HayMax was started by Max Wiseberg, who had suffered from hayfever all his life.
He tried all available remedies for his hay fever with limited or no success, until coming across what later became HayMax. It was simple and it worked!
After a couple of years using it successfully, Max had the time to do some research. Very simply, he discovered that in hayfever sufferers pollen entering the body through the nose triggers a reaction. The body's reaction is to produce histamines. Histamines are the things which, when you've got too much of them, cause the runny nose, the sneezing, the sore and itching eyes and ears and all the other things Hayfever sufferers know so well. He also found out that histamines are the things in our brains which help to keep us alert, attentive and awake. Suddenly it became clear why anti-histamines can make us drowsy, or affect our performance.
Each person has their own level of pollen they can cope with before they start to react. So Max, a hayfever sufferer, didn't need much pollen to make him sneeze. And someone who is not a hayfever sufferer could end up sneezing if you blew a large amount of pollen up their nose. So if Max could reduce the amount of pollen entering the nose, his hayfever might not trouble him so much. It all made sense!
He consulted qualified aromatherapists to ensure the essential oils used would have the best chance of improving the product without presenting any possible harm. As a result of his research, his consultations and experimentation, he produced a completely natural balm which worked as an effective pollen barrier.
He conducted limited trials, and all respondents say HayMax works.
How It Works:
It is very simple. HayMax acts as a trap - or a blocker. The HayMax applied to the bottom of the nose traps some of the pollen before it enters the body. If there is less pollen in the body, there?s less for the body to react against. Less pollen - Less sneezing and for many people no sneezing.
HayMax does not cure hayfever it works on the cause to reduce or, in some cases, even eliminate the effects of the pollen.
The best solutions are often the simplest ones.
If HayMax traps enough of the pollen to leave you with less pollen in your body than it take for you to react, then you won?t react. If it takes out enough pollen that you are just around the point where you react, then you may find that that although you don't stop sneezing, you sneeze less. Or, if you are particularly sensitive, or if the pollen count is very high, there might be enough pollen getting in to your body that you continue to react. The good news here is that you can use HayMax? in conjunction with anything else you find helpful. In this case, the other product you use may have less of a job to do, since there is less pollen inside you.
However, nothing is perfect and there are some people for whom HayMax doesn't work. We think it's worth a try though.
