Best Home Remedy for Stopping Hay Fever

Thursday, 4 June 2020

It's that time of the year again. Are you suffering from a scratchy throat? Red eyes accompanied by a racking cough? Yes, you guessed it: summer is here, and with it the joys of hay fever. Thankfully, we've got the best home remedy.

Best Home Remedy for Hay Fever

What is Hay Fever?

Hay fever is an allergic reaction to pollen after it comes into contact with your mouth, nose ears or throat. Typically occuring around late March until September, hay fever is a seasonal reaction to flowers blooming and spreading their seed. Unfortunately, around 13 million people in the UK are affected by hay fever, and it can often spring up out of nowhere.

How Do I Know I Have Hay Fever?

Hay Fever Illustration

Hay fever can be confused with other viruses - but it's fairly easy to identify once you know the symptoms:

  • Sneezing and coughing
  • A runny or blocked nose
  • Itchy, red or watery eyes
  • Itchy throat, mouth, nose and ears

 

For most sufferers, hay fever won't leave you feeling like you've been hit by a truck, but it can definitely cause frustration, especially when you want to make the most of the sunny weather.

How Can You Stop Hay Fever?

There's a number of ways you can stop hay fever in its tracks:

  • If you're a severe sufferer, or work in outdoor manual labourer, a pair of wraparound goggles can prevent pollen from reaching your eyes. Our Uvex Ultrasonic Clear Safety Goggles are perfect for the job.
  • Vacuum regularly and dust surfaces with a wet cloth.
  • Shower and change your clothes regularly after you have been outside to wash off pollen.
  • Keep windows and doors shut where possible.

Our Best Home Remedy For Stopping Hay Fever

Whilst the above guidance can be effective, it doesn't tackle hay fever at its source. Cleaning your airways with a natural purifier is the best method for eradicating pollen - and you're wrong if you think this sounds to good to be true.

What Is Salt Therapy?

Natural salts are fantastic, and they’ve been used for thousands of years for all sorts of useful applications, like curing meats against fungus and bacteria. But natural salts are also highly beneficial for your body and can purge impurities such as pollen from your sinuses. Let’s take a look at the science behind them.

Osmosis Diagram

Osmosis and water solubility work the same way in our body as in a lab test tube. When you introduce very impure water to a solution with pure water, the water will seek equilibrium by moving from the area of greater purity to an area of lesser purity. For a real-life application of this, let's imagine you're suffering from a sprain. You're bruised and swollen, so you take a salt bath:

  • You are surrounded by very impure water, because the water is filled with salt.
  • Your body is also naturally filled with water, but this water is much purer because there is no salt.
  • Therefore, the salt water in the bath will pull fluid from your body in order to create an equilibrium.
  • Any swellings caused by a build-up of fluid will be drained, as the water is drawn through the skin and into the tub.

Introducing the Cisca Easy Salt Pipe

The Cisca Easy Salt Pipe is one of the UK’s number one forms of halotherapy (alternative salt medicine). The Easy Salt Pipe is made almost entirely of plastic, while retaining high durability. A single pipe contains 15g of Halite salt. This will last for up to six months of daily use without ever the need of a refill. The pipe’s size and quality make it perfect for those who are constantly travelling as it is incredibly lightweight and easy to fit into most bags.

How Does the Cisca Easy Salt Pipe Treat Hay Fever?

To reap the benefits of a salty cleanse, you need something that can safely administer clean salt air into your body. That’s where the Cisca Easy Salt Pipe comes in. Using the Cisca Easy Salt Pipe is like breathing in fresh sea air and it’s incredibly easy to use:

  • As air flows over the salt crystals in the pipe's filter, it is purified and enriched with microscopic salt particles.
  • Breathing this back in purges your throat and sinuses of excess pollen.
  • This opens up your nasal passages and airways so you can breathe more freely.

What Is Halite Salt?

Originally developed in Hungary, the Cisca Salt Pipe was invented to deliver salt therapy in a portable and accessible form. Each individual pipe filter contains 15 grams of Halite salt crystals. These are incredibly pure, having been formed in Hungarian caves around 20 million years ago!

Cisca Easy Salt Pipe and Hay Fever

Using the Cisca Easy Salt Pipe at least once a day will provide your body with the soothing cleanse it needs to eradicate hay fever. Not only will the natural salt air open your airways, but it will encourage the expulsion of mucus and pollen sitting on your chest. So what are you waiting for? Give the Cisca Easy Salt Pipe a go and notice the difference.
