10 Natural Allergy Relief Remedies That Are Fast And Effective

Oil Pulling

I had been suffering severely each year during harvesting of the rice with acute hayfever symptoms. My eyes were red and very itchy and a runny, itchy nose with a scratchy throat. I had been taking Claryntyne for some time but was looking for something natural as it seemed this was an ongoing life condition. Through this wonderful website I discovered oil pulling. I was a little skeptical of course as the whole idea of oil pulling was very strange to me. However, being in the land of coconut oil and having some at my disposal in the bathroom to rub on my skin daily I figured it couldn't hurt to try. This was back towards the end of 2011. The first morning I tried was a Friday I pulled for 15min - timing it. The first day I did it twice - morning and night.

On the Saturday I woke with the most acute case of allergies I had ever had, I ended up spending the whole day in bed. However, I read here somewhere not to give up as it can sometimes make it worse before it gets better. So I persisted and within about 3 weeks all symptoms had gone. I kept pulling for about 3 months and then we went away on holidays for 3 weeks and I broke the routine. And the whole time my allergies didn't come back. When I talked with people about this I used to say things like - well it could have been a coincidence, maybe it went away because I stopped eating something different.

However, about a month ago it started again. Itchy eyes, scratchy throat and a slightly runny nose. I was kind of pleased because it was my opportunity to test oil pulling for a 2nd time. I am extremely pleased to say that I have been oil pulling again now for about 3 weeks or so and I have no allergy symptoms again. This for me is proof that it actually works. I've recommended it to many people but I think they are just not sure. This time around also I have only been pulling in the morning for 10mins while I'm in the shower! I will continue to oil pull with coconut oil for a long time to come.


Raw Milk Kefir

I have suffered the worst seasonal allergies from pollen and after 6 months of daily RAW milk kefir (8 oz daily) I can now say I am allergy free. I can step out and do anything on highest pollen days when people are suffering, but the allergies don't bother me anymore.

If you have access to RAW milk, please make kefir from it and consume and see how it changes your life.

Additionally it made my bowel movements normal, and my acne disappear too. Unreal!


Nettles
Posted by Sheila (Cork, Ireland) on 10/27/2011

I have used nettles as an allergy cure for many years.

In "The Healing Power Of Rainforest Herbs" By Leslie Taylor ( the book is online ) nettles are the number one cure for allergies.

Fresh is best. I put mine in salt water for a minute to kill any insects. They can be used as a salad vegetable, added to soup or made into a tea.

For emergencies I keep dried nettle leaves in store. These can be purchased cheaply at most health food stores.

I searched online for the list of vitamins and minerals and came across Dr. Christopher's Herbal Legacy: www.herballegacy.com

He lists nettles as containing:

Vitamins A C D E F K P B complexes, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, B6, selenium, zinc, iron, magnesium, boron, sodium, iodine, chromium, copper and sulfur.

Good Luck and God Bless You

Love Is The Answer


Bee Pollen

Take a full dropper of Bee Propolis in a tablespoon of Manuka Honey (also containing 85% bee pollen). It TOTALLY cured my allergies! Also gastritis.

I used to need antibiotics at least 5-7x pr yr. for chronic rhinitis/sinusitis. Comes from a yeasty gut. Allergic nose sinusitus=chronic sinus infections! .... NO MORE!!!

Clean out yourself also- and eat clean. Get rid of the yeast too- and you'll be better in NO time.


Multiple Remedies

I have finally managed to control my allergies. After years of suffering with itchy eyes and throat and some of those years sneezing a lot it finally seems to be over. I never had hay fever because I had it the whole year. It was just like an unwanted friend I couldn't get rid of! Last year because of a disease the plane trees near our house had I got even worse.

This is not a recipe for anybody because all allergies are different but it might just give people a few ideas. Right now I am taking 4g Vit. C a day, 800IU of Vit. E, 150mg of Hyaluronic Acid and Fish oil. I have the idea that although I was quite a bit better with all this the big change came when I added a drink of blueberries, MSM, Condroitin and Glucosamin but I don't know.... Could it just have been because I had been taking the rest for a longer period of time? MSM in powder form didn't seem to change anything. I also try to drink a lot of water, took Beers Yeast for awhile, just to be on the safe side I am taking local pollens every morning as well as using unpasteurized local honey in my tea and taking Propolis. Quite a treatment but the bottom line is that I have been feeling fine and I have more energy. I also manage to sleep better most nights!


