Natural hay fever remedies: What works?

If you suffer from dreaded hay fever, then you’ll know just how uncomfortable, annoying and downright unbearable it can make the warmer weather.

Honey

Honey is said to cure hay fever because the bee pollen in honey can desensitise your body to other pollens. Increasing honey in your daily dietary intake should reduce hay fever symptoms significantly. Make sure you use local honey to your area to see the best results.

When to take: daily before hay fever season starts.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a known natural antihistamine and can be found in oranges, lemons and grapefruit. Also present are bioflavonoids, which have powerful anti-allergy effects. The combination of vitamin C and bioflavonoids provides a natural decongestant and antihistamine for sufferers and helps alleviate symptoms effectively. Oranges are a good dose of vitamin C or you can take a supplement.

Hot peppers

Red peppers and chilli peppers contain an active component called capsaicin. When eaten, this component opens nasal passages and helps reduce congestion brought on by hay fever, alleviating symptoms significantly.

When to take: Add to your daily diet, on salads or cooked with your evening meal.

Carotenoids

Chamomile tea

Garlic

Acupuncture

Self-hypnosis

Vaseline

Spreading a thin layer of Vaseline inside the lower nostrils can help combat hay fever and reduce symptoms significantly. The Vaseline traps pollen entering the nostrils,effectively blocking it from entering the nasal passages and stopping hay fever symptoms from worsening.

Comment: When suffering from hay fever I wear sun glasses to protect my eyes. I also put Vaseline under my nostrils to catch the pollen before it goes up my nose. I also drink lots of cold water to wash out my system.They work for me!
