I am a firm believer in propolis.  Started taking it daily in May last year.  My allergies always freak out in Mid October.  They did not this past year.  I am sure that propolis played a major role.  I also am eating alot more honey than ever before so maybe it was a combination of the two.  I tried to get my wife to take it with me but she did not like the look of it.  Well, after she was all snotted up this past fall and I was not, she became a convert.

This is all new to me, but I am doing some research to see if this is a viable option for me or not. I had been told that consuming local honey would help w/ sinus problems. Does anyone know if this is true? grin

I suffered from severe allergies during the spring and fall here in the Piedmont! In the spring time the pollen turns everything yellow when plants and trees bloom.

I was taken several sinus medications and my system became immune to them. Last resort were bi-weekly shots. I talked with a local farmer and he recommended eating honey from a source within a 25 mile radius and "stopping the sinus medications!"

It works for me and I have been problem free since, that's why I'm here to learn about bees. I can't wait to receive my package of bees in May for the garden and honey for sinus relief.
