Drink More Fluids
Increasing your daily fluid intake can help thin the mucus in your nasal passages and throat, which will help bring you relief. We recommend low-sugar and non carbonated drinks like water and tea. Tea, especially when served hot can also help with allergy relief as the heat and steam will also calm some of those more fiery allergy symptoms.
This one may seem obvious, and while allergies are not necessarily linked to one’s immune system, it’s proven that those who eat more fresh fruit, vegetables and whole grains are healthier than those who don’t. One study in particular noticed that children who ate more fresh fruit, vegetables and whole grains experienced fewer instances of allergy-related symptoms-though the details of it are few. Regardless, eating better is always a good idea and the first step to living a healthier, happier and more natural lifestyle.
Avoid Using Harsh Chemicals to Clean
While you may think that harsh chemicals do a better job of cleaning your home than natural options, you’re wrong. Never underestimate the power of natural ingredients like citrus fruits, baking soda, vinegar and borax. Products with harsh chemicals can easily cause allergy symptoms to be aggravated, as those fumes and toxins are dispersed into the air every time we use them. Notice the difference and switch over.
It’s surprising, but there are plenty of people who suffer from allergies who are also smokers. We don’t need to explain the negative effects of cigarette smoking here, but in addition to all of those, cigarette smoking can often make your allergy symptoms worse. But wait, just because you aren’t a smoker doesn’t mean you aren’t at risk of suffering – secondhand smoke is incredibly harmful as well and can easily trigger asthma attacks. Avoid situations where you may be near cigarette smoke, or buildings that have been exposed to it.
Essential oils are certainly on trend right now, and with good reason – they are a great and natural alternative to everything from cooking to cleaning to, yes, allergy relief. Lemon oil can provide relief to respiratory issues, tea tree oil can can kill mold and bacteria, and peppermint oil can easily unclog your sinuses. Switching over from prescription or over-the-counter medications is an easy way to treat your allergy symptoms naturally.
There you go, five easy options for natural allergy relief.
