Kiss the Sniffles Good-Bye

Need another reason to kiss your man? We have one to pull you through the upcoming allergy season.

A passionate kiss is probably the last thing on your mind when allergies make you (or your partner) a sneezy wreck. But one study suggests that a make-out session might be good medicine. Researchers at a Japanese hospital had 24 patients with minor seasonal allergies kiss their lovers or spouses for 30 minutes while listening to music. Tests showed that lip-locking not only relaxed them (imagine that!) but also reduced production of histamine, the body chemical that causes allergic reactions.

So should you skip the pills and smooch instead? Probably not. You’re better off using meds and avoiding triggers like pollen and animals, says Jeffrey M. Factor, MD, an allergist and immunologist with the Connecticut Asthma and Allergy Center (he was not involved in the study).

But feel free to pop an antihistamine and pucker up anyway. After all, you’re doing it in the name of science, right?

Well, Baby Boomers…as you probably already guessed..I vote for the kissing! KISSING is a lost art! Do it as much as you can!

Throw away those pharmaceuticals though!

I have not had an allergy attack since I started drinking MONA VIE! An asthma attack…or even a migraine!

I used to get migraines for a month at a time…ever since I was a 4 years old. Last year I had a migraine for 3 MONTHS straight…I thought I was going to lose my mind!

Baby Boomers…eat right and drink Mona Vie, which has the Asci Berry in it! The way to better health and longer life is thru good nutrition!
