I recommend immune balancing supplement EpiCor. Helps reduce or mute unwanted aggressive immune response, which what an allergy reaction is. Allergies are simply your immune system over-responding to something that's really not a threat, like pollen or dust. That's why I don't agree with "needing all hands on deck" in the story above. You want all hands to take a rest and not over-respond. It's called immune balance. Aggressive immune response when needed (virus, bacteria) passive immune response when needed (allergy), and a mix of the two during immune-system challenges (stress, poor diet, etc.).
