Four Natural Ways to Ease Seasonal Allergy Symptoms

Updated on July 11, 2012

Natural Herbs and Supplements for Allergy Relief

If you suffer from symptoms of seasonal allergies, you are not alone. There are many people who dread "allergy season," described as the times between Spring and Summer and Autumn and Winter. However, there are people who suffer from allergy symptoms all year round. I am one of those people. After completing my education in Holistic Nutrition I began trying out different remedies to relieve my seasonal allergies. I wanted something that did not make me drowsy and that actually worked for my symptoms, but also something that was good for my body. I found four remedies that I would recommend to any one of my friends, family members or co-workers and to anyone else that suffers from seasonal allergies.

1. Vitamin C

It's not just for colds. Believe it or not Vitamin C has been used therapeutically in the field of Nutrition to relieve symptoms of seasonal allergies such as runny nose, watery and/or itchy eyes and sore or itchy throat. Vitamin C inhibits the production of histamine in the body, naturally. In order for a person to benefit from the vitamin they would have to consume at least 1,000 mg. per day or more. It may take a couple of days or weeks for someone to notice a difference since it is quickly used up by the immune system.

2. Hyland's Seasonal Allergy Relief Tablets

These small white tablets come with a sweet flavor. They are 100% natural and herbal. The bottle claims that they will not make you drowsy, and it was true for me. The tablets are dissolved under the tongue and are taken every four hours or as needed. They definitely work to relieve symptoms of hay fever and respiratory allergies to mold, pollen, animal dander, ragweed and grasses, just like the label says. I suffer from all of those allergies and the tablets have worked their magic on me.

3. Hyland's Sinus Tablets

I have to say these tablets work even better than the allergy tablets for me. I experience sinus pressure and pain along with my allergy symptoms and these tablets clear that right up. The label states that they are made specifically for sinus congestion due to the common cold, but they work great for sinus congestion caused by allergies, as well. These tablets are also dissolved under the tongue and are taken by the directions on the label. The greatest thing about them is that they are 100% homeopathic and natural.

4. Allergease All Natural Herbal Supplement Lozenges

At first I was skeptical about these. I thought, how could a lozenge or something that resembles a cough drop actually take away sinus pain, pressure and all of my other allergy symptoms? I sent away for a free sample and I fell in love with them after the first time using one. They actually take away sinus pain, pressure, itchy throat and also have a pleasant, citrus taste. They are made with organic honey and are gluten free. The only negative effect of these is that my symptoms only went away for about an hour or two after the drop was gone and then later returned, so if you want something that will make your symptoms disappear for longer periods these may not be for you.

All of these remedies are great if you want to avoid medications and chemicals that may be harmful to the body. I am also allergic to dye, which is in many commercial allergy products so these are great alternatives to those. You can buy all of these at online stores or at the company's websites. They are all inexpensive and are healthy for the body as well, with no known side effects. You can purchase Hyland's products at vitacost.com or hylands.com. Allergease drops can be purchased online at www.aedrops.com.

      This is a really helpful hub. My boyfriend suffers with very bad allergies all year round, and I feel terrible because he tries everything, but he becomes immune to medications quickly, and they stop helping. It's nice to learn about some natural options. Thank you! Voted up.

      Awesome Hub CBC I too suffer from allergies, I took 2 allergy shots a week for 3 years - barely made a difference. I will look for the Hylands brand and give them a try.
