Nothing quite matches the beauty of Spring in San Diego.
The calm before the storm, spring brings warmer weather, new blooms and with it comes tons of allergens to drive you nuts!
There are a few very simple home remedies that can lessen your histamine reaction without the use of drowsy drugs.
Local Raw Honey
The key to getting the anti-histamine properties of honey is LOCAL. Local honey uses local pollen’s, this in-turn allows your body to absorb these allergens and build tolerance. This concept is similar to a flu shot, it allows your body to build an army without experience a full-blown attack. Honey on its own has many amazing properties including being an anti-inflammatory. Often allergy symptoms can be caused by inflammation in the body, using honey in conjunction with cinnamon is a power pact (and yummy) way to reduce inflammation.
Nettle & Mint Tea
A natural histamine blocker, Nettle fills the receptor in you brain that activates the histamine reaction. Drinking a tea made of nettle and mint helps prevent a reaction and soothe the system.
Adding a fresh sprig to your drinking water delivers fresh tasting & healthy delight. If no fresh basil is available add a few drops of Basil Oil for lasting effects. Basil can stain the teeth so make sure not to ‘suck’ the mixture through your teeth.
Spring is a shame to miss! Take great care of your system and see the beauty of spring unfold!
