Pollen allergies and headaches are often said to be unrelated, but if suffer from them year after year and then suffer from the related pains they cause, they become very related.
They hurt and in most cases what you have tried does not work very effectively.
In some cases you may have gone to your allergist or regular doctor several times but the splitting headache that rests right in the middle of your eyes remains there.
It is not your imagination; it is very, very real.
But there may be two very effective solutions that most of the medical community will not tell you about.
Two solutions that are very inexpensive and have existed for thousands of years but several people have still not tried them.
Natural Honey and Fever-few may be the answer you are looking for.
A seasonal allergy is an allergic reaction to tiny egg-shaped powder like grains that are released; or if they really affect you, you might say that they are hurled at you.
To make it even worse, they are not just spring time releases as they can occur in the spring, the summer, or the fall.
The only real relief you have is the winter months.
Pollen allergies and headaches that result can come from trees, weeds, and even grass.
They are carried by the wind or by insects that use the pollen to pollinate other plants that are similar in nature.
When this pollen hits you, it can affect your eyes, nose, lungs, and in some cases, even your skin.
All of them could be the cause of your head pains.
There are also some experts that will tell you that pollen spread by insects such as honey bees does not cause seasonal pollen allergies and headaches, only pollen that is carried by the wind.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Spring time pollen allergies and headaches are usually caused by trees, summer time forms by grass, and fall forms by weeds.
If all of these pollen's safely reached their targeted designation, there would be no issues, but they don’t.
A lot of them end up in your nose, eyes, or throats and are often referred to as hay fever or rose fever.
Your body has several natural defense mechanisms to fight these allergies as well as other types of allergen.
Your nose, mouth, eyes, and lungs are the first line of defense.
However, if they are severe enough, it will pass quickly though these defenses, and when that happens, there is a series of events that take place.
Your body produces an antibody called IgE that binds allergens together. These antibodies than attach with each other in forms of blood cells to release a wide variety of chemicals.
One of those chemicals is histamine, and this chemical causes most of the symptoms that you are suffering from.
This is why most all over the counter medications contain histamine.
It is somewhat effective for some people in reducing the pollen allergies and headaches, but for several people it is only that, somewhat effective.
In addition, there are several potential side effects from histamine such as dry mouth, potential interactions with alcohol, and in some cases could actually cause intoxication like affects.
The key to using honey in fighting pollen allergies and headaches is that it must be local honey, and the more local the better.
Most of the affects that you will suffer from will come for something that is producing pollen that you are being exposed to over and over again.
Otherwise, you would not have the continuous headaches and allergy symptoms.
It could be the plant or shrub in your front yard or your neighbor’s yard, or it could something that is growing in fields if you live in the country and the livestock is eating it.
But you are constantly exposed to it.
The misconception from experts that tell you the causes of the vast majority of pollen allergies and headaches is from non-flowering plants that honey bees do not pollinate, leave out one major factor.
Several of the pollen producing plants is what are referred to as amphipilous, which means that they are pollinated by both bees and the wind.
But they seem to miss this step.
It may be only a small part of what the honeybee collects in his daily business, but it can make all the difference in the world to your condition.
Honeybees collect pollen from several species of plants in the areas that they work in.
Taking a couple of teaspoonful’s a day of local honey or eating it on bread or a biscuit will give your immune system a tremendous boost.
The best results will come from starting the process before the pollen allergies and headaches season starts, and then eating small amounts of honey from spring until fall.
It will be like taking several allergy shots but in most all cases it is much more effective.
There are also several other benefits from honey.
It contains vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, and Vitamin C, as well as small amounts of copper, iodine and zinc.
It can turn your entire pollen allergies and headaches around very quickly.
Fever-few is a member of the sunflower family and has been used for centuries in Europe and was found only in Europe.
It has also been a folk medicine remedy for head pains of all kinds, arthritis, and fevers for centuries. The actual term is a Latin derivative that means fever reducer.
Because of its success, it is now found throughout Europe, Australia, and North America.
It has an active compound known as parthenolide and it appears that this compound helps to relieve muscle spasms.
However, it is also particularity effective in constricting blood vessels in the brain.
It is the opinion of many experts that blood vessels that grow, even if just slightly in the brain, cause the vast majority of headaches, especially migraines and pollen allergies and headaches.
It exploded in popularity in Great Britain in the 1980’s where several tests were conducted and over 70% of those tested showed immediate improvement when using Fever-few in both migraine and allergy headaches.
Fever-few is available fresh, freeze dried, or in capsule tablet, or liquid extract form.
It does have potential side effect if you are subject to bleeding easily or taking blood thinner medications.
If you are allergic to chamomile, ragweed, or yarrow, you could be allergic to Fever-few.
However, if you are not and local honey is used in conjunction with it, the pollen allergies and headaches you suffer may no longer exist.
It’s your body and your pain. Put these two natural remedies to the test and you be the judge.
You may be totally surprised by the results.
