Fight Allergies Naturally by the Farmer's Almanac
Here are a few home remedy to help you clear the air:
" Apple cider vinegar" Drinking about two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in
an 8 oz. glass of water once every day, either all year, or just during allergy
season, can help to slow the production of the histamines that create allergic
" Local honey" Eating honey made by local bees can help alleviates allergy
symptoms because it is made from the same plants causing the allergic reaction.
Taking in a small amount of the allergen works just like a vaccine, helping your
immune system build antibodies against it.
" Lime" A Half a lime into a glass of lukewarm water and sweetened with a
teaspoon of honey flushes the system of toxins from allergens. Drink this
mixture once daily, first thing in the morning.
"Chamomile tea" Recognized throughout the world as a natural antihistamine,
one or two daily cups of chamomile tea, sweetened with honey, can provide
immunity toward many common allergens.
"Garlic" Another good natural antihistamine is garlic. Incorporating it into
meals will not only help fight allergy symptoms, it also adds a flavor boost to
many popular dishes.
