Allergy season has been upon many sufferers since February this year, but an early start doesn’t necessary mean an early finish. Here are some things you can do to ease your allergy symptoms and lessen your suffering:
1. Reduce exposure to allergens in your home. Dusting and vacuuming regularly can help to get rid of allergens such as pet hair, dust, pollen and pollutants.
2. Rinse your nasal passages. Irritants can be rinsed out of your nasal passages using a warm saline solutions.
3. Drink tea. Histamines are released in an allergic reaction. Green tea and chamomile tea both contain natural antihistamines that can help.
4. Avoid foods that irritate the immune system. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, foods that produce mucus and dampness can exacerbate allergies. Those foods include dairy, too many cold and raw foods, and too much simple sugar. With these things in mind, you can see that ice cream is definitely something to avoid.
