By Dr. Joseph Mercola

Greetings, dear readers, and welcome to a journey of harmony with nature in managing allergies. I’m Dr. Joseph Mercola, and I’m excited to unveil natural and do-it-yourself (DIY) methods for effectively managing allergies from the comfort of your home. In this article, we’ll explore how to align with the healing power of nature for allergy relief.

The Allergy Challenge

Allergies, whether they manifest as seasonal hay fever, food sensitivities, or skin reactions, can be a relentless challenge. Many people resort to over-the-counter or prescription medications, but these often come with side effects and may not address the root cause. Nature provides numerous solutions for allergy management that can work in harmony with your body’s natural processes.

Identifying Allergy Triggers

Before we dive into natural remedies, it’s crucial to identify your allergy triggers. Common culprits include pollen, dust mites, pet dander, specific foods, and molds. Identifying these triggers will help you develop an effective allergy management plan.

DIY Allergy Management

Now, let’s explore how to harmonize with nature for effective allergy management.

Honey for Seasonal Allergies

Local Honey: Consuming raw, local honey may help your body build a tolerance to the pollen in your region, reducing seasonal allergy symptoms.


  1. Consume a tablespoon of raw, local honey daily.
  2. Begin this practice several weeks before allergy season.

Nasal Irrigation

Nasal irrigation using a saline solution can help clear allergens from your nasal passages.


  • Distilled water
  • Non-iodized salt


  1. Mix 1 teaspoon of non-iodized salt with 1 cup of distilled water.
  2. Use a neti pot or a nasal spray bottle to irrigate your nasal passages.

Allergy-Busting Diet

Diet plays a significant role in managing allergies. Consider an anti-inflammatory diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and omega-3 fatty acids.

Foods to Include:

  • Berries, citrus fruits, and apples
  • Leafy greens
  • Fatty fish like salmon and mackerel
  • Nuts and seeds

Butterbur Extract

Butterbur is an herb with anti-inflammatory properties that may help reduce allergy symptoms.


  1. Consult a healthcare professional before using butterbur extract.
  2. Follow their recommended dosage.

Air Purification

Invest in an air purifier with a HEPA filter to reduce allergens in your home.


  1. Place the air purifier in your bedroom or other frequently used areas.
  2. Regularly change the filter as per the manufacturer’s instructions.

Lifestyle Adjustments

Alongside these natural remedies, consider lifestyle adjustments for effective allergy management:

  • Reduce Exposure: Minimize your exposure to allergens by keeping windows closed during high pollen seasons and using allergen-proof covers on mattresses and pillows.
  • Regular Cleaning: Frequent cleaning of your home, including vacuuming and dusting, can help reduce allergen exposure.
  • Hydration: Staying well-hydrated can help thin mucus and reduce congestion.
  • Stress Management: High stress levels can worsen allergy symptoms. Engage in stress-reduction practices like meditation, yoga, or deep breathing exercises.
