Get some local honey. The bees pollinate on the pollen that is causing your allergies. This will help tremendously.

We got some when dd was dealing with rsv that ended up being allergies (we think). No more wheezing.

Re: seasonal allergies!!! any natural remedies?

I had seasonal allergies since I was 5 years old till I cleared up my diet and such. These were the only thing that worked well and are homepathic so are supposed to be safe to take while pg. I haven't had allergy issues in years till this pregnancy, so I just bought some of these. Oh the relief! I was also waking up at night sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, etc...

As with all homeopathic stuff, take when you have a clean pallette - usually 1/2 hour after or more after you eat/drink something other than water and wait for at least 1/2 hour to eat/drink anything if possible. Helps it work better.

I'd say yes on the honey but it does raise blood sugar for those who have problems with it.

Raw, unfiltered, local honey. It is amazing - I am finally allergy free without medications!
