Herbs and Supplements for Allergies

Flowers are blooming and the grass is growing which means pollen is all around and the scent of freshly mowed grass fills the air. These wonderful signs of summer also mean allergies are in full force for some of you. Most often when seasonal allergies strike, we reach for the Claritin or the Allegra, but you can save yourself a trip to the pharmacy with these natural allergy-busters to keep the sniffling, sneezing, and watery eyes at bay.

Raw Local Honey: Sourcing local and adding local honey into your regular diet will allow your body to develop an immunity to the naturally occurring pollen and irritants in your area.

Echinacea: The Echinacea herb has a strong ability to stimulate your immune system to fight off infections. It is a natural antibiotic, as well as being a disinfectant, anti fungal and one of the best antiviral herbs.

Stinging Nettle: Stinging nettle’s anti-inflammatory and anti-histamine qualities affect a number of key receptors and enzymes in allergic reactions, preventing symptoms when or before they first appear. Stinging nettle can be used in tea form, cooked, used as topical extract oil, or found in capsule form.

Allerplex: Allerplex with Vitamin A and C supports the body’s ability to handle seasonal, environmental, and dietary changes. Allerplex supports the body’s natural ability to manage mucus movement. Allerplex also supports healthy liver, lung, and respiratory function.

Prebiotics and Probiotics: Prebiotics like Chlorella and Spirulina, and probiotics relieve allergic symptoms by restoring proper balance of bacteria in the GI tract. Both help to rein in and contain over-exuberant immune responses.

Get a jump on allergy season by starting supplementation early, before symptoms even begin! Give the office a call or stop in with any questions you may have on how we can help you stay healthy through allergy season.
