Allergy casualty? The allergy cavalry to the rescue

Ahhhh-choo! Ahhhh-choo! Sniffle, sniffle. Tissue … repeat. It is that time of year. Do you remember when people came to Arizona to escape allergies? With the influx of people came the influx of plants, and the rest is history. In 2011, the Huffington Post website announced that Phoenix and Las Vegas were newly crowned as the allergy capitals of the country.

This year, allergies will be especially bad due to all the rain, the freeze and the haboobs. Rain will bring mold and mildew, dust is everywhere and the haboobs will disperse spores, which will cause valley fever in many of us, including our furry friends. Additionally, a bad fire season is being predicted, which will shower more toxins on us.

My husband and I never had allergies until we moved to Arizona. Since then, our doctor would give us a prescription for Flonase® twice a year. I was never informed that Flonase is a steroid until I discovered my secret allergy cure 18 months ago. Both my husband and I would miss work and spend days in bed feeling miserable with flu-like symptoms — sneezing, coughing, sore throats, hoarse voices and no energy. We learned to keep our windows shut, even though we wanted them open. And so the allergy story goes — year after year for millions of Americans.

Why do some people suffer from allergies, while others do not? It has to do with the health of our immune systems, which become overtaxed. Most of us have our vices — whether it be alcohol, smoking, sweets — but with just everyday living, breathing in toxins and eating foods laden and sprayed with pesticides and chemicals, it is no wonder so many people have allergies. Is there something that could help the immune system? There sure is, and most people have never heard of it. It is called beta glucan.

My husband and I recently returned from a vacation with a group of 10 people. All of us have been taking beta glucan for one-and-a-half years, and not one of us has been sick since. Many in our group travel frequently, and often those plane trips are the “gotchas” of illness. So how is it that during one of the worst flu seasons ever, no one got sick? Coincidence? I think not.

What is beta glucan?

Beta glucan is a polysaccharide with a long history as an immunomodulator. People who take it are calling it life changing. I could go on and on about how beta glucan supports the immune system and has helped people overcome cancer, allergies, high blood pressure, HIV/AIDS, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes and more. It is found naturally in seaweed, Japanese mushrooms, grains and the walls of baker’s yeast. One study shows that the insoluble yeast-derived beta glucan has superior ability to modulate the immune system. Not all beta glucan is created equally. Buyer beware — many commercial brands are worthless because the manufacturers buy inferior quality beta glucan, which shows little, if any, immune response improvement.

You are among the first people in the U.S. to read about this amazing compound. Yet beta glucan is the number one immunomodulator on the planet. It has been studied for more than 50 years, with more than 11,000 studies from Harvard, Baylor, Tulane and other prestigious universities posted on Most people, including traditional doctors, have never heard of beta glucan. Many people ask: “Why haven’t I heard of this before if it is so great?” One reason could be that 10 years ago one capsule cost $200.

Beta glucans are significant because they bind to the CR3 receptor of neutrophil cells, which are the most abundant white blood cells. These cells are now activated to see “non-self” cells. Essentially, after taking beta glucan, trillions more fighter cells are activated within the body, which is why people call it a life-changing and miraculous product.

Beta glucan has been licensed in other countries for use as a drug to fight cancer. Yet, it is so safe that baby formula manufacturers in other countries add it to their formula. Also, beta glucan does not interfere with prescription medications. The FDA gives beta glucan the “generally regarded as safe” (GRAS) rating.


“I have severe allergies. I am a photographer. I was hired to take macro (close up) shots of fungus growing on different electronic parts. The company that hired me grows mold on electronic parts to show resistance, or how susceptible it is to mold. One thing I can always tell when I walk into someone’s house is if they have mold in the house. I have immediate symptoms, like itchiness in my throat and my chest tightens up a lot. So here I am in a room filled with mold, and I am in the face of the mold taking close-up pictures and not having my usual symptoms. Another thing I have noticed over time is that my hip joints do not hurt anymore, and my wife loves it that my snoring has stopped. I love this stuff.” — Tim P., Chicago, Ill.

“My son was sent home from school due to ringworm on his head. Four of his classmates had ringworm and were on antibiotics, which took 13 weeks to work. My son never took antibiotics. I decided to put him on the number-one beta glucan in the world. It took two days for it to work. We have pictures, too. It never returned.” — Uriel J., California

“I am a healthy guy, and want to stay that way. I do get seasonal allergies, but I have not had any allergies, nor have I had to take any allergy meds since starting beta glucan. I need three hours less sleep a night. I did the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim hike in one day with five busloads of other people. Several of my West Point classmates flew out for the event. I beat them by one-and-one-half hours. The only difference was that I was taking beta glucan. I have not been sick in two years. It will always be a permanent part of my health regimen.” — Eric W., Phoenix, Ariz.
