Spring is beautiful weather that brings nice and sunny days. But with all the good things it brings, spring also brings allergies. The most common symptoms of seasonal allergies are sneezing, tearing eyes, dry and sore throat.
It is difficult to cope with spring allergies, but closing in four walls is not a cure for spring allergies. However there are many natural remedies that can ease your life and will help you enjoy sunny spring days.
Here are few of them…
Nettle acts as an antihistamine, which helps to calm allergy symptoms such as sneezing and itchy eyes. When you notice these symptoms, you should drink nettle tea.
The anti -- inflammatory properties of chamomile help to soothe dry eyes effectively and eliminates itchiness. Take two bags of cooled chamomile tea and hold on the eye for 3-5 minutes. Repeat this procedure several times a day.
Mint is an excellent natural remedy for the respiratory tract. The breathing is improved through inhalation with tea from fresh or dried mint leaves.
Thyme tea helps in the treatment of cough, breathlessness caused by allergies, and it also has a calming effect on sore throat.
Honey is a great remedy that relieves coughing and throat inflammation. One teaspoon of honey with any of the previously mentioned tea will be of great help.
Ginger relieves irritation of inflamed throat and is very powerful in combination with honey. Make a tea from fresh ginger, so in boiling water put 5 grams grated fresh ginger and leave it for 10 minutes to stand. Then strain it and add a teaspoon of honey. To alleviate the symptoms of allergy you can also use ginger powder.
- Hot/chili Pepper
Hot pepper is a rich source of bioflavonoids that prevent the release of histamine, quercetin and other chemicals that cause inflammation and allergic symptoms. So it is recommended to consume hot chili pepper everyday.
