Listening now! Thanks for these giveaways. I won a 'heart' basket and can't wait to get it! Hopefully I'll be lucky again :)

One of my fave homeopthic products for kids is Chestal honey cough syrup.

great timing, mod*mom- my sneezing is out of control!

By Blogger Naomi, at 4/03/2008 3:47 PM  

Great, this is fantastic!

By Anonymous Natural Allergy Relief, at 4/03/2008 9:32 PM  

Your blog has become my first daily read in the morning! Treating allergies is a very relevant topic to me and this podcast was very informative. The giveaway is great too!

By Blogger diana, at 4/04/2008 5:15 AM  

Very informative. I enjoyed listening.

By Blogger dcala, at 4/04/2008 5:46 AM  

As I mentioned in my comment over at the other site, that was good to listen to. I have never really persued a homeopathic solution before. I always hate to medicate my kids when allergy season rolls around and the idea that there are gentler methods of possibly controlling their seasonal allergies has my interest piqued. I really need to look into those options more closely.

Thanks for hosting another great giveaway.

ugh, thanks for reminding me that allergy season is almost upon us (we live up north). every year I wonder if I'm getting sick and it takes me a few days to realize it's spring allergies. mainly because I didn't develop them until college.

Thank you for working with Whole foods to get this give-away. I love whole foods but have to travel to get there. Well worth it. Thank you

By Blogger Tes283, at 4/22/2008 11:14 AM  

I've been experimenting with different homeopathic remedies for all sorts of ailments--some work surprisingly well, better than the far more expensive synthetic stuff. Our whole household is sniffling and sneezing and wheezing this time of year with allergies and/or asthma. This would be a great win!

By Blogger Greywolf73, at 4/22/2008 1:46 PM  

My allergies have gone crazy this year. Just last week I did some research on homeopathic remedies, as the other stuff totally doesn't work.

By Blogger Jessica, at 4/22/2008 2:05 PM  

Very interesting. I want to relay a lot of this info to my husband who is a big allergy sufferer.

By Blogger Jon & Sarah, at 4/22/2008 2:56 PM  

I wonder if some of these tips could help my son's ear infections? Wow. Thanks!

ashleyalexis[at]gmail[dot]com

By Blogger alexis, at 4/22/2008 3:04 PM  

Oh wow, this is great. We are an allergy ridden household. I have seasonal, cats and probably some others not yet ID'ed. My youngest daughter is allergic to milk, soy and eggs and will most likely follow me with everything else.

We are soon going to be in an allergy study at Children's Memorial hospital to find out why there are so many more food allergies happening.

How fantastic. What an amazing giveaway. I don't like to medicate my kids, so I usually just make them tough it out unless it is really awful. It's nice to have some alternative things to try.