Apple Cider Vinegar Spray

I did the apple cider vinegar nasal spray with a small glass bottle spray (what I had on hand for essential oils) and it provided instantaneous relief! I was sneezing constantly and had a runny itchy nose. First spray I didn't spray all the way inside per nose but still provided instant relief. I inhaled a bit then tried a second time aiming higher I did feel a sting both times. But it was worth it I felt I couldn't handle these allergies anymore. Haha it's such a difference. My nose is calm it's not runny anymore and I'm not sneezing. This spray worked for me. Developed allergies after deep cleaning the room and cleaning up any dust.


Apple Cider Vinegar, Turmeric, Local Honey
Posted by Rob (Manhattan, New York) on 05/27/2010

in the thick of this allergy season my old remedies of Freeze Dried Stinging Nettle, MSM & Quercetin didn't seem to be working as well... I started drinking them down with ACV & cayenne, and that did the trick..breathing through my nose again...and can concur with above, skin looks better..dark allergy circles under eyes are not as prominent.

Hi Rob,

I have experienced NY spring allergies for years. This year I have been inhaling a little bit of h202 a few times a day (first thing in the a.m. - then, as needed) and it has helped tremendously. I think I will up my ACV/cayenne intake as well. Thanks for the reminder. Lee


Dietary Changes

I've had allergies since i was fairly young and at 25 had a sinus surgery which was an incredible relief (clearing polyps etc.) I could breath like a kid again. One year later pressure and symptoms returned to approximately the same level as before the surgery.. So I went on a vegan diet. i cute out all meat and dairy. And this has helped alot. I dont take any meds or shots any longer. I can breath clearly through my nose almost every day excepting the few days which i am getting a cold/allergy. After six months of this diet I havent had a cold that's lasted more than 2 days.


Probiotics

Probiotics works for allergies. I am a lot better now. This is what I do. I take 3 cloves of garlic a day- diced up and eaten on sprouted wheat toast with cream cheese. Yummy! Really! I take 1 Kyodophilus probiotic and 2 fish oil pills and drink a small glass of strawberry kefir. I drink a lot of water throughout the day with a little of the kefir mixed in to give it flavor and get more good bacteria because kefir is full of beneficial bacteria. This works for me and also my teenage son takes 2 kyodophilus + 2 fish oils + a little kefir everyday and he is doing great!!! YEAH! p.s. we really try to stay away from sugary starchy foods. Also, we have tried many kinds of probiotics, but this is the best we've ever tried.

I have used the ACV for my asthma---it worked OK--but it's set off by my allergies-I researched the black seed oil--bought the oil----oh my gosh, it did the trick--I put a tsp. in my juice before bed and slept like a baby--put a tsp in my morning coffee-and found my nose not stuffy--enjoying the day--now I'm even putting a little with shea butter and using it as a face cream---my face looks to smooth-and it's helping my allergies at the same time.

Honey

Try using local honey to alleviate allergy symptoms. Look for it at health food stores or your local Farmers' Market. This saved me from terrible eye pain caused by my allergies. From what I understand, using the honey is kind of like having a vaccination. Local honey works for allergy symptoms because it is made using the same plants you are having an allergic reaction to. Include a tablespoon of local honey in a cup of hot tea two or three times a day to begin with. When your symptoms are alleviated, maintain with one dose daily.


Bee Pollen

Warning

While I also highly recommend the bee pollen treatment, I do advise caution. The first time I had bee pollen was at a local honey tasting room. They had a little spoon you could get yourself a scoop and try it. I did like everyone else and got a small scoopful. I quickly had a sore and swollen throat, etc. If I had had much more I'm pretty sure I would have ended up in the hospital--something my allergies have never caused.

So, while I think it's a great desensitizer to allergies, to be cautious, especially if you have allergies. Start very small and work your way up.

I throw a couple pinches in my morning smoothie. Haven't noticed that it's hugely helpful for allergies, but I may need to have worked up to a greater amount by now.


Oil Pulling

Oil-Pulling (remedy) for allergies (ailment):

I started oil-pulling with Sesame oil about 3 months ago. It took a little while to get used to 1 whole Tablespoon of oil for 15-20 minutes, but I just did my normal morning routine while oil-pulling. I have not had to take any prescription allergy medications that I usually took at least a few times per month or when pollen counts were very high in my area. I oil-pull every morning when I wake up without fail and find that I have increased energy and no allergies.


