Seasonal allergies are a little bit like torture. After a long winter, Spring finally arrives and you look forward to being outside to enjoy the warmer weather. And then your allergies kick in because everything is budding and sprouting and there are all sorts of pollen and other allergens in the air. So you end up congested, coughing and sneezing. Spring is wonderful but it does trigger allergies for many of us. There is hope though!
Amy of All Things Frugal, Craft, Tasty shares one of the simplest recipes I’ve seen for a Natural Allergy Relief Drink. There are just 3 ingredients. One of them is local honey and Amy shares an interesting theory. Local bees collect pollen in your area and it ends up in the local honey. If you eat this local honey you can build up immunity to the pollen in your area. It does make sense. You’re really desensitizing your body by getting it used to some of the local allergens that used to plague you.
Another thing I like about Amy’s drink is that it includes Apple Cider Vinegar which promotes good health in many different ways. It’s rich in potassium, acetic acid (helps lower the rise in glucose after eating), helps to maintain proper pH levels, is anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and more! I use Bragg’ Apple Cider Vinegar.
