During the winter and spring I suffer from allergies, sneezing, getting congested and eyes water. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America estimates that 30 % of adults and 40% of children suffer from allergies. To curb the effects, though, consider reaching for pone of these natural remedies if your doctor gives you the ok.
Butterbur - This root extract is often used to treat coughs, asthma, hay fever, headaches and stomach ulcers.
Neti Pot - Neti Pots are use to prevent and treat upper respiratory conditions, but make sure the water you use is distilled and as sterile as possible. Tap water contains chemicals that might actually make sinus conditions worse.
Raw Honey - Eating a table spoon of local, raw honey every day is supposed to help the body build a tolerance to the regional pollen and allergens in the air.
Quercetin - Naturally found in wine, onions, green tea, and citrus fruit, quercentin is a cell stabilizer, blocking the release of histamine which causes inflammation. Some sources suggest this is a long-term remedy, and people who suffer from seasonal allergies shout take quercetin in the weeks leading up to spring.
Steam - Taking a hot shower or inhaling steam can help clear mucus and keep nasal passages from drying out.
I hope this remedies help you deal with your allergies.
