home remedies allergic rhinitis

Apple Cider vinegar (ACV)…

This is definitely our first choice. Boosting your immune system is the single most important thing you can do to successfully treat and cure your allergies. And 80% of your immune system is actually located in your gut, so by getting your gut healthy, you will naturally get your immune system healthy! Even Ancient Chinese Medicine agrees with this. They believe that allergies are almost always related to gut and intestinal problems, so once you remedy this, you remedy annoying seasonal allergies such as hay fever or allergic rhinitis.

So how does apple cider vinegar actually fit into this? Well, ACV is a very powerful gut healer and immune booster. It also helps to promote the growth of “friendly” bacteria (probiotics) in the gut, which is another excellent home remedy for all types of allergies (our #2 pick in fact). Apple cider vinegar is also rich in potassium and magnesium. A deficiency of both these minerals has been linked to seasonal allergies and even asthma. In addition to this, ACV helps to soothe the lungs and bronchial walls and break down phlegm.

Good Bacteria (Probiotics)…

This remedy follows on from apple cider vinegar. As you now know, probiotics are essential for gut health and immune health. Without enough beneficial bacteria growing and thriving in the digestive system, the bad (and the very bad) bacteria take over and intoxicate your body. They literally infect your organs by releasing powerful and extremely toxic “buds” into your blood stream. The immune system quickly becomes overwhelmed when under this severe form of duress and many health experts even believe that allergies (including food allergies) may be the result of this immunity breakdown (this is just speculation and hasn’t been confirmed yet).

Eat Locally Produced Honey…

It’s thought that regularly eating honey that’s produced in your local area helps you to build up an immunity against the very pollen (birch pollen) you’re exposed to that’s causing your allergy symptoms. However, many so-called “health experts” believe this theory is nothing but a load of crock. The problem for the experts though is when allergy sufferers do have authentic local honey (at least 1 tablespoon daily) their allergy symptoms improve. And even a published study back in 2011 was able to add some critical evidence to this growing belief…
