How To Treat Seasonal Allergies

As much as everyone looks forward to spring, some folks grit their teeth for weeks because of seasonal allergies. Although there are many different reasons for people's allergies, anyone who spends months blowing their nose can benefit from a few adjustments.

One of the best ways to alleviate those miserable symptoms is to steer clear of alcohol. Both red and white wine seem to be the worst instigators. Also, consider avoiding other foods subject to aging and fermentation like cheese and pickles. And as for yeast, it’s one more reason to stop consuming bread.

In addition, research supports the benefits of fresh produce, fish and nuts for reducing both the symptoms of existing allergies as well as the development of allergies later in life.

Although antioxidants and flavonoids are beneficial, certain nutrients like vitamin C are potent natural antihistamines. An extra dose of magnesium can help alleviate wheezing symptoms.

Finally, many people report a dramatic reduction in hay fever and other seasonal allergies when cutting the consumption of grains from their diet.