Oregano Oil

About 2 weeks ago, I came down with some nasty allergies where my eyes were itching, watering, swelling, and just driving my crazy. My nose was also very runny. I take Oil of Oregano and Apple Cider Vinegar every day, but read about taking the Oil of Oregano sublingually. I started doing that twice day putting 3 drops under my tongue and holding it there for 60 seconds, then swallow with juice or water. Big difference! The allergies decreased by 80% within a couple hours. This stuff is awesome!


MSM

I have had seasonal allergies for the past 6-7 years. Earlier this year I read about how MSM can alleviate the symptoms of seasonal allergies, so I decided to give it a try. The allergy season was just starting and I could feel my eyes getting a bit itchy. I started taking 1000 mg of MSM and within 1 hour I was feeling better. It works as well as any OTC allergy medicine with out the negative health effects. As a matter of fact it is supposed to have beneficial health effects. I now take 1000 mg of MSM twice per day and have not had any more symptoms of allergies. I love this stuff.


Vitamin E

Oil Pulling

I started oil pulling 20 dec 07. have used olive, safflower, hemp, sesame, oils. also i have had others try the pull also. so far noticed from safflower are teeth got white, gums felt firmer, sinus's cleared, allergies diminished. from hemp i got sleepy. others that tried olive it immediately raised their mood levels and depression. gout pain eased with only one olive oil pull. i also add a couple of drops of peppermint in the tablespoon to kill the germs and open the sinus's too. sesame did not get any immediate results maybe because it is toasted . all in all everyone i have told that used it have been very happy with the results. only problem is trying to explain to them how it works. so i tell them that it works like oil in an auto engine that catches dirt and when you change the oil the dirt comes out. my nephew that is a plumber in oregon relayed that to me when i was trying to tell him to do the pull he automatically understood how the process could work. in his profession he stated that plumbers work with oil and water all of the time. smart nephew i have.

I stumbled across this website looking for a cure for my allergies. I have missed weeks from work due to allergies in the last year. I used ACV and that helped with the allergies but I still had some problems. I started oil pulling and I could really see the toxins leaving my body thru mucas ect.. After two weeks my allergies have been cured and I feel great.


Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation
Posted by Sandhi (USA) on 09/19/2007

To Ted: My Ragweed Allergy can get pretty ugly. completely stuffed up nose at night, post nasal drip, scratchy throat, uncontrolled sneezing and general feeling of being run down. H2O2 was giving me bloating, when drinking it in water. This time I bought a nasal pump. Put 3% HP (h2o2) in it, and pumped it in my mouth. To my surprise, the post nasal drip stopped almost immediately and the sneezing stopped. I carried my nasal pump to work, and did the same, as soon as I found, a big sneeze is on its way. And it worked almost every time. So the oxidative therapy of HP is working far better than all the Vitamin C, Vitamin E, NAC, Zinc, b-complex I was taking in hopes of combating the allergies. I am really thankful to you, cause had you not written posiitve things abt HP, I would have had no courage to try HP. You motivated me. Although I tried Bill Munro's method and I am also going to thank him personally. Please note: spraying HP in nostrils is really irritating. But spraying it insides of the mouth/ under the tongue, can literally stop and allergy attack. ( It has at least in my case). With allergy symptoms under control, I feel I have more energy and need less sleep, get less tired. Apart from spraying, I am also taking like 2 drops of 35% HP in a glass of water in the morning. I really wanna kill all the bugs out there. I am really impressed... thankyou.

I might have inhaled too much or did it wrong, but my neck swelled up and my voice got high pitched within 15 minutes of doing the hydrogen peroxide inhalation. My sister and family members gargle with it and I feel like that is fine, but I had air under my skin within an hour of doing this remedy.Be careful what you put in your body especially if your health is not great, mine was not good when I tried it.


Yerba Mate Tea

I'm 47 years old and for the first time in my life, I'm suffering from seasonal allergies. I use apple cidar vinegar on a semi-regular basis. Maybe that's why I've never really had a problem with it before. I've been on vacation and hadn't used ACV for a few weeks. Today my allergies were so bad, I could not stop sneezing. I got on earthclinic ( my favorite site!) and saw the sisters that tried Yerba Mate tea. I had some in the house so I made a cup. After just drinking one cup, my eyes stopped watering and the sneezing and runny nose are gone! What a difference! I feel completely fine now. Thank you earthclinic. You are SO appreciated!
