Allergies Herbal Home Remedies

If you have a runny nose, sore throat and/or itchy eyes, you may be suffering from seasonal allergies. This type of allergy occurs when your body overreacts to pollen from trees or weeds, and sometimes household dust or mold. Hay fever is one variety of this type of allergy.

In addition, there is allergic asthma, conjunctivitis, hives, eczema, dermatitis and sinusitis as well as food allergies, latex allergies, insect sting allergies and drug allergies. (We feel itchy just reading that list!)

There are almost as many different types of allergies as there are people who have them! Obviously, allergies need to be handled on an individual basis. We found a number of remedies that just may help people who suffer from seasonal allergies or hay fever. But-especially if you have allergies-be sure to check with your doctor first.

Allergy Relief

It is said that there are chemicals in bananas that repel allergies-that is, unless you're allergic to bananas. If not, eat a banana daily.

Vitamin-rich watercress is said to be an anti­allergen. Eat it in salads, sandwiches and sauces. It's potent stuff, so eat small portions at a time.

Allergy Prevention

We were told that licorice root (the herb, not the candy) helps build up an immunity to allergens. Add 3 ounces of cut licorice root (available at health food stores) to 1 quart of water. Boil it for 10 minutes in an enamel or glass pot, then strain into a bottle.

Dose: Take 1 tablespoon before each meal, every other day until you've taken the licorice-root. water for six days. By then, we hope, it will make a difference in terms of your resistance to allergies.

CAUTION: Do not take licorice root if you have high blood pressure or kidney problems. It can cause renal failure.
