Well it’s here – the sun and the spring breeze.
As you drive you see it dancing in front of you – the ever horrid – pollen. My son calls them fairies.
These sweet little fairies dance into our sinuses and create an explosion of reactions none which we like.
As we take our Claritin we think “There has to be a better way.”
What are can be done to minimize these dances and the impact of the pollen?
Start your morning with a cup of tea with honey. As the wonderful aroma fills the sinuses it’s steam loosens the passages of mucus from the night’s sleep. The warmth spreads and begins it’s work internally and the caffeine act as a bronchodilator, increasing lung function and productivity. Local honey works to slowly introduce local pollens to your system while the wonderful warmth and sweet goodness coats the throat relieving the scratchiness.
A few tea cookies made with the same local honey and served with a small fruit salad of blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and mango (Foods known to have properties that are natural allergy fighters. Most contain a form of Vitamin-C that can act as an antihistamine and anti-inflammatory, helping to sooth your symptoms quickly and easily.) will allow the stomach to settle a bit – since mild nausea is not uncommon with allergies.
