British Summertime is on the horizon - 6 weeks and counting! Whilst many are planning their holidays to sunny beach resorts, hay fever sufferers are prepping hibernation tactics, hoping that the pollen count doesn't skyrocket.
If this sounds all too familiar, the pollen season can be a miserable time having to deal with the unwanted symptoms that ensue.
Hay fever is driven by antibodies to specific pollens. When this pollen enters the eyes, nose or throat - it can cause a series of reactions leading to our mast cells releasing histamine, which causes a lot of unpleasant symptoms like sneezing and itching (all the bad stuff)!
Luckily, there are natural ways which can help support your defences with alternative therapies helping hay fever relief, before British Summertime is upon us.
