It’s Allergy Season, A Few Easy Remedies That Won’t Break the Pocket Book
It is allergy season, spring is in bloom and pollen and dirt and all that good stuff is in the air and wreaking havoc on those who have allergies.
Our friends at ProNews 7 did a story about allergy season in the Texas Panhandle.
However, if you suffer from allergies you can find remedies that don’t cost you and arm and a leg.
According to iVillage:
Iced Tea is full of:
antioxidants that squash production of immunoglobulin E, a key symptom-trigger for spring allergy sufferers. Steep loose or bagged tea for at least three minutes to maximize the antioxidants in each glass; then drink 24 ounces daily for best results, suggests endocrinologist Daniel Nadeau, M.D., co-author of The Color Code.
Shampoo Your Eyelashes
Suds up your lids and lashes with a dollop of baby shampoo twice daily, and you’ll cut the redness, itching, watering and puffiness by as much as 90 percent, say researchers at Brooklyn’s Long Island Hospital. “Baby shampoo gently removes sticky pollen before it can work its way into your eyes,” explains Clifford Bassett, M.D., medical director of Allergy and Asthma Care of New York.
Local, raw honey. Yum! Who doesn’t like the idea of taking a spoonful of honey daily!?! Local, raw honey has the greatest ability to reduce allergies or get rid of them all together. If you know what it is that causes your allergies to flare up, your body can build a tolerance to it if you consume local honey from that specific plant source.
