Antihistamine Advice

5 posts in this topic

The antihistamine threads on here haven't been updated in years, so I was hoping someone could give me advice on what to take for environmental allergies. I used to take a sodium chloride solution prepared by a naturopath, but I must have become immune to it because my allergy symptoms are back. I tried over the counter antihistamines and they were too strong.

I read that stinging nettle and quercetin could help, and so could butterbur but there are some health concerns about butterbur so I didn't want to risk it. Right now I'm leaning towards quercetin and Allerase - anyone had success with these?

Has anyone had success with a natural remedy? I heard of saline solution nasal sprays - are those effective? The allergist I saw believes that my acne is worsened by histamines because I live in a highly allergenic environment.

Did you check this list?

I just started nettle tea. And I'm still working on the bottle of Black raspberry which is supposed to be by far the biggest source of pro-anthocyanins, probably not spelled correctly. I haven't noticed any reduction in my constantly congested nose. I suspect my cats are the culprit. Although, rhinitus is a symptom of hyperkeratinization, just like acne.

Yes, I checked the list and it was helpful. I was trying to see if any users used any of the items on the list for histamine reactions specifically. Nettle tea seems like a good option, and I will look into black raspberry. I went to the health food store and was going to get quercetrin supplements, but they were all mixed with other ingredients like citrus and bromelain....has anyone had results with quercetrin? For now, I just went with Enzymedica Allerase and will try to find a good quercetrin supplement if this doesn't work out.

Allerase has amylase and other enzymes that are supposed to boost the immune system against allergies and also help with digestion and the breakdown of sugar. Do you know if these enzymes will work well as anti-histamines?

I also added cherries to my diet recently, and that seems to be helping with inflammation.
