How to Survive the Spring Allergy Season with Natural Remedies

Survive the Spring Allergy Season

Natural allergy treatments to help you through the spring season.

Fresh cut grass, blooming trees and flowers, and weeds releasing pollen… Seasonal allergies affect around 40 to 60 million people every year. Unfortunately, what makes spring so beautiful for many people leads to misery for those who suffer from seasonal allergy symptoms. While hay fever frequently begins at a young age, it can strike anyone, at any time. To overcome your sneezing symptoms, here are some natural remedies to alleviate discomfort.

Eat hot and spicy foods.

Eating something hot and spicy thins the mucus, and allows it to be more easily expressed. Try adding garlic, onion, ginger, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper to your recipes!

Clean your living environment.

Eliminate allergy-causing pollen and mites from the air by investing an air purification system. Give your home a good clean, scrub the walls and wash the bed sheets and pillowcases. The less pollen in your home, the better.

Take quality organic oregano oil.

Many people do report that the oil of oregano helps them feel better when they’re dealing with the typical symptoms of allergies. Taking this supplement will reduce the amounts of histamines found in the blood (this is the chemical that causes swelling and allergic reaction).

Wash all clothes after being outside.

Remove and wash clothes that you have worn outside when coming back into your home. This will help to prevent outdoor pollen from establishing itself in your furniture and bedding. Taking a shower before bed will keep pollen from your hair out of your pillow at night.

Adapt your diet.

Eating a cleaner, healthier, diet will help to improve your immune system and fight off allergies. Avoid mucus and congestion-causing foods such as dairy products, milk, and processed wheat. Aim to fill up on fruits, veggies, nuts, legumes, beans, and seeds. Eating foods high in anti-oxidants will help too, such as grapes, tomatoes, oranges, nuts, and apples.
