Artemis Allergy Treatment Program is intended mostly for people suffering from seasonal allergies or yearlong allergies to pollens, animals, mold, dust, grasses, trees, hay fever. Most common symptoms are congestion, sneezing, itchy water eyes, coughing, mucous, wheezing, skin rash, redness. This program is less for food allergies, eczema, and asthma. With the support of an acupuncturist, homeopath, or other one on one holistic health practitioner, this program can also be used for those conditions. In general, ideally you will be under the care of an acupuncturist or other holistic health care practitioner; however, the program is designed for you to be able to do on your own in case you do not have access to a practitioner. The program and herbs can be used to resolve a chronic condition since childhood or one that has emerged in recent years. It can be used by people who want to reduce or eliminate dependence on allopathic allergy relief medications or by people who are used to using all natural protocols. Allergies may be reduced or resolved completely with this program. Overall health and wellness will improve. There are no negative side effects from the products or program. It is a very simple but profound program that can drastically improve health and quality of life.

How to take your herbs if you do not have a practitioner picking them for you:

Some people just take Lucidia as needed for allergy relief and this is sufficient. They may start with higher and more frequent doses in the beginning, and after the first few days, take 2 capsules once or twice per day. For severe symptoms, start with 3 capsules every 3 hours for the first few days or even for the first season of use. Reduce to two capsules every 4 hours or as needed. Because Lucidia is cleansing and fortifying the blood and immune system, you want to initially take more, and over time you will need less. This indicates the therapeutic effect of the plants. You are actually taking a big toll off your body by taking Lucidia. For this reason, it is very beneficial to use Lucidia if it gives you allergy relief instead of a drug that suppresses symptoms and adds more work to the detoxifying systems of the body. If you are used to using drugs, it is nice if you can transition to Lucidia, and save those big guns for big extreme occasions, such as staying at a friend’s house with cats. The drugs will be more effective because they are not used on a daily basis. Keep in mind that it is also possible that you will no longer need the over-the-counter drugs and Lucidia or the 5 Baseline formulas will be sufficient.

If you want to choose a Baseline Formula (Five Element) for yourself to address underlying imbalances that may be contributing to your allergies, choose one of the formulas based on your symptoms and constitution, and take your herbs as follows.

1
Baseline Formula: 2 times per day without food.
2
Lucidia: 2 capsules as needed when allergy symptoms are present or once daily for immune support. Take a few days break every 4 weeks. After allergy season, either stop, or check in with an acupuncturist. There are 5 exquisite formulas from which you can choose to address underlying imbalances. See if one could be helpful to you.

Lucidia

This is our house formula. It is used as an antihistamine for immediate relief from allergy symptoms without side effects. It can be taken alone, or in addition to a baseline formula that is addressing underlying imbalances.

Jia Wei Xiao Yao Wan Free and Easy Wanderer Plus

This is one of the most common baseline formulas in my treatment of allergies. It is gentle and regulating and improves liver function. It moves liver qi, builds blood, and tonifies spleen qi. It can be taken on and off for a long time. People use this formula for stress, fatigue, PMS, frustration, irritability, abdominal bloating, mild depression, mild anemia, mild insomnia (its not a sedative at all), and to gently cleanse the liver. It is restorative and is very good for daily stress and hormone regulation. Men and women can use this formula. This formula helps allergies by improving the cleansing function of the liver and by strengthening the nervous system. If you are overwhelmed, stressed, irritable, and slightly depressed, this formula can help.

Si Wu Wan Four Substances Teapills

This is a blood building formula. It is most commonly thought of for women but can be used by men as well who are blood deficient in Chinese Medical Diagnosis. It is moistening, beautifying, and enriches the blood. It helps regulate menstruation, moistens skin, hair and nails, slims the waistline, supports thyroid, improves circulation, alleviates muscle aches due to blood deficiency, and softens the eyes. It is very good for the liver and kidneys. This formula helps with allergies by regulating hormones and by fortifying and cleansing the blood. If you are blood deficient or if your blood is weak (from stress, not enough sleep, blood loss, or dietary reasons), allergens can easily enter the blood stream and cause havoc. This formula makes the blood rich, clean, and strong, allergens do not enter the bloodstream.

Tian Wang Bu Xin Wan Emperor's Teapills

I love the name of this formula. It indicates that the formula was divinely inspired by the Heavenly Emperor. It is called “Emperor of Heaven’s Special Pill to Tonify the Heart”. This formula is baseline, and can be used long term. Although it can be very helpful in treating anxiety and insomnia, it is not a sedative. The usual symptoms may be any of the following: insomnia or poor and restless sleep, palpitations, anxiety, irritability, menopause, night sweats or hot flashes, nocturnal emissions, chest constriction, shortness of breath, fatigue, inability to think or concentrate, forgetfulness, excessive thinking or worry, dry stool. Possibly sores of the mouth and tongue. The tongue is red and has little coating. This formula can help allergies in the long term by balancing hormones, strengthening kidneys and adrenals, and soothing the aspect of the nervous system that is regulated by the heart and kidneys (the previous formulas addressed the aspects of the nervous system through the liver and kidneys).

Long Dan Xie Gan Wan The Snake and The Dragon Teapills

This formula is a very strong formula and is not intended for long term use (the others are all used traditionally for longevity). It can be used from time to time for up to a week at a time unless you are under the care of an acupuncturist or Chinese herbalist. It is not toxic, only very cold in quality and taken for too long or for the wrong presentation, can weaken digestion. It is a very nice formula to clear heat and toxins from the liver through the urine. The tongue presentation for this formula is red tongue body or edges, maybe pointy tip, with a whitish or yellowish coat on it. When taken appropriately, this formula is very calming. It can clear red itchy rashes, genital infections, yeast infections, herpes out breaks, red eyes, high blood pressure, and anxiety or irritablility. It will also help with nervous overeating if you have a diagnosis of damp heat in the liver/gallbladder. If you have been given this diagnosis from an acupuncturist, I also recommend you to look at Dr. Hulda Clark’s gallbladder cleanse. If it looks right for you, plan a date to do it and it can really help with allergies and other chronic health concerns.

Tian Ma Gou Teng Yin

This formula anchors yang and extinguishes wind in the liver. It brings energy down and anchors it in the kidneys. If you have irritability, hot temper, hot ears, inflamed sinuses, high blood pressure, or are prone to headaches or migraines, this formula can be used. This rising energy is blowing out the top of your head, leaving the kidneys empty. When you anchor the energy with this formula and with acupuncture, meditation, breathwork, you strengthen the kidneys and adrenals, and feel calmer and more grounded. I use this as the baseline formula for allergies whenever the rising energy is present—sinus pain or headaches, rash in the upper body, anxiety, high blood sugar, high blood pressure, irritability. It helps with allergies because it reduces constriction of the blood vessels in the head, and strengthens the nervous system through the liver and kidneys.
