Allergy season is in full bloom here in El Paso so here are five simple ways to prevent the onset of allergies.

I never really suffered from allergies until I moved to El Paso and soon after I started having allergy attacks. My allergies got so bad that I was popping antihistamines like candy. I decided to opt for a holistic approach at the time because I had no insurance. Honestly, the following tips have worked like magic – especially after taking the apple cider vinegar and local honey, I am proud to report that since incorporating the following I have been allergy-free for the last 10 years.

Of course, as with all dietary supplements make sure you check with your doctor before taking anything regularly as all bodies and medical histories vary.

Wash Hands & Face Often

Wash your face and hands after being outside to help to remove pollen and even more so now that the novel coronavirus is looming over us.

Change Out Clothing

Change your clothing after being outdoors - this will limit the amount of pollen that you bring indoors to your home.

Wear Sunglasses

Wearing sunglasses has many benefits including shielding pollen from your eyes.

Take An Extra Shower

Taking a shower in the morning before beginning the day and after you’ve been out will help minimize pollen from being transferred onto your bedding.

Apple Cider Vinegar

I am a huge believer in apple cider vinegar. Not only does it boast many health benefits but taking it will also help keep allergies at bay. I take a shot’s worth of apple cider vinegar diluted in a cup of water every morning and before bed.

Local Honey

Local honey that is produced in and around El Paso may help to prevent allergies because it helps to develop a tolerance to the pollen that is prevalent in our area. You can even mix it with the apple cider vinegar to make it easier to drink.

Vitamin C

Apparently, Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that also doubles as an antihistamine. If Vitamin C is missing from your diet you could try adding, oranges, grapefruit, or kiwis to get some of the benefits.
