Hayfever Cures and Remedies

Hayfever ruins spring and summer for millions of sufferers throughout the world every year. It is thought that hayfever affects around one in four people, and can cause runny nostrils, headaches, constant sneezing, itchy eyes, tiredness, blocked nostrils, and more unwelcoming symptoms.

Luckily for hayfever sufferers there are now lots of cures and remedies available, that can reduce and even stop hayfever altogether. Here we will explore the many cures and remedies that can make summer a much more pleasent experience for any hayfever sufferers.


As strange as it might seem it is proven that mint can prevent hayfever. One of the old and most famous ways to stop hayfever is to have two mint plants either side of the back door. This will encourage the mint to flow into the house, and you will be inhaling it. Some consider this to be an old farmers tale, but if you ask anyone of the older generation then you will find that they swear by it. After all they didn't have all the modern remedies available to them back in their day.


This may seem like a really strange option for preventing hayfever, but it is one that hundreds of thousands of people claim can stop your hayfever altogether on a permanent basis. Not quite too sure how this works, and I suppose it depends entirely on how suceptible your are to hypnosis. An unusual remedy yes, but also a living one.
