June Newsletter- Allergy Strategies & News from Marge

Notes from Marge      

Here we are at the doorstep of summer.  Isn’t it fantastic to see all the trees in bloom and the seasonal flowers popping?  The lilacs and wisteria are beautiful.  Unfortunately, my eyes are the barometer of too many things blooming at the same time.  People cutting the grass for the first time reminds me to close the windows and turn on the air conditioning, especially in the car.  I’ve written a short article that you can read further on in this newsletter about this very subject with idea to help with allergy symptoms.

    We have decided to try Summer Hours.  Our front desk or store hours, where someone answers the phone, will be Tuesday through Friday from 11am to 4pm.  Appointments for Muscle Testing, Facials and Detox Foot Baths will be Tuesday through Friday 9:30am to 5:30pm.  The Saturday Facials still remain from 10am to 2pm by appointment only.  You can always request your appointment online through our website at http://www.professional-nutrition-services.com

    It may be time for more of you to get muscle tested as the June weather brings many changes to the body.  Many are complaining of being tired.  That happens as your blood thins out for the warm weather and the nutrient content within your bloodstream changes.  Tiredness, lethargy, dark circles under your eyes and sometimes headaches occur.  This is not the time of year to sleep in.  It is the time to be out and about partying and picnicking with friends and relatives.  It is the time to plant your flowers and spruce up your surroundings.  It is the time for long walks in the park and neighborhoods.  I could go on and on!

    June is our month of “Health Challenges” as you will see by our next window banner.  If you or someone you know has a “Health Challenge” that is not being helped by traditional medicine or their medicine is causing major side effects, please suggest trying something different.  Tell them to give us a try for 3 months and remind them “what do you have to lose?”  A lot of times the problems disappear!  We love reducing those nasty side effects to something more livable.  Every part of your body requires fuel.  If any area has a deficit, then other nutrients share the burden to take up the slack to allow you to function as close to normal as possible.  This constant sharing is what manifests into other intolerable symptoms that push more medications and start the cycle all over again.  Years of this and you will see many medications filling up the shelves of your medicine cabinet.  They can be helped or at least reduced if you know what and how to use natural supplements.  It has been my passion since the early 80’s to help people feel the best they can.  Some of you have to really think back to the original reasons you first came to see me.

    One last thing!

    Weather such as sun and dry air can cause havoc on your skin.  Be sure you have a gentle exfoliating cleanser like our AHA/BHA skincare cleanser that you can use several times a week during the summer as the perspiration causes the dirt to stick to your skin.  Keep your skin hydrated with a moisturizer and REMEMBER to use your Sunscreen.  Check out our June special designed to help meet your summer needs.

Strategies in Dealing with your Allergies

by Marge Pickering-Picone

Just like experts predicted, this is one of the worst allergy seasons here in the northeast. I truly feel your pain!  This spring reminds me that this is one of the primary reasons I started this practice. As I am writing this newsletter, my eyes are both itching and watering. Years ago, I recall the way my head would throb on humid days and my ears would plug up.  The sneezing fits were awful, not to mention embarrassing when in public places.  This is when I would gather my coupons and purchase all the extra strength Allerest (the only kind that worked for me) the pharmacies had to offer.  I went through boxes of those pills as well as aloe coated tissues attempting to feel normal again. Unfortunately, I was completely overcome with fatigue and felt worn out on a regular basis. 
Here are some changes I made that helped:
1. Getting rid of feather pillows or down comforters. The feathers irritate the situation. 
2. Drinking significantly more water daily to flush the congestion.
3. Closing the windows and running the air conditioning.  That is both in the car and at home.
4. Keeping my animals brushed.   Every day!
5. Placing ice cold washcloths over my eyes. It helped keep the swelling down.
6. Putting away wool clothing, coats or blankets as they are another irritant. 
I was in such misery that I would have tried anything to make it go away and I did. Back then, the only solution they offered was surgery. In attempt to find relief, they purposely broke my nose and instead of using a bridge, they replaced it with cartilage. Today, my glasses have to be light weight due to my sensitivity. Because I did not wear glasses back then, I never guessed it would be a concern.  Boy was that a mistake!  

After all that agony, finally a friend mentioned that I should see this person about using supplements instead of all those pharmaceuticals. I finally gave in and went to see him. Within three months I felt so much better!  Here is a pic of me with one of my all-time favorite natural products, L-Histidine.


The last 30 years has been quite a journey! I am so thankful to have met my mentor who started me on this path of natural remedies.  Having energy and being healthy is what I want for everyone I meet.  Each person has their own unique health challenge. Invite friends, family and co-workers in and have them challenge me to reduce their symptoms and help them find relief.  I love to solve health problems!  I search, listen and apply over 50,000 hours of study to come up with a plan to help you “Feel Great”.   Give me 3 months and 3 visits to help you find relief!
