Limit your outdoor activities in the afternoon hours when pollen counts are highest https://www.flonase.com/news/allergies/stay-outdoors-longer-this-fall-allergy-season/
Grab a pot of raw honey from the local farmers’ market next time you shop for produce. If pollen is your (seasonal) archenemy, ingesting raw honey that’s populated and harvested by local bees can lower your immune response to the offensive pollen in the air.
Make vacuuming a priority. While it’s another thing to add to your “to-do” list every week, vacuuming can go a long way in keeping allergens to a minimum. In fact, you should consider running the “sweeper” at least once per week – if not twice http://blog.mattressfirm.com/sleep-health/a-fall-guide-to-reducing-allergies-in-your-home
Change the filters in your furnace before turning it on for the first time in the fall http://blog.cincinnatichildrens.org/healthy-living/fall-allergies-part-ii-how-to-help-your-child/
When allergies hit, I mixed a teaspoon of organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar with “The Mother” (that part is important) into a glass of water and drank this three times a day. http://wellnessmama.com/8370/allergy-relief-remedies/
Opt for a diet rich in anti-inflammatory foods, like fresh, organic veggies and high-quality proteins, like wild-caught salmon and grass-fed beef. These are all full of allergy-fighting minerals and vitamins.
Daily bathing can remove these allergies from your hair and skin and protect them from being transferred throughout your home.
Use an Air Purifier. Air purifiers have filters that can help remove pollutants and allergens, like mold, pet dander and pollen, from the home. They are designed to clean the air in your home, thus improving the air quality that your family breathes. Keep an air purifier in a common area of your home, and you will see how quickly it can help symptoms improve.
Bathe Fido once or twice a week with a fragrance-free pet shampoo to wash away any allergens that may be clinging to the fur, and to remove excess dander.
This is a good list of strategies to start with to help with when dealing with fall allergies. If you notice many of tips revolve around getting rid of allergens in your living space. A complimentary deep cleaning of a high traffic room from MAB Air Solutions can be a great start to eliminating or at least buffering symptoms within the home.
