Allergies

There are also different types of allergic reactions that lead to the release of different molecules in the immune system. These molecules are, for example, histamine, prostaglandins, immunoglobulins, mast cells, lymphocytes and others. Their release leads to inflammation and the occurrence of specific symptoms of varying severity.

The symptom of an allergy can be: skin rash, rhinitis, conjunctivitis, cough or bloating, as well as an asthma attack, atopic dermatitis, anaphylactic shock or circulatory failure. In one person, one organ is affected, such as the nose, while in another, the entire organ system, such as the respiratory system, is affected. Depending on the type of allergic reaction, the symptom may occur immediately or after some time.

Allergy symptoms can be very bothersome, but unfortunately, allergies are something that cannot be cured. However, you can do something to reduce your exposure to allergens or relieve symptoms. The most important is prevention, which consists in avoiding the allergen through, for example, an elimination diet, avoiding walks during the pollen of the allergenic plant, avoiding contact with the allergenic animal hair, regular cleaning if you are allergic to dust and mites, lowering the humidity of rooms if you are allergic to mold.

Antihistamine herbs
The classic way to relieve allergy symptoms is to use antihistamines, which block the activity of histamine and thus inhibit the formation of symptoms. Herbs can also help here. There are allergy herbs that inhibit the activity of histamine and other molecules that cause allergic symptoms. In the case of a strong allergy, herbs cannot always replace medications, but they are worth supporting.

What herbs for allergies?
Herbs for inhalant allergy (hay fever)

One of the leading herbs for inhalant allergies is chamomile. In herbal medicine, Roman chamomile (Anthemis nobilis) is mainly used, but common chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla) will also work. Both chamomiles, as well as oils and extracts obtained from them, have the ability to inhibit the release of histamine from mast cells.

Another well-known plant used in allergies is stinging nettle, which is an excellent herb for inhalant allergies. Nettle works by blocking histamine receptors. Nettle leaf infusions and extracts therefore help to reduce allergic symptoms caused by pollen allergy, such as hay fever.

Spirulina can also help relieve the symptoms of inhalant allergy. It is a plant with a widely proven antihistamine effect. Studies have shown that when taken daily, it relieves allergic rhinitis and cough, and also strengthens the immune system.
