How To GeT Rid Of Allergies?
I was shocked to learn that every year thousands of people get sick or affected by different types of the allergies. In this article, will try to provide you with the best step by step natural ways to get rid of allergies. Before we go any further I think it would be a nice idea to discuss the reasons behind these allergies.
Why Allergies Happen?
Different people have different immune systems. Our environment contains different chemical, biochemical particles in it and these particles are not accepted by the immune systems. For example, in Spring, pollens fall from the trees as the wind blows which look romantic for many people but can you even imagine that these pollens can turn into a headache for some people who have pollen sensitive immune system?
How do Allergens work?
After entering the body allergens leave an antibody response which then alters your normal body functions and appears as an allergy. Reasons behind allergies are not restricted to the materials present in our environment, in fact, there is a wide range of the caused behind the allergies.
Different major types of the allergies
Effect of allergies can be different for different immune systems. Some types of allergies can even be life-threatening if not cured in time as per the advice of the doctor. Most of the allergy types can be irritating but are not life threatening. Allergy is a funny disease. Some people even get allergies if they eat Date (fruit), drink milk or eat any other thing that their immune system does not accept.
I have a friend with Date allergy. He starts feeling bruises in his throat after eating it, so isn’t allergy a funny disease?
Pople with milk allergies often vomits after they drink it. I am not going to write all allergy cases but I have listed some major types of the allergies below:
- Allergies from food (different for different people).
- Seasonal allergies (when climate changes).
- Allergies from insect biting.
- Allergy from dust.
- Allergies from pets.
- From drugs
These were only few reason behind allergies, there is a wide range of the allergies which could not be mentioned in a single article.
Major symptoms of Allergies
As I mentioned earlier, different allergies come from different sources so of course, symptoms for different types of allergies will also be different. For example, if you always vomit after drinking milk then you should better contact a doctor because it can be a milk allergy. Some symptoms that appear for most of the allergy types are listed below:
- Throat scratches
- running nose
- Watery eyes
There are many other symptoms too that could appear upon allergies. If you have an allergy then your first choice should be a doctor. You can also try some amazing natural ways to answer your question how to get rid of allergies at home.
How To Get Rid of Allergies?
I think we had enough explanations of ‘allergy’ and its types and not its time to take some serious steps to prevent the allergies and let’s discuss how to get rid of the allergies.
Avoid your Allergens
Of course, the best ever way to get rid of your allergy is to avoid the allergens that cause you the allergy. For example, if you get allergy because of the pollens then in the spring season, keep your windows closed and avoid going out.
In your case, your allergen could be different so avoid that fu*kin allergen for the best results. If you don’t know your allergen then make sure that you have some emergency medicines available in the house.
2. Avoid smoke
Smoke is the mother of allergens. No matter if you have a smoke allergy or not but exposure to the smoke can make any type of the allergy even worse. Chemical particles present in the smoke promotes the antibody function of the allergens.
3. Steam- The Best Natural Anit- Allergy weapon
As you know, water is a universal solvent and can cure any disease if used properly. Inhaling steam can have a refreshing impact on the body immune system. Most of the nasal allergies can be uprooted if steam is inhaled regularly. Steam plays the role of the cleansing material in the nasal cavity.
4. Prefer More Drinks
During your allergies, you should prefer extra drinks over your daily routine. Try some fresh fruit juices and don’t forget to consume the large volume of the water. Water and other fluids fight against the allergens.
5. Nasal Rinse
Nose plays an important role in our breathing mechanism and most of the allergens enter our body through the nose. Using a nasal rinse can help you keeping your nose allergens free. You can even prepare a nasal rinse at home mixing following things:
- Sterilized water.
- Little, very little amount of baking soda (maybe pinch).
- Some salt depending on the quantity of the water (half spoon in most of the cases).
6. A Good diet can defeat Allergies
More you use healthy diets more strong will be your immune system. If you have just got an allergy then make sure that you are now consuming good diet regularly, it will give a boost to your immune system which will then fight against the allergens in your body.
7. Mask could also be the option
Masking your nose can prevent many allergens to enter your nose. You should use a mask while going outside of the house. Especially, mask plays a key role in preventing the allergens in the spring season.
8. Honey, Sweet Honey
Honey has the cure for all disease except death. You can use local honey to fight against the allergens. Though no scientist has yet proved honey as an anti-allergy element but many allergy affected people who used local honey has admitted that use of honey really heals the allergy.
9. Increase Fruit Intake
Increasing fruits intake can also help fighting against the allergic agents. Fruits like tomatoes, lettuce and apples contain Quercetin which fights against the allergens.
Warning! Use of Quercetin can be dangerous if you are pregnant or practicing your nursing.
10. Natural Herbs
Several herbs have been proved as an amazing anti-allergy agents e.g. goldenseal, spirulina and eyebright.
