Those suffering from allergies know the intense pain and suffering one goes through when sneezing, coughing or itching through the night. Whether it is a reaction to certain food, dust, pollen or pet hair, an upcoming allergy has the ability to cast a dark shadow on the mood and energy for the day. From kids to adults to grandparents, anyone can fall prey to an allergy at any given moment of time. And if anyone suffers from them regularly, it can be quite a hassle to keep popping allopathic pills. Instead you can try out some of these home remedies to help you the next time someone in the family comes down with an expected or unexpected allergy.

  1. Vitamin C

One of the best treatments for an allergic reaction is to supply your body with sufficient vitamin C. It helps to boost the immune system and even strengthens it to fight the allergy and prevent it from staying too long. Vitamin C is a natural antihistamine and can be consumed two to three times a day without worry unlike allopathic pills. You can consume vitamin C based fruits, drinks or vegetables to let them take effect. You can even make it a habit to regularly consume it so that it strengthens the immune system and prevents or subdues allergic reactions in the future. Lemon is one amazing source of vitamin C. You can add lemon to your foods, or drink lemon based juices which have a more concentrated effect. Find out more information about it here.


  1. Turmeric

Turmeric has a very important place in the Indian kitchen, and every home is incomplete without it. Little do people know that it also has antihistamine properties that can fight allergies. The curcumin content in this spice alleviates the symptoms of the allergy and can provide relief from a congested respiratory track. To use turmeric as an allergy treatment, add a spoonful of it to warm water and drink it through the day. You can also use it a buffer against allergic reactions by drinking a glass of warm water with turmeric every night before bedtime. Click here to read more about the benefits of turmeric. 

  1. Steam

One of the most common allergic reaction is a congested nasal passage and blocked sinuses. This is particularly common with children. To treat this kind of an allergy, you can opt for a steaming treatment. Taking in the warm steam instantly helps to clear the nasal passages and sinuses and make it easier to breathe providing relief from the allergy. Doing this two to three times a day can greatly help in treating the congestion problem and alleviate the symptoms faster. To take steam, boil water in a pot or vessel and add a few drops of eucalyptus oil to it. Eucalyptus has menthol which can relieve the blockage and soothe inflammations. Then cover the head with a towel so that the steam doesn’t escape and inhale the steam over the pot of boiling water. Be careful not to burn yourself though.

  1. Honey

Organic and naturally sourced honey is a wonderful solution for allergy problems. It is extremely delicious and also contains innumerable properties which help treat reactions and allergic symptoms. It is best to opt for raw and organic honey which is unprocessed to ensure that the beneficial properties are not washed away in the sourcing and manufacturing process. Keep a pot full of honey at home and consume it regularly throughout the year. It keeps symptoms away and strengthens the immune system making it difficult for the allergies to invade the body. You can have it by the spoonful, add to your cereal, spread it on toast or add it to warm water and drink it every day. It’s delicious and convenient to use.
