3 Ways to Fight Back Against Allergies

Still suffering from itchy, watery eyes? Still wondering why you find yourself sneezing all day long? Still disrupting others around you with that hacking cough? Even though we’re approaching the end of June and summer is officially here, thousands of people in the Twin Cities are still suffering from what they thought were “springtime” allergies. If you’re one of them, read below to find out what you can do to fight back:

  1. Hayfever: find yourself sneezing or scratching your eyes whenever you come in contact with pollen? Try eating a few spoonfuls of raw honey. Believe it or not, raw honey contains traces of pollen so it’ll help you gradually become accustomed.

  2. Algae: looking for a way to fight back against seasonal sniffles? Swap out your morning OJ with green drinks containing spirulina. This blue-green algae is a strong anti-inflammatory and can overcome your immune system’s response to allergy triggers.

  3. Spices: feeling congested? There’s not much worse than that if you ask us. Try adding some spice to your foods – it’ll help move mucus around by thinning it out which will break up congestion. Hot sauce, garlic and onions have been known to do the trick.

In addition to these home remedies, you may also want to look into improving the indoor air quality in your home. Poor IAQ can make your symptoms worse. And if you’re looking for an indoor air quality system, you’ve come to the right place!
