Home Remedies for Allergies

Spring has sprung! Many people suffer this time of year with sneezing, coughing, runny nose, and itchy eyes. Yup. Allergy season is kicking into full swing, and with so many over-the-counter options available, has anyone ever considered that there are also home remedies for allergies? Here are a few suggestions you can try incorporating at home to reduce allergy symptoms:

Home Remedies for Allergies

  • The severity of allergy symptoms can be lessened by some simple dietary changes such as removing food sensitivities, which help to reduce overall inflammation and allergic burden.
  • Spring cleaning of the house can help by getting rid of dust and dander that has built up.
  • Consider an indoor plant. They help to naturally clean the air.
  • If you or someone in your family is highly sensitive, you may consider looking into a HEPA filter air purifier.
  • The supplement BCQ contains a combination of bromelain, curcumin and quercitin. Together they provide powerful anti-inflammatory and antihistamine effects. N-Acetyl cysteine is also a natural allergy remedy through its action of thinning mucus. It is also a precursor to glutathione which is one of the body’s natural antioxidants.
  • Vitamin C, commonly found in fruits and vegetables, is well-known to support the immune system. It’s also a powerful antioxidant and antihistamine, making it a great natural remedy for allergies.
  • Probiotics – The basis for your immune system starts with proper gut health. Keep in mind allergies are an immune response. So when the immune system is strong, allergy symptoms can be better controlled.
  • Glutathione can also be used as a natural allergy preventive treatment. At the Wholeness Center, we offer IV Therapy where a custom blend of vitamins and minerals, such as glutathione, are painlessly given in the arm intravenously. IV Therapy bypasses the digestive system which allows the nutrients to go directly to the cells to promote optimal healing. To learn more about IV Therapy or to schedule a free consultation, please visit www.wholeness.com.

Research has shown that allergies can trigger an increase in anxiety as there is a connection between them. While the exact cause, or mechanism of action, is still undetermined, we have found that treating one can impact the other. If you have concerns with allergies and anxiety, please reach out to us or your doctor for other suggestions and to help you identify the cause.
