(NaturalNews) As spring approaches, many of us are gearing up to battle seasonal allergies. This year, the battle may be harder because of the weather this past winter. In fact, many people are already experiencing some of the symptoms of seasonal allergies, and those might only get worse. An allergy specialist out of West Michigan, Dr. Vincent Dubravec, recently said that the release of tree pollen has been pushed backed to the start of early summer due to the weather patterns delaying spring-like temperatures.

Dr. Vincent Dubravec said, "The trees are just starting to bud, and I suspect another strong allergy season like last spring." With seasonal allergies affecting over 50 million Americans (according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention) it's no wonder that allergy season is dreaded across the nation. The symptoms commonly trigger itching in the nose, throat, mouth and eyes, along with sneezing and runny/stuffy nose, which can totally drain a person of energy (it can even induce asthma symptoms)!

Natural Remedies

Although you can see your local healthcare provider or buy something at your local grocery store which will make you pass out in 20 minutes, there are many natural remedies you can try to prevent or reduce your allergy symptoms.

Local raw honey: Consuming LOCAL honey made from the trees, flowers and other plants around your area can help you build up a tolerance to those plants. Eating a few spoonfuls a day could do the trick to rid you of your allergies!

Raw apple cider vinegar: This stuff can help prevent allergies before they even start by blocking histamine and therefore reducing the inflammation that is a common symptom of allergies. You can consume a shot of raw apple cider vinegar as a 1:1 ratio with water in the morning (even up to three times a day) to prevent allergies from occurring! Don't drink it too fast, as it can burn the throat.

Quercetin: This compound has been found to mimic the anti-histamine properties of some allergy drugs! Adding foods that are high in quercetin to your diet can help you naturally block some histamine related to allergies. Foods naturally high in quercetin are garlic, onion, apples and cayenne pepper.

Chamomile: This is commonly used to reduce the itchiness associated with many allergies (for instance, poison ivy), but you can also place wet chamomile tea bags on your eyes (let sit for 10 minutes) to reduce itchiness there as well! Plus, you will have a nice, delicious cup of tea!

As always, the natural approach can be just as effective (if not more so) and healthier than buying over-the-counter remedies! By experimenting with some of these natural remedies, this year's increased, prolonged allergy season might have minimal effects on you!
