This might be an odd question, but I'd like to get feedback from people who I know care about what goes in their bodies. Does anyone have any experience with homeopathic or all-natural allergy relief? I have terrible hay fever this year, and on a few days, it's been really hard to exercise and go to work. Claritin makes me extremely anxious and Benedryl and Zyrtec put me to sleep, lol. Allegra did absolutely nothing to help this year. I am at my wits end! Any feedback would help! I know that asking for medical advice online isn't the best idea--I'm just looking to hear about people's experiences, if anyone has any. Thanks! ๐Ÿ˜Š
I use NeilMed Sinus Rince every morning and it helpsย SO much.ย  It takes some getting used to but if you use it consistantly you will see (feel) the difference. you can get it at WalMart or any drug store.ย  ย  www.neilmed.com - MXPrincess399   646.8 #258 5-7-12 2:47PM Like(1)  Reply
Just make sure to use distilled water, unless it is pre packaged saline. My co-worker and his wife used this (and tap water). Both got nasty sinus and ear infections. - Sugarbuzz  159.6 #2433 5-7-12 6:01PM
Ok--thank you both! This is helpful! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  549.9 #322 5-7-12 7:52PM
Yes. I think you can use cooled, boiled water too, just make sure to read the directions. - MXPrincess399  646.8 #258 5-8-12 6:49PM
I do think the cooled boiled water works. I think it has to be boiled for so many minutes. Can't remember how long though. I forgot about that, or just a little lazy. - Sugarbuzz  159.6 #2433 5-8-12 11:39PM
Have you tried local natural honey? Probably too late for right now but it is supposed to build up immunities to local pollin. - sewgirl   342.6 #618 5-7-12 8:21PM Like  Reply
I tried it last year, but it didn't really work. I might not have started early enough? - Spoonful_O_Sugar  549.9 #322 5-7-12 8:35PM
I'm of no help! I take Zyrtec 3 days a week and live in a fog all 3 of them! - Squirtortue   311.1 #750 5-7-12 9:37PM Like  Reply
Lol, isn't it awful! There must be a better way! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  549.9 #322 5-8-12 7:03AM
I have hay fever as long as I can remember and experienced the exact same thing with every allergy drug you mentioned. The only thing that works for me is the original Sudafed (although I never spend money on the brand name - I always go for the cheaper, store version).  When I say "original" I mean the version that they now keep behind the counter and you have to show ID in order to buy it.  I remember when Longs put their brand on sale for $1.99 a box, I'd buy like 5 at a time.  Now if you do that, they think you're a meth dealer!  Still the best IMO - msdizmaui   632.1 #270 5-7-12 10:59PM Like  Reply
I might just try Sudafed for when they're really bad. It gives me anxiety if I take it too much, but it does work! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  549.9 #322 5-8-12 7:04AM
Sorry I can't help with this SOS!.. Hope you find some relief - Twinklelashes   146.4 #2628 5-8-12 7:13AM Like  Reply

We use the Kirkland brand non drowsy AllerClear pills. They are 10mg of Loratadine and work for 24 hours. :) - Darlingwendi   897.9 #172 5-8-12 1:42PM Like  Reply
Thank you, but I had a bad reaction to loratadine (major anxiety problems), so I can't take it anymore :( - Spoonful_O_Sugar  549.9 #322 5-8-12 5:33PM
I've tried the local honey thing, it worked well for me. It didn't take all of the allergies away, but it was an improvement to taking 1-8 pills a day. - Mrs.mouse   517.1 #353 5-8-12 6:57PM Like  Reply
Thanks! If you dont mind, could you tell me a little more? I tried local honey last year and it didn't help, but I think I started taking it late? How early do you need to start and how much do you take per day? - Spoonful_O_Sugar  549.9 #322 5-8-12 8:45PM
They say you need several tbs a day, take it straight. I always buy local honey. I started swapping it for sugar as I could in recipes. I didn't straight eat it. For some it could be necessary to follow the directions. For me I didn't. I started around February. Hope it helps - Mrs.mouse  517.1 #353 5-12-12 2:05PM
I'll try this next year--probably add it to tea. Thank you for the feedback! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  549.9 #322 5-12-12 3:32PM
Hi! This may sound weird but I tried juicing for 2 weeks and it really helped my body to detoxify You can check out the website: http://www.jointhereboot.com/index.php?lang=en - rickandyvonne   11.3 #8751 5-12-12 9:18AM Like  Reply
Thank you--this doesn't sound weird at all. It makes sense to rid your body of toxins. I usually just make a green monster in the morning, so I haven't juiced for any length of time. I'll look into it more. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  549.9 #322 5-12-12 10:09AM
My kids pediatrician recommended local honey as well, seemed to have worked for them this year. I was also told that each year you have to use a different allergy medicine (zyrtec, allegra etc) or they don't work, I haven't experienced trying this but the person who told me says it's true. - disneymommy0910   234.4 #1428 5-14-12 3:20PM Like  Reply
Local honey helps! And it's yummy! - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  701.6 #232 6-5-12 11:17AM
The sinus rinse does help, the instructions come with the pot on how to use distilled vs boiled water. I have to admit, the first few times I used it, I freaked out, it feels really weird, but I got used to it. I also found a homeopathic nasal spray, but my son took it to school with him. Check out whole foods if youre near one! - tinkerbella728   175.7 #2180 6-5-12 11:47AM Like  Reply
