Hi all,

I have been taking the easy option for a number of years now and using OTC antihistamines for treating my severe hay fever symptoms. Unfortunately they don't seem to be doing the job any longer and I'd rather use a natural alternative anyway! What do you all use that effectively combats the sneezing, itching, blocked nose etc?

I've always read that 'Quercetin' and 'Bromelain' are two natural ways to combat allergies naturally.

Doctor's Best do a combination of two which contain 500mgs of Quercitin and 250mgs Bromelain. Some people swear by these. I think one of them (Bromelain) is a derivative of Pineapples.

I'm sure if you google it there will be loads on them about allergies and how they can help.

Good luck.

Maff,

Came acrross these products (Allergena) and thought you could take a look at them. They are homeopathic sublingual drops against allergens, i.e... to build up a tolerance like immunotherapy....perhaps worth taking a look at.

Here's the company:

Here are some reviews:

Oh....and I also have one of these..... nasal light things which i bought in Lloyds pharmacy.

There have been some old studies done this in the past which did seem to show it helped reducing symptoms and if you look at the reviews on amazon it does help a lot of people. I find it does help me too.

I was recently in an allergy clinic at hospital and i showed the Dr my nasal light and his two 'Italian' Doctors who were sitting in with him started to smuggly laugh and even took photos of it with their mobiles. It was only when my Doctor said that he knew an old colleague who had done some research into light therapy for allergies and had quite some success that their smug smiles soon disappeared.

Lloyds pharmacy sometimes do offers on it when you can get it for half price. Otherwise this one at amazon looks similar to mine.

I might try one of these, I'm plagued with ongoing sinus infection atm, 5 weeks and counting, think it's probably part of a mast cell prob, easily triggered by something in the environment, which then seems to set off infection. Can be kept at bay using netipot with boiled salted water 3 x day, but a lot of faffing about and not very practical if you're out and about. Tried grapefruit seed + xylitol spray for kids, supposed to be effective, but just made my nose hurt like hell! :o/
