So the met office has issued a red alert for the next few weeks, pollen is the highest it has ever been due to a very cold spring followed by a warm blast and boom : POLLEN BOMB
Hayfever sufferers unite! Don’t live in misery, take action! ✊👊
I’ll share some other top tips for surviving allergic rhinitis this summer later. But first up, food wise there is SO much you can do.
Firstly: up your immune support foods. 👆Here we have reishi mushrooms 🍄and leeks which I cook off lightly with some raw chopped garlic, whizz up and serve as mushroom pate. #Reishi mushrooms have immune modulating properties - meaning they don’t just support or stimulate the immune system they bring it back into balance making it more effective. So if you have an immune system which is overreacting like in the case of hayfever or autoimmune diseases an immune modulator is going to BALANCE it rather than hype it up.
Onion, leeks and garlic are natural anti inflammatories containing a powerful phytochemical called quercetin which stabilises mast cells to stop the overproduction of histamine (which is what is making your life a misery)
Lastly, google “high histamine foods” and AVOID them until the end of allergy season! Top offender is (sorry summer) alcohol. But also consider other foods that are normally considered healthy such as beans and pulses, nuts, tomatoes and strawberries.
