These powerful little bulbs are also great allergy fighters, as they work as decongestants, helping to ease sneezes and sniffles. If you’re brave enough, crush them, leave them to sit for 10 to 15 minutes to release the active ingredients, before eating raw. Rather you than us…!
It’s the super food du jour, and turmeric helps prevent the release of histamine, one of the main causes of hay fever. It’s also an anti-inflammatory, so this spectacular spice can ease the symptoms as well as fight them from the onset.
When making a herbal tea or infusion you should allow a rounded teaspoonful of dried herbs or double the quantity of fresh herbs per mug or large cup (unless otherwise stated).

How does local honey help allergies?

Hay fever is a sign of imbalance in the immune system and often causes a significant disruption in the life of a sufferer. Allergic conditions generally respond quite well to homeopathy and treatment during an allergy attack can show amazing results, often bringing relief for the rest of the current season. Hay fever can be quite persistent, returning year after year, and we can only stop this cycle with constitutional treatment from a professional homeopath when the sufferer is not in the throws of fighting off the acute attack. Certain remedies have been shown to work well when hay fever is at a peak and are completely safe to use as they are free from side effects.
