Home Remedies--Hay Fever

Well, spring is quickly approaching so this is a good time to post this information about hay fever.

Hay Fever
Hay Fever also known as nasal allergies, pollinosis or seasonal allergic rhinitis is a collection of symptoms. Hay fever is an allergy to dust, pollen or dander in the air. It mainly causes allergy to the eyes and nose. Hay fever is seasonal; however it can last throughout the year if the allergens are present in the air throughout the year. Spring and fall are the two main seasons for hay fever.

Hay Fever Symptoms
Some of the symptoms of hay fever are as follows Coughing, Headache, Itching of nose, mouth, eyes, throat, ear and skin, Red and watery eyes, Runny and stuffy nose, Impaired smell, Sneezing, Sore throat, Wheezing, Fatigue and trouble in sleeping

Home Remedies for Hay Fever
*Steep 1 tsp. fenugreek seed in 1 cup water, covered, for 10 minutes. Drink 1 cup a day to help hay fever symptoms.
*Freeze-dried nettle capsules (Nettle tea also works) Nettle is a blood-cleanser. Similar results may also be found with Chinese Scullcap.
*Add some honey to boiled minced grapefruit and lemon. Have this solution three times a day.
*To stop irritation in your nose, apply little petroleum jelly inside your nose.
*Boil chamomile in water and inhale fumes from the water.
*To "cure" hay fever...from what I've heard...take a tablespoon of LOCAL honey every morning and evening. I heard this second hand and after doing this for 2-3 years someone "cured" their hay fever.

Other Suggestions for Hay Fever
*Avoid going out early in the morning or late in the evening. At this time pollen count in air is comparatively more.
*Avoid using nasal spray continuously for three days. It may increase congestion of nose.
*Avoid smoking and air pollutants.
*After being outside for a long time during the day, wash your hair to avoid inhaling pollen that falls from your hair onto your pillow.
*Wind-dried clothes can become pollen catchers, put clothes in a dryer, or hang them inside to dry, to keep them pollen-free.
*Keep your house and car windows closed and your air conditioner on during spring, summer and fall months. If you don't want cooled air, at least flip on the fan setting. The fan will filter out the offending pollen. During the pollen season, you should clean your air conditioner filter approximately once a month.

A local furniture is having a 5 day sale this week. Rylie's mattress is shot so I'm heading over to the store today to get her a new one. They advertised twin size mattresses for $69. Sounds like a deal (dang near a steal) to me. I got her mattress from a friend nearly 15 years ago when the ex and I first separated. It was a hand-me-down mattress so I don't know exactly how old it is. However, it feels like it is at least 30 years old. One of those mattresses where you can feel every flippin' spring in it.

I'm sure that a $69 mattress isn't going to be the best, but as long as it last for another 10-13 years, I'll be happy. I just wish I had the money to shop for new living room furniture too. Ours is a mish-mash of hand me down stuff. Nothing matches and most of it looks like it's about to fall apart.

I've also got my grandmothers old dining room table. It has 4 leaves that can be put in to make it much bigger. But it really needs to be refinished and I have to find a little wheel for the center leg. I'm hoping to get that table refinished and fixed when Rylie starts school in August this year.

Well, I guess it's about that time. I want to get some things done around here before her Highness, Rylie Jo, wakes up.
Have a beautiful day.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
