Allergy season can be the worst time of year for people who suffer from allergies. The constant itching, sneezing, and runny nose can make one desperate for relief. So of course turning to drugs for that relief is the normal thing to do. But allergy medicines can come with side effects and are ultimately toxic for your body. Below are 3 natural allergy remedies to try at home.
Drink or eat things that contain quercetin
One natural allergy remedy is a little substance called quercetin. It is a natural antihistamine, which means it will help prevent allergy symptoms. Quercetin can be found in things such as black tea, apples, and red wine. It can even be taken as a pill; however this should not be taken in conjunction with other medications so consult a physician first.
Apple Cider Vinegar hair rinse
Even if you are washing your hair with shampoo, pollen and other debris can get stuck in your hair, which will prevent those allergic reactions from leaving. Rinsing your hair with a half cup of apple cider vinegar and half cup of water twice a week is an amazing natural allergy remedy. It can really help to remove any allergens stuck in your hair.
Vitamin C is a natural antihistamine, which means it will help reduce sneezing and a runny nose, therefore being a great natural allergy remedy! Eating fruits and veggies such as: papaya, red bell peppers, oranges, broccoli, kale, etc. are natural sources of Vitamin C. This of course can also be taken as a supplement.
