Time for a Little Relief?

 Time for a Little Relief? Ahh…AHHH…CHOOO! It's hard to escape allergy season. Everywhere you go, people are sneezing, coughing or suffering with runny noses and sinus headaches. These little irritations are enough to keep you home instead of out enjoying yourself at the park, playing golf, or taking a walk by the beach. The knee-jerk response is to take antihistamines, but there are natural  remedies you can opt for instead: 1. Become more mindful of your stress level. Allergies often emerge  because the body has little margin to handle additional stress. 2. Try a hot towel. Place a hot towel on your face (of course, not too hot)  and sit with it covering your forehead and nasal area. Relax for a few  minutes as the heat breaks up mucus in your sinuses. 3. Using essential oils are a great way of helping with hay fever/ seasonal allergy symptoms. Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint oils either taken as a supplement (Doterra TriEase soft gels are very effective) or by diffusing into the air is a great way to help combat those symptoms.  4. Honey- By introducing pollen to your body early, before hay fever season, you could help your body develop a sort of protection to the allergies that the pollen creates. Honey might help to desensitise your body, lessening your hay fever symptoms.  It is reported that using locally-produced honey has a much higher chance of providing relief and support from hay fever, given that it is made from foliage that can be found all around you and is the cause of your hay fever. Try taking small daily amounts before you usually start to suffer from hay fever and see if it helps.   5. Chiropractic- consider an adjustment to help your nervous system better accommodate allergies. Image may contain: 1 person, plant, tree, flower, nature and outdoor
