If you are looking for alternative ways to fight allergies, you are in luck; here are some helpful tips.
Fighting the good fight against allergies
The theory behind honey is that if you eat local honey from bees that live in your area, the nectar created by the flowers that they draw from has pollen grains in it that are local to your area. Taking a spoonful of this about one month before spring starts is almost like a natural form of homeopathy, in which you’re being exposed to tiny amounts of the allergen, which helps you become resistant to it. New York City recently approved beekeeping, and one brand, called Hi-Rise Hive, is sold at local health food stores. The theory hasn’t been proven by a double blind study yet, but as long as you don’t give honey to a child under a year old, it’s a safe remedy and it won’t do any harm to try it.
