When you have a problem with seasonal allergies, it is going to be as a result of different things that may be in the air at that time of year. Most of us think that it is just a matter of various types of pollen, but it may also be polution that is in the air, or perhaps in time of year whenever mold or mildew counts are high. Regardless of why it is that you are suffering from seasonal allergies, there is something that you can do for it that tends to be able to help in almost every situation.
This is not some sort of miracle drug that you're going to need to go talk to your doctor about, it is actually something that is available in almost every store in your area. I'm talking about honey, nature's way of helping us to deal with allergies. If you plan on using honey in order to overcome your allergies, there are some very specific things that you need to understand in order for it to work properly. Here are some of those things that you should keep in mind.
First of all, any honey that is going to be beneficial for dealing with seasonal allergies must come from the area in which you are having those allergies. For example, if you live in Florida and have allergies during the springtime, it would not help you to eat honey which is from Pennsylvania. The reason why this is the case is because whenever you eat honey, it is going to be made by the honey bees from the pollen that you are actually allergic to. Whenever you eat honey that is not from the area in which you live, you're actually building your body up against pollen that may not be a problem for you at all. That is why it is a good idea to get honey from an area that you are planning on visiting in order to build up your immunity to allergens.
Another thing to keep in mind is that most of the honey that you pick up off of the shelf of the grocery stores is going to be dead honey. Any honey, or any other food for that matter which is heated at 115°F or higher will kill the enzymes in it. It would be beneficial if you looked for honey that was unheated and unfiltered, as this is what is really going to give you the benefits that you need for your allergies.
