5 Natural Remedies to Fight Pollen Allergies

Runny nose, itchy eyes and constant sneezing. The pollen allergy is back well and is already back…

Every summer, the same thing. Pollen sensitivity returns, with particularly strong peaks during days when it is very dry and hot. Global warming has not helped, as the number of pollen tops has increased. It is on average four times higher than it was ten years ago.

Exposure to increasingly large amounts of pollen causes allergic diseases, whether respiratory, food or skin, to spread throughout Europe. Blame the changing seasons, pollution and our increasingly sterile lifestyles. But what are the natural remedies to combat pollen allergy? An interview with Marie Veruscht, naturopath.

What are the natural remedies for pollen allergy?

Plants and supplements are very effective. We must also not forget that allergies are an overreaction of the immune system, which is located primarily in the intestines, our “second brain”. So the impact of diet and stress should not be overlooked…

A detox-deficient, anti-inflammatory diet is especially useful, to ease the functioning of the liver which must manage toxins from the allergic reaction. Moreover, sensitivity is more pronounced in people exposed to pollution, because it overloads the liver, which is the organ responsible for the elimination of chemicals.

Some of the most effective plants include:

Black currant bud extract : I recommend 7 drops before your morning and afternoon meal, the equivalent of a sip of water, to hold in the mouth for a minute before swallowing. Avoid it in the evening because black currant activates and stimulates the adrenal glands. Black currant bud extract can be combined with rosemary extract.

plantain : It’s a great antihistamine. It is taken as an infusion (20g per 3 cups, to drink between meals), juice (3 x 10ml per day in a little water) or alcohol (3 x 30 drops/day).

In micro-nutrition:

quercetin : gives good results. It can be taken 2 to 3 times daily as 500 mg capsules. Quercetin is an antioxidant molecule. Red onions, capers, and red fruits and vegetables contain large doses as well.

Omega 3 : Found in small oily fish (sardines, mackerel, etc.). They are also effective anti-inflammatory. Treatment with capsules focusing on these fatty acids enhances treatment in the prevention and support of crises.

– Since the intestines are involved, A cycle of probiotics It may also be helpful in modulating the immune system and supporting the gut microbiota. Certain strains of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria have been scientifically studied and approved. You can take a course of probiotics in capsules, and eat them regularly in the form of kefir, vegetables and other foods fermented with milk.

Finally, make sure you always get a good level of vitamin D, the guardian of our immunity, and take magnesium treatments regularly.

How do you consume it?

It is best to start treatment 1-2 weeks before exposure to the triggers (pollen, animal hair, dust mites, etc.) and follow it alternately between plants and supplements.

Why choose natural remedies over traditional antihistamines?

Natural remedies have fewer side effects (including drowsiness from taking antihistamines). However, not all of them are without it, it is always wise to seek advice from a specialist (herbalist, nutritionist, naturopath…).

For what efficiency?

It is very effective, provided it is taken regularly, in sufficient quantity and quality!

What are the precautions to be taken when ingesting it?

These tips should be adapted when taking anticoagulants, as well as for children and pregnant women.
