3 Natural Remedies To Help You Fight Off Allergies

BeeIt’s August, which means the Fall Allergy season is coming around the corner. Allergy is one of the most annoying things in the world, we get it. While allergy is not curable, you can take control and treat your symptoms. It is also noteworthy that preventing yourself from being exposed to your allergens is always better than spending efforts dealing the outbreak. If you do, unfortunately, get caught up in this nightmare, here are 3 simple remedies you can take to ease the symptoms and speed up the recovery:

Neti Pot

Always being brought up in any allergy remedy discussion nowadays, Neti Pot has grown very popular. Although this tradition has been practiced in Asia from long ago, it has only become mainstream to Western medicine in recent years. Neti Pot can clear your nasal passages and get rid of allergens and irritants, which will reduce the duration of symptoms. Keep in mind that, since the water will irrigate throughout your sinus, make sure that it is distilled and sterilized as much as possible.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar is a godsend to modern medicine. It is a widely used natural remedy and effective in treating health conditions including allergies.  It consists of various of compounds, such as acetic acid, vitamin A, vitamin Cc and many others, that help fight off allergy symptoms. To benefit from this natural medicine, you can simply take 1 to 2 teaspoons a day. If the sour taste of it is too much to handle, you can mix it with lemon juice, honey or water to get a more enjoyable taste.

Local honey

Using bee honey as a supplement for medication has been around for way too long, dating back to the ancient years. There is a reason that this remedy has always been popular, and it’s because honey certainly works. Taking a tablespoon of honey from your local farm daily could help you build up a tolerance towards the local allergens that like to mess with your sinus. It also goes down very easy compared to Apple Cider Vinegar. What’s the catch? There is none!
