Natural Allergy Remedies

Natural allergy remedies can relieve itchy eyes, stuffy noses and drainage. Making changes in your environment, daily habits and diet may provide longer lasting relief. Using a combination of all of these, you might eliminate allergy symptoms altogether.

Allergies

Allergy Relief 1.7 Fl Oz

Many things cause allergic reactions. Severe allergies, like bee stings or allergies to food may cause immediate swelling, difficulty breathing and occasionally serious medical emergencies. Outdoor allergens include dust, pollen, molds and mildew. Animal allergies to dog and cat dander, feathers and even some fibers can cause itchy eyes, runny noses and congestion. Environmental allergies may be caused by chemicals used to treat fabrics, carpet and walls. Allergy symptoms are uncomfortable regardless of the cause and there are many natural allergy remedies to relieve them.

Herbal Remedies

Homeopathic Allergy Medicine 20 Caps

Herbal allergy remedies are made from herbs that relieve congestion, open up sinus cavities and loosen thick mucus. Anti-inflammatory herbs will shrink swollen tissues and herbs that boost the immune system can be included. Herbal remedies are most effective when they are warm. Moist heat will open up sinuses safely and effectively. Tea made from peppermint, chamomile or lavender is poured into a large bowl and the vapors inhaled. Placing a towel over the head keeps the vapors from escaping into the air. These same herbs can be used to make tea. Essential oils made from these herbs can be rubbed over the sinuses to help loosen congestion and relieve pain. Rose Hips, eucalyptus, stinging nettle and alfalfa are also good herbs to use when making tea to eliminate allergy symptoms.

Diet

Allergy Fighters 60 Caps

When searching for natural allergy remedies examining the diet may be in order. Diets that lack whole grains, quercetin, (a natural occurring compound found in apples with skin, berries, red grapes, red onions and black tea,) beta-carotene and carotenoids, (a pigment found in orange vegetables,) and vegetable based omega three acids like those found in acai berries, are more susceptible to allergens. Adding carrots, especially raw, all varieties of the cucurbitace family, (melons, cucumbers, pumpkins and squash,) walnuts, and fresh un-breaded fish to the diet may help reduce the frequency and severity of allergy attacks. Apple cider vinegar is a common natural remedy for allergies. Adding apple cider vinegar to the diet as a salad dressing, veggie dip or beverage may lessen the duration and severity of allergy attacks. Hot compresses of cider vinegar applied to the sinuses relieve pressure.

Lifestyle Changes

Allergy Relief Spray 1 Oz

People who suffer from severe allergies may want to consider making lifestyle changes. When looking to find natural allergy remedies sometimes the answer may be under foot. Carpets are great places for allergens including dust, pollen, pet dander, and other irritants to hide. Removing carpets, heavy drapes and slatted window covering gives allergens less places to hide. Covering pillows and mattress with covers prevents allergens from working their way inside. Avoid using window fans if you suffer from outdoor or seasonal allergies. These types of fans bring the irritants inside your home in great quantities. De-humidifiers can prevent the formation of mold and mildew, which can eliminate some allergic reactions before they begin.

Massage and Acupuncture

Bioallers Mold/Yeast/Dust Allergy Relief 1 FL Oz

Gently massaging the sinuses with essential oils provides instant pain relief and helps eliminate the pressure of congested sinuses. Acupressure can also help reduce pain. Pressing down with the thumb and index finger on the web between the thumb and index finger may provide relief from headache pain. Finding which natural allergy remedies work for you may take some time. Controlling and possibly eliminating your allergy symptoms naturally is worth the effort.
