Spring is here and with that comes seasonal allergies. Many professionals look to natural cures in mother nature to provide relief and comfort to those who are experiencing the many symptoms of seasonal allergies: runny nose, scratchy throat, itchy and watery eyes, coughing and sneezing.
The trees, plants and flowers that look so beautiful in July and August, are the culprits who are responsible for emitting this "deadly pollen" into the air today, causing us today's grief and discomfort.
Not only is it the watery and itchy eyes, tickle in the throat, runny nose, sneezing and coughing, that makes spring life miserable, but it is also the lack of good quality sleep, a direct result of these irritating symptoms, that compounds our springtime misery by driving our moods and energy levels to minimal sustainable levels.
For many, relief from these discomforting symptoms lies in traditional medications. However, for an increasing number of allergy sufferers the road to relief is best paved by Mother Nature, with a variety of all-natural treatments that studies show can help, often without many of the troubling side effects ascribed to traditional care.
Research has proved that using nature-based products can be a very useful way to handle mild allergies and a useful adjunct for more significant allergies. Among those generating the loudest buzz right now is the European herb butterbur, which, has had some very impressive clinical trial results.'
In one study, published in the British Medical Journal, a group of Swiss researchers showed how just one tablet of butterbur four times daily was as effective as a popular antihistamine drug in controlling symptoms of hay fever, without the traditional symptom of drowsiness that sometimes occurs. In a second study, a group of British researchers put their stamp of approval on butterbur's effectiveness in quelling symptoms of grass allergy.
Research has proven that butterbur is an effective natural remedy for those irritating Spring allergies that cause us so much grief.
In this post we have only touched upon a few of the benefits of this amazing herb. If you would like to receive more information on butterbur and the many additional natural benefits that it offers to you and your family, please check out the links below. It would be time well spent.
