Diet to alleviate allergy symptoms

bless you

Millions of people suffer from seasonal, environmental allergies. And being spring, allergies are starting to take their toll. Some people might experience the never-ending runny nose. Others endure the stuffy sinus to sinus infection to bronchial infection cycle. Scratchy eyes, itchy skin. General discomfort. And a sense of powerlessness against the pollen.

There are plenty of over the counters which work with varying effectiveness and the occasional, undesirable side effect. More and more you are having to show identification when you buy these medications which always makes one think twice about the contents of the little box you are handed.

This year, you might want to try diet to help with allergens. “Using nature-based products can be a very useful way to handle mild allergies and a useful adjunct for more significant allergies, and there are many type of treatments you can safely try,” according to Mary Hardy, MD, director of integrative medicine at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Start with clear broth soup. While chicken soup has long been recommended for illness, it’s actually the broth that helps to hydrate and lubricate the body, clearing nasal passages and preventing stuffy noses.

Spicy food also impacts the body in a positive way. Think about it: ever eat a spicy curry or hot salsa and experience a runny nose? Clear it out with a spicy food. Raising the body temperature is good for increasing the body’s defenses.

Reduce inflammation with foods high in omega-3. Salmon, tuna, icky sardines, beans and flax (whole or ground) will help reduce inflammation.
