    Thanks so much for these tips! I have bad allergies and often the antihistamines simply don’t work after a while, or cause their own set of problems.
    I never considered the fact their might actually be natural remedies to help!
    One thing that might ease allergy symptoms , is fish oil (omega 3 and 6) which has anti-inflammatory properties, amongst other health benefits (improving ldl to hdl fat ratios in your blood, reducing cholesterol, improved memory function). Also liquorice which boosts your natural adrenal output (cortisol) which reduces your inflammation – don’t take it every day though as it acts as a mild laxative :)

    I tell you, I’ve been looking everywhere for straight answers to fighting allergies. I finally found it on your site! Thank You. All of this makes so much sense. All I kept hearing from the doctors was that allergies were largely due to a low immune system, so, naturally, I thought “if this is so, wouldn’t it stand to reason to then try to boost my immune system, instead of taking some drug that makes me feel like crap?” I believe that God provided everything that our bodies need to be healthy right here on earth…in nature! So, again, thank you so much for taking the time to share with those of us who have been searching for something better!

    Dan and Raechelle, thanks for commenting and for reading. Dan, the fish oil tip is a good idea. Raechelle, I agree with what you’re saying — our bodies are fantastic, efficient machines, and if we give them the right fuel they are capable of wonders. Plus all medicine has its origin in nature, so it stands to reason, as you say!

    Another good remedy is locally produced honey. One or two teaspoons a day (straight is better, but also works in tea or coffee) seem to immunize you against hayfever-type symptoms. Don’t really know the science behind it, but it works — give it a week or two.

    Mangosteen. This is considered a “superfruit,” but unless you get fresh mangosteen, it’s probably useless against your allergic rhinitis
