Suffer from Spring Allergies when Northern Virginia Blooms?

Thursday, March 6, 2008

Brambleton and all of Virgina is lovely in the spring. With a plethora of spring and summer flora and fauna getting ready to bloom, Here is a great set of tips from South Riding Acupuncture’s Rachal Lohr-Dean:

“Spice it up! Spicy dishes can thin mucus secretions and clear nasal passages. Try adding cayenne pepper or ginger to your foods. Ginger is a natural antihistamine and decongestant. It may provide some relief from allergy symptoms by dilating constricted bronchial tubes.”

Happy breathing, everyone. 

May your “few and far between” sneezes always be blessed, too.

~~ Kae Davis
