Are you constantly struggling with headaches, sniffles and exhaustion?

You might be unknowingly allergic to some substances and particles, and sometimes drugstore remedies can induce rebound symptoms. But don’t worry, we’ve got some cure.

Luckily, there are some natural fixes you can try that can speed up the relief, stave off allergy episodes and avoid recurrence.

Air Purifier

An air purifier is probably one of the best investments you could buy for your health. Whether it is an indoor or outdoor allergy, you breathe easier when common irritants such as pollen, dust and molds are filtered out of the air you breathe. All that sneezing, coughing, wheezing and dripping can exhaust your immune system and what better way to avoid that than to keep your home free from irritants.

Eucalyptus oil

It has properties that will immediately soothe your allergy symptoms. It has eucalyptol, a compound in that quells inflammation of mucous membranes and loosens congestion in airways. This plant extract is so potent that simply inhaling its scent can deliver allergy relief that will last for  several hours. Add four drops of the oil to a humidifier or bowl of hot water and allow the scent to diffuse throughout your bedroom or your living room.

Natural Saline Solution

It’s true what they say about beaches and the sea. If you feel sick, you just to spend some time in the beach and you will be relieved. Sea salt dries out the sinuses naturally . If you’re far from the beach, you can also buy a sea salt water nasal spray at a local heath food store to clear out pollen, dust and other allergens from your nasal passages. Or you can make one yourself. Just mix an 8-ounce squirt bottle with a teaspoon of salt water and use to irrigate irritated nasal passages.

Try gargling with sea salt and warm water to ease throats irritated by post-nasal drip and inflammation.

Apple cider

Not only could ou use apple cider vinegar  for cooking, it also has various health benefits. It can decrease mucus generation and will clear up runny noses caused by colds. Just mix 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in a 8 ounce glass of warm water and drink, repeating at least 3 times a day.

Spicy Food.

Spicy foods  have anti-inflammatory properties that can ease inflamed breathing passages and decrease post-nasal drip and congestion. So, next time you see them, don’t be afraid of cayenne pepper, onion, garlic, fenugreek and ginger. They also help boost the immune system and keep hay fever from turning into a sinus infection or cold.

Mangosteen and its juice

Mangosteen and its  juice is becoming more and more popular because it contains antioxidants, xanthones and other phytonutrients necessary to improve the immune system as well as supports cardio vascular health. It provides a natural support for combatting infections, inflammation, fever, fatigue, heart and circulatory and cardio vascular health concerns.
Ensure that you get the juice without nay artificial flavoring. It can be pricey but a bottle will last you long by limiting your intake to 1 oz twice a day.
Fruits 
Try to have two to four servings of grapes, apples, oranges or other fruits everyday. These can reduce risk of hay fever and wheezng by 60%  because fruits are packed with a bevy of antioxidants that repair and thwart free-radical damage in the lungs. They make the organs more resistant to allergenic substances.

Lots and lots of fluids

Take lots of fluid everyday, especially water. Extra fluids will help thin out mucus in the body. Avoid too much caffeine (for example, in sodas and coffee) as it may cause dehydration. Milk or juice are good choices too, but water will always be the best choice for fluids.

More and more water

Bathe before going to bed. Electrostatic charges naturally found in human hair are a magnet for atmospheric pollen. When this particles rub off onto pillows and sheets,this can spell trouble at bedtime. You may wake up with allergic symptoms the next day. A little soap and water will remove even the clingiest pollen particles.

Natural is always the best way to go.
