Got allergies?

Try some Local Honey.
For some, Local Honey is thought to have a beneficial affect on allergy sufferers. Here’s the reasoning behind that assumption. The local honeybees, the bees that live and harvest pollen and nectar in your own neighborhood, are collecting the exact same kind of pollen grains that you would be most allergic to. Small amounts of this same pollen (and other possible local allergens associated with flowers) will be found in the honey these bees make. It may seem odd that straight exposure to pollen often triggers allergies but that exposure to pollen in the honey usually has the opposite effect. This is interesting, and a lot cheaper and less painful than allergy shots!
