Why should you avoid certain foods? Some contain histamines and can cause inflammation and mucus production. Not exactly the kinds of things you want to ingest when your body is already serving up a snotty nose. The good news is that there are also some foods that will help! Food that tends to be anti-inflammatory and have sulfur components or spice to them will help open the sinuses and provide you with some relief.
Dr. Kate has even more recommendations of changes you can make in her three-pronged natural approach to treating seasonal allergies. If you think you need more support, we’re here for you!
