Anyone know anything that can help with mild hayfever? I’m really getting sick of sneezing so much.October 23, 2010 at 1:51 am #480616kathyMember
They say if you buy locally produced honey that is produced within 10 kms of your place.it will contain minute amounts of pollen from the local flora .A spoonful everyday will desensitise you to the pollen in your area .Lots of people swear by this . Good luckOctober 23, 2010 at 4:29 am #480617redhen2Member
i logged on to investigate just this topic. I am fairly new to the world of hayfever and it’s getting worse (now its 3rd year).
I read somewhere that 5 nasturtium leaves and 5 flowers a day can knock it over. my vine has just started flowering, so it can’t support that kind of consumption. however, i’ve had a few today and i think it’s helping. it could be placebo effect, but i don’t care.
otherwise, i’m thinking drugs. i can’t take any more.October 23, 2010 at 6:00 am #480618
Thanks guys, this is the first year I have had it. It’s only the sneezing and a slightly sore nose. But it’s really irritating and I’d love to avoid taking any drugs.
redhen, I might try the nasturtium leaves and flowers. We have an immense amount of them [pity you aren’t closer or I would give you more than enough!]October 23, 2010 at 7:11 am #480619crookieMember
Our whole family suffer from varying degrees of hayfever due to different grasses, pollens, animals, and dust! We have noticed that any foods with ‘numbers’ in it sets off our daughter terribly (flavour enhancers particularly). I have recently changed to a near-vegan diet and am noticing that is helping. Perhaps due to the dairy? Anyway these things might be worth looking at if you haven’t yet.October 23, 2010 at 7:29 am #480620GiannaMember
Can’t help you with the actual hay fever but this link shows you how to unblock nose with pressure points and it works for me.October 23, 2010 at 2:26 pm #480621ErthgirlMember
Garlic Horseradish and Vitamin C tablets (with added marshmallow and fenugreek.) I think it’s Nature’s Own brand… works a treat for hubby’s hayfever.October 25, 2010 at 2:53 am #480622
Been trying the nasturtium flowers and leaves for the last few days. And it does appear to be working! :tup: Only sneezed once since Friday and that sneeze was this morning because I had to rush out this morning to get to OH who’d had a prang with a minibus.October 25, 2010 at 4:21 am #480623osakasuzMember
There are excellent Chinese herbal remedies for this. My husband takes different ones at different times. They work extremely well – within minutes. If you have a Chinatown or an area where lots of Chinese supermarket type places are, you’ll find a Chinese herbalist with the good stuff!October 25, 2010 at 7:18 am #480624marzMember
I found a product that helped with my hayfever, sinus, migraines, allergies and eczema. If anyone wants to know what it is they can PM me. Not putting it on here coz I’ll get kicked off for ‘flogging’ stuff.October 25, 2010 at 8:12 am #480625purplehatMember
I drink chamomile tea. Really helps DH and me get over our mild heyfever. No sweeteners, or milk, just plain tea. Lovely!
