"Ragweed Season To Last Longer..." "...Expected To Be More Brutal"

Late August begins the unofficial start of ragweed season, however the recent weather pattern in some parts of the U.S. have meant an earlier start to the misery for many allergy sufferers. What can you do to prepare yourself for yourself for what promises to be a long, intense fall allergy season?

Pollen Allergy Survival Tips

Even though ragweed is found primarily in the Northeastern, Southern and Midwestern United States, the fact is, some form of the plant can be found in all areas of the country. Therefore, since exposure to ragweed is virtually impossible to avoid, here are some simple survival tips for allergy sufferers:

Minimize outdoor activities when pollen count is highest, usually between 10 am - 4 pm.

Keep the windows closed while traveling in the car to reduce exposure to pollens.

Wash body, hair and clothes as soon as possible after coming from the outside.

Avoid hanging sheets or clothing outside as pollen can collect on them.

Another helper for healthy mucous membranes is the Vitamin A complex.

Some herbalists suggest the use of Sage. While Sage is an excellent herb for eliminating mucus congestion, it should be used in smaller amounts. Sage should be used with caution or avoided by people with a history of seizures.

Together these herbs and vitamins:

Soothe sinus, hay fever and allergy symptoms
Relieve cold symptoms
Boost immune system to help prevent and build resistance to infections
Reduce effects of allergens and allergic symptoms such as runny nose and watery eyes


Over 40 studies show that those taking Vitamin C regularly had fewer allergy problems, respiratory infections and asthma attacks.

Natural healthcare professionals like The Leaflady suggest taking at least 1,000 mg of vitamin C with bioflavonoids three times a day.

Vitamin C reduces the effects of not just pollen, but a wide variety of allergens.

Vitamin C blocks the release of histamine, the substance released by the body that causes bothersome sneezing, itching and nasal congestion.

Nice article on hayfever. I used to be on prescriptions Allegra and Nasalcort, but I am off of them now, due to natural remedies. So the natural stuff you talk about really does work!
