As peak allergy season approaches Pakistan, a film of dust permeates the air and is making a lot of us very unhappy — and sick. Of course, you should rush to the ER if your asthma aggravates, but if you’re not a fan of anti-allergies, these natural remedies have been found to be very effective for seasonal and other dust sensitivities. As compiled from wellnessmama.com and Today News, here are tips to help you breathe easier while minimising the dreaded itch and cough.
Apple cider vinegar
Okay, so this concoction is more than just for seasoning or weight loss help! Apple cider vinegar is often recommended for a variety of health conditions, but many don’t know that dust allergy relief (and heartburn relief) is one of them. The theory is that its ability to reduce mucous production and cleanse the lymphatic system makes it useful for dust-related allergies.
For optimal allergy relief, mix a teaspoon of unfiltered apple cider vinegar into a glass of water and drink thrice a day. This will help banish acute allergy symptoms such as coughs and nausea, which are exacerbated when dusty winds are out there to get you.
Get Rid of Dust Mites with Natural Home Remedy
Keep your home sanitary
Do you find yourself coughing and itching like a maniac during ‘dust season’? People with allergies fare better when dust and grime are kept to a minimum indoors. Try not to use aerosol sprays or products containing harsh chemicals or odours that may worsen your already irritated dust-infused airways. But your home will need more than a casual dusting with a dry cloth, which just propels dust allergens into the air.
Instead, wipe down hard surfaces and floors with a slightly damp cloth. Also, bleach kills mold that might have travelled along with the dust through your windows. Wipe down surfaces in your bathroom as needed to live life cough-itch-free!
