The understanding of the nature of an allergic reaction will allow you to eliminate unpleasant symptoms, being guided by ordinary common sense. First of all, imagine a grain of pollen which is covered by needles and irritants. And now pretend that this enemy gets down into your nose and is held by a soft mucous tissue layer. One natural allergy remedy that is becoming quite popular is using a “neti pot”. A neti pot is a small container shaped like a genie’s lamp that contains saltwater, which is often used to clean the nasal passages naturally. Saltwater is quite effective in rinsing away the pollen grains that help to trigger allergic reactions.
Changing your diet habits is one of the best natural remedies to your allergies. Basically, you need to know that actually allergies are inflammatory diseases, and if you are able to suppress or stop the production of inflammatory chemicals in your body, you are actually already doing your best to improve your allergy condition. The immune system weakens each allergy we get. Especially if you have terrible problems with sinuses, because if you get infection in your sinuses, Doctor proscribes antibiotics, and if you get frequent sinus infections, antibiotics weaken your immune system. Don’t get me wrong, when you have infection you have to take the antibiotics, but you also have to boost your immune system.
One natural way to seek relief is with green teas. They have antihistamines in them and they also help calm you down. Do you know that oatmeal is an allergy remedy for hives? Add one cup of boiling water on the oatmeal, strain the water and let the water cool down. Then apply it to the hives. The easiest of the natural allergy remedies is to just stay indoors when you know the pollen count will be high. Unfortunately pollen usually peaks during the nicest weather of the year and staying indoors maybe hard but may be worth it if your allergies are very bad.
The best and most effective herbs that I have used are ginger and turmeric. I started to drink especially ginger juice a year ago on a daily basis, and my allergy condition have noticeably improved. Two small glasses of ginger juice everyday would be enough to do the magic. Nettle is one of the most popular natural allergy remedies. If you decide you want an antihistamine but want a natural alternative, stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) behaves in much the same way as a lot of the drugs sold to treat allergic reactions, but without the unwanted side effects of dry mouth and sleepiness.
Apple cider vinegar is actually taken as a daily tonic that is strong enough to prevent allergic responses from happening in the very first place. When it comes to its prescribed dosage, you should have it at just an eighth of a cup. You can take this down in a single gulp. Or if this is too acrid for your taste, then you can opt to mix this with another eight ounces of water.
