I know exactly where the OP is coming from. My boys and I were sick for a month straight after we got here; my little guy took 6 months to bounce back and had never had any issues back home. The NP we went to told us it was likely due to allergies and problems adjusting to the climate. She suggested I change the filters in the house immediately and again a few weeks later. She even suggested I turn the air on to let some fresh air circulate instead of opening the windows until our bodies adjusted.

Were you really stressed before moving here (closing on a home, leaving friends and family etc...) If so, prolonged periods of stress can really do a number on your immune system as well.

I recently bought some honey from a local harvester... try it if you are having any allery issues.

My best to you.

I have heard that - and that it has to be local to work. I saw honey at the Katy farmers market - but it was really expensive. Where did you find it?

I saw someone with a stand set up selling the local honey. It was over at 34th and Shepherd in Garden Oaks.

I think when you move some distance away to another community, you are dealing with a different environment (allergens), different "germs", etc that you haven't been exposed to before. And some people are more susceptible than others. My daughter got sick often the first few months we moved to Houston, but after that initial bout, she has been fine.
