Natural Approaches to Managing Seasonal Allergies

It’s that time of year again – allergy season! A time when many struggle to relieve their symptoms of sneezing, running nose, itchy eyes and blocked sinuses. Most seasonal allergies are caused by pollens found in outdoor plants and they create a miserable reaction for those who are exposed, which can last for several weeks.

While allergy sufferers often resort to over-the counter antihistamines such as nasal steroid sprays and pills, these remedies only last a few hours and can often cause uncomfortable side effects. But there are other, more natural ways to combat the symptoms of seasonal allergies.  Consider the following options:

Fresh air and exercise. A brisk walk in the cool night air can do wonders for helping to clear sinuses and giving you a refreshing feeling before bedtime for a more restful sleep.

Nasal saline spray. Saline sprays contain a simple mixture of water and salt and can be found in any drug store.

Reduce dairy intake. Dairy has been linked to sinus congestion and may also worsen existing allergy symptoms. Reduce your intake to minimize your symptoms.

Nutritional supplements. There are a wide variety of natural supplements available that can help boost your immune system and provide a barrier against seasonal allergic reactions.
