With naturopathic medicine becoming more and more popular, it’s becoming prevalent for pharmacists to have a broad understanding of the subject as well. Now, for many problems, you can ask your local pharmacy about natural remedies for outdoor allergies and see what they recommend! There are so many options out there, but these are the ones that people swear by!

Nasal Rinses

Nasal rinses are probably the most recommended natural remedies for outdoor allergies that a pharmacy will recommend to you. This is because it WORKS. It’s a method that has been proven time and time again and should be embraced by all who need allergy help.

Nasal rinses, in simple terms, are saline solutions that you poor into one nostril while tilting your head to the opposite side. When you do this, the saline rinse goes up and around your nasal cavity and out the other side, bringing with it all the allergens making you feel sick. You can do this at home with the proper mixture of salt and water, but we recommend purchasing a nettle pot and proper rinses to ensure you’re getting the best results possible!

Steam Showers

Steam is another one of the best options because it loosens up the mucus in the face and brings it down and out. Steam naturally opens up the sinus cavities, making it easier for you to breathe, loosening the mucus so that it can drain out of the body, and often times decreasing allergy side effects along the way. You can engage in steam showers, baths, or even just hold your face above a steaming pot of water – just don’t get too close or you will burn yourself!

Hydration

Yes, this is often overstated, but it’s overstated for a good reason. Ensuring you are staying hydrated is by far one of the most efficient natural remedies for outdoor allergies that you will hear. More specifically, hydrating with good old fashion water. If you don’t like water, figure out a way to enjoy it. Add fruit to your water, add natural flavoring, come up with a reward system, whatever you have to do. Water is what helps the body flush out toxins, keep mucus thin, and prevent seasonal allergies form building up in the body.

Eating Leafy Greens

Leafy green veggies contain Quercetin. This is a bioflavonoid that regulates the production and release of histamine. Histamine is essentially your worst enemy when it comes to allergies. It’s the reason you get itchy eyes, watery eyes, stuffy or runny noses, sneezes, etc. When you control the histamine, you control the allergies. Now, to some degree, we do need histamine, but when we have allergies, we are overproducing this substance.

By increasing your intake of veggies like broccoli, leaks, green onions, etc. you will increase your Quercetin and thus control your allergies!
