It is noted that the season is rapidly approaching and quite randomly. What season? The season where individuals will inevitably suffer from some symptoms that may include headaches, runny nose, itching eyes, sore throats and lethargy to name a few.
These symptoms are brought on by the pollen from the blooming plants, trees and flowers and of course this season is known as Allergy Season.
However, you don’t have to suffer the symptoms connected to allergy season. Below are some 7 Natural Remedies you can implement today.
- Saline Rinses
This simple home-made remedy actually works very well. What you are basically doing is flushing out the sinuses with a saltwater solution. The solution is made up of 1 quart of distilled water; if you don’t have distilled water you can boil tap water and allow cooling down.
To the distilled water add 2 teaspoons of non-iodized salt. Place this 8 oz of the saltwater solution in a large squeeze bottle or Neti pot. Be sure to tilt your head over the sink, squeeze or use the neti pot with the solution on the top nostril and allow it to drain out the lower nostril.
Truthfully it will feel as if you are ‘water-boarding’ yourself, but this process will clear out your sinuses and help with allergy symptoms.
- Raw Honey
People have been searching out in the social media platform regarding natural remedies for allergies and ingesting a tablespoon of honey, seemed to be a very popular answer.
If eating a tablespoon of raw honey is not something you can easily do, it can also be added to hot, water and taken in that form.
- An air purifier with HEPA filter
Be sure to choose an air purifier that has a HEPA filter such as that of air conditioning Sydney especially in the bedroom-is the best way to remove spores and pollen from the air.
There are many air purifiers on the market today, but I must say that Sharp Air USA makes several different air purifiers that will benefit your needs.
Don’t be fooled, humidifiers are not only for the cold-weather months. Cool mist humidifiers can be used during cool evenings and will help get allergens out of the air allowing for a more comfortable sleep environment.
- Essential Oils
Our entire family enjoys essential oils and we use them for many purposes from acne, to cleaning to helping with allergy symptoms. Two of our favorite oils are Lavender and
Eucalyptus. We will use them in an air diffuser but if you don’t have a diffuser you can bring a saucepan of water to boil, remove from the stove-top, place a few drops of oil into the water and tent a towel over the saucepan and your head.
Be careful not to allow the steam to hit your face directly. Inhaling the steam combined with the essential oils will help to clear your sinuses.
- Nettle Tea
Be sure to steep a teaspoon of dried nettle in once cup of boiling water for 10 minutes. This solution will help relieve respiratory allergy. If you are unable to find dried nettle you may also take in capsule form found in many health food stores.
- Alternative Care
Chiropractic has been found to help with allergy symptoms. What Chiropractors will do is find the nerve interference that may be occurring in the spine and once removed the immune system can work at its optimal level. Once the immune system is working properly, the body will begin to heal.
These are simply a few natural remedies you can implement in your home today to help ease allergy symptoms.
To a group of five people, statistics show that two of them are allergic to pollens brought about by cats, dust, and pollution. They will experience signs of allergic reactions once they’re exposed to high levels of pollen in the environment. Luckily, they can get allergy home remedies to help them be free from these symptoms.
Most of the time, people would like to do it in a natural manner to ensure they’ll get the results without harmful side effects. A lot of remedies found in the market can cause drowsiness, which can be a problem when a person is working or driving.
Furthermore, people would choose allergy home remedies to help them get an effective solution without spending too much money on it even by purchasing ducted air conditioning in Sydney. Peppermint tea and mint oil are amongst the common remedies that can help relieve breathing problems caused by this allergy type.
