As beautiful spring season is a lot of people can not enjoy it to the fullest.
If you suffer from allergies look to mother nature for relief.
Over 35 million Americans face the sneezing, wheezing, runny nose, and itchy, watery, red eyes every year.
Here are 5 suggestions on how to relief your allergy symptoms
1. Neti pot
This little pot can help to clear your nasal passages of allergens and irritants.
Several studies have proven that using a neti pot is effective to prevent and treat several upper respiratory conditions including chronic and acute sinusitis, the common cold and seasonal allergies.
When you use a Neti pot, make sure that the water is distilled and as sterile as possible. Tap water is full of chlorine and fluoride and can actually aggravate your sinuses.
2. Local Bee Pollen and Raw Honey
Taking bee pollen in combination with raw honey is a popular relief for allergies. Start taking it at least 6 months before pollen season starts.
3. Nettle Leaf Tea
Another favorite for hay fever is a tea made from nettle leaves. Sip on it during the day.
Quercetin is a bioflavonoid that stabilizes the release of histamine and help to naturally control allergy symptoms.
It is naturally found in cruciferous, onions, green teas and citrus fruit, a more potent form is available in capsules.
A recent study out of Slovakia has shown that quercetin is so effective that it can help calm down allergic asthma by reducing the hyperactivity of airways. It is so powerful that Iranian researchers have proven that quercetin can help control peanut allergies, the leading cause of life-threatening/fatal allergy attacks.
Various sources suggest that it is best to use quercetin as a long-term remedy and people prone to seasonal allergies should start to take them a few weeks before spring arrives and plants start to bloom.
5. Eucalyptus Essential Oil
Great to give some relief. Put a few drops into your neti pot, or inhale via a diffuser, and inhale directly from the bottle.
It can also be mixed with some coconut oil and rubbed into chest and behind the ears.
Diffusing into the air during the day and while sleeping is also a great way.
