Weekly Menu for Spring Allergy Season

By

It is quite annoying when it comes to spring and you have to face with your allergy problems. However, with food allergy, this is a weekly menu for spring allergy season that you may need since the spring is a few months away.

Quercetin foods

Quercetin is a natural substance originated from the plant. It helps fight histamine reaction, one of the allergic responses. Onions, peppers, parsley, etc. all contain quercetin.

Vitamin C foods

Vitamin C helps with a lot of stuff like recharging energy and so on. One more thing vitamin C can help you to reduce the frequency of histamine.

Pineapple

Pineapple is indeed helpful when it comes to controlling allergic reaction. This fruit contains bromelain, an enzyme that eases irritation caused by allergic diseases like asthma.

Omega-3 fatty acid foods

The acid is contained in tuna, salmon, and mackerel. Omega-3 is good for everyone, especially women. Japan has recently found out that omega-3 has a significant effect on lowering allergic rhinitis – or commonly known as hay fever in women.

Probiotic foods

Yogurt drink (Kefir), fermented foods, and kimchi are some of the foods that contain probiotic. This kind of bacteria live in your stomach and has a tremendous effect on treating seasonal allergies, particularly it may help calm you down. Get some yogurt with the label “live active cultures” on it and you are good to go.

Honey

With people bearing pollen allergy, honey may be handy. Honey can help you be more tolerant toward pollen during the season. Try to get some early before spring comes and see if it really helps you. There are just a few studies about this but it is still worth a try.

Garlic

A recent study pointed out that garlic did play a role in controlling allergy. Garlic helps reduce reactions by blocking allergic chemicals from producing. It is recommended to have garlic two to three times a week.

Seasonal allergy may become an annoyance; it doesn’t have to be, however. Just like allergy at home or while traveling, you can also manage seasonal allergy. You just need to be informed of every possibility that may trigger your reaction during the season. Then, plan your way out based on that. Obviously, the safest approach is still to have your medications ready. These foods above are some suggestion adding up to your current treatment for a better result.
