Natural Remedies for Seasonal Allergies

 

Seasonal allergies affect millions of people around the world. They are the result of a sensitivity to airborne substances (such as pollens), which are released from plants and trees at specific times of the year—particularly the spring, summer, or fall—depending on what a person is allergic to.

Seasonal allergies cause hay fever, whose symptoms include runny nose, puffy, watery or itchy eyes and sneezing. There are many over-the-counter and prescription medicines that can significantly relieve all these unpleasant symptoms. But they can also have serious side effects, such as dizziness, drowsiness, nausea or weakness. The good news is there are some natural remedies that are medically proven to help control seasonal allergies symptoms without any side effects.

Neti Pot

Neti pot, a small pot that looks like a miniature teapot, has been used for hundreds, possibly thousands of years in India and nearby regions by Yogis and Ayurvedic practitioners.
The basic explanation of how the Neti pot works is that it thins mucus with the allergens and helps flush it out of the nasal passages. You can purchase a neti pot in your local pharmacy and it usually comes with an insert that explains how to use it.

Natural Saline Nasal Spray

Saline nasal sprays can stop allergic reactions before they start. By keeping nasal passages moist and clear they prevent allergens from building up in the cilia of the nose. They can help soften mucus, causing it to drain more easily. Additives and preservatives in commercial saline nasal sprays can cause irritation. You can remedy either problem by simply making natural saline sprays at home and your only costs are those of distilled water (8 oz), non-iodized, kosher salt (1/4 tsp) and baking soda (1/4 tsp).

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is not only a powerful antioxidant but it is also a mast cell “stabilizer.” Mast cells are tiny cells that line the mucous membranes and they mediate inflammatory responses such as hypersensitivity and allergic reactions. They release histamine, when they are exposed to allergens. Histamine in the bloodstream is the cause of hay fever symptoms. Vitamin C makes mast cells less reactive, thus reducing allergy symptom. Take 1000 mg of vitamin C each day to fight your seasonal allergies.

Apple Cider Vinegar

It also blocks the histamine reaction and reduces inflammation. Make sure you the buy the raw, unfiltered, and organic type of apple cider vinegar. If you don’t like the smell of vinegar you can mix 1 teaspoon of apple cider with * oz warm water. You can add honey to taste. Drink it up twice a day

Local Raw Honey

By drinking local raw honey you can also build up a strong tolerance to seasonal pollens from your area. The theory being that the local honey acts like a vaccine, because your local bees are more likely to collect pollen from the local flowers. Introducing these pollens should make the body adapted to their presence, which decreases the immune system’s response to release histamine.

    Eye allergies, also called ocular allergies or allergic conjunctivitis, affect one in five Americans. Though the symptoms they cause can be annoying — not to mention unbecoming — they pose little threat to eyesight other than temporary blurriness. But red, itchy, burning, and puffy eyes can be caused also by infections and other conditions that do threaten eyesight. So, it’s smart to see your doctor if eye symptoms don’t get better with self-help strategies or over-the-counter allergy remedies.;';:

    Pollen is a fine powder released by plants as part of their reproductive cycle. Pollen contains proteins that can cause the nose, eyes, throat and sinuses (small air-filled cavities behind your cheekbones and forehead) to become swollen, irritated and inflamed.`::”

    I just started track and I have noticed that it is hard for me to breath at practice. I also ran cross country earlier in the year and my breathing was never a problem so I suspect that it is grass/pollen allergies. The football field that we run around in ALL dead. The grass is brown and flakes up just by running on it. The problem is that I feel like my chest is constricted and I am not able to take in enough air. I do not have a runny nose though I do get dizzy (possibly because I’m running with limited oxygen..) I also had this problem last year during track, but I never thought to attribute it to allergies (I thought it was asthma, but I now know that it is not). I am able to run 10 miles off campus and my breathing is perfectly fine so I think that there is a very good chance that it is the grass that is giving me problems. What are some over-the-counter/ natural remedies for by allergies?
    Thank you,
    Cameron
