Three natural ways to avoid allergy symptoms

Now that it's autumn, many allergy sufferers are looking for relief. Ragweed pollen is the most common culprit this time of year, but mold from damp leaves and dying plants also contribute to many uncomfortable symptoms.

Fortunately, there are non-medicated ways to support your immune system and avoid severe allergy symptoms:

1. Use proper posture

Improper posture causes extra tension on the nervous system. This makes your nervous system overactive, so your body has a greater tendency to overreact to allergens that are found in the environment.

2. Eat local, raw honey

Eating local, raw honey will give you a micro-dose to allergens. Over time, your body will become accustomed to the allergens and will be less likely overreact and produce too many histamines. Histamines cause the inflammation which makes your eyes and throat swell.

Other foods that combat allergy symptoms include: apples, turmeric, strawberries, coconut milk yogurt, pumpkin seeds.

3. Get chiropractic care

Chiropractic care also relieves pressure from the nervous system by correcting spinal misalignments. This way, your body won't overreact to the allergens you encounter in your day to day life, and you can breathe easier.
