Relieving Spring Allergies Naturally
by Tiffany Washko

Drink Water
One very simple way that you can naturally relieve your problems with allergies this
spring is to start drinking more water. Water helps to thin out the mucous secretions
that your body is making and will keep the tissues well hydrated as well. You should
be drinking at least half your weight in water. For example, if you weigh 140 pounds,
then you should be drinking 70 ounces of water each day to combat these allergies.

Avoid Foods that Create Mucus
Another natural way to treat spring allergies is to make sure that you avoid foods
that tend to create mucus. While you don't have to totally eliminate them, you'll
definitely want to keep away from them as much as possible. Some of these foods
to cut back on include red meats, dairy products, eggs, wheat, processed or fried
foods, and even chocolate. They promote the inflammation in the body and won't be
much of a help to your immune system.

Eat Foods that are Anti Inflammatory
Eating anti-inflammatory foods can be very helpful as well when you want to treat
your spring allergies. These foods include hempseeds, ground flaxseeds, and even
walnuts. Fish oil supplements are also excellent for you. They provide omega-3 fatty
acids that help to get rid of the inflammation that you are dealing with deep in your
nasal passages due to the allergies.

Change Clothing When You're Home
When you first come home from being outdoors, make sure that you change your
clothing. This is a simple and effective way to help alleviate your allergies. Pollen can
be trapped within your clothing very easily, so change as soon as you come home.
The pollen can also get into your hair, so washing your hair more than you usually do
can provide some help as well.

Bioflavonoid Quercetin
You may not know what Quercetin is, but it can help you out when you're dealing
with allergies as well. It is a bioflavonoid that you usually find within red wine, onions,
and even grapefruit. It keeps the body from releasing the histamines that can cause
watering eyes and a runny nose. This can help to alleviate the allergy symptoms that
you are dealing with and it is all natural.
