Simple Natural Remedies to Fight Spring Allergies

1] Ginger Tea :
 I have spoken in regards to Ginger many times on this website and I wish to remind readers that ginger offers a lot of protection and also healing when it comes to different types of allergies. Not only Ginger does have anti inflammatory properties but it also does have anti-histamine in it which it works really well against allergies including spring time.
To have Ginger either one can have just plain ginger in food or try having a warm Ginger tea. Look out for its recipe here.

2] Garlic:
BBC published recently published a news article in regards the use of Garlic and Common cold and how helpful can this common spice could be in such conditions both in preventing and healing.
Garlic like Ginger does have anti inflammatory powers that work magic when used to treat and prevent allergies. Have a clove of garlic and boost your immune system thus preventing from such allergen attack. Choose either to have some garlic in cooking or just raw garlic both would do the trick.

3] Steam:
Hot steam with hot water and small amount of eucalyptus oil is the recipe of choice of my grandmother during such allergy attack. Eucalyptus is well known to work as anti bacterial and as a decongestant which is why it helps a lot in treating spring allergies. Try when having a congested nose and see how much better you can feel with such steam.

4] Boosting your Immune System:
For all those who suffer and are suffering with spring allergies it is very important that they should also concentrate on boosting their immune system. Fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, fresh meat and meat products can help a lot. Avoid eating food that is frozen or cooked prior. Seasonal fruits like Apples, Papaya, Orange, and Amala can give a good boost to your immune system.

Other than all the said natural easy homemade remedies herbal remedies like Nasya really give a good boost to protect and treat from Spring Allergies. Visit your local Ayurvedic Consultant to know more about this treatment.
