Overcome allergies with natural remedies

But not everything is so beautiful. Along with the joy and the approaching arrival of summer, the biggest enemies of many appear again: allergies.

What are the most common allergies and their symptoms?

The most common allergies are usually those caused by pollen, especially in plants such as olive trees or Arizona plants. These are followed by reactions to mites and dust that accumulate in humid places and on fabrics, in addition to mold and environmental fungi that also appear with humidity.

They also usually cause a decrease in energy, itching in the nose, eyes, throat and ears, as well as swelling of the eyelids. Some more severe allergies can cause other diseases such as asthma, rhinitis and conjunctivitis.

All these effects are aggravated by pollution, which makes some pollens more aggressive; due to climate change which reduces rainfall (so the air is not purified as often); and for the improvement in hygiene that has been coming since the last century, which helps to reduce exposure to these allergens and, therefore, our immune system responds less frequently to them.

If you tend to have a dry throat or itchy eyes, try changing your cleaning products: many of them have a lot of chemicals that promote these reactions.

Try limiting tobacco consumption (as it aggravates respiratory symptoms), alcohol and coffee.

Enough with the limitations: let's see what you can do.

  3. Stinging eyes: your best friend will be saline solution. Not only does it serve to decongest the nasal passages (like any other saline solution), but you can also apply a few drops to the eyes to relieve itching.

Take care of your diet. During spring, and especially during the peak season of allergies, it is essential to consume vegetables and fruits rich in vitamins C, B and E, as well as antioxidants . These minerals can also be found in nuts. Yogurts are a good option to consume probiotics.
