Tips and remedies to fight seasonal allergies

Spring has come, allergies and pollen are around the corner and for many people the season of hay fever and sneeze could turn into a nightmare.

An allergic reaction can have many different symptoms: persistent dry cough, rhinitis, runny nose and severe congestion of mucous membranes; in many cases, itchy, tearing and burning eyes, fatigue and irritability; in the most severe cases, asthma attacks and shortness of breath.

 

The importance of prevention

The most common allergies occur in spring and summer and are triggered by plants that bloom from April to September. Grass, pellitory, Compositae, Betulaceae and Oleceae are just some of the plants that trigger allergic reactions. It is advisable to take preventive measures and natural remedies as early as March that can help a lot. The important thing is that you take these remedies consistently during the period you need them.

A mixture of trace elements such as manganese, sulfur and phosphorus is fundamental to prevent allergies. The first element improves the individual’s biochemical terrain, monitors and tackles hyper reactions; sulfur has detoxifying properties and removes toxins; phosphorus is an antispasmodic substance. Take a vial a day for a month and then a vial on alternate days in the morning without food holding the liquid under the tongue for two minutes before swallowing.

 

Combine it with at least 50 drops of Rosa Canina mg and 50 drops of Blackcurrant mg in the morning without food in a little water and before dinner take just 50 to 70 drops of Blackcurrant mg. The dosage varies according to necessity and body types. Other remedies can be added to this therapy for spring allergies when the plant that triggered the allergy reaction is in full bloom.

All the remedies listed above are extremely effective even in situations of chronic allergic disorders (allergies to mites, animals, mould, dust), if they’re taken consistently and for long periods. Unfortunately, climate change, increased pollution and stress have contributed to develop perennial allergies.

 

Nutrition and lifestyle

Of course, pay attention to your diet and avoid foods that contain histamine or stimulate their production. Eat them in small amounts, infrequently and never combined.

 

Aged cheese, shellfish, seafood and certain types of fish (mackerel, sardines, tuna, anchovies), red wine, tomatoes, spinach, aubergine, cured meat, soy sauce contain high levels of histamine.

Strawberries trigger the production of histamine.

 

On the contrary, chocolate, cocoa, strawberry, citrus fruit, pineapple, kiwi, banana, pear, mushrooms, peanuts, walnuts, egg whites and coffee are the so-called histamine liberators.

 

Avoid stressful situations that may worsen your allergic reaction, or prevent healing.

 

Take care of your personal hygiene having showers and washing your hair more frequently because pollen can settle in your hair, as well as home hygiene, especially if you have carpets and rugs. It is recommendable to quit smoking, follow a healthy diet, avoid a sedentary lifestyle and have a positive attitude.

 

It is advisable to turn to good professionals who will show you the most suitable remedy for you and the appropriate dosage.
