When you have an allergy, your body’s natural defense system identifies a certain substance as dangerous. Its reaction can cause more damage than the substance itself as it begins to produce antibodies against it. Some natural remedies are effective in treating pollen allergies.
A saline nasal spray
Using a saline nasal spray is one of the best ways to deal with a pollen allergy as it helps to thin the mucus and clear the pollen out of the nasal cavity. All you need to do is to boil some distilled water and dissolve a teaspoon of salt into it to make the spray.
Butterbur is a marsh plant that has one of the best records for helping with pollen allergies. It can be administered as an oil extract or a pill and helps to inhibit inflammation, relieving the allergic reaction.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar is believed to cleanse the lymphatic system and reduce mucus production. Mix a teaspoon of unfiltered, organic apple cider vinegar into a glass of water and drink three times a day. It not only helps to relieve allergy symptoms but can help you to avoid attacks.
Nettle leaf is effective because it acts as a natural anti-histamine. The capsules made from dried nettle leaf are probably the easiest option. Nettle leaf can also be included in a soothing tea together with peppermint leaf. Put into a large glass jar, fill with boiling water and let it stand overnight before straining and keeping in the fridge.
