Natural Remedies to Alleviate Your Allergy Symptoms

How long do allergy symptoms last?

Seasonal allergy symptoms will typically last several weeks, or as long as the allergen is airborne. Depending on conditions, allergy seasons may last longer, causing symptoms to be prolonged. Indoor allergens can be present year-round and may require further methods to reduce the allergen presence.

There are various over-the-counter allergy treatments available, but what if you are looking for something more natural? Fortunately, there are natural remedies that some people have reported relieve some of their symptoms. Keep in mind, these methods aren’t proven by any means, but some people have been able to alleviate some of their allergy symptoms using them.

It’s also a good idea to run any new treatments by your doctor. They might have suggestions or recommendations that could work better for you. Also, if you’re using allergy treatments that are working, you shouldn’t stop using these altogether. It’s better to wean yourself off them if the natural treatments are working for you.

With that in mind, we’ll explore some of the remedies that might work for you.

Are You an Allergy Sufferer?

Before delving into the world of natural allergy remedies, you should make sure you actually suffer from allergies. Typically, it’s easy enough to self-diagnose allergies. The symptoms are fairly universal, and they usually only appear during certain seasons (unless they’re indoor allergies). If you’re unsure if allergies are causing your irritation, you can always get a test. Even if you’re certain that allergies are the source of your issues, it’s worthwhile to find what specifically you’re allergic to.

Common Symptoms

The easiest way to determine if you’re suffering from allergies is by knowing the symptoms and determining if those symptoms are something you deal with regularly.

Here are some of the symptoms you might expect with allergies:

  • Sneezing
  • Coughing or wheezing
  • Itchy or watery eyes
  • Swelling around the eyes
  • Hives or skin rashes
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Scratchy throat
  • Congestion

These don’t necessarily make allergies a certainty, but it’s more likely that allergies are your problem if you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms.

How to Get Rid of Your Allergies

If you’re looking to rid yourself of allergies, there are a variety of treatment options. Medications can be used to alleviate symptoms. There are also preventive measures you can take to reduce exposure. For additional relief, you may want to consider homeopathic treatment options instead.

Homeopathic Treatment Options

Homeopathic treatment options introduce small doses of an allergen to your system so your body can learn that it isn’t a threat. These treatments are administered over time and increased incrementally. During homeopathic treatment, you may find relief and decreased symptoms. Some patients even find permanent relief by the time treatment ends. However, a clinically-proven, holistic solution like sublingual immunotherapy with  Wyndly is the best way to find lifelong allergy relief.

More Ways to Find Natural Allergy Relief

If you’re looking for natural allergy relief solutions before trying other treatments, the following are some of the most common options people have used before.

Air filters

Perhaps one of the simplest solutions is to buy an air filter for your home. HEPA filters, or high-efficiency particulate air filters, can filter out pollen, dust, dander, and other potential allergens.

Nasal irrigation

It’s easy for pollen to stick to the mucus in your nasal passage. By cleansing your nasal passage with a neti pot or a saline irrigator, you can potentially relieve some sinus-related symptoms.

Herbal remedies

Several herbs and foods can help reduce histamine response and swelling related to allergies. Butterbur in particular is a popular option. Bromelain, which is naturally found in papayas and pineapples, is another option. There’s also quercetin, which can be found in broccoli, citrus fruits, green tea, onions, and apples.

Locally sourced honey

Many people swear by consuming locally sourced honey when allergy season rolls around. The idea is that your body will get used to the pollen in the honey that your local bees have collected.

Probiotics

Allergies can often be attributed to certain imbalances in the body. Probiotics are specifically designed to balance your gut flora, so it’s worth a try to help with your allergies.

Acupuncture

Some patients report that acupuncture is another way to treat certain ailments, so it may be able to help with your allergy symptoms.

Essential oils

Some patients report that certain essential oils may help with inflammation. Peppermint, eucalyptus, basil, and tea tree oils may bring you some benefit.

Exercise

Having a regular exercise schedule could help you reduce your allergy symptoms.

Are There Any Risks That Come With Natural Treatment?

Most natural treatments are generally pretty safe and low-risk, and if they bring you any sort of relief, they can be worthwhile. However, it’s important to note that natural treatments should never be used to treat anaphylaxis, which is a severe allergic reaction. Those experiencing anaphylaxis need immediate, urgent medical treatment.

Do Home Remedies for Seasonal Allergies Work?

While home remedies for seasonal allergies can bring you some measure of relief, they often don’t provide true and complete relief from your symptoms. If true relief is what you’re seeking, Wyndly can help. We provide you with a personalized treatment plan and one-on-one support from an allergy doctor who will walk you through the best way to get rid of your symptoms.

When to See a Doctor

If you can’t find any relief from your allergy symptoms, it’s a good idea to see a doctor. Of course, if you’re having severe allergic reactions, you should always seek out medical care right away.

Doctors can confirm your symptoms are the result of allergies, and they can help you identify the specific allergens causing you problems. Wyndly makes meeting with a dedicated doctor convenient for your schedule. Meet with one of our allergy doctors to get a personalized treatment plan to help you beat your allergies.

The Best Natural Way To Fix Your Allergies

Homeopathic treatment options can be effective to a point, but they are ultimately a temporary fix and they don’t always work for everyone. Wyndly, on the other hand, provides a naturalistic and holistic way to fix your allergies for decades.

Using sublingual immunotherapy, also known as allergy drops, you can introduce your allergen triggers to your system with gradually increasing dosages. Your body will learn to adapt to these allergens and bring you long-term relief. Allergy drops work similarly to allergy shots, but they don’t require a doctor visit or the use of painful needles. They can simply be taken under the tongue while at home.
