As the title says... I was wondering if any one had any reccommendations for help with seasonal allergies. Indian Summer / Early Fall is my favorite time of the year up here in New England. But, ironically, it is the time I feel the worst due to seasonal allergies. You know, the kind that make you feel and look tired although you've had plenty of rest, constant sneezing, itchy/watery eyes, the works. Ugh.

I try not to use medication/prescription drugs as much as possible... and am looking for any NATURAL solutions to allergy discomfort. I'm not sure if a certain crystal would aid in this, or an herb of some sort, or anything else that might work from the natural world.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
thanks, joya

The Neti pot has saved me tons of money in doctor bills:

hmmmm... blue lace agate... thanks, I'll look in to that as well. May I ask where you came across this info? Is this something you've personally experienced with this stone -- or just info you've aquired in your "travels"?

For sinus and hayfever I use Horseradish, Garlic and vitamin C tablets which my doctor receommended cause she knows I don't like taking perscription drugs. I have also heard the heb feverfew meantioned but I have never used it. Unsure for crystals but will have a look when i am at home and have all y books and things. Blue stones should be good as general healers though.

Decided to revive this old one instead of a new one.

My boyfriend gets hayfever in the spring, so I wanna help him out, even though it'll probably be small. Some people responded to this.. but never got back to it? ^^

This sounds gross but it does work, even for colds. A netti pot, and "Alkalol" it comes in a clear plastic brown bottle. It's a soothing mucus solvent and cleaner, and it's all natural.

I use this once in a while and I haven't
had a cold in 3 years.

The Neti pot is the best thing I ever did for my poor sinuses. A friend told me about it over 15 years ago, and after she explained how to use it, I unfortunately said, "No way...that's disgusting!" Last year my sinuses were a wreck and I saw the pot in our local natural food co-op. I bought the pot and the fine salt to use with it. It only took a day or so to be able to breathe normally again...I had forgotten how WONDERFUL that can be. No more meds (over the counter and otherwise); no more doctors; no more sinus hassles.

Fluorite is great for sinus problems - I've been using it this year :)

KaiMoonshadow, in what form do you use the Flourite? How do you use it? Thank you.

Clear quartz is very good at boosting the immune system. Also, because clear quartz generates so many healthy negative ions it's good for counteracting aire-borne allergies and for clearing up the respiratory, bronchial and nasal passages. There are a lot of other things that are helpful in the home to get rid of things that cause allergies, such as water fountains, burning bamboo charcoal, beeswax candles, small potted pine trees, and mechanical negative ion generators. You can do a google search on negative ions and will get lots of helpful information. But for outside I'd recommend wearing clear quartz over the throat chakra for the respiratory problems, and clear quartz at the ears to help the itchy eyes, runny nose and ringing or cotton-wool feeling in the ears.

Hi spinningspider,
Sorry for the late reply - I have a Fluorite chip bracelet which I wear most days and cleanse/charge regularly and I also have a little palm stone which I keep in my pocket on days when I have particular problems... You could also try keeping a piece by your bed or on your desk at work, but make sure to cleanse it regularly :) Hope that helps!

Thank you, KaiMoonshadow! How exactly do you go about cleansing/charging the Flourite, please?

I have major problems with my sinuses and have to buy prescription medicines but I prefer to use natural therapies. These are some that I love to use:

- steam with eucalyptus oil
- apple cider vinegar
- garlic oil tablets
- drinking loads of water and herbal teas (lemon and/or ginger)

Anything for the immune system is great, vitamin C, zinc.

I also like to use a salt water spray for my nose.

Ive never seen a neti pot and dont know how they are used but by the way spinning spider describes how good it is, I think I'd like to find out more about it.
