Some of the best herbs for allergies are: eyebright, Reishi mushrooms, nettle, Ginko, cinnamon… these tend to reduce the inflammation and peppermint tea helps open up your nasal passages and lungs. And Reishi mushrooms and parsley are a good antihistamine that will help reduce swelling of swollen nasal passages… as does a little bit of horseradish and cayenne pepper. Plus Astragalus root, garlic, elderberry, organ grape, eucalyptus, will boost your immune system and also help with your lungs.
Most of all stop eating wheat, tea, coffee, soy produce, corn products, sugar and chemical food additives of any kind… including artificial colors, sweeteners, and flavors… plus cheese and all dairy products should be eliminated too. Dairy foods are some of the worst foods for allergies, and stay away from all canned foods too… cans are full of chemicals that create allergies.
Eat lots of fresh veggies, nuts, fresh fruits, grains, beans, and seeds… and eat organic as much as possible.
