Natural Remedies for Allergies and Hay Fever Season


Hay Fever - Premier Healthcare Germany

Allergy season is upon us, and if you live in an area that has seen or suffered from record rain this winter, you better be ready. Mother Nature is about to spill her spring bounty upon us. For those of us with reactive immune systems or prone to hay fever and seasonal allergies, this spring may require us to be ready with a well stocked medicine cabinet.

Our immune system reacts to allergens by producing histamines. Histamines are substances our bodies produce in response to an invasion by an allergen. This is felt with the symptoms we all typically associate with allergies, such as a runny nose, sneezing, coughing and the like. 

When we say we are having an allergic reaction, we are actually relaying that the body has detected an allergen, and has reacted against the allergen with the manifestation we notice are those pesky superficial symptoms that can ruin the day. 

Managing our allergic reactions is tied to managing our reaction to allergens, the histamine production. Thus antihistamines are very typically sold as the must-have armor for allergy season. But over-counter chemical-based products aren’t the only answer. We can manage our allergy symptoms with all-natural products as well. 

While there are a myriad of products available at all price points, we highly recommend keeping a stock of natural, herbal supplements and remedies in addition to eating healthy.

Here are three allergy season essentials we recommend:

  1. Natural Herbal Extracts
  2. Topical Rubs
  3. Aromatherapy Oils

Natural Herbal Extracts for Seasonal Allergies and Hay Fever 

Natural herbal extracts are powerful allies to reducing seasonal hay fever symptoms and may work better than their synthetic competitors especially if grown within the same geographical regions as you are living in therefore coming in contact and reacting to the same allergens you are, then building defenses to those in particular within the plant. 

Stinging Nettles

Antihistamines & Immune Boosting Herbs 

While some herbs such as stinging nettles, eyebright and bromelain have been found to balance natural histamine levels, other herbal extracts like goldenseal or echinacea can help regulate or balance your immune system reducing potential flare-ups or reducing their severity. 

De-Stressing and Calming Herbs 

Stress relieving and calming extracts of ashwagandha root, ginseng and passionflower can help keep your body healthy and boost your body’s natural defenses to allergens.

The air in your enclosed environment may have a greater effect on your ability to breathe than you think, especially during an allergy spell. The right combination of essential oils can literally clear the air, and help soothe congested airways, while also enhancing your overall immunity. Using 100% natural essential oils in a diffuser or fine spray bottle can turn a neutral or negative environment into a supportive space that helps you breathe easier while your immune system fights seasonal allergies.

    How to use it? Diffuse a few drops into the air to help clear and soothe congested airways while boosting the immune system.
