Top Tips To Ease Hayfever This Spring

If the first blossoms of spring evoke memories of an itchy nose, watery eyes and sneezing attacks, this is for you. It may be time for you to utilise high quality natural remedies that target the cause/s of your hay fever, rather than merely suppressing the symptoms like conventional anti-histamine medications do.

WHAT IS HAYFEVER?

Hay fever is an over-reaction of the immune system where the body treats something harmless such a pollen as a threat to the body. In order to remove this perceived threat, the immune system reacts to flush the pollen out of the body with the typical hay fever symptoms such as excess mucous production, itching and sneezing.

WHAT EXACERBATES HAYFEVER?

Hay fever can be driven by inflammation and excess production of histamine in the body. By targeting this inflammation and immune system imbalance by taking natural anti-histamines, anti-inflammatories and immune balancing supplements, you may be able to reduce your hay fever symptoms naturally.

OMEGA 3 FATTY ACIDS

Daily supplementation of omega 3 fatty acids from oily fish or algae have been shown to potentially reduce seasonal allergy symptoms. Omega 3’s work by reducing overall inflammation in the body, soothing aggravated airways and providing a healthy dose of vitamin A and D to support the immune system [1].

ANTI-HISTAMINE HERBS

By consuming herbal medicines that naturally reduce histamine levels in the body, seasonal allergy symptoms such as itchy eyes, sneezing and a runny nose may be significantly reduced. Baical skullcap is a herbal used in traditional Chinese medicine that works on the body’s immune cells to reduce to release of histamine.

PROBIOTICS

Ensuring that you have a healthy balance of good bacteria in your gut is another important way to regulate your immune system to reduce hay fever symptoms. Numerous strains of good bacteria have been studied to lessen the immune response in seasonal allergies. The probiotic strains to look out for in your supplement are the Lactobacillus species [2].
