Runny nose? Watery eyes? Itchy throat? Sounds like you have allergies! As it has been widely reported, this could be one of the worst allergy seasons in years. With 20% of Americans affected by allergies, 1 in every 5 Americans is always looking for remedies to alleviate their symptoms.
HealthyDirections.com, a new website that provides access to health content from leading doctors who are experts in the fields of heart health, women’s health, alternative medicine, weight loss, and beauty, has an array of tips and advice to help your readers survive this year’s allergy season.
One of the Healthy Directions doctors, Dr. Julian Whitaker, has shared three easy steps people can take to “Tackle Allergies Naturally”:
Minimize Your Exposure – While you can’t avoid airborne allergens entirely, you can reduce your exposure by thoroughly cleaning your house, removing as many carpets and rugs as you can, using an air purifier, and filling your house with plants.
Take Targeted Supplements – Several nutritional supplements have been shown to relieve allergy symptoms including Bromelain, which reduces tissue swelling helping to break up mucus, and Vitamin C, which can reduce histamine levels.
Wash Allergies Away – Flush allergens from the nose and eyes by filling a basin with warm water and submerging your face for a few seconds to wash them away before they enter the body.
