Some common remedies for allergies includes the following:

YOGA : It has been proven by studies that yoga reduces allergic reactions, improves the stamina of the respiratory system, and drains mucus from your lungs. Here is a simple yoga exercise: sitting on the floor with your legs in front of you, raise your arms above your head, stretch toward the ceiling and inhale.  Now bend forward and exhale, reaching for your toes while keeping your back straight.  Gently hold this position for a few moments, then release.  Repeat three times.

ALLERGY SHOTS: An allergy blood test will usually be able to pinpoint the allergy culprit. If this is recommended by your doctor, please ensure you by all means get the tests. I remember having a skin irritation from an allergy, and the cure to the skin irritation symptoms I was experiencing was taking my shots ( injections).

AVOID ALLERGENS : It would help if your can install air conditioning in your apartment, house and car to remove allergens from your environment. To help alleviate your runny nose, itchy eyes and sneezing and headache, an over-the-counter antihistamine can dry up your runny nose and itchy eyes. Decongestants will unclog your throat and lungs, and aspirin or other formulas will relieve fever.

DECONGESTANT SPRAYS : If  you’re already suffering from allergy symptoms,  consider the homeopathic zinc spray Zicam.  It’s usually marketed as a cold remedy, but studies are showing it’s also highly effective against allergies.  In fact, research suggests that women are 10 times more likely to be cured of allergy symptoms if they take Zicam for four weeks,making it as effective as many prescription medications.

Research further suggests that  while the antihistamines Claritin and Allegra ease allergies for about half of sufferers, prescription nasal sprays like Flonase (fluticasone) and  Nasonex (mometasone) are far better at shutting down nasal symptoms such as congestion, itching, sneezing and dripping.

Doctors report that nasal sprays work for an incredible 95% of patients who try them.  They can be used as needed, instead of having to take them daily for months on end. Start when your symptoms strike, and  you’ll see dramatic improvements in just five days.

SWEEP AWAY DUST : Not mere dirt, house dust is actually an amazing assortment of minute particles of bug fragments, mold spores, bits of plastic and a lot more.  Dust is really a menace in the winter when your windows are closed and your furnace is fanning dust everywhere.  Your best defense is a clean house. Wear a dust-filtering mask while you clean and open the windows for a while if it’s not too cold. Better yet, get someone else to clean for you.

Other natural remedies for allergies are:

Butterbur: Butterbur is another name for petasites, a shrub with huge leaves. The plant is toxic but some studies show butterbur is effective in treating allergy symptoms.
Quercetin: A herbal supplement that has been shown to reduce sinus pain and congestion. It is said that vitamin C actually may improve the effectiveness by reducing inflammation. One problem, however,is it is unclear how much you need to take, so you may have to experiment.

Homeopathic Nasal Mists: Saline and salt water sprays help wash away the pollen from the nose, which can remove the problem and reduce the need for medication. Plus, they are inexpensive.
