All kinds of allergies and sensitivities, whether food, seasonal, chemical, environmental, etc., can be a challenge to deal with on a daily basis. It can affect your daily routine and make life difficult. I believe in using natural ways to stop suffering without the worry of having an allergic reaction to a toxic chemical drug. The side effects of OTC or prescription drugs can affect your ability to complete daily tasks.
I know personally that taking medication can produce dramatic reactions. Taking a natural herbal remedy for people with allergies and sensitivities can even have negative effects on some very sensitive individuals. Although, compared to a prescription or even an over-the-counter drug, a herbal remedy usually doesn’t produce a traumatic reaction.
But there are completely non-invasive natural remedies that work very effectively to reduce allergy symptoms and sometimes get rid of them completely.
Below are four alternative medicine and natural remedies for allergies and sensitivities that can provide you with plenty of relief. They have very beneficial effects on the body that not only relieve allergy symptoms but help your body detoxify pollutants, eliminate pain, muscle spasms and many other health benefits.
1.Massage: A relaxing and soothing massage can have many health benefits. If your allergy symptoms are causing sinus pressure and headaches, a thorough scalp massage can relieve the throbbing pain in your head and neck. Massage can help open up the nasal passage and clear some of the drainage, and it also releases endorphins, which are natural pain relievers and help you feel better. It also helps support the immune system, which helps your body fight allergy symptoms and strengthen your body.
2.Yoga: There are several yoga practices that can help with this relieve allergy symptoms, including runny noses and inflamed sinuses. Some of the breathing exercises can be very helpful. However, it should be noted that using yoga poses and techniques in isolation is unlikely to bring instant relief. You need to engage in a regular yoga routine so your body can enjoy a healthier immune system.
3. Steam Bath & Hydrotherapy: The healing properties of water can a cleaning effect allergies. Steam treatments and hot baths can open the sinuses and relieve allergy symptoms. bathing with essential oils can offer Relief from allergies.
Make sure the bath is slightly warmer than body temperature. Add 8 drops of peppermint oil while the water is still running. Immerse most of your body in the water for about 20 minutes. Add water to keep the bath temperature warm. For a quick steam treatment, boil half a liter of water with dried chamomile or yarrow and inhale the steam until the water cools.
4. Acupuncture: Getting needles stuck into your skin probably sounds scary and painful. But don’t worry, from my own personal experience of acupuncture I can definitely attest that it works and provides relief from sinus and allergy symptoms. Don’t worry about the needles! They do not resemble a conventional needle, they are extremely thin and flexible and you usually do not even feel them. The benefits of acupuncture arise because of it releases energy blockages and helps you to have a more balanced state, which in turn allows your body to prevent that initial allergic reaction from appearance.
