If allergy season is taking a toll on you, and you’re tired of reaching for allergy medication and feeling drowsy, you’re not alone!
Did you know that natural options exist that are much safer and effective?
Here are 3 natural ways to find relief from your allergy symptoms
Dry Salt therapy
Dry Salt Therapy, also known as Halotherapy, is an all-natural, safe and drug-free remedy to take care of allergies and other respiratory conditions. Salt has natural antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory benefits that aids in loosening excessive mucus. All of the properties in dry salt therapy make it a gentle and effective modality to take care of all that comes with seasonal allergies: swelling, inflammation, excessive mucus and infection.
Naturally find relief from seasonal allergies, bronchitis, sinusitis, headaches, COPD, cystic fibrosis and more through dry salt therapy. The great part is, you can opt-in to use the dry salt booth on it’s own or as a complementary treatment if you are currently on any prescribed medications for any of the conditions mentioned above.
Allergies can often produce headaches and of course, sinus pressure and congestion. A facial massage uses gentle finger pressure on the head, cheekbones, and around the eyes to help stimulate the release of mucus.
Massage also generates a calming effect through the stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system, reducing the body’s level of stress hormones (cortisol and adrenaline) that are often found responsible for an allergic response.
Essential oils can do more than just create a pleasant scent in your home; they can support your allergy symptoms as well! Many essential oils contain anti-inflammatory properties and work like antihistamines. They can be used in a diffuser or infused into your next massage!
