Allergy Season

Man Blowing Nose into Tissue

My allergies are the worst they have ever been this year.

I went to my doctor for suggestions of natural remedies and she suggested local honey, which I’ve taken in daily tablespoon doses before. Honey is probably the best tasting medicine in the world. She also suggested nettle.

So I went to The Natural Food Store in Niantic–it’s still one of my favorite health food stores, and they are very helpful. (If you know of any Hartford-area health food stores I’m open to trying somewhere more local.) In Niantic they recommended a pill that is a combination of quercetin, nettle and bromelain (all plant based). I started taking it an had relief by the next morning. I still have mild allergy symptoms–a tickle in my throat, but the itchy eyes, post nasal drip, sore throat, and swollen eye lids are all gone.

You should always talk to your doctor before you try something new in your body, but if you are suffering from allergies, these natural remedies might be good suggestions to bring up at your next doctor’s visit.
