Hay fever, also known as allergic rhinitis, is an allergic inflammatory condition of the nasal passages that affects a large portion of Americans. For some individuals, allergies are a seasonal manifestation. For others, allergies are a year-round challenge.
The term “hay fever” originated in the early 1800s when individuals seemed to suffer allergy symptoms during the hay growing season. The symptoms commonly seen with hay fever and seasonal allergies are watery, itchy eyes, nasal congestion, excessive mucous production, and sneezing. Histamine, which is produced by the mast cells, creates a cascade of events that are meant to flush out the offending substance from the body. That is why antihistamines are commonly used to address the symptoms of histamine release. However, antihistamines come with some adverse side effects.
Fortunately, several natural substances may help to manage allergy challenges without the side effects found in traditional antihistamine products.
