Found a great Website
that talks about the connection between the liver and allergies.
As for me, its not so much pollens as it is mold, mildew, DUST MITES, animal dander etc........
I do not get the typical symptoms much (itching eyes, scratchy throat, etc...) I get more feel heavily sedated and also just plain horrible!
Extreme allergies are known to cause headaches and feelings of fullness in the head excessive drowsiness after eating sleepiness or, insomnia, ringing in the ears, recurrent Sinusitis and ear infections, Sore throat, Nausea and vomiting, Diarrhoea, Constipation, flatulence, Abdominal pain, CHRONIC FATIGUE, aching joints and muscles, binge eating, Anxiety attacks, Depression, tearfulness, unusually aggressive behaviour, apathy, Confusion, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, inability to concentrate... In such cases mechanisms other than the classic antigen-antibody response are almost certainly involved.
Among the many substances known to cause allergic reactions are dust, house dust mites, fur and feathers, tree and grass pollens, various plants, wool and other fabrics, nickel and other metals, gases and vapours given off by gas appliances, household cleaners, paints, solvents, and plastics, pesticide residues, non-stick coatings, various drugs, including penicillin, and of course many foods and food additives.
As for what to do,
Install a filter over bedroom air vents to prevent pet dander, dust, and molds from being blown in from other parts of the house through heating or air-conditioning ducts.
Use window shades or curtains that can be laundered or cleaned frequently, instead of heavy drapes.
Don’t hang sheets or clothing outdoors to dry, as pollens and molds can collect on them.
Wash bed linens in hot water (at least 130° Fahrenheit) and use your dryer's hottest setting to kill mites and control animal allergens.
Keep pets out of the bedroom to limit exposure to pet dander while sleeping.
Minimize dust and dust mites by choosing carpeting with low pile, or better yet, eliminating carpeting altogether.
Clean, cool dry air is best while sleeping. Keep central air-conditioning running at night or use window air-conditioning units. If air-conditioning is available, keep windows closed at night to avoid exposure to pollens.
Enclose pillows, mattresses, and box springs in zippered, air-tight casings to curtail mite activity.
Do not use a feather- or down-filled pillow.
Keep dust from accumulating by vacuuming floors and cleaning surfaces weekly.
Keep small knickknacks, books, and CDs inside cabinets or drawers so that they don't collect dust.
Replace synthetic pillows every 2 to 3 years.
Keep the number of houseplants to a minimum, as they promote mold growth.
Avoid smelling cut flowers, as the close contact can put you in touch with their pollen.
To reduce mold, store all firewood outside and eliminate straw and jute (a natural fiber like hemp or rattan) accessories from the home.
If carpeting is necessary, choose a type with a low pile...it offers fewer places for dust and allergens to hide and is easier to clean.
Keep dust from accumulating by vacuuming floors and cleaning wooden surfaces weekly.
Surfaces should be smooth, easy to clean, and free of objects that can collect dust.
Use a vacuum cleaner with a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter to collect dust and dust mites.
Electrostatic filters help remove airborne particles and some dust mites.
Have ducts in a forced-air heating system cleaned at least once a year.
Dust mites thrive in high humidity. Use a dehumidifier, if possible
Keep your pet out of the bedroom (and off the bed, the carpet, the furniture, your pillows).
Keep your pet outside as much as possible.
Brush your pet outside of the house to remove loose hair and other allergens.
Have someone else empty the litter box or clean the cage.
Regularly clean or replace any bedding or carpeting that is contaminated with animal dander.
Install an air cleaner (an air filtration system) in your house.
Have someone wash your pet weekly to cut down dander.
Electric and hot-water heating systems are preferred over forced warm-air systems because they don't disperse dust, mold, and pet dander throughout the house.
In addition to removing pollen and other allergens, central or room air-conditioners are also effective in controlling the humidity that makes dust mites and molds grow more quickly.
Evaporative coolers or "swamp coolers", popular in drier areas, are a source of mold and mold spores.
Avoid using fireplaces or wood-burning stoves, as they produce particles that can worsen allergies.
Install an air cleaner with a central electrostatic precipitator or high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter unit.
Replace central air/heat unit fiberglass filters monthly.
Install a dehumidifier to keep air dry and also reduce mold growth.
Put an herb garden on your windowsill instead of flowers to reduce airborne pollen.
Mold loves places where food is stored. Clean refrigerator bins and drip trays regularly.
Don't forget to vacuum behind your refrigerator, too, to prevent dust build-up.
Keep your pet out of the kitchen while you’re preparing food and eating, to minimize animal dander.
Keep windows closed when pollen counts are high.
Any other ideas about combating aleergies are greatly appreciated. I think ill put my gas mask back on now
