Spring is quickly approaching and before you go to your local drug store and stock up on antihistamines and eye drops, believe it or not, their are natural everyday products that people can use to soothe their allergy symptoms, just like Benadryl or a daily dose of Zyrtec can.
To begin, allergies are a simple sign of how low our immune system can be during this transitional time. Because of the seasonal weather and things like grass and trees are beginning to grow back, it triggers different responses of the body causing us to have itchy eyes, runny noses, allergic reactions and other symptoms to these spring allergies.
1. Vitamin C: simple dosages of Vitamin C everyday can be the extra boost that your immune system needs to get a little more stronger for the season. Getting Vitamin C pills can go a long way, as well as fruits and juices that are rich in Vitamin C.
2. Acidophilus: Crazy word? I know. Believe it or not, Acidophilus is another great immune booster that can not only give your defense system a great stimulus for the season, but it is also a probiotic that gives your body good bacteria to fight bad bacteria. There are acidophilus tablets that are over the counter, or dairy products like milk and yogurt that can be consumed regularly.
3. Onions and Garlic: Onions and garlic contain Quercetin which is a natural antihistamine that gives almost the same dosage of antihistamine that a couple allergy pills can give you. Not only is Quercetin available in drug stores as well, steaming onions and garlic can be a great (but stinky) aroma therapy treatment for your allergies.
4. Bee Pollen and Honey:
Pollen is the main reasons why people get this allergy symptoms, but bee pollen pills and honey is the equivalent to getting a flu shot and injecting the flu virus in the system. Beating allergies with allergies. Get it?
These are some natural foods and vitamins that you can easily take to avoid the everyday Zyrtec and Claritin pills in your system. If this is not enough there are basic treatments that you can do throughout the day to ease your seasonal allergies….
