Natural allergy remedies

As a life long hayfever sufferer and former asthmatic ( Since quitting dairy I haven’t had an asthma attack or used an inhaler) I know just how bothersome allergies can be, my natural cures now are taking a spoonful of local honey through the summer months to ease roblems, I also put a barrier cream such as coconut oil on my nostrils if I am going to the allotment or countryside, I also juice a lot and try and keep my immune system good.

I discovered this great article about more natural ways to cure allergies on Mother Earth news:
