We may be having what feels like a slow start to spring this year, but you can bet there will be pollen flying around like crazy very soon. Read on for tips on how to get relief from spring allergies.
#1: Start Taking Medication for Allergies Now
Allergy medication often works best when it’s taken before your allergies start to flare up. Check with your healthcare provider to be certain, but take advantage of the slow ramp-up to spring to curb your allergy symptoms before they begin if possible.
#2: Try in a Neti Pot
If you haven’t yet tried a neti pot, there’s no time like the present. This device helps flush irritants and allergens out your sinuses. It’s best to use distilled water or a saline solution.
#3: Give Herbal Remedies a Shot
Assuming you don’t have any contraindications, natural remedies like quercetin and nettle leaf might help reduce allergy symptoms. Nettle leaf reduces the body’s ability to produce histamine, and quercetin helps reduce inflammation. Start taking these pre-emptively along with your allergy medication if you get the go-ahead from your healthcare provider.
#4: Invest in Your Gut Health with Probiotics
Whether you get them from yogurt, kombucha or via a supplement, there’s basically no downside to probiotics and a huge upside. Your gut is where your immune system gets its strength, so making sure it’s as healthy as can be will help your allergies along with your overall health.
