Seasonal Immue Health

Do you ever experience runny nose, sneezing, coughing, itchy or watering eyes, or sore throat?

 These could be symptoms of allergic hay fever or allergic rhinitis, a seasonal disorder which can be passed down through families or developed at any time of life. Allergies can be to house dust, grasses, tree pollen or animal hair. These allergies create a histamine release in the body which causes a hypersensitive reaction. Approximately 13 million people* in the UK suffer from this condition, ranging from slight sensitivity to severe symptoms. There are several natural approaches to reducing symptoms including eating ginger and garlic, drinking fenugreek tea and increasing omega 3 intake. Below are some recommended products:
