Natural Ways to Fight Allergies

Allergies are a PAIN (duh)! I basically am allergic to everything – grass, pollen, dogs, cats, eggs ,soy, wheat – to name a few.

So I can definitely relate to you when you say the struggle is REAL with allergy season. Cottonwood is flying and pollen is everywhere. There are obviously medications to take when you need them.. like bendaryl, but hellooo hangover?! Am I the only one who feels drugged up for at least 24 hours after taking some allergy meds?

Below are a few NATURAL remedies for the allergy struggle. Try them out and let us know what you think!

  • Turmeric Tea – I SWEAR by this tea. Whether it be allergies or a cold or a sinus infection, it works wonders. I always feel better within a couple of days of drinking this 2-3 times per day. Just boil 1 cup almond milk, 1 tbsp turmeric, 1 tsp black pepper, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp ginger, 1 tsp honey. Voila!
  • Vitamin C/Zinc – RIGHT when you start feeling sick, chug some vitamin C or a Zinc supplement! It’ll boost your immune system and help you get better quickly. Zicam is a great OTC “med” that has all natural vitamins!
  • Local Honey – Local honey can help diminish allergy symptoms! Just add some into your tea (or turmeric tea), or just take a spoonful!
