The American Academy of Allergy & Asthma Immunology states that as much as 30% of the global population suffers from allergic rhinitis (allergies caused by airborne substances such as dust or smoke.) According to the Allergy Asthma Center, people spend as much as $2 billion per year on allergy treatment, including office visits, tests, medications and allergy shots.[4]

Allergies and allergic reactions are no fun for anyone. The most common way to negate the side effects from these dreadful allergies are to either stay away from them altogether (which is almost impossible to do with seasonal allergies) or take over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription medication. However, these medications often leave you with different side effects including drowsiness, dizziness, and blurred vision. The good news is that herbal allergy remedies typically have very little to no side effects and can be as effective and, in many cases, more effective than allergy medications.

 

How Do Allergies Start?

Allergy symptoms begin when our bodies release histamine in response to an allergen. When it comes to being more susceptible to developing allergies, a poor immune system can be the reason why. Yep, that’s right, a weakened immune system can actually increase your risk of suffering from allergy symptoms.[1]

John Hopkins Medicine tells us that allergies are actually disorders of the immune system. Symptoms are caused when the body over-reacts to harmless substances and produces antibodies to attack those substances.[2

Fighting Allergies 

How do you fight these allergies and make the spring a more enjoyable time of year?

One thing you can do to avoid allergies is to increase allergy-fighting foods in your diet while decreasing foods that cause allergies and inflammation.

Foods that help fight allergies include[3][4][5]:

  • Citrus fruits
  • Tomatoes
  • Salmon
  • Onions

Food that may increase inflammation, increasing allergies include:

  • Dairy
  • Bread
  • Alcohol

There are several other natural ways you can fight off these dreadful allergies. Some ways include consuming apple cider vinegar, hibiscus, rosemary, ginger, honey, elderberry, and moringa.

 

Combating  Allergies

 

Apple Cider Vinegar  Apple cider vinegar’s potassium content helps to break up mucus in the body and clear the lymph nodes.

Hibiscus  Known for its high content of Vitamin C, Hibiscus is said to be good for the immune system. It also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties which help in treating skin allergies.

Rosemary  This herb contains rosmarinic acid, which has both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. The study also reveals that this acid is a free radical fighter that helps suppress inflammation of white blood cells.[6]

Ginger  Many of the unpleasant allergy symptoms come from inflammatory issues, like swelling and irritation in the nasal passages, eyes, and throat. Ginger can help reduce these symptoms naturally. For thousands of years, ginger has been used as a natural remedy for a number of health problems, like nausea and joint pain.[7]

Wild Honey (Local and raw)  Ingesting local, raw honey translates into ingesting local pollen. This means that over time, a person can become less sensitive to pollen, similar to building up a tolerance through oral immunotherapy (OIT) with microdosing.[8]

Elderberry  This potent plant contains the antioxidant and antihistamine flavonols quercetin, kaempferol, and isorhamnetin. The flower contains up to 10 times more flavonoids than the berries.[9]

Since allergies involve an overreaction of the immune system and inflammation, the herb’s ability to improve immune function and calm inflammation can help provide allergy relief.[10]

In fact, some herbalists add elderflower to the list of most effective herbs used for treating symptoms due to hay fever. Elderberry can be used for allergies on its own or in combination with other herbs.

Moringa  The moringa plant contains different antihistamines including polyphenols, flavonoids, and antioxidants. It also includes omega-3. The specific antioxidants found in Moringa include quercetin and kaempferol. 

Quercetin is found in high amounts in grapefruit, onions, and okra, but Moringa Oleifera contains 5 times more than these foods (1362.6 mg/kg).[11]

Amazing, right? 

By consuming Moringa, you are getting both quercetin and kaempferol flavonoids. These two flavonoids have been shown to work together to fight everything from cancer cells to inflammation.

These infusions are truly magic.

Now I don’t usually write reviews, but I am forever sold and you should be too!

Love these products so much!! I mix the Elderberry and Ginger and Lemongrass every day and love them together! So far I haven’t been sick at all since I’ve started drinking these daily so seeing many benefits!

Finally, here’s what Tiana Schneider is saying (be sure to watch her video below):

“I’ve been a sufferer of seasonal allergies since moving to Colorado three years ago. I had seemingly tried everything from nasal sprays and allergy pills to facial acupuncture just to find relief. Then I found Moringa Infusions! After implementing Moringa into my daily routine, I no longer have sinus pressure/pain, my allergies are nearly non-existent, and I haven’t seen my facial acupuncturist since!”
