8 of the strangest allergy cures from around the world

Just a little light relief for you today, with some allergy cures. I know, I know, we all get fed up with all the people we meet who have such great advice for us that will surely cure us for good. You know the types; try this reiki treatment, drink this aloe juice, take homeopathy and all your allergies will be cured. There are so many so called ‘allergy cures’ and not to mention all the ‘eczema cures’ I’ve tried. Some stuff helps yeah, but ultimately these are life-long conditions we learn to live with.

Sadly there is no real allergy or eczema cure (yet – we can all live in hope) but there are loads of things you can do to improve your control on coping with the situation. Just trawl this blog for some of those and post a question below for some tips and advice.

Anyway, back to these eight strange allergy cures from around the world… I just thought I would share them to put a smile on your face and help you through the day.

There are some interesting ones here from eating foods rich in quercetin such as onions, using neti pots, growing facial hair and eating tomatoes. Some of them might help, others will not. What do you think? Have you tried anything that really helped to cure or relieve your allergies? Whether you have hayfever, are allergic grass pollen, dust or tree pollen, some of these may be able to help. But don’t get excited – I don’t think any of them will cure you.

If you know me, next time you see me, be warned… I am now growing a beard!

  1. I am so growing a ‘tache! This, combined with my delightful onion-and-spicy-food breath could put paid to my social life – but at least I won’t be sneezing! Love this article – there’s nothing like a good laugh to open the airways 🙂

  2. Just cancelling my next wax. Great thing about excess hair – hides the nettle rash…

  3. Essential Oils: In no way will they ‘cure’ allergies, but they provide natural plant compounds that help your body work better. Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint taken internally or diffused in the air provides relief for many, many people suffering from seasonal allergies. There are many other essential oils or blends which can improve your wellness. RonMontesi.marketingscents.com.

  4. eczema and tomatoes? Tomatoes are known to exacerbate eczema in enough people that I walked into a doctor’s office, she looked at my eczema and, after performing a skin test for other allergens, suggested I try cutting out tomatoes. Went home, ate tomatoes, deduced she was right. In my case, I’ve had to cut out all nightshades.

    • Fantastic Elena, thanks for sharing. I seem to be OK with other nightshades but might try reducing as slight flare up at the moment. It’s a constant learning curve with eczema.
