How to Beat Spring Allergies

I love spring. I think it is so beautiful, but springtime allergies are no fun. Unfortunately, there is no cure all for these allergies but here are some remedies to help you this season:

 

  1. Take Medicine

While this is the obvious answer it is still very helpful. It is also a good idea to protect yourself early on by taking medicine long before your eyes get watery and you can’t stop sneezing.

 

  1. Close the Windows

Pollen is the number 1 trigger when it comes to springtime allergies. Shutting your windows can help to keep the pollen out.

 

  1. Give your Home a Thorough Spring Cleaning

A lot of people are also allergic to dust mites. By having a clean home it limits your exposure to things you may be allergic to.

 

  1. Neti Pot

This treatment rinses out your naval cavity using a saline solution and actually flushes out allergens (such as pollen) and loosens mucus.

 

  1. Local Honey

Bees transfer pollen from flower blossoms to honey. By eating a little bit of honey every day you will gradually become inoculated against the irritating effects of pollen.
