Inexpensive Allergy Remedies

Spring is a beautiful time to be outside. For some, however, all that beauty brings allergies. Sneezing, coughing, and overall discomfort is another sign of spring. Here are a few tips to save money when treating seasonal allergies.

Keep a Clean Home

Warmer temperatures means open windows. This can cause dust and pollen to build up, so make sure you clean often. Many allergies are triggered when you first start your spring cleaning. All of the grime and dirt accumulated causes a reaction. If you make a habit of cleaning regularly, your allergies won’t be as severe.

Vitamin D

Getting your vitamin D through the food you eat, or outside activity in the sun, will help fight allergies. Vitamin D helps with inflammation, and that is good news for your throat and sinuses. Fish like salmon and tuna are great sources of vitamin D, as well as vegetables like spinach, kale, and okra. If you have low vitamin D levels there are also supplements you can purchase at your local pharmacy.

Herbal Tea

Drinking hot tea is a great way to open up your sinuses and sooth your throat. Certain herbal teas like chamomile and ginger also fight inflammation. Adding honey to your tea will help comfort a sore throat. Not to mention, having a cup of hot tea is a great way to relax at the end of the day. Sometimes the best way to fight allergies is rest and relaxation.
