If you’re prone to allergies then the springtime is probably not your favorite time of year. However, you don’t have to sit and suffer through this sneezy time period. There are multiple ways in which you can naturally alleviate your allergies.
Honey for Hay Fever
There are many people that are allergic to different types of pollen and eating honey is the perfect way to build up an immunity. Since there are grains of pollen in honey you should be eating a few tablespoons of it per day. Always try to buy local honey because it will contain pollen from the areas in which you live.
Algae for Allergies
If honey isn’t your cup of tea then try out a supplement or drink that contains spirulina. This blue-green algae is an anti-inflammatory that can soften your immune system’s reaction to allergens.
Sage for Sore Throats
Sore throats are always painful due to the raw tissue in your throat. To help heal the throat, add a teaspoon or two of sage to boiling water. Gargle with this water and allow the natural antiseptics and astringents to work their magic.
Stay Clear with Spices
With allergies comes mucus, and you can thin out your mucus by adding more spicy foods to your daily diet. You can also try adding more garlic and onions to your meals since they also act as decongestants. If you’re not into spicy foods, add a teaspoon of hot sauce to a glass of water and throw it back.
