natural remedies for hayfever – update 2
I’m well and truly in the depths of hayfever season now! As you might remember from last week’s post, I have been using the Qu Chi acupressure band with great success. I found a 60% reduction in symptoms straight away; notably an absence of sneezing fits, streaming nose and itchy eyes.
By the middle of last week, the grasses around here were at their peak and I found myself suffering for it.
Keeping things in perspective, however, I believe my symptoms have still been
dramatically reduced by use of the Qu Chi band. Yes, my eyes have itched, but only once during the day, and very mildly.
I stepped up my ‘beat hayfever with natural remedies’ regime by adding:
Natural hayfever remdies
- Haymax barrier cream
- A steamer in the bedroom at night with eucalyptus and lavender in it
- nightly massages from Mr Green on my feet – he worked around the sinus areas and we used a blend of oils that would knock anyone out!
Using all of these natural and safe remedies meant that I was sleeping half the week instead of none of it, like past years; so this was a definite improvement.
I had one spectacularly bad night on Thursday, where I didn’t sleep at all. I spent the entire night waking myself up because I couldn’t breathe through my nose. This led to dry mouth, sore throat and I’d wake myself up because I felt like I was suffocating.
I tried to sleep in the lounge, in a more upright position, as the room is cooler than our bedroom, but it didn’t work.
I then remembered about the advice to have a shower and wash your hair before bed to get rid of any pollen. So on the Friday, I striped the bed, put fresh laundry on, gave the room a thorough vacuum and indeed had a bath before bed, along with all the other measures.
This definitely helped and, at the end of the second week of using the Qu Chi band, I would most certainly recommend it to people looking for a natural, safe, effective and easy to use remedy.
