The science behind allergies:

Allergies are a reaction to something not right within your body. The body is unable to fully fight off the allergen with its own defenses so the body reacts with the release of histamines which lead to allergy symptoms.

Medication offers quick fixes to allergy symptoms, although they do not address the core issue.

The core issue is a weakened immune system that cannot properly fight off what the person is allergic to.

Why can medications be bad?

In many cases, medications can either weaken your immune system or make your allergies worse long-term while taking a ton of your hard-earned money.

Some negative facts on medications regarding allergies:

  • Fight the symptom, not the cause so you must keep buying medicines.
  • Can weaken the immune system.
  • Possibly cause imbalances in body PH causing a horde of issues.
  • Could kill off good bacteria (probiotics) in the gut.

Why all natural?

By fortifying the body’s defenses against allergens natural remedies have the power to get rid of allergies forever. My top eight all natural allergy relief remedies reinforce the immune system to fight allergens.

Added benefits of using natural cures include avoiding the negative effects of medication and saving you money. There are also few side effects if any associated with natural allergy cures.

Taking care of ourselves naturally gives the body what it needs to repair itself, bringing back balance so it can fight off the allergies efficiently.

In Depth Look At My All Natural Allergy Relief Remedies:

1. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is a godsend for a multitude of health issues. This is my favorite out of all of my natural allergy relief remedies. It has been most effective for me.

Apple cider vinegar can reduce mucous production and cleanse the lymphatic system. A strong lymphatic allows the body’s immune system to fight off current allergens instead of focusing on old allergens that are trapped in the lymphatic system. A clogged lymph system is a root cause of chronic allergies which I experienced for quite some time.

Most effective approach:

Bragg’s organic raw unfiltered and unpasteurized “with the mother” apple cider vinegar is the standard for healing. “With the mother” is important because it means that it contains beneficial bacteria.

What I do:

I take one teaspoon of ACV every night with my herbal tea and honey. Sometimes in the morning before breakfast, I will have a teaspoon in water or tea. If I am sick I consume about three teaspoons throughout the day.

2. Raw Organic Honey

By far the tastiest of my natural allergy relief remedies.

Raw honey contains bee pollen. Bee pollen is known to ward off allergies and boost immunity. By consuming raw honey people become less sensitive to plant pollen which is one of the main allergens that affect people.

You must be cautious though. Many honey brands only contain a small percentage of real honey and have been heated which destroys most of the pollen. I recommend finding a raw organic local honey retailer.

Most effective approach:

Consuming raw organic local honey is the best way to fight off allergies especially for the area in which you live. If you cannot get raw organic local honey for whatever reason I would recommend Manuka honey. Manuka honey is known for its healing properties even if it is not locally sourced.

What I do:

I use a local organic honey from a farm near me. I will take a tablespoon of the honey about an hour before I go to bed  mixed into a cold herbal tea or  right off the spoon.

3. Probiotics

Beneficial bacteria in the gut is related to a reduced occurrence of allergies. It is estimated that 80 percent of a person’s entire immune system is in the digestive tract.

Probiotics change the balance of good and bad bacteria in the intestines. This helps guard the immune system against acting up in response to allergens.

In the United States, there is a major probiotic problem. Pharmaceuticals, most notably, antibiotics destroy probiotics within the body. Along with this, non-organic foods can destroy beneficial probiotics in the gut due to the use of pesticides.

Most effective approach:

All natural probiotic supplementation and regular consumption of organic probiotic rich foods.

Opt for organic probiotic rich foods including like:

  • Yogurt/Raw cheese
  • Kefir
  • Sauerkraut
  • Kimchi
  • Pickles
  • Microalgae
  • Kombucha

There are much more probiotic rich foods you can choose from. Listed above are common ones.

What I do:

I regularly add probiotics into my diet. One thing I do is keep a jar of sauerkraut in the refrigerator and eat a little bit every day. I also love raw cheeses and eat them almost every day with my dinner or as a snack. I also have a protein powder, super green powder and vitamin supplement that all contain probiotics.

4. Garlic

Garlic is an anti-histamine superfood that works as a powerhouse in the fight against allergies. It can help the immune system by attacking allergens and helping to remove them from the body naturally. Furthermore, garlic contains antioxidants and healing oils that help the immune system to fight against histamine.

