Symptoms of Allergies

Allergies manifest themselves in different ways and the degree of sensitivity to allergens varies among individuals. Therefore two people may be allergic to the same allergen but may exhibit different reactions.

In response to an allergen, the human body releases a chemical known as histamine that dilates the blood capillaries, increases the flow of blood, and causes inflammation and itching in the affected area.

Frequently observed symptoms of allergies are:

Congestion Lethargy
Breathlessness, wheezing, asthma
Headache or migraine Depression, anxiety, nervousness Diarrhea
Fever Eczema
Watery eyes or dry eyes
Flu symptoms Conjunctivitis
Earache or temporary impaired hearing
Dizziness Vomiting Hives
Grogginess Hay fever
Swelling of feet and hands

Depending on the severity of the allergic reaction, the symptoms may be mild, moderate, serious or in some cases, fatal.

Natural Cures

Specific allergens may be identified by repeated allergic reactions to a specific matter. Medical tests also aid in identifying specific allergens that may otherwise remain undetected. The most effective way to avoid allergic reactions is to avoid identified allergens. Exercising, practicing yoga and engaging in outdoor activities aid in maintaining the fitness of the body and its ability to overcome allergic reactions. Furthermore, there are some natural cures that contribute to combating the body’s hypersensitivity to allergens.


Bananas are rich in vitamins and nutrition and are also an excellent cure for upset stomachs. Therefore it is not surprising that bananas are beneficial in the prevention and treatment of allergies. The daily consumption of bananas provides the ability to avoid allergic reactions.

Obviously, bananas are not a good option for those who are allergic to them.

Vegetable Juice

Juices contain the entire amount of vitamins and nutritional value of the vegetables and fruits from which they are extracted. Fresh vegetable juice cleanses the body of its toxins and maintains healthiness throughout the systems of the body. The daily consumption of one glass of carrot juice is beneficial in combating allergies. The consumption of 300 milliliters of carrot juice mixed with 100 milliliters of cucumber juice and 100 milliliters of beetroot juice is also recommended. Avoid consuming juices extracted from vegetables or fruits that you are allergic to.


Squeeze half of a lime or lemon into a glass of lukewarm water and mix in one teaspoon of honey. Consume this every morning to eliminate toxins and to effectively fight allergens.

Individuals who are allergic to citrus fruits should refrain from utilizing this remedy.

Nutrient Rich Diet

The benefits of eating healthy should never be underestimated. Following a nutritious diet including vitamins, minerals, proteins, carbohydrates and fibers is necessary for a healthy body, and a healthy body is the primary requirement for fighting allergens. An unhealthy, tired body will easily succumb to infections and allergies and unfit individuals experience allergies for extended durations.

Try to consume locally produced and seasonal ingredients. Eat a large amount of fruit. Avoid unhealthy processed foods that cause lethargy and an increased proneness to infections in the body and avoid mucous-causing foods.

Consuming a daily dose of 100 milligrams of vitamin B5 is useful in treating individuals who are suffering from allergies. Similar results have been observed by consuming a daily dose of 400 milligrams of vitamin E for four to six weeks or from consuming a daily dose of 1,000 milligrams of vitamin C.

Massage and Aromatherapy

Massages are known to be successful in reducing stress and in separating mucous. Massages may be accompanied by certain natural oils including lavender and eucalyptus that aid in further releasing stress and in further separating mucous particles. In addition to using oils while massaging, they may be inhaled alone or through a cloth to obtain successful results.
