Herbal Remedies for Allergies

Seasonal Allergies and Hay fever

licorice (Atimaturam)


Herbal Remedies, Licorice is a multipurpose herb that can reduce inflammation in the body and is used to treat mild allergies. It is effective at reducing the symptoms of allergies in a modest way because it has anti-histamine characteristics.
Licorice can be drunk as a tea, with one cup consumed as needed. Supplements can be used to treat long-term allergies, with the suggested amount ranging from 100 to 300 mg per day, depending on the severity of your symptoms.

Note: Licorice cannot be taken by those with high blood pressure, sufferers of heart disease and people with low potassium levels.

Stinging Nettles

Stinging Nettle

Herbal Remedies, Stinging Nettles, like licorice, have anti-histamine effects and can help to reduce inflammation. It is also quite gentle on the body, with few negative effects. A cup of stinging nettle tea is good for allergies. However, it will have a moderate, green, and earthy flavour that many people appreciate. During heating or processing, remove the stings. If you’d like to try nettles for your allergies, just make sure that you buy freeze dried encapsulated nettles. This is due to the fact that they contain the highest concentration of antihistamine characteristics.

The recommended dose is 300mg taken 4 times a day. This can be be drunk in tea form or even cooked into soups.

Note: it is not suitable for pregnant women’s or breastfeeding or for those who are taking blood thinning drugs like warfarin.
