Sufferers should follow these tips:
Hay fever is a widespread name of pollen allergy, the main symptom of which is allergic rhinitis. The term ‘hay fever’, appeared in 1829 and today it is no longer relevant, because the disease has nothing to do with hay or fever conditions. Hay fever is primarily accompanied by rhinitis – inflammation of the mucous membrane lining the nasal cavity. In cases where the inflammatory response is caused by allergies, rhinitis is assigned an allergic type, while allergenic substances are considered to be allergens.

Sufferers should follow these tips….
- Wear wraparound sunglasses to reduce the amount of pollen or spores that enter your eyes.
- Spread Vaseline around the edge of each nostril to trap or block pollen.
- Dry clothes indoors rather than on the washing line, as damp clothes collect pollen.
- Take those shoes off, your favorite wedges might be what’s tracking pollutants, allergens and toxins in your home.
- Wipe your shoes on a mat and store away.
- Wash away pollen. When it finds its way into your hair, it can transfer onto your pillow causing further irritation at night; a warm shower before bed can minimise the impact.
- Change clothes when you come indoors after spending time outside
- Keep windows and doors shut during blossoming (and in your car)
- If you are a man with facial hair, cleaning your mustache and/or beard with soap and water or shampoo twice a day will cut down on the symptoms
Enjoy these foods to help hay fever
Make these foods part of your daily diet to reduce the effects of hay fever:
• Garlic, green tea and onions, contain quercetin, a natural anti-histamine
• Brightly colored fruit and vegetables – berries, sweet potato, butternut squash and tomatoes contain
beta-carotene (antioxidant), which reduces histamine output from immune cells.
• Oily fish like sardines, salmon and mackerel which are rich in the anti-inflammatory omega 3 oils
which may reduce the production of inflammatory chemicals.
• Onions and apples (skin on) are rich in quercetin which is a natural anti-histamine
• Local honey preferably still with the honeycomb, only in moderation though. It is thought that the pollen
in the honey may be protective, with a potentially natural immunizing effect.
• Cut sugar – refined sugar triggers a rise and fall of blood sugar levels, which causes an adrenaline surge that activates histamine release. Avoid cakes, chocolate, coffee, dairy. Packaged foods, pies and soft drink.
• Avoid smoking and alcohol, increase the production of mucus for eye and irritation.
