Hay fever affects between 10% and 30% of the population worldwide. With this figure on the rise and hay fever accounting for over 17 million doctor visits per year, what can we do to combat it?
Foods that help with hay fever come via our bee friends. Bee pollen is very high in B vitamins, particularly Vitamin B5, which supports the adrenal glands and helps with any allergic responses in the body. Wheatgrass juice is also an excellent source of high levels of Vitamin B5.
Avoid exposure. Stay indoors as much as possible and wear sunglasses to protect the eyes when out. Using a barrier cream around the nose can help as can washing hands and clothes when returning in from outside.
Stay hydrated. Dehydration causes an increase in the production of histamine which can cause the body to have the same symptoms as seasonal allergies. Drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated will help prevent this.
Unfortunately, there is currently no cure for hay fever but taking the above steps can help alleviate some of the symptoms.
