Beat Seasonal Allergies Naturally

Did you know that seasonal allergy sufferers usually also have issues with their adrenals, immunity, and digestion? The strain that these problems create on the body worsen the immunity overreaction that a bout of hay fever represents. When you nourish and heal your body as a whole, you’ll likely suffer less severe allergies in the future. When you take the typical over the counter antihistamines, it masks the problem, but it doesn’t fix it. Holistic methods like changing what foods you eat and adding natural supplements will actually help you heal.
Dietary changes can do a lot for allergy sufferers. Reducing or eliminating inflammation and mucous promoting foods like alcohol, caffeine, sugar and dairy products can allow your body to cleanse and heal itself without interference from your diet. You’ll need to eat plenty of foods that help break up congestion and reduce inflammation such as ginger, turmeric, green leafy vegetables, onions, garlic, cayenne, and horseradish. Supplements are also valuable in fighting off hay fever attacks. Choosing supplements like vitamin C, milk thistle, and probiotics can help build up the immune system, digestion, and liver. You can take them as pills, but there are also teas and lozenges. One of our favorites is Allergease All Natural Allergy Lozenges. These tasty things contain herbs like eyebright and nettles that help with itchy eyes, congestion, and sneezing because of their natural antihistamine properties. There are many other ways to reduce allergy symptoms, including proper nutrition and plenty of water. For further information, you can visit http://www.naturopathic.org/content.asp?contentid=117.
