Today’s Solutions: October 26, 2021

Although Spring is known as the season of renewal, for those of us who suffer from allergies, it can feel like quite the opposite. Allergies, also known as hay fever, is the result of the immune system overreacting to allergens such as plant pollen, which leads to lots of congestion, sneezing, and itching.

While treatment usually involves over-the-counter medicines, adding certain foods to your diet can actually help relieve symptoms like the nose-dripping and eye-watering. From reducing inflammation to boosting the immune system, there a bunch of foods you can add to your diet to ease your Springtime woes. A great example is ginger, which has been used as a natural remedy for thousands of years. By adding ginger to your meals or to your cup of tea, you can naturally reduce swelling and irritation in the nasal passages, eyes, and throat.

Salmon and other oily fish have also been shown to keep the sneezing away. Apparently, there’s some evidence that the omega-3 fatty acids from fish could bolster your allergy resistance and even improve asthma. If you’re on the hunt for more allergy-fighting foods, look no further.
