  • I have suffered with Chronic Allergies since a small child. My immunologist explained it as my body always carrying a "low infection like symptoms". Yes, they are horrible and I feel miserable as well 90% of the time. I live in Florida, where allergies are at the absolute worst. One thing that helps me is doing the Neti Pot. It's natural and safe and cleanses out your sinus cavities. Maybe you could give ita try.

  • @christmaslver68: The Neti Pot looks like a small version of a tea pot. You can get it anywhere such as Walgreens or CVS. You mix warm (not hot!) water with one packet of saline, which you find at Walgreen, etc, as well. You stir well. Then you tilt your head to one side and pour the water in one nostril. It will come out of the other. Repeat on the other side.
    Sounds weird, feels weird at first..but works and it is natural without side effects. Basically its purpose is to clean sinus cavities where pollen and allergens and mucus gets stuck and there is no way that even blowing your name can get this stuff out. It doesn’t heart at all. The warm water and saline basically clean out the passages by draining all the crap that is up there. It is soothing and when you first start, you will see all kinds of yucky stuff come out. Yes, it is gross, BUT do you want to keep that up there? I don’t.

  • I've also heard that digestive problems and malnutrition can worsen your allergies. I am trying to be better at that. Another less known remedie is to wash your hair at night prior to going to bed. Research says that pollen and other allergens accumulate in our hair during the day. Then at night time, we bring it in our bed an we sleep in close contact with these allergens which are now spreading on our sheets and pillow cases. Washing your hair at night is supposed to clear you up from any of that. Also, drink ALOT. It will release toxins and allergens from your system.
