Although it is not always possible to avoid taking medication to control your allergies, you can sometimes alleviate the symptoms by using natural remedies. Here are a few natural remedies that may help you to lessen the severity of your allergy attacks.

Visit a Chiropractor
Regular visits to a chiropractor will help to keep you healthy and lessen the symptoms caused by your allergy. This is because the chiropractor will work on your nervous system. A healthy nervous system ensures your immune system is working at its best level. The stronger your immune system is the less chance you have of having a severe allergy attack. Regular visits to your chiropractor will help you to have a better quality of life.

Take Vitamins B5 and E
Vitamins can help you remain fit and lessen your chances of having an allergic reaction. Take vitamin B5 daily once you begin to feel the beginning of allergy symptoms. You can also try a course of vitamin E for four to six weeks during the months of the year when you are more susceptible to an allergy attack.. Have a Healthy Drink before Breakfast To help your intestinal track and your nasal passages, try five drops of castor oil that have been added to a glass of fruit juice or vegetable juice. Take this mixture once a day, before breakfast. The best vegetables to use in this mixture are one part beetroot juice to one part cucumber juice and three parts carrot juice. An alternative is to squeeze half of a lime into a glass of lukewarm water and add a teaspoon of honey. These drinks will help flush toxins out of your system.

Remedies that will help you cope with Hay Fever. If you suffer from hay fever, try drinking a mixture of honey and lemon juice three times a day.

A steam treatment may alleviate the symptoms of hay fever. Put a teabag (chamomile tea is very good for people who suffer from hay fever) into a bowl of boiling water. Lean over the bowl, placing your face as close to the rim of the bowl as you comfortably can. Place a bath towel over your head, so you can breathe in the steam.

Keep your Home as Dust Free as Possible
If you suffer from dust or dust mite allergies keep your home as free from dust as you can. Choose tiled or wooden floors in preference to carpets and roller blinds in preference to curtains or Venetian-style blinds. Air your bedding regularly. Use cotton blankets instead of wool blankets because cotton blankets are easy to launder, so they do not harbour as much dust as wool blankets.

Meditation and Yoga can help the Allergy Sufferer
If your allergy is stress related, try using meditation techniques or yoga to help control the severity of your allergy attacks. Deep breathing exercises or yoga poses such as “shoulder stand pose” may help ease an allergy attack.

Depending on the type of allergy you suffer from, and the severity of your attacks, natural remedies may help you to lead a more comfortable life. Natural remedies will do no harm and it is certainly worth giving these remedies a try.
