Suffering from allergens? Other than common medical treatments you can try some alternative relief methods to get rid from the sufferings. Identification of the allergens should be the initial step. From airborne substances to food, anything can carry the allergens, which will cause runny nose, asthma, fever or rashes. Try some natural relief methods and stay away from allergies.

Herbal methods
Other than medical treatments, I suggest for natural relief methods. There are wide array of herbs, which work like antihistamine and decongestant. There is no danger of using herbs to prevent allergies, however it is safe to use the herbs as prescribed by any medical practitioner. Capsicum contains Vitamin C that improves your immune system and works as natural antihistamine. If you are suffering from respiratory problem from allergens then add few more capsicum in your daily diet. Goldenseal root is another herb that fights as anti bacterial and anti fungal natural medicine. Goldenseal root contains 'berberine' that acts as antibiotic and reduce mucous from nasal tissues. White pine is a significant natural antioxidant that gives you quick relief from chest congestion.

Chinese relief method
Parallel to herbal relief methods you can also try 'Acupressure' an ancient Chinese treatment to fight against allergies. Acupressure will maintain the flow of energy in proper direction inside the body and remove toxins. Acupressure is a Chinese massage where the masseur uses his/her thumbs, elbows and palms and applies pressure on different parts of your body. So if you are against medical treatment of allergies, acupressure can be a great help to improve your immune system by removing internal toxins, which acts as allergens.

Self help relief methods
Are you suffering from dust allergies? Stay away from dust to get relief from asthma and runny nose. It is observed that people, who have dust allergy, suffer from asthma and runny nose. Clear your bedroom, vacuum carpets and use air purifiers inside the room to ensure fresh and dust free atmosphere. This will give you relief inside the room. Apart from this, you have to fight against dust allergies when you are outside roaming around the city. You can use filter mask to prevent dust. It is easy to carry and prevent you from allergies, which cause from dust. Finally, I can suggest for yoga therapy and proper diet to improve your immune system to prevent allergies.

Other Small Things That You Can Do
Always remember to keep out anything that attracts dust that can trigger off an allergic attack. For instance, do not keep too many stuffed toys or picture frames or uninteresting showpieces, which only act as dust collectors. Try to be in air conditioned environment always.
