Spring Cleaning Your Allergies

If sneezing and itchy eyes are part of your daily life during this Spring, you may have seasonal allergies. Effective remedies recommended to combat allergy symptoms are freeze-dried stinging nettles, butterbur, Vit C. Quercetin and Homeopathic solutions. These natural supplements perform just as well as antihistamines, without the drowsiness that antihistamines can cause.

If your allergies are particularly bad, check out the possibilites of food intolerances and make some dietary changes as well:

  • Eliminate dairy (to avoid immune-system irritation).
  • Increase your intake of omega-3 fatty acids i.e. Wild Alaskan salmon, freshly ground flaxseeds, or fish oil supplements.
  • Eat plenty of antioxidant-rich fruits such as berries and cherries to help modify the body's inflammatory response.
