Tis the Season for Sniffles and Sneezing

After an unusually warm winter in the northeastern United States, allergy season has arrived early this year. In years past I would have been resigned to taking over the counter medication to alleviate my symptoms. In fact, up until 2014 I was a bundle of sniffles and post-nasal drip delight for two to three months out of each year. This was accompanied by biannual sinus infections that required prescription antibiotics. Finally, after several years of using this tried and true method I would like to share with you how I have remedied my symptoms.

Raw honey is one of nature's most delicious treats that also happens to offer allergy relief as one of its many health benefits. 

When making a decision about which honey to purchase you should always opt for locally sourced, raw honey. Not only is the flavor unparalleled, but it is created by local bees using the pollen in your area. Taking one teaspoon a day helps build up your immunity to the allergens in your area and over time you will stop experiencing symptoms. Sometimes finding local honey can be difficult, so I suggest doing a search for apiaries in your city or county. If that proves to be a dead end, try a local farmer's market. This is actually the best way to find your honey because the owners of the apiary will be there to assist you with any specific questions and give you some background on where they source their honey.  Now go out there and enjoy spring as it is meant to be experienced!
