Seasonal Allergy Support
Minimising our exposure to allergens is key to supporting our body during the allergy season, but sometimes this is not always possible. Fortunately, there are many ways we can support our body through diet and through supplementation with herbs and nutrients.
To support our body’s natural immune response, it’s important to eat a wholefood diet rich in fruit and vegetables. Some foods that may provide extra support include:
- oranges, apples, peaches, berries
- watercress, broccoli, capers, mung beans
- onions, garlic, ginger, fennel
- peppermint, chamomile and nettle tea
- plenty of water
Foods that are recommended to be avoided during the allergy season include:
- matured cheeses
- processed meats
- fermented and pickled foods
Supplementing with additional herbs and nutrients can also help to support our body’s natural response to allergens. Quercetin, Bromelain and Vitamin C are favourites for supporting healthy histamine levels. The synergy between each of these ingredients greatly enhances their effectivity also provides high levels of antioxidants. The powerful properties of antioxidants also help to support the natural healing processes of our body, including the natural healing response to allergens.
