Spring brings us a new wave and mix of allergies in Las Vegas. Whether you are planning on hiking in Red Rock or watching a game, you are bound to be outdoors. While you are excited for the nicer weather, the spring can be a discomfort for those suffering from seasonal allergies. Stuffy and runny nose, itchy and watery eyes causes you not to want to leave the house. But worry no longer and try these 100% natural allergy relief ticks and treatments to breeze through the season:
Halotherapy is the process of breathing dry, micronized salt particles in the form of salt air, which are produced by the Halogenerator. These micronized salt particles can travel to the smallest and deepest areas of the lungs and sinuses. The inhalation of the salt particles helps reduce inflammation in the airways, opens constricted airways, and increases the clearance of mucus. Allergens and pollutants can more easily be eliminated from the body as the mucus thins and as constriction is reduced in the bronchi and bronchioles.
Salt Inhaler is a natural alternative for your steroid inhaler. This ceramic container holds dry Himalayan salt crystals. Signature Salt Room Ceramic Inhaler comes with a bag of pure Himalayan Salt supply. All you have to do is shake well before each use, put your lips around the tube, inhale through your mouth, hold the air for a few seconds, and exhale through your nose. Repeat 3-4 times a day 15 minutes each time, or as needed.
A neti pot is a small pot with a spout. Just mix about 4 ounces of warm water and pure Himalayan white salt (both available at The Salt Room) and flush your sinuses by pouring down one nostril and down the other. The salt solution loosens the mucous and relieves the stuffiness. It’s easy, inexpensive and helps rid allergies without side effects.
Neti pots with Himalayan salt help flush your sinuses with warm salt water … oh boy, doesn’t that sound appealing? Ick factor aside, nasal irrigation with a neti pot cleanses and purifies the sinuses.
The benefits of using a neti pot include reducing or eliminating seasonal allergies, preventing or alleviating a sinus infection, clearing postnasal drip.
Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is a common solution for variety of conditions, such as heartburn, digestive issues, and allergies are also one of them. Just mix a teaspoon of organic unrefined apple cider vinegar with “The Mother” into a glass of water and drink three times a day. This helps relieve acute allergy symptoms and prevents severe allergy attacks.
Nettle leaf is known to be a natural antihistamine. It blocks body’s ability to produce histamine and grows in many places. You can make a tea with it, even mix with other herbs, or you can purchase dried capsules in many health stores.
Even though there is no scientific evidence, but a popular theory suggests that honey produced from local pollen helps lower allergic reactions.
To help keep allergies at bay use a mix of peppermint and eucalyptus oils. The anti-inflammatory properties of peppermint and antimicrobial properties of eucalyptus will help keep sinuses clear. Feel free to add rosemary, lemon or Frankincense essential oils for added boost to your immune system. You can make pocket inhalers or keep a small bottle handy. You can also use the mixture to do steam inhalations several times a day. (Essential oil blends and inhalers are available at both Salt Room locations)
Healthy Nutrition and using Natural alternatives are a big part of keeping your immune system strong, which in its turn will help eliminate Allergy symptoms. And remember to change your filters and use only natural home cleaning and laundry products such as baking soda and vinegar.
Breathe well, live well …
