12 Natural Ways to Defeat Allergies

toys safetyAllergies affect millions of adults and children in the UK. In this blog post we list 12 natural ways that can bring relief to allergy sufferers.

• Know your triggers and minimise exposure to allergens: keep door and windows closed, wash clothes worn outdoors frequently, consider installing HEPA air filters on your vacuum cleaner, and wear a respirator mask on high pollen count days.
• Don’t rely on antihistamines alone: for best results, combine antihistamines with natural, alternative or plant-based treatments, such as butterbur extract, Ayurvedicneti pots, or acupuncture.
• Strengthen your immune system: eating healthily and drinking more liquids are the basics when it comes to staying healthy, and a healthy body is better prepared to cope with allergy symptoms.

“There’s no doubt that a healthy diet is good for your whole body”
