5 Natural Ways To Combat Your Allergy Symptoms
Spring is in the air. Between the tiny buds blossoming on your favorite tree, to the blooming of the flower bushes in your garden, this beautiful time of year can also make for a sniffily one. As we inch closer to May, you might be noticing that nature’s beauty is causing your allergies to flare up, for which you can personally thank pollen.
As trees, grasses, flowers, and weeds begin to release tiny grains into the air for fertilization, they make their way into our nose cavity causing our immune system to send out antibodies to attack the invader. This process leads to release of chemicals called histamines that turn into your favorite symptoms, runny nose, sneezing, itchy eyes, etc.
To celebrate “National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month,” we wanted to give you “5 Natural Ways To Combat Your Allergy Symptoms.”
1.) Keep Allergens Outside
While it might seem like a beautiful warm day and you want nothing more than to open your window, keep it closed. It’s possible that the pollen count could be high and the last thing you want is for more pollen to be entering your house.
2.) Keep Clean
As soon as you get home from running errands, be sure to wash your hands and change out of any clothes that might have specks of pollen. And if you don’t already, it’s not a bad idea to take a shower before bed to remove any allergens that found their way into your hair.
3.) Stay Hydrated
If you’re feeling icky and experiencing cold like symptoms, it’s never a bad idea to increase your water intake. The more you consume, the better off your nasal passage might be as your body takes the extra hydration to thin the mucus in your nose. Beyond water, try drinking tea as well. Nothing feels better in your distressed nose than inhaling warm steam.
4.) Try Forces of Nature Medicine
Our maximum strength allergy medication naturally relieves common indoor and outdoor allergy symptoms including hay fever, hives, watery eyes, runny stuffy nose, rhinitis, sneezing, itchy eyes and throat from pollen, ragweed, grasses, animal dander and mold.
So, how does it work? After you take our medication, it will work to stop the inflammatory response that allergies cause while stimulating your body's natural healing response to desensitize your body to allergens over time. We also understand that not all allergies are alike, and you might be experiencing other symptoms as well.
Other products that work well are our Natural Sinus Relief remedy and for headaches or migraine attacks caused by allergies, try Migraine Pain Management and Headache Pain Management.
5.) Know What Is Causing Your Allergies
Last but not least, if your allergies feel out of control, meet with your allergist to find out what is causing you to have strong seasonal reactions. As soon as you’re able to determine what is bothersome for you with allergy testing, you can create a plan of action!
