Here Are Natural Ways To Keep Allergies At Bay

Eat Local Honey

One of the leading causes of seasonal allergies is a sensitivity to pollen, leading to increased symptoms in spring. That’s why some suggest consuming local honey, which may contain trace amounts of pollen from the area.

Though more research is needed, one study in Malaysia found that consuming high amounts of honey did have a positive impact on allergies. Another option is to take bee pollen supplements. Exposing the body to this pollen may help build its resistance to allergens, resulting in fewer symptoms over time.
