You could try a neti-pot to do a little sinus wash.
The use of a neti-pot requires mixing up a saline solution (salt and water) that will be poured through the nasal passages. The neti-pot used with a saline solution has been shown to be an effective treatment for hay fever, sinusitis, and other nasal conditions. Both isotonic and hypertonic chloride solutions are used for Neti.
“A neti pot is a safe way to irrigate and clean your sinuses but only when done properly. Neti pot danger only happens if you don’t follow the right direction on how to use this nose bidet.”
Some herbal remedies for hay fever include butterbur (shrub-like plant native to North America, northern Asia, and Europe that relieves itchy eyes, sneezing and congestion), Quercetin (natural antihistamine found in apple skin, berries, black tea, red grapes/onions, and suppliments), and Carotenoids (reduce airway inflamation and found in apricots, carrots, pumpkin, sweet potato, kale, collard greens, and spinach). Also, identifying environmental or food allergies help to pinpoint the cause of hay fever so you know what to avoid.
Natural remedies for hay fever include the use of butterbur (Petasites hybridus). Butterbur is a herb that is considered to be a natural allergy treatment. It works just like allergy medications by “blocking the action of histamine and leukotrienes, inflammatory chemicals involved in allergic reactions.”
Butterbur is taken in the form of tablets. Side effects may include indigestion, headache, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or constipation. Pregnant women, children, or people with kidney or liver disease should not take butterbur. People who are allergic to ragweed, marigold, daisy, or chrysanthemum should also refrain from using butterbur.
There are a bunch of other home remedies for hay fever such as adding honey to minced grapefruit and lemon, and taking this 3 times daily. More home remedies are available at ayurvediccure.com.
Eating local honey has also been shown through anectodal evidence to improve hay fever symptoms. Students at Xavier University in New Orleans conducted an informal study where the group that was eating local honey noted the most improvement. The basic mechanism is that eating honey gradually introduces local allergens into the allergy sufferer’s body so that it simulates the process of immunotherapy, or allergy shots.
