Spring Allergy

Spring is in the air and flowers are blossoming all across North India.

But are you having difficulties in breathing or have runny nose or watery eyes and other bothersome symptoms? Then these blooming flowers are to blame. The biggest spring allergy trigger is pollen. Trees, grasses, and weeds release these tiny grains into the air to fertilize other plants. When they get into the nose of someone who’s allergic, they send the body’s defenses out of order.
The immune system mistakenly sees the pollen as a danger and releases antibodies that attack the allergens. That leads to the release of chemicals called histamines into the blood. Histamines triggers runny nose, itchy eyes, and other symptoms.

Symptoms: You may have

• Runny nose
• Watery eyes
• Sneezing
• Coughing
• Itchy eyes and nose

Tips to manage allergies naturally:

1. Limit your outdoor time and wear mask while going out
2. Clean your house and change bedsheets frequently
3. Take a bath after coming home
4. Take steam to clear the nasal passage
5. Eat probiotics
6. Studies show that saline nasal irrigation had beneficial effects for both children and adults with allergic rhinitis
7. Practitioners of natural medication suggest taking 2 ,000 milligrams of vitamin C daily to reduce histamine levels.
8. Studies show that peppermint oil treatment had enough anti- inflammatory effects that reduced the symptoms of bronchial asthma and allergic rhinitis
9. Advocates of natural healing suggest using eucalyptus oil as an antimicrobial agent by adding it to each load of wash during allergy season
10. Please speak to your doctor for medication

Don’t use home remedies to treat severe allergic reactions which can be identified by symptoms such as:
• Trouble breathing
• Tightness in the lungs
• Chest pains
• Blood pressure changes
• Dizziness
• Fainting
• Rash
• Vomiting
