My Natural Allergy Remedies

Without fail, every spring my 10-year old son Jackson gets slammed with allergies and I have to pull out my natural allergy remedies. The poor guy gets puffy eyes, insane amounts of boogers and the sneezes don’t stop. We’ve learned that Jackson is highly sensitive to oak pollen and in our Central Florida town there’s no escape from it. This year has been the worst and it’s even irritated my sinuses and covered our cars in a yellow dusting.

My Top 5 Natural Allergy Remedies

I’m not one to use medicine, I prefer the FARM-acy and toughing it out. When allergy season hits, I stock up on products + recipes that are gentle, natural and help us get through it. Here’s my go-to natural allergy remedies and products that we use:

1. Natural Eye Drops:

Unlike most over the counter eye drops, Similasa Allergy Eye Relief is formulated with natural active ingredients that stimulate the body’s natural allergy defenses. We keep the eye drops in the fridge and use as needed throughout the day.

2. Homeopathic Allergy Relief Tablets:

My friend Kathleen (the same one who got me into Bieler’s Broth) has gotten me into homeopathic medicine to treat many ailments… including allergies. The Boiron Sabadil Allergy Relief Homeopathic tablets are our go-to brand and have helped us out a ton.

3. Lemon Honey Ginger Tonic:

I always keep a jar of my DIY Lemon Honey Ginger Tonic in my fridge. This simple recipe works wonders for cold and flu season AND allergy season. You really can’t go wrong with it! You add a scoop to a cup of warm water and it soothes an itchy throat and reduces inflammation.  I recommend using local raw honey that has been harvested in the same season as your allergy flare up.

4. Allergy Fighting Smoothie:

We are all about a daily smoothie and this recipe is chock full of inflammation healers and allergy fighters. Again, if you can find local raw honey that was harvested in the same season as your allergy flare up, you’ll get the best results.
2 apples, green
1 cup of pineapple, frozen
2 teaspoon of local raw honey
1 to 2 cups of water
1 teaspoon grated ginger

5. Hot Showers + Laundry:

It’s important to keep the house clean and pollen free. We do that by sweeping and vacuuming as often as possible. Jackson also takes a shower when he gets home from school. I’ll throw his clothes in the wash and we say adios pollen. I should probably make the rest of us do that as well! We’re a shoe-free home, which means we drop our shoes by the front door. We don’t wear them inside the house and that helps with dirt, pollen and anything else that can be brought in through our shoes.

 


My Top 4 Natural Allergy Remedies | SimpleGreenSmoothies.comTypically doing a combination of these natural allergy relief things gets us through the 2-week allergy season. Yet if he has a severe flare up and this isn’t helping enough, I have given him Claritin. Yet the key for me is exhausting all of my natural options before using something like that.

 

Q: How do you survive allergy season?
