Natural Remedies for allergies + new facial!

allergy season is here…

although, if you’re a chronic sufferer, you know that allergies can be a multi-season affair. So, what’s the best way to beat and balance allergies naturally? Herbal remedies have been used throughout history to calm the sniffles, sneezing and itching related to allergies and rarely have significant side effects when used appropriately at suggested doses.  Just remember, as with all good things, moderation is key; only treat the symptoms you’re currently experiencing and be consistent for the best results

  • Some of the herbs used to treat hay fever symptoms are as follows:
  • Dong quai (Angelica sinensis) – Used as an antihistamine and anti-inflammatory.
  • Eyebright (Euphrasia officinalis) – Reduces congestion and secretions. It is good for itchy eyes, sneezing, and excess mucus.
  • Gingko (Gingko biloba) – Contains bioflavonoids and is used as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
  • Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) – Helps reduce allergic, inflammatory, and histaminic reactions and supports liver function.
  • Red clover (Trifolium pratense) – Helps build the body’s resistance to allergies.
  • Stinging nettles (Urtica dioica) – Used as an antihistamine and anti-inflammatory.
  • Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) – Reduces congestion and secretions.

Make a tea of one herb or a combination of herbs. Take 3 to 4 cups a day. If the herbs are in tincture form, combine several of them and take 1 -3 dropper 3 to 4 times a day.Occasionally, an herb at the prescribed dose causes stomach upset or headache. This may reflect the purity of the preparation or added ingredients, such as synthetic binders or fillers. For this reason, it is recommended that only high-quality products be used.
