I get very bad hay fever all the time. I have had enough of taking over-the-counter drugs. What sort of natural things would help treat the symptoms?
One of the first things you need to do is look at your gut function. The gastrointestinal system is an important part of the immune system. If your gut function is impaired in any way, such as leaky gut, you become much more sensitive to allergens. So a program to heal your gut would be a good place to start. It can be very helpful to get a naturopath to help you with this.
Good supplements to help heal your gut are L-glutamine and N-acetylglucosamine.
A good remedy, when you are in the throes of an attack, is to take a Schuessler cell salt called ferrum phos. Chew a couple every hour while you are feeling awful. Usually the symptoms go away after a day.
Another good supplement is horseradish and garlic. Start taking this a month before you expect your personal hay fever season to begin.
