Hay Fever Natural Treatments

Nature is awakening after a winter sleep; blossoming and spreading its beauty around, filling us with new energy and vitality. Unfortunately for some, it also signals a time when hayfever begins to take hold.

There are Ayurvedic remedies and rituals that can support those suffering from Hayfever and also build immunity in all of us. There is the science of chemistry, of physics and of Ayurveda; the science of living. This 5,000-year-old healing system advocates we look at symptoms as opposed to modern Western cures.  By going deeper into the root cause of any dis-ease, we stop the issue in its tracks and live with health and strength.  It’s never too late to give your mind and body a physical and emotional immunity boost, so here are our survival tips for banishing those allergens.

Food 

Eat light, freshly cooked and easily digestible food like hot soups as well as plenty of steamed green vegetables or salads avoiding excess dairy and wheat. Add more spices like turmeric, black pepper into foods.

TIP: Try to avoid excess dairy and wheat and if you want to eat cold foods like cheese and yoghurt, stick to having them at lunchtime only.

Drinks 

Drink warming, strengthening herbal infusions or a decoction made from liquorice, black pepper, basil, and ginger, taken twice daily as soon as the hay fever season starts.

TIP: Make your own herbal teas containing ginger, turmeric, cumin seeds, and cinnamon and sip 5-6 cups throughout the day. 

Massage

Abhyanga and Nasya, the Ayurveda Nasal treatments are very good for Hay Fever. Medicated Ayurvedic herbal oils are administered into the nostril after an energizing massage and steaming to the face. This once again helps to cleanse and clear out any mucus congestion from the sinuses.

TIP: Abdominal massage will help to get rid of the accumulated toxins in the digestive tract and stimulate the inner fire.

Yoga

Yoga Nidra practice especially designed to relieve allergy symptoms and can be used to help reduce or remove the symptoms of hay fever, asthma, and other respiratory problems.

TIP: Try breathing exercise. 

Sit up straight in a chair

Hold your breath for 5 seconds (it’s best to use a clock)

Inhale through your nose as gently as you can

Exhale through your nose and hold your breath for 10 seconds

Inhale gently through your nose
