I live pretty green and organic, but I have allergies BADLY, itchy throat, eyes, and nose. I knew there was something natural out there I could take...Than I came across Raw honey, found many forums saying any where from 1-6 tbs per day!! I just started on raw honey for my allergies, like litterly 20 min ago, I had 1tbs I was going to have another, but it's too sweet, lol!! so whats the serving size for allergies?? and if you happen to know how long I need to take for that would help too!! TIA :/

You need to continue taking it, like you would allergy medicine, unfortunately.  If you like hot tea, that is a good way I've found to take it quickly without it being so sweet, plus the hot tea helps my sinuses. I've done 2-3 tbs per day.

i put local honey in my tea at least 2x a day, (bee ppl live right around the corner too). But I am not sure it's helping...my allergies must be pretty bad if I am still stuffy, sneezy, watery eyes....But I have heard it helps.

The honey helps your immune system like a vaccine for your allergies if you will.....contains the same things your allergic to but in a less "toxic' dose......finding a natural histamine will help w/ your symptoms.

I have allergies and get dry throat all of the time. I use this thing called Everyday Throat spray and keep it in my purse, it's small and it taste good. A friend of told me because it has colloidal silver it kills bacteria in the mouth (:

We take Natures Sunshine products for all our health issues. WE used to have terrible allergies but have found some things that have helped tremendously. You can see the products here:   http://mynsp.com/naturallyhealthybody

You can also take bee pollen.  Your local honey farmer should have some.  Sprinkle it on oatmeal or put it in gel caps.  My farmer said honey comb is better for allergies than just honey.
