Allergies can be manifested by itchy and watery eyes, sneezing and a runny rose and even difficulty in breathing! Having difficulty in breathing calls for a doctor’s visit and should not be self treated at home as it can be very dangerous.

For other milder and non threatening symptoms, you can try the following allergy remedies at home.

  • Drink plenty of water and other fluids like orange, pineapple and apple juice. Drinking fluids can help flush out toxins and also thin down secretions.
  • Combine freshly squeezed juice from half of one lime with a glass of lukewarm water. It can help flush out toxins and also acts as an anti allergy. Take this concoction once a day every morning.
  • For sneezing and a runny nose, you can make a homemade saline solution. Just combine 1 tablespoon of salt, a pint of lukewarm distilled water and a pinch of baking soda. Sniff a bit of this saline solution once or twice a day.
  • Make some peppermint tea. Peppermint tea is a very good natural decongestant. It is also anti inflammatory and antibacterial. For homemade peppermint tea, combine ½ ounce of peppermint leaves (dried) and 2/3 quart of boiling water.

Pollen and dust that cause allergic rhinitis

  • Avoid pollen. Pollen is the number one cause for most cases of hay fever. You can do this by wearing a mask when doing outdoor activities in the spring or summer (the season with most pollen) like mowing the lawn, raking dried leaves and gardening. Avoid inhaling pollen during days with strong winds and even when you are in your car by closing the windows a bit. You can also protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses. Lastly, avoid bringing in fresh flowers into the house.
  • Avoid dust and dust mites. Clean your carpet regularly with the use of a powerful vacuum cleaner. You can also remove dust and dust mites from your bed linens by beating comforters and mattresses with a paddle. Just make sure to wear a mask while doing this and to do the paddling outside to keep the dust and dust mites out of the house.

What Do You Know About Asthma Attack

Asthma

Asthma

Alternative doctors believe that the approach of modern medicine to asthma is inadequate and misguided. They believed that the medications have caused more harm than good since they treat the symptoms and not the problem.

Though most alternative doctors use the natural method, the total healing program they designed required medical tests and supervision of a doctor. Alternative home remedies can be safely used by anyone with asthma.

One of the alternative cures for this inflammatory condition is magnesium. It helps open up the airways wherein it acts as a natural bronchodilator. It’s recommended that a daily dose of 500 milligrams magnesium supplement be taken for six months.

Asthma can be life threatening

Asthma can be life threatening

During asthma attack, the lungs become inflamed which makes it harder to breathe. Thus, to reduce this inflammation, omega 3 from flaxseed oil and fish oil is recommended as a supplement.

However, if you are aspirin sensitive, consult your physician when taking fish oil. Antioxidants such as beta carotene and Vitamins C and E are also being recommended to reduce the formation of free radicals which are formed when there is an inflammation during an asthma attack. These free radicals are unstable, cell damaging molecules that cause further harm to the body.

One interesting herb that I have discovered is called coleus. This herb has been used for centuries by practitioners of Ayurveda, the ancient system of natural healing from India. This herb helps relax the airways. It’s recommended to get a product standardized for 18 percent forskolin, the active ingredient in coleus. Take 50 milligrams two or three times a day for up to a year.

Most asthma cases are often triggered by allergens. The nettle herb is also recommended for patients with sinus problems or nasal allergies. The herb has histamine that helps control allergic reactions that could trigger the asthma attack. In addition, water treatment can also helps relief asthma attack.

Asthma can be life threatening, so before you try anything of the above, consult your doctor first.
