Some ways to treat your allergies naturally
- Once we have determined what is causing your allergies, a natural first step is to see if you can avoid them. This may involve simple lifestyle changes such as closing your windows, installing HEPA filters, using dust covers on mattresses, avoiding locations you know will trigger allergies, and staying indoors on high pollen count days. The doctor will help you explore more ways to minimize the effects allergens have on you.
- Herbs. Nettles are a natural antihistamine. We recommend to try to have nettle tea once daily.
- Saline nasal rinses. These can be an immense help in rinsing away allergens collected in your sinus cavities, and may aid in preventing sinus infections.

Do people ever outgrow allergies?
With recent different studies, we do believe that elderly might not develop allergies or lose certain allergy responses as they age.
Can people’s responses to the allergens change over time?
Yes. A child may have a skin response for their pet when they are young, which might change into nasal or eye symptoms as they get old.
It may even grow into asthma. How it appears, and the severity may change.
Is there a possibility to get rid of allergies?
People may lose some allergies when hormones change at adolescence. They can also lose allergies by getting on allergy shots.
The idea of such treatment is to get people to respond in a none allergic manner to their allergens.
