Spring is in the air. Why is it that such a slogan evokes a notion of birds happily chirping away and verdant flowers everywhere? The reality for most of us is that our cars and basically anything outdoors is shrouded in a cloud of yellow dust.
With the yellow haze that surrounds us all during pollen season, there’s the other side effect besides ugly yellow dust: allergies. Headaches, sore throat, watery eyes, runny nose…so what’s an allergy sufferer to do for some relief? Sure, you can head to your doctor for a script. Ten other things may go wrong with you but that runny nose will go away.
Now, I’m not doctor, and there have been no scientific studies to back me up on this, but there may be a better way to go about trying to cure your allergies, a natural way. The answer is…Honey.
Honey works much in the same way a vaccination would. Stick with me here. During pollination, pollen spores are transferred to honey. By eating honey, the honey introduces pollen (in small amounts) to your body. Your body then becomes used to it and develops an immunity to pollen and therefore, allergies associated with it.
According to research, this must be local honey (produced within 50 miles of where you live). This makes sense as the pollen must match up with the bees that produced it to develop any kind of inoculation. Lucky for you, Natures Garden carries several varieties of locally produced honey.
