5 Natural Allergy Solutions

The top 5 natural allergy solutions

Achoo! Looking for natural allergy relief ?

Here are some of the things I most often recommend to my patients in my office. You might find relief from them too!


Stinging nettles have long been used for providing relief front he sniffing, sneezing, and red eyes associated with seasonal allergies. I love making nettle tea or using nettles in soup broth. There are also tons of nettle supplements available at the health food store.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is well known as a histamine stabilizer. What does that mean? It can reduce the amount of histamine that is released from your immune cells. Over the counter histamine stabilizers and blockers are medicines like Benadryl. Histamine is the chemical in our body that causes symptoms of runny nose, watery eyes, puffy eyes, sneezing, and itching. The less you release histamine, the better you can feel.

Local Honey

What does honey have to do with your seasonal allergies? Well, a lot! Honey naturally contains pollen. If you use local honey with local pollen, this creates a tolerance to the pollen. Your immune system can get used to the local pollen and become less reactive. Plus, it’s yummy!


Using remedies like Euphrasia and Allium can be helpful for most seasonal allergy symptoms. Euphrasia could be helpful for painful itchy eyes, Allium for a painful watery nose. Not sure which remedy is best for you? Try a combination remedy from your health food store or make an appointment with your naturopath.


Techniques like Applied Kinesiology (AK) and Total Body Modification (TBM) could potentially harmonize your body to the allergens in your environment. When I use AK and TBM in my office, I am helping reset the acupuncture meridian lines, organ systems, and alarm points while introducing the allergen. Most of my patients have experienced immediate relief.

    The local honey has worked fine for me for over 18 years. Two teaspoons a day in my coffee and I am pretty much allergy free.

    Thanks for sharing these different allergy remedies! It is good to know that there are more natural ways to take care of allergies, especially when you don’t want to spend too much money on them. I think I’ll try taking more vitamin C for my allergies, and see if it will help at all.

    Thanks for reccomending these 5 allergy relief products. I have also heard that Vitamin C is good for allergy relief but I never knew why. Now i know that Vitamin C can reduce the amount of histamine released from our immune cells. I never knew how big a role histamine actually played in our immune system. Thanks for the recommendations and help!
