5 Ways To Nip Allergy Season In The Bud This Spring

It can be almost impossible to enjoy the beautiful spring weather when you are incessantly sneezing, sniffling, coughing & wiping at watery, itchy eyes. There are several ways to address seasonal allergies, but many will choose over-the-counter medications to alleviate symptoms for a brief time. Most of these options contain antihistamines such as Diphenhydramine & Loratadine. Antihistamines serve to block H1 receptor actions that are responsible for allergy symptoms. There are studies suggesting that these types of ingredients do not fair well in the long run for people. There is evidence that long term use is linked to dementia, high blood pressure & damage to the liver. So with that being said, take a look at these natural alternatives to treating your allergies this season!


#1 Spring Clean Your Home

Pollens regularly collect on items like furniture, carpet, ceiling fans, window blinds & bookshelves. Take some time this month to dust, wipe down, mop & vacuum your home & then do it fairly regularly! Change your pillow cases & sheets each week as well to make sure your face is clear of outside allergens.


#2 Use Essential Oils

We regularly talk about the many uses of essential oils for your health & wellness. These oils are also great tools to decrease allergy symptoms, fight off inflammation & pathogens, as well as detoxify the body. Use oils like peppermint, eucalyptus & tea tree to wash your clothing, diffuse inside & in some instances, apply diluted amounts to temples, feet & neck.


#3 Stay Hydrated

Keep a water bottle nearby. Drinking water throughout the day can thin the mucus in nasal passages, helping relieve congestion & a stuffy nose. And if you continually blow your nose, you will need to replenish fluids in your body as well.


#4 Consume Anti-Inflammatory Foods

Diet is an important element to combatting most issues of the body, including allergies! Histamine creates an inflamed response in the body, so eating mostly whole foods like fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, fish & whole grains can soothe & decrease the inflammatory response, as well as nourish your body, encouraging immunity!


#5 Consider Supplementation

There are different flavonoids, antioxidants & plant materials that help support sinus & respiratory health. Consider using Alpha-HIST Sinus Support to address both allergy symptoms & stuffy sinuses. ***
