3 Tips for Coping with Fall Allergies
For many, it’s that dreaded time of year again. The time of itchy eyes, constant sneezing, and terrible congestion. Yes, it’s allergies, the dreaded “A-word” of the fall season. If you want relief, don’t look to common allergy medications that can have nasty side effects and leave you feeling even worse than you did to begin with. If you’re already suffering from allergies, you don’t need a medication that will leave you asleep at your desk. Instead, you should consider giving alternative and natural remedies a try.
A number of essential oils contain potent anti-inflammatory properties that can help the body fight off histamines just like over-the-counter antihistamines can, but without all of the unpleasant side effects! Lavender essential oil has a number of properties that can relieve your allergy symptoms, and the chemical constituents of Peppermint essential oil also have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties that soothe respiratory reactions. Blend these in your diffuser or dilute them and dab them on your skin in order to enjoy their benefits. Lemon and Roman Chamomile are two other essential oils that will increase blood circulation, clear away congestion, and relieve irritation. Roman Chamomile is even safe enough to use on infants when diluted!
Stock Up on Supplements and Herbs
Quercetin, nettle leaf, and probiotics are a few of the most popular supplements and herbs that can be used to naturally fight your allergy symptoms. Quercetin is a bioflavonoid that actually stabilizes cells to prevent them from releasing the histamines that cause your pesky symptoms. Since it’s also a potent antioxidant, it can reduce inflammation in a flash. It will work best if you begin taking it about two months before allergy season begins. Nettle leaf is another natural antihistamine that prevents the release of histamines in your system. Try nettle leaf tea each morning to keep your system in check.
Raw, Local Honey
All honey is not alike. Most honey is processed at high temperatures, which kills all of its natural goodness. If you can find honey that is local to your area and also raw (in other words, not processed at high temperatures), then you have found liquid gold. Eating local raw honey every day, either on a spoon or mixed into your tea, yogurt, or smoothie, will act like a natural immunization against the local pollen and allergens that cause your fall allergies. It’s the most delicious way to eliminate your symptoms!
