How To Treat Hayfever Naturally

How To Manage Hay fever Naturally

On top of all the viruses and ‘super-flu’ going around lately, unfortunately a lot of us have to manage Hay fever symptoms as well.

With many of the symptoms overlapping those of a common cold or even a mild virus, it’s hard to work out the best ways to take care of yourself. Besides feeling physically worn out from the intense discomfort Hay fever is causing you, you’re likely mentally exhausted from the countless hours you’ve spent looking for ways to manage your symptoms. 

With all of that in mind, we’re here to help with tips on identifying symptoms and home remedies to help manage Hay fever naturally. As always, we recommend seeking out the advice of a medical professional before treating yourself. 

Hay fever Symptoms 

  • watery, itchy and/or red eyes
  • nasal congestion and sneezing
  • itchy nose, mouth and throat
  • swollen eyes or visible face irritation
  • irregular levels of fatigue and drowsiness
  • generally triggered by an allergic reaction

 Here’s 4 Tips On How To Manage Your Hayfever Naturally

  • Clean your environment, if you’re stuck indoors trying to rest up but your body still feels irritated you need to check your room for any potential allergen triggers. Common sources in the home include dust, dandruff from pets and pollen from an open window.
  • If you haven’t already, keep a journal of times your Hay fever has spiked and see if certain weather conditions align to your symptoms worsening. During days or seasons with a high pollen count, try and keep clothes washing/drying indoors where possible.
  • Your nasal pathways are likely swollen, so a great way to combat this is with herbs that have natural anti-inflammatory properties. The easiest way to do this is through homemade turmeric, ginger and honey tea. Turmeric and ginger will combat the inflammation whilst honey acts as a perfect antibacterial sweetener, it’s a cosy and effective remedy.
  • Lastly, avoid anything that's going to encourage excessive mucus and congestion such as dairy products, too much wheat or sugar and highly processed foods and beverages.
