Haymana ™ was started by Max Wiseberg, who had suffered from hayfever all his life.
Max had tried all available remedies for his hayfever with limited or no success, until coming across what later became Haymana ™. It was simple and it worked! See Max interviewed by Janey Lee Grace
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. ymateb y corff yw cynhyrchu histamines.
Histamines are the things which, pan fydd gennych chi ormod ohonynt, cause the runny nose, the sneezing, the sore and itching eyes and ears and all the other things hayfever sufferers know so well.
Max also found out that histamines are the things in our brains which help to keep us alert, astud ac yn effro. 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* balm (some people call HayMax a cream, barrier gel or nasal balm).
He conducted limited trials, and all respondents say Haymana ™ gwaith. You can see the results of the trial (and subsequent successful trials by the University of Worcester) on this web site. Read what others say on the tudalen tystebau.

Max had always thought that this would be the case, ond gwrthododd i hyrwyddo'r defnydd o HayMax ™ ar gyfer y diben hwn hyd nes ei fod wedi prawf bod y gallai trap alergenau awyr hyn.
