Back of throat, eyes and nose itch from allergies:

A little Apple Cider Vinegar in a glass of water always helps me with respiratory allergies. You know the feeling of the back of your throat itching? Sneezing? Stuffy nose? and watery itchy eyes? Add a capfull of ACV into a cup of water. In about 10 minutes the harshness of the allergy symptoms will lessen dramatically.

Yes, I agree. It's the organic ACV with the mother which is usually cloudy in appearance, contains more nutrients. I have been taking two tablespoons diluted in a glass of water three times a day with cayenne pepper (couple of pinches), followed by a couple of spoons of honey (even better if it is local) three times a day. I prefer to take the honey raw rather than trying to dilute it, as it leaves a coating in the back of your throat, and you lose the nutrition value when it is heated. So far it is working after 20 years of suffering. But there is still time yet before the season ends.

I, too, have many times found that if I just INCREASE THE DOSE a reported natural cure works FINE. Heck with dilution I started taking a standard shot glass and putting a tablespoon or so organic and unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar (cheaper brands don't work as well I've found). Than I just take it DOWN in one shot. Don't even chase it with water but of course you can. 2x per day. HAYFEVER PROBLEM SOLVED WITHOUT DRUGS thank you very much! Nice to know ACV has a lot of OTHER good "side effects" too!

I took ACV for several months, every day. I hated it. One teaspoon in water, followed by a full glass of water to drown out the taste. And it did nothing at all for my hayfever. I was miserable, my eyes were watering constantly, nose dripping out of nowhere, completely embarrassing.

So then I thought, if everyone else is raving about it, why isn't this working for me? I upped the dose: yesterday after a particulary awful hayfeverish day, I took three tablespoons of it in water three times. Today, I took it at 6:30 am then again at 9am at the same dosage. And guess what...no symptoms at all. Crazy. I will take another strong dose when I get home and perhaps tomorrow reduce it a bit.

If the ACV isn't working for you, increase it!!

I had 40 years of suffering hay fever, taking all known drugs on the market without much sucesss. My eye lids would fill with fluid and I appeared drugged from September to March. My sister told me to try Apple Cider Vinegar as a shot or mixed in water twice a day. I did this for the whole season. After a few days my nose and sinus dried up. I had to use honey to stop the throat itch. I no longer suffer with hay fever and the best part I have not had any asthma either. This was 3 years ago. When I get a little tingle I drink ACV for a week and it's all gone.

I've been suffering from allergies for 12 years now. I finally went to a doctor this year to have the doctor take a look (I actually looked went to two docs). The tests they took showed I was allergic to almost every airborne allergen (95% of most airborne allergens, yikes!) I was seriously a running faucet and sneeze machine. I'd wake up sneezing, burn through toilet paper for wiping my nose. Basically, i was disgusting and I was completely bogged down for hay fever season. I started taking 3 shots of ACV a day. The first 10 days nothing and then all the sudden, on the 11th it was like a light switch. Everything stopped. I continued taking 3 shots a day for about a month and a half and am now down to 1 shot a day, which I am taking basically as a "just in case" shot. My allergies are completely eliminated. Not even a sniffle. I'm not sure how it works, but it 100% worked for me. Like a veil being lifted, a light turning on; it was a complete life change to be able to enjoy the seasons again :)

I used to suffer from hayfever when I was studying in Perth, Western Australia 10yrs ago. At that time, I took Horseraddish supplement for 1 season and it helps stops hayfever. I moved to Singapore recently due to work and woke up with runny nose and unstoppable sneezing for at least 1 hr every day for the past 2 mths. Taking horseraddish supplement doesn't help anymore, maybe my body is immune to horseraddish supplemnt! I was researching the internet for Hay fever remedy and read that raw honey helps. While researching further for raw honey benefits, I stumbled into this site and read that ACV helps with hayfever and decided to give it a try. I found that any brand of ACV is equally effective. I put 1 teaspoon ACV, 2 teaspoons honey and 1 glass of water. Drink it 3 times a day for a week, it cures my hayfever!! No more sinus, sneezing or runny nose within a week! I continued to drink the mixture after my hayfever's symptom is gone thinking to use it my daily drink for health, but I found that drinking ACV when I didn't have anymore hayfever actually irritates my throat passage and caused whizzing cough. I stopped taking the drink. No more whizzing coughs, plus my hayfever has not returned since. I am so gladed that I found this site and would like to share how ACV cures my hayfever!

Apple Cider Vinegar. Periodically, I have trouble with an allergic symptom that is similar to Meniere's Syndrome symptoms, however Meniere's Syndrome has been ruled out by my doctors. The specialists determined that it was "some kind of allergy." I have not had an attack in two years, but did yesterday after spending a several days outside in very windy weather gardening. In frustration, I looked on the internet for a "natural allergy cure," and found the apple cider vinegar one. I tried it. Within an hour, I was feeling better, not perfect, but definitely BETTER. I will continue to try it and encourage my husband, who has hay fever, to try it also. Thank you so much, as I was desperate to stay off of medications!

2 tsp honey, 2 tsp apple cider vinegar in 8 to 16 ounces of water 3 times a day cured my arthritis, back pain and allergies. I was in so much pain for many many years with severe back problems, and then 2 years ago was diagnosed with rheumatoid and osteoarthritis. The dr. prescribed steroids, and 2 different immuno suppressant drugs and the side effects were horrible. I could hardly get out of bed in the morning, my joints and muscles hurt so bad, i also have fibromyalgia. I started this regimen about a month ago and saw immediate results. My hay fever has cleared up also. My sinuses are dry, usually I always have a bad post nasal drip problem. I feel more energized, and my body just feels good, like it is getting what it needs.

Raw Apple Cider w/water 16oz 4-5 times day for 6 months. Half your body weight in ounces of water per day. Before meals and at bedtime. This concoction cured Hay fever I suffered from for 30 years, also acid reflux. My urine is mostly clear. No symptoms of allergies even if I miss weeks of the tonic and drink only clean water instead. No Acne break outs. Everyone can save so much money that they would spend on allergy pills if they would do this simple and cheap method.

I've been taking 2 teaspoons of Cider vinegar 3 times a day for my hayfever and I am amazed to say that I am almost symptom free, I now do not take anything else but the unpasteurized cider vinegar... I managed to get hold of some unprocessed honey and took that with the vinegar but the next day I sneezed really badly and my eyes were itching! so I stopped taking the honey and so did my symptoms.
