This was another ailment I used to suffer from in a bad way. Like many diseases, there is a spectrum of severity for this particular disease. For some, hay fever means slightly itchy eyes and a bit of a sniffle; for others it means feeling like you have been run over by a truck. I was in the ‘run over by a truck’ hay fever camp.
I really wish they would rename this ‘severe hay fever’ as people just don’t take hay fever seriously. If you do suffer badly, my heart goes out to you. Even more so if every year you find you have to pump your body full of drugs. The good news is that there is a natural remedy, which actually seems to work and I would like to present it to you here. I am not saying it will 100% clear all of your symptoms but there is no harm in giving it a go as unlike most drugs, it’s ‘adverse side effect-free’ (unless you are allergic to the ingredients of course!) It works for me every year and I hope it will work for you.
