ALLERGY SEASON


As we head into spring, you might be fearing what this year's allergy season will bring. While alternative medicines might not work as well as conventional drugs such as Claritin or Allegra, you might like to know how altering your diet can help your body deal with allergies.
First, a diet rich in fish--especially sardines, salmon, or tuna--can help by providing Omega-3 fats that help your body produce inflammation-fighting prostaglandins. Not all prostaglandins fight inflammation, but the kind provided by Omega-3 fats do. Omega-3 fats are available in capsule form, though getting them in your diet is probably better.

In addition, foods rich in vitamin E have also shown to help the body fight allergic reactions.
