13 08 tips allergies easybreathingFollow these simple tips for easy breathing this season. 

In the summer, seasonal allergies become a hindrance to enjoying the outdoors. The team at Restore Integrative Health, a clinic in Toronto that focuses on ensuring optimal health by combining measures of modern and traditional medicine, recommends three tips to treat and prevent your symptoms so you can enjoy the long-awaited months of sunshine.

1. Loosen mucus through eucalyptus steam inhalations. Simply add 10 to 12 drops of eucalyptus essential oil into a medium-sized bowl with two cups of boiling water and create a tent with a towel. Inhale the steam through the nose.

2. Lessen the reaction to pollen by taking unpasteurized local honey daily. The pollen in local honey is the same pollen we are exposed to in the air. By having this pollen in your diet regularly the immune system builds tolerance and lessens our allergic symptoms.

3. Finally, take preventative measures all-year round, including contrast showers, taking vitamin D3 supplements, echinacea root and probiotics.
