Super Pollen Attack Series: Pt 3
In parts 1 and 2 of the Super Pollen Attack series, herbs and aromatherapy, respectively, were examined for their anti-“super pollen” properties. In the final part of the series, we’ll be taking a look at healing crystals which can positively impact hayfever symptoms.
A Few More Super Pollen Busting Tips
Before we get into super pollen busting crystals, here are a few more low-tech tips to help protect yourself during hayfever season:
- Eat curry: Curry made with plenty of garlic, ginger and chili will open up nasal passages; turmeric is anti-inflammatory in nature and may reduce inflammation related to the enzyme A2 in the body, which is stimulated by pollen.
- Eat honey: Honey contains pollen and some people find that eating honey from their local area seems to reduce sensitivity

- Eat Your Fruit & Veg: Onions, apples and pineapples all contain quercetin, which is believed to prevent the inflammation associated with hayfever.
