Top Natural Cure for Allergies

Updated on December 9, 2015

It is possible to be allergic to just about anything. The most common type is inhalant allergies which can be caused by 4 airborne troublemakers: pollen, pet fluff, mould and the house-dust mite. The symptoms for an allergic reaction to airborne allergens are a plugged up and dripping nose, itching eyes and burning lungs.

Another common type is allergic skin reactions, this can happen because of cosmetics, warmth, cold, sunlight, poisonous plants, vaccines and so on. It will normally form a red rash on your skin.

Some people are troubled by food allergies: milk, grain and nut allergies are common.

If you have a severe case you should go see your doctor, he will most likely give you an antihistamine injection.

In this article we will look at ways of reducing airborne allergens in your environment and natural cures for allergies which can alleviate your symptoms.


Skin – Best natural cure for allergies
The best natural cure for skin allergies is a paste of sandalwood and limejuice. Apply this to the rash. Alternatively you could try applying mashed almond leaves.

Best natural remedy for food allergies
This drink works for most allergies. Mix Carrot juice with beetroot and cucumber juice then drink that twice a day.

You can reduce your exposure to pollen by installing air-conditioners in your home and car. It filters the air sealing out pollen. Reducing your exposure to pollen will make you much healthier.

You can get rid of mould in damp parts of the house by washing with a bleach water mix. In tougher areas like an attic use over the counter fungicides.

Animal fluff
Many people are allergic to cats. If you don’t want to get rid of the pet, seal them off from your bedroom. If they get in there even once a week, it can keep your allergies going.

Dust mites

Buy a dehumidifier – A dehumidifier helps with all of the airborne allergens, but is the most effective with dust mites. They don’t do well at humidities below 45%, the drier the better.

Replace your carpets with rugs
You can throw a rug into the wash and that will kill the mites in it. There is almost no way to kill the mites in a carpet. Mites can’t live very long on a polished floor.

Polyester pillows
These synthetic pillows can be washed at temperatures high enough to kill dust mites.

If you have a big problem with dust mites you might also consider wrapping your mattress in plastic.
