Natural Remedies for Seasonal Allergies.
Do you suffer from seasonal allergies?
Late August through September I’m sneezy and itchy with watery eyes.
Pollen, mites, pet dander, and mold are all allergens that trigger seasonal allergies.
During seasonal allergies, allergens cause the body’s immune system to head into overdrive leaving you feeling miserable.
Good news! There are some natural histamines that can provide relief.
Seasonal Allergies Natural Remedies
Nettle contains a substance that acts as a natural antihistamine in the body.
To Use: Make 3-4 cups of nettle tea per day throughout the season.
Or, you may elect to try capsules of freeze dried nettle leaf. Aim to take 500 milligrams daily when experiencing seasonal allergy symptoms.
Ginkgo Biloba contains ginkgolides, a substance that can prevent some allergy-triggering chemicals from triggering your allergic reaction.
When seeking relief from seasonal allergies, you’ll want to take 60 to 240 milligrams of a ginkgo biloba supplement daily.
Saline Nasal Sprays
The use of a saline nasal spray can keep nasal passages clean and moisturized. It also works wonders to break up mucus.
For best results, use your saline nasal spray immediately after exposure to allergens.
You can easily pick-up a nasal spray at the grocery store.
Seasonal Allergies Prevention
If you’ll be outside, make sure you wear your sunglasses. In fact, the bigger the sunglasses, the better. Sunglasses help to keep pollen from sensitive eyes.
Create a pollen “trap” under your nose before heading outside. Dab a bit on non-petroleum jelly under your nose to help “trap” pollen before it enters your nose.
When you return inside, carefully wipe your pollen trap off.
