Could These Four Natural Allergy Treatments Help You?

Could These Four Natural Allergy Treatments Help You?

No one wants to deal with allergy symptoms, yet they affect millions of Americans and many people in California. If you are one of the 35 million people who deal with seasonal allergies, you might have wondered: do any of the natural treatments actually work?

The answer is that it depends. It depends on the type of allergies you are suffering from, the severity of your allergies, and other factors. While we recommend a comprehensive allergy treatment plan based on a person’s specific situation, it is certainly true that some natural treatments can work as part of an overall plan. Contact Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology Medical Group at 805-658-9500 now if you have questions or are ready to move forward with allergy testing and/or treatment.

  1. Take Your Workout Inside
  2. One of the simplest things you can do is to exercise inside instead of outside. If you love to ride your bike, walk, or run outside, you might bring it indoors during allergy season. We know that can be unfortunate, but the truth is that when you engage in outdoor activities when pollen is at its peak, you will be making your allergies worse.
  3. Acupuncture
  4. This ancient natural health remedy has been discussed as a solution to many different issues, including allergies. There is some science that acupuncture can have some effect in reducing the production of histamines, which are what cause the symptoms you deal with, and in helping improve the immune system.
  5. Nasal Irrigation
  6. One of the most popular forms of nasal irrigation is the neti pot, but it is far from the only option. You can use any type of saline nasal spray, which works by thinning nasal secretions. Water with a touch of salt can help even more. Flushing sinuses can help prevent allergies and treat them, too – especially as part of an overall treatment plan.
  7. Change When You Shower
  8. Do you usually shower in the morning? Showering at night instead can help you sleep better and without allergy symptoms. Think about all the pollen and allergens that can come into contact with your hair on a daily basis. When you shower at night, you can remove all those potential irritants and keep them out of the bedroom.
