Natural Remedies to Combat Seasonal Allergies

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018
Allergy season is upon us. How can we use natural methods to combat seasonal allergies? Here are a few quick things that we can do in our daily life and practice:
  1. Avoid foods that create histamine. Foods like dairy, alcoholic beverages, and fermented foods (even vinegar, Kambucha, soy sauce) help the body to create histamine and therefore can make allergy symptoms more prevalent. So, if you are affected by seasonal allergies, you may want to lay off the pickles for a while.
  2. Eat foods that are natural antihistamines like  garlic, onions, citrus, and broccoli.
  3. Commit to a yoga practice that utilizes plenty of inversions such as headstands and shoulderstands; Forward bends like uttanasana, prasarita  padottanasana, and downward-facing dog.
  4. Herbs like stinging nettle, echinacea, sage,  horehound, goldenrod, and reishi mushrooms can also be helpful in treating allergies and their symptoms.
 Enjoy an allergy free spring.
