Do you or anybody you know suffer from hay fever? According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI), as many as 50 million Americans suffer from allergies such as hay fever! So what can you do to protect yourself? NaturalCures.com is pleased to give you all the tips and secrets you will need to live a happy, healthy spring and summer, free from the sniffly side-effects of hay fever.
The most common side effects of hay fever include excessive mucus production, nasal congestion, trouble breathing through the nose, sneezing, itching eyes, headaches and in extreme cases eczema, constipation and gastritis. But worry not! It’s time to put down the tissues and pick up your spirits.
Here’s Our 5 Step Guide To A Hay Fever Free Future:
The ancient Chinese practice of acupressure takes a hands on approach to alleviate ailments and relieve you from hay fever symptoms. Take your hand and place your thumb and index finger on the upper ridge of the eye socket, near the bridge of your nose, and press upward into the slight indentation you will feel there. As you do so, take your other hand and use your thumb and middle finger to press up beneath your cheekbones, directly below your eyes. Do this for one minute, with your eyes closed, as you breathe deeply. Repeat as necessary throughout the day. For further advice you can use the NaturalCures.com Doctor Referral Service to find a TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) practitioner near you!
Inhaling the steamed vapors of the essential oils of chamomile, eucalyptus, lavender, melissa, or rose is another step you can take to help relieve symptoms of hay fever.
Don’t Eat: Sugary products, starches, wheat, soft drinks, fried foods, citrus-fruits, coffee, dairy products, peanuts and alcohol. Also beware of bananas as they encourage mucus production!
Do Eat: Organic whole foods that are rich in fiber, free-range meats, poultry, garlic, onions, homemade soups and plenty of water. You should also make sure that the foods you are eating are produced locally, especially honey, as this will help you build up your natural immune system by exposing you to tiny amounts of allergens over time.
“Locally produced honey is one of the most powerful remedies for protecting you against hay fever.”
One of the most useful herbs for treating hay fever is nettle, also known as Urtica dioica, which has been shown to help clear the sinuses while significantly reducing the symptoms of hay fever. Other useful herbs include angelica, astragalus, black cohosh, catnip, comfrey (use under the direction of a trained herbalist), coriander, dandelion root, ephedra, eyebright, fenugreek, ginger root, goldenseal, horseradish, licorice root, mullein, pleurisy root, red pepper, and skullcap.
