Allergies Kicking In? Try This…

Fall will soon be upon us. Beautiful leaves, crisp air, and for many of us, allergies. I have struggled with severe fall and spring allergies since high school. I have done years of allergy injections and medications. Every once in a while my allergies get so bad that I have even had the privilege of getting an inhaler…woo hoo!

I was miserable this spring and started reading online (ok mostly on Pinterest…not scientific, I know) about more natural allergy relief solutions. I stumbled upon a lot of information about local honey as well as apple cider vinegar. I found recommendations of drinking hot water with apple cider vinegar and honey. Now this did not sound too appealing to me. Some sources said to add lemon to help the flavor. Based on what I was able to find, here is what I came up with:

  • 1 Tbsp local honey
  • 1 Tbsp Bragg’s Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar (it has to be this one)
  • 1 cup lemon tea



This tea is non-caffeinated, has a boost of vitamin C, and is very tasty!

During bad bouts of allergy symptoms I drink this in the morning and at night. I still take an allergy medication every day too, but this drink seems to relieve some of the other pesky symptoms. I am not a doctor, holistic health professional, or any type of person that can give medical advice, however, this is a natural tea that has helped me with allergy symptoms.


Happy Sneezing! Well, hopefully not!

    I stopped drinking dairy milk and eating yoghurt in April just before our summer started. I’ve basically had no allergies for the first time in thirty years. ( I are a piece of cheese cake and had one sneezy day. ) normal cheese and butter is okay.
