Explore Natural Remedies
Good News! If you haven’t, you can try natural remedies to get a handle on your allergy symptoms. Avoiding allergens is a great goal, however, this is not always possible. If you find yourself suffering from symptoms try using honey, air filters, spirulina, and peppermint oils.
Honey is best if used in warm water with lemon and can help to lower your reactions over time.
Detox The Body
Removing toxins from your body can help to re-establish balance from within. Eliminating alcohol, sugar, and fried foods from your diet can aid in removing these toxins. Try to implement whole, natural foods into your daily diet. No one food can completely cure your allergies, but they can calm your immune system. Add any of the following foods to your grocery cart – they may help to alleviate your symptoms:
- Salmon (and other oily fish)
- Citrus Fruits
- Bee Pollen
Taking supplements on a daily basis is an easy way to help alleviate seasonal allergies. Vitamin C and D supplements give your body the immune boost it needs to fight off those pesky symptoms.
Don’t let your allergies get the best of you this summer. Take control of your immune system by eliminating stress, using natural remedies, detoxing, and adding supplements to your routine.
