Natural Ways to Deal With Seasonal Allergies

Here are a couple recommendations I have found to be beneficial in coping with seasonal allergies along with the links to their products:

Really Raw Honey: Raw honey contains the pollen, dust and molds that cause allergies - by consuming this honey you will build a resistance to the allergens. Start off with 1 teaspoon and work up to a full tablespoon over a two week period than continue daily.

Vitamin C is a natural antihistamine and can be very useful during allergy season. Start off with 1-2 grams per day and work up to 5-7 grams over the course of a couple of weeks. Take one gram at a time throughout the day. Too much Vitamin C is determined when you experience digestive disturbances.

To help cleanse and moisturize sinuses, try a Ocean Brand saline spray. Use this non-addicting spray once or twice a day to help irrigate and purify your sinuses.

When sinus headache or sneezing strikes, try Sinus Buster. With its main ingredient, capsicum (an ingredient found in different types of peppers), will get your eyes tearing a little but clear your head up in no time.

And finally - exercise. Exercise has been proven to boost the immune system and a strong immune system can help fight seasonal allergies.
