Spring Allergies Are Taking Over? These are 3 Common Mistakes to Avoid
By: meital   |    June 30, 2012   |   1 Comments (0) (0)

How can anyone hate the spring? Birds are chirping, flowers are blooming, nature flaunts all its beauty again and the darkness of winter is replaced by warm, sunny days.

Still, millions of people around the world hate the spring. This lovely season brings allergy-sufferers misery, with nonstop sniffles, sneezes and wheezes. Hay fever is probably the most common annoyance, with its awful symptoms of running nose, sneezing, congestion, itching eyes and ears, sleepiness, sinus pressure and fatigue.

desperately seeking for relief, allergy sufferers (like me) run to the nearest pharmacy and buy all sorts of pills and potions that promise to help them breathe again.

But just like with many other conditions, there isnít one cure that helps all, and you may find yourself trying (and failing) product after product, only to find no relief and an empty bank account.

To help you avoid this seasonís costly mistakes and prove to you that natural treatments are MORE effective and of course MORE healthy, I give you these five natural spring allergy remedies (and 3 mistakes to avoid):

3 Common Mistakes to Avoid

1. Popping Allergy Drugs Ė This is just my opinion, but choosing a OTC drug or prescription medication to fight spring allergies is a big mistake. Why take the risk of allergy drugs with their possible side effects and liver and kidney damage, instead of using natural treatments that work just the same? I made it a mission in my life not to fall in the big pharma companies traps and make them richer on my expense, while there are effective natural alternatives that are better for me and for the environment.

2. Not Knowing Your Allergies Ė Many people I know just assume they suffer from hay fever, but there are many other allergens can cause similar symptoms. Itís a good idea to see an allergist that will help you find out what exactly you are allergic for. Maybe itís not pollen you suffer from, it could be cockroaches or even cigarette smoke.

To combat almost all sorts of allergens, you should wash your bedding in hot water every two weeks to fight dust mites, use non-toxic pest managementagainst cockroaches and stop all use of synthetic fragrances. These can irritate your skin and they contain chemicals that were linked to hormone disruption and even neurological damage.

3. Allowing allergens in Your Home Ė If you already know that you suffer from hay fever, donít keep your windows open for ďfresh airĒ. Thatís just inviting pollen in. When you come back from outside, take a shower before you sit down on your couch. Pollen is worst at midday, itís a good idea to stay home at this time. Also, Grass pollen is a common summer allergen, so try not to torture yourself by mowing the grass.

I agree. Popping drugs is not the best option. If anything there are natural herbal alternative to man made pharmaceuticals.
