Armor Up for the Allergy Battle

It’s hard to feel beautiful when your eyes are swollen and red and you keep sneezing your mascara off. If you and your kids suffer from seasonal allergies, there are lots of ways to relieve your suffering besides finding the right medication. Natural remedies, a healthy diet, and tactics to reduce allergens in your home and bed will help your whole family cope better with seasonal allergy symptoms.

If you’re like most people, you and your children might spend as much as 90 percent of your time indoors. Finding ways to keep allergens out of your house will go a long way toward reducing your symptoms. First, make sure your HVAC system is well-maintained, and change your filters often. If you are still having allergy symptoms inside your home, you may want to add a whole-house air purifier to your system. Next, make sure your beds are made up with allergy-proof bedding, so you’re not sleeping in a pile of pollen, pet dander, and dust mite droppings. Sheets with a pore size of six micrometers or less will help keep dust mites out of your bedding.

Home remedies like nettle tea, local honey, and apple cider vinegar may not be strong enough to relieve your worst symptoms, but they might take the edge off so you can get through some days without medications. A healthy diet will also help your body fight off invaders more effectively.

This infographic covers all these ideas and more, with lots of details to help you fight your family’s allergies more effectively.
