8 Natural Allergy Remedies that Provide Relief
Tired of allergy meds that make you, well, tired? Try these natural allergy remedies to cut back on seasonal sniffles.
Rinse with saline before symptoms strike. Head off allergies by starting to treat them before you feel anything, advises Nathanael Horne, MD, of New York Medical College. This is especially important these days, as allergy season seems to start earlier every year. One step is to spritz a saline rinse into your nose daily to wash away pollen. This method won’t necessarily take the place of medication, but it could reduce your need for drugs. In one study, participants who rinsed their sinuses twice a day for three to six weeks reported less nasal congestion than those who didn’t.
