Add seafood to your diet
First of all, try adding foods like walnuts, flaxseed, and fish to your diet. These foods are rich in essential omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s have anti-inflammatory properties that help to calm allergy inflammation.
Spice it up
You may have recognized the last time you went to a Mexican restaurant and bit into a chip loaded with spicy salsa that your nose began to run. Women’s Health Magazine explains this is because spicy foods work to “decongest your sinuses, increase circulation, and clear away head-clogging mucus.” Try adding a little cayenne or chili peppers to your next dish and make sure you have a box of tissues nearby.
Repel the dust
Interestingly enough, almost half of the dust we find inside our houses comes from outside. This means you are tracking those nasty little allergens in with you on the bottom of your feet. Invest in a doormat and reduce the dust by 10-25%. Take off your shoes altogether before coming inside for even better effect. Cannot keep away from the allergens? Be proactive. AllergyRelief101.com suggests, ““Take anti-histamine] an hour or two ahead of time. This can allow [it] to be circulating with your system, in advance of your exposure, and can reduce or get rid of the resulting response.”

Yes, increase your intake of Omega 3s. ALA, EPA And DHA are found in walnuts, flax, hemp seeds, fish...
Omega 3 decreases inflammation in the body. Omega 6 (we get too much already in our diet) increases inflammation.
Use a GLASS or CERAMIC bowl approximately 1 quart size half filled with DISTILLED water and about 4 ounces of brandy, cover with a screen fixed into place with tape or an elastic band, place where the allergen is present. The screen keeps out large particles and bugs. Check water every day and refill to original level also add a small amount of brandy. Do this for up to one week, you will now need a 30ml. dropper bottle, which you should be able to buy at a drug store. Fill this to ¾ full with brandy shake by hitting bottle on a book 40 times. Empty the brandy and take about 50 droppers full of the liquid allergen and place into the dropper bottle (do not use metal to transfer liquid), you require approximately 1/3 to ½ of the bottle being filled, shake 40 times by hitting the bottle on a book, pour out the entire contents of the bottle, replace with distilled water filling the bottle to ¾ full, repeat the shaking by hitting on a book forty 40 times, diluting and shaking 12 times after the 11th time replace the water with straight brandy as this preserves the remedy. This is known as a Korsakovian mixture, the residues left in the bottle having enough of the energy from the allergen to make an effective medicine. To learn more about why we diluted check out “How Homeopathic Remedies are Made” on line.
Dosage 10 drops 1 time daily, morning or evening, stop when there is improvement.
I treated a young boy (11yrs) who had for 3 or 4 years a serious problem with spring air born allergens, prior to using this remedy the young fellow would cough until he broke blood vessels on his face. The treatment was required for two weeks, he is now twenty five and has had no recurring allergies.

The bees bring in the local pollens, and using a bit of the honey daily in something like hot tea has helped my body build up some immunity. I don't buy any honey collected from hives more than 2-4 miles from my house. I don't use a lot of sweeteners so I have to make a dedicated effort prior to spring and fall pollen times to consume tea with honey.
Yes, it has to be local and raw. Commercial bee pollen and other honey products wont work. Although with all the antibiotics in commercial honey these days, it can be a good treatment for stubborn infections
My wife and oldest child went to get allergy tests and although my son had no reaction whatsoever, my wife reacted to everything. She's even allergic to dandelion. Any suggestions?
