26 million...that's how many people suffer from seasonal allergies in the US. Billions of tissues, millions of shots, and billions of pills. BILLIONS OF PILLS? Some people are perfectly okay with taking a few pills here and there but there are many members of the sniffling, sneezing and itching community that don't want to depend on drugs. They provide temporary relief from allergies, but for only certain symptoms, and often come with harmful side effects. They can impair driving, cause confusion and mental fatigue. People who suffer from allergies are statistically shown to be up to 14 times more likely to experience migraine headaches than those who don't have allergies also.
Most allergy meds attempt to combat the combatants that combat the allergies in your body (say that one 5 times fast). Basically the medication's job is to stop your body from fighting the bad stuff that's inside your body. Now I'm no doctor, but somehow that seems counterproductive doesn't it? Many natural remedies are designed to beat your reactions before they actually occur, which in many cases can be better than getting drugged up on meds. Check out our list of 6 natural remedies for allergies.
