge off the tartness.

Adding raw local honey makes this juice a potent allergy warrior. The bees in your local area have been pollinating on the very agents that are irritating your system. By ingesting a teaspoon a day, or rubbing it on your eye lids and underneath your eyes, it is incredibly powerful. I do this every year and it works a treat!

*PLEASE NOTE: Large amount of parsley should NOT be consumed by pregnant women. The oils, (apiol and myristicin) can stimulate uterine contractions, bringing on a menstrual period, which can cause a miscarriage or premature labor. Myristicin can cross the placenta and can increase the heartbeat in a fetus, as well as interfering with the hemoglobin in a baby’s blood. It can also cause hallucinations, giddiness, loss of balance, kidney damage, and seizures in pregnant women.

    Love this! My most common green juice has parsley, lemon, cucumber, and ginger in it – no wonder my allergies haven’t been so bad. ;-)

    I’m allergic to citrus but… I love, LOVE parsley in my juices. Not crazy about cucumber either but I guess I can learn to love it. ;-) Thanks for the recipe!

    @Amanda, I find cucumber juice to be incredibly refreshing. I’m not a huge fan of it raw either, but I do love it juiced.

    When my younger daughter got the diagnosis of atipycal autism one year ago, I started learning about the influence of diet in autistic symptoms. Stoped using things with chemicals or anything I do not understand what it is. And started using honey instead of cane sugar (I stoped using white sugar much longer ago). I also started buying a few organic vegetables and other far from Fukushima.

    This year I started with asma in march, but it suddenly it stopped when most allergic people in Tokyo are feeling worse. I got cured just in time. And I am not even using honey from this area. I buy canadian honey. Japanese honey would not specify the part of Japan, so it could be close to Fukushima. Honey from China could have many chemicals as most foods from that countrie (learned this from TV. I am not sure, but just in case).

    Honey works and organic food too.

    Could this be made in a blender as well? I don’t have a food processor, but I have HORRIBLE year-round allergies and am willing to try anything — I’ve even had sinus surgery with no luck :(

    Allison Reply:

    @Allison, Sorry, it’s a juicer that I don’t have lol

    [Reply]

    The Blender Girl Reply:

    @Allison, Yes, blend everything in your blender and then strain. You will have to tweak the flavours a bit. But it still works!

    [Reply]

    Amy Green Reply:

    @Allison, I would suggest juicing only because the concentration will be stronger. You could try smoothies, though and see how it works.

    I have this juicer and it’s relatively inexpensive and works really well.

    Also – do you use a neti pot? It has kept me from having sinus infections and helps clear up my allergies.

    @Amy Green, Thanks Amy! Great suggestions!

    Shots might seem like an unusual way to treat allergies, but they’re effective at decreasing sensitivity to triggers. The substances in the shots are chosen according to the allergens identified from a person’s medical history and by the allergist during the initial testing. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) oversees the standards used in preparing the materials for allergy shots given in the United States.
