The early spring brought plenty of sunshine and high temps, but many of us are also suffering from early spring allergies. Here are some simple natural remedies that may help with your symptoms:
That’s right, drink more water (8-10 cups daily). Increasing your water intake helps support your body’s natural cleansing system, reducing your allergy symptoms.
This is a sweet tip. Eating a teaspoon of local honey a day during allergy season can reduce allergic symptoms. Honey contains very small amounts of the same pollen spores that cause symptoms. By eating local honey you are gradually “vaccinating” the body against allergens. This tip is not for people that are allergic to honey, need to eliminate sugar, or for children under 12 months.
Neti pots are small teapot shaped vessels that are used to flush the sinuses. You can also buy one for kids that is shaped like a large syringe. Make sure you use distilled water or water that has been boiled and then cooled and follow the directions.
