Get the buzz on how to use local honey to fight seasonal allergies! Bees collect pollen from plants to make honey. When you eat local honey, you will be ingesting small particles of pollen from plants that cause seasonal allergies in your area. Similar to allergy immunotherapy injections, eating local honey can help you build up resistance to the very allergens that are causing you to cough and sneeze. One spoonful a day can help keep allergies at bay.
When you breathe in, allergens get trapped in your nostrils which can set off a trail of uncomfortable symptoms. Rinsing your nose with a neti pot has been proven to be a very effective way to keep your nose free of allergens and also to ward off sinus infections. Not sure how to begin? Just fill the neti pot with one cup lukewarm water mixed with a fourth teaspoon of non-iodized pure salt. Gently flush your nose by pouring the water into one nostril and letting it drip out the other. It might feel a little weird at first, but once you see the effects, it won’t be long before you are hooked on neti pots!
