The Hayband and Qu-Chi Band are a natural alternative to help relieve the symptoms of hay fever. There are many hay fever remedies on the market including tablets and nasal sprays however the hayband is completely natural and is suitable for children.

They are both a highly effective, clinically tested, drug-free product to help with hay fever relief and aid the relief of symptoms of Allergic Rhinitis.The bands are fast acting and should be worn before symptoms start, however they can be worn once symptoms of hay fever are noticed. The bands are very easy to use. Once in place just underneath the elbow joint, you can wear either band day and night without noticing it's there. The Qu-Chi band or The Hayband can be worn on either arm and is suitable for people of all ages.The great thing about the Hayband and Qu-Chi bands is that they can both be used in conjunction with other hay fever medication or simply on their own.

Both the Hayband and Qu-Chi band is machine washable so they can be used again and again until the hay fever season is over. One size fits all so there is no need to worry about the band not fitting properly. Hay fever is caused by an allergy to pollen. Common symptoms are a runny, itchy and/or blocked nose, sneezing, and itchy eyes. Hay fever is caused by an allergy to pollen and the symptoms are due to the immune system reacting to the pollen. Cells on the lining of the nose and eyes release histamine and other chemicals when they come in contact with pollen. This causes inflammation in the nose (rhinitis) and eyes (conjunctivitis). Sometimes the sinuses and throat can also be affected.
Hay fever is also called seasonal allergic rhinitis because symptoms tend to occur at the same time, or in the same season, each year. Hay fever is very common. It affects 2 in 10 people in the UK. It often first develops in school age children and during the teenage years.
