Preventing hay fever naturally
Preventing hay fever naturally

This year, hay fever symptoms seem to really be causing so many of us a great deal of trouble. It may be that the weather conditions have caused the ‘perfect storm’ as plants have grown very well due to the rainy conditions and then the sun followed – allowing them to produce more pollen than usual. There’s also some thought that because we have been in lockdown, our immune systems have down regulated as we have not become acclimatised to environmental allergens. Whatever the reason for the increase in symptoms, a natural approach is best. There are plenty of pharmaceutical options such as tablets, eyedrops and nasal sprays – however, these cause our defensive mucus membranes to dry up and this simply worsens the overall problem after providing a little immediate relief. Allergies are a holistic problem and should be treated as such, so please take a look at these common sense, yet proven to work strategies that we hope will provide you and yours with much needed relief from the misery that hay-fever causes.
