I had seasonal allergies. Now I don't. I accidentally cured my seasonal allergies.

Hay Fever Allergies

Allergies are the result of your immune system trying to fight off something that is harmless. Your immune system overreacts. Hay fever symptoms can include an itchy sore throat, itchy water eyes, a congested or runny nose and sneezing. During allergy seasons staying indoors with the windows closed and taking allergy medication can help. That is what I used to do until I found out how get rid of my allergies by changing my habits.

You can relieve or maybe even cure your hay fever allergies by doing a few simple things that are good for your health. It worked for me. It could work for you. My seasonal allergies are gone. Can you get rid of your seasonal allergies? There are different studies with different results and there are different opinions. The best way to find out the answer to the question is to take action. Do things that worked for other people and see if they work for you.

Switch to Deep Slow Belly Breathing

Your lungs are in your chest. When you take shallow breaths you can feel it in your chest. When you take deep breaths you can feel it in your chest and your belly. Most of the time you are probably taking shallow breaths. Switching to deep slow belly breathing is an easy way to improve your health and reduce allergy symptoms.

Get comfortable and focus on your breathing. Take deep slow breaths and notice that you belly rises and falls as you breath. Focus on your breathing and how it feels. Breath through your nose and briefly hold your breath before exhaling. Practice belly breathing for 5 to 10 minutes a day for a week. Then start using it throughout the day. Gradually replace shallow chest breathing with deep slow belly breathing.

Exercise More

A sedentary lifestyle is linked to asthma, allergies and obesity. Some adults develop asthma because they did not get enough exercise. Cardio exercises like biking and running can burn calories, improve your blood circulation, reduce stress, strengthen your lungs and improve the quality of your sleep. Exercise can also help you get rid of belly fat. Your body needs exercise to function properly. Reduce the amount of time you spend sitting still and do more cardio. During allergy season it important stay active.

When I started biking it made a huge difference to my breathing and resting heart rate. If possible start doing relaxing cardio exercises before allergy season. I also recommend relaxing body weight exercises like yoga. Being skinny is not enough. If you want to reduce or eliminate your seasonal allergies then you should exercise regularly. Focus on relaxing exercises that strengthen your lungs and heart.

Stay Hydrated and Sweat out Allergens.

Allergens are things that cause an allergic reaction. It is easier for your body to remove toxins and allergens when you stay hydrated by drinking lots of water. Sweating is good for you. When you sweat your body gets rid of toxins and allergens. Sweat out allergens by exercising inside or by using a sauna. On warm days you can work up a sweat outside.

Prevent Hay Fever

During allergy season intense exercise can make your allergies worse and it can be hard to relax when you are suffering with hay fever symptoms. Do not wait for allergy season. It is easier to prevent hay fever than to deal with it after it happens. Start at least 2 weeks before the beginning of allergy season. If you waited too long limit the intensity and duration of the exercise. When your allergies are bothering you jogging is good, sprining is not.

The things I do to prevent seasonal allergies also help to prevent colds, flu and other illnesses. They help your immune system work better and most people with seasonal allergies suffer in the spring and the fall. So I recommend taking good care of yourself all year long. Prevent health problems instead waiting for them to happen.

Meditation, Hypnosis , Yoga, Tai Chi or Qigong

If your allergies are still bothering you try meditation, hypnosis, yoga, tai chi or qigong. They all teach you how to become more relaxed and they all have a very long list of health benefits. Relaxation is good but deep relaxation is better. Meditating for 15 minutes a day can make a huge difference. Even if you do not keep practicing them you can use what you learned to improve your health and prevent seasonal allergies.

Reduce Allergies To Do List

  1. Switch to deep slow belly breathing.
  2. Exercise to lose belly fat and strengthen your lungs.
  3. Practice being relaxed and get good at it.
  4. Stay hydrated.
  5. Sweat out allergens and toxins.
  6. Prevent seasonal allergies instead of waiting for allergy season.

Results

Hay fever is more common in people that do not exercise regularly and stress makes allergies worse. You could significantly reduce hay fever symptoms in days and eliminate the symptoms in weeks. Results will vary but at a minimum you should be able to significantly reduce allergy symptoms by not doing things that make allergies worse. There are other things you can do to reduce allergy symptoms like vacuuming and showering before bed. I just listed what I consider the best natural seasonal allergy relief remedies. I do not need to do anything else.

Some of the benefits of regular exercise and relaxation include improved sleep, more energy, improved breathing, fat loss, improved mental abilities and improved control over your emotions. Your immune system will work better and you will probably require less sleep. I consider myself cured because I no longer experience any hay fever symptoms during the allergy seasons. However if I stop doing things to prevent seasonal allergies and start doing things that make allergies worse my allergies will come back.

Could you reduce your seasonal allergy symptoms?
