Natural Remedy For Seasonal Allergies #1 - Coffee!
Yes coffee has actually cured my allergies, but wait I have to be honest with you.....
....it's not just regular coffee.
It's actually coffee that has been enriched with a super herb called Ganoderma.
Feel free to read more about this amazing "King Of Herbs" in another one of my hubs called Great News For Coffee Lovers.
I discovered this product about 2 years ago because my father was drinking it. All I did was replace my regular coffee with this gano enriched coffee and by the time allergy season rolled by I found myself not reacting at all.
After 2 years of drinking this coffee I have been completely allergy free and also I do not have inflammation in my knees anymore.
I found a great short video from FOX News to help explain to you more about the benefits of this natural remedy.

Natural Remedy For Seasonal Allergies #2: Accupunture
Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese medicine that uses tiny needles to hit specific spots in the body and help the body start healing itself.
There are many licenced acupuncturists. Do a little research in your area for more information about prices and booking an appointment.
Usually you will have to go for many visits before the problem is fixed.
Here is an interesting diagram that shows different points in the body.
Natural Remedy For Seasonal Allergies #3: Omega 3 Fatty Acids
Foods such as;
- Flaw Seed
- Fish (Salmon)
are rich in Omega 3 Fatty Acids and a great source of selenium.
Omega 3 Fatty Acids can significantly decrease the production of inflammatory chemicals in the body.
Selenium is also a significant anti-allergy mineral.
If you have not already, add these 3 different foods/seeds/nuts to your diet.
Natural Remedies For Seasonal Allergies #4: Sunglasses
Recently I was watching an episode of Dr OZ and he suggested wearing sunglasses outside.
The reason why sunglasses can help seasonal allergies is because they stop the pollen/allergens floating around in the air from going into your eyes.
So if you don't usually wear sunglasses here is a great reason to start!
Natural Remedies For Seasonal Allergies #5: Onions and Garlic
Adding onions and garlic to your daily meals are a great way to prevent seasonal allergy flair ups.
They are a great source of quercetin which is a flavenoid that inhibits inflammatory reactions.
Onions and garlic make any meal delicious and now they are even more valuable to the allergy sufferer.

Natural Remedies For Seasonal Allergies #6: Saline Rinse
I absolutely love this rinse and use it all the time.
Some people may not enjoy the thought of rinsing inside the nasal cavity, but trust me when I say "Try it, it feels amazing after!"
All that this entails is a salt mixture that you purchase pre-packaged.
Then you place the salt mixture into warm water inside the neti pot and rinse your nose.
What it does is washes away all the allergens and mucus from inside the nasal cavity. It cleans and also prevents mucus from forming.
It's also great to ease a stuffy nose during a cold.

Natural Remedies For Seasonal Allergies #7: Vitamin C Rich Fruits!
Vitamin C can be found in oranges, kiwi, strawberries and apples just to name a few.
This wonderful vitamin acts as an anti-inflammatory to help counteract allergic reactions.
When purchasing fruit that are high in Vitamin C be sure to get organic.
Not all of these fruits need to be organic. To learn what 14 fruits and veggies that you should be buying organic read this article.
If you haven't already, add these fruits to your diet and eat through out the day.
Natural Remedies For Seasonal Allergies #8: Water
Yes good old H2O is an excellent way to help with allergies.
Why... you may ask. Well let me explain. Water plays an important role in maintaining a strong immune system keeping your whole body well hydrated especially helping lymphatic circulation and sinuses.
Be sure to drink up your daily amount of H2o which is eight 8 ounce glasses.
That reminds me.....I better go get a glass right now!
Natural Remedies For Seasonal Allergies #9: Green & Chamomile Tea
During an allergic reaction histamines occur which stimulate your allergy symptoms to surface immediately.
Green tea and Chamomile tea both have anti histamines that will help with an allergic reaction. They both are also full of anti oxidants which help in building a strong immune system.
Natural Remedies For Seasonal Allergies #10: Rosemary
Rosemary is a herb used mainly for cooking and contains rosemarinic acid which is a plant based polyphenol that has been shown to reduce allergic reactions.
So let's recap what the 10 natural remedies are from seasonal allergies
- Ganoderma Enriched Beverages (coffee and tea)
- Omega 3 Fatty Acids (Salmon, Flaw seeds, walnuts)
- Onions and Garlic
- Saline Rinse (Neti Pot)
- Vitamin C rich fruits
- Green and Chamomile Tea
