HERBS FOR ALLERGIES

Allergies are a failure of the immune system and can be annoying and sometimes very serious for the sufferer. Symptoms may include rashes, congestion, itchy eyes, sore throat, headaches, fatigue and nervousness among others. Pollen, dust, smog, plants, perfumes, cleaning solutions and mold are some of the irritants that lead to these symptoms. 

Sometimes infections can occur, usually bacterial infections. Antibiotics, decongestants and antihistamines are normally prescribed for allergies. Some herbs have natural antihistamine properties.
