A reader recommended this tonic for hay fever/allergies awhile back after my request for natural remedies. I tried the honey alone without too much success. With the sun coming out this past weekend, we were hit with allergies pretty hard, and this little recipe came to the rescue!
1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Tbsp Honey
8 oz water
Take 2-3 times per day. Once in the morning and once in the evening seems to be working pretty well for us! We formally have used smaller quantities for a daily immune boaster and for all the other wonderful benefits of ACV, but now I am seeing it as greatly beneficial for allergies!
Nettles: Nettles is also a great herb for allergy relief. If you suffer from pollen related allergies, treat yourself to a cup of Nettle tea a few times a day during allergy season. For added benefit, use local honey to sweeten the tea…the natural pollens from the local flowers – via the bees – will build up your tolerance levels for pollens in your area. This must be done preventatively, however, not to provide immediate relief.
BioAllers Sinus & Allergy Relief – a homeopathic solution for allergies to pollen or animals.
Lastly, always wash your hands and nostrils out when you come indoors. It will help clear out pollen and prevent you from sneezing too much.
