Allergies better on SW?

Has anyone else noticed that by eating a healthy diet, allergies or other seemingly unrelated problems have started to magically clear up?

I've been doing SW about a month (although started trying to eat well since mid march), and normally at this time of year my nose/eyes/throat are streaming with hayfever, but this year I've barely suffered from it at all! *Touch Wood* I'm still getting a few sneezes whenever I go out, but ordinarily I'd be unable to escape it even indoors. And there are no signs either of my nose/throat itching which I always get.

Is this common? Has anyone else noticed that by eating a better diet that their allergies have cleared up? In a way, I think this is even better than the weightloss, and very unexpected :D

Unfortunately not for me. I have various allergies my skin is allergic to metal, soap, lots of moisturisers, suncream, sun, washing powders. Certain foods trigger migraines. I also wake up sneezing every day, summer or winter but have never really had much hayfever, except when the grass is being but and it's sunny. This year I've had horrendous hayfever since mid-April - sneezing, sunny nose, wheezing at night (which has never happened before) and REALLY itchy eyes. Anti-histamines aren't working, nor is the anti- allergy nasal spray that I switched to last week. :( I think I might have to go to the doctors.

I suffer from nasty eczema - since starting SW ( it also happened with atkins) my itchy bits have really calmed down and are much less irritating and red - - with atkins i think it was cause i was consuming a lot of hemp oil which is good for skin - - i havent had any alcohol in 9 days so i honestly think that is also something to do with it - ( as i am not eating oils on SW)
