Happy Spring! DIY Allergy Relief
Tulips and cherry blossoms are blossoming...The leaves are back on the trees...The yellow pollen is snowing all over our cars...And we cannot stop sneezing and sniveling!
A simple trip to your local farmers market might be in order. Visit your local honey vendor for sweet relief.
"Try taking one tablespoon of raw local honey daily, such as by stirring some into tea, adding some to oatmeal along with cinnamon, or putting some in your smoothies.
What makes raw honey so powerful at reducing allergies? One reason is because it contains bee pollen, which is known to ward off infections and allergies and boost immunity.
The bees living in your area go from flower to flower collecting pollen that you are suffering from. It would make sense then that eating local raw honey will help build up your immunity to local pollen.
Honey also contains many enzymes that supports overall immune function, which helps with allergy relief." -- Dr. Axe