Garlic can help get rid of allergic reactions like sneezing or an itchy throat and more while safeguarding the body from future allergic reactions.

Most effective approach:

Consuming uncooked raw organic garlic is the most effective way to gain the most benefit to fight allergies.

What I do:

I would recommend mincing about two uncooked cloves of garlic and mixing with raw organic honey for a fast acting relief against allergies.

Uncooked and raw is the best way to consume garlic for allergies, although I also use garlic while I cook. Getting dried organic garlic or chopping cloves up is a tasty addition to almost any meal.

5. Lemon

Lemons are packed with vitamin C which is needed by immunity cells. Strong levels of Vitamin C can boost the immune system. Also, lemons are loaded with antioxidants which can help fight off allergic reactions.

Lemons can also help with lymph function and hydration. Another key benefit of lemons is helping to balance the PH level in the body. A balanced alkaline PH is a key to proper immune function.

Most effective approach:

Drinking lemon juice is recommended for allergy relief.

What I do:

I add lemon juice to warm water in the morning. Usually, I squeeze half of a lemon in water and drink it in the morning. I also use lemon while cooking or I will put some lemon juice in tea.

6. Turmeric

Turmeric contains curcumin. Curcumin acts as a natural decongestant. Turmeric also acts as a powerful anti-histamine which helps reduce histamine release.

Furthermore, turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties. One key anti-inflammatory property is that turmeric acts as a leukotriene inhibitor which is related to allergy induced asthma problems.

Most effective approach:

Turmeric is sold in powder like a spice or you can buy the root and make the powder yourself. If you do use the spice try to find the organic non-irradiated spice. Irradiation can degrade the national benefits in the turmeric.

What I do:

I have an organic non-irradiated turmeric spice that I use almost every day. You can use it to make a nice turmeric glaze over chicken or fish while cooking. I also use turmeric when I stir fry vegetables. Sometimes I put turmeric in my daily herbal tea to add some flavor.

7. Quercetin

Quercetin is a natural bioflavonoid herb that helps to stabilize cells and helps to prevent the release of histamine. In addition, quercetin is an antioxidant that can help allergy-related inflammation.

Quercetin is naturally found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and citrus foods like oranges. However, foods generally do not contain enough quercetin to relieve allergies from the foods alone with just the quercetin in them. Because of this people take quercetin supplements to get enough of it to stop allergies.

Most effective approach:

A quercetin supplement.

What I do:

I don’t take a quercetin supplement. I do consume a lot of cruciferous and citrus vegetables every day so I do consume some quercetin. If I were to suddenly get my allergies back I would try a supplement of quercetin.

8. Nasal Irrigation (Neti Pot)

Nasal irrigation is the process of flushing out the nasal cavity. You take a warm saline solution and drain it through a nostril and then drain the solution out of the other nostril. Commonly used for this is a “neti pot”.

A Neti pot allows the user to easier breathe through their nose easier because the solution flushes out irritants and thins out mucus. This typically leads to less congestion and milder allergies.

Tiny, hair structures called cilia line the nasal cavity. Cilia functions to get mucus out of the nose. Nasal irrigation helps cilia work efficiently to get rid of unwanted allergens in the nasal cavity.

A proper neti pot solution includes:

  1. Water – Distilled, sterile, tap water that has been boiled for 3-5 minutes
  2. Salt – A pre-made solution or quarter to half a teaspoon of non-iodized salt and a small pinch of baking soda if you want. It is recommended to use sea or kosher salt.

What I do:

When I use the neti pot the instant relief of allergies is incredible. I have not used a neti pot for quite some time. I will if my allergies ever flare up again.

That’s not all:

The struggle against allergies does not end with effective natural allergy relief remedies. They are key to fixing an allergy problem, although many other things in life can help.

Additional things that I do to help with allergies include:

  • Air filter in bedroom
  • Exercise frequently
  • I will not eat processed, Genetically modified, or non-Organic foods
  • Drink about a gallon of water per day
  • Nighttime cold tea usually with lemon, ACV, and Raw honey
  • Whole-food organic vitamin
  • Low sugar intake

The hardest experience for me was the drastic diet change. In today’s America eating all organic and non-processed is tough. Becoming allergy free is no easy task with the toxic and allergy-inducing food surrounding us.

I believe that anyone can get rid of allergies forever!  With enough motivation and ambition anything is possible.
